(CALIFORNIA GLOBE) In 2019, Sacramento Police Officer Tara O’Sullivan was shot and killed while responding to a domestic violence call. O’Sullivan was ambushed at a Sacramento residential home by Abel Sambrano Ramos, who continued shooting at police for hours. O’Sullivan was left unattended for 45 minutes because police had difficulty getting to her because of multiple fences between them and where she was lying. She later died at an area hospital. Abel Sambrano Ramos was charged with murder, attempted murder and possessing two illegal assault rifles when he was captured. However, Ramos, is now facing a total of 13 felony counts as well as special circumstances making him eligible for the death penalty.
One year later, this Friday, is the anniversary of Tara O’Sullivan’s death. However, a dedication planned on a Sacramento baseball field this week is now cancelled. The inside story is that some say there are no plans to ever dedicate it to O’Sullivan due to the current anti-police climate – and weak-kneed public officials. Others in the community are wondering if the dedication will happen.
But the story gets even more disturbing.
