You can watch the video below. The reporter says the statement at the end of the video.
Great job WFLA out of Tampa. For your reporter to say what a waste of his day for having to cover the procession of a fallen hero. Listen to the end of the video. I was able to save the video before they took it down. Lets make this POS famous
