Omaha bar owner who shot, killed protester won’t face charges

The white Omaha bar owner who shot and killed a 22-year-old black protester on Saturday night will not be charged as he had acted in self-defense, the Douglas County Attorney announced on Monday, adding that his actions ’were justified.’ Jacob Gardner shot James Scurlock in the clavicle while Scurlock had Gardner in a choke hold during a confrontation that also involved other protesters.

Set more precedents like this please. They seem a bit slow to learn and need more examples to get the idea.

Man don't u just love it that the daily mail is marked as "europe" hhhhhhahah.. i mean sure europe is very much diffrent then the/... in left vs right.. (in general it's a poor way to massure ideas and idiology..) but i mean come on.. one can see the bias and framing from ths title... (most people don't read articals btw.. only the clickbait titles..) let me tell u somthing.. when they frame it by "won't be charged" it's a huge diffrance compared to saying"self defance"... most people only read titles! (So remind me again why's the daily mail marked as "europe"

"Protester".... A euphemism in the media for "rioter".

Even the CNN (actually MSNBC) article said the bar owner was knocked down by a protester and placed in a headlock. It's unfortunate, especially if it was a true protester and not simply a thug, but I'd call it self-defense. In Florida, you can shoot anyone uninvited to your property. That was already the law so nothing has changed.

“Protester” you know, I doubt that. Rioter is probably more likely

Lol, the summary and all the titles fail to mention that the guy was trying to take the bar owners firearm. Here’s a little tip for you folks - if you don’t want to get shot, don’t attack and assault people who are clearly armed and advertising that. The moment you do, they have a right to use lethal force to defend themselves. I know, I know, this should be so obvious, but some people clearly don’t understand, or don’t care about their life.

The rumor is that this guy fired into a crowd shouting the N word and a black hero tried to disarm him. In reality this guy brandished a gun to scare people out of his club, he followed them outside and was tackled, on the ground and wrestling he fired twice.

Titles add race into this in every chance they get, because money, and people soak it up ideologically like cattle in a automated farm.

Capital punishment for theft and property damage. Is this a story from Saudi Arabia or America?
