Connections: Reflecting on Wednesday Night's Police Officer Shooting

Last night, the Rochester Police Department lost Officer Daryl Pierson in the line of duty. It was the first time in 55 years that an RPD officer was shot and killed on duty. We reflect on the career of Officer Pierson, and talk about the feelings officers and their families are experiencing today and going forward. Joining us on this special edition of "Connections" are two former RPD chiefs - James Sheppard and Lt. Governor Bob Duffy.
