We don’t know his reason.. did he leave a note?LOLHe was pushing a mob away from the business that was having its windows broken, he should have pulled out right there. Blasted them. Like the hero he isStop lying. His father was attacked because his father attacked others first.Yes in a normal situation youThe totality of the event makes it apparent that several crimes were committed. First. Carrying without a permit. That is a Misdemeanor. Second. Brandishing. Lifting his shirt to show the gun and try to scare the people away. You can’t do that.And what does that have to do with him acting in self-defense? We have a video of two men and a business the business is getting windows broken a father is trying to push the mob away from his business he was violently a pushed into the ground the son approached the mob and ask them to leave as they were coming towards him he was retreating telling the mob that he had a gun and they still attacked him.I honestly do not get it. Ok. Maybe I do. Gardner was White and White folks are not supposed to be treated like Black Folks.
First Gardner had a history of fighting and causing problems. Several Misdemeanor Convictions are on his record. Note. Pretty much all of them have to do with his getting in fights.
Douglas County Attorney Kleine said that Jake Gardner previously had a concealed carry permit but that it had expired. Carrying a concealed weapon without a permit is a misdemeanor, butomaha.com
If Gardner had been the one who was both Black and killed the White Wing would be on here screaming that Gardner was a thug who lied and broke the law regularly and his death is a good thing. He deserved it.
He lied on the Liquor Permits. He was argumentative with police. He failed to notify police he was armed. He got into fights. All of this shows that he was a troublemaker. If he was Black the people singing his praises would be here shouting he was a thug a product of the gangster lifestyle and cheering his death.
But he was White. So we will ignore his criminal history.
Now to the Charges. First the text of the law.
A person commits manslaughter if he or she kills another without malice upon a sudden quarrel or causes the death of another unintentionally while in the commission of an unlawful act.
Carrying a pistol without a permit is an unlawful act. Brandishing is an unlawful act. Discharging two shots into the sky is an unlawful act.
Scurlock was another guy with a criminal history.
You guys really need to find a more sympathetic poster child for the race hatred you are trying to stir up.
Discharging warning shots. That is illegal in cities because the bullets have to go somewhere. And they can and have struck bystanders in the past. Innocents a long way off can be hit.
The manslaughter charge was a stretch. But not an impossible conviction. I doubt they would have gotten a conviction on that. But the others were just short of certain. Even with some 87% of the people in the city being White they almost certainly would have found him guilty for the other crimes.
Now back to the history of Gardner. He went through life imagining himself as Billy Badass. He spent years getting into trouble. That history is the reason I think a Manslaughter conviction was a very slim possibility. The Prosecutor could convince the Jury that this guy was always looking for a fight. A confrontation. That day was his dream come true. He did not care about the law. He did not care that it was illegal to carry a gun without a permit. He wanted to show that those animals rioting would run like scared rabbits just from his showing them the pistol he had.
As I said. Slim. But not impossible.
What is interesting is that all those times that people fought with police and the Law and Order types say it can be sorted out in court if the guy is really innocent. You all don’t sound so enthusiastic about the idea of one of you having their day in court. All of a sudden you sound like the Liberals. He can’t get a fair trial. In a town with 12.33 percent Blacks, below the national average, he can’t get a fair trial? Really?
As soon as he decided to carry without the permit, he was going to jail eventually. It was merely a matter of time. And oddly the Law and Order folks are outraged by that simple truth.
Are correct but when under attack from
A mob your your constitutional right to self-defense Kicks in.
he did not ask for his business to be attacked he did not ask for his father to be attacked he did not ask for himself to be attacked. god bless that hero
Heroes don't kill themselves to avoid prison.
