Morongo Band donates $20K to families of fallen police officers





The Morongo Band of Mission Indians is donating $20,000 to the families of two police officers who were killed on the job.

The tribe is donating $10,000 each to the families of Riverside police officer Michael Crain and San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputy Jeremiah MacKay. The officers were killed during the rampage of Christopher Dorner this month.

"We are heartbroken for the families of Officer Crain and Detective MacKay. These brave men gave their lives to protect and serve our communities and we should never forget their heroic sacrifice and the devastating loss that their families are suffering,” Chairman Robert Martin said in a press release. “The Crain and MacKay families will remain in our thoughts and prayers.”
