Thousands turn out to honor Officer killed in the line of duty

COLLEGEVILLE, Minn. -- The St. John's Abbey has room for 2,000 people. It was full almost an hour before the services honoring slain Cold Spring Police Officer Thomas Decker. Over a thousand others watched a video feed of the services in a nearby auditorium. Decker, a father of four, was killed in the line of duty the week before. "He was a bright light that has been extinguished. Tommy is now at peace," Decker's reverend and neighbor Cletus Connors told the assembled crowd. An estimated 2,300 law enforcement officers from across the Midwest were there to honor the officer's sacrifice. Hundreds of citizens also lined the streets of Cold Spring as a procession of squad cars led the family to Decker's final resting place.

Players abandoned their warm-up and exited the 22,000-capacity facility about an hour before tip-off, an AFP photographer said, adding that the stands were empty at the time.
