I love the judge in this case. He’s proof there are still some good ones left.
@Sparks 1911, Come ahhnn! *Hefty Midwest accent*
100% of the people who did NOT try to kill Kyle were not shot. He must be the worst mass shooter ever.
@Snarfel Burger, “he’s a racist looking to mass shoot minorities!!”
*Shoots only white people including a 5-time child rapist*
*caught on tape putting out fires*
*He provided medical aid to people*
*followed the law regarding even the gun*
The very incarnation of American Hero
If anybody still believes this guy should have a guilty verdict, they’re not watching the trial. Not in it’s entirety, at least.
@nippleswibble, loweredshadw, have you actually watched the trial? Or did I just call you out?
@nippleswibble, not at all. You cannot cobble together 30 seconds of footage to cast Rittenhouse in a negative way.
Yo, I'm absolutely on Kyle's side, but this is fvcking hilarious
@jcmatanui204, it’s messed up, but also hilarious. I guess that means we have a sense of humor!
It's ridiculous he's being tried at all, kid did nothing wrong
@officercoolguy, never apologize for being the smartest person in the room
@Gallchobhair, facts the left don't want you to know.
1.Pee's stored in the balls, so no nut novebers is also nulla urina novembris (bullshat latin for no piss November).
2.Kyle Rittenhouse didn't cross over state lines with the rifle. Prosecution's Witness gave testimony to the stand the dispelled that myth.
3.if we live in a generation of people that are against the death penalty for a 5 time convicted pedo anal rapist. Then they've lost all right to complain about the f@cking pedo degenerates in the Catholic church.
Praise Kyle for having the balls to do what you couldn't, or stfu institutions your not apart of. Cause then it's down to tribalistic f@cking lines of "it's ok when we rape kids."
@That one lurker, you don’t apologize either
@Gallchobhair, it's the basic facts of society!!
PEE IN BALLS!
What's so hard about that?
How can we coexist with a group of people that don't know basic biology?!?
F@cken bladder conspiracy theorists? What next?
Female being defined as an adult human female??
@officercoolguy, He shot and publicly killed people - it’s not going to go away, so if he’s innocent (I’m not commenting on possible outcomes of a trial) be needs this trial so he gets that not-guilty verdict to protect him against things like civil suits.
@That one lurker, the fact the gun didn’t cross state lines doesn’t change the fact that it wasn’t his gun and at best was a straw man purchase thru a friend. Because Kyle couldn’t legally buy the gun himself.
@Thone09, if it was the fact that straw man purchase was illegal, then the prosecution would have pursued it. Since it 100% proven.
So why isn't he being charged with so demonstrably proven?
@That one lurker, sorry had finish work because the charges aren’t against Kyle those charges are the one for carrying the illegal gun. The charges related to purchase are against his friend who gave him the gun.
@Thone09, the charges are "illegally providing a dangerous weapon to a minor" which are twin charges to Kyle "minor in possession of a dangerous weapon". Not a straw purchase. However, Wisconsin law specifically exempts 16 and 17 year olds from that statute for rifles and shotguns only, which he had a rifle. If he is acquited on that charge, his friends charge goes away too, and the judge just ruled the jury will be instructed on the exemptions per the defenses understanding of the law. It's basically a messy update to the main law, that says he must break 2 subsections of the updated law simultaneously, while the prosecutor is charging against the main body of the law that doesn't list anything but "under 18". The prosecutor was arguing that the law says 18 so he needs to be charged, and he was in violation of one of the subsections anyway. The subsections say he was clear since he wasn't in violation of BOTH subsections and the subsection laws say "and" not "or".
Nice one Lebron’s bitch.
The situation is fairly clear and unambiguous, but it’s a bigger story than most know— and about to get bigger. There are many more interested parties in the outcome than one would expect. Why is the Left so worked up about THIS case? [He wasn’t supposed to be there. He wasn’t supposed to stop them.] He did, and unwittingly did more than that. Now they need* a ‘guilty verdict’ or at least a mistrial (w/o p). **SA** will be out in force.
Edit: *clarity enhanced*
Fun edit: A. Cachu, J. Rosenbaum’s replacement? Stay tuned.
