Officer Ryan Bonaminio was savagely beaten and unmercifully shot and killed on November 7, 2010. The only eye witness was a humble, timid homeless man standing next to his home, a small red sedan. He flagged police down and directed them to Officer Bonaminio. He provided the suspect description and the description of the get away car. He later testified in court and was largely responsible for the killer being sentenced to death.

Steve McQueen is homeless and lost his girlfriend to cancer recently. He needs our help and we as citizens owe him. Please contribute to this find so we may provide him with LIFE CHANGING money. At the very minimum to allow him the opportunity to find permanent housing. He will never ask for help and he doesn't believe he deserves any but we need to show him we care.

I was the Watch Commander the night of this awful tragedy and saw how shaken he was but he cooperated completely and I later watched as he humbly testified in court. He says his witnessing the horrible murder changed his life forever. But he still lives in his cold and cramped car. Just buying him a hamburger makes him so very happy and thankful. Please do what you can to help. When we reach the goal we will establish a savings account in his name to provide for his housing and food.

Thank you all you law enforcement family and all you citizens that have our backs.

Steven just was able to renew his Section 8 housing and received his updated WIC food stamps card. He is working for the church and making just enough to cover utilities. The gofundme page is officially exhausted a second of today when I handed him the last of the cash. He still has other costs coming up for commuting to DMV and courts bills, medical bills as well as any extras that come up.

So if you feel it in your heart to help replenish the account for the following year - he has had some challenges this last year staying above water and this account has certainily been a lifesaver.

Thank you to all who have give all who continue to give. God bless and Happy New Year.

Hello all - just wanted to update you on Steve. He is in an apartment and rides the bus to odd jobs and church. He also either rides the bus or bicycle to buy his groceries. He is overwhelmingly thankful for all that have donated. We have been helping him with miscellaneous things like utility payments; and other daily necessities - the fund still has money in it but it has gone a lot faster then we imagined. If you find it in your heart, would you consider another donation or reach out to others who have not yet contributed to his well being. Thank you

❤️❤️ CODE 4 ❤️❤️❤️

Another RA❤️K complete !!! I am proud to say this shows the true power of RA❤️K.

Last week I reached out to you guys asking for assistance finding Steve McQueen a place (The homeless man who testified against a cop killer ). The officers helping him find housing had been hitting one brick wall after another.

I received so much support and a really important PM from Shawna Lynd saying she knows of a vacancy.

We hightailed it down there and got it handled. I promised not to post until he had keys in hand .....(You guys know this has been killing me). Lol. keys are happening today.

We have also already have couches, a kitchen table ,pots and pans , towels , shower curtain and various other things for him to move in his new home and start his new life.

I just want to say thank you to everyone that made this possible. And a special thank you to Shawna for helping us jump through the hoops!!!You guys are amazing !!!!! RA❤️K on friends !!!! Chuck Griffitts

Chuck, I am beyond estatic to hear this. I was one of the earlier donators to this gofund me, something I normally don't support, but felt strongly about this one. A few months ago you were discouraged and was talking about closing this account out as it was stagnant. I am so glad that you didn't and that Steve is now in the process of getting more help. Thank you for setting this up.
