It doesn’t escape me that Rittenhouse was found not quilty of murder and mayhem, at a protest over a black man, Jacob Blake, who was shot 7 times in the back because police “assumed” he was going for a gun, in his car.
Rittenhouse and cops who shot Blake, had same excuse.
“I FEARED FOR MY LIFE”
It appears, if you’re white, it’s a license to kill card. The killer of Ahmaud Arbery is using the same defense as I type.
People of color know exactly who this plea resonates with. Racist second amendment enthusiast. In reality the second amendment has nothing to do with criminal gun cases. If I think my life is in danger, I can run someone down, to defend my life. I’m pretty sure second amendment has nothing to do with car ownership.
Yet in post after post, tweet after tweet, people are sighting second amendment in Rittenhouse case.
America is a racist country. It’s been proven over and over again. Because the judical system in America is racist.
CAN IT CHANGE?
Yes, if people vote in objective politicians, judges, and have a police force with objective officers.
It’s the only way America can be a true democracy.
