Still Self-defense

I don’t care if Rittenhouse tattoos the collected works of Ibram Kendi all over his body and wraps himself in a flag saying “Kamala 2024,” it’s still self-defense. It wasn’t self-defense because I projected my political beliefs on this kid but because it was actually self-defense.

Blind partisanship is idiotic.

      1. I feel sorry for him for many reasons. He will have to live with the knowledge that he killed people (no matter if it was in self-defense or not), plus the general infamy associated with his trial. It is a heavy burden to carry and he is so young. I hope he has some wise adults around him to help him, because this has a potential to not end well for him. He still needs to deal with what has happened and with his role in it.

        1. Amen to all that. It’d be better, IMO, if he just disappeared from the public eye for a few years, let the furor die down and the next big media sensation wipe his name from the public memory. I hope he’s got good family support: when all you know is that his parents are divorced… :/

          1. From what I hear, theirs is a very chaotic, abusive family environment. Kyle turned out surprisingly well in such a family. They all have a history of addiction, domestic violence, just sad miserable things. And he tried to stay out of this kind of trouble.
