Thompson was a newlywed, and would receive a separate funeral later on Wednesday.

Obama stood next to five empty chairs for the white police officers killed last week by a black man seeking vengeance for police killings.

Hundreds of law enforcement officers in formal uniforms gathered Wednesday at The Potter's House, a Dallas megachurch headed by celebrity Bishop T.D. Jakes. He was a father of two and husband to a fellow Dallas Police Department detective. Ahrens and four other officers were slain by a sniper during a protest last week in downtown Dallas. The massacre was the worst attack on law enforcement in the United States since at least the September 11, 2001 attacks.

The first DART officer killed in the line of duty, he previously served as a Marine and as a contractor in Iraq and Afghanistan. Thompson's casket lay at the front of the sanctuary, draped in an American flag and accompanied by a photo of the officer. Bouquets filled the scene along with tissue boxes as the procession developed. Unfortunately, and more and more of late, some people are using their free will to choose hate.

On Wednesday, he appeared before microphones calm as he asked people to remember his father and to make sure that something positive, and peaceful, resulted from what he called his father's sacrifice.

Thursday's funeral took place at the Watermark Church in Dallas. Smith was credited with the "Cops' Cop" award.

"I would have done anything in my power to have been there with Brent in those final moments, even if the outcome would have been the same", fellow officer Joseph Kyser said.

Thompson's wife of only two weeks, a DART officer herself, spoke directly to everyone on the force.

He was a USA marine, and served in the most risky parts of Afghanistan and Iraq, where he survived a bombing that left him deaf in his right ear. Thompson was remembered by Pastor Rick Lamb as a fearless public servant.

They are protesting police brutality, including the fatal shooting of Philando Castile by a suburban St. Paul officer during a traffic stop last week. President Obama is meeting today to discuss repairing "the bonds of trust" between law enforcement and communities.
