    Default Thoughts on Kyle Rittenhouse Self Defense trial

    One of the reason I was interested in this case is it took place 70 miles from home. He was found not guilty on all charges after killing 2 people and wounding
    another severely.

    I believe that the correct verdict was reached. I aslo believe that if he choosed to sue for libel and defamation (think Nick Sandman) that he will be a very wealthy young man. I also believe that the Assistant District Attorney should be sanctions/charged/whateve the legal action would be for what he did.

    I believe that self defense is a natural right. Nature and her rights do not distinguish an 18th birthday. This case helped affirm 2a rights for those under 18. Furthermore, this case also demonstrates the need and legal ability to self defense beyond the home, including those under 18. I have seen castle doctrine prevail for minors many times, but this is the first case of minors using firearms for self defense beyond the home that I have seen victorious. Persons, regardless of age, should be able to defend themselves and provide for the welfare of their community. This man has done nothing but protect and value his town.

    I would love to buy this man a beer, an extra mag, and a box of ammo, and hand him my national defense service medal.

    The prosecutor...... give me 72 hours with no interruption. He will change his ways.

    The prosecutor's performance reminds me of a jury time in CO. The lawyers on both sides were terrible. I thought each side presented the other's! The prosecutor in that trial did exactly that. Of course, he was doing what the "elected official" wanted, even if he knew he was wrong and tried to skew the prosecution's case. Either way, his performance was terrible!

    I would comment on this but every time I comment on an issue of this type here on the forum it crashes my internet feed to the forum for the rest of the day. As soon as I press the button the screen goes blank.

    Happens almost every time!

    It makes me paranoid, just a little.

    That is just plain weird. On more than one occasion I've been typing on the internet and had it go down. I just ease back and mosey out of the room. I'm not paranoid either but I'm not taking the duct tape off the computer camera lens. No way.

    Can you shoot those in a gun? A solar flare gun might come in handy.

    I'm more concerned about Mark Z. or Jeff B. spying on me than I am the gumment. The gumment doesn't send me thousands of emails...
