A Texas sheriff's deputy who has been dubbed a hero for helping those affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Maria, has died after a driver shot him in the back of the head during a traffic stop in a cul-de-sac near Houston on Friday afternoon.

Harris County Sheriff's Deputy Sandeep Dhaliwal, 42, was the first Sikh man to join the force 10 years ago and Sheriff Ed Gonzalez called him 'a trailblazer' who was active in the community as a philanthropist.

Robert Solis, 47, is suspected of shooting the married father-of-three who wore the traditional turban and beard of the Sikh religion after former sheriff, Adrian Garcia, implemented a religious accommodation policy that allowed him to do so.

Solis, of Mission Bend in Houston, was charged with capital murder the same night and was wanted on a warrant for violating parole in 2017 when he was accused of possessing a prohibited weapon and threatening his girlfriend.

In 2002 he was sentenced to 29 years in prison for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon but was released after 12 years in 2014 after which he was also accused of drunk driver but was not returned to prison.

If only it wasn't such a gun culture, people might find different ways of expressing differences.

But with guns, it's always: Opp...I hate 'im. Lemme get my gun!

When you kill someone, his agency--the object of your hatred--is gone. Whose gonna feed your enmity emotion, then?

Well, there's always your wife, but that's a different story.

Crying or Very sad

Let's hope they have a good look into that psycho' killer's background...

With his history, he may well have other victims left behind over the years --  maybe some as-yet unsolved murders and missing people in his region..

Possibly. But he was in violation of parole. I think he just decided that he wasn't going back.
