Black Protester Shot to Death Outside Omaha Bar

Source: Daily Beast

A young black protester was shot dead outside a bar in Omaha as unrest across the nation engulfed the Nebraska city—and the white bar owner was reportedly in custody.

The victim was identified as 22-year-old James Scurlock, whose father called for justice as the city braced for another night of chaos.

“Last night I lost a son, my wife lost a son, my kids lost a brother,” the grieving dad, who has the same name, told reporters at the Malcolm X Memorial Foundation Visitors Center,

“His daughter lost a father. All because he decided to protest against racism. There’s a lot of speculation and rumors about how this happened. I don’t really care to be honest. My family wants closure and peace.

1. "Gardner (the suspect) has described himself as a libertarian, a former Marine...

...and a volunteer for the Trump campaign in 2016."


Of course. He's following his leader's orders to start shooting.

Trump WANTS this violence to escalate. It would give him a reason to declare martial law, and I'm not kidding.

Meanwhile, Putin laughs and laughs and laughs.

8. More info in the shooting here...

Father of slain Omaha protester urges peace; shooter identified as downtown bar owner
By Aaron Sanderford and Kevin Coffey World-Herald staff writers
May 31, 2020

Link: https://www.omaha.com/news/crime/father-of-slain-omaha-protester-urges-peace-shooter-identified-as-downtown-bar-owner/article_0238d156-cea2-54b8-9a54-05e4e6e3ea42.html

(snip)
Authorities would not release the alleged shooter’s name, but The World-Herald confirmed that it was Jake Gardner. Gardner owns the Hive and The Gatsby, two popular bars near the shooting scene.
++++
In one video online, a bystander can be heard saying that a man, who appears to be Gardner, has a gun before the bystander shouts, “That’s not worth it!”

The man with a gun is approached by a group of people, including one who appears to be Scurlock.

After a scuffle ensues, at least two shots ring out before the video cuts off.

Sounds like a hot-head bar owner pissed because his windows got broke out and lost it when protesters approached.

Daily Beast said: "Gardner has described himself as a libertarian, a former Marine who was deployed to Iraq and Haiti, and a volunteer for the Trump campaign in 2016."

10. Guy named is friends with Don Jr.

From the article:

Gardner made no secret of his political and philosophical views. In 2016, while in Washington the attend President Trump’s inauguration, he was interviewed about his views on the Women’s March underway.

“Everyone has a right to speak their mind,” he said, wearing a Trump sweatshirt, with his dog Bron in a MAGA vest.

“Everyone loves the dog until they see the vest,” he said.

He posted a photo in 2017 of himself and Bron posing with Donald Trump Jr. with the caption: “Here’s a guy who returns my emails 100 percent of the time, every time. #FAKENEWS #BRONANDDON.”

16. Not good at the moment

I'd like an investigation. If it was 100% self-defense, I'd be fine with that. I'm not convinced at all that it is yet.

17. Apparently the guy was also a big fan of 311 and they, obviously, aren't happy about it.


?s=20

Yeah fuck this guy seriously.
