sgt. daniel sakai and sgt. ervin romans

By now, you've probably heard about the four Oakland police officers who were shot to death during a shootout on March 21. I won't get into the politics of what's going on with law enforcement and the people in Oakland -- the situation is bad. But I will note that two of the officers who were shot and killed were Asian American: Fallen Oakland Police Officers Were Asian American.

Sgt. Daniel Takashi Sakai would've been 36 next week: Sgt. Dan Sakai 'loved being a police officer'. Sgt. Ervin Romans, decorated former Marine drill sergeant, was 43: Sgt. Ervin Romans dreamed of joining the Oakland Police Department.
