Thousands gathered outside the Wells Fargo Center Saturday to watch motorcycle drill teams , police K-9 units and fire department perform at the 59th annual Hero Thrill Show.
Four police officers from the Philadelphia region who died in the line of duty were among those remembered Monday at the annual fallen officers’ ceremony in the state capital.
Philadelphia Police chief inspector Joseph Sullivan says the group recognized “the widow of Officer Brad Fox, the widow of Officer (Brian) Lorenzo from the Philadelphia Police Department, the mother of Officer Moses Walker.”
The alleged killer had been released from prison just ten days before the murder of officer Moses Walker Jr.
Officer Walker’s mother and other relatives say his murder could have been averted had the Board of Probation and Parole done its job.
