White Ex-Cop Who Fatally Shot Daughter’s Black Boyfriend Sentenced to 15yrs

A judge has finally sentenced a former Tulsa, OK police officer to 15 years for the 2014 fatal shooting of his daughter’s 19-year-old Black boyfriend.

After three previous mistrials, the decision to convict Shannon Kepler came after six hours of deliberation.

Kepler claimed self defense saying he fired on Lake because he thought he was armed despite no gun being found and witnesses testifying that the 19-year-old was unarmed when he was shot.

Kepler was sentenced to 15 years in prison for killing Jeremey Lake, the Black boyfriend of his daughter in 2014. Shannon Kepler was also fined $10,000 for shooting and killing Jeremey Lake.

Lake’s aunt, Pam Wilkins, who allowed the couple to stay at her home, said the ex-cop had tracked down his daughter to bring her home and began shooting Lake when he tried to introduce himself by reaching out to shake Kepler’s hand.

At the jury’s recommendation, the judge handed down a 15-year sentence to Shannon Kepler.

#SHANNON_KEPLER_YOU_ARE_PIECE_OF_SHIT_AND_YOU_ARE_A_FUCKING_COWARD_FOR_TRYING_TO_USE_SELF_DEFENSE_AS_A_DEFENSE_FOR_KILLING_AN_UNARMED_MAN! SO WHAT’s NEXT … HE WILL BE COVERTLY DOING TIME, IN SOME MINIMAL SEGMENT PRISON, NOT IN HIS STATE, BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT FAILS THE NEED TO PROTECT A CRIMINAL? HE’s A COWARD AND I HOPE THERE WILL NEVER BE PEACE ON EARTH FOR HIM AND FOR THE JUDGE THAT GAVE HIM A HEINOUS LIL SENTENCE, AS MANSLAUGHTER, WHEN IT WAS ENTIRELY RACIALLY MOTIVATED AND PREMEDITATED! HE VIOLATED HIS CIVIL RIGHTS. HE KNEW HIS DAUGHTER BOYFRIEND WAS BLACK AND THAT MAKES IT A FEDERAL OFFENSE! I HOPE ANYONE IN JAIL … WHO DISCOVERS HIS JACKET, MAKE HIS ASS WHIPPING LOUD AND MESSY! HE’S A COWARD, TO SHOOT AN UNARMED MAN! HE CAN FIGHT AND IN PRISON, YOU CAN ONLY PROTECT HIS BITCH ASS FOR SO LONG! WE ARE GOING TO FOLLOW HIM IN, AND OUT OF PRISON! HE WILL NOT HAVE ANY PEACE ON EARTH!
