I was with Sean at Ft. Benning in 2007. He was my best friend in the Army. We lost contact years ago but I always considered him my friend. God damn I cant believe this. I'm so sorry this happened Sean, I miss you man, I wish we had a chance to speak again.— Investigator one-eye (@InvestigatorMB) January 21, 2019
Tuder was with the police department for less than five years. Battiste said he "was really just getting into that part of his career where he started having a really major impact on not just the people in the community, but the men and women who work here in this department.”

In August 2017, the officer was named "Officer of the Month." He was praised at the time for "his numerous drug arrests, with four cases being sent for federal prosecution, and recovering six firearms."
The police chief asked the public to:
"Keep us in your prayers; keep Officer Tuder's family in your prayers, his wife, his mom and dad, his in-laws. This is going to be a difficult time."
WHEN Donald uses the death of Officer Ronil Singh to justify his wall, remember this:— Evan Shapiro (@eshap) January 8, 2019
Singh’s killer has been here, working on a farm, for 2 yrs, and has been arrested HERE many times.
We MUST fix the system.
BUT exploiting a slain Cop to justify Donald’s wall is disgusting. pic.twitter.com/GVeN0WWNfX
