Aaaand….Guilty

So the three assholes who murdered Ahmaud Arbery were found guilty today. 

By, oddly enough (according to the Liberals), a mostly white jury.

Now, while I don’t understand how William Bryan could be convicted of murder when he was about 50 feet away from the actual crime…I think that the rest of the convictions are appropriate. Chased a man down and held him at gunpoint, then a shooting happened. Period. Reason for holding him immaterial. Killed him. Murder.

Wow, twice in a week where the justice system actually prevailed over politics. I am, frankly, surprised.

 

So will all the Liberals who claimed that an mostly white jury would not find justice for a black man against white killers apologize? Will they admit that this isn’t the Deep South of the 1950’s anymore? Will they stop living in the past? (Stop laughing, it could happen)

 

(I expect ZERO riots by whites because of this verdict….unlike other cases in the past with other races in the past) 

Holy fuck can they lie

Following the not guilty verdict Schwab and co-counsel Kimberley Motley issued the following statement:

“Today we grieve for the families of those slain by Kyle Rittenhouse. Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum did not deserve to die that night. For now, we ask for peace from everyone hurting and that the public respect the privacy of the victims and their families. That night in Kenosha, Gaige Grosskreutz, Anthony Huber, and many others acted heroically. They did not seek violence, but to end violence. What we need right now is justice, not more violence. While today’s verdict may mean justice delayed, it will not mean justice denied. We are committed to uncovering the truth of that night and holding those responsible to account.”

I bet their noses are really long….

 

I find it interesting:

The double standards of those folks on the Left who think that Kyle Rittenhouse was a “Vigilante” and had no right to be on the streets but the protesters (“Mostly Peaceful!”) had every right to be there.

That he had no right to defend himself, but after the first shot after being attacked, every single one of his “Victims” did have the right to attack him in the attempt to defend themselves….even as he was running away.

That the protesters (“Mostly Peaceful!” ones) had the right to loot and destroy property and attack people……and, while they weren’t “Part of the Community” their actions in protest (fires, property destruction) were acceptable, but Kyle “Was not a part of the Community” and had no right to help defend the neighborhood.

That putting out the fire was a “Provocative Act” but chasing him and attacking him in anger when he wasn’t a threat was not.

That Kyle would have been better served to not have been there (they are correct) but the protesters DID have the right and reason to be there and were simply innocent bystanders and their presence was acceptable….that they were innocent and their presence did not contribute to the mess. The failure to realize that the protesters would also have been better served to stay home as well….(that is different because Shut Up).

That Kyle, who was attacked (as the video evidence shows) was the cause of the incident, and not the folks who attacked him. That his mere presence was the root cause of the incident, not the riots themselves or the attacks on his person.

 

One wonders how their thought processes work.

 

Overheard in the air:

“Great Lakes Approach, that vector doesn’t work for us”

“Well, if you don’t like the vectors assigned, then perhaps you should leave my airspace and go practice approaches elsewhere”

classy move there

So a guest responded to a request from Hotels.com asking for a review of the hotel at which she was currently staying…

and she reviewed the hotel…giving it three stars out of five.

The hotel manager kicked her out for the bad review. At night. using the police to make sure she left.

Damage control caused the hotel management to later change their story, but that is what they reported to the police when they called to have her tossed out.

One would hope that both Hotels.com and Wyndham, the parent company, will do something about this action.

So does he get his rifle back?

I mean, Not Guilty on all counts seems to be pretty clear. (I, for the record, cannot figure out why it took so long to come to that decision)

He should, in a just world, be able to sue all who conspired to try him and who twisted and manipulated the evidence to try and convict him.

Plus the Media, for portraying him as a monster.

And he should get his rifle back along with the apologies of the court.

 

I do, however, feel sorry for the citizens of Kenosha. I expect riots and fires and property destruction and general mayhem for them for the next few nights. I strongly doubt the rioters protesters have learned their lesson.

Thoughts:

Mr Arbery was just jogging in Georgia when he was confronted and shot by some people who thought they were apprehending a criminal.

Mr Rittenhouse was just walking through a Kenosha Neighborhood when he was attacked….

Yet one person who was attacked is the victim, the other is not.

Why is that?
