ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) In a show of unity and support, U.S. President Barack Obama, his predecessor George W. Bush, and Vice President Joe Biden along with their wives joined hands at the end of the memorial service in Dallas for the five slain police officers. They stood together as a chorus sang the Battle Hymn of the Republic. President Obama praised Dallas police officers including the five slain at a protest against police violence last week for saving lives during the deadliest day for U.S. law enforcement in almost 15 years. Obama's predecessor, President George W. Bush, also addressed the packed hall, where five chairs were empty of people, holding folded American flags, in memory of the slain officers.
