Thousands of officers paid their respects at the funeral for a fallen cop gunned down just two weeks in the job during a routine traffic stop.
A young Natalie Corona would run around the house in police gear and loved watching the show 'Cops.' She always knew she wanted to be a police officer, her sister told the congregation in California on Friday.
