Reflections for Police Officer Ronald A. Williams, II

Just reading your story, 23yrs after your death. I was born 2yrs after you. I am so sorry to see a good man like you die so young... Another preventable death, so many warning signs of a unstable individual in power, someone you were supposed to be able to trust.
Rest in peace.

Before that dreadful night, I remember feeling at ease when I pulled up to a call and saw Ronald on scene. I was a young medic in the city of New Orleans when I got the call that night and I can tell you with utmost certainty, Ronald received medical attention second to none from myself and the seasoned medics I was with. I would like to share part of my experience with the family. Ronald and his family are forever in my prayers. He is greatly missed.

I recently saw this tragic story on ID, and it broke my heart. I would like to hear from someone with his family or the NOPD about how whether there are any memorial funds, scholarship funds for his children, or anything of that nature please. Please contact me via my email.
God Bless,
Sincerely,

I had known Ronnie and was with him at dinner the night before he was murdered with a Federal Agent who was very good friends with Williams. It has affected my life. He was just a kid. His son was a newborn baby.

My prayers be with your family, along with the Vu family. Many thanks for your service in our police force.
No words of mine can ever describe how horrible this tragedy was. I hope that both families can find a way to heal and cope with these terrible losses.

I saw your story today on the ID channel. I was so touched & saddened over the tragic deaths. I dont understand what makes people do the things they do but you were taken too early. Your sons are grown now I wish them the Best & know they are stand up men like you were Officer Williams. God Bless

I was in the academy with Ronnie. We would all walk to the Buds Broiler for lunch together. We had a great class. Ronnie was a great person and cop. I wish we could fix this.

Ronnie,

You were a good man, husband, father, and cop, taken far too early, on this day 20 years ago. I did not know you but feel as though I did. Rest in peace.

I did not know Officer Williams, but like others saw his story on ID. I just want his family to know that his sacrifice will not be forgotten. I am thankful for his service and for the service of all those who risk their lives every day to protect us, the public.

I didn't know officer Ronnie Williams myself. I remember this story like it happened yesterday, my son was born in 1995 and I couldn't stop thinking of his wife Mary and his boys. I don't understand how evil someone could be to take these lives of 3 beautiful people. I hope Antoinette Frank and Roger L death warrants are upheld they should have been gone ling ago. Prayers to both families..

I just saw the program on tv. I'm just so very very sorry. I can't believe evil like this lives and breaths. They both are cowards. I will say prayers for your family that the pain leaves and wonderful memories can be held close.

I worked with Ronnie over a summer at Lake Forest Exxon. He use to come in there a lot during high school to fill up his car before school. I remember when he left to enter the academy I thought he was joking because he was too nice for such a rough job. He came by to show me his uniform and I couldn't believe it , he really became an officer. Came by the gas station many of times just to say hi to his ole workers. We were all proud of him. The day we learned of his death was truely one of the saddest days of our lives. He was a great worker an awesome person and a friend to everyone he met. Still saddens my heart till this day....

I was a classmate of Ronnies in the 7th and 8th grade at Lake Castle in New Orleans. 1995 was a particularly tragic year as I also lost a high school classmate to murder. It seemed our innocence was lost, we were no longer protected in our safe cocoon. Ronnie`s death touched me, he was so young. I always liked him in school, he was kind to me, something others found hard to do to the new girl in the class. I think of his wife and kids, now grown, how sad to grow up alone. I am glad I found this site to express my thoughts. I never thought I would know how it feels to lose classmates. I hope his family is doing well. GIna Jaquillard Speerly, Madisonville, LA

Just watched an episode of your brutal murder on ID Discovery. You were a true hero Officer Williams. Rest in peace. I hope your so called partner, got her punishment along with the low life who she was supposed to be rehabilitating.

I was in the middle of my law enforcement career when I heard this tragic story. As a police officer, now retired, I fully understand how much we depend on our partner. When a cop goes dirty people get hurt. I remember the outrage I felt on that sad day in 1995. I get angry even now as I write this. It's hard enough to worry about the bad guys on the other side of the badge let alone the ones wearing a badge. Even now I think how senseless it all was. I have to stop now. I'm to sad to go on. Rest In Peace Officer Ronald Williams! May Justice be carried out soon on those who took you from us. My prayers are with your family, your children wherever they may be.
