Yes we are sooooo morally superior aren't we?Oh no! Far from perfect but I think it's fair to say that we are morally superior to the behaviour depicted in that picture! Would you not agree? Is that behaviour that we could ever accept as suitable for Canada? I'm suggesting it's not and it never will be. And as I said already, not even with a model 94!
It was reckless for sure, he should think long and hard before he posts such things again.Biden did not "state publicly ahead of the trial without evidence Rittenhouse was a white supremacist"
In a campaign video Biden's team in a tweet showed a video of various street scenes including numerous white supremacists and militia groups marching in the streets in Kenosha and Portland which included a brief scene of Rittenhouse when Kenosha was mentioned. The caption to the video was "There’s no other way to put it: the President of the United States refused to disavow white supremacists on the debate stage last night." This spot was put out right after Trump's stupid exclamation "Proud Boys? Stand Back and Stand By." during the debates.
Depending where one lives - those minor aspects are only an issue when someone gets in trouble for larger things.. Interestingly it appears he also testified that he didn't have a driver's license at the time.

A Twitter post is a statement and is public; it was made ahead of the trial and without evidence; the statement and the video together imply Rittenhouse is a white supremacist. It's Joe Biden's Twitter account.
You're closer to the action than we are. I do tend to get a bit off kilter when many Canadians tend to look down their noses at the USA, claiming moral superiority - then promptly book tickets to Disneyworld.The current POTUS has been asleep for years, the odds of him having an actual are unlikely.
Someone probably asked him to hit post and then pushed his hand against the screen...

Around here it is very common for kids to be driving "farm use only" tagged vehicles without a valid DL.
About every three days a child on a U.S. farm dies from an agriculture-related incident. Every day some 38 children are injured on a U.S. farm.
Machinery is involved in 25 percent of youth fatalities on a farm. Motor vehicles, including ATVs, account for 17 percent of youth farm fatalities and 16 percent result from drowning. Vehicles and machinery account for 73 percent of the deaths of working youth on farms.

The father of Anthony Huber has filed a federal civil lawsuit, but not against Rittenhouse. It names the city and county of Kenosha, the sheriff, the acting and former police chiefs, and unnamed officers and deputies. The lawsuit accuses them of racial animus in allowing dozens of armed whites to remain among protesters, leading to conditions that resulted in Huber's death. The suit remains open.
Jacob Blake has filed a federal lawsuit against Rusten Shesky, the officer who shot him, claiming his use of deadly force was excessive, violated Blake's rights against unreasonable seizure, and was done with "malice, willfulness, and reckless indifference" to Blake's rights. The civil case remains ongoing.
Four protesters have sued the city and county of Kenosha. They allege the curfews were selectively enforced against protesters, while officers ignored, or even encouraged, armed men like Rittenhouse. It seeks to be certified as a class action on behalf of all the people cited for curfew violations.
The Huber suit is going to backfire badly. The City is going to point to the actions of Huber as what caused his death, talk about stupid people.The taxpayers of Kenosha may still be on the hook.
That's good to know. I hate seeing taxpayers get stuck with the tab.The Huber suit is going to backfire badly. The City is going to point to the actions of Huber as what caused his death, talk about stupid people.
Jacob Blake case - OMFG - the guy was trying to forcibly take the children from their legal guardian - and he was shot legally by officers as they where stopping him from doing that. This one is a prime example of the MSM and certain people jumping to condemn the actions of LEO's before the facts where known.
Part of the tie goes to the runner aspect here for LE is what came out of Tennessee v. Garner.
- A Police Officer may use deadly force to prevent the escape of a fleeing suspect only if the officer has a good faith belief that the suspect poses a significant threat of death or serious physical injury to the officer or other individuals.
It's generally referred to the Fleeing Felon rule in academies down here. The Blake case was a no contest issue - as he fit the bill and then some for lethal force to stop him.
I don't think that is correct, according to court records he drove himself.
Rittenhouse Testified He Drove Himself to Kenosha Without Weapon
NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio slammed the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse, exhorting his followers, “We can’t let this go”.
The current wording of the overarching law seems clear: “Any person under 18 years of age who possesses or goes armed with a dangerous weapon is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor.” A lead-in paragraph defines dangerous weapon as several things, including “any firearm, loaded or unloaded.”
The subsection that defense attorneys relied upon to seek dismissal reads: “This section applies only to a person under 18 years of age who possesses or is armed with a rifle or a shotgun if the person is in violation of s. 941.28 ...” That section of law isn’t specific to minors, but rather forbids any person from having a short-barreled shotgun or rifle.
