    I watched all the videos I could find very, very closely, and there are a lot of videos from several different angles.

    Self defense. Clear as day.

    Rittenhouse is being chased by a man who was spotted on an earlier video being an an aggressive, belligerent lunatic. The nut threw a flaming object at Rittenhouse who was fleeing from his attacker at a sprint before he turned and fired.

    The next two were shot as Rittenhouse was on the ground, being attacked by multiple assailants, and retreat clearly wasn't an option.

    Anybody who is willing to take an honest look at the videos will see that Rittenhouse had two options-

    1- self defense via lethal force

    2- suicide by mob beating

    Take yer pick.

    Seems that black lives matter means nobody else does.

    Not at 17 years old. It is legal to own a gun at that age? Maybe it is, I don't know. I know people take their kids deer or dove hunting here with a hunting license, but walking around city streets open-carry and under age?

    Exactly. He had the right to be there but there was no need for him to put himself in that situation.

    He should not have been at the protests/riots at his age.

    I will ask you the same question thatbI asked the guy who claims that the kid was a RW terrorist. Do you have links that show facts to back up your claims.

    Yes how dare he put himself in the position of defending property and his life from the people trying to kill him.

    What was he thinking.

    Probably, a little. Evers sent 250 National Guard. An earlier post stated that the U.S. could send 500 more.

    Democrats act far more fascist than Trump, by a considerable margin. These riots are part of their fascism.

    Trump is far from fascist.

    None of that matters. He shouldn't have to be beaten to death. I don't care that he was there it how old he was. It doesn't matter why he was there.

    You either have the right to defend your life or you don't.

    No, first degree homicide. That doesn't matter. They have to prove it in court.

    Prosecutors over charge all the time.

    This.

    He is allowed to be there, regardless if people think he should have or shouldn’t have, that means NOTHING.

    He is allowed to be there, and be there without being attacked. These 2 idiots attacked him and justifiably he shot them. Their deaths are on them. Their parents should have taught them better than to attack a man with a gun.

    I have the right to defend my property. Driving to another state to defend someone else's property is just plain crazy if you're a thinking adult. If you're an immature kid, it's young and dumb.

    Yeah, it's legal to own or posses a long gun at that age depending on the state.

    You accuse the demonstrators of acting under false narrative. Yet you speculated that Blake deserved to be shot for several reasons. You have come to your opinion which may be as false as you say the reasons the demonstrators acted upon.

    Note I said " ma be".

    If you had a 17 year old boy, would you be congratulating him today for his "bravery and heroism" over putting himself in a very dangerous environment, or would you tell him he made a stupid mistake?
