This Thursday marks the 19th anniversary of the murder of Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriff Dave March. Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) – The March Family of Santa Clarita were dear friends of mine and I pause each year to remember Deputy March. Dave was murdered by a three-times deported, twice convicted illegal alien drug dealer on a dreadful Spring morning, after he pulled over a vehicle in the San Gabriel Valley, in Irwindale, California. The suspect driver vowed to kill a cop that day, shot Dave, the bullet hitting him at the edge of his protective vest, knocking him to the ground. He then shot Deputy March in the head. This assassin who I vowed never to utter his name, fled to Mexico where he hid out in the open for 4 1/2 years while the Mexican government and the Los Angeles County District Attorney squabbled over the Death Penalty. U.S. Marshalls eventually apprehended the “suspect” who pled guilty to Second Degree murder. He sits in a CDCR facility under a Life without possibility of parole sentence. May he NEVER see, smell, taste or experience freedom for the rest of his natural life.
