2. The article is absolutely the truth

Worth the time to read it, it's exactly on target.

Rittenhouse, who ideologically is a white supremacist racist by his own words and admission, came at the call of another white supremacist racist to a city where Black Lives Matter was protesting the murder of an unarmed black man shot in the back 7 times bya police officer. The protestors Rittenhouse shot were white but in his mind on "the wrong side."

This is exactly what the gun rights nutjobs want, the right to kill without accountability. That's the crux of the NRA's whole existence.

If you look at the Wisconsin statute, that's where the problem lies. Yeah, the judge gathered himself a reputation, the prosecution did too, but their hands were tied because they followed the way the law was written. They couldn't do much else.
