    Seems the "protestors" were already roaming the streets armed. Any problem with that?

    Not making mainstream news, there are two or three independent journalists who were there and interviewed the dumb kid.

    Sounds like he was on the side of BLM and also on the side of property owners, trying to protect "both" from violent rioters and people who wanted to destroy property. Stupid, naive 17 year old kid who thought he was going to be some vigilante Superman and make sure the protests were "peaceful". Dumb. Dumb. Dumb.

    There are a lot of clips of the Kenosha riots and a couple of direct interviews with the teen shooter here:

    Also, Andy Ngo, put together a list of Twitter links of other people who captured and posted live video. Real news, live. Not the twisted stuff we get from Fox, CNN or MSNBC who skew facts into fictions to suit their audiences.

    Going there is one thing, going there with a gun is another, and going there and shooting 3 and killing 2 is homocide.

    He may have had a right to carry depending on law but common sense says that he was asking for trouble orvwas planning on causing trouble.

    Going there is fine, going there with a gun is fine, shooting 3 and killing 2 when attacked is justified homicide.

    Sure. He was the one asking for trouble.

    Like when a woman wears a miniskirt and gets raped.

    The mostly peaceful rioters attacking him weren't asking or planning on causing trouble at all.

    All four shootings were totally justified self defense situations.

    Not even stand your ground- gold standard self defense.

    1- The first guy was chasing him and throwing flaming debris at him, and Rittenhouse was in running retreat, and then he turned, and popped his attacker's melon. A head shot that dropped him in his tracks. Fancy shootin', Tex.

    2- The next guy gave him a flying drop kick when he was on the ground, but that dude hit the lucky idiot lottery, and Rittenhouse fired and missed by a hair. That guy gets to go be stupid somewhere else.

    3-The next guy tried to brain Rittenhouse with a skateboard when he was flat on his back, and he nearly succeeded. Then the rocket surgeon tried to grab Rittenhouse's gun, but, like the utter moron he WAS, he grabbed the gun by the barrel, and that just ensured that the gun was pointed straight at him when Rittenhouse pulled the trigger, and then Darwin awarded Sk8er Boi the grand prize.

    4- The last guy was "the paramedic" who ran up to lend medical assistance(yeah, that's what he was doing), and he did the 'hands up, don't shoot' before the snake pulled out his paramedic's gun(they all carry them, right?) but he was too slow on the draw, and Rittenhouse disarmed(pun hilariously intended) him.

    And that was that. Once the direct threats were neutralized or had fled the scene, Rittenhouse continued his retreat, and he went straight the police and attempted to surrender.

    Textbook self defense.

    Oh, and the "paramedic" had a prior felony conviction, so it was illegal for him to be carrying a gun at all.

    Four of them F*!%d around, one of them got lucky, three of them found out.

    When this worm turns they're going to find out how much trouble they're in.

    I agree with @mdrobster on this one. An armed 17-year old should not have been anywhere near the protests/riots, thinking he was acting as some kind of "peacekeeper" or something. He's not an adult yet, but they're likely to put him on trial as an adult. Likely ruined his life, thinking he was some kind of "savior".

    False comparison. If he lived in that town then common sense would be on his side. As I say just because you have the right to do something thatbdoes not mean you should.

    I see you have been watching the fake news media. For your viewing pleasure (and anyone else's):



    ^^^^^ more info here than on the MSM. Self defense in all 3 shootings. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

    Not false at all.

    In fact if you're anywhere near mostly peaceful rioters, you should be carrying a gun.

    Case in point is our thread topic.

    If he hadn't been armed, he'd be dead or in a coma.

    You don't know what is going on and yet you are going to go there. It's a 50/50 that you are wrong. Will you admit that you were wrong if they drop charges?

    Protect property AND render medical assistance. The last part seemed to mean helping protesters who were tear gassed or shot with rubber bullets from police. Who else would need medical assistance except the protesters? (Well....until the stupid child caused people to need it. :rolleyes: )

    There were several armed militia people there supposedly to "protect" the protesters AND property.

    Being charged doesn’t make you guilty.

    He defended himself, VERY effectively and should walk.

    That sounds like victim shaming.

    The guy who got shot in the arm was literally running him down with a pistol in his hand.

    The guy who got shot in the chest was using his skateboard as a weapon, dropped a pistol, and was shot as he reached for it.
