Officer Will, 38, was described as a ”latecomer” to police work, having tried other lines of work, but who was apparently happy with his choice. He is survived by his wife, who is six months pregnant, and two children, aged 6 and 10.
Here’s a local news report:
The city of Houston has been strangely stubborn about keeping its illegal-alien-protecting sanctuary policy. Numerous deaths have occurred that could have been prevented by the simple application of law and order against foreign criminals.
My own incomplete coverage of Houston deaths caused by illegal aliens includes 14-year-old Shatavia Anderson, Houston PD Officer Rodney Johnson, Officer Henry Canales, 13-year-old kidnap victim Laura Ayala, teen murder victims Jennifer Erdman and Elizabeth Pena, mother Tina Davila (killed while protecting her baby from a carjacker) and waitresses Roxana Capulin and Maria Moreno Rangel.
Why is coddling foreign lawbreakers more important to city officials than public safety for citizens? Political correctness apparently causes mass insanity as well as preventable deaths. In addition, even if a criminal has not been given a pass by authorities to conform to sanctuary, the existence of the policy must be a magnet for criminal aliens.
Back to the case at hand:
HPD: Suspect charged in officer’s death was an illegal immigrant, intoxicated and carrying drugs, KHOU, May 30, 2011
HOUSTON — The suspect accused of plowing down and killing a Houston police officer in north Houston Sunday was found to be an illegal immigrant, under the influence and carrying drugs, according to authorities.
Investigators said 26-year-old Johoan Rodriguez had a blood alcohol level of.238, which is three times the legal limit, and had cocaine in his pocket when he struck and killed Officer Kevin Will.
Authorities said Will was interviewing the witness of a motorcycle accident on the 610 North Loop near Yale around 2:15 a.m. when the driver of a Volkswagen Beetle plowed through a police barricade.
Police said Will saw the car heading towards them, yelled at the man he was talking to get out of the way and pushed him to jump over a short wall before the officer was hit. Will died at the scene.
Will, 38, is survived by his wife — who is six months pregnant — and two children, 6 and 10.
”Officer Will was a very, very respected officer, young, energetic, his co-workers cared about him and he got along with everybody,” said HPD Chief Charles McClelland.
Will was sworn in with HPD in September 2009. Saturday was his one-year anniversary with the vehicular crimes division, police said.
Rodriguez was transported to the hospital and treated for minor injuries.
He was charged with intoxication manslaughter of a peace officer, evading in a motor vehicle and possession of a controlled substance.
