State Capitol Grounds
An emotional ceremony to honor Minnesota’s fallen officers and their loved ones was held in St. Paul Saturday night. Family members of officers killed in the line of duty gathered at the Peace Officers Memorial near the State Capitol for the Blue Light Ceremony. They each carried a blue-tipped white rose, a symbol of loss and sacrifice. They are parents, wives, children and loved ones who come to honor the ones they lost too soon.
Several thousand people will gather on the state capitol grounds in St. Paul Sunday afternoon on the anniversary of the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion.
