El Paso County Commissioner Sallie Clark says she didn’t post any photos on Facebook of the funeral service of fallen motorcycle officer Matt Tyner.
Rather, Clark said she posted a photo of the honor guard entering the service.
Here is the full, unedited text of Clark’s statement to The Gazette.
Your blog is factually incorrect.
The photo posted (following the memorial service) included a photo only of the honor guard and the flag entering the service. At no time were any photos posted of the service itself or the family members out of respect for their privacy. This must be clarified and corrected immediately. I can send you a copy, but only with Councilwoman Dougan’s permission.
My original post stated that it was a fitting ceremony for a well respected officer and that we should all keep the family and friends in our prayers. I have always had great admiration for those in public safety and believe that our community does as well in honoring those who have served.
