The man in custody for the slaying of a Chattanooga police officer on Saturday has an extensive history of armed robberies, according to Colorado court records.

Police say Jesse Mathews, 25, shot and killed Sgt. Tim Chapin, 51, after attempting to rob the U.S. Money Shops store in Brainerd.

Erlanger hospital, where Mathews is receiving treatment for bullet wounds suffered in Saturday’s gun battle, would not release Mathews’ condition on Monday afternoon.

    FACEBOOK photo - In a self-portrait from his Facebook page, Jesse R. Mathews, 25, displays his tattoos. Mathews was convicted of robbery in 2003 in El Paso County, Colo., and sentenced to 20 years in prison. He had a parole hearing scheduled in March, according to Colorado Department of Corrections records. He is listed in state records as a fugitive inmate and authorities say he is wanted on three robbery warrants. Mathews is the primary suspect in the 040211 shooting of 51-year-old Chattanooga Police Department Sgt. Tim Chapin.

In a Facebook profile picture, Mathews’ bare chest is covered in tattoos depicting handguns, brass knuckles and cartridges. One arm shows a tattoo of an exposed bicep muscle dripping blood. Along his collarbone reads “Tools of the Trade.”

Mathews’ actual tools could have included 16 guns, according to an affidavit of arrest issued by the Colorado Springs Police Department in February.

Mathews is wanted by Colorado Springs, Colo., police in connection with three armed robberies earlier this year involving a fast-food restaurant, a pawnshop and a pharmacy.

In the affidavit, police said Mathews had made threats to return and kill his robbery victims if he was caught.

Mathews, serving the eighth year of a 20-year sentence for aggravated robbery, had been released from a minimum security prison in 2010 to ComCor, a halfway house for offenders in Colorado Springs. He was put on escape status after failing to sign back into the house on Feb. 12.

Mathews’ record stretches back to 2002, when court documents show he was charged with committing 31 offenses — including 10 counts of aggravated robbery — during the course of a 10-day crime spree in Colorado Springs.

Mathews, 17 at the time, pleaded guilty to one of the robberies in 2003. The other charges were dismissed.

After Mathews escaped from ComCor, Colorado Springs police believe Mathews robbed a Walgreens on Feb. 13 before journeying east. A friend told police Mathews had family in Florida and North Carolina.

Police spokeswoman Rebecca Royval said she believes Mathews’ parents were in Chattanooga, though investigators did not release any additional information related to the investigation Monday.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is heading up the probe into Chapin’s slaying, spokeswoman Kristin Helm said.

Royval said the days following the incident have left the department shaken.

“It’s been very difficult for all the officers,” said Royval. “But we still have to do our job.”

Royval said chaplains have been available for officers.

Chapin was a 26-year department veteran with a wife and two children. His funeral is slated for 1 p.m. Thursday at Abba’s House in Hixson. Two visitations are scheduled for Wednesday at the church from noon to 3 p.m. and 5 to 8 p.m.

what i dont understand is how in the world did they let that gangster out of prison....this is a prime example of the double standard justice system in good old USA....it is absolutely half-baked,idiotic idea. its an old say that states..when digging a hole for a man you better dig two...this thug had two previous arm robbery and he was out walking free...can you beleive it...only in america....guess it help when you have white lawyer, jury, judge..DA....who see their own son and brother when they look at that thug....a black man would have gotten 20yrs for stealing a loaf of bread....really amazing....case and point...the mississippi case where black girl robbed store for 11 dollars and get 20 years.....it is amazing what go on in this country

This is a tragic example of the frustrations of Law Enforcement throughout the country.

We work hard to place people such as Mathews in prison for the safety of the communities we are sworn to protect. Enter the other side of the justice system when they have more resources and work hard to place Mathews back into the communities, the cycle continues. Sadly this part of the cycle ended on Saturday when a Brave Officer lost his life protecting the same type of people who worked so hard to insure Mathews was given the chance to escape.

God speed Sgt. Chapin,

It is a sad day to have lost yet another Brother whom I have never met. My heart and prayers go out to the Chapin Family, Friends and the fellow LEO'S who were blessed with knowing this brave Officer. My heart and prayers also go out to all the additional Officer's and citizens who were involved in or wittnessed this tragic event.

R.I.P Sgt. Chapin

i agree with half of what you said...it is a tragic...my condolences goes out to the honorable SGT.CHapin and his loving , and giving family....i respect them greatly...nad lament with them in this hour of mourning..but the system we have is bias ..supect should have never been out...release some of the people in prison and jail for petty stuff. Arm robbers are very very very dangerous he should never had been released.....and history shows that if he had been black he would still be in prison...you cant ague against that fact.

