INDIANAPOLIS — Several hundred police officers from around the state and nation have filed past the casket of a slain Indianapolis police officer as part of a day of funeral services Thursday, Sept. 26.

Ralph Tobias says he traveled to Indianapolis from Officer Rod Bradway’s northern Indiana hometown of Nappanee with a busload of other residents to pay their respects. Tobias says Bradway died as a hero when he was shot after kicking in an apartment door in response to screams from a woman held at gunpoint by an ex-boyfriend.

A police honor guard saluted Bradway’s widow and teenage son and daughter as they were escorted into the Bankers Life Fieldhouse before Thursday’s funeral. The service will be followed by a 20-mile procession through much of the city to Crown Hill Cemetery.

Civil rights attorneys said they hope to exonerate the former chairman of a bribery conviction by obtaining unreleased emails from a federal judge reprimanded for sending racist correspondence. Former Montana U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull sentenced Birdinground (“bird-in-ground”) to three years in prison in 2003. The 79-year-old Crow leader had pleaded guilty to taking kickbacks from a car dealership. When Birdinground sought to retract his plea and go to trial, Cebull rejected the request, a decision upheld on appeal. Cebull resigned last year after an investigation into a racist email he sent involving President Barack Obama. (AP Photo/Billings Gazette, Larry Mayer)
