Thousands of police officers, state troopers, sheriff's deputies and others from law enforcement agencies big and small across the U.S. gathered at the New York City funeral of a slain officer killed with his partner in a brazen daytime ambush a week ago.During the eulogy, a few hundred officers outside the church turned away from giant screens showing de Blasio, who has been harshly criticized by New York police union officials as a contributor to a climate of mistrust that preceded the killings of Ramos and his partner, Wenjian Liu.Ramos and Liu were the first officers to die in the line of duty in New York since 2011 .Officer Dustin Lindaman of the Waterloo Police Department flew from Iowa to attend Ramos' funeral.
