The victims of #BlackOnWhiteViolence aren't faceless nobodies, they are men like Andreas Probst who leaves behind a wife and children after his life way taken by some car jacking thug (who police won't name). Media of course won't point out the glaringly obvious racial violence… https://t.co/xAWdtrE8v1 pic.twitter.com/9ygbwOtknc

How Andreas Probst succumbed to death?
Andreas Probst retired in 2009 and later relocated to northwest Las Vegas. However, on August 14, 2023, tragedy struck as he was cycling on North Tenaya Way, near West Centennial Parkway, when he was struck by a speeding car. Upon receiving an alert from Andreas’ Apple Watch indicating a fall, his daughter, Taylor Probst, was quick to respond. She and her mother, Crystal Probst, hurried to the scene of the accident, which happened to be just 3 miles from their residence.
Unfortunately, despite their efforts, Andreas Probst was pronounced dead at the University Medical Center. The Metropolitan Police Department has escalated the charges to include an open murder count after obtaining video evidence of the driver committing the crime. The identity of the 17-year-old driver has not been disclosed due to their age. Subsequently, the 17-year-old driver was apprehended and placed in a juvenile detention center. According to reports, the Metropolitan Police Department has concluded that the incident near the intersection of Tenaya Way and Centennial Parkway was a deliberate act.
In the video footage, the driver and their companion can be seen joyriding along the road, initially colliding with another vehicle attempting to change lanes. Subsequently, they encountered Andreas Probst, who was cycling in the same lane. The video captures the driver asking their passenger if they were prepared, to which the passenger responded:
Yeah, hit his a**
