Update on slain police officers in Atlanta

Eric Barker poses with actor Robin Williams while he escorts him around Kandahar, Afghanistan, during a visit with the troops in late 2002.

The DeKalb County policeman's last conversation with his wife, Yolanda, Tuesday evening involved the mundane logistics of parenting. Yolanda worked an early-morning shift as a check processor and watched their four children each evening. He made sure they were dressed and fed the next morning and got them off to school.
Barker called his wife from work around 6:30 p.m. to find out where she'd put their 5-year-old boy's school things and to gather details about the nap of one of the younger boys.
Six hours later, Eric Barker lay mortally wounded in an apartment parking lot.

And of course the campaign now shifts to protecting the murderers rights.