Here is the funny for FP: “Ghost pepper challenge.”
I don’t like seeing a teenager cry and I definitely don’t like seeing one go to jail, but what did he think would happen when he brought a large weapon into a crowd of very angry and potentially violent protestors? I hate that he felt like he had to enact vigilante “justice.” I hate that people are dead. I hate all of this.
@dandyhandy, he wasn't a vigilante, he was protecting property and cleaning, he had the weapon for self defense and he used it only in self defense
@dandyhandy, it was his workplace. He was already there. And he’s a kid.
@officercoolguy, pepper spray is self defense. A gun doesn’t just sting- even if you get hit in the leg, that will wreck your whole life. When you pull out a gun, there is an understanding that whatever you do to that person is going to effect them until the day they die. It will effect YOU till the day you die. It’s sh1t for all parties involved and this kid will carry that trauma forever, even if he walks away from this. Also, not his property. Not an officer. By definition, it’s vigilantism.
@dandyhandy, it's not though, he wasn't taking the law into his own hands, he was protecting private property he was asked to watch. And if he didn't have that gun he'd more than likely have been killed or seriously injured, being assaulted with a skate board is deadly force, pepper spray wouldn't have done anything to actually protect him
@officercoolguy, I haven’t heard the “asked to watch” story anywhere. Where did you hear that? Also if he was “asked to watch” property while armed then the person who asked him to do this should be on trial as well. And yes, pepper spray can floor a grown man and leave him down for a good ten minutes. People think it just affects your eyes but that crap makes it hurt to breathe.
Boy he was really trying to get that tear out lol
@accidental down vote, pretty sure he was trying to keep it in.
@werp zerp snickel, yeah because keeping it in would win the case
@werp zerp snickel, I have no clue what is happening
@twopotatoes kids on trial for murder. Armed himself with an ar during the protest and shot and killed two or three people. People literally pointed him out to the cops and the cops let him walk away from the scene. This is his testimony for his case.
@Dalekpenis6927, well shoot...
@Dalekpenis6927, you're leaving out the part where he was assaulted and threatened before that transpired
@Dalekpenis6927, well they all tried killing him first so. The One was even a convicted pedophile and tried throwing a Molotov at him
@GunLovingMerican, I'm on Kyle's side here, but it's untrue to say a molotov was thrown. He threw a bag at him shortly before shots were fired elsewhere, but it was not a molotov. If we're going to stand up for him we should at least be honest
@officercoolguy, did you watch the video? It was a molotov
@GunLovingMerican, and by no means am I calling you a liar, I just think you may have been misinformed on that
@officercoolguy, I watched both video, one showed a flaming bottle explode after it was thrown at him
@GunLovingMerican, I did, I've kept very close eyes on this, it was a bag full of toiletries
@GunLovingMerican, No it was a bag. I've been watching most of the trial livestreams. It was testified that Rosenbaum had a plastic bag and a chain at one point in his possession. Kyle testified that he believed, while being chased by Rosenbaum, the flash of the white bag being swung by Rosenbaum was the chain that he had previously had on him. Kyle stated that, only on viewing video from another angle, it was actually the plastic bag.
@accidental down vote, That was a textbook panic attack.
You've clearly never suffered or seen someone suffer from life-threatening trauma before.
That's was not "crying". Choking on your words, shaking, flushed face, increased respirations, being unable to collect yourself: either he is an academy award actor (not likely, he's an 18 year old kid) or he had a traumatic memory triggered on the stand. Kid's gonna need therapy for years.
He was 17 years old, attacked by a violent psychopath (Rosenbaum was discharged from a mental hospital THAT NIGHT) then chased down and nearly killed after he was forced to shoot his attacker, being forced to shoot two more people in the process one of whom pointed a gun at him.
Then this chucklef*ck of a DA decides to prosecute him where there is CLEAR VIDEO EVIDENCE that he was attacked first. Of course he's gonna have a panic attack on the stand. You would too, jack*ss!
@Dalekpenis6927, You forgot the part where the three people he shot were all attempting to kill him. It's on video.
