This young man lost his life because it was taken from him by an individual who had the gun and badge. My condolences go out to The Lorentz Family and may they find comfort and peace during this unnecessary tragedy that cost Gage his life.

Gage was a great man & an even better friend. I will agree that the world is a far less better place without him in it. Enraged by this happening I've watched the video over and over again. There was absolutely no need to end his life. This was just another bad person hired on by law enforcement to go wave his little dick around. The ranger who shot & killed Gage deserves the same treatment. The only thing that brings me even the slightest bit of peace with all this is... you can't run from karma... what goes around comes around. I even sent an email to the national park advising them on updating the website because not anywhere on there does it state that when being pulled over by state park rangers they will proceed to escalate situations & in return take your life. This is ridiculous & justice needs served, not just for Gage, but for his family as well! #justiceforgage

Anything beyond a simple ticket was uncalled for and the actions of this ranger show the abuses of power wielded by an incompetent authority that’s clearly not putting the work and effort into the proper training that should always come with the responsibility of the policing of human life.

I watched the video as soon as I saw the report about it in The Hill. Robert Mitchell is thin-skinned, dumb, reckless, and a killer. He escalated, got into an altercation, and then shot Charles Lorentz twice. Having watched the video, it was absolutely all avoidable if he wasn't a bully and a coward. After killing the young man, Mitchell then cuffed his dying body, and then WAITED EIGHT MINUTES to perform any first aid. That tells me all I need to know about Mitchell's fitness. If it was really a horrible accident, he would've helped immediately. He was probably worried about saving his own ass in those eight minutes, but that's just me speculating on that last point.

I've called Carlsbad, the NPS, and the regional office a few times, written emails, and even written snail mail letters to all of them. It's outrageous that killer Robert Mitchell is still employed. What a terrible man. Utterly disgusting.

The use of lethal force via the people hired to SERVE AND PROTECT is OUTRAGEOUS!
