After hearing of the tragic loss of Officer Katie Thyne, killed in the line of duty just blocks from their church, members from the Calvary church in Newport News, Va., went into action. Thyne had stopped a vehicle for a drug investigation. When she asked the driver to get out of the vehicle, the driver accelerated, dragging Thyne approximately one block and pinning her between a tree and the car doors. “When I heard about the incident, I just knew we had to do something,” says T. DuWayne Privette, the pastor of Calvary.
