San Antonio is a market where viewers are drawn to crime coverage. It has its share of murders. KSAT tends to cover them in one day, then move on. When an off-duty police officer was killed and the agency investigating his death clammed up, that was something that seemed odd to KSAT. There was no praise of his life and career by his brothers and sisters in blue. Within 24 hours of his death, they began to peel back the image of an officer who proudly wore a badge and swore to protect and serve his community to see one who took a different oath that cost him his life. He was also a member of a notoriously violent gang: the Texas Mexican Mafia.
