Justification for the death of Mathew Jackson

      San Antonio, TX

Mathew Jackson was shot and killed by an off duty bexar county deputy in the early morning hours and the family still has no reason as to why he was taken from us. Mat was a father, a husband, a son, a brother, and a great friend and the family needs answers. If the situation was reversed Mat would be in jail and they would have a reason for him being there.

      Bexar County Sheriff's Office: I can assure you the investigation will be fair. As you might expect, we don't want to rush an investigation like this. Today, our Deputy Chief of Investigations met with Mr. Jackson's family and attorney. He answered as many questions as possible. Our job is to investigate and then turn the evidence over to the District Attorney. All questions will be answered in due course. That said, I would caution all to understand some statements being posted are incorrect and in some cases, irresponsibile.

      Based on what was reported, the incident which led to Mr. Jackson's death is highly suspicious. I am signing this petition in hopes that this case will be thoroughly investigated with utmost impartiality. Deputy Thomas was indicted in February, however, after 6 months there has yet to be news of his trial. The suspicious way that the incident was handled by authorities, as well as the excessive amount of time which has lapsed between the indictment and the trial that has yet to be held, greatly weakens my belief that the justice system in San Antonio is being run by capable individuals. Get the job done and do it right.

      Because a young man lost his life over a minor auto accident because of deputy was, like too many police today, too quick to pull the trigger.

      Because this whole situation is just WRONG! The amount of time it is taking to close ... they are investigating their own ... the shooter was put on PAID amin. leave? WTF? We are paying for his civil defense attorney FIRM? WTF?? He's been indicted finally .. when is his trial? When will Mathew's family get some closure and some justice? The guy fired 8 shots and only hit is target ONCE ... why is he even allowed to CARRY a damn gun? More questions than answers!!!
