Well the news is that officers for the Crystal city police department arrested Danny Zavala for having an argument with his wife, officers then threw him into a cell and did not supervise him as they should have, Mr Zavala unfortunately committed suicide while in the custody of the police department. Around that same time it is understood that officers were seen hanging around the Cleo's travel center, instead of watching Mr Zavala who officers knew what he was capable of. Hope this is investigated by the FBI and the responsible officers are held accountable for being negligent.

how come you dont report everything?? How can officers know what he was capable of?? Just cause he had an arguement with a spouse they should sssume that your next step is ti kill yourself?? Come on please. There must be more to the story than that. Its best to leave the news reporting to people with actual facts. Then you say it is understood that police were at cleos. OMG you sound so stupid. Lets dig further than that and lets see why the argument even began with them. How about that?? You know since your pointing fingers. He shouldnt even have been in jail to begin with if it werent for the cheating wife.

let's look at the facts. This man chose to take his own life. That was his choice, nobody made it for him. Suicide is a very selfish act. Simply look at all the threads that have been written. Now let's look at the fact that he was in jail. Every agency that has a jail has an obligation to monitor its prisoners. We don't know if this man killed himself after he was checked by someone. We don't if he was placed in a cell and ignored completely. We do know that he is dead because he chose to kill himself. Lay the blame where it belongs. On him. The chief has to report the death to the attorney general's office. An investigation will be done. This is not something that will go away.

This is he truth, they were told that he had threaten to take his own life they should have not left him alone. He should have been given the help he needed. They should not have been "hanging" at Cleo's while a man was dying alone.

I doubt that anyone knows everything that happened. Another person posted he was arrested for making a threat. Now he was in jail for threatening to commit suicide. First of all, people don't go to jail for threatening to commit suicide. Suicide is not a crime. A peace officer can take a suicidal person into custody but has to take them to a proper facility for treatment. So I doubt he was in jail for a suicide threat. Regardless why he was in jail, he is dead because that was his choice. If anyone needs to find victims, they can start with his kids and his parents. Those are the victims of his actions. You say he is dead because of the cops. No he is dead because he chose that route. His wife has been accused of being unfaithful and this has been named as the reason why he chose to commit suicide. So, who is to blame for her infidelities? Who caused her to be unfaithful? She chose that path as well. Nothing justifies adultery. It a choice made by those who want to be unfaithful. But, people have a habit of blaming others for thge bad choices they make.

Nothing's like that happen under chief Going Contreras. Reason is that the chief and officers knew the people of this town.

. You bring up a good point. The current chief was on topix for not allowing his vehicle reposessed. How can he run an efficient office if he can't run his personal life. I heard he lives in Uvalde. If this true, that shows how committed he is to his job and the people of Crystal City. Being a peace officer is being a public servant. As far as chief contreras, he quit a long time ago. He just never left. I'm sure the new chief inherited a mess. I guess you expect us to believe that every officer under contreras was replaced. This would have happened regardless who is the chief. He had made up his mind so he would have found a way to do it.

One too many times should be enough for the facility to get shut down! He was in jail for being drunk & violent & threating to take his own life. He was sent to jail so he'd be safe away from everything he could possibly harm himself with & he took his life inside JaIL.! Police officers should have taken precaution with him being supervised the entire time in custody. Yet the officers dnt give a sh!t about anyone except money filling their pockets! No matter what the situation with his wife is or was she did it for his own good putting him in the hands of the law but apparently the law dnt give a sh!t.

You guys really need to up because nobody knows the truth besides their family and God,so please stop talking so bad about them.
They have children who need to be really strong right now, their family is going through a crisis and all you guys know how to do is talk more stuff.
So first of all get your facts straight alright?
& if you have a comment that involves taking about the family just don't bother to comment at all.
Grow up,& let Danny Zavala rest in peace.

So true he had threaten to take his life and was put in jail for his own safety because he had been drinking. She told them and its on the report that he had said he was taking his own life. So yes its the city fault. They were told to watch him and they didn't do their job once again.

If someone was really keeping him company then we know this wouldn't of happened. So we know thats a lie, about the officers being at Cleo's they were seen there by every customer so thats the truth. You say go back and see what started it? Well what started it is not the point here, ITS WHAT ENDED IT. He was in jail for making threats so what started it was taken care of by the officers who took him and arrested him and forgot about him, but they forgot to supervise him and the END result is what matters in this issue. They simply dropped the ball and didn't provide Zavala with the proper facility and supervision. someone who HAD INDICATED THAT HE WAS SUICIDAL should of been supervised constantly. Not left in there n forgotten about. No matter how you see it, it all falls back on the City because Zavala was their inmate and their responsibility bottom line.

no pendejo.....if his wife wasnt; cheating he wouldn't have done this. blame it on the pd all you want but the fact is that he wanted to kill her . pd has no jailers idiot. inmates have killed themselves in county too and what was said ? i mean there are jailers to take care of them right ? but still they kill themselves. DANNY CHOSE TO DO THIS TO HIMSELF. SO IF HE WOULD HAVE HUNG HIMSELF AT THE HOUSE....WHOS FAULT WOULD IT HAVE BEEN THEN? YOUR SO STUPID..HIS CHOICE AND OTHERS PAY FOR IT. JUST DONT LIKE BLAMING THE RIGHT PERSON OR TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR A STUPID ACTION.

If it was just an argument would've been wiser to have just taken him or escorted him to a relative to stay there till things cooled off but if he got arrested on what charges? If was a detainee then they should have used precautions an observance.
