A man took his own life last weekend here in the northwest.
The news summed it up as “white man who killed a black man takes is own life?
Care to hear the real story.
Jake Gardner served in the U.S. Marines and did his time in Iraq.
He owned two bars in Nebraska
When “peaceful protestors” began trashing and looting downtown Omaha, Gardner went to his businesses to stand guard.
Rioters tossed a street sign through the plate glass window.
Two “peaceful protestors” pushed him to the ground so he fired a warning shot.
James Scurlock, a man with a long violent criminal history, loaded up with meth and coke, jumped on Gardner’s back and began choking him out. All of this on video
Gardner, shot in self defense and Scurlock died.
Of course news reports of course highlighted skin color though it was irrelevant unless you think scurlock, a black man, attacked gardner because he was white.
The DA spent 12 hours reviewing all the video and concluded “self defense”
Until the mob went to the DA’S home and protested.
So the DA charged Gardner. gardner’s landlord evicted Gardner’s businesses…his only income…Go fund me kicked Gardner out too…but helped his attacker’s family raise a quarter million dollars
Attacked by a criminal, his businesses gone bust, cut off to raise funds in his own defense…he came to Hillsboro and took his own life
Summed up by reports here in the Northwest as “white bar owner kills black man”
Anyone want to call that justice?
