Officer Timothy Scott Abernethy was put to rest this morning as thousands mourned his death. Ceremonies were held around Houston as flags were raised to half mast at police stations throughout Texas. As the sun came up this morning the staff and the police cadets from classes 200, 201, 202 and 203 came to attention while Officer Michael Herb played Amazing Grace on his bagpipes in honor of Officer Abernethy. This is what families do, we pull together and continue doing what Tim would have wanted us to do, continue to put crooks behind bars and make this city a safer place to live. Officer Abernethy gave the ultimate sacrifice to do just that, while doing the job he loved.