I have worked in both the State and Federal Law Enforcement field for an extended period of time. In the federal system the suspect usually does at least 85% of the time they are sentenced. The Feds also subscribe to the minimum mandatory sentencing guidelines. This eliminates the bleeding hearts from allowing these criminals back onto the street. There are regularly examples of sex offenders who are released from prison only to victimize again, often killing multiple victims prior to being caught by unsuspecting Probation and Parole Officer's (bleeding hearts). I agree with you the system is broken, Mathews should have never been released. If Mathews would have been Federally charged he likely would have been given a twenty + year sentence and not allowed parole. In an ideal world people such as Mathews would be given such a harsh sentence that if released they would be to old to harm any additional victims.

What if criminals like this man actually had psychological help in prison (rehabilitaion)? Instead of just being thrown into a cage. The whole system is based off of out dated shame based punishment ideas. Thing is, which is a fact, it is a different period in time (than 1950's Leave it to Beaver illusion), it's not progressive liberalism, it is just a fact. How can we go on using outdated versions of punishment that have shown for ages that throwing a man in a cage does nothing. I bet this man has had trauma of some sort done to him throughout his life. This is a learned behavior. We aren't born to automatically kill each other, unlike what mainstream media will tel you. Sucks for Cop that got shot, but that is a possibility of the job. I blame the system for not seeing a guy in desperate need of help released.

my point brotherblue...had robber been black his butt would have not seen the day light...and history..and record verifys this...the law always soft with white males....at least 99percent of times....(always exception 1%)ie white treated like a black lol lol lol

April 5, 2011 at 9:23 a.m.
chet123 said...

silenius940 cant accept those premise...let be sensible....we will have to release over half of dangerous prisoner out of jail....every killer will make claim of psychological and mental condition and responsibility would not exist for wrong deeds(like a little child)...just be fair all im saying and it is bias,,,very bias....and the good people...good so call christian people allow this mis-justice

April 5, 2011 at 9:35 a.m.
silenius940 said...

well, they don't have to claim mental condition, their actions alone say that. I was meaning to actually GET rehabilitation, other than just thrown into a cage. Don't release, but treat. Look at it like they were in a car crash as a kid that their parents were driving, and now after the crash it is their responsibility to take for damage done. Or we could just keep on going saying that if you make a horrible horrible mistake you are hopeless and basically be rid of. I mean drug addicts need help not punishment for being, it is the year 2011 people, wake up!!!

silenius940 said...

I like what you are saying about the racism Chet, it's true. I wonder if the tatoos that this guy has will be held against him. Because guys with strange tatoos are not to be trusted.

That is all, we should all continue watching fox news now and go shopping for things we dont need and remain quite about whats really going on. we don't want to rock the boat by any means. thinking outside our parents 1950's illusory worldview is wrong and scarey.

chet123 said...

I dont want sound mean or intolerate....but i have the truth on my side....if roles were reversed...you would cry bloody murder......this thug should have not been out of jail....if he had been black he would have not seen daylight.....remember willie horton...cause sen.michael dukakis an presidential election (Black Man On prison committ murder furlough)and someone head should have rolled in that case for he was a scum-bag....only look for consistency

Chet and silenius, hope one of you and/or your family, is the victim next time instead of a productive member of society.

April 5, 2011 at 10:32 a.m.
silenius940 said...

You are right, all non-productive members of society should be killed.

Ok, lets get back to fox news, also less web browsing unless you are shopping online, otherwise net surfing is getting in the way of watching fox news and shopping for things that make us happy.

Rivieravol said...

Classic liberal thought, "blame the system." It's too much to hope that bedwetters like you are ever going to realize that some people are just evil and there are only 2 solutions for civilized society; kill them or put them away forever. All the psycho babble in the world would not have helped Hitler, Charles Manson, Ted Bundy and this tattoed thug. Hopefully he will die soon so we won't have to provide him anymore medical care.

April 5, 2011 at 10:46 a.m.
silenius940 said...

The system, is a collective consciousness of people like you and me. we are all humans, (how liberal a thought is that, to say we are all humans) so i'd say the struggle is whithin and it is up to each individual that makes up the whole. But obvisouly since a large part of the system (collective consciousness) is fear driven (which is a fact, Fox News is the most viewed news station) I'd say it is it's fault. I cannot think of a more loving thing to say to my fellow americans than to say stop feeding in to corporate media, such as fox news that is ran by rich people that want you to remain afraid and not question anything.

April 5, 2011 at 10:53 a.m.
Rivieravol said...

The most viewers of ANY Fox News show is O'Reilly and he usually comes in around 2,000,000 viewers. That is not even 1% of our country's population, hardly a ,"large part of the system."

tarheeljosh said...

