Clinton will attend funeral for Dallas police officer

HOUSTON (CNN) - Hillary Clinton will attend funeral services on Friday morning for the Dallas police officer who was killed last week while escorting the Democratic presidential candidate's motorcade.

Clinton will attend the funeral, to be held at 11 a.m. in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, at the request of the officer's mother.

According to the campaign, a Clinton supporter in Texas had been in touch with the local police officer's union, which had been communicating with the officer's mother, who requested Clinton's presence at the memorial.

Senior Cpl. Victor Lozada was killed last Friday after crashing into a barrier along Clinton's motorcade as it traveled through Dallas.

    This is a very respectful thing for Hillary to do. It shows great respect for her fellow man. God Bless Senior Cpl. Lozada and his family during their loss.
