    This little army wannabe should serve a lot of time in prison. However I want his accomplices including the local PD who encouraged a 17 year old to strap on a rifle and roam the streets charged as well.

    I likewise hope his parents are outed and publicly shamed as well.

    Looks like it was self-defense. He was attacked by riotors and then he shot them.

    Was that before or after they tried to set him on fire with a molotov?

    Oh so you only have the right to not be assaulted on your property?

    Good thing he had the gun. It was wise to bring it.

    Do open carry protesters not have the right to protest?

    A rule for thee but not for me sort of thing Mussolini?

    If the rioters dont want to get shot, they should probably not go around threatening people.

    That is their fault.

    Undoubtedly.

    Patriots are starting to stand their ground more and more.

    This is only the beginning, its happening more and more around the nation.

    Oh yes he did, quite effectively.

    Rioters need to learn they cannot get away with violence with impunity as they have been. They need to not attack people.

    He's a right wing terrorist interloper inspired by White Supremacy and incited by right wing media propaganda.

    No one cares for the rioters, but this guy should not have been there, and there was no need for him to shoot 3 people, killing 2.

    I agree with much of what you have posted here. The Kenosha police should not be encouraging armed militias. Although, considering the state of affairs in Kenosha and many other Democrat cities, I can see a need for additional enforcement. But that enforcement should be aiding and be under direct control of the police department. Not allowed to freely walk down the street armed with AR-15 with no back up support. Obviously, the militia in question has not command and control of the members.

    It should also be pointed out that this shooter was physically attacked by the protesters. His actions could be considered self-defense, and could be covered under the states stand your ground laws. Remember, this protest was started with a fake narrative. Jacob Blake was fighting with two police when they tasered him. He still managed to get up, walk a around the side of the van ignoring lawful police orders the whole time. This is where the narrative goes off track. The liberals claim that Blake was trying to get into his vehicle, which would be justification for the officers to shoot, but the video clearly shows that Blake reached for something on the floorboard of van, Since the officer did not know what he was reaching for, that was an additional lawful reason for the officers to shoot.

    Back to the Kyle Rittenhouse situation. As I stated, his actions could be considered self-defense, and covered by the state's stand your ground law. What I can not understand is that the video of the shooting showed Rittenhouse walk up to the police officers with his hands raised, basically giving himself up. But the officers did not arrest him. Instead they allowed him to flee across state lines. The officers in the vehicle that Rittenhouse walked up to should be fired for dereliction of duty.

    Those 2 people died for attacking him, that is their fault.

    This kid deserves to walk free.

    Clear case of self defense. As liberal politicians let enable anarchy we will see more of these incidents.

    Keep defending you false allegations, as shamelessly as you wish :)
    I’m running into harm’s way.

    "People are getting injured and our job is to protect this business," Rittenhouse says in the clip. "And my job also is to protect people. If someone is hurt, I’m running into harm’s way. That’s why I have my rifle; I’ve gotta protect myself obviously. But I also have my med kit."

    I’m simply speaking the truth, regardless if you agree with it or not, it remains true.

    He defended himself against a bunch of radical leftists and did so very well. That is their fault.

    Since he’s a blue lives matter supporter it seems like we should be blaming the entire movement the way the right blames black lives matter for the action of every idiot who shows up and causes trouble

    I dont care about your idea of conspiracy people or who that entails.

    What I care about is the fact this kid defended himself (VERY effectively) against a bunch of radical leftist brown shirts. They attacked him, he defended himself.
