Heartbreaking Eulogy by Officer’s Widow, Standing Ovation After Blasting DA


Dominique Luzuriaga, the widow of fallen New York City Police officer Jason Rivera, blasted Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg for his ridiculously soft on crime policies as she spoke at her husband’s funeral. She could barely keep her composure as she spoke before thousands.

Sadly, the couple had an argument that morning and they didn’t get to work it out.

“You know it’s hard being a cop’s wife sometimes. It is hard being patient when plans were canceled or we would go days without seeing each other or when you had to write a report that would take forever because you had to voucher so many things,” Luzuriaga said.

He asked her if she was sure she didn’t want him to take her home after they argued because it might be the last time. “It might be the last ride I give you,” he said.

Rivera and Luzuriaga were high school sweethearts, who married in October, the New York Post reported.

After learning that two police officers had been shot in Harlem, “My heart dropped,” Luzuriaga recounted.

“I immediately texted you and asked you, ‘Are you okay? Please tell me you’re okay. I know that you are mad right now but just text me you are okay. At least tell me you are busy.’ I get no response,” she said.

“We used to share locations on ‘Find My iPhone’ and when I checked yours I see you are at Harlem Hospital. I thought maybe you were sitting on a perp. But still, nothing. I called and then called again and then called one more time. And this time I felt something wasn’t right.”

The turnout was awesome. Police from all over the country and even Jamaica, Europe, came to Officer Rivera’s funeral. He was only 22 years old.

Saw it in real time and fought back tears and rage. So glad you posted this courageous woman’s words. Dominique got the standing ovation she richly deserved. God rest the soul of Detective Rivera.

That would be the worst to part on a sad note of arguing.
Tell those who you can trust that you love them while you still can.
He would still be around if not for Sorrows prosecutors out to spread misery.
The so called elites aren’t all that smart and they move quickly hurling things against the wall to see what sticks in destroying the USA once and for all.
Most people don’t want this straight from the cauldron of Hades anarchotyranny but they rule against the will of the people with not a care about the damage.
