DETROIT — After a somber week of farewells, cops from across the country gathered in Michigan for a final salute to Michael Krol. He’s one of the five cops killed in a Dallas police ambush this month. The 40-year-old’s body was escorted hundreds of miles to his home state.
Family and friends attended a private funeral mass before burying him with honors.
Southwest Airlines reserved one of their largest planes so a “maximum number” of Dallas police would be able to attend the special ceremony.
