    Why were the pedos trying to intimidate Kyle by attacking him with a skateboard, which is NOT protected by the 1A? They played FAFO and won with someone that was exercising their 2A Right.

    A707 [2600371]

    OK, I'll admit he was in the right when he shot them but that does not explain why he was there in the first place. Having a rifle on him was pretty much an intimidation tool to attempt to restrict the protest and therefore freedom of speech.

    Madgod [1733719]

    It was a protest, and one of the aspects of the protest was a show of support for the second amendment. The intention was not to intimidate. If people felt intimidate, then they didn't understand. However, the person who tried to shoot Rittenhouse, and the person attacking him with a skateboard, both were.

    I wouldn't call him a hero necessarily. But to your statement in a previous comment "your hero killed people", the unfortunate reality is that sometimes people who are considered heroes are considered such exactly because they did kill someone.

    A707 [2600371]

    Since when is carrying a loaded rifle out in public not for intimidation?

    Madgod [1733719]

    I mean it probably wouldn't have needed to be loaded if the other sided wasn't so radical

    A707 [2600371]

    Calling people who oppose racial profiling and the murder of black men at the hands of police officers "radical" is radical in of itself
    Probably because they don't believe those things are actually happening to the extent the opposing side claims they are

    You have a right to your opinion, but the fact remains no law was broken until the pedo attacked with his skaeboard.

    A707 [2600371]

    Did I say any law was broken?
    If you say no law was broken, we agree that justice prevailed.

    I am glad we are on the same page.

    And any rational (instead of radical) individual, would probably look at the situation and admit that while the police officers involved in the shooting of Jacob Blake were at fault, and while there have been other incidents of the same, those incidents are blown up in the media (perhaps rightfully so), and the concept of police brutality, racial profiling, etc, are blown out of proportion, and that in general, police officers aren't racist, and actually do amazing things for their community.

    By your logic, if the pedos hadn't aggressively attacked Kyle, they'd be alive today.

    f**k em. The world is a better place.

    But good to know you wish more diddlers were walking this planet.

    A707 [2600371]

    OK, fair enough.

    But please tell me why your hero was attempting to intimidate people with weapons during a protest, which is their first amendment right.

    SporkMonkey [2065017]

    None of that matters! He was exercising his 2A Right whether you like and appreciate it or not. He did not break any laws, as determined by a very anti-gun liberal law system and was found not guilty.

    You may not like the outcome, but if you believe in the justice system and the Constitution, he was found not guilty. A pedo died and no one worthwhile mourned his death.

    A707 [2600371]

    I didnt insinuate that he broke any laws, just that his presence at the protest was just for intimidation in order to suppress other people's free speech. This man should be no hero to any constitutionalist at all
    What was going on at a Kenosha was far from a protest.

    Wow, aren't you black? and you support rittenhouse?

    lol. You know you can't be part of that group, right? Duke doesn't allow it.


    And if this kid is a "hero" in your eyes, please get a vasectomy. For the sake of everyone. But especially those closest to you.

    Police killings are going up. Minorities are the ones disproportionately affected by police brutality. How are 15% of the us population killed in 60% of police killings?

    It was a protest, and one of the aspects of the protest was a show of support for the second amendment. The intention was not to intimidate. If people felt intimidate, then they didn't understand. However, the person who tried to shoot Rittenhouse, and the person attacking him with a skateboard, both were.

    I wouldn't call him a hero necessarily. But to your statement in a previous comment "your hero killed people", the unfortunate reality is that sometimes people who are considered heroes are considered such exactly because they did kill someone.

    A707 [2600371]

    Since when is carrying a loaded rifle out in public not for intimidation?
    Well it’s not doing anyone any good if it’s unloaded…

    The facts of this case were pretty clear. He was a a protest playing Boy Scout with his first aid kit and crap. He had reason to believe that he could be attacked, because the protests at that time were very violent. This was the height of antifa running around committing all manner of violent felonies in the name of “justice and equality”.


    If I remember correctly the first assailant tried to throw a bag of stuff at him and take his rifle after making some kind of threat about using it on him. Gets shot.


    Second guy hits him with a skateboard. Gets shot.


    Third guy points a gun at him. Gets shot.


    Mob pursued him to the police skirmish line with impugnity.


    I gotta be honest here.. no one seemed intimidated by the presence of this nerd.


    If you want to be mad at someone, be mad at his mom. She’s the one who let her teenager go off and hang out at a hyper violent protest. He probably was carrying the right tools for the job, but a responsible parent would have grounded his ass and not let him travel to another state. Not being near a crime in progress is always better than being equipped to repel the criminals.

    In other news, while it is not illegal, one should not wander blithely down dark alleys in the bad part of town. It’s easier to win the fight you’re not in than the one for which you’ve practiced.

    This "culture" that you talk of will move to the suburbs in a couple of years as it always does and we still will not see those statistics change.

    You have a right to your opinion, but the fact remains no law was broken until the pedo attacked with his skaeboard.

    A707 [2600371]

    Did I say any law was broken?

    SporkMonkey [2065017]

    If you say no law was broken, we agree that justice prevailed.

    I am glad we are on the same page.

    A707 [2600371]

    I never said that justice prevailed. I said that no law was broken. What is lawful and what is just are two different things

    SporkMonkey [2065017]

    Make up your mind.

