Villella said that, having lost her police officer mom, she wants Americans to remember that police officers have families as well.
“They have children and loved ones that need them to come home unharmed. I just want everyone to know those police officers are human too. They have fears, they have love, and they bleed just like the rest of us,” Villella said.
“People like my mom, who was the most amazing person in my life, deserve to not be executed the way that she was because just because of her uniform.”
