    Slain officer missed suspect's gun in search

    The Houston police officer who was gunned down by a suspect Thursday after a routine traffic stop apparently missed the man's weapon in a pat-down search, Capt. Dale Brown told reporters today.
    Juan Leonardo Quintero, a 32-year-old illegal immigrant, has been charged with capital murder in the shooting death of Houston Police Officer Rodney Johnson.

    Brown said Quintero apparently was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of his arrest. Brown said that Quintero had a criminal history from 1995 to 1999, convicted for DWI, failure to stop and give information and indecency with a child. His driver's license was suspended and he was deported to Mexico by immigration officials in 1999, Brown said.

    This is outrageous. It should be on the national news and should lead to a crackdown on illegals in this country.

    BUILD A WALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:mad:

    Earlier this year, a Denver officer was also killed by an illegal immigrant from Mexico, who promptly fled back there following the shooting. In order to extradite him, the Denver D.A. had to agree not to seek the death penalty. His trial is wrapping up this week.

    In this sad case of the HPD officer being killed, apparently this all happened with the suspect's two young daughters present.

    So very sad.

    Regardless of personal political posts . . .

    I am praying the family will find peace and closure . . . I pray that the Father will comfort them as much as is possible in a time like this. HPD Officer Rodney Johnson was an asset to his city, his state, his country, and his family. He will be missed by many. And we will not be able to sleep as well knowing that one of Houston's finest no longer keeps us safe at night.

    When evil men kill good men, we as Americans are all injured.

    God blessed everyone that knew Rodney.

    Here are some details of the murder and about the commendations/awards received by Officer Johnson in the line of duty.

    http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/front/4205390.html

    He was shot by the murderer 4 times in the head and still managed to push the emergency distress button, to send for back-up, before he collapsed.

    Many lives have been affected by this officer over the years. Thank God that he was able to touch so many lives before his life was taken away.

    As for the murderer: Hang em High!

    I say if we don't seek the death penalty we should bill Mexico the cost of life imprisonment. If they choose not to pay in say seven years then we can execute him as a budget cut, cost saving measure.

    Some suspects are very agile and nimble and are able to pass their handcuffed arms from the back to the front by sliding the arms under their behinds, legs and on to the front.

    Two police officers partnering in one mobile car won't be much of a problem for an armed suspect sitting behind. Remember the case of the two officers in Florida whose suspect later killed himself after a long drawn out high speed chase with police ? A back up car behind them would be more of a deterrent.


    I think that there ought to be a small but sturdy chain or leather belt with a ring that officers should use on suspects where handcuffs are then attached from behind to the ring making it impossible for agile and nimble suspects to bring their arms to the front.

    In the Philippines, cruel as it may sound, some police officers use a rope to tie the prisoner's hands behind him, then pass a loop over and around his neck, which tightens if he moves around too much. Very few cops get shot from behind.

    I hope the departed officer is a brother and fellow citizen of heaven.

    His wife is also a police officer.

    Officer's death won't change immigrant policy, Houston police chief says

    HOUSTON — Houston's police chief is standing behind his policy of not enforcing immigration laws after an illegal immigrant was charged with killing a police officer during a traffic stop.


    Hurtt's policy prohibits officers from questioning suspects about their residency.
