Frequently Asked Questions

The Fresno detective Jeff Stricker claimed that Kai wasn’t innocent in the events that made him a viral hero. What evidence is there of this? 

In fact, multiple witnesses at the scene, PG&E and IBEW themselves hailed Kai as a hero for jumping into the fray without concern for his own safety. McBride’s defense tried to claim at first that Kai veered into Rayshawn Neely, when that story fell apart the claim was that Kai drugged Jett making him flip out. The trial transcript itself makes it clear that Jett McBride was seriously delusional long before he ran into Kai. McBride claimed he had a concussion and was under the influence of Vicodin at the time Stricker interrogated him, but when asked how he was feeling at the time McBride simply replied “great.”