Good to see CNN has a FunnyPics account
@LookOutASni, not to mention the guy who had the gun regretted not shooting him when he had the chance
@Dalekpenis6927, yeah i feel really bad about the pedophile and wife beater getting shot. I hope they survive
@GunLovingMerican, I usually agree with your points of view, but it was not a Molotov. https://youtu.be/Y1LHichRbE8
@LookOutASni, I didn't realize he wiped it from his mind the last year till this very moment on the stand. I'm sure traumatic experience doesn't come with tears. I'm sure he wasn't making any of the emotion up at all. And hey I might have a panic attack on stand but I wouldn't go to a protest with the intent to kill either. Go back to reddit man I'm here for funny sh!t lol
@accidental down vote, Lol Reddit wants Kyle to swing. Bad example.
Also, people who suffer post-traumatic stress don't walk around staring off into the distance like a scene from The Deer Hunter. They can be functional until they are forced to relive a moment. You know...like delivering a witness testimony!
If Kyle had been sobbing, crying and carrying on for the whole trial you'd call it theatrical. So I don't know what the hell you even want.
@LookOutASni, reddit is a wide community I'm sure he has supporters on there this is called funny pics. And I'm sure he never once had to go over it with his attorney or with anyone in the world to this point huh? All came back on the stand here? if you truly believe it was self defense (in his mind not arguing about the case) why are you not western movie stern on the idea you did nothing wrong? Not saying he did or didn't but if thats what he believes why such a panic?..
@accidental down vote, It's possible to kill somebody justifiably and feel horrible for taking a life. Just ask any combat veteran or police officer how they felt the first time they killed someone.
Second, I've seen panic attacks. That kid must have taken really, really good acting classes to simulate a full body reaction like he did.
You know what crocodile tears looks like? Look up the ridiculous "single tear" that bicep boy shed on the stand.
Also, clearly you haven't been to Reddit recently. Try going to the default subs and expressing support for Kyle. You will not only get reamed out but straight-up banned.
If you're here for "the funny" then stop engaging in convos about controversial subjects and move on. You can't post a hot take and not expect a reaction, bro l.
@officercoolguy, so let me get this straight if you get all close to me and scream at at me I get to kill you nice!
@FAHhQ, No, but if you try to grab my gun after having told me "I'm going to to kill you" I can only assume that you're telling the truth.
Then, I get to shoot you.
@FAHhQ, wow you proved you know nothing about this case, congratulations
@accidental down vote,
as a son of a Vietnam vet.
I don't know you
If you was talking this trash about PTSD.
I'd give you a taste.
F@ckn "Been storing tears for a year" bullsh!t
@That one lurker, idk what you're quoting I never said that and I didn't say anything about ptsd bud think you got the wrong guy. don't get so worked up at a stranger lol but tell you father thank you for his service and I hope your day gets better
@accidental down vote, "I didn't realized he wiped it from his memory the last year till this very moment on the stand. I'm sure traumatic experience doesn't come with tears. I'm sure he wasn't making any of the emotion up at all."
This is the thing I have offense too.
The first statement belittles the humanity of the kid.
Then you use, what I could only assume is sarcasm, to mock people reliving traumatic events.
But why am I trying to exsplain wet to water. If you had a concept of dry, maybe you'd learn how steeped in evil you are?
You're activly rooting for the goverment to abolish the right of self defense. You're working with a terrist organization that is owned by corporate interests. To make a new class of indebted slaves.
And you have the f@cking gall to tell me what to do?
I'll not calm down, until I'm standing on the other side as free men.
So I offer you my other cheek, will you strike it or stand with me?
@That one lurker, you're on another level lol whatever you're smoking I want some. I never said anything related to the way I think the case should go. I'm happy you have something to be so passionate about but at this point it's clear your gonna take whatever I say however you want to take it no matter what. I wish you the best and hope you find what you're looking for. Good luck getting to the other side man.
He deserves to rot in jail.
@cheesechake, for defending himself? You're right, God forbid we allow that in this country
@cheesechake, cool of you to down vote my comment rather than to actually try and defend your statement. That only proves you don't know anything about this case so maybe you shouldn't say anything about it, unless you're actually willing to defend your stance
@cheesechake, nope he's innocent.
@cheesechake, No. He deserves to walk.
