    In the 70s, the black panthers used to open carry in California. All the orange county Republicans (and most other white people) freaked out. So California, under that commie governor Ronald Reagan, created strict gun control legislation to disarm those uppity colored folk. Maybe liberals and progressives need to be heavily armed in open carry for the next protest. The court cases are on their side. Just claim self defense.

    "Maybe...." No, definitively. I have been in favor of a radical (heavily armed, extremely loud, and highly visible) left movement for quite a while. Passive appeasement helped the Nazis take control. Yes, I associate the current racism and hard right with the Third Reich.

    I'm not sure how to read your post.
    People should forget what Rittenhouse did?
    Reminding him that he killed (murdered) two people is mean and hateful?

    ????

    I don't buy his blubbering "regret."
    IMO the brief bits of post-trial comments from him show he knows he got extremely lucky. Actually given the way the case was prosected, the jury selection, and the actions of the judge, luck might be a small factor.

    basically means that he should probably be looking over his shoulder for the rest of his life.

    I wonder if the jury feared retribution and death threats if they ruled the other way?

    Watching his blubbery Jell-O face wobble as he sobbed was certainly a dissonant moment, laughing and choking vomit down at the same time.
    I wasn't sure how it'd go till I saw how the judge guided the tone and POV to the jury, blatantly.

    So, the outcome is Lil' Shittenhouse is gonna tour around cashing in on being a delusional Don Quixote Jr. murdering folks and telling the tale with pride and paychecks.

    I'd like to see David Hogg punch Shittenhouse in the face till his nose comes out his ass hole.

    Fuck you Justice system.

    The jury didn't find him innocent so much as they refused to find him guilty.

    I wonder which would pay him more, independent speaker fees or being on the NRA payroll?

    I was pleasantly surprised to hear him say he was going to destroy the rifle. At least that one won't be a fetish object for the right. Right next to their used canisters of zyklon b.

    I can think one last thing he could do with that rifle.
    Then somebody else could destroy it.
