Cause of Death.
The following are some tributes posted on social media to honor the life and the legacy of the deceased.
RIP Jacob GardnerEven though we live in the upside down world where self defense from a mob is labeled terrorism and manslaughter at the same time.This life is worth living!This world is worth saving!Dont give up on your righteous self!Because when the laws change against you and your friends are divided; when they lock you up and throw away the key “forever”, you will still have the last laugh, as the hell scape they brought forth will consume them in their own willowing afflictions.
you didn’t have to go so soongod bless your soulrest in peace
If Jacob Gardner was Murdered and it was staged to look like a suicide…you just might.
People have had enough. AND IF LOCAL GOVERNMENTS WILL NOT STEP IN IT IS ON THE PEOPLE TO STEP UP.

Let’s just ignore that the “unarmed black kid” had participated in attacking the bar during a riot and had Jacob Gardner in a headlock when he was shot.
