To all my friends in the USA, to all those families ripped apart by this tragedy and to all in state of Connecticut and in the USA, my heartfelt sympathies. While any death is tragic, the death of schoolchildren is harder to take in. The events of Friday, 14th December are beyond belief.
Every day our police officers run serious risks.
Please spare a thought on this tragic occasion for families, friends, colleagues and the force at large.
My thanks go to these officers so tragically and brutally killed. My deepest condolences go to those affected by this double tragedy.
