Family members listen during a funeral for #LasVegas police officer Charleston Hartfield on Friday, in Henderson, Nevada.

.
Hartfield, who was also a U.S. Army Service member, had provided instructions ahead of time to be read at his memorial, which read in part: "If you're reading this, then I've been called home."
.
"The truth only," it said. "None of that stuff about how great I was."

A man wearing a shirt with swastikas is punched near the site of a speech by white nationalist Richard Spencer at the University of Florida campus on Thursday in #Gainesville. Hundreds protested the speech, but the widespread clashes some feared didn't happen.
.
The point, some protesters said, was to turn out in numbers that would make the number of #RichardSpencer supporters look tiny. "We don't want your Nazi hate," the protesters chanted, pounding drums and carrying signs championing diversity.

In heart-felt remarks about his own loss, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, a former general whose Marine son was killed in Afghanistan, said Thursday he was "stunned" by a Florida lawmaker's criticism of President Donald Trump's condolence call to a fallen soldier's wife.
.
Kelly strongly defended Trump, who touched off the controversy on Monday by falsely claiming President Barack Obama had not called the families of fallen soldiers.
.
Kelly called Trump "brave" for attempting to make the difficult condolence calls to families who have lost a loved one. There is "no perfect way to make that phone call," Kelly said, disclosing that when he became chief of staff he had advised Trump not to make condolence calls to the grieving families "because itโ€™s not the phone call that parents, family members are looking forward to."
