Justice has been served.
Let's hope the riots are not too severe.

The jury in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse has found him not guilty on all five counts.
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
OK, now the country can get back to fighting over who really won the 2020 presidential election and whether the COVID vaccine mandates should be allowed (-:
so here is the response from prominent Dems, neither of which knew before, during or after the trial what is was about. Biden called the defendant a white supremist and the Gov of Wis tried to tie the case to race also. Now Biden says he believes in the jury system,,,,sure he does. And the gov come out with a crazed statement so dripping with race innundo that he even brings equity and Jacob Blake into thus case.
The ironic thing would be if there are riots.
That’s exactly what started this mess to begin with!
People that think that being upset about something political, usually race related .....justifies them expressing themselves by hurting a bunch of innocent people that had nothing to do with it and that they never met.....and convincing themselves that they are doing it for a civil rights cause.
And other people, that understand the difference between right and wrong........very strongly opposing what’s reallly wrong.
This had zero to do with race.
Just a kid that wanted to stand up for what’s right and unlike most people that sit in the comfort of their homes and bitch about what’s wrong, he had the guts to take a stand.
Sadly, he was not properly trained to be in this situation and made some mistakes in judgment by putting himself in a situation that was beyond what he was prepared for.....but that was the only thing he did wrong.
The ones that got shot also made some bad judgments. When you verbally threaten and physically attack a guy with a gun who is not doing anything to you.........in a volatile rioting situation......what in the heck do expect the outcome will be?
If you go to civil rights riot where there’s violence from your side....should you not expect/assume a good chance of something bad happening to you too?
Or do you go there expecting that your side gets to do all the damage and harm to others with impunity.....zero risks?
I’m not talking vigilantism.
Just common sense. A riot is a very violent unpredictable environment.
Sheet happens that you never thought would happen.....sometimes.....TO YOU!
Especially when you attack guys running away that have a gun.
Mike, you are right but the thing that hasnt been mentioned by the main stream media is the fact this wouldnt have happened in the first place if the Police had been allowed to do their jobs and put down the riots when they first started. Hopefully the people in power in these cities have learned a lesson.
jmk, please read the statement from the gov who refused to send the police or the guard the first time just posted earlier. And then tell me just how he learned anything
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio slammed the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse, exhorting his followers, “We can’t let this go” even as the NYPD was on alert for potential protests.
The lefty mayor was only one of a host of New York’s liberal pols piling on to decry the jury’s decision.
“This verdict is disgusting and it sends a horrible message to this country. Where is the justice in this,” de Blasio tweeted afterthe 18-year-old defendant was cleared of all charges in the deaths of two men and the wounding of a third during racially charged violence in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in 2020.
The Rev. Al Sharpton seethed, “These continue to be dark days for black people killed at the hands of people that believe our lives do not matter.
“This verdict was not only outrageous and dangerous, it was also an obvious signal that encourages and notifies ‘vigilantes’ that they can continue to use violence to assert their power, and more importantly that they are above the criminal justice system when they do,” said Sharpton, head of the National Action Network. "
metmike: Take note of the BRAINS in their butts political leaders that actually inspire this rioting, chaos and even more totally unnecessary destruction all in the name of hate with their forked tongue messages. THEY are are a major cause of it.
Racial justice my arse. Now a white person that shoots other white strangers that he never met is a racist because he can read their minds and know what they are thinking and is shooting them for that........and not really because they were chasing him and trying to kick his butt.
Agree with you jmk about law enforcement. Let the good guys do their jobs and what they are best at.
Risking their lives to keep our communities safe. Even more BLACK people benefit from this by a wide margin because there are many more law abiding black people living in high crime communities that don't deserve a life surrounded by rampant crime and constant threats to their safety and lives.
I'm totally for body cams and accountability and the best training but its retarded to be fighting against a group of people that just want to reduce crime and make your life........yes, even racial justice warriors lives..........safer and better.
If you want to talk about race, cops and crime honestly, please start by addressing the 6 times higher violent crime rate by black men.
The quickest way to reduce the confrontations between black men and cops is not to train cops better(unless the training is to ignore crime-which can't work) it's like dugh, no brainer common sense. Reduce the crimes that black males commit and suddenly, like magic the encounters with that group and cops............goes down exactly in proportion to the drop in the rate of their crimes committed.
It's almost a 1 to 1 correlation.
If you reduce violent crimes committed by blacks by 500.......guess what the reduction in confrontations between cops and blacks will go down by as a result?
I get trying to minimize profiling of innocent blacks but guess what the best way to reduce that is?
Yeah, reducing the very high violent crime rate of blacks. Cops are not dumb. They live on the high crime streets. If purple people committed a 6 times higher crime rate it would be impossible to condition out the critical thinking which would cause anybody with a logical brain to not be aware that every purple person in the high crime communities is much more likely to be a criminal. You can train them to act differently but you can't make them dumb or pretend realities surrounding them don't exist.
Change is needed
Change in the criminal behavior which is causing all of it........the ROOT CAUSE. The DISEASE.
Blaming cops reaction to the disease is looking at a symptom of the disease but letting the disease rage.
Ironically, blaming the symptom for causing the disease.............when we know with certainty........the disease is causing the symptom(s).
Why? I am willing to bet, just like before, many of these rioters are actors sent in from far away with very dark big money backing
Chris Cuomo, last night on CNN spent his show emphatically defending Rittenhouse.
Not sure what got into him (if CNN likely getting sued coming up affected him-probably not)but he took an unusually objective position that defended the side he usually condemns.....based entirely on the WI laws of course.
I thought it was his best show ever, personally with regards telling both sides with a wide open mind....actually defending the side that he usually attacks relentlessly.
You can be certain the episode will come up in the inevitable law suit. and you can be nearly certain that's exactly why the episode went the way it did.
so after the trial, after all the words, th explanations, the facts presented, the witnesses, all of it, did you see what msn just printed 41 minutes ago. The 3 felons who Rittenhouse shot were looking for justice and accountability while trying to murder Rittenhouse. So maddening, you cannot make this kind of crap up.
Watching the "Monday Quarterbacks", the recurring them of "He HAD NO RIGHT TO BE THERE!!" keeps cropping up.
Setting aside the fact that the argument has no bearing on the case from a legal or logical standpoint, are they saying the rioters and looters that chased/attacked Ritternhouse did have a right to be there?
Tucker C did a Rittenhouse interview this evening.
I would be proud to have a kid like this as my son!
On Chris Cuomo's show tonight(CNN) he had Van Jones on who was commenting on the justice system bias against blacks.
I could agree with some points but he was using the Rittenhouse case to make it sound like Kyle got away with murdering people in cold blood because he was white.
The main reason to mention this was because of his one comment.
He said that in the history of this country, going back 400 years there has never been a black man that got away with killing people the way that Rittenhouse did and if this had been a black man, he would be spending the rest of his life in jail.
