This crap needs to stop. Firefighters and Police are obviously important jobs and some people are undoubtedly sad when one of them dies. There are no other occupations that bring multiple city streets to a halt because of a funeral. There is absolutely no reason the funerals can't be restricted to family and close friends like normal people.
