I was in grade school with Officer Hurt's son Michael. I clearly remember the day this happened and Michael being picked up from school at Bakerfield Elementary in Baker, LA.

My utmost respect to ALL officers that serve and protect every day. Each of them leave families and friends each day, hoping to return home safely.
