Rios is the fourth Houston Police officer murdered since last December.
The Fraternal Order Of Police National Vice President and local Houston chapter Joe Gamaldi had this to say:
Sgt Rios death was avoidable,like many others who have lost their lives in our community because of sweetheart deals from DA and bail reform.
The elected officials who did this fail to take responsibility or even admit theres a problem. It’s disgusting and we are paying dearly. https://t.co/7XTeSPGbCX
