lans. I had some plans for today’s post. A nice, peaceful post for a Saturday afternoon.
Then Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty of all charges. He killed two men and wounded a third. I needn’t recap the entire event because I’m sure you are aware of it.
What happened next is heartbreaking.
A number of Congressmen are cheering for the verdict. They are offering him internships at the Capitol. Some are offering him jobs in businesses they own.
I went to Facebook. The comments were horrible. There were no complaining comments. They were all pro acquittal. They were congratulating him on defending himself.
Let’s see if I understand this. The jury gave Rittenhouse a license to kill. If he was Black what would have happened, do you think? The jury just made The United States a much more violent place with approved vigilante justice. They also painted a target on Rittenhouse’s back.
They say that empires usually die at 250 years. The US is 246 years old.
Think about that.
