We wanted to let people know that there is a public vigil tonight at Lemanski Park, 400 Oxford Street North Auburn, tonight at 7:30 PM for slain police officer Ron Tarentino. Even if you did not know him it’s a great way to show your support for his family and police in general. There are also a few GoFundMe’s we have seen circulating, and although they all seem to check out we are only going to share this fundraiser promoted by the Auburn Police Department:
Also, this might be the most powerful and emotional picture ever taken. Whoever took it should win a Pulitzer Prize:
It speaks a million words. An Auburn Police Officer hugging crying his son, as many other families of LE have done with their loved ones who put on a uniform and a badge every day. This picture humanizes the police by reminding us that they have families to go home to when the job is done every day. We see stories of police officers getting shot and killed, but it’s always hundreds of miles away. Now it’s in Auburn.
Comedian Artie Lange has offered to do a free show, and it appears as if his offer has been accepted:
RIP Officer Tarantino who was killed today in Massachusetts! To his family: If money is an issue I will do a free show anytime to help! Lmk

Also wanna give a shoutout to every business in the community that has done their part to support this community. Mike’s Donuts in Leicester has had a sandwich named after him (which I wouldn’t recommend if you’re dieting) for a while, and they are collecting money there as well.
Jasmine’s in Auburn shut down at 10 PM on Monday and law enforcement from all over gathered until 2 AM. The owner paid the full tab. It’s stories like this that restore your faith in humanity.
Speaking of humanity, we thank the people who have messaged us with positive stories about Officer Tarentino, and we encourage others to do so. We would like to write something to memorialize his life and celebrate the good things he did in order to try to balance out all of the terrible stories that seem to come out by the day. The best way to commemorate someone’s death is to celebrate their life. Feel free to message us on Facebook or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to share one particular story about an experience or interaction you had with Ron Tarentino. Don’t be bashful, we won’t use your name. But I know if something like this happened to someone I love, I would want to read about all of the people whose lives were touched by this man.
