Kyle Rittenhouse, the little wannabe cop turned vigilante who killed two people and seriously injured a third, was acquitted by an overwhelmingly white jury.

I dunno how this doesn't codify the right of anyone* to go out armed, start trouble and then shoot someone and claim self-defense. What a **** up country.

*white people

It’s not surprising…. It probably aligns with the laws too.  If you’re 17 and want to carry around an ar-15 on the streets, you are allowed.  If someone says something, or does something, that makes you feel in the least bit threatened, you are allowed to shoot them with that gun you happen to be holding, as is your right. 

Is it justice?  F*ck no…. It’s about as stupid as it can get in terms of how to govern a country.  Would he have been convicted if he were black and the others where white?  Probably.  Although, I haven’t seen something directly comparable yet. 

As you said….  What a fuckin’ country.
