Last week, “Justice for Jack” supporters marched through the streets of Council.

Sunday, outside the Ada County Courthouse, Boise supporters gathered to urge law enforcement to release any audio or video footage they may have from the shooting. Jack Yantis was shot and killed during an incident with two Adams County deputies after being called to the scene of a car accident involving one of his bulls on November 1st. The rancher brought a firearm with him to put the bull down. Idaho State Police say he and deputies at the scene all fired their guns.

"In shootings where officers have video showing their innocence, the video is released very quickly. So, if it proves their innocence, why hasn't it been released yet? Just because you have a badge doesn't mean you're not capable of committing the same atrocities that anybody else is," said Herrisen Hagens, creator of “Justice for Jack” facebook page.

The Idaho State Police and the FBI are conducting separate investigations into the matter.
