The Ultimate Sacrifice - 05/16/14
Since metro police officer Michael Petrina was killed in the line of duty Saturday, it's been hard to think of much else.
By all accounts, this young officer was a rising star in the department having distinguished himself among his peers at the academy.
His death on I-65 while working a traffic accident underscores how dangerous it is to be a police officer.
I'm grateful for the men and women of middle Tennessee who wear that uniform and protect our streets and families like mine.
May they honor the memory of Michael Petrina as they serve middle Tennessee. And may we never forget his sacrifice.
