I have to admit that, at this point, I can see why widdle Kyle was found not guilty and can even grudgingly accept it.

But I also think that he should not have been there, should not have had a gun and he should have stuck to 'just helping' like he said he was there to do. I DO wonder if his verdict will encourage more incidents of so called 'self defence' in similar situations, and wonder how messed up court cases are going to get when multiple people start claiming 'self defence' while shooting at one another.

He's still a racist little shit and I feel no sympathy for his being taken for a ride by Trump's people but the outcome of this case is frightening and matters more than poor widdle Kyle.

You were doing well, until "He's still a racist little shit" You have no evidence for that, not that this is a court of law. He was treating protestors. BLM protestors. Why does the left have to label everyone they dislike "racist"? You make the term mean nothing.

Like Levi Strauss & Co. , Best Buy is offering employee counselling over Kyle Rittenhouse’s acquittal. Both companies are now facing boycotts from customers.

Mark Irvin, Best Buy’s chief inclusion, diversity, and talent officer, sent out a memo to those whose “mental health and emotional well-being” may be suffering.

“The verdict in Kyle Rittenhouse’s trial stirs many emotions, and it’s another difficult moment for our nation,” said the letter.

“While these events can be challenging and deeply hurtful, I hope you will take a moment to reflect on the values that unite us as a company and as a nation,” it continued. “We can do better, and we will do better, as each of us as individuals, allies, and human beings press together for better outcomes.”

Irvin’s memo listed some support resources before concluding, “By engaging together and supporting one another in vulnerability, empathy, courage, and grace, we can continue to strengthen our company and community to stand together as one.”

People on social media had a field day, blasting both companies and their response to Rittenhouse’s not-guilty verdict, with some threatening to boycott their stores and cancel orders.

One person tagged Best Buy, writing that the retailer “just lost a long-standing customer in me.” Another pledged to “never, ever buy anything from Best Buy again,” while one poster “cancelled” an order for a MacBook and scheduled work ordered for a stereo.

Another person slammed Levi’s, tweeting, “The race for most woke company marches on, and I can no longer buy 501s, which I have worn for 40+ years. These idiots destroy everything.”

One person added: “If you need counselling because of a verdict that had nothing to do with you, you need counselling for other reasons.”

Rittenhouse fatally shot two white men and wounded a third during Black Lives Matter protests in Kenosha, Wis., in August 2020.

The 18-year-old was cleared of all charges, including first-degree intentional homicide, on Nov. 19. Rittenhouse argued he acted in self-defence and feared for his life when he was chased down the street by an angry group.

Last week, Levi’s sent an email to its U.S. staff, offering sessions with a “racial trauma specialist” to encourage healing.

Why, calling people out for their racism is a bad thing? Sorrynotsorry.

You have no evidence for that,

Yeah, except, there is evidence for it. Unless YOU buy into widdle Kyle is an absolute fucking ignorant baby who has no clue about anything going on in the world... which I do NOT buy. Again, sorrynotsorry.

not that this is a court of law. He was treating protestors.

So? Wait, "treating" them how?

BLM protestors.

So? Again, treating them how?

Why does the left have to label everyone they dislike "racist"?

Ha, no, I'm not calling widdle Kyle a racist because I dislike him. Take that assumption and put it somewhere else, thanks.

You make the term mean nothing.

Kind'a like others throwing out "Commie!" and "Nazi!"

Except, you know, this isn't the same.

Of course, you can show us all how he was being racist, right?

BTW, your opinion is not considered fact.

He was walking up and down by the crowd yelling. "Medical" That was not directed at his compatriots, but at the crowd of protesters.


He treated at least one protester, that had fallen and sprained her ankle. He bound it for her.

This was in the trial.

Nothing like a dose of lead to cure psychotic aggression, if delivered at adequate velocity, of course.
Depends on the size of the lead. Our cannon balls are about 4 lbs or better, don't need much of a drop. Bonus, they have eyelets so you can hook them on a bungee cord and have repetitive strikes.

No, but if you do, you had best be prepared to submit your evidence.
Otherwise, it is defamation of character. And beyond that, morally despicable.

The evidence is not only out there but has been pointed out here already.

And dismissed because of other people's 'beliefs'.

Was/Is he a trained medic? Just curious.

Good that it was in the trial.

Walking down a street calling for Medic isn't 'treating' anyone.

"treated at least one" - ergo, he only 'treated' one person. He bound her foot.

That's only sort of treatment.

I know helping people without being paid is an alien concept to you, but Do try and pay attention. He wasn't calling for a medic. He was announcing that he is a medic.
