'The epitome of a guardian': Slain Minneapolis officer remembered for courage, empathy

A photo montage preceding Jamal Mitchell's memorial service flashed through the life of the 36-year-old Minneapolis police officer, killed in the line of duty.

It depicted him doing the things a lot of us do, surrounded by family and friends. Watching a ball game. Playing a board game. Eating a Sweet Martha's cookie. Holding a baby, asleep on his chest.

Mitchell was on vacation. Celebrating a birthday. He was dressed as Batman and Mr. Incredible. And in his police uniform, reading to kids.
