Markeis McGlockton was shot to death by a known white supremacist Michael Drejka at a convenience store over a parking spot on Thursday, July 19, 2018 in Clearwater, Florida. (Drejka had a history of altercations with customers at this same convenience store including the use of racial slurs and violent threats.)
Drejka had confronted McGlockton's girlfriend Britany Jacobs over the parking spot while McGlockton and his and Britany's son were inside the store. McGlockton upon seeing Drejka threatening his girlfriend defended his family from Drejka's threats by pushing Drejka away from his family. After falling on the ground and McGlockton backing away, Drejka shot him to death.
The Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri found no evidence of wrongdoing and said the killing was justified due to "Stand Your Ground" despite evidence to the contrary. McGlockton was no longer a threat. Michael Drejka had provoked the incident. McGlockton was defending his family from a man who had a history of encounters such as this.
Let's send a clear message that hate is not welcome here and get justice for Markeis McGlockton. Charge Michael Drejka with menacing as a hate crime, harassment, aggravated harassment, and the murder of Markeis McGlockton.
