Ashley Wrote: This is Sgt. Richard Houston. He was John’s sergeant when he was with the Mesquite Police Department. He was shot and killed in the line of duty today. He didn’t deserve this. He was one of the greatest officers we knew. The first one on scene to both of our house fires, brought us drinks and food when we were stuck there all day. A sweet, caring man who loved his job and family. He was a sniper and on the SWAT team. My heart is breaking for his family, his blue brothers and sisters, and my husband who looked up to him. Rest easy, warrior. We have the watch from here. Enough!!!

I love this story, so thought I’d share it.
A year ago I had a cop following me clear down Gross Road and I was thinking, “What did I do?” Next thing I know I got a message from Richard saying, “Look who I found!” I had my ad on the back of my car and he took a picture and sent it to me. I told him I thought I was about to get a ticket which he thought was too funny.
Richard was always a great guy. Heaven got an angel today.

Please join us, as the entire Dallas/Fort Worth area and the nation mourns the loss of a Mesquite Police Department – Texas who leaves behind a wife and 3 kids. Ofc. Richard Houston responded to a disturbance call where he faced evil. Any loss of an officers life is tragic, but around this time of the year it truly is very difficult.
May God bless Ofc Richard Houston, who gave it all.
