Honestly, I can not believe the insensitivity of the people posting here. I have been to every emotional service so far. My brother is on the police force and I can tell you that not only are the Fox family members grieving, but every member of the Plymouth police department is too. I can not understand how people could be concerned about a couple detours for a day, when the people who loved and respected this person who fought for our country during two tours in Iraq and gave his life to protect us again back home are feeling empty an distraught during this last week. This man didn't even live long enough to say goodbye to his loved ones and you people are concerned that you will be late to work?! How about this....how about when you see the procession passing you by, you pull your car over or come out of your comfy offices and PAY YOUR RESPECTS.

"While it may not seem like a big deal to you, getting to and from work is not something I can "just go with it one day out of [my] life." Yes you can....and you will. Hearts are broken...and yours should be as well. If you work in the area that means you may need this police department someday, I'm sure they will be there for you...now, be there for them.

Thank you. I mean what will the detours add 5 - 10 minutes to the commute. The entire STATE is in mourning. This local tragedy has affected me in a way that I thought it never would. I just came on here to get the route from the church to the cemetary and wanted to see all the lovely things people have ben saying and to see this guy rant over and over and over just really upset me.
