Remembering NYPD Detectives Liu & Ramos on 5th Anniversary
Friday, Dec. 20 will mark the 5th anniversary of fallen NYPD Detectives Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, the two heroes who’s deaths sparked the creation of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation‘s Fallen First Responder Home Program.
Five years ago, on Dec. 20, 2014, NYPD Detectives Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos were tragically killed in the line of duty. In the days that followed, the Tunnel to Towers Foundation raised the money to pay off the mortgages on their family homes – a staggering $1 million in just 10 days. Their families were released from the financial burden, providing them with the stability and security they need to grieve in peace.
This tragedy, led to the creation of the Foundation’s Fallen First Responder Home Program. Since then, the Foundation has gone on to pay off the mortgages on the homes of nearly 50 fallen first responders families. One of the Foundation’s core principles is the importance of family, and ensuring the families of these heroes are able to stay in their homes is of utmost importance.
Since the tragedy, Detective Liu’s widow, Pei Xia Chen, gave birth to their baby, Angelina, and has remained a very close friend to the Foundation. Maritza Ramos, widow of Detective Ramos, went on to start the Detective Rafael Ramos Foundation to ensure his legacy lives on and that his work in the community continues.
Tunnel to Towers’ Fallen First Responder Home Program will continue to assist the families left behind when a first responder is killed in the line of duty. For a pledge of just $11 per month, you can help provide these families with the assistance they so desperately need.
Maritza Ramos (portrayed by Diane Guerrero) is best friends with Marisol “Flaca” Gonzales; their friendship compels Gloria Mendoza to call them “Lucy and Ethel without the charm.” She has a one-year-old daughter. She began working in the kitchen in season two under Gloria. She is best known for her fiery attitude.
Before she was arrested, she worked in a upscale night club where she scammed customers out of their money. She would fill empty vodka bottles and, as she was serving them to the customers, she’d accidentally trip and break the bottles all over them. She’d begin crying and pleading with the group not to tell her boss, mentioning her small baby she had to support, in order to manipulate the customers into chipping in for the bottle so she could pocket the cash. However, one customer catches onto her scam and instead invites her to a gig where the take was more lucrative in one day than what she typically made a year ($50,000).
Now a con-woman sales girl at the Miami Ferrari Maserati Dealer, she posed as a sales girl to the customer and as the customer’s wife to the men handing over the keys. However, she didn’t account for the salesman about to hop in the back seat and begin asking questions about their “marriage.” When the questions became too much for her, she blasted the music and then pretended to have to get sick, so when everyone left the car to check up on her, she ran back into it and drove away with the car. It’s likely that this is the job that landed her in jail.
In season one, she ran for the Women’s Advisory Council (WAC) with the slogan “If you want more pizza, vote for Maritza.” Seeing as her definition of love is having a pizza, it is safe to say that it’s her favorite food.
Maritza has never been a main character; however, we gain a greater glimpse into her values at the Mother’s Day celebration. When her daughter is brought to visit, she worries about her child being the prettiest. From her conversations with her coworkers in the kitchen, we learn that the most important lessons her mother taught her were how to put on makeup and how to “duct-tape her tits together.” She will likely pass down the emphasis on appearances down to her daughter.
When discussing motherhood with Daya after she gives birth, Maritza explains that she opted for a c-section in favor of preventing her parts from “flapping” in the wind. We can deduce that she is not dedicated to being the best mother for her child, for when her child has an accident, she is quick to hand her off. Interestingly, Maritza didn’t know she was pregnant until she was seven months in.
Season 4 brings its challenges for Maritza. Though we were led to believe that she would have to suffer C.O. Coates‘ perversity, he shows no interest in her, and C.O. McCullough soon takes his place. This doesn’t mean, however, that she is not still degraded by the prison guards. While driving a bunch of guards back to the on-campus housing, the new guards tease Coates about having sex with her. Instead of fearing this topic of conversation, Maritza says, “You know what gets me so hot is when guys compare me to breakfast and when they talk about me like I’m not even here. How about you call me that oatmeal in the front seat, and I’ll totally be yours?”. Although a comment like this inside the walls of Litchfield would ensure her a shot, the guards laugh instead of punish her for back-talking.
