ACQUITTED
on all counts

Added: Not that my opinion matters, but I think the jurors did a good job, and justice was served. Kyle is a free man tonight. I am happy for him.

I'm surprised. I was expecting a hung jury since they were deliberating so long.

Twitter abounds with people threatening violence toward him. Why do I get the feeling they don’t understand the case, or care to?

Great example of living in the subjective feelings vs. the objective facts. YMMV
Freedom FROM something results in simply placating self, pursuing what our restless mind thinks will make us happy.
Freedom FOR something results in meeting the needs of others, an emptying of self that leads to compassion and the pathway that satisfies the servant heart. Rev. Donald Schaefer

What the media reported before and during the trial is vastly different from what came out at trial. All of the leftists believe he was a white supremacist who sought out protesters to kill.

Glenn Greenwald was on talking about the media in Brazil where he lives and he reported that right up until the day of the verdict it was commonly being reported that the three people who were shot were black. Same thing in some other countries too.

I guess if all you heard was that a white supremacist shot three people during a riot protesting the police shooting of a black person, you would just assume they were all black if nobody told you different.

Crazy. I guess those who wouldn’t find a clue in the names Rosenbaum and Grosskreutz that the victims bullet recipients are probably not people of color, (If they were African American, they would have been named Redtree and BigCross), are the same folks who would not seek out multiple and perhaps international news sources.

I find it really strange that there is so much world-wide interest about "racial justice" trials and tribulations going on in the U.S.A. I remember reading about riots in Australia in response to the Saint George Floyd thing (or were they actually real peaceful protests - I don't remember clearly) but I can't recall any prominent stories in the news about trials in other countries.

Is the U.S.A. really that important or is it just the world-wide reach of propoganda from the American leftist media at play?

Certainly, there have been racial justice protests in the UK and other nations.
Trials: I can’t think of any big ones. Like, the murder of an older Jewish woman by a Muslim in France, who was acquitted because he was under the influence of cannabis at the time. There was a march and a Jewish judge resigned in protest. I only know about it because i’m tuned into that kind of thing when I feel like pulling teeth.

Perhaps most of the international protests have been more about socioeconomic equity for POC.

Wisconsin Newspaper Blasts Kyle Rittenhouse Not Guilty Verdict: He 'Is No Hero'
Did the jury declare him a hero or did they just say he was not guilty of the crimes he was charged with?

Unfortunately not, as far as I'm aware.

But in my opinion, he does deserve a ticker tape parade.

He did more to preserve law and order in this country in 2020 than any other individual. That includes Trump, Judas pence, 50 state governors, fbi, state militias, police, sheriff's, etc. Every single entity with responsibility to preserve and protect people and property totally failed in 2020. Is slightly pudgy teenager did what everyone else failed to do, who's responsibility it was.

I hope he sues the crap out of CNN, MSNBC, Biden, and anybody else who slandered him. The lies form journalists passing as facts have got to stop.

Both. The trial was about your right to defend yourself from the Left's goons. Red states are the only ones pushing back against collectivism/communism. Trying to be optimistic, maybe the people who value freedom will move escape to the US.

CA gov and NY mayor condemn the acquittal. They followed the trial, this isn't ignorance.

I would like to think the trial was about the facts of the case and nothing else. People have accused the judge of bias. Maybe that’s in your subsequent post which I have not yet read.
I think self defense was evident even without the prosecution’s inept bumbling. This is not about a cause or a political slant, but now that the trial’s over, if people have a problem they can work to change the law.

One of my favorite things about this forum is that there aren't 60 pages of Rittenhouse.

Yes, but "Figuring Out Religion" has 173 pages as it appears on the Active Topics screen today. COVID has 212 and counting if you count both the General Discussion and the one about the vaccine. They have mercifully been relegated to the back pages now but I suspect topics on the subject of Donald Trump had even more pages.

But back on topic, could race relations in America get any worse than they are right now? Coming of age during the civil rights movement in the 60's, of which I was a big supporter, it seemed like we were on the right track at the time. Never thought we'd be where we are right now. I mostly blame politicians, the media, and what they called "communist agitators" back in the day. The latter seems like a more apt and accurate description of some of them today than it was back then.

On the other side of the spectrum however, it's all the fault of "white people", the scum of the earth and offscouring of all things.

I suppose they could get worse, because the left actually believes that white people, especially males, are deplorable. They've made that very clear every day for several years.

BTW I watched a Nomad Capitalist video on "where can you move to avoid wokeness?" The answers were basically Eastern Europe, South American, and Muslim countries (he likes Malaysia).

I'm actually amazed at how CNN and MSNBC tolerates the most vile racist anit-white rhetoric. Never seen anything like it before. It doesn't bode well.
