Is your claim that Rosenbaum threatened to kill the people trying to defend the town because they were going to feed strangers in the Alps? Or did he threaten to kill any of them that he found alone...

Well, you're right in the sense that Rittenhouse "provoked" the crowd by putting out the fires that they were setting.

But the second part of your claim doesn't make any sense. If Rittenhouse's...

You're ignoring causality and linear time here. ...

You're ignoring causality and linear time here. You seem to be claiming that the group attacked Rittenhouse because he defended himself when they attacked him? What?

Besides which, we know from...

And that is why you fail to convince anyone. Context matters. Or do you honestly believe that an unarmed person has never killed anyone, especially when backed up by three other people, one of them...

Well, luckily we have evidence that shows that. The initial attack was Rosenbaum trying to get Rittenhouse's gun to shoot him with, then when that attack failed, Huber and Freeland followed up with...

Well, again, I ask how far away from your home are you allowed to care about other people? I presume you wouldn't donate to a good cause if it were twenty miles or more from your home?

Also, I...

That's a valid opinion, but I agree with the jury in this case, especially in light of Rosenbaum's explicit and definite threat to kill any of the town's defenders that he caught alone.

That, in...

No, my point is that for the bloodthirsty, inbred, hillbilly hick of progressive fever dreams, he waited a remarkably long time before defending himself. Rittenhouse didn't defend himself until he...

There's apparently still people that don't accept the jury verdict, and the trial's over, so it probably wouldn't be appropriate to continue the discussion in that sub-forum.

True, but irrelevant in this case.





Then maybe you can answer the question that no one else has managed to. If Rittenhouse was looking forward to acting out his fantasies and killing...

His father and his father's family live in Kenosha, and he worked there. He wasn't a stranger.

I know for a lot of foreigners, the whole "he crossed state lines" was a thing, but in the US...