    A707 [2600371]

    I did make up my mind. In the eyes of the law he did nothing wrong but in my eyes that man went out there to intimidate people and infringe their rights and came back with blood on his hands
    So you're only for constitutional Rights when it's convenient for your POV.

    Got it.

    Probably because they don't believe those things are actually happening to the extent the opposing side claims they are

    A707 [2600371]

    Even so, the videos are pretty provocative and anyone would have a right to go and protest after seeing them

    Madgod [1733719]

    And any rational (instead of radical) individual, would probably look at the situation and admit that while the police officers involved in the shooting of Jacob Blake were at fault, and while there have been other incidents of the same, those incidents are blown up in the media (perhaps rightfully so), and the concept of police brutality, racial profiling, etc, are blown out of proportion, and that in general, police officers aren't racist, and actually do amazing things for their community.

    A707 [2600371]

    Police killings are going up. Minorities are the ones disproportionately affected by police brutality. How are 15% of the us population killed in 60% of police killings?

    Madgod [1733719]

    Probably because of the culture that infests predominantly black lower-class neighborhoods that's talked about in any black film or literature

    A707 [2600371]

    This "culture" that you talk of will move to the suburbs in a couple of years as it always does and we still will not see those statistics change.
    It already has moved to the suburbs and is starting to actually creep over into white neighborhoods as well, if you've been paying attention

    In another 10 years we're going to start seeing a lot more videos emerge of predominantly white gangs within certain city centers

    OK, fair enough.

    But please tell me why your hero was attempting to intimidate people with weapons during a protest, which is their first amendment right.

    SporkMonkey [2065017]

    Why were the pedos trying to intimidate Kyle by attacking him with a skateboard, which is NOT protected by the 1A? They played FAFO and won with someone that was exercising their 2A Right.

    A707 [2600371]

    OK, I'll admit he was in the right when he shot them but that does not explain why he was there in the first place. Having a rifle on him was pretty much an intimidation tool to attempt to restrict the protest and therefore freedom of speech.

    Madgod [1733719]

    It was a protest, and one of the aspects of the protest was a show of support for the second amendment. The intention was not to intimidate. If people felt intimidate, then they didn't understand. However, the person who tried to shoot Rittenhouse, and the person attacking him with a skateboard, both were.

    I wouldn't call him a hero necessarily. But to your statement in a previous comment "your hero killed people", the unfortunate reality is that sometimes people who are considered heroes are considered such exactly because they did kill someone.

    A707 [2600371]

    Since when is carrying a loaded rifle out in public not for intimidation?

    Asbestos [2605613]

    Well it’s not doing anyone any good if it’s unloaded…

    The facts of this case were pretty clear. He was a a protest playing Boy Scout with his first aid kit and crap. He had reason to believe that he could be attacked, because the protests at that time were very violent. This was the height of antifa running around committing all manner of violent felonies in the name of “justice and equality”.


    If I remember correctly the first assailant tried to throw a bag of stuff at him and take his rifle after making some kind of threat about using it on him. Gets shot.


    Second guy hits him with a skateboard. Gets shot.


    Third guy points a gun at him. Gets shot.


    Mob pursued him to the police skirmish line with impugnity.


    I gotta be honest here.. no one seemed intimidated by the presence of this nerd.


    If you want to be mad at someone, be mad at his mom. She’s the one who let her teenager go off and hang out at a hyper violent protest. He probably was carrying the right tools for the job, but a responsible parent would have grounded his ass and not let him travel to another state. Not being near a crime in progress is always better than being equipped to repel the criminals.

    In other news, while it is not illegal, one should not wander blithely down dark alleys in the bad part of town. It’s easier to win the fight you’re not in than the one for which you’ve practiced.
    And you agree that he should not have been there? Especially with a deadly weapon?

    By your logic, if the pedos hadn't aggressively attacked Kyle, they'd be alive today.

    f**k em. The world is a better place.

    But good to know you wish more diddlers were walking this planet.

    A707 [2600371]

    Asbestos [2605613]

    I mean he didn’t point it at anyone talking. He only pointed it at the felons trying to kill him or inflict great bodily injury. So while I do think he was a total milhouse for having it there, I think it is a ridiculous assertion to say he was restricting anyone’s protest.

    A707 [2600371]

    When you have an object capable of killing a man with a single trigger press in your hands at a protest, that is intimidation and infringement on free speech
    You seem easily intimidated.


    A car is an object of the type you describe, and it kills far more than a gun. You’ll wet yourself when you find out about Darrell Brooks at the Waukesha Christmas parade. He was convicted across the board but no one even charged him with violation of anyone’s freedom of speech.


    You’re really reaching with this intimidation thing - particularly since we can see clearly that no one was intimidated.

    None of that matters! He was exercising his 2A Right whether you like and appreciate it or not. He did not break any laws, as determined by a very anti-gun liberal law system and was found not guilty.

    You may not like the outcome, but if you believe in the justice system and the Constitution, he was found not guilty. A pedo died and no one worthwhile mourned his death.

    A707 [2600371]

    I didnt insinuate that he broke any laws, just that his presence at the protest was just for intimidation in order to suppress other people's free speech. This man should be no hero to any constitutionalist at all

    Intricate [1957884]

    What was going on at a Kenosha was far from a protest.

    A707 [2600371]

    Whatever you want to call it, it was people exercising their free speech
    It was a bunch of violent thugs using a career criminal as an excuse for looting, damaging/burning property and injuring people.
