Jake Gardner:

    Four people are dead. One criminal trial is pending, while a second will never take place. And amid all that death and uncertainty, the two shooters at the heart of the incidents are enjoying spectacular martyr status on the right. Jake Gardner, an Omaha, Nebraska, bar owner, who shot and killed a Black man during local Black Lives Matter protests in May, died of suicide this week, according to his lawyer. This just days after Gardner was indicted for alleged manslaughter, use of a firearm in commission of a felony, attempted first-degree assault, and terroristic threats in connection with that incident. As news of Gardner’s death broke, right-wing commentators were quick to valorize him as the victim of leftism run...
    LinkedIn Jake Gardner Omaha bar owner Jake Gardner took his own life by gunfire Sunday, according to his attorneys, three and a half months after he shot and killed a 22-year-old black man named James Scurlock outside of a bar Gardner owned on May 30 during the protests that were ignited by the killing of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. After the shooting that night, which Gardner maintained was done in self-defense, investigators questioned him for hours and watched videos that captured the struggle that led up to the shooting. Police nor Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine found cause enough to charge Gardner for the shooting. According to Kleine, Scurlock had Gardner in a chokehold...
    An Omaha bar owner, who was a two-tour veteran and had been cleared by Douglas County District Attorney Don Kleine of charges after fatally shooting a rioter outside of his bar in May, was found dead by suicide on Sunday night, less than a week after a grand jury indicted him. Jake Gardner, 38, who shot 22-year-old James Scurlock after he was apparently protesting the death of George Floyd outside his bar, acted in self-defense, according to Kleine. However, following unrest largely because of the races of Scurlock, who is black, and Gardner, who is white, the DA appointed special prosecutor Fred Franklin and a grand jury, hoping “it would restore public faith in the justice system,” NPR reported. Franklin, who said...
    The white Nebraska bar owner who shot dead a 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. A grand jury indicted Jake Gardner, the owner of The Hive bar in Omaha, on manslaughter and several other charges in the May 30 shooting of unarmed 22-year-old James Scurlock. Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine initially declined to prosecute Gardner, deciding that he acted in self-defense, after reviewing video of the incident and witness statements in the days after the shooting. Kleine said Scurlock jumped on Gardner’s back and began choking him after the bar owner fired off two warning shots in front...

    A Nebraska bar owner who fatally shot a man on a night of violent protests in Omaha in late May was indicted on manslaughter charges Tuesday by a grand jury -- months after the shooting was ruled self-defense, according to reports. Douglas County District Attorney Don Kleine last June originally ruled bar owner Jake Gardner’s actions in shooting protester James Scurlock, 22,  “were justified” after reviewing a video of the confrontation. Gardner is White and Scurlock was Black. The protests and shooting came soon after George Floyd’s May 25 police custody death in Minneapolis. Kleine soon after requested that a grand jury and special prosecutor review the case amid backlash against his decision.

    A grand jury has charged a white bar owner who killed a young black man during protests in Omaha—more than three months after the local prosecutor quickly declared it a case of self-defense. Community outrage over the initial decision not to prosecute Jake Gardner, 38, led to the appointment of a special prosecutor to look into the May 30 shooting of James Scurlock, 22. On Tuesday, the special prosecutor, Fred Franklin, announced the grand jury had voted to charge Gardner with manslaughter, use of a firearm in commission of a felony, attempted first-degree assault, and terroristic threats. Franklin said the panel was presented with more evidence that police dug up in the last three months—including evidence “about activity that Jake...
