    No doubt. There are obviously some sick tastes in here.

    On the surface, that seems to be a ludicrous comparison, as the officers killed the girlfriend, she didn’t die by his hand. Would he have gotten off on “self defense” if he killed a police officer? I’m guessing not a chance. This person was rightfully convicted of weapons charges as well.

    Im not even sure I agree with that verdict either, given that his criminal action is at least partly attributable to the girlfriends death. He fired a gun at officers, a gun he should not have had. I didn’t follow that case, but those type cases would seem to hinge more on whether the police properly announced themselves which is totally different scenario vs. a vigilante going out into a riot.

    Here is what Jason Whitlock says the Kyle Rittenhouse trial was all about... He nails it! In a short video... in his own words.

    This is the BIG PICTURE, REALITY, END GAME.

    the fact that it baits you, says something, and I don’t need to look up another case to know the contexts are different..

    Rittenhouse was acquitted because he had a credible claim of self-defense. It still doesn't change the fact that he was a 17-year old vigilante armed with an AR15. Sorry but untrained armed citizens shouldn't be patrolling streets and essentially functioning as law enforcement officers on their own volition with the problem further being compounded when the untrained vigilante is a teenager. Maybe the argument that he was there to protect businesses would have had some validity if he confined his presence to the premises of the business he was allegedly protecting. Once he hit the streets he became a vigilante and he should not be lauded. Although Rittenhouse may have had a credible claim of self-defense, the next time one or more truly innocent persons could end up losing their lives to an untrained well-armed vigilante. While the jury issued the proper verdict Kyle Rittenhouse should not be lauded as any type of hero.

    So when does jump kick man's trial begin. Has he even been charged with anything? I don't think so, not even simple assult. Do you think I could attack someone and brutally kick them in the head on national TV and get away with it?

    Sure. Of course. And stay home and problem is solved for good ol' Kyle.

    Personal responsibility is still in play.

    Carrying a rifle in public does not make you a vigilante. You must have a fuzzy understanding of what a vigilante is. Rittenhouse was not attempting to enforce any laws, he was protecting property and exercising self-defense. That is not vigilantism. Defending property against a mob is not vigilantism.

    Or, fix the problems that lead to the rioting and property destruction and the problem is then actually fixed for everyone.

    So what you're saying is that any citizen can arm himself and patrol public streets claiming that he's protecting property. Ok, got it. So naive, I always thought that was function of law enforcement.

    I guess that if all the riot participants had come armed, and all felt personally threatened, that the ensuing bloodbath would be justified, and the last man standing would be acquitted.

    I agree with nearly everything you stated but I guess will have to agree to disagree on the part of …citizens should not be able to protect their property, livelihoods and community from lawlessness. Especially when there isn’t anyone else there, government official, law enforcement or otherwise to help protect it.

    My original response was more about the way the writer tried to frame Right leaning individuals and why the majority of them supported the verdict. It was not because we wanted a “own the lib” moment or throw it in the face of Leftist. It was because of the treatment & judgement early in the process most of the media had for KR. They slandered him, repeated lies about him and tried their damnedest to have him convicted in the court of public opinion. It was a clear case of journalistic malpractice and abhorrent behavior from several “professionals” in the media. And I think most from the “right” are just relieved that the jury examined all the evidence and justice was served. Most of the politicization of this is coming from the left . THEY made it political.

    So last nights riot in Portland could have been fixed by convicting Rittenhouse? I think I understand the mind of the Portland thug now. Thanks.

    Joseph Rosenbaum was a convicted child molester and also had a domestic abuse conviction for beating up his girlfriend. Anthony Huber also had multiple domestic abuse charges also among other felony convictions.

    They are convicted abusers of children and women who like Rittenhouse paid the price for making really bad decisions that night. For better or worse, they both have faced their judgement.

    Pretty simple. Racism sells right now and everyone has tried to turn the case into a racist crime. The fact is that all four individuals involved were white and not sure why any were at a BLM riot in the first place.
