This is Sergeant Noel Ramirez. He was one of two Deputies gunned down as they ate food at work. He was targeted and murdered only because he wore a badge. Many media sources continue to broadcast the high school graduation photos of criminals.. rather than their mugshot after being booked on their 19th felony arrest.
This photo is one the media should be showing. It shows the reality of the situation. This hero was a family man who loved Christ and served his community honorably. This moment that was captured between him and his family will never happen again. Look how happy they were. This father, husband, hero police officer will no longer be serving and protecting his family, or his community. Because he was murdered.
We can't even eat without being ambushed and killed. Something needs to change. We need to stop treating criminals like victims. Cops are the biggest victims, and they don't get enough credit for what they do. When people realize the good we do, maybe they'll understand. But until then, we will continue to be killed with nothing but crickets echoing in heartbroken families.
