(STORYFUL) - In the wake of the fatal shootings of three Baton Rouge police officers on Sunday, July 17, the emotional toll for one Texas highway patrol trooper proved too burdensome, as he broke down in tears outside a memorial for recently slain Dallas police officers.
Three other Baton Rouge police officers were hospitalized in Sunday’s attack.
Allison Harris, a reporter with FOX 4, tweeted that the trooper said, “It’s time to come together. It’s time.”
