Houston Officer Killed by Drunk Driver Remembered as Hero

June 02, 2011  | 

Kevin Scott Will quit his job in the banking industry and took a pay cut to become a Houston police officer in March 2009. The 37-year-old found his calling in police work, recently married, and was expecting a baby boy in the coming months.

On Sunday his life was cut short by a suspected drunken driver on the North Loop, but not before one final act of heroism.

Will’s last words were a shouted warning that saved the life of a civilian witness Will was interviewing as Johoan Rodriguez’s vehicle crashed through a police barrier and barreled toward them. Rodriguez has been charged in connection with Will’s death.

Another drunk illegal alien driver.

Another American killed by an illegal alien.

I'd love to have the US adopt Mexico's law and treatment of illegal aliens. Take a look at how Mexico treats Central American illegals entering their country...wow! You do not want to be caught by the Federales.

"To serve and Protect", this was Will's last act as a Houston Police Officer. He took his oath deathly serious. After 30 yrs. in this business it is apparent alot of illegals are killing us. By one method or another.
