Just a small glimpse into the overwhelming show of love and support we witnessed by those standing mile after mile along the roads during the entire procession for Sgt. Johnson. Not a dry eye in that procession witnessing this. https://twitter.com/tiffanyalaniz/status/1281351073375023104
The last car has just arrived at Floral Haven Cemetery in the procession for Sgt. Craig Johnson. One hour and 40 minutes of cars between when first car left @victorytulsa to the last car in here at Floral Haven. Absolutely incredible show of support for Johnson & @TulsaPolice
