We seldom hear of those families affected after a tragic event like Dallas, the focus and rightly so, are of those who lost their lives so tragically in the line of duty, and so in the aftermath of the worst police carnage since 9/11, it’s only fitting that those left behind have something to remember those hero’s by.

Rick Zamarripa the father of slain officer Patrick Zamarripa told Fox’s newscaster Shepard Smith that he wished and wanted a memorial for those fallen officers so that those left behind would remember.

Zamarripa referenced his 2-year old granddaughter stating he wanted something to honor his sons sacrifice and a place where Patrick’s daughter can point to and say "That was my dad."

"She's two years old and everything was taken away from her. And everything was taken away from my son too," Zamarripa said. "He [paid] the ultimate price to protect. He wanted to serve and protect, and he's done that."

He continued: "I just hope and I pray that they would establish some kind of memorial for these policemen in Dallas, Texas."

The 5-who were brutally murdered were ironically protecting those who were marching and demonstrating against the police and although peaceful perhaps harboring some personal animus towards the police were identified along with Patrick Zamarripa as: Brent Thompson, Michael Krol, Mike Smith and Lorne Ahrens.
