Notice the media's use of race in the headline even though no hate crime charges have been filed? You'll never see a headline like "Black Man Charged With Raping and Murdering College Coed". " 'It's about justice': White bar owner is charged with manslaughter in James Scurlock shooting In a resounding indictment reflective of the twists and turmoil of 2020, a grand jury on Tuesday charged a white bar owner in the shooting death of a 22-year-old Black man during protests downtown on May 30. The grand jury rejected Jake Gardner’s claims that he acted in self-defense in the death of James Scurlock, charging him with four felonies: manslaughter, attempted first-degree assault, making terroristic threats and weapon use. If convicted, Gardner, 38, could face up to 95 years in prison. Whether that indictment restores a sense of order — or creates a chaotic court battle — remains to be seen. Special prosecutor Fred Franklin, who led the grand jury, was quick to note Tuesday that the indictment indicates probable cause, which is a much lower standard than the one needed to convict: proof beyond a reasonable doubt. And Gardner’s defense team is expected to mount a vigorous self-defense case. https://omaha.com/news/local/crime-...f9845c51b.html#tracking-source=home-top-story "
