Jan. 30, 2012 - Atlanta - The Honor Guard carries the casket out to a waiting caisson after the service. The standing room only funeral for Senior Police Officer Gail Thomas was held at Elizabeth Baptist Church in Atlanta. A police procession led by motorcycle patrol entered the church grounds beneath a giant American flag suspended by fire ladder trucks, and police units from throughout the area processed into the church. Thomas was killed last week by a drunk driver while on duty. Bob Andres bandres@ajc.com
