Dallas Cop Killed Escorting Hillary

Hillary just cannot catch a break.
A Dallas police officer died Friday when his motorcycle struck a pillar on the Houston Street viaduct as he was escorting Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton to a rally in Oak Cliff. The motorcade was heading south on the viaduct when the officer apparently lost control of his bike about 9:20 a.m. "He just lost control and hit the pillar," said Assistant Chief Ron Waldrop, commander of the criminal investigations bureau.

After the rally, a somber Mrs. Clinton expressed sorrow over the officer's death. "We are just heartsick over this loss of life in the line of duty," she said. Mrs. Clinton said the accident should serve as a reminder of the sacrifices law enforcement officers make. She said it is important that people respect and appreciate their service. At her next stop, a rally in Fort Worth, Mrs. Clinton named the officer and expressed condolences to his family. She apologized to the crowd of about 1,000 people and said she could not conduct a rally.
Classy of them to cancel the rally, however.