He did what he had to do to survive the onslaught of a bloodthirsty mob. Were you in the same situation, you'd do the same thing or you would 100% have died.
Ignore the lying media headlines and watch the unadulterated video of the shooting from beginning to end. If you seriously still believe Kyle is guilty of murder after that, then you're dumber than a bag of hammers OR you're so entrenched in your incorrect beliefs about objective fact that you're too far gone.
@cheesechake, I'd ask if you know how to read the news. But it's more or less watching a 5 minute video.
I wouldn't assume a rock to be that incompetent.
Ugh so much stupidity on both sides of this case
@Atom bomb baby, can you give me an example of stupidity on the defense? Because I haven't seen anything of the sort
@officercoolguy, I guess I should correct myself it’s not so much the case of the self defense, I just think it was stupid what he did, justified or not I don’t think he should have a grabbed his rifle and walked into that mess of stupid angry protesters of course it was going to agitate them into conflict and I think he was hoping it was going to lead to confrontation that being said I don’t think that should lead to murder charges but the situation could have been easily avoided. I think anyways
@officercoolguy, at the same time though who thinks it’s good idea to attack someone holding a semi automatic rifle with a skateboard?!
@officercoolguy, opening up the defendant to cross was pretty dumb. They could've gotten away with it since the witnesses, even the prosecution's witnesses, were enough for a not guilty verdict.
@Atom bomb baby,
*"Both side are dumb!"
*Does not elaborate*
@Atom bomb baby, how else was he supposed to defend that property? With strong words?
@Atom bomb baby, "he shouldn't have been there" is a terrible argument. Hes on video giving people medical aid, putting out fires, and cleaning up graffiti. Kids a fvcking hero. You know who really shouldn't have been there? The people burning sh!t down and hurting people.
@Guy Fawkes, I've only half asses followed this case and from what I've seen he should walk. But the only thing I don't understand is why he was there to defend that property? He doesn't live in Kenosha so it's not really his community. He doesn't know the owner and he wasn't paid to be there. Why did he drive an hour to protect something that's not his?
That's a different story though. Why he was there doesn't matter in the self defense case. He had a means to protect himself and he did is all that really matters for his case.
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, i can understand the question, but why do you need a reason to defend the world from criminal activity? Why were the people who attacked him there? Why were the cops there? Why did the pedophile who attacked him arm himself and show up to the "protest"?
He had more right to be there than the mental health case he shot and the 5 time kid fvcker he shot had to be there so far as im concerned
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, but like i said i can understand that being a question in peoples mind, i just wished it was applied to the other side too
@Atom bomb baby, life isn’t about avoiding conflict. When people are burning down cities around you, your response shouldn’t be “well I can easily avoid that.” And when some assholes assault you for having the temerity to try to help innocent people, I think you’re well within your right to put some holes in them.
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, actually he was an active member of that community, he worked in Kenosha and his father lived there
@Guy Fawkes, pretty sure he was even given a vest from a local police dept.
@Atom bomb baby, yeah! Totally agree. Wouldn’t it have been amazing if the riot didn’t happen at all! Especially since they were rioting over a garbage human being who was attempting to kidnap young children and was armed when he was shot.
Wouldn’t it be amazing if businesses and homes of uninvolved people weren’t endangering by the pedophiles and rapists that Rittenhouse shot or killed? Too bad this is the United States where we pretend senseless, unprovoked violence is fine as long as it’s coming from the socialists.
@Sharts Galore , yeah, true, but his real crime is being white.
@Sharts Galore , he can clean graffiti during the day and its not his f*ckin. Job to do that sh*t...if it were maybe nobody would've died.
@Hot Coffee, it's not white and black. Its right and left. Its becoming a crime to be Republican.
@Kareem Abdul Ackbar, I like that you singled out the least of his works. I didnt notice an over abundance of firefighters and police doing their jobs, and you can bet your sweet a$$ that if it was my community that was burning down, I'd do the same. No one died because kyle was there. They died because THEY TRIED TO MURDER KYLE. Watch the trial. I'd be on your side if it wasnt blatant self defense.
This shouldn't be an unpopular opinion, but if you try to murder someone, you deserve to die.
