Weiland Daughter Impresses
Fond du Lac Police Officer Ryan Williams says there were hundreds of brave men and women from across the nation who attended the funeral of Everest Metro Police Detective Jason Weiland this week, but among the bravest was one of the youngest. Williams was critically wounded in the same shootout that claimed the life of Fond du Lac Police Officer Craig Birkholz in March of 2011. He says similar to what happened in Fond du Lac at that time there was a lot of support in the Wausau area for the Weiland family. He says the thing that impressed him most was the speech Weiland’s 10-year-old daughter gave. He says she gave a good speech and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
