    I would like to ask people to post there positive thoughts concerning this story. Forget about those that are negative, there thoughts are there own and do not mean anything. That said I would like to thank Pat Reavy for an incredible story concerning Officer Francom. You're recapturing of the events of the funeral made me tear up. Very, very moving. To the family and friends of Francom my deapest sympathy go out to you all.

    "Was it REALLY necessary to have all 4 channels have complete coverage? KSL had 4 hours."

    I guess the Officer Francom's widow and two small girls should call you and apologize for interupting your viewing of "Days of Our Lives" or "The Young and The Restless," by broadcasting their husband/father's funeral.

    Your post made me shake my head in disbelief.

    Allen#2 you should have been at work instead of at home watching the four hours you found so repulsive. You didn't have to, ya know. What in the world was on TV at 10 - 2 PM that keeps you in front of it? Poor, poor you.

    Was it REALLY necessary to have all 4 channels have complete coverage? KSL had 4 hours.

    Why couldn't just one channel fully cover it and stop interrupting regular programming? If we want more details, most of us know there are plenty of hours devoted to the news each evening.

    @newslover....looks like you are accomplishing you goal. Stir the pot (literally)Probably the same guy that jumped in line to 'dis-honor' the fallen UHP officers along the state property that they were protecting.

    Remind me how many officers were wounded and how many shots were fired at Stewart? Hmmmm.

    Hey newslover, let me guess what your next post is. Probably something about how none of this would have happened if we would just legalize drugs, right?

    I also was at the funeral today and have spoke with some of the people involved in this tragedy, the details will come out in due time, trust me. Two little girls no longer have a father, so stop with the conspiracy theories and try to be a decent human being for one day at least.

    And by the way, Stewart never served in combat, nor was he ever deployed according to the Pentagon.

    How bout you give it rest for a day, I was there at the funeral and it is very heart breaking to know that those two kids no longer have a father.

    Tragic... but the 'real story' still isn't out there. The term 'adrenaline junkie' doesn't make anyone feel better about the circumstances of police breaking down the door of this Veterans house and whether Stewart disarmed one of the adrenaline junkies to defend himself in an intense moment after they broke through the door. The DA has put such an exaggerated 'spin' on this story (no bombs-no firearms- no big dope deal- no terroist)by DA Smith-- that has been contradicted several times. Where is the real reporting on this story?
