Another tragedy in the United States: 14-year veteran Corporal Mujahid A. Ramazziddin was murdered in cold blood. The hatred against the police is satanic. St. Paul said to the Romans: “For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.” (Romans 13:4) To have hatred for the police, is to go against the system of God, for God set up a system of authority for humanity. As we read in a report from Fox News:
A Maryland police Medal of Valor winner was shot and killed Wednesday while intervening in a domestic violence dispute, officials said, marking the second police officer killed in the U.S. in just a 12-hour span.
The suspected gunman in the Maryland incident was killed following the incident, which reportedly involved a chase.
Prince George’s Police Department said 14-year veteran Corporal Mujahid A. Ramazziddin was the officer killed in the incident. He was assigned to the Special Operations Division.
NBC Washington reported the suspect shot at police from his car before officers were able to stop him. Officers apprehended the suspect before shooting and killing him. The suspect was not named but police said he had a history of domestic violence incidents.
Prince George’s Police Department tweeted: “With broken hearts, we are announcing that one of our officers was shot and killed today. The brave officer was shot while stepping in to protect a woman threatened in a domestic situation. Please keep his family and our department in your prayers.”
The Baltimore Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives tweeted it was on the scene to assist officers.
Thoughts and prayers from police stations around the U.S. flooded in following the announcement.
The death of the Maryland officer followed an early-morning murder in Alabama.
Justin Billa, a former Officer of the Month with the Mobile Police Department, was gunned down after a murder suspect barricaded himself in his Alabama home at around 12:30 a.m. The suspect, Robert Hollie, also died. It was not immediately clear if he was killed by officers or shot himself.
Earlier this month, the National Fraternal Order of Police‘s President, Chuck Canterbury, condemned a shooting in Ohio that left two officers dead and called on the country to do something about the increasing number of officers killed.
“When will our nation wake up and face that the steady increase of attacks on law enforcement is making all of us less safe,” Canterbury said. “Enough is enough!”
Following the Maryland officer’s death, at least 15 officers across the U.S. have died while on duty — with 12 of those deaths caused by gunfire.
