Anthony Huber was the hero that tried to apprehend the gunman in #Kenosha, after the gunman shot a BLM protester in the face he ran-up to him with his skateboard to stop him from shooting others. He was shot in the chest by the gunman and died. Rest in power, Anthony Huber.

7. If anyone ever finds

themselves in a situation like that, one where there is an armed person and you are trying to stop them from shooting. Remember that the goal isn't to just knock them down or hit them with something. It's to control the weapon. If you can keep the muzzle facing in a safe direction the person can't shoot you or anyone else.

In the first picture the shooter was on his side and the gun was facing down and away from him while Huber was in good position. His mistake was trying to hit him with the skateboard instead of just diving on the gun.

47. He should have stomped on the gun with both feet as the gun was on the ground...

... maybe he would have crushed the gunman's trigger hand/finger. But if he stood on it the gun would not have left the ground.

This is trDumpie's Murica, he condones this shit when he brought those two lawyers to the RNC who used the guns to defend their mansion from the BLM protesters. These are gun nuts who worship their guns and just can't wait to find a perp they can gun down in a hail of bullets.

Patriotic Muricans exercising their 1st Amendment Rights and making this country a better place with the use of their AR-15.

The asymmetry will be waved away and called assault by the RW and Gundamentalists.

His family and friends are already being doxxed and harassed online.

45. Skateboards are lethal weapons

Regular people donít use them.
And he was violating curfew.
And he stole a pack of chewing gum when he was five.
Maybe if he hadnít dressed like that, hadnít worn that type of clothing...

27. Yes, Rittenhouse was born January 3rd, 2003. He is exactly 2 months to the day too young to have

even voted for Trump this time around, let alone 2016. He was not even yet a teenager yet when Trump took that fateful downward escalator ride in Trump Tower on June 16th, 2015. He is a new, pure distillation of Trumpian times.

48. Smear incoming

OK so the gun lobby already started their smear campaign saying that Anthony was violent cause he had been arrested before for battery, domestic violence, and strangulation. I call bullshit, these are the links they are pushing, its all fake, I don't think that site is official. And if it is, it was probably some bar fight. 2 bar fights.

53. This Is So Similar to...

The Trayvon Martin murder case. George Zimmerman, a self-appointed neighborhood watch cop. STALKED Trayvon Martin. When Martin tried to defend himself, Zimmerman killed him. Zimmerman's defense...SELFdefense. We are seeing this played out again. Rittenhouse will claim these murders were committed in self defense. And how was Trayvon Martin portrayed by the rightwing? As a thug. Same tactic now with Huber. As far as trying to smear Huber on his arrest history. George Zimmerman considered a HERO to some is far more a criminal thug today including TWO incidents of domestic violence.

Hopefully, people will never forget your heroism and care for others, that you stood up for what is right at a crucial and long overdue time.

So sad for you Hannah and others that love you.
