Justice for Sgt. Kenneth Vann
Bexar County Deputy Sheriff Sergeant Kenneth G. Vann was brutally shot and killed early Saturday morning (May 28, 2011) as he sat in his patrol car while stopped at a traffic light in San Antonio, Texas.
This was a tragedy for Sgt. Vann’s family, to be sure. But it was also a tragedy for every citizen of Bexar County, Texas. Not just another murder, the vicious ambush on Sgt. Vann was an affront to our entire system of law and order. Those who attack peace officers do not merely attack the man or woman behind the badge, they challenge the very foundations of our justice system.
On Sunday, June 5, 2011, the Bexar County Sheriff made an arrest in the case after a tipster called authorities. Bexar County citizens are justifiably proud of the tireless work done by the joint task force made up of several law enforcement agencies, including: the Bexar County Sheriff, the San Antonio Police Department, the U.S. Marshal for the Western District of Texas, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Bexar County Criminal District Attorney, US Customs and Border Protection, and others.