@Sharts Galore , if you molest 3 young boys you deserve to die too
@Sharts Galore , and if you put yourself in a recklessly dangerous situation like this and someone dies because of you...you're guilty of manslaughter. Cause it's NOT YOUR JOB.
@Kareem Abdul Ackbar, that's such a despicable way to look at this situation. You are victim blaming. It's the same argument for raped women when you say "you should have worn less provocative clothing".
It's a city. It's not like he isnt allowed to be there. And theres a big difference between going to a riot with intent to catch criminals vs what he did, which was with the intent to help the innocent. So again, if you try to murder someone who is literally just there helping people, you deserve to die. Basic self defense, not manslaughter, that's the law.
I bet you just hate batman btw.
@Kareem Abdul Ackbar, I’m glad a violent child rapist died. I wish he killed more.
Being the hero and saving lives whole ending the lives of the evil. He’s what you wish you could be.
@Sharts Galore , lol basic self defense doesn't involve provocation but alright. If he was just there to help don't bring a gun. If it was dangerous enough to need a gun, you already realized you may need to use it and therefore realized the magnitude of the situation. I'm not saying he's guilty of everything but dude shouldn't get off scot free in my opinion.
@Child Slapper, lol cause he knew the guy was a child rapist...right...
I don't feel like this needs to be said, but I want to make sure this idiot doesn't get any ideas: I am NOT 'sad' a child rapist died.
@Kareem Abdul Ackbar, putting out fires and attending to the injured? That’s the right thing. He would’ve been attacked regardless, except he’d be dead in a ditch without that gun. He shouldn’t just get off scot-free. He needs to be rewarded for doing every part like a true gentleman. If any part of what he did makes you uncomfortable, it shows it devoid of love you are as a broken human.
@Child Slapper, right cause you know who I am. just because I disagree with you doesn't make me the devil. in fact I strive to be an advocate in my community. but I don't need to defend myself to some troll.
@Kareem Abdul Ackbar, do you support defund the police? And would you condemn the rioters in BLM that murdered people?
@Kareem Abdul Ackbar, also he didn't provoke them. He ran from them, and they chased him down to kill him.
@Sharts Galore , not defund the police but maybe rework? Just feels like the scope of their jobs has only expanded as time has gone on which is unfair to everyone involved. And the ones that killed people yes. I do believe there are issues in our country regarding race relations but there's better ways to get your point across than rioting (which I don't mean to make a blanket statement as to the protests cause not all of it was rioting). But all that's just my opinion. You're free to disagree.
@Sharts Galore , I see what you're saying. But the fact was that he was open carrying, walking in the street past curfew. In my opinion he instigated the situation by being there when he shouldn't have been and should be culpable for the consequences. I'm not saying he murdered them, but he is responsible for their deaths.
@Kareem Abdul Ackbar, at least your consistent and logical, I can respect that.
@Sharts Galore , as well as you, I have to admit it made me think more about it for sure, thankyou. I miss being able to have a debate without it devolving into 'we'll your a [insert degrading/derogatory word]'.
@Kareem Abdul Ackbar, depending on the carry laws of the state, which i admit i havent even looked into, he could be within his right to carry the way he did. Since nothing(that ive seen) in the trial was brought up about him illegally carrying that weapon i would assume he was within his right. That being laid out, why shouldnt he carry a weapon for self defense in an area where he may or may not(the former being what happened) be attacked by one or more assailants(the latter in this case)? He didnt go there looking for trouble, he just prepared himself for it.
@MMSieBreeze, I just keep coming back to the fact that if he felt he needed a gun for protection why be there. It isn't his job. Plus he was only 17. I also don't know the rules but would be surprised if a 17 year old would be allowed to do that. But who knows haha
@Kareem Abdul Ackbar, something else that should be considered is that the BLM riots were mainly against police. When you have riots over jacob Blake (a man who refused to put down a knife, who went to his ex's house to abduct their children, and who had a restraining order against him) or ma'khia Bryant, (a girl who was shot in the middle of trying to stab another girl). We get to a point where the police cant protect people. And if police cant protect you, and you cant protect yourself, we end up with an administration that promotes crime and victimizes criminals.
@Sharts Galore , I feel like I need a new user name to give political advice lol
