This shit's just a shrill paroxysm of social media trolling.
Joe's original post was, but he and Kyle (not Rittenhouse :) ) have since clarified the issue a lot for me. People are rightly enraged at violent knuckeheads on the right, but the more I learn about this the more I think Rittenhouse is being made a scapegoat for those other knuckeheads.

Something similar happened in Chicago, after years of white cops shooting unarmed black people, both in Chicago and nationwide, with the powers that be shrugging and saying shit happens. Jason van Dyke shot a young black man who was armed, who van Dyke's prosecutors conceded from the get-go needed to be arrested, but who might not have needed to be shot at that particular second. Did the CPD simply fire him? Was he convicted of manslaughter? No, convicted of second degree murder, with a first degree charge also on the table. Why even have a manslaughter statute at that point? Anyway, for black people living in fear all their lives, I suppose they were willing to take the guilty verdict they could get, even if it was an awful one.

Back on subject, there's a lot wrong to be found with Kyle Rittenhouse, but (depending on what Wisconsin law says or doesn't say about self defense), I'm not so sure an impartial jury will convict him here.
The case will be interesting. I don't believe he'll be held responsible for killing the bully who was actively chasing him to inflict harm. Whoever fired that shot should also be charged, if they can find out who it was.
The other two victims are trickier. If they were trying to restrain him he's screwed. But that's the billion dollar question. The bicep-less medic is also a felon who shouldn't have owned a gun. Could he be the one who fired the first shot?

This is a true Rube Goldberg level of failure containing so much stupid my faltering brain hurts. From the worst mom in the world, through the keystone cops failure to do their jobs, to the dbag assholes who picked on a weak kid, and who thrusted said kid - an emotionally delayed teen - into a situation he was clearly not prepared to handle.

Tada! An American Tragedy in Ten Shots.


Here's an interesting article about it. Anatomy of a Catastrophe

The kid's life plans have been derailed regardless of outcome. I believe he'll get a pass on the 1st death, but the other charges won't be as easy to dismiss. Plus, the events preceding the first shooting will need to be reviewed to help ascertain responsibility. Every CCW course clearly states to avoid conflict. There's a chance he could have walked away before things escalated.
But the adult bullying and chasing him was one of the dumbest things I've read about.

Talk about your instant karma with a side of schadenfreude.
