Miami, FL (AP) - Florida Gov. Rick Scott and thousands of law
enforcement officers are expected at a funeral service for two
fallen Miami-Dade County police officers.

A motorcade of police officers from almost every city in Florida
will make its way from Vista Memorial Gardens to the
AmericanAirlines Arena in downtown Miami, beginning at 9 a.m.
Monday. The service is planned for 11 a.m.

The officers -- 41-year-old Roger Castillo and 44-year-old
Amanda Haworth -- were killed Thursday while serving a warrant to a
suspected killer, 22-year-old Johnny Simms.

Simms was killed by another officer.

Haworth, a single mother, leaves behind a 13-year-old son.
Castillo, whose wife is also a Miami-Dade police officer, is
survived by three sons, ages 9 to 15.

    Where is the outrage. Two police are killed. I see outrage on another news story about a woman killed trying to outrun the law, but none here... What has this world come to? At least the killer is dead, no tax money wasted on that idiot. And no tax money wasted on the woman who ran from the cops.

    Such a sad story. These individuals who are not of their right mind (not that they have one), have got to stop their violent behaviors and actions.
