Guam – On day two of the De Soto trial, former G4S Security Guard Frank Jackson testified this morning saying he lost his job as a result of the stress he suffered after witnessing the rampage in Tumon on February 12th of last year.
He said after the tragic events, he asked to be assigned to a different post, because he was experiencing symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder [PTSD]. And soon after, Jackson said he was put on high blood pressure medication. Then, he says he was fired from his job because of his medical condition.

Guam Police Officer Patrick Sanchez also took the stand. He is GPD’s traffic expert. Based on the surveillance footage he studied, he said the car speeding down the sidewalk was traveling at a “dangerous and reckless” speed. He estimated it was going 35 to 39 miles an hour.
At one point he noted that the car went airborne, and lept from the Seagrill area of the Plaza to the sidewalk of the Jungle Java Cafe, before slamming into the Outrigger’s ABC store.
Testimony was slated to resume at 1:45.
