1. Congresspeople need to pass some laws and stop talking shooting after shooting.

7. easier to pass State laws.

In NY, KR goes to prison based on the law of the State.

Federal enforcement is dubious at best.

2. I certainly prefer Nadler's take

to Biden's 'the jury has spoken'.

12. Same...

...even if I'm being accused of being a dangerous radical who wants to stir up trouble by some here for saying it.

And, sadly, I don't see how the DoJ can credibly take action after the President has said he stands behind the verdict and we have to accept it.

3. armed persons crossing state lines

 

Since KR was not an armed person who crossed state lines.....this statement lacks considerable gravitas.

We DO need changes to the law. This is just insufferable, though. Perhaps Nadler could champion change to our gun laws and the loopholes that allowed that AR rifle to be legally carried by KR.

8. Are you saying he's in error?

He is, of course, on that point. Goes to credibility.

Sometimes it's playing to the base (take that how you will), sometimes it's just not paying attention and being too certain to engage in any self-doubt. Power requires the first and produces the second.

9. Yes, that he's in error

 

I expect better of our leaders, tbh. I want a focused convo on WHY he got off, what is wrong with laws that allow a 17 year old to carry an AR 15. And how to change them.

we might not achieve reform - but I want to be clear about the direction we need to be going in.

10. The people who keep repeating falsehoods

Will never accept the facts of the case, itís already cemented in their minds. Even if the DOJ says they canít prove he broke any federal laws, they wonít accept that either.

11. The police encouraged Rittenhouse and there should be a civil rights investigation

The local police both encourage Rittenhouse and steered protestors towards is group of assholes. This could be an interesting civil rights case

14. Kyle Rittenhouse Could Face Federal Charges As Rep. Nadler Calls For DOJ Review

I hope that the DOJ brings some civil rights charges against this asshole



Judiciary Committee Chair Rep. Jerry Nadler is calling on the DOJ to review the Kyle Rittenhouse shootings for potential federal charges.



There are a wide variety of federal charges that Kyle Rittenhouse could potentially face that include civil rights violations and potential hate crimes. The Rittenhouse trial was so tainted by the judgeís behavior that the case deserves a federal review.

The idea that a person can show up at a protest with a loaded assault weapon, killing two people, and then claim self-defense flies in the face of logic and common sense.

15. "a wide variety of federal charges" including "civil rights charges"

Another person claiming that there are multiple ways that DOJ could prosecute Rittenhouse without citing to any specific law.
And, the relevant civil rights laws, such as 18 USC 242, are quite clear: they only apply where the injured party was singled out based on their race, gender, religion, etc.

The author, Jason Easley, isn't a lawyer so I urge folks to take his unsubstantiated assertions with a significant grain of salt.

16. Yeah, it's never gonna happen

If they tried, he's only be acquitted again. Not liking the results and challenging them makes us look like a certain someone.
