A Nebraska small business owner and Marine Corps veteran has committed suicide after being charged with manslaughter, stemming from an incident in which he fired a weapon on a violent criminal rioter who attacked him on camera.
38-year old Jake Gardner shot and killed Black Lives Matter rioter and 22-year old James Scurlock, who attacked his father outside of Gardner’s bar in Omaha, Nebraska in July. Gardner went on to brandish a gun at Scurlock and a riotous mob in response to their violent behavior, and the group of men attacked him. After firing two warning shots at the rioters as the attacked and shoved him to the ground, Gardner shot Scurlock, who declined to relent in his violent behavior.
Eyewitness accounts of Gardner’s interaction with Scurlock suggest it was a textbook case of self-defense. Watch video of the interaction and decide for yourself.

Prosecutors who investigated the incident originally declined to charge Gardner, recognizing that the case appeared to be an example of textbook self defense. After leftist and Black Lives Matter activists placed “intense pressure” upon Douglas County Attorney Donald Kleine, he relented to an external review of the incident overseen by a federal prosecutor. A federal judge issued a warrant for Gardner’s arrest on Friday, on charges of manslaughter, attempted assault, and terroristic threats.
Gardner had been supposedly planning to turn himself into Omaha Police on Monday, but a friend of Gardner reportedly confirmed to the Gateway Pundit that the 38-year old man committed suicide over the weekend.
Gardner’s body was found in Portland, Oregon on Sunday, with his attorney describing his death as a suicide. His lawyer, Stu Dornan, is emphasizing that Gardner’s conduct when targeted during the July BLM riot was self-defense, and that his actions are not to be taken as an admission of guilt in any capacity.
Gardner was a decorated Iraq War veteran who had suffered two traumatic brain injuries as a result of his military service.
His death appears to have been clearly the result of highly questionable and dubious criminal charges. The federal prosecutors that usurped the role of local officials to indict Gardner should be held accountable for this tragedy.
Fredrick Franklin, an assistant U.S. attorney in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Omaha, is the one who went for charges after the District Attorney ruled it was self defense.

Victim of Denver Shooting Identified as Veteran, Hatmaker Lee Keltner
A great American by all accounts.
The victim of a heinous shooting in downtown Denver on Saturday has been identified as a small businessman and hatmaker named Lee Keltner. Keltner was shot at point blank in the head by a leftist ideologue who was supposedly acting as a “private security” guard for a NBC affiliate reporter, without being properly licensed to do so or to carry a weapon in Colorado.
Keltner speaks of his craft in a video that emerged on Sunday after his death, briefly describing his service in the US military in one point. He considered his business a means to keep the heritage of the American west alive.

Keltner had been present at Denver’s Civic Center for a Patriot Prayer event that was picketed by a contingent of leftists who identified themselves as Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA.

Keltner was involved in a verbal altercation with a Black Lives Matter protestor when Dolloff approached him from his side and shot him in the head. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Antifa supporters have claimed that Keltner utilized pepper spray on the “private security” guard first, but photo imagery reveals that Keltner only deployed pepper spray after Dolloff pointed a gun at him.
The slide of Dolloff’s pistol is already seen cycling as Keltner uses pepper spray- a non-lethal weapon- in self defense. The confrontation between Keltner and a man wearing a Black Lives Matter shirt hadn’t even been violent, and it’s extremely hard to imagine why Dolloff would’ve assumed he had to shoot Keltner.
Denver police initially identified Dolloff- who wasn’t named to the public until late Saturday night as a “private security guard with no affiliation with Antifa.” In actuality, he is not registered or licensed to act as a private security guard in Colorado, and it’s unclear if he’s even eligible to carry a weapon. A query of Dolloff’s social media accounts reveals he has extreme far leftist views. He’s been booked into the Denver jail system on suspicion of first degree murder.
The life of a great American has been taken by a leftist ideologue who callously opened fire at a peaceful protest.
