Meridian Shocked by Mayor's Comments at Memorial Service.

In a speech that lasted nearly three minutes, it would be the opening words of Mayor Jimmy Smith the public is focusing on the most.

"Good afternoon, you know I can't go any further without recognizing that Officer Croom is not the first and he won't be the last police officer, unfortunately that will lay their life down for the community".

Shock and embarrassment is how many citizens are describing the mayor’s words for a room filled with mourners and fellow officers of Kennis Croom. “The mayor may have meant well, but it didn't go over well with a city that just lost a police officer in the line of duty.” said one disappointed citizen.
