Some readers blame media, officials for Brame tragedy: No big funeral, please

I felt shock and sadness at the horrific events that occurred in Gig Harbor Saturday involving Tacoma Police Chief David Brame, his wife Crystal and their innocent children.

Not only did he commit this cowardly, murderous act in front of his children, he violated everything a chief of police is supposed to represent.

I sincerely hope that the City of Tacoma is not planning the usual huge funeral and procession with thousands of officers in attendance to "honor" the cowardice of a man who was intent on committing first-degree, premeditated murder, regardless of the position he held or the amount of respect he commanded.
