UPDATE 2/3/22: Precinct 5 Corporal Charles Galloway was laid to rest on Tuesday, 2/1/22. Rest in Peace. On a very troubling note, it has been reported that County Judge Lina Hidalgo disrespected the officer's funeral ceremony by grandstanding there for political gain (refusing to go to her assigned seat, arguing with a sergeant who was helping to coordinate the event, interjecting herself into the proceedings for media exposure, etc.). Based on the video (see link below), it appears those allegations may have merit:
