on january 29th 2014 gerald strebendt was forced to defend himself, resulting in the death of his attacker. he is currently held in jail awaiting his trial. he is the owner and a trainer at northwest training center. if he is able to make bail, he can continue to operate the gym and pay for his defense attorney. this case will be expensive, but worth it to prove that he acted in self-defense. gerald is a kind, loving man that would do anything for anybody. please support him and help him be free of this financial burden that was caused by a terrible situation.
OK, so we might move this over to the Patriot Defense fund.
On some case specifics, what jail is he in? I was not aware that Springfield Oregon had its own jail. I think that goes to the Lane County jail which is in nearby Eugene.
In the past, there has been some sort of fed intelligence operation center there which has been specifically heavily against some of us, particularly me, so anything to do with that area I take personally. I don't recognize that guy but I do recognize a certain MO with the investigation which looks like there had been a solicitation for witnesses to come out and speak against the guy for using a gun.
The facts don't look good, but there is sufficient "dirt" available to put in play on so many elements of what is likely the prosecution side of that case that it might be possible to walk that guy out of jail.
Lacking prior intent, you barely get these cases to go above manslaughter without it being a situation of overcharging. "Road rage" is felony manslaughter, not premeditated murder.
