Gentle Giant on the Thin Blue Line (Part 2)

To honor law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty, the President of the United States in 1962 proclaimed May 15 of each year as Peace Officers Memorial Day and designated the calendar week as Police Week. Three filmmakers made the trip to Washington, DC in May 2010 to follow the family and friends of a fallen police officer from Minnesota as his name was read aloud at the Capitol, and to chronicle the story of National Police week. Video for this film is taken from the documentary, Gentle Giant on the Thin Blue Line, A Story of Officer Rick Crittenden. Written and directed by Patsy Kahmann. Cinematography and editing by Karen Bonde and Bill Bonde.
