  1. seriously. It hasn't even been 24 hours for me but I'm starting to get antsy.
  2. question for the legal beagles: can charges be modified/changed? that is, can a jury find someone guilty of manslaughter for a trial where first degree murder was the original charge?
  3. can we move the Rittenhouse-talk to the other thread please?
  4. so here's something that maybe could go in the PSF but it's topical to this discussion. My FIL is in Florida. He got his vaccine thru a church. Apparently some mega church in the area was able to purchase shots for it's congregation so worship in person could happen sooner. Not enough church members signed up for the shot so he was able to get his from them, even though he doesn't attend that particular church. Because this is not the PSF I will hold my comments about churches getting vaccines or people not taking advantage of available shots.
  5. I've been told this is available, especially for the mass vaccination events like I just had. I've also been told that you can put your name on wait lists for local providers. If people who had an appointment don't show up, they have excess vaccine that can't go back into the fridge so it has to be used. If your name is on the list, they will give you a call or text and you have like 15 minutes to get in.
  6. My wife and I got the Pfizer shot today. Mass vaccination event at Bank of America Stadium. Took about an hour (not counting parking). Looking forward to being done with this.
  7. thanks. Legally speaking, if the jury should overlook Rittenhouse violating curfew and brandishing a weapon he isn't legally mature enough to carry, then my concerns are moot and it all comes down to self defense, and I would tend to agree that Rittenhouse acted in self-defense.
  8. seems to me you have assigned Rittenhouse the role of victim. I get why you say that, but Rosenbaum is the one who is dead. Are you not explicitly blaming the victim yourself?
  9. Nope. He shouldn't be charged as an adult. I'm generally against minors being charged as adults in all cases. I think illegal possession of a gun should have something to do with the case when two people are dead. It has to be relevant.
  10. interesting stuff Woz (Zow), thanks. Does it matter that Rittenhouse was not local to Kenosha, WI? Or, that it technically is illegal for a 17 yr old to open carry? I am fine with the argument for self defense. What I'm not fine with is him acting as a vigilante - a kid who isn't old enough to vote, buy a pack of cigarettes or join the Army is roaming the streets to LARP as a law enforcement officer. He was not there to defend his home or his families business. And again, he is just a kid and like all other teenagers, he doesn't have impulse control of an adult.
  11. Cliffs notes on content of the interview?
  12. "Your honor, the level of maturity and responsibility was so lacking on Jan 6 I request my client be tried as a minor."
  13. If the house was unlocked, is it really breaking and entering?
  14. Does that make it ok? I mean, if you are trying to argue that it's OK for people to break laws because it's easy to do so, go for it. But don't try to tell me you support law and order.
  15. Seriously? The capital was (poorly) guarded by a police force, over-come by the mob. You don't get to be a part of the mob that crossed the barricade, or entered via a smashed window and pretend you are a tourist. This is some amazing gymnastics on display here, especially just hours from arguing minutiae of other legalities. So very odd.
  16. I certainly hope you aren't arguing Rittenhouse was there for "hunting purposes".
  17. Being inside the capitol on Jan 6 is a crime. Full stop. No one purchased a ticket, stood line line with other smelly tourists or we're there on ****official business***. This was not a tour group that took a wrong turn. They were to disrupt congress, no much how badly they protest otherwise.
  18. The left loves this guy? Imma call BS again.
  19. so you are going with the two wrongs makes a right defense? I don't let my kids get away with that. also, literally no one says the left is blameless. No one ever claimed riots were legal. Not anyone serious, anyhow.
  20. this is precisely why we can't have random people running around LARPing as policeman. intentions are fine and dandy but a 17 year old kid hasn't had the (admittedly minimal) training police have, nor has his brain sufficiently developed to accurately judge risk/reward or fight/flight scenarios. There is a reason kids aren't adults.
  21. while he was there, uninvited, and armed with a gun he legally wasn't allowed to carry (because he was 17). Rittenhouse was NOT there as a member of law enforcement and he wasn't hired as private security. He was there on his own accord. That, my friend, is vigilantism....or, is this one of those laws that conservatives prefer to ignore?
  22. without a doubt he had full intent to interfere with congress from certifying the election as they are obligated to do under Amendment 12 of the US constitution. This wasn't a simple B&E, and this is nothing like busting the windows of your local Auto Zone in the middle of a race riot.
