    Respect for Fallen Officer


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Photojournalist bbwindow attended the funeral of Alaskan Village Public Safety Officer Thomas Madole, who was shot in the line of duty on March 19, and laid to rest this weekend. He captured a quiet moment of respect where a fellow Alaska state trooper adjusted Madole’s hat atop a memorial display. 'I thought it was a very touching and profound image, capturing the event’s dignity and respect,' said bbwindow, who was covering the funeral for local media. '[Madole] was remembered as a man with a great love for community, his humor, friendship and his faith. He clearly had touched many lives as a public safety officer.'
