Like, there's literally no way to defend this carry on, and why would anybody even try

The Trump regime openly defends a white supremacist murderer

So much for being pro-"law and order", it's pro-chaos and racist murder

There are no "legitimate questions" to ask about this, the Trump regime is pro-white supremacist terror and has always been so

Nazi comparisons are accurate and pertinent

DHS Memo Told Officials to Make Comments Favorable to Kenosha Shooting Suspect
DHS talking points obtained by NBC News show officials were told to speak sympathetically about Kyle Rittenhouse, the teen charged with killing two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin

Federal law enforcement officials were directed to make public comments sympathetic to Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager charged with fatally shooting two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, according to internal Department of Homeland Security talking points obtained by NBC News.

In preparing Homeland Security officials for questions about Rittenhouse from the media, the document suggests that they note that he "took his rifle to the scene of the rioting to help defend small business owners."

Another set of talking points distributed to Homeland Security officials said the media were incorrectly labeling the group Patriot Prayer as racists after clashes erupted between the group and protesters in Portland, Oregon.
this  trial coming to an end today or tomorrow anyone following the testimony ?

Iíve been in my office for the past 2 weeks and pretty much listened to the entire thing

Iíll be shocked if heís convicted of the most serious charges

Prosecutor screwed up big time

Seen a few headlines and read one or two reports that suggest he'll get off on self-defense, but other than that, no.

The US is fucked in the head when it comes to guns.

Dumb, ignorant kid crossing state lines with an assault rifle to do a bit of vigilanteing... nothing to see here.

He crossed state lines alright but didnít bring the gun with him-the gun was already in WI

He lives 20 minutes away from Kenosha in a town that abuts the border-the fact he crossed into another state is completely irrelevant.

Thatís like pointing out  someone went from Celbridge to Lucan-people do it all the time and probably some do it several times a day

That being said, he should get 20/30 years in jail IMHO. He had no business being there

The problem is that the prosecutor overcharged him and in the process turned it into a self defense case. I just canít see how they can reach an unanimous verdict in this

Well crossing the state line with a weapon is obviously irrelevant then if he didn't in fact bring the weapon across state lines. :)

Like I said, I haven't been paying too much attention.

But my anger would be more towards the parents and adults in his life, letting a stupid kid get into that situation with a weapon like that.

Can't comment much beyond that - it wouldn't surprise me in the least if what he did was legal given US gun laws. If the prosecutor screwed up by overcharging, then obviously Kenosha needs to look at its DA office.

Itís completely ar$e backwards

He wasnít even breaking the law by being in possession of the gun. That got thrown out yesterday due to the length of the barrel

Mother should face jail time - bringing him to a bar to drink beer and hang out with a group of ďProud BoysĒ while flashing white supremacy signs is just a further example of her bad judgement

The bold is a perfect example of parents today, they want to be pals with their kids and not a parent.

Also reminds me of a sign I saw many years ago.....Stupid people shouldn't Breed.

I have been watching the majority of this trial as I'm home due to Covid and the prosecutor did screw this up but the lesser felony charges should have convictions.

If this kid wasn't there no one would have died.

MSNBC following the jurors bus in Kenosha to either photograph the jurors or find out where they live
This is not a news channel itís a propaganda channel and is actively working to try intimidate a jury .

That judgement gives white militias the green light to shoot BLM protesters and claim self defence

That sounds like a parody or piss-take which some ultra-gullible idiots (redundant, I know, when it comes to stuff like QAnon and Stop the Steal!) actually thought could be real!
I read that they congregated on the Grassy Knoll  ;D

No, it doesn't. And you're just making an eejit of yourself.

A good summary here.

If it had been a black man walking up to police to supposedly give himself up holding a automatic rifle, police would have shot him dead. All these gun nuts running around America, not too many of them would join the armed forces. The opposition tends to shoot bck doing tours of Iraq and Afghanistan. What other country in the world can you run round with civilians with guns outside some cartel stronghold in Mexico or 3rd world dictatorship. In America's case you can't beat stupid. What's their motto, Greatest country in the world, only in their tiny little heads.
