Trump Promising Pardons for Killer Cops: Georgia Trooper Jailed for fake tail light stop murder

VT:  Trump has been advised that he can pardon anyone, now even state crimes.  We believe an order is out for the police to kill every African American they find in a car.  Based on timing, think of another reason for such an obvious coldblooded murder.

The Klansman in uniform ran the victim’s tiny Sentra into a ditch over a supposed broken tail light (not in evidence) then shot the 60-year-old in the forehead because he thought the Sentra had suddenly become a Landcruiser and was going to crawl out of the ditch and run him over…none of which is in evidence, all fabricated.

This is now both a state murder charge and federal civil rights investigation, alleging the cop is KLAN.

Atlanta Journal Constitution: The GBI has charged a Georgia State Patrol trooper with murder in a driver’s death, and the victim’s family attorney says a federal civil rights investigation has been launched.



On Friday, Jacob Gordon Thompson, 27, was fired and charged in the Aug. 7 shooting that killed 60-year-old Julian Lewis last Friday in Screven County. Lewis family attorney Francys Johnson said he also learned Friday that the U.S. Department of Justice had approved his request for the civil rights investigation, which Johnson asked for because of other allegations against Thompson.

“We got lots of messages from people in the community that the habit of ex-trooper Thompson was to racially profile and harass Black and brown people on the highway,” Johnson, former head of the Georgia NAACP, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “This was not shocking to them that this happened.”

Authorities have said the shooting took place after Thompson attempted to stop a Nissan Sentra for a broken taillight on Stoney Pond Road in Screven County.

After a brief chase down several county roads, the trooper initiated a PIT maneuver, and the car came to a stop in a ditch, the GBI said. The trooper fired one round, fatally striking Lewis.

In an incident report, Thompson wrote that he shot Lewis in the forehead because he thought Lewis was going to run him over.
