Before sending a Kenosha, Wisconsin, jury to deliberate if Kyle Rittenhouse is a murderer, Judge Bruce Schroeder informed Rittenhouse’s hand-picked jury that his fate rests on the “privilege” of self-defense.

We now know what the jury decided.

Neither side disagreed that the 18-year-old intended to shoot Anthony M Huber, Joseph Rosenbaum and Gaige Grosskreutz. They don’t disagree that the Smith & Wesson M&P 15 is a dangerous weapon. However, under Wisconsin’s self-defense statutes, Rittenhouse was allowed to use deadly force, even if he provoked the 25 August attack, if he “reasonably believed” it was necessary to prevent his own death. Even though he traveled to the city and walked into a chaotic scene with a killing machine.

“A belief may be reasonable even though mistaken,” the jury instructions read. “In determining whether the defendant’s beliefs were reasonable, the standard is what a person of ordinate intelligence and prudence would have believed in the defendant’s position.”

Before former Kenosha alderman Kevin Mathewson summoned “patriots willing to take up arms and defend our city from the evil thugs”, no one else had died during the unrest in his city. Before Rittenhouse killed two people and wounded another, no one else had been shot. So, why is it reasonable to believe Rittenhouse needed a killing machine to protect himself against the “evil thugs” who were not shooting and killing people?

But Rittenhouse wasn't mistaken. The thugs said they were going to kill him and chased him to ground and one of them pointed a gun at him.
Seems it was a good thing he had a "killing machine" with him.
The idiots knew he had said gun and yet they were so deeply stupid that they still chased him and tried to do bodily harm to him. Play stupid games.....

Aren't all weapons supposed to be dangerous?

Why do supposed "News"orgs constantly give racists such as these a platform to spread their vile racism?

Because it furthers their agenda.

If white reasoning means that you are innocent until proven guilty, have the right to defend yourself, use the right to defend yourself when attacked, then stand trial and are found to not have done anything wrong. Then yes, I would agree with him. They were not after Mr. Rittenhouse, they were and still are after your right to defend yourself against the militant arm of the Left. As long as the left is dong the rioting, burning, looting, and trying to kill someone no one has the right to protect themselves or their neighbors.

If the most popular President in history, can arm the largest terrorist group in the world, with billions of dollars of military grade weapons, millions of rounds of ammo, rockets, armored vehicles, choppers, and then plans to send them millions of dollars in "humanitarian" aid. And nobody stands up and calls him on it, why shouldn't the left expect to get away with railroading citizens who choose to defend themselves. They are on a roll, and they won't let a little thing like the law get in their way.

The Rittenhouse trial is just a little speed bump, to these fanatics. They will keep adding fuel to the fire, until the next riot, or protest, or what ever their feeble minds can be offended by next.

Let's go Brandon!!!!

From the article; this is a perfect example of what is wrong with the modern media:

Before sending a Kenosha, Wisconsin, jury to deliberate if Kyle Rittenhouse is a murderer, Judge Bruce Schroeder informed Rittenhouse’s hand-picked jury that his fate rests on the “privilege” of self-defense.
They find absolutely no shame in lying, and their audience, by and large, finds absolutely no shame in letting others do their thinking for them.

EVERY jury is "Hand picked"

I ask, do you decide to gut the laws to satifiy people?
The “hand-picking” that the racist “journalist” in the OP is referring to is how Rittenhouse picked the alternates from the deliberating jurors.

It was a somewhat odd, but completely sensible process used in this case. 18 jurors listened to the entire case. After closing arguments, the six alternates were selected by Rittenhouse, himself, drawing numbers out of a bingo tumbler. That process is apparently used sometimes by this judge, and he opted to use it this time.

It was entirely as random as any other alternate-designation process, but the judge decided to let the defendant actually pull the numbers in this case- as he does sometimes.

Of course, a leftist “journalist”, being the liar that they can’t help but be, couldn’t pass on the opportunity to point out to his low-information audience that Rittenhouse “hand picked” his jurors.
