Excerpt...

(Jake) 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.”

7. Really looks that way.

President Trump on Thursday retweeted a video of a supporter saying that the "only good Democrat is a dead Democrat."

9. Yep, he and FUX SPEWZ are demonizing Democrats, making the word itself an insult.

And he’s openly, repeatedly asking and encouraging his followers to gang up against Democrats. Any Democrat will do, to them. They’ll go out driving and drinking on some starry Saturday night, looking for someone to beat up.

8. He may have been "protecting" his bars.

What he may not understand, like so many capitalists: things can be replaced, while people can’t.

12. Geez.

From Heavy.com:

Kleine said after reviewing video it was determined Gardner was justified in shooting Scurlock. The county attorney said Scurlock had caused damage to the building housing Gardner’s bar before he was shot. Kleine said, “There was damage to property and Mr. Scurlock was killed.” He also said Scurlock had Gardner in a chokehold during a scuffle. He said social media rumors that Gardner had used a racial slur were deemed to be untrue. Kleine added, “I hope that this great community that we live in can get through this without disruption. This is the decision that we’ve made.”

Just kick your feet up and chill out. Everything should be fine.

The Constitution will survive, provided the President and his coterie uphold it.

17. with video of it, that might be all it took.

as I said in the other discussion on this, that video should be released. If this was a legitimate defensive shooting, it should be known. If the DA is playing games, we should know so protests can be targeted and pressure applied.

11. This won't go over well

Like the investigation into Senator Loeffler being dropped after her husband made a $1M donation to Trump.

So much corruption but I think people are starting to get really fed up with it.

20. Big Game Hunters are strange that way.

If I were king of the planet, I’d have a gun exchange. All those bringing in a weapon would receive a camera. Lots of guns? Give ‘em a bunch of lenses, too.

A picture lasts longer. And, like some fishermen, throwing the catch back in the wild gives someone else a chance, plus it is good for the species.

16. when you come armed and looking for trouble, it finds you.

armed, confronting protestors, protecting his precious property, and a scuffle breaks out. of course he goes to the gun. couldn't use his fists. he brought a gun looking for an excuse to use it.

19. And that is precisely the trouble with guns.

The fact the bar owner possesses one made it a lot likelier to be used.

My grandfather, a veteran of World War 2, did not own a firearm of any kind. He said he wouldn’t want one around because he knew he would one day get so mad at some so-and-so or another that he’d use it.

He was a college professor, a big brother to four women.

18. Douglas Co Atty Don Kleine conclusion: Self Defense

https://www.3newsnow.com/news/local-news/live-city-officials-hold-briefing-as-city-county-offices-shut-down

"Kleine showing video that shows the bar owner being tackled, regaining footing and then being tackled again. That's when bar owner fired, killing Scurlock."

"Kleine says the shooter was tackled and he fired two shots before those people get off of him and Scurlock jumped on the shooter and he was shot once in the clavicle. This is Gatsby surveillance.@3NewsNowOmaha"

"Kleine says you can't shoot someone who is stealing a bike or a 12pk of beer from a gas station. Deadly force can be used if someone is in fear for their life and they can't retreat safely."

"Kleine: the law says even if they're mistaken but if the basis is reasonable to believe safety is at risk you can use deadly force."

"Kleine: we're talking about a civilian who is backing up, told people to get out of there, then is jumped by two people, and then choked by a 3rd (Scurlock).@3NewsNowOmaha"

"Kleine: There was a consensus that the actions of the bar owner, the shooter, were justified.@3NewsNowOmaha"

21. Thank you for the details.

I’d be in fear for my life if assaulted like that, too. No reason for violence, apart from defending oneself or others endangered by criminals.

About 35 years ago, I caught someone inside my car, a Fiero GT. At first, I thought it was a child playing race driver. When I got closer, I saw he had ripped the top of the steering column off and was hot-wiring the car. He saw me and jumped out. I was about to clobber him with my briefcase, but I saw it was a kid of about 14. I was stunned, stared in disbelief, and just let him run by. He then jumped into a huge car that had pulled up behind me. He jumped into an open door in the back and drove off. Two guys were in front.

I don’t think I’d be here today if I’d knocked him down. If I had and survived, I’d be angry for hitting a child.

The GOPee has decided to go full terrorist, and openly encourage political murder.
