Officer Montrell Jackson’s Facebook:

I’m tired physically and emotionally. Disappointed in some family, friends, and officers for some reckless comments but hey what’s in your heart is in your heart. I still love you all because hate takes too much energy but I definitely won’t be looking at you the same. Thank you to everyone who has reached out to me or my wife it was needed and much appreciated. I swear to God I love this city but I wonder if this city loves me. In uniform I get nasty hateful looks and out of uniform some consider me a threat. I’ve experienced so much in my short life and these last 3 days have tested me to the core. When people you know begin to question your integrity you realize they don’t really know you at all. Look at my actions they speak LOUD and CLEAR. Finally I personally want to send prayers out to everyone directly affected by this tragedy. These are trying times. Please don’t let hate infect your heart. This city MUST and WILL get better. I’m working in these streets, so any protesters, officers, friends, family, or whoever, if you see me and need a hug or want to say a prayer. I got you

Officer Jackson left behind a wife and newborn. Our thoughts and prayers are with Officer Jackson’s family.

Please share this post to show people that police officers are real people who are trying to protect their community, they have families, and they are just trying to make their cities a better place.

    His story brings so many tears to my eyes. His baby has to grow up without the love of his father all because of this on going bs. Protest all you want but do it how the famous and respected Martin Luther King would….peacefully!!!! No more killings need to happen especially to the innocent officers who are doing all they can to protect us while the system investigates and prosecutes anyone (cops) who may or may not have used violence where it was not needed. To his wife and child….I am so sorry for your loss and all you have to endure. Will always keep u in my prayers….a stranger

    Everyone in our family and all my friends have high respect and love for the police. The heroes that keep us safe with their own lives in the balance. When you are surrounded by the very criminal’s that defy you it might be hard to remember there are the rest of us who appreciate and even love you for what you do and deal with every day. The next time someone gives you a cross look or disrespects you, remember us. There are plenty of us out there.
    Unfortunately it is hard to display this during the busy rush of day to day life other than a wave or a smile in passing. My prayers are with you and your families.

    To the family of this wonderful, loving and dedicated officer, I am so sorry for your loss. Our nation which was founded under IN GOD WE TRUST must once again take control. Right now everthing is out of control due to those that deny GOD. My heart aches every time I hear an officer has been shot. Tell me why Black Lives Matter thinks their lives are the only ones that matter? Our wonderful men and women in Blue will always get my respect and will be honored by me and my family ( their color skin does not matter). Please people violence against our officers is a sin and you will have to stand before GOD to answer WHY?.

    It saddens me so much to hear of these senseless deaths. As was said above, protest these atrocities peacefully. This particular officer was not to blame, this officer was African American!!

    My sincere condolences to his family. No one should have to lose their lives to senseless violence. The world lost a fine human. RIP

  • Marty C

    How does taking a man’s life communicate anything other than ugly hatred? It furthers no cause except more blood spilled.

  • Sue

    I am heartbroken at the murder of police officers. They put their lives on the line every day to protect us. I am profoundly grateful for your service. And, I am very sorry for the loss you have suffered. May God bless and comfort the bereaved families, and bring healing to those injured.
