JW Exposes Illegal Alien Cop Killerís Extensive Criminal History
Judicial Watch ^ | July 20, 2011

Posted on 07/20/2011 11:06:52 AM PDT by jazusamo

A Judicial Watch investigation has discovered that the drunk illegal immigrant who recently killed a Houston police officer had six arrest warrants, multiple encounters with law enforcement and had been caught driving without a license four times.

He also had been cited by police on eight occasions, was ticketed twice in 2009 and had two convictions for unlawful entry into the U.S., according to public records obtained by JW from the Houston Municipal Court. Incredibly, the illegal alien (Johoan Rodriguez) remained free and in late May struck and killed Houston Police Officer Kevin Will.

It marks the fourth time in the last few years that a Houston officer dies at the hands of a previously deported illegal immigrant protected by the city’s sanctuary policy, which, among other things, forbids police from inquiring about immigration status. In 2009 an illegal alien from Mexico (Roberto Pedroza Carrillo), who had been ticketed by Houston Police at least four times, killed an undercover police officer during a sting operation.

Also that year, an illegal immigrant drug lord shot another Houston officer in the face while attempting to serve a narcotics warrant at a house. That El Salvador native had been arrested five times for possession or delivery of drugs, thrice after an immigration judge granted him voluntary departure. In 2006 Houston Officer Rodney Johnson was murdered during a routine traffic stop by a Mexican illegal alien (Juan Quintero) who had been deported for molesting a child and arrested for driving intoxicated, driving with a suspended license and failing to stop after an automobile accident. Quintero shot Officer Johnson four times in the back of the head with a 9 millimeter handgun hidden in the waistband of his pants.

Judicial Watch represents Johnson’s wife, Houston Police Sergeant Joslyn M. Johnson, in a lawsuit against the City of Houston, the Houston Police Department and its chief challenging the illegal alien sanctuary policies that ultimately led to her husband’s murder. A few months before Johnson’s death JW had launched a probe and requested public records related to Houston’s sanctuary policy and a taxpayer-funded day laborer center.

Despite the murder of four cops in the last few years and countless other crimes attributed to illegal immigrants the city continues offering undocumented aliens sanctuary. Like the other cases before it, Officer Will’s tragic death could have been prevented considering the illegal immigrant who killed him had an extensive criminal history and should have been jailed and deported.

Rodriguez first got caught entering the U.S. through Brownsville Texas on December 29, 2005, though his criminal record dates back to 2001, according to court documents obtained in the course of JW’s probe. He was fined and deported and got caught the next day entering the U.S. in McAllen Texas. That led to his second fine and removal, the records reveal.

Despite two deportations, Rodriguez obtained a Texas driver’s license in 2007 even though he was in the country illegally and had numerous encounters with the law. Beginning in 2001 Rodriguez was cited for offenses including driving without a license or insurance, speeding, operating an unregistered vehicle, running a stop sign and not wearing a seat belt. When he killed Officer Will, Rodriguez had six outstanding bench warrants for failing to appear in court for his various offenses.

Although his criminal history is not violent, it’s extensive and he should have long ago been incarcerated and removed from the country. The same can be said for the other illegal immigrants who have killed cops in Houston in the last four years.

Yep, sanctuary cities are literally killing American citizens. It’s criminal and the turkeys running these cities should be held responsible.

A sad situation. I know some guys that rolled up on the scene after the shooting. The illegal was lucky he was still in the back of the car.

According to the guys I know Officer Johnson did not pat the guy down like he should have. That's no excuse for what happened, of course, but in the field you have to do what you are supposed to do.

The wife is suing everyone she can think of. I can't blame her but she is not going to force HPD to double up the number of officers in each car. That is what she wants. In this case if there had been two officers in the car we may have had two dead heroes. She has also sued a local gun dealer. See that story here.

As far as Judicial Watch? I used to track them a few years back. They are a nonprofit that has collected over $100 million dollars from the public for the various lawsuits they file and their operations. Not much or really any bang for the buck considering that they have not had many success stories for all that money they have raised over the years. In this case I wonder if they are taking a piece of the action if they prevail.

The culprit here is not the City of Houston, The Chief of Police, the Gun Dealer or really anyone else she seems to be suing (I could not find she is suing the bad guy). The criminals here is the United States Federal government and the shooter.

It is a sad thing when any law enforcment officer is killed but I doubt she is going to make much of a difference with all these lawsuits. Until illegals are stopped from coming in to Texas and the ones here illegally thrown out we will continue to see the good guys being killed by illegals.

I agree with most of what you say but the City is also responsible along with the feds and the illegal alien. The city has a policy in place that helps the criminals the City is responsible.

Thanks for your post. I agree on the Johnson case that a search wasn’t made.

The sanctuary city thing has got to be stopped. The feds are partly to blame but only from a standpoint they don’t come down hard on the sanctuary cities. They should simply say that a sanctuary city will not get one dollar of federal funds for anything, that would stop it.

My point was that the main culprit is the federal government. But you are correct and I was wrong. The santuary city BS is way over the top. I ran across this and after reading it and some other things I have to agree with you when it comes to the City of Houston. I was wrong on that.

In the most recent legislative session and special session Rick Perry could have fixed this santuary city garbage. Easily. But he had HEB and Houston homebuilder Bob Perry pull his chain against it. In the case of Bob he has put so much money in Rick Perry's pockets that Rick does what Bob wants. I know Bob and have not chatted with him about all of this yet. Bob is a good man but gets weird when it comes to illegals. Especially Mexicans. You may or may nor recall that Bob was the guy who funded the Swiftys and was the main reason John Kerry got nuked.

Sounds like Bob is putting his profits ahead of the safety of the country and citizens. Builders use a lot of illegals.

He does not hire them directly. His sub-contractors? You betcha.

Bob is a very fine person. Was a school teacher. Self-made man. He loves this country. I'm going to ask him about this the next time I run in to him. I expect that the answer to the question will not be as simple as we might think.

I've never been a big fan of Rick Perry. I think he is a money whore. And not an especially bright fellow. I cringe to think he might be president. The money that Bob has given him is above board and legal. But it is such a huge amount of money that it will raise eyebrows if Rick runs. Something I do not expect him to do until Palin decides. Rick won't jump in before Palin does. He does not have the balls and if Palin is in that means Rick would have to work. It would not be like his re-elections which have all been against losers like Bill White, Kinky and Kay.

Unfortunately, Rick is a good actor and has been acting like a conservative. His is not one but he'd be better than Obama. Just like he was the lesser of two pukes in his re-election campaigns. There are people here pimping Rick. Hopefully those that do not know Rick come to know him through the eyes of Texans that have his number.

If he is not hiring them then I do not think he would support it but who knows.
