Editor: In regards to the Rittenhouse not guilty verdict: First off, I believe that he was at the scene of the protest hoping to use his automatic weapon. Why else does one carry such a firearm but to shoot others. If you are just worried about your own safety, why not carry a pistol? More accurate. Easier to conceal and use. But like all those praising the verdict, offering him jobs, money and fame, I did not watch every minute of the trial. I did not pore over the evidence or watch the videos several times. I have not read the judge’s instructions on what constitutes self defense.

What I do know is that juries usually rise to the occasion and do the right thing. Mr. Rittenhouse’s 15 minutes of fame will go on for several more days and then he will be forgotten. But if he is smart he will bank the cash he is going to make off of this and use it to build himself a future.

Come man bigblob you wouldn't know the truth it hit you in the face. The truth is only what your small mind tells you it is. You sit behind your computer everyday to let off steam but you should really be looking closely at your beloved leader, you know him as the kid-sniffing rapist career do nothing swamp creature known as China Biden. The guy is a total disaster and is sinking faster then the Titanic. You should really go to DC and take over for the circle back girl as I think she is wearing down from trying to cover for the fake president. Never in the history of this country has there been such a concerted effort to shield the president from the people and the press. His presidency is a sham with other people in the shadows calling the shots. Word has it that the half-breed Kenyon refugee is in his third term and Biden is just a puppet standing in for him. Not to far fetched is it.

Not others, just one person. Seriously!

Don’t you like Brandon?

"The Korean community of Los Angeles did not simply sit by and allow their neighborhood and businesses to be destroyed by rioters without lifting a finger. On the contrary, the images of Korean shopkeepers and their families defending themselves from the rooftops of their buildings soon became one of the most iconic images of the riots." Friends also came to help during the Rodney King riots much like Kyle Rittenhouse did in Wisconsin.

Kyle was there to protect his friend's and family's property. The police were told not to do so. You comprehendo, Jim? Korean-American business owners did the same as Kyle during the Rodney King riots. Good thing he had that weapon because the degenerate "peaceful protesters" outnumbered him. You comprehendo, Jim?

BigBob

simple - WOW! We had no idea you were there and actually interviewed the little killer to know so well what he was up to!

Already they start re-writing history to fit their own liking.

False equivalence: "Korean-American Business owners", was KR a business owner? Was he hired by any business owner? No, of course not. Neither was Travis McMicheal. But both were vigilantes. And the conservative-right will celebrate them and paint the large mass of peaceful demonstrators as looters and arsonists even though they don't know who leveraged the chaos. Ya, we've seen right-wing anarchists infiltrate peaceful demonstrations before.

Too old for this

The McMichael murder is nothing like the Rittenhouse case. There is no defending the McMichaels and their neighbor. However, Rittenhouse, and anyone else in this country, should be allowed to defend themselves from attack. Not once did I see video of him threatening anyone with that rifle.

Where is your disgust with the guy who had his arm nearly detached from his body? He testified that he pointed his handgun at Rittenhouse's face, but was shot before he could kill the kid. That guy was a convicted felon who violated the law by having a gun and, like the other "victims" came to the protest with the intent of starting trouble.

We have seen violence in protests across the country, but most have been instigated by BLM, Antifa, and others who have the backing of our own esteemed VP and the Democratic Party. Show me where the Republican Party has set up fundraisers to post bail for their supporters who go off the rails.

Let me get this straight, there was a peaceful demonstration going on, OH just like all the peaceful demonstrations that caused billions in damage, looting of stores and in some cases death to innocent bystanders. Give me a break.

simon1dog

RO - You're evidently not up to speed here. Korean-American business owners had family and friends helping protect their property. Kyle was doing the same. Brush up on your history before ignorantly replying.

RobertsonO

...

Neither KR nor TM had any vested interest in the events. They are vigilantes with guns, period. Police only ask that if we see something, say something. Eventually, laws will be written to curb vigilante behavior brought on society by people who suffer 'gun fever'.

When you own a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

[thumbup] RobertsonO The problem with the "right" is they think the 2nd Amendment

gives them the right to take the law into their own hands... Of course they think the 1st Amendment gives them the right to rewrite history... and than there's the "last guy who made them feel they were more American than the protestors, so now they feel really empowered. All combined, our society is broken.