She continues to work for Piper‘s Felonious Spunk business until Maria Ruiz begins, and her loyalty switches because she’s offering red slipper socks, which are more preferable to Maritza. Though she thought she was getting more perks in switching over to Ruiz’s operation, she soon plays an integral role in the operation, moving the panties out of the prison and having Ruiz’s cousin, Alonso, coming by and taking them from underneath the van.
The gig was supposed to be easy, for Maritza prides herself in manipulating men; however, when C.O. McCullough starts accompanying her, she finds herself having to buddy up with her instead of manipulating her sexually. Though the operation goes well, one of the guards catches Alonso and begins interrogating him. Thinking quickly, Maritza tells him in Spanish to follow her lead with the story she comes up with, but unfortunately for her, C.O. Humphrey understood what she said to him.
Feeling the pressure build with C.O. Humphrey watching her every move, Maritza approaches Ruiz about backing out of the operation because she’s anxious all the time and has trouble eating. However, Ruiz makes it known that she has no choice but to continue her job. The next time Alonso comes to pick up the goods, Maritza gets the guards suspicious about Alonso and has him chased off campus. When confronted about the situation, she claims to have protected the operation because of Humphrey’s threats, but she also admits that she believes Ruiz would push her under the bus when they were finally caught, so she was acting out of self-preservation.
While she might have saved herself in one department, C.O. Humphrey has overheard her conversations, specifically the one with Flaca about their “would-you-rather-eat…” game. He brings her into the house and holds a gun to her head, forcing her to choose whether to eat flies or a baby mouse. Preferring to live, she suffers to swallow the baby mouse, which is not at all like a little “jelly bean.” Later, she tells Flaca that she felt its feet in her throat as she swallowed it.
This incident causes Maritza to vomit for several days following the incident. Though the guards notice this behavior as well as know that Humphrey was with her a few days earlier, they don’t do anything to protect her or investigate.
Maritza apparently bounces back as quickly as humanly possible once she learns of the opportunity to look fabulous in front of the cameras that are heading to Litchfield to report on Poussey Washington‘s death.
Maritza's heartbreaking storyline in Orange Is the New Black season 7 is making fans sob

What happened to Maritza Ramos? Why is Maritza in prison in Orange Is the New Black?
Orange Is the New Blackseason 7 is finally here and Maritza Ramos (Diane Guerrero) has returned to the Netflix series.
Ever since Orange Is the New Black first aired on Netflix in 2013, fans have been in love with Maritza. From her hilarious one-liners to her adorable friendship with Flaca, it's easy to see why she's so popular. Not to mention, Diane acts her in the most incredibly perfect way. However, Maritza wasn't in OITNB season 6 at all. After the Litchfield riot at the end of season 5, she was separated from Flaca and sent to an entirely different prison.

Thankfully Maritza is back in OITNB season 7 but her storyline is so sad that viewers are struggling to watch it.
WARNING: ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK SEASON 7 SPOILERS BELOW
We first see Maritza in episode 2 of season 7 ('Just Desserts'). Maritza is out of prison and we see her win a booty contest in a club. An NBA player then chats her up and it cuts to them sleeping together and flirting. He even invites Maritza to fly with him to LA. However, Maritza is forced to say no because she is on parole and can't leave the state. The episode ends with Maritza back in the club. Seconds later, she is detained by ICE because she doesn't have her ID on her.
In the next episode we find out that Maritza is sent to is the same detainment centre which Blanca was sent to at the end of season 6. The two of them then work together to try and find a way to be set free. In the process, Maritza tearfully reunites with Flaca because Flaca, Red, Morello, Gloria and Nicky have all been sent to cook for the people imprisoned in the ICE detainment centre, including Maritza and Blanca.
