Snakes are Scary: This is just plain bad...

If you don't know the HPD officer pictured below, it's Kevin Will who was killed by a drunk driver while working another accident.  The guy driving the car who took his life blew a .238 on the breathalyzer, a mere three times the legal limit in the state of Texas.  His last act as a living human was to shout a warning to a bystander, saving the man's life.  He had only been on the force for two years, having left the banking industry and taken a pay cut to become part of HPD.  Officer Will left behind a wife and two kids with another on the way.

This is the guy who drove the Volkswagon Beetle that killed Officer Will.  He's an illegal alien, having been deported twice already.  He had a valid Texas Driver's License issued to him in 2007.

I have no idea how to solve the complex issues involved here.  It'll take someone with clarity of vision and a backbone of steel to make heads or tails out of this situation.  Whatever needs to happen, the status quo cannot remain.  Three of the last four HPD officers killed in the line of duty were killed by illegal immigrants.  I don't have the answers.  I do know that there is a widow in the city who is trying to comfort kids tonight.  And I think that stinks.  No bueno.  Not good.

But that's just me thinking thoughts...
