"At every opportunity we need to let those folks know we appreciate the job they do", McDaniel said. It's covered with badges from law enforcement agencies in Minnesota and the country. He along with others in attendance said they hope the climate changes soon towards police, and until then they will honor their fallen brothers and sisters the best they can.
