The officer’s words, now with new meaning, were going viral hours after the shooting.

Montrell Jackson, a 10-year veteran with the Baton Rouge Police Department, was a husband and father to a newborn son.

In the Facebook post, Jackson said he was “tired physically and emotionally.” He also expressed disappointment in “family, friends, and officers for some reckless comments” about recent police-involved incidents.

“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,” he wrote.

Read Montrell’s full post below:

“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.”

A GoFundMe page has been set up by family members to support Jackson’s wife and newborn son.

Jackson and two other officers were killed and three more cops were injured after responding to a report of a man with a gun in Baton Rouge. The deadly shooting comes less than two weeks after five Dallas police officers were slaughtered in a targeted attack during a protest rally.