To the obliviously self-focused commenters of this story: HOW DARE YOU read a story about a slain officer and decide that this is the forum on which to vent your racial and political frustration! Should this man have been walking the streets? NO! On that point you are correct, but your self-serving arguments of racial and political bias are misplaced at best and down-right disrespectful. While there is a time and place for those discussions, this is not it. This city is mourning the death of a police officer; race and party would not play into that. If you cannot grasp a concept that basic, I hope your opinions here are swiftly disregarded.

riviervol....i dont hope any harm to any of your family...but it tells me how low your character is to even mention or a such a suggestion....i can do something you my friend is incapable of doing...thats sticking to the issue...and for as liberal....that a catch word...its certainly not in the bible....just a term the replublican uses because they are impotent in their auguments....unable to engage in conversation with any strength One thing im positive about ...you are motivated by hate...thats your driving force....its sad....but you will self-desstruct...and i stand by my word...this scum-bag....would have never seen day light had he been black....now smoke on that

Not so, tarheeljosh. You are not required to read the debate in any forum.

And in many circumstances, terrible events are the only events that will provoke people to share opinions and discuss the tough issues.

Go somewhere else to pat yourself on the back while standing up for someone or something that does not require it.

If you are offended by the direction of thought that this terrible circumstance has promoted, then do not scroll past the end of the story.

April 5, 2011 at 11:59 a.m.
Rivieravol said...

Josh I can understand your feelings but I also agree with DAO that many times tragedies force people to address issues that they ordinarily would not. With all respect to Sgt Chapin and his family I would think the greatest tribute to him would be for his death to force us to address the issues that allow someone like his killer to be out on the streets to prevent more senseless murders.

Chet there is discrimination in the Justice system but it has more to do with wealth rather than race. A wealthy black man has a much better chance of beating the rap than a poor white man. Just ask Ray Lewis or O.J. Simpson.

chet123

Do a little research and you'll find that Revolving Door of Justice is color blind with people of all races being in and out of prison many times for violent crimes of every type. Look at todays article in this paper titled "Chattanooga: Police nab the “Joker” in connection with shootings" The article states: "Since 1993, Woods has been arrested in Hamilton County 22 times on charges including evading arrest, robbery and assault, according to court records" He was even charged with 1st degree murder in 1998.

The point here is this jerk shouldn't have fallen through the cracks in the penal system. And I'm certain that 100% of our community is disgusted and saddened by the events that took place Saturday and our condolences are with the family of Sgt. Chapin. God rest his soul.

Let us not loose site of the real reason for this tragedy. MUSLIM EXTREMIST!! I know it seems trivial that we would spend so much time and effort on a possible threat and ignore an imminent threat. Jessie Mathews was an imminent threat. Yes these extremist must be exposed and neutralized, but let's be honest, when you lock your door at night, carry a concealed weapon, look over your shoulder etc, who are you guarding against? Muslims or Jessie Mathews? I have vented enough.

RIP to a REAL hero.

SeaSmokie59er, I dont think Fox News could have said it better. This is more proof that we should remain terrified of our fellow human beings. Especially the brown skin colored ones in the middle east. Maybe we should go ahead and put chips under our skin so we can scan each other when we meet or pass each other in walking to make sure each other are not terrorists before we talk, also to see our criminal history.

Ok back to watching Fox News and shopping for things we don't need to get our economy back. never question the mainstream media. Remember to not make eye contact with anyone today because they might be terrorists and to remain afraid of each other.

chet, looks to me like you don't have a job. I just read your wants on this article and you have posted a comment every two minutes since yesterday morning. Is the fact that you don't have a job b/c some white guy wouldn't hire you?. Is the fact that you still live with your mother a product of white supremacy? Or did you just sieze a prime opportunity to show the entire chattanooga region how big of a foolish clown you are? I'm gonna let you decide b/c there isn't one comment that had any recent facts or made any sense at all. While you are at home waiting on the mail to run to go get your gov. check think up something more interesting than "if he was black".-PDZ

Dear "Wealthy Proud Black Man", Take your 'woe-is-me' attitude and shove it right up your black behind. I'm so tired of hearing people like you demand the same respect that  white people receive while simultaneously acting like a complete imbecile. You're just an uneducated black man who thinks the world ('us white folk') should bow down at your black feet because 100's of years ago your kind suffered. I'll stop being racist when your kind stops demanding the red carpet. Most likely, the reason we haven't heard or seen much about blacks being treated like Jesse Matthews is simply because media would be exhausted trying to cover all the crime that blacks commit.

What I would like to do is call the hospital that that lowlife is staying in and tell them to exclude my taxdollars from paying for his medical expensenses. Its amazing how we are paying with our taxdollars for his hospitalization and yet it is necessary for Sgt. Chapin's family to have a college fund for his children set up with community help so that they can have a higher education. I see something HIGHLY wrong with this picture, we should not be paying for that criminal's hospitalization but the city should be paying his immediate family a pension that would help to pay for his children's education. Ron Littlefield you need to step up and treat your city's protectors like they need to be treated and not like a piece of trash on Market street.

mobil 1 or chet, probably one and the same since you talk just alike.

You are a sad sort of being. (i can't call you human since you don't have the intellect of a human). Some day when you grow up you come back and talk to people like they are humans and not some ebonic plague.

Like Chet saying he is a rich man, I seriously doubt you even have a receptionist.
