The Bottom Line is: One does NOT need an AR 15 to render first aid. PERIOD!!!!!

That is my main issue with Rittenhouse -- there simply is no good explanation for this. Also, if one is going to render first aid, where was anything on his body -- such as a shirt with a BIG RED CROSS -- that indicated he was a peaceful person looking to aid the injured. He was pointing a lethal weapon at people -- how in the hell is this a method of rending first aid?????

The above defies logic...unless, of course, one is a Trump-humper.

JMHO

And Rittenhouse had no right to enter that particular zone armed. And he's not even a medic!

That's why the others thought he was a legitimate combatant.

of what should be expected of a medic. What should be considered 'self-defense'. What constitutes a hunting rifle vs an assault rifle. Why a person from a different state can come to Kenosha and say he's there to protect his community - as this wasn't his community let alone state.

The judge might rule some things be kept from the jury in the trial phase - but I would hope that the jury employs some common sense to what they have learned during the trial phase to realize that things have been slanted in favor of KRit and they can read through the BS that they been given.

Same standard apply? Should any of the "protesters" have been armed as well?

This is the one who pointed a gun at Rittenhouse and was shot in the arm.

This fact is all over the trial.

As Grosskreutz also crossed state lines, but unlike Rittenhouse he was in possession of his handgun and expired CCW when doing so.

He did not cross state lines.
Rittenhouse lived in Antioch. He crossed state lines.

Don't give me a geography lesson. Kenosha is my hometown.

Rittenhouse was just a underage loser that thought by carrying a gun he would get a chance to shoot a person.

I've seen a gurney, blood pressure instrument, IV equipment, oxygen mask.

I've never seen assault rifles hanging on the walls of the ambulance.

Have I missed something?

He can't wait to find a situation, rationalize using his shiny pretty weapon, those uppity BLM people (non-people) are bad and here's his perfect chance to shoot (LEGITIMATE!!!!1!!) thugs s/

so he says, "Mommy will you drive me over there? Then, can we stop for McDonald's on the way home?"
"Yes, dear. Don't forget your bullets."
