    Stans funeral was yesterday and man...was it amazing. Senators Ensign and Reid and Director John Clark of the US Marshal Service spoke at his services. The newly formed US Marshals pipe and drum band played along with the Las Vegas Metro pipe and drum band which always gives me goose bumps when they play Amazing Grace.
    Myself and the other Deputys and CSO's who responded and killed the gunman went out later for a true Irish wake with the USMS pipe and drum band. They played all evening and we drank and talked and laughed and told funny stories about Stan.
    Thank you all for keeping Officer Stan Cooper and Deputy US Marshal Gardner in your thoughts.
    Stan was a true hero with 45 years of Law enforcement under his belt.

    To MHoenshell:
    This is exactly what "raw footage" is; some kid (not a journalist, not a professional) on his camera (which is probably on his cell phone). Neither professionally edited nor shot. As for "pretending to be a journalist," that's an unfair judgement call. Most civillians would probably do the same thing.
