With the runoff election gearing up, Houston Mayoral candidate Gene Locke spent part of  Thursday talking with members of the Houston Police Officers Union.

HPOU endorsed Locke for Mayor, and several women who lost their officer/husbands in the line of   duty are also lending their support to his campaign.

On Thursday, Locke listened to Stephanie Abernethy, the widow of  slain officer Timothy Abernethy.

Locke also spoke with Joslyn Johnson, the widow of  slain officer Rodney Johnson:  http://www.odmp.org/officer/18510-officer-rodney-joseph-johnson

They talked about the events leading up to their husbands’ deaths, and whether HPD  could do anything  in the future to prevent officers from being killed in the line of duty, especially when they are working without backup.

2 On The Beat will try to get  more information about this meeting and post it later.
