I don’t see how this changes anything. The people chasing him were after he shot the guy in the face. You can’t claim self defense while committing a crime.

He was being chased by the first guy also. Shot him AS he lunged for his gun. Rittenhouse can not be an aggressor (armed or not) when he was trying to escape the first chase.

If he was defending himself from mob action in the first shooting he most certainly was defending himself from another mob action in the subsequent shootings. The video clearly depicts that Rittenhouse was acting to defend himself in both cases. I don't see how you can just blow that off as irrelevant.

That video should be running on a loop on every major news network, instead of the incendiary garbage that they're putting it out each night.

Wait, wait, now I see this point of view. Rittenhouse was actually entrapping the hothead child molestor by running away from him. Just like how Pelosi said she was "set-up" by the hair salon and then demanded an apologee from them. Clearly Rittenhouse was the aggressor.

Then as he is trying to entrap other innocent leftist firestarters by running away from them, he is clearly seen JAYWALKING. He has no claim to use self defense will committing the crime of jaywalking.

What's this even mean?

Correct me if I’m wrong, don’t believe I am, but he, 17, bright a rifle across state limes and was basically there for the “event.”

I’m almost positive that alone screws his defense. That’s before considering he killed someone who “lunged” at him. If he has the weapon illegally he can’t claim self defense from my understanding of the law. He’s also not a police officer. A cop can shoot someone who is trying to take their gun, much harder for a non leo to do so without a legal fight. It’s almost like the scene out of southpark “he’s coming right for us! I don’t think you can legally shoot someone because you have a gun and someone lunges at you.

He did not bring the rifle with him. He got it from a friend close by where this happened.
Tell you what......get me in a heated situation that has me on full tilt and lunge your butt at me. See what happens. Seriously man you really do not get it.
He was being shot at, assailed assaulted and shot at some more. Holy mother of god people.

Yes this really twists me up.

OK, I'll correct you. That was not his rifle, it was given to him in that state on that night.

And for your other argument, multiple child molester hothead can be seen on video yelling at the group trying to stop the destruction. Walking around like an idiot yelling "Shoot me n-word". He was chasing Rittenhouse after that scene, and I'm sure it wasn't to shake his hand. So multiple child molestor is seen chasing and attempting to seize Rittenhouse weapon. So he displayed verbal & physical threats toward Rittenhouse. I think those check off fearing for his life adequately.

You reference a southpark scene where cartoon animals not move and get shot. And you think that closely mirrors this situation?

As for a 17 year old having no right to self defense against an armed mob that is yelling for his death and attacks him? Really? Try to run that one past a jury.

Incorrect as to all aspects.

Never happen. The very first accounts I saw they were reporting it as an active shooter situation. When a person shoots to defend themselves against an armed aggressive person (guy he shot in arm) or another aggressive person physically attacking him (guy with skateboard), or even defending himself against an aggressive person who is attempting to take his weapon (molester as described above) doesn't meet the active shooter description in my opinion especially when he is running away from the threats.

It has become glaringly obvious where some of you good folks get your news and information.

That many do not see the agenda being driven by the corrupted MSM and the scripted :bs: they spoon feed the faithful is disturbing.

Incorrect, this is called Necessity under Indiana law. There is case law both on Carrying without a License and even Serious Violent Felon in Possession of a Firearm.

A case I had last year. My client was accused of Carrying a Handgun Without a License after a successful self-defense shooting.

The jury found that Necessity applied and acquitted him in under 30 minutes.
