Anyone in your country, 17 year olds included, have need for a car? 

Do we outlaw cars because they can be used to maim and kill?

Yes, cars are needed for transport. (17 yo can only drive under supervision here).

Cars are outlawed in on the sidewalk, in malls, on playing fields - ie in places where they are not needed. Pretty simple.

Chainsaws are a tool like a gun, mostly used on farms etc. They are not specifically illegal in the city, but if I took one to a protest, and proceeded to chop someone up with one in self defense, I expect folks would be saying that having the chainsaw there was some of the problem.

Ha ha ha, Americanos and their gun nutz, your gun culture is fucked. 

The fact that a young punk can present himself at a riot, parade around with an illegal assault rifle, shoots three people - (surprise surprise) and can reasonably be expect to be acquitted on grounds

I have to say that I regard anyone with a gun on their hip or slung over their shoulder walking around in public as being a threat to my life. I now include police in this generalization; I used to gi

Correct. Who said he was? But pointing a loaded gun at someone's head AND NOT SHOOTING THEM is not a smart thing to do. ...

FIFY

It wasn't a quick draw duel, biceps-boy lowered his gun apparently deciding not to kill poor little Kyle

More like dropped his gun down because he had been shot.

So if someone has a gun pointed at your head and you have a gun ready to use what do you do? I would have done the same as KR. Waiting to see if biceps-boy would shoot or not is not a good survival plan. The jury agreed.

I am done playing this 20 questions game. It's over. Go home.

Or the folks on flight 93

Bit of a different case. Those people were sincerely fucked if they did nothing and 99.9% likely fucked if they tackled the terrorists.

KR only shot those people making a personal and up-close physical attack on him. The 99.9% in the crowd weren't shot.

If you think the cases are in any way the same - shrug. No common basis for discussion there.

The law of unintended results.

Armed Father-Daughter Duo Protect Anti-Rittenhouse Protesters

Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges last week, after the jury in his trial established that he acted in self-defense when he killed two and wounded one person during the Black Lives Matter protests in the summer of 2020. 

The verdict polarized the American public, with liberals and Black Lives Matter activists claiming the young man got away with homicide due to the color of his skin. 

Protesters upset over the acquittal marched in Kenosha, Wisconsin on Sunday -- taking care of their security was an armed father-daughter duo. 


Armed with AR-15 rifles, father and daughter Erick and Jade Jordan were photographed marching alongside anti-Rittenhouse protesters. 

"We just do security for different groups. We’re doing a favor for them," Erick Jordan told The New York Post. 

Jordan explained that he has been training his daughter to use firearms since she was four, and let her hold a weapon when she turned 14.

It was a discussion about vigilantism.    One of the RWNJs here suggested the 93 passengers must be vigilantes if we consider KR one. I don’t think that’s an appropriate comparison either.

Why do you continue to lie.  Biceps boy fucking admitted under oath that 

1 Kyle did not fire when he had his hands up

2 that when he pointed his gun at Kyle was when he was shot. 
 

It was an incredible cross by the defense lawyer.  The physical reaction by the prosecution when their star witness said “correct” was shock and disbelief.

Thanks for making my point. Bicep-less man had the same right of self-defense as Kyle. They were both entitled to shoot the other. Laws that have that outcome are wrong. Full stop.

Like the rest of your posts, not even close.  KR spoke to bye cep guy, told him he was going to the police, and ran away.  Then bye cep chased after him, pulling his gun.  No self defense.

The lack of any empathy for the dead and maimed in this event is  gobsmacking. Could I ask what appalling crime they were guilty of? because  you're pouring more hate and disrespect on these guys than any normal person would on any innocent victim of a shooting.

All in the cause of defending Rittenhouse.

Play stupid games, get stupid prizes.

Darwin award candidates.

Sorry for your angst but I've nothing but amazement & incredulity for people who think they can attack a person armed with a long gun, and expect to do so without consequences.

I've little time for KR, he shouldn't have been there and he DEFINITELY shouldn't have been carrying a firearm, but just as incitement has never been justification for riot, carrying a firearm isn't justification for physical attack.

And that goes *double* for the second pair. They already saw that KR was prepared to fire, they waded in anyway. One hit KR before getting shot, the other pointed a gun at him before getting shot.

Stupidity has consequences. No tears here.

I'm confused now.

Trump said he'd run INTO a school with an active shooter.  I want to be all manly like that.

I thought we were told to charge while they're reloading.

Maybe jam a sandwich into the action.

Is it now hands off active shooters?  Watch them kill more?

When danger is seconds away, the police are minutes away, or something like that?

Except for the bye cep cross, the lawyering was pretty average on both sides.  The case never should have been brought.  It was textbook self defense.  If, by some miracle, there was a conviction, it would have been set aside either by the judge or the appellate court.  

But we don't make "policy" via criminal trials.

Except he wasn’t an active shooter.  He defended himself from a charging nut job that had threatened to kill him by cutting out his heart earlier.  
He was going directly to the police to turn himself in.  He even told bicep boy personally that he was going to the police.   Bicep boy told him ok.  started to go towards the first shooting.  Then decided he would rather be a hero than a medic. Pulled his gun and charged after someone he knew was going to the police.

