Father of Officer Killed in Dallas Asks for Police Memorial for Son
Rick Zamarripa, whose son Patrick Zamarripa was one of the five officers killed in Dallas on Thursday, told Shepard Smith today that he would like to see a memorial for the fallen officers.
Zamarripa said that his son, who served three tours of duty in Iraq with the Navy and was a five-year veteran of the Dallas Police Department, always dreamed of becoming a police officer and was truly committed to serving and protecting his community.
He said that he would like the city to put up a memorial to honor Patrick's sacrifice, so that his two-year-old daughter has something to 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."
"I just hope and I pray that they would establish some kind of memorial for these policemen in Dallas, Texas."
