    Ridiculous. The 'Criminal Justice System' is completely upside down now.
    It's like Bizarro World in this country anymore.

    “Omaha business owner who shot rioter in self defense charged with 4 felons, including manslaughter“

    On the surface it sounds like an injustice and my gut feeling says I wish I was on the jury. However, without knowing all of the facts I wouldn’t want to jump to a conclusion.

    Judges give very clear instructions to juries and sometimes those instructions make it difficult to allow one’s feelings to influence those decisions. In other words, facts can be a beotch.

    Unlike with Kyle Rittenhouse, there is no clear video of the incident.

    Especially if it is a Democrat judge who supports the rioters.

    Not saying his actions where not justified.
    However...
    You do not step out into the crowd.
    Do not argue With these turds.
    Tell them to stay back.
    Find your self surrounded or separated, move.
    You keep your mouth shut about details until you get a lawyer.
    When questioned “that person attacked me, I want him or her arrested, I want a lawyer.

    Had to get that in there...

    “Franklin said. “I’m not commenting on whether or not that evidence was presented to the grand jury. … Being a racist is not against the law.”

    Nice wording. He simply threw his arm around his front.
    “Three seconds later, as Gardner was rising from his knee, Scurlock jumped on his back and threw an arm around Gardner’s front. Gardner told police that Scurlock had him in a chokehold.”

    Eighteen seconds is a long time to be choked.

    “Both Gardner and his father repeatedly yelled at Scurlock to “Get off me” or “Get off him.” Eighteen seconds after Scurlock jumped on his back, Gardner switched the gun to his left hand and fired over his shoulder, killing Scurlock.”

    Keep digging until we can find the right witness’s.

    “Franklin said Tuesday he initially thought he would arrive at the same conclusion, that the shooting was justified.

    But Omaha police — and Franklin’s investigators, both retired Omaha police detectives — kept working. Investigators interviewed 60 witnesses.”

    What are the laws in Nebraska? Could be there has to be a trial. There has been a homicide, the shooter probably admitted he shot them (in self defense). So they have a crime, and someone that has admitted to it. It may be the law is that the defendant has to show that it was self defense to a reasonable person level. People should check the law in their jurisdiction. Where I live, all homicides go to the Grand Jury. If someone has intruded into your home, there is a presumption of self defense on the part of the people that live there. So here, people may complain about a clear self defense case going to the Grand Jury, when it means nothing in terms of evidence or guilt. The law requires it. A good shoot often results in a "no bill" and the person who was shot, or their family cannot sue.

    Cannot stress enough understanding all the laws around deadly force and self defense in your location, or where you are traveling.

    Didn’t anybody teach that young man that there are some words that are just too racist to say out loud?

    Sad. We lost a great one, because a corrupt DA wanted to fan the racial flames and ruin this man's life. They protest and riot when some POS criminal gets shot, then calls it an injustice. No, this is an injustice.
