Jake Gardner, the white Nebraska bar owner who shot dead a 22-year old black George Floyd protester in May, was hit with a slew of charges this week, more than a month after prosecutors deemed the killing was self-defense. The District Attorney admitted that they were “pressured” by local activists and politicians to bring the charges.

A Nebraska bar owner that killed a rioter has been charged with “terrorism” and “manslaughter” by a District Attorney who initially admitted it was blatant self defense.

The DA has also admitted that they were “pressured” by local activists and politicians to bring the charges.

The bar owner, Jake Gardner, has now been indicted by a grand jury on counts of manslaughter, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, attempted first-degree assault and making terrorist threats.

On May 30, the 38-year-old bar owner confronted a group of rioters outside one of the bars he owns in Omaha and was knocked to the ground.

“From there, he fired two warning shots and tried to get to his feet, prosecutors said. As he did, Gardner got into a fight with one man, James Scurlock, 22. The two scuffled before Gardner fired a shot that killed him,” Yahoo News reports.

The incident prompted a wave of further “protests,” particularly after Donald Kleine, the Douglas County attorney, determined that Gardner had acted in self-defense and declined to bring charges.

“A week later, Kleine said in a statement that after hearing from local residents and elected officials he would welcome an outside review ‘in this rare instance.’ He added, ‘I made a decision and I would not change that decision based on everything I know today,’” the Yahoo report explains.

Douglas County District Court Judge Shelly Stratman then appointed a special council, Fredrick Franklin, an assistant U.S. attorney in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Omaha, to handle the case, though they said they expected the same outcome.

Biden’s ‘Kids in Cages’ Prove Hypocrisy on Immigration

March 1, 2021 NY Post and Breitbart 2

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris savaged President Trump for keeping “kids in cages.” But now they’re doing the same thing by housing 700 migrant teens in some of the very same facilities they decried. Biden is ending Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” program for Central American asylum seekers, which took pressure off the border.

In response, school administrators have not tried to improve academic achievement, but have launched an ant-racist training program.

It is obvious that these special prosecutors have been paid off, or are being bribed or threatened in some way. Do people like being pushed around by the mob because I don’t like it at all. What a coward that Attorney is to change his mind on such a serious matter and then expect everyone to go along to get along. All of society is allowing these few losers to rule? And everyone who has fair skin is supposed to lie down and die because they are lacking melatonin. Wake up people and see what they are trying now. It’s… Read more »
