Oakland's fallen officers remembered during annual ceremony
A name is read aloud. A date. Then silence, broken only by the sound of heels clicking against the white, shiny floor of the Oakland Police Department lobby. A wife, a mother, a son or a sister — stoic and composed, or blinking back tears — walks past fellow mourners to add a white rose to a badge-shaped display of red carnations
