Officer Ronil Singh, a Legal Immigrant, was Killed by an Illegal Immigrant. Singh's Friends Speak Out.
Over the Christmas holiday, a Newman California police officer, Ronil Singh originally from Fiji, was killed by an illegal immigrant during a traffic stop. Singh leaves behind a wife and a small child, as well as heartbroken officers who've never lost a member until now. To say they're upset is an understatement. Watch for yourself:
"This suspect, unlike Ron -- who immigrated to this country lawfully and legally to pursue his lifelong career of public safety, public service and being a police officer -- this suspect is in our country illegally," Christianson said. "He doesn't belong here. He's a criminal."
Sadly, this case represents everything wrong with our immigration system. Singh was a good man who wanted to be in America, legally, to do good. He went through the proper channels, followed the law, and was a contributing member of American society.
He was killed by a man who didn't follow the laws, doesn't care about laws, and should've never been in the United States at all.
Officials said Singh called in a traffic stop Wednesday morning at Merced Street and Eucalyptus Avenue in Newman. Christianson said it was a DUI investigation.
Moments later, Singh called out “shots fired” over the radio. Multiple officers responded and found that Singh had been shot.
Singh later died at the hospital. The killer is still at large in the Stanislaus County region of California. Here are his photos.
If you've seen the suspect:
The Sheriff's Department is leading the investigation. A Blue Alert has been issued in Stanislaus, Merced, San Joaquin, Tuolumne and Santa Clara counties.
Anyone with information about the suspect or his whereabouts is urged to call the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department at 209-525-7202.
