Memorial dedication today for Seattle police officer killed a year ago

A year ago today, a Seattle police officer was killed and another wounded when a car pulled up to their police cruiser and the driver opened fire.

The slaying of 39-year-old Timothy Brenton was the first of six Puget Sound officers to be killed in the line of duty during the last three months of 2009.

Earlier this week, the Seattle Times published a story about a memorial for Brenton in the neighborhood where he was killed and what his family has been through in the past year. You can find that story here.

The memorial is scheduled to be dedicated at 3 p.m. today at theĀ  northwest corner of 29th Avenue and East Yesler Way, the Times reported.

    Wow, I cannot believe it’s been a year already. Very sad and it only means that the anniversary of the death of the three LPD officers is right around the corner. :(

    As much as I hate to say it, but I have no feelings for this.

    The media has run this story into the ground so much into the last couple of days that I am tired of hearing about it. What the media needs to do is let these officers rest IN PEACE.

    I certainly agree, Rowdy_Rob. For everyone’s sake, especially for the healing of the families, it’s way past time to move forward.
