From the Bible to ‘Superman’: See the Dallas Police Chief’s Powerful Eulogy to Five Fallen Officers

Posted on

Speaking to the crowd gathered for Monday night’s candlelight vigil honoring the five Dallas police officers killed last week, Police Chief David Brown invoked the Bible and even a classic television show.

Brown began his eulogy quoting the famous opening words from “The Adventures of Superman” series: ”Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. Look, it’s a train, it’s a plane…it’s Superman,” he said, reminiscing about his childhood, imagining the similarities between cops and superheroes.

Turning toward the spiritual, Brown reminded listeners of the message found in 1 Corinthians 15:55, which exclaims, “Oh death, where is your sting? Oh grave, where is your victory?”

The beloved police chief went on to tell the families of the fallen officers that “we love you with everything we have, we are now your surrogate … when you need us, you call.”

“We’ll be loving you,” he continued, “til you are me and I am you.”

We suggest you grab a tissue before watching Brown’s touching tribute:
