Chapter 5 of “The Devil Got Appointed in Georgia”
I’ve often wondered what people are thinking when they do the things they do. Do they have any intuition or pangs of the events forthcoming? Katie Sasser expressed an ominous prediction, possibly not fully appreciating the gravity of the words. Her mother recounted her saying, “the Glynn County Police Department will do nothing until someone leaves here out of a body bag.” While that statement, in and of itself is not completely true, I am sure Katie believed they were true and the parts she got right, chills me to my core.

This is the bodycam footage captured after Sasser’s first domestic violence incident.
The Glynn County Police Department went to extraordinary lengths to prevent Cory Sasser from what he ultimately did. There is documented evidence of how Chief Powell tried to keep Sasser in jail after his prior episode. It can be found in the court documents and the Baxley Informer says:
“However, when Doering retired, a Police Chief was appointed that Jackie Johnson could not control. Someone who rearranged how the department was run. Someone who wanted transparency and honesty with the public. Somebody who, unfortunately, some in the community are now calling for the County Commissioners to terminate—the current Police Chief, John Powell.
As a rule, the Baxley Informer does not back political candidates, however, since the Chief of Police is not an elected position, we have decided to make an exception in this instance.
From all the legal documentation we have come across, it appears that Chief Powell is an honest and transparent leader. The Glynn County Commissioners would be making a colossal mistake if they caved to public opinion and fired him.”https://www.baxleyinformer.com/post/jackie-johnson-s-path-to-destruction
Here is a timeline of events (compiled from timelines from the FBI and D.A.’s office respectively)
GBI timeline from May 29, 2018-June 25, 2018
Very different events description not a lot of details in Jackie’s version. No real info about the circumstances leading up nor is there mention of her part in them.
Going on to the following days:
Each of the ****** next to events indicates a point of contact that was either law enforcement or court officer by Sasser. In the last two days, there are 34 times someone with training had contact with this man prior to him “going postal”. Think about that. 34 times there were opportunities in that last two days that something/someone should have intervened. Wow.
Here is Jackie’s version:
Of course in Jackie’s version, nothing is mentioned about contact with her office via Liberty Stewart, which happened twice that day.
Lawyers are taught about a thing called the “but-for” test. If “but for” x, y would not happen. If, but for Jackie’s behind the scenes shucking and jiving, Katie Sasser and John Hall, would be alive.
