Mishawaka Indiana lost two fine officers today. I've only covered one officer shooting death before in my 6 year videography career. However this one seemed to hit a little close.
1. I live in Mishawaka, IN. These guys were out there protecting me and my family. I know they protected the whole town, but...
2. The shooting happened less than a mile from my home.
I hate these stories. It's my job to cover the story and let the community know what happened. However it makes you feel empty to videotape grieving officers. My hat is off to the police department though. They have been nothing but professional, and are already paying tribute to their fallen brothers.
