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.

Prosecutors Want Stricter Bond Restrictions for Kyle Rittenhouse for Hanging Out with Proud Boys
The Proud Boys are proud of their boy, Kyle.
Kyle Rittenhouse, out on bond after shooting three ANTIFA rioters and killing two at a Kenosha, Wisc. riot scene last summer, is under scrutiny from authorities for merely having a good time at a bar.
Rittenhouse was at a bar with his mother wearing a “Free as F*ck” t-shirt when he was approached by some local Proud Boys. They took pictures together doing the “OK” symbol, which has become controversial due to left-wing hysteria.

As a result, prosecutors in Kenosha County are hoping to modify Rittenhouse’s bond to prevent the young man from enjoying his freedom. They reportedly want to prevent him from being “serenaded” by Proud Boys and other adoring followers.
“Within a few minutes of entering the bar, the defendant was loudly serenaded by 5 of the adult males with the song “Proud of Your Boy,” which is an obscure song written for the 1992 film, “Aladdin.” The violent white supremacist group called the “Proud Boys” was named after this song, which is sung by its members as an anthem and for self-identification,” the Kenosha County District Attorney’s office wrote.
“The defendant later posed for several photographs with these adults in the bar. In each of these photographs, the defendant and the other adults flashed the “OK” sign used by white supremacists,” they added.
The surreal letter from the DA’s office that looks like it was written by an Anti-Defamation League (ADL) operative can be seen here:

The letter from the DA’s house shows how the government is painting ordinary conservatives and Trump supporters by as white supremacists and terrorist threats based on left-wing propaganda.
Big League Politics reported on how Rittenhouse posted bond in November after spending months confined in jail for exercising his right to self-defense against ANTIFA terrorists:
Illinois teenager Kyle Rittenhouse has been freed from the Kenosha County Jail in Wisconsin, after posting a $2 million bond set by a judge on Friday.
Rittenhouse is charged with two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot in August. He’s also charged with a count of being a minor in possession of a firearm.
Rittenhouse was assailed by Rosenbaum while present at the scene of the riots, carrying an AR-style rifle and planning to prevent looting and rioting in Kenosha. Rittenhouse shot and killed Rosenbaum, arguing that he acted in self-defense when Rosenbaum attempted to grab his rifle. Rittenhouse would go on to shoot two men- one of them armed with a gun- who chased him as he tried to flee the scene of the riots.
Rittenhouse had been extradited from Illinois to Wisconsin to face charges. He posted bond through his attorney, Mark Richards, on Friday at 2PM.
Rittenhouse will be remembered as an American hero whether or not he is acquitted in the courts or ultimately made a martyr by a biased and unjust system. The Proud Boys are right to be proud of their boy Kyle in this instance.
