Fallen Officer's Son Gets Support from Fellow Policemen at Graduation
Get out the tissue box for this one. This past Friday, Mati Abdul-Khaliq graduated from high school in Austin, Texas. Mati's father passed away in September 2016 from injuries caused in an accident during a funeral procession he was guiding. Though Mati's father was not able to attend his graduation, police showed up in uniform and congratulated him after he walked across the stage.
Interim Austin Police Chief Brian Manley tweeted out the video and said "Always family & never forgotten."
