[Excerpts] An air of sadness has filled Montezuma City Hall as elected and non-elected staff members mourn the loss of City Councilman Cordel Jackson, 51. Jackson, who was a husband and father of three, was discovered some time around 5 p.m. on Saturday on James Khoury Boulevard in Peach County by two passersby... Jackson, who had served as a captain and investigator with the Peach County Sheriff’s Office, had been in “his private vehicle and was wearing civilian clothes.” As for the reasoning behind the suicide, Rooks couldn’t answer, though he did say, “The sheriff (Terry W. Deese) told me that Cordel had been suffering from depression for the last few weeks.” Rooks continued, “Cordel was a real asset to this community and will really be missed.” He said, “I had known him for about 20 years, and I can say that he never exhibited any of these tendencies that would lead anyone to think he could do this. He was always very helpful and friendly”... Roy Barker, a fellow Montezuma City Councilman, said simply, “He was a good man... Cordel was sort of a blunt person, and he told you what he thought, but there wasn’t anything wrong with that... He made you think and challenged you to stand up for what was right... He was always willing to help people.” Camille Bielby, Downtown Development manager, said, “Cordel Jackson was an amazing supporter. Sometimes, it took some convincing, but once he understood the mission, he was behind you 100 percent”... [Full article here]

  1. I had been married to a Police Officer of high rank. He managed to get away with not only a hit and run, bu attempted murder by use of his vehicle. He ran me over, I needed surgery to fix my leg as he tried to kidnap my son during divorce proceedings.

    And yes folks, he got away wit it. Over 15 yrs, I have reported being choked, stalked, punched, and attacked at my place of employment. Not once was I able to leave anything more then a sheet of paper which was lost as to what happened. And of course the physician I used was one that every officer and family member of officers went to, so all the documentation of all my injuries, dissapeared. The blue wall is thicker then blood. It take a criminal to catch one! Not one officer is upstanding. They cover up EVERYTHING for each other! I have looked down the barrel of his gun too mant times. WHEN IS THIS WALL GOING TO BE TAKEN DOWN!

    MY DEEPEST SYMPATHIES TO YOUR FAMILY, AND I HOPE THIS BEAST IS BEHIND BARS FOR GOOD!

    Sincerely,
    Battered but not Beaten
