OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- During an emotional speech at fallen Hayward Police Sgt. Scott Lunger's memorial, his older brother Mike said, "Well, little brother, the tables have turned. It is your big brother who now looks up to you."
He went on to say, "Over the last few days, I've heard some amazing stories from your brothers and sister in law enforcement. They looked up to you. Honest, compassionate, hardworking, giving of yourself, loving, fearless, eager to serve others. Well, little brother, the tables have turned. It is your big brother who now looks up to you. This was the toughest last two weeks that my family has ever gone through, but the support that we have from our dear friends and our new brothers and sisters is amazing. They've taken us in, they've been there for us, and the stories we never got to hear and they shared with us, what an honor and privilege it was to hear how Scott was."
The memorial for the 15-year veteran of the force was held at Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif. on Thursday, July 30, 2015. Law enforcement officers from across the country attended in honor of the fallen sergeant, who was shot and killed while conducting a traffic stop on July 22, 2015.