Did anyone watch the Tucker interview last night?   This kid is smarter, tougher and more posed  than I expected.  He spent 80+ days in a jail cell with no running water.   Wasn’t able to shower that whole time.   He also said something profound.  He is a supporter of BLM because after his issues with a out of control  prosecutor he said he could understand how someone without his resources could not get justice.

It's a Tucker interview. If you don't believe it's coached and edited down like an episode of Blue Bloods (I really, really dislike that show, but the wife likes it) then you are more naive than we already thought.

Actually he told him he was going to the police right after the first shooting.  Well before bicep boy confronted him the second time. Over a block before he fell to the ground.

He killed a couple dumbasses, cause, well, he was a dumbass in a situation dumbasses find themselves in. He might be (evidence supports it) a white supremacist (his funding/resources and the OK boys) but it doesn't really matter if he is, or isn't.
 

The fact that the law doesn't find anyone responsible for the decisions leading to 2 deaths and an injury is what I care about.

That's absolute horseshit! The video shows otherwise.  Bicep boy draws gun, KR points AR-15 at him, bicep boi backs up and raises hands saying "uncle, you win".  KR lowers muzzle of rifle accepting BB's white flag, BB then lunges forward with gun leveled again at KR and then gets shot for his stupidity.

It may be over, but you continue to lie to the end.  WTF do you mean the court determined that didn't happen?  He fucking admitted it under cross and the video clearly showed he leveled his gun at KR after he raised his hands.

What are you trying to gain by lying?  I think you just can't stand the fact that you might be wrong and you argue to the death.

The Battle For The Bail Money commences... 

 

 https://www.thedailybeast.com/kyle-rittenhouse-rips-lawyers-lin-wood-and-john-pierce-as-they-feud-over-his-dollar2m-bail

Kyle Rittenhouse’s high-profile murder trial came to an end Friday with an acquittal, but the legal fight over the fate of his $2 million bail money is just beginning.

Immediately after the jury in Kenosha, Wisconsin, ruled Rittenhouse not guilty, his defense team filed to have the Illinois teen receive the bail money that was raised on his behalf. But a nonprofit led by controversial defamation lawyer and QAnon conspiracy theorist Lin Wood has also filed a motion seeking the money.

 

 

In an interview with The Daily Beast, Wood argued that his foundation is rightfully owed the money. Wood further claims his group spent $700,000 on attorneys’ fees and other expenses for Rittenhouse, aside from the $2 million bail.

“The bail money has to be returned in its entirety to FightBack,” he said.

In his first post-verdict interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that aired Monday night, Rittenhouse tore into both Wood and another former Rittenhouse attorney, John Pierce, claiming he was “taken advantage of” by both men.

But a nonprofit led by controversial defamation lawyer and QAnon conspiracy theorist Lin Wood has also filed a motion seeking the money.

 

 

In an interview with The Daily Beast, Wood argued that his foundation is rightfully owed the money. Wood further claims his group spent $700,000 on attorneys’ fees and other expenses for Rittenhouse, aside from the $2 million bail.

“The bail money has to be returned in its entirety to FightBack,” he said.

In his first post-verdict interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that aired Monday night, Rittenhouse tore into both Wood and another former Rittenhouse attorney, John Pierce, claiming he was “taken advantage of” by both men.

It should be given back to the person(s) who paid it.

I think the one thing this case clearly illustrates is that Lady Justice really is blind as a fucking bat.

 Loans get repaid. Donations? Whole 'nother ball game.

it’s remarkable how seemingly intelligent people were so brainwashed over this. I saw something where a large percentage of people overseas actually think he shot 3 unarmed black guys.  Unbelievable,  the power of the press on everybody. 

Hmm. A large percentage of Republicans population think Trump won the election, so I’m not finding your (no citation) assertion all that remarkable.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Sponsors Bill to Award Kyle Rittenhouse a Congressional Gold Medal

Source: Newsweek

Georgia GOP Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene sponsored a House bill to award Kyle Rittenhouse a Congressional Gold Medal for "protect(ing) the community of Kenosha, Wisconsin, during a Black Lives Matter (BLM) riot on August 25, 2020." 

Greene introduced the bill on Tuesday. The legislation was then referred to the Committee on Financial Services and the Committee on House Administration to be determined by the Speaker 

Rittenhouse shot three men, killing two and injuring one, during protests in Kenosha following the police shooting of Jacob Blake, an African American. Rittenhouse's legal team argued that their client's actions were in self-defense. 

On Friday, Rittenhouse was cleared of charges that included one count of first-degree reckless homicide, one count of first-degree intentional homicide, one count of attempted first-degree intentional homicide, and two counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety.

Giving a Medal of Freedom to Rush Limbaugh was a very statesmanlike move compared to this.

Think of the looney-tunes bullshit that our next Congress is going to pull, if the RWNJ Trumpublicans get a majority.
