Biden today: “feeling angry and concerned” about the verdict in Kenosha

Take the second sentence from https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/statements-releases/2021/11/19/statement-by-president-biden/ :
“I ran on a promise to bring Americans together, because I believe that what unites us is far greater than what divides us.”
Somehow, I think expressing a personal opinion of “feeling angry and concerned” about the conclusion of a judicial process is not how you united Americans. It’s not a Bidenism – it’s a clear statement that the President of the United States doesn’t approve of the decision of the jury.
Here’s the full statement:
While the verdict in Kenosha will leave many Americans feeling angry and concerned, myself included, we must acknowledge that the jury has spoken. I ran on a promise to bring Americans together, because I believe that what unites us is far greater than what divides us. I know that we’re not going to heal our country’s wounds overnight, but I remain steadfast in my commitment to do everything in my power to ensure that every American is treated equally, with fairness and dignity, under the law.
I urge everyone to express their views peacefully, consistent with the rule of law. Violence and destruction of property have no place in our democracy. The White House and Federal authorities have been in contact with Governor Evers’s office to prepare for any outcome in this case, and I have spoken with the Governor this afternoon and offered support and any assistance needed to ensure public safety.

If he was either going to or coming back from a colonoscopy at the time he was asked the question, I’d assume he wasn’t speaking with the clearest mind – even by Joe Biden standards – which admittedly are fairly loose in that respect, as it is.
Even without the medical procedures though, he probably should have refused to comment on it at all. “The Jury Has Spoken” might have been an acceptable, non-political response, had this been a fair & honest trial. But it was anything BUT that, and Joe knows that as well as anybody does. If he doesn’t want to inflame the MAGAtts by commenting on this asshole “judge” and his deliberate rigging of the entire trial, then just fucking say NOTHING at all about it, Joe.
There’s no argument to be made for “bipartisanship” or “two sides” in this trial. A racist psychopath teenager broke at least 666 different laws BEFORE he pulled a trigger. Then he murdered two people and seriously wounded a third. And got drunk with white supremacists in a bar (while underaged) the minute he got out on bail. And then finally has a joke of a trial, conducted by a known Klan fuck incompetent fool of a “judge”.
If you can’t point out that reality, Joe…. just say “no comment”.

I struggle to understand how anyone could approve. Basically it gives a green light to murder and sets precedent for similar cases in the future. Self defense? No. The little punk is a well coached liar and the whole damn trial was a sham.
Frankly, it is worth considering the time and place and what may very well happen in future incidents. If this guy can get away with it, so can others.
Biden is an idiot – but even an idiot who is President has the right to an opinion. Every American has the right to be a complete moron – and during this trial a lot of people took full advantage of that right.
Why the fuck is this a left and right thing?

Not violence and dEsTrUcTiOn oF pRoPeRtY!!!
There is now legal precedent – in two cases! – that it’s fine to go out hunting people on the left (Kyle Rittenhouse), and illegal for those people to defend themselves against that (Michael Reinoehl). That it’s only “violence” when it’s going the other way.
It’s clear whose side the police are on, since they protected Rittenhouse and killed Reinoehl. And it’s clear, as demonstrated here, that the people entrusted to govern are only interested in protecting the money and a veneer of orderly conduct – lay down and be shot without any noise and please don’t bleed on the private sidewalk.

Oh right, after 30+ years we’re still dealing with the same crooks and murderers posing as benevolent politicians here to save us all.
So, another Saturday in (you pick, … any words seem inadequate at this point)
Oh and BTW the new Marketing material is writing itself for upcoming voter turnouts.
FFS, ideocracy is starting to pale by comparison. :/

Did he he mean both angry and concerned or merely concerned as this leaves wiggle room? If the latter is true, he could represent the state of Maine quite well.
Seems to me the people’s right to protest was severely violated and the feds should step in.

Then society would at least get some money out of potential mass murderers.
