Earlier in the month, Montrell Jackson took to Facebook to express his thoughts after recent shooting deaths of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile and five Dallas police officers.
“I swear to God I love this city but I wonder if this city loves me,” he wrote on July 8. “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. … Finally I personally want to send my prayers out to everyone directly affected by this tragedy.
