Hillary Clinton Shows Class for a Fallen Police Escort

As many know by now, a female police officer escorting Hillary Clinton's entourage into Dallas died in the line of duty earlier this morning. Reports are conflicting as to how she was thrown off her motorcycle and landed 30 feet in the opposite road direction. But she performed bravely in the line of duty for our country. Here's Hillary Clinton's statement about the accident:

"I just learned of the death of a Dallas police officer in a devastating accident that occurred as these motorcycle officers were leading our cars to this site. We are just heartsick over this loss of life and I have asked that my condolences be conveyed to the family. I will call them as soon as it is appropriate to do so. I have placed a call to the Chief of Police expressing my sympathy. This reminds us, once again, what our men and women in law enforcement do every single day and it is important that we respect and appreciate their service. I certainly am grateful for all they do for me and more importantly what they do for citizens in cities like Dallas and others across our country."

"I just want to express my deepest condolences to the family and to the Dallas police department on this tragic, tragic loss."

Clinton cut short one of her appearances in Fort Worth so she could visit the officer's family, said MSNBC.

Thank you, law enforcement escort officers. There have been plenty who died in the line of duty, but tried to do their job amiably.

And thank you, Hillary Clinton.
