  1. Re: Want to rant about rightwings and conservatives? This is your thread.

    There isn't any evidence that Rosenbaum was a political activist despite being persistently characterized as a "BLM protester" in media reports. I don't know if Ziminski had any political...
  2. Re: Want to rant about rightwings and conservatives? This is your thread.

    The photograph (post 8/25) was set up by his former counsel (presumably to attract donations/support from the far-right). At the time, RH claims he was unaware of who the group was or what the...
  3. Re: Want to rant about rightwings and conservatives? This is your thread.

    The claim that the prosecutor is right because he's the prosecutor is a logical fallacy. It isn't really much of an argument, it's simply an expression of faith. In any case, without a degree of...
  4. Re: Want to rant about rightwings and conservatives? This is your thread.

    It's an admission that the argument is entirely based on an appeal to authority.
  5. Re: Want to rant about rightwings and conservatives? This is your thread.

    Impressive use of anaphora. Some brief points in response:

    (1) Being in legal possession of a firearm (as constitutionally protected under the 2A and state law) is not playing “Rambo”, an act of...
  6. Re: Want to rant about rightwings and conservatives? This is your thread.

    Odd to assert support for the indictments while claiming an ignorance of the relevant evidence and law.
  7. Re: Want to rant about rightwings and conservatives? This is your thread.

    As explained above, the prosecution's rush to indict RH for murder was motivated by exterior political pressure. It is rare for a judge to dismiss an entire case on its lack of evidentiary merits...
  8. Actually, "ghettos" are more likely to be...

    Actually, "ghettos" are more likely to be "overpoliced" compared to other areas. This explains, in part, the racial disparity in arrest and conviction numbers and has been a key point for progs.

  9. Re: Want to rant about rightwings and conservatives? This is your thread.

    The police/investigators were not wrong to examine the case beyond the footage. That doesn't mean that bringing murder indictments was justified. I don't recall a single piece of substantive evidence...
  10. Re: Want to rant about rightwings and conservatives? This is your thread.

    In WI, the prosecution must disprove the self-defense theory beyond a reasonable doubt. Even if we assume a shifted burden, the footage still unambiguously shows Rittenhouse retreating rapidly in the...

    Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    Once again, the context of my comment is being ignored. Mask wearing slowing the rate of transmission in certain communal settings (which, so far as I know, has not been proven by an RCT)* is...
  12. Re: Want to rant about rightwings and conservatives? This is your thread.

    (1) Rittenhouse did not shoot three people in a parking lot.
    (2) Exculpatory video footage (from a variety of angles) plainly shows that each time Rittenhouse fired, he was being actively assailed....
  13. Re: Want to rant about rightwings and conservatives? This is your thread.

    The trial is about proving beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused is guilty of a specific offense/offenses. Bringing charges with no substantive evidence of the accused's guilt (in this case...
  14. Re: Want to rant about rightwings and conservatives? This is your thread.

    There is no reason to expect that a person would be put on trial for murder when the evidence overwhelmingly supports a self-defense claim. The "facts and evidence" also "get weighted and examined"...
  15. Re: Want to rant about rightwings and conservatives? This is your thread.

    An informed opinion based on the facts*.
  16. Re: Want to rant about rightwings and conservatives? This is your thread.

    At no point did the evidence justify murder indictments. They were bought to satiate political activists.

    So far as I recall, the prosecution agreed with the judge that the charge did not apply due to the weapon's specifications.

    Re: Death of George Floyd and Subsequent Riots.

    It also isn't relevant to the more serious charges because Rittenhouse's right to self-defense would not have been negated due a misdemeanor violation.
