124: Sergeant Brandon Mendoza
Mesa Police Sergeant
Born: 12 February 1982, Mesa, Arizona, United States of America
Died: 12 May 2014, Phoenix, Arizona, United States of America
The man who killed Sergeant Mendoza was four times the legal limit on blood alcohol and had been taking meth and had driven thirty-five miles on four different freeways before hitting Sergeant Mendoza’s car.
The man was also an illegal alien.
Sergeant Mendoza wasn’t even on duty at the time—he was driving home from work.
Sergeant Mendoza worked in the community to make our city safer, bring rental properties up to code, and inspire children to want to be police officers themselves someday, making his death all the more tragic.
