I, Jury

2021 November 16
by drdog09

I have been watching pieces of the Rittenhouse trial. It is interesting watching the various players in this drama.

The Press: “Rittenhouse was a gun totting maniac out for blood because he had ties to militia.” Not true by the way on the militia angle.

The Prosecutor: “A teen out to make a name for himself carrying an illegal firearm because he was underage” Not true on the age part and the judge threw that charge out.

The Defense: “The boy was just defending himself.”

There has been an attempt to hinge the outcome of the trial on the charges at hand. Its logical and in the courtroom at large it is probably the proper scope. But in the jury room… there is something much bigger at play.

Presupposing that the members of the jury are impartial and not hand picked for their political views, imagine what is going thru their heads. The events themselves play out like a John Ford film. Out of town desperados shoot up and burn the place. The sheriff is powerless to stop them. A member of the community says “no more of this Sh–.”, and proceeds to track and tak’em down.

That is just about how it played out too. The three perps that engaged Rittenhouse were out of towners all with rap sheets. The police stood by and did nothing other than try and contain the mayhem. Lot of good that did to many of the people of Kenosha. Rittenhouse engaged the principals in this drama and gave a fair accounting of himself in the effort even if there was some luck involved.

So if you are on the jury you have to be asking yourself; do I convict a kid whose only real crime is attempting to defend his hometown when no one else would? (Rittenhouse lived there for some time, his father and grandmother as well.) If Rittenhouse had not intervened how many other businesses and homes would have been destroyed by the mob? Do I really want a life where a mob of crazies can do what they want to anyone, including me, and get away with it?

There is also something bigger than even that drama and why a good chunk of Americans are watching this trial intently. It literally boils down to, do you want law and order, a peaceful life or do you prefer a world where you can not defend yourself and the State will go after you for doing so. Beyond even that idea is this –

The Rittenhouse trial may in fact be the marker that signals the beginning stages of civil war.

Follow up: The defense has filed a motion of ‘mistrial with prejudice’ for the fact that the DA withheld highdef video that contradicts the prosecutions contention of provocation.

    drdog: “The Rittenhouse trial may in fact be the marker that signals the beginning stages of civil war.”

    Yup.

    over half the people in this country have been declared to be the ENEMY, based on their skin color, gender (actual), religion (Christian) etc. And those paying attention know that the RIGHT to self-defense is on trial in Wisconsin.

    Message: don’t go to trial!

    P.s., drdog, I liked the Mickey Spillane reference in the title of the post.

    Had Rittenhouse NOT defended himself he would be DEAD right now…and the criminals who murdered him would be canonized by the media.

    The jury is composed of Kenosha residents. I pray they were OUTRAGED yesterday when the prosecutor declared the people who BURNED THEIR TOWN to have been “heroes”. And then he said the police cars that were pelted with rocks and fire bombs were “not too badly damaged”.

    This SHOULD be a quick Acquital…but the jury KNOWS they will be hounded and victimized. How much courage do they have?

    The media had no problem with people coming from across the country to participate in BLM and Antifa riots (aka mostly peaceful protests). Kyle was less than 25 miles from Kenosha – much closer than Milwaukee or Madison. And his father lives in Kenosha.

    The prosecutor looks like he took gun safety lessons from Alec Baldwin.

    AT MSNBC (and CNN), it’s all about race. Math and science are racissst, proper English is racissst, family is racissst, Republicans are racissst, punctuality is racissst, voter ID is racissst, first names without the letter “q” are racissst and now the trucking industry is racissst.

    https://www.foxnews.com/media/msnbc-targets-trucking-for-being-populated-by-white-male-trump-supporters-who-are-aggressive-on-the-road

    Anyone can become a trucker. Simply attend truck driving school and get your commercial drivers license. Trucking companies will hire you, even if you have purple skin.

    It’s almost unfair to attack Brian Stelter because he is such an easy target – his physical appearance, his voice, etc. But, mostly because he says and does so many stupid things. The latest was taking a photo of a well-stocked milk section in a super market as a sign there’s no transportation crisis. Apparently no one ever told Stelter that milk comes from cows on dairy farms within 100 miles of you and is processed by a dairy within 50 miles of you (unless you are living like Daniel Boone – as JR does).

    Brian, there aren’t a lot of dairy cows on the container ships in the Pacific.

    Just have a decent driving record and you are in. Especially now since indications are 80k truckers have quit the business.

    This will make your day. Mayorkas has been dodging questions all day. He asked “May I ask a question?” She replied, “No, I am asking the questions.” She literally handed Mayorkas his ass.

    Btw I bet being a trucker is better now days w podcasts, youtube etc. If you were doing it 20 years ago you’d be stuck waiting for Art Bell and his paranoid bigfoot theories to come on the air.

    there are reports (via Legal Insurrection) that at least 2 of the jurors (of the that are in the 12 deliberating) are reporting actual THREATS against them…and are afraid to continue.

    naturally the DOJ couldn’t give a DAMN.

    Of course, because the FBI is too busy doing what is mentioned in comment #14. 🙁

    Declare a mistrial with prejudice, then jail the prosecutor for 6 mos for contempt for withholding exculpatory evidence.

    Obama, National Democrats Fail To Deliver Win in Blue City’s Mayoral Race

    Republican Daniel Rickenmann elected mayor of Columbia, S.C., after city’s decades of Dem control
    Major endorsements from former president Barack Obama and Rep. Jim Clyburn (D., S.C.) failed to deliver Democrats a mayoral victory in Columbia, S.C., a city the party has controlled for decades.

    Daniel Rickenmann, a Republican businessman, on Tuesday defeated Democratic attorney Tameika Isaac Devine by 4 points to become Columbia’s next mayor. A slew of prominent national Democrats, including Obama, Clyburn, and Democratic National Committee chairman Jaime Harrison, backed Devine in the race.

    The result shows that Democrats’ plummeting popularity extends even to areas the party has historically dominated. Obama, who in a Monday audio message urged Columbia voters to “make history again by showing up for Tameika Isaac Devine,” won the city’s county by 29 points in 2008 and 33 points in 2012. Clyburn, meanwhile, resides in Columbia and has represented major portions of the city since 1993. The Democrat secured reelection by nearly 38 points in 2020. Just four years ago, Republicans did not challenge Rickenmann’s predecessor, Democratic mayor Stephen Benjamin.

    I have been following this case pretty closely, and the trial has utterly disgusted me. I pray I am wrong, but I am very concerned that the jury will convict to avoid any scrutiny/threat on their private lives vs rule based on the evidence. This is the situation the left salivates over- mob justice. Mistrial would be great, and should have already been called, imo.

    23 – Bingo, that was like everything about this all wrapped up into a 15second clip.
    Sigh…
    Also sigh… since no decision today, idk, but that’s not great sign imho, this should be a no-brainer, fact that it’s not suggest to me at least a few cowards on the jury and incoming hung jury.

    34 – haha funny cause it’s true.
    29 – what should have already happened week ago.

    28 – That should be interesting LOL.
