The Democrats won’t point out his race or his heroic acts.

Eric’s sister tweeted this out after her brother’s death.
Officer Eric Talley is my big brother. He died today in the Boulder shooting. My heart is broken. I cannot explain how beautiful he was and what a devastating loss this is to so many. Fly high my sweet brother. You always wanted to be a pilot (damn color blindness). Soar. pic.twitter.com/tgt2DxPsqz

The media does not prop up or promote enough heroes today.
Officer Eric Talley was a courageous man and a hero.
Police Chief Maris Herold remembered fallen officer Talley.
CBS News reported on Officer Talley.
Police officer Eric Talley was the first to respond when a gunman opened fire at a Boulder, Colorado, supermarket on Monday afternoon. The 51-year-old father of seven was one of 10 people killed in the mass shooting.
Talley rushed to the scene of a King Soopers supermarket around 2:30 p.m. and was fatally shot, Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold said during a news conference. The 51-year-old had been with the department since 2010, serving in numerous roles.
Herold called his quick response at the scene “heroic.”
