Our nation is too often held hostage by Confederate residue and Dixietrash.

Sorry, normal Southerners. I feel very bad for you.

Edit for spelling error.

Some Ethan Crumbley murder case questions.

When a teacher reported the notes and drawing that caused the school to bring in his parents for a meeting, why weren't the police called, even before the parents were called?
Why weren't the police already there when the parents arrived?
Why were the parents given the option to let him stay at school that day?

Just as the right is now using PeeWee Rittenhouse as a prop, the Left

can use him and his case as more evidence for the need for common sense gun legislation.

Also, never stop referring to him as a murderer. Regardless of what the jury decided,
and regardless of any "self defense" law, he murdered two people, and tried to murder a third.

I've seen very little of the Rittenhouse trial. I have a question.

During the trial, has the prosecution noted that after Rittenhouse committed his first murder (Rosenbaum), the people he claimed were "attacking him" were justified in their actions as they were trying to subdue a violent criminal?

How can the US government create anti-domestic terror laws that cannot be weakened

by the US Constitution?

The January 6th terrorists, so far, are being treated as petty criminals.
I get it. "The Constitution".
However, I don't see how those who carry out coup attempts, and other anti-US violence, are deserving of being protected by a government they tried to destroy.

So, how can this be done? Can an act of Congress do it, or would it require a Constitutional Amendment?
