Indianapolis man gets no prison time for brutal hate crime murder


On June 5th, 2014, Albert Rogers, 26, shot and killed his neighbor Josh Tucker in Indianapolis. Rogers had previously shot at Tucker’s pet dog one week earlier.

The media called it “an argument over a dog.” Rogers claimed “self-defense.” Police charged him with murder.

Rogers fired ten bullets. Some of the entry wounds are consistent with the victim running away from the shooter. Tucker was in his own driveway. Rogers had walked into his yard. Tucker had a lawfully concealed handgun at the time, but never had a chance to take it out.

After Rogers shot at their pet dog, Tucker and his girlfriend had installed an invisible fence to placate Rogers. It didn’t work.

Josh Tucker was playing with his girlfriend’s two year old son at the time he was killed. The murder took place with the two year old and other witnesses present.

However, Rogers was given a sweetheart plea deal that includes ZERO prison time. He pleaded guilty to aggravated assault, and was given ten years of “community corrections.” Prosecutors kept the plea deal a secret from the public until the actual day of the hearing. They didn’t want to deal with public outrage.

The term “community corrections” essentially means probation with a large amount of conditions. That is all Albert Rogers got. One year of enhanced probation for each bullet he shot at his innocent victim.

Tucker leaves behind a twelve year old daughter. He was also financially supporting his girlfriend’s two year old son.
