Kyle Rittenhouse cleared. Still guilty of being an idiot though.

Idiot how? He wanted to protect a community he cared about and had the restraint to do it mostly legally while gaining fame and notoriety in the process. All things considered, this seems like a great development for him personally.


"He killed a few people by being somewhere he had no good reason to be, and objectively all he did was make things worse.

That's a great development for him!"


Now I’m waiting for the trial against Gaige Grosskruetz for attempted murder


Sounds like you don't understand the verdict, and likely think this is about cheering on "your side"


Agreed. But that’s not illegal.

This is one of those hard situations that show morality and legality are different categories. Rittenhouse isn’t a hero and there’s a moral case for him to be in jail.

But that’s not what the law says.


Yeah. Prosecutors didn’t make the case.

Not surprised, conservatives facilitating right wing terrorism is nothing new


Hopefully the feds charge him for interstate guns travel, but I’m skeptical.

Tell me you know nothing about gun laws without telling me you know nothing about guns laws


I’m torn on it. I think the prosecution was presented terribly (seriously did nobody prep with gauge g. before he got on the stand) and they probably deserved to lose just for presenting a case terribly.

As for self defense, I’m not so sure if it’s fair to claim when you bring an AR15 as a civilian into the public. If the situation were different (say, if he brought it into a school for instance to “protect it” and then shot people who assumed he was an active shooter) i don’t think that’d fly. But what do i know, clearly the jury and judge interpreted Wisconsin law differently.

They were bad, yeah. But they also had to contend with that bonkers judge who severely handicapped their case.


Right because we all made perfect decisions as a 17 yr old

Ok fishbowl family - I need advice. Rising senior 1 here and realizing that I genuinely get no joy out of audit. I’m way too stressed and really do not care about accounting and have made it a life goal to never book a journal entry. I want to take the next year to figure out what my dream job is and go for it. Here’s what I like: I love talking to people, mentoring & teaching, organizing, learning. I literally loved everything in college- I was between majoring in accounting or psychology. 1/X
