On Wednesday, November 2nd, Sergeant Anthony Beminio of the Des Moines Police Department was murdered in his patrol car, one of two area officers to suffer this fate on that day. His funeral was held on Monday, November 7, with over 1,500 law enforcement officers in attendance. Sgt. Beminio was escorted to his final resting place by hundreds of police and other emergency vehicles from nearly that many different departments. I filmed this video of the procession leaving the church and heading north on Jordan Creek Parkway towards the interstate. What is not visible in this video is the sheer number of people who lined the route taken by the procession to show their support for Sgt. Beminio, his family, and all of our law enforcement officers.

Discussion of this video is welcome, but comments that are political or hateful in nature will be deleted.
