The sign in this photo reads, "I'm looking for Gonzalo Harrell-Gonzalez, illegal alien driver who killed my son. Have you seen him?" The face hidden behind the sign is that of Kathy Inman, who lost her son Dustin when an illegal alien crashed into the Inman's car. Kathy, husband Billy and son Dustin were stopped at a traffic light when a car driven by Harrell-Gonzalez rear-ended their car at 62 miles per hour. Both adults were severely injured and couldn't attend their son's funeral. Kathy was permanently disabled and was put into a wheelchair. The perpetrator, Gonzalo Harrell-Gonzalez, escaped from a hospital and was never even arrested. A Gilmer County (Georgia) grand jury indicted Gonzalez on charges of vehicular homicide and serious injury by a vehicle. He remains at large. The occasion which brought Kathy Inman out into the streets was the so-called "Immigrant Worker Freedom Ride," a caravan of buses demanding "rights" for illegal aliens. That's the crowd in the photo. Of course, real immigrants, the legal sort, have workplace protections just like the rest of us. Furthermore, illegal foreigners wrapping themselves in the civil rights movement is insulting to the real Freedom Riders of the 1960s, who worked for long-denied political rights for black Americans.
Who Was Dustin Inman?
Dustin Inman is one of the un-counted thousands of Americans who have needlessly lost their lives because government in America refuses to secure American borders or enforce American immigration and employment laws.
Dustin Inman was a sixteen-year-old American boy killed by an illegal alien in a senseless traffic collision on Father's Day weekend five years ago.
He was on his way to a weekend of fishing in the North Georgia mountains with his parents.
Despite being in the United States illegally, the driver of the car that killed Dustin, Gonzalo Harrell-Gonzalez, was able to obtain a valid North Carolina driver's license using his Mexican birth certificate and a Mexican Matricula Consular ID card.
On June 16, 2000, a speeding vehicle driven by Harrell-Gonzalez hurtled into the rear of the Inman family's car while it was stopped at a red light in Ellijay, Georgia - killing Dustin and knocking unconscious Kathy and Billy Inman - Dustin's parents.
When she regained consciousness after five weeks in a coma, Kathy learned of the death of her son and that because of spinal injuries received in the wreck that killed him, she would spend the rest of her life in a wheelchair.
Because of their injuries in the wreck, Kathy and Billy were not able to attend their only son's funeral.
Billy Inman will tell you that he blames the government sworn to protect him and his family for his son’s death more than he blames the illegal alien who killed him.
The Inman's have only a few school photos, family snapshots and a video made at Dustin's funeral by which to remember their son.
America's un-secured borders and illegal immigration have changed their lives forever. It can happen to any one of us.
Billy Inman will tell you that Dustin was a "good kid" and that he misses his "hunting buddy" everyday. "I loved Dustin," says Billy often. He talks about Dustin having been born with a cleft palate, and getting him the surgery to get his son "all fixed up".
He says that he will not rest until he brings his son’s killer to justice.
He will also tell you that he "paid no attention to politics" and had never voted before he lost his son to America’s intentionally un-secured borders.
"The system really let me down," says Billy Inman.
In his search for a better life, he now votes in every election.
Charged and indicted in the death of Dustin Inman, Gonzalo Harrell-Gonzalez is a fugitive after escaping from local police when taken to a local hospital after the crash. His whereabouts are unknown.
Like all crime, illegal immigration has consequences.
With the Inman family’s blessing, The Dustin Inman Society has been created to help educate the public and elected officials on those consequences and the often-ignored reality of the true cost of our virtually open borders and "cheap labor".
We often wonder what our grandfathers would say about the state of our nation.
It only took one illegal alien to kill Dustin Inman. We ask: how will we know when we have enough illegal aliens in our republic?
Elsewhere on our Website, you will find a partial list of other Americans killed by illegal aliens. We desperately want to be able to stop adding names to that dreadful list. We hope that our efforts will help force the President and our federal government to secure our borders and our Governor and state government to do all it can to discourage the millions of illegal aliens in our nation from coming into or remaining in our state.
Note to all elected officials: we are part of a growing majority of voters that regard doing nothing to stop illegal immigration into the U.S. - or Georgia - as the same as encouraging illegal immigration. Illegal immigration is not a "federal problem"... it is a national problem, and Georgia has one of the largest and fastest growing populations of illegal aliens - and those who encourage and profit from them - in the nation. Illegal immigration is a crime and it is national suicide.
