Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, California
DOD: Monday, April 29, 2002

Deputy David March was shot and killed after stopping a vehicle in Irwindale, California, at approximately 10:40 am.

The suspect had stated to friends that he wanted to kill a police officer during a traffic stop. The suspect intentionally got stopped and waited for Deputy March to get in front of his patrol car so he could open fire, as Deputy March would have no place to take cover. Deputy March was shot several times in the head and chest.

The suspect, who was identified shortly after the shooting, fled to Mexico where he remained for 4 years. On February 23, 2006, the suspect was arrested in Mexico by US Marshals and Mexican federal agents following a joint investigation. He was extradited back to California and on March 2nd, 2007, he plead guilty to second-degree murder and was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Deputy March had served with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department for 7 years. He is survived by his wife and stepdaughter.

Hey there Dave, well I’m living in the Dallas area and tomorrow I will be attending the services of Fallen Dallas Officer Brian Jackson. He was so young just like you and had only been married a short time. Once again it was an illegal alien, but fortunately he was captured and will be charged with Capital Murder. I pray for justice for you and your family. I wear my bracelet and inform people about you and your senseless murder all the time. Hopefully someday all Terri’s persistence will prevail….God Bless you and miss you! p.s. I’m going to go watch USC kick some UCLA butt and think of you

Dear David, I am a fellow Deputy with LASD. I attended your funeral back in 2002. I just recently attended your “David March Rally” at the College of the Canyons in Santa Clarita last weekend, May 8 -04. It was the least I could do. I talked briefly with your dad and your wife Teri there. I told them my opinion about some of the reasons “WHY” our elected officials in Washington D.C. are not putting pressure on the Mexican government to help bring the suspect to justice. It seems the politicans are more concerned with global trade than getting justice for police officers and American citizens murdered by illegal aliens. It is apparent that your surviving family and friends are not giving up the fight, in your loving memory, to help make American Police Officers and citizens aware of all the other police officers and ordinary citizens gunned down by illegal aliens all over the United States. The “shooters” know all they have to do is simply “run for the border”. Your death will not be in vain. Your family and friends and fellow police officers will keep the pressure on the politicans who talk the talk but do not walk the walk. God Bless your soul forever. May God Bless your wonderful family and may He ease their pain now and give them comfort. We all will never forget you Deputy David March, “SIR”, I Salute You ! signed, Larry Breazeale, Deputy Sheriff, L.A.County Sheriff’s Department, and Msgt.(ret.) USAFR ,Security Police

Thinking of you and all of your loved ones today and every day. Continue to keep watch over your loved ones and help them with their cause that they have been involved with. It’s a shame that our Country just doesn’t seem to care. My son was also killed by an illegal alien and the city where he was employed had the Don’t ask Don’t tell philosophy. Sometimes it feels like they just don’t care. They are not the ones left behind. You will never be forgotten.
