The fact remains that two people are dead who wouldn't be if he kept his MAGA butt at home.

Kyle killed two white people and a mostly white jury let him walk. Shows you how deep they can go to maintain a narrative. Next November, take Ron Johnson's Senate seat. There's some revenge.

This is a goddamn travesty of justice. At SO many levels.

There will be an immense ground swell of similar murders. Protesters will need to start arming themselves and taking sniper positions before marches take place, and target like minded killers.

Honestly we need to return to the wild wild west laws...

Where guns are NOT allowed in town.

White boy, white victims, which screws up the narrative. It's not a race thing, it's a Trunplicans vs. human beings thing.

and if he wasn't white?

would they revoke his privilege God-given right to travel to another city to hunt down and murder people supporting anti-Magat causes?

I'll be ready. I sure as hell am "feeling threatened."

I can’t see how we will ever have 12 people agree again, especially against right wing defendants. That includes Donald Trump for sure.

America is less safe today. As I said earlier, possession of a firearm creates its own justification for usage. Context and circumstance are for losers, and the dead.

Rittenhouse’s attorneys used the same jury whisperer as OJ.

This was going to be a tough case notwithstanding some of the prosecutors’ missteps.

Still, two dead and one handicapped for life. I hope the city of Kenosha has good insurance…

One of my nutwhack FB friends posted a meme showing the two guys "attacking" Rottenhouse with the text something to the effect of "as if you needed more proof that it was self defense."

That conveniently ignores that Rottenhouse had already shot and killed a man and the two guys were just trying to take away his gun so he couldn't shoot anyone else.

If one were convicted, they could eventually appeal pretending the prosecution mishandles information, etc.

Does it work the other way around? can the prosecution appeal?

Was listing to AM radio show running an errand, and the callers all agreed with verdict. Not a wild crazy show, mostly a normal dude, so a bit surprised.

He got off track with trying to bring up the people who were killed how they were "bad" in their past lives, which somehow got several peeps going, but its completely irrelevant.

Then went on a tangent about the media hyping this up, which is exactly the point of what they do... so, meh.

Its just gonna bring so many crazy peeps out.

And they did mock jury scenarios to see if having the kid testify would work.


Sounds like the defense had lots of resources. Where do you think the $$$ came from to defend him?

Thanks to the judge we got a screwy not guilty verdict. He broadcast how he thought the verdict should go.

Worth reading. And over charging prosecutors play a large part.

Yes. That's it. Did the jury even have a choice with his honor presiding over the trial?

Yet race and white privilege are very much in play. As i texted to my son earlier today, I have absolutely no doubt that if he had done what Rittenhouse did I would not be grieving this verdict today as my son would have been killed by the police that night.

I haven't followed the trial closely but the general sense of what I heard from those who have is that the Prosecution was not very effective and did not make a case beyond a reasonable doubt. Perhaps so but I believe the bar for reasonable doubt had an extra measure of height to clear. A white jury is likely to cut a scared white teen a break. It's a break that I know would not have been afforded a black teen by a jury with a similar make up.

Yes it was a political outcome and a stark reality for many of us to live with.

we will truly know if the fix was in if the bumbling prosecutor becomes DA in the future.

The DA who lost the OJ trial was reelected and his son Gil, who is now the US Ambassador to India, went on to become mayor of Los Angeles. Being either competent or incompetent as prosecutor doesen't seem to have much downside.

I would say both political and very much race based.

The protests going on in Kenosha were around the police shooting in the back and crippling of a Black man named Jacob Blake. I have no doubt those protesting were considered ‘race traitors’ by Rittenhouse’s ‘Kenosha Guard’ and Proud Boys cohorts.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Sadly, I'd have to agree with this assessment.

Lesson: When you want to incite a riot or scare off a black kid carrying skittles, be sure to walk backwards to maintain the self-defense easy-out.

If the guy in charlotte had been driving backwards, I'll bet he'd have been let off too.

BTW, I’ve seen a few things online saying there is no evidence that Rittenhouse is a white supremacist.

He may not have a carrying card (if there is one for such folks), but he sure likes to hang out with them and flash their signs:



Umm…repeatedly:



…even when the other guy isn’t doing it:



Just a coincidence, or perhaps some kind of misunderstanding, I guess.
