He died both serving and protecting. He made sure the citizen witness was safe and lost his life doing so. THIS is the measure of a man.By PoliceOne Staff
At 0315 hours on Sunday, May 29, 2011, Houston Police Officer Kevin Will was struck and killed by a drunk driver as he investigated a hit-and-run accident involving a motorcyclist. According to ODMP, Officer Will was interviewing a witness to the motorcycle accident when the drunk driver drove around barriers and emergency vehicles that were blocking the closed freeway.
The driver, who has been identified as 26-year old Johoan Rodriguez and is in this country illegally, was taken into custody at the scene and now faces charges of intoxication manslaughter of a peace officer, felony evading, and possession of a controlled substance
Several reports aid that when he saw the violator’s vehicle approach, Will warned the witness to jump out of the way. The citizen was able to jump to safety moments before Officer Will was struck and killed.
A local ABC TV affiliate said that Will had “been with HPD for about two years, assigned to the vehicular crimes division.” He is survived by his expectant wife, two children, and parents.
I think this is the root of the problem. We're under attack, but it's by an enemy of the state, the likes of which we've never fought before.RIP to another fallen hero. Thoughts and prayers for his family.
To the illegal issue ...until this becomes a "crisis" issue instead of a "voter category" issue nothing will change. Instead of deporting illegals our elected class gives them in state tuition, drivers licenses, and they'd like to give them the right to vote. I say we deport the elected class.
Not in this city, the politicians are too scared they'll get roasted in the next election by LULAC if they actually do what they know to be the right thing.fuck that bastard. I pray that Texas stands up for it's citizens and LEOs and sets a precedent that the rest of our nation can learn from. I agree, let that fucker rot on the border with a note.
They should get roasted in the next election for sitting idly by with their thumbs jammed firmly up their asses while this crime wave continues.Not in this city, the politicians are too scared they'll get roasted in the next election by LULAC if they actually do what they know to be the right thing.
