Thousands honor fallen officer during escort through Mobile
MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) —
Thousands lined the streets as officers escorted officer Sean Tuder's body to Mobile Memorial Gardens funeral home Monday.
“I was happy that the community came together and for such a tragic incident," Jada Hosea said.
"It meant a lot to see a lot of people just come together," Zaikera Hosea said.
Hundreds held American flags and hand written signs.
Others saluted and placed one hand over their heart.
Fire fighters and officers stood at over passes and drivers on the opposite side of the interstate stopped to show their support.
"It touches my heart to see our city come together like that, but it breaks my heart for the sadness," one woman said. "It's senseless."
For those who didn't know Officer Tuder, the loss still sends pain throughout the city.
"It's got to stop because we're losing good people and these men come out here every day and they put their life on the line for me and you and it's not right," a woman said.
