Omaha, Nebraska bar owner, Jake Gardner, shot and killed a protestor on Saturday during the third night of riots happening after the death of George Floyd.
Gardner, the owner of The Hive bar, will not be facing charges for the death of James Scurlock, as it was found the shooting was in self-defense. The thug attacked the small business owner and it came down to a life or death situation, according to Omaha World Herald.
Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine said on Monday at a press conference that after reviewing evidence and talking to witnesses, it has been determined that Gardner shot Scurlock in self-defense. Kleine also played a video of the confrontation at the press briefing.
Kleine said that Gardner was standing outside his bar on Saturday night, urging protesters to move along, and could be seen talking with a group of young men — one of them being Scurlock — while backing up.
The report added that after an exchange of words, Gardner ended up lying on his back in the middle of Harney Street — on which The Hive is located — and fired two warning shots, but to no avail, as the struggle continued while Gardner remained on his back.
Then, while Scurlock had him in a chokehold, Gardner fired again. This time, the shot struck Scurlock in the neck, killing him.
Gardner was taken to Omaha police headquarters late Saturday night and was released roughly 24 hours later, reports Omaha World Herald.
The Scurlock family is very disappointed by the decision, according to their attorney, Nebraska state senator Justin Wayne, who added that the family is requesting that Kleine turn the case over to a grand jury.
I don't see how the thug's family can be disappointed in Gardner not being charged. If their son had not attacked him, then he would still be alive today.