Flaca then works to get a hold of Maritza's mother to prove that she is a US citizen but she finds out from Maritza's mother that Maritza was born in Columbia. Maritza had no idea. Flaca then finds a number so that Maritza can get a free lawyer to represent her. However, Maritza shares the number with all of her fellow detainees to help them. Noticing this, the guards flag it and Maritza is deported.
Here are just a few of the fan reactions to the storyline.
It's horrible to watch but given how real ICE is, it's important viewing. The storyline actually hits very close to home to Diane Guerrero, who portrays Maritza, too. When Diane was just 14, her parents were detained and deported to Columbia.
Diane is now one of the most prominent advocates for immigration reform in the US and she's even written a memoir about her own experiences called In the Country We Love: My Family Divided. Her activism is remarkable.

Widow of slain NYPD cop offers reward for family’s missing dog
The widow of NYPD cop Rafael Ramos — who was gunned down in cold blood alongside his partner, Wenjian Liu, in 2014 — needs the public’s help.
After her husband’s death, Maritza Ramos got their two sons a dog — born on the very same day “their daddy went to heaven,” she tells The Post.
The pup went missing last week, and Martiza is worried that someone may have picked her up and doesn’t know where to return her.
“It’s heartbreaking,” she said Thursday. “My kids are devastated.”
Maritza took to Facebook last week and posted a “missing” flyer for her beloved pooch, whom she dubbed “Heaven” on account of her birth date.
“Please help bring heaven home!” she wrote, offering an undisclosed reward.
The Ramos family believes Heaven — described as a Maltese/Yorkie mix — “wandered off” on July 12 while they were sitting outside their home in Brooklyn.
“We went inside and I called her to come in and we thought she came in,” Maritza said, noting how she closed the front door behind her.
“She had lost her collar and I was supposed to go get her a new one the day before, and I didn’t — so now she’s missing.”
The worried mother has been posting flyers “all over the neighborhood” in search for her four-legged best friend.
“I got her when she was 3 months old,” Maritza said. “She was my gift from God and my husband. He knew she would help us overcome this horrible time.“
Officer Ramos and Officer Liu were both murdered in December 2014 — just days before Christmas. They had been sitting inside their marked police car when a career criminal upset over the police-involved deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown ran up and shot them.
Describing why she got Heaven for her two kids after her husband’s death, Maritza said: “They lost their dad. I was thinking to get a dog to cheer them up, to give them something to look forward to.”
It wasn’t until after they got home and started looking through Heaven’s paperwork that they realized how special she really was.
“It made my heart stop for a minute,” Maritza said. “For me, it was a sign from God that he was sending us that to keep us comfort.”
Heaven will be 4 years old this December — on the four-year anniversary of Ramos’ death.
“She’s super loving,” Maritza said. “She sleeps with me every day. She’s like a baby.”
This is the second time that Heaven has gone missing since joining the Ramos family. Maritza told The Post that “someone actually stole her” from in front of their house last July.
“We saw the person on camera and then they wanted money to get her back,” she recalled.
Luckily, the family got her back a short while later without incident.
“July 12 of last year was the day [she was found],” Maritza said.
“My concern is that someone picked her up and has good intentions,” she explained, “but doesn’t know where to return her to.”
Anyone with information about Heaven or her whereabouts is asked to call (347)-743-9714.
Shah felt the convulsive contractions of her larynx as a member. She dug her fingers into his thighs, sniffing with her nose. and goggling from the tension of the eyes looked into his face. Tears entered the corners of her eyes.

The bus driver started the engine, slowly taxied out of. The depot, rolling the front door towards Katya, but she darted into the middle one, wedged into the end of the cabin. The excitement of the evening turned into a sluggish calm, Katya's body relaxed, the lower abdomen pulled and released. Katya suddenly felt the thick sperm abundantly leaving the vagina.
Sliding her hand under her skirt, she caught the clots, gathered them in her palm and slowly moved them into her mouth.
