Early Sunday morning in Houston, Texas, police officer Kevin Will was working a traffic stop on the side of the highway when a drunk driver struck and killed him. Officer Will leaves behind a pregnant wife and two children.
HPD Chief Charles McClelland says that Kevin Will also died a hero. Just seconds before he was struck and killed by Johoan Rodriguez's car, Officer Will pushed another man out of the way. KTRH spoke to the Chief:
"The man heard the impact before he hit the ground," says McClelland. "But he credits Officer Will with giving him the prior warning of yelling 'Get out of the way!' it actually saved his life."
The tragedy of Officer Kevin Will's death is compounded by the fact that his killer, Johoan Rodriguez is an illegal immigrant who had twice been deported, only to find his way back into the country. According to the KTRH report, Will is also the sixth consecutive HPD officer to be shot or killed in the line of duty by an illegal immigrant.
Perhaps DNC head Debbie Wasserman Schultz needs to rethink her belief that "undocumented immigrants" are not criminals. The Florida congresswoman has stated that undocumented immigrants (like like the twice-deported Johaon Rodriguez), are "part of the backbone of our economy and not only a reality, but a necessity..." I'm pretty certain that officer Will's seven-month pregnant widow and his two children would disagree with Ms. Wasserman-Schultz.
Michael Berry from KTRH News Radio in Houston gives details on this killing and the other officers who died at the hands of illegal aliens:
Donations to help officer Will's family are being accepted by the 100 Club (a Houston organization that provides support for the families of police and firefighters killed in the line of duty.)
