Maybe this wouldn't be happening if he hadn't been demonized and people hadn't jumped to conclusions about him that they now seem incapable of admitting was untrue.

If Biden had any guts and really meant he wanted to heal this country then he'd be reaching out to this young kid himself or at least someone doing it on his behalf.

Same with all the other so-called leaders who made fools of themselves discussing this case. Shame on all of them.

It is never immoral to defend yourself from those who want to do you harm. That's some kind of sick shit they feed females who defend themselves against abusers.

Regardless of whether you are anti or pro Rittenhouse, anyone who thinks aligning with a 18 year old kid who has been proven to make bad decisions is a huge mistake. Eighteen year olds are notorious for fucking things up and you can be pretty sure that Rittenhouse will be no exception. All this attention will just make it more likely that he screws up again because he is getting a big head and will think he is infallible.

R36, please step away from the keyboard. That did not happen as you said it at all.

After the shooting Kyle's friend drove him home and within an hour his mother drove him to the police station in Antioch, Illinois so he could turn himself in. He did so and told them he needed a detective from Kenosha and what happened. He and his mom waited in the police station lobby for someone to come from Kenosha.

Seriously why are people so incapable of learning the facts but I guess that's what happens when the MSM has spent 14 months lying about the facts.

This is so puzzling to me.

The victims’ families are suing Kenosha which makes sense. Failure to keep order led to the whole mess. There was conflicting testimony at the trial about the car,lots. But since the owners gave the keys to the armed men it’s obvious they wanted them,there. I think the owners were afraid of being sued if they fessed up.

They lied. They didn't put the father on the stand did they? He was the real owner. The sons seem like ne'er do wells. Like the one who claimed to be the inventory manager but had no idea how many cars were lost on one of their lost in the arson the night before the shootings - the answer was over 100 cars lost.

Funny though how he had his picture taken with all the people who came to protect his family's lots - with their guns visible including Kyle Rittenhouse. It looked like a family portrait.

A former employee testified he was contacted to see if he could help with protecting the remaining 2 car lots that night. That's who got the keys to the place to let the "guards" in and who was promised a payment for himself and the others.

Yes. The answer is yes. It is just a normal, semi-automatic rifle. Hand guns kill over 10,000 people every year. Long barrel rifles (which would include an AR-15 type rifle) barely kill anyone. Handguns are the problem, not rifles.

There are no federal charges to bring. The purchase was legal and Kyle and his friend handled it legally. Legal ownership never transferred from the friend to Kyle. So, this was not what is considered a straw man purchase.

Kyle DID NOT BRING THE GUN ACROSS STATE LINES but if he had that would have been legal. There is no federal law about transporting a gun across state lines.

Why are people so uninformed about something they seem so enraged about. This is like the Salem witch trials.

[quote]what is so dishonest or unfair about condemning vigilantes?

Stop calling him a vigilante, he wasn't a vigilante r14. They were asked by the owners of a car dealership to help them protect the remaining two from being torched, having lost the other one the night before.

There was footage of Kenosha burning and business owners literally being attacked merely for trying to put out fires on their property and protect their business. A 70 year old main was knocked unconscious by a rioter for trying to put out a fire and deter rioters with a fire extinguisher. When you see shit like that, and you know that, apparently, these crazy-ass people like to attack people who put out the fires they set, if a business owner asks for your help and you know the police have been ordered to stand down because...politics, it makes sense to arm yourself.

If anything, Kyle naively believed that carrying the rifle would deter people from messing with him. Most sane people wouldn't actively attack someone with an AR-15 strapped to their body. Joseph Rosenbaum was, however, clearly not sane and had just been released from a mental hospital for a suicide attempt that night. If anything, Rosenbaum pulled some "suicide by cop" type shit with Kyle that night.

Watch the trial. Or just the laughable prosecutor cross-examination of Rittenhouse. This was clear cut self-defense. Let it go.

That bar picture was taken [4 months after he hand been released from jail; after having been in jail for 83 days...for no reason other than for his first lawyer Lin Wood to exploit the case for personal gain.

r57 Don't get to lying on me. The car shop owners had great inconsistencies in their testimonies with what several of the other armed citizens guarding their property testified to regarding their presence there. All in all, a conversation was had wherein Kyle and the others asked the owners if they needed help, the owners said YES, and directed them to their properties (Car Source 2 and 3) that they wanted watched. What, are your playing the "prosecutor semantics game?" No, they didn't initiate the offer and ask, but they damn sure accepted the help and told Kyle and those people where to go and gave them access to the buildings so, at the end of the day, an agreement was made between the owners and those people to watch their shit. Period.

As I said there was mixed testimony about the dealership. However, the armed men were given the keys to the dealership and took pictures with the owners. The sons of the owner used an ex employee to set it up but denied asking people. I think they were worried about legal,liability. I’m not sure you can give people the keys to your store and then say you don’t want them. The night before they had 100 cars destroyed so it makes sense they’d want help.

Also spare me they had INSURANCE argument so arson a OK.The NYT article on Kenosha said many businesses destroyed had no insurance and were mom and pop minority owned. Anyway, Rittenhouse didn’t shoot anyone to protect the dealership.

R51, get better informed about this case.

The business was owned by the family and the prosecutor carefully did not put the owner on the stand who called a former employee and asked for his help in getting some people to guard the business that night. Instead, he put on the father's son who works there and someone else. It was clear the father's son was lying. He actually posed with Kyle and the others - wearing their rifles - and they showed that photo in court. it was a family portrait at the car lot.

So R51 you are either deliberately lying or you are just stupid or naive. The car owners' official answer has to be they didn't ask because they are fearful of getting sued. I don't think any jury would find anyone responsible civilly for the deaths or Grosskreutz's injury. The only defendant might be the city or state for failing to protect the citizens but I'm not sure what liability they have during riots and civil insurrections. Many insurance companies exclude property damage and other liability due to things like civil unrest - check your car insurance. I was shocked when I saw that some decades ago. So I am still unsure where they could be successful suing.

I suggest you watch the testimony of the Car Source former employee who was asked by an owner and given keys to the building and other access so they could gaurd the 2 remaining lots that night.
