      …and their actions contributed to two people being shot and killed.  The Rational National breaks it down:

      Hi gl,

      Sad to say, this will continue until the system of institutionalized hate and racism is dismantled and shredded.

      When I was born, parts of Texas still had segregated public facilities and black people sat at the back of the bus.

      Within my living memory, as a young boy, my parents had to explain what it all meant.

      Little has changed in American society since other than veneer and patina.

      Ultimately, this will only resolve itself with the dissolution of the US and splintering into smaller countries where racists can be racists and the rest of us can work to get along.

      It proves some of them are capable of waking up, thinking, and realizing how they are being used. Yeah, I know, it’s just the one guy, but that’s a start. At least he figured out the cops were using him and people like him and didn’t approve. Otherwise, he never would have talked to the protesters after the shooting like that.

      It’s one ray of hope in an otherwise very dark tale.

      The shooter is seventeen and was in possession of a firearm.

      In both Il and Wi guns cannot be owned by persons under 18. Someone other than him, owned that gun. Someone other than him, bought the ammo. Who’s gun is that? What are the circumstances leading to him being able to carrying it across state lines and later use it?

      Either he stole a firearm and ammo to use it in multiple felonies’ or someone feloniously supplied him with the gun and ammo. Were any of the militia members aware he was legally a child? For that matter, was he specifically invited or encouraged to attend?

      He was in captured in video in very close proximity to police officers carrying the rifle openly. They did not challenge him. My question; if the same officers saw the same young man in a gas station holding a pack of cigarettes, do you think he would not be confronted?

      Lottsa questions.

      As more of this story comes out, the more it seems the police fucked up big time.

      60 Minutes could do 4.3 hours on this police department and their actions, I dare them to do it.

        They’d say the kid did everything himself. They say it was his idea. He stole the weapon. No mention of the police watching the shooting and letting the kid walk through their lines.

      I despise the whole schtick with every fiber of my being.

      The Cabela’s shopping, camouflage pants/MAGA hat wearing, FOX induced angry face, “Don’t tread on me” flag waiving, beer bellied, uneducated, gun toting pieces of shit. Every last one of them. Angry when their man is in charge. Even a Trump ruled world isn’t good enough for them. That should tell you all you need to know. Always angry because FOX raises their ire to a non stop fever pitch 24/7. Very Hitler like.

      I hate them. Absolutely

        hate

      them. To the point to where I will not associate or talk or pretend to be friends. You try to talk up Trump to me? Fuck you. Get out of my life. You are not….cannot be my friend.

      I thought I was past being shocked… but, no.


      @mrmickeysmom
      :  thanks for tweeting it.  I did too, and also shared it on FB, going against my usual policy of avoiding heavy political topics, since I use FB mainly to stay in contact with friends and family.  But this is too important and if people don’t like seeing it they can… unfriend me if they are so inclined.


      @thouartthat
      :  I grew up in the northwest so did not see segregation first hand.  Hell I think I didn’t meet a black person until I was 12 or so.  But we knew what side we were on during the civil rights movement.  It is utterly shocking how little has changed.  I think the disintegration of the US is well underway, and it’s pretty scary what is happening right now.


      @retiredliberal
      :  well the young man has been charged with 1st degree murder.  Hopefully they will try him as an adult.  If not, I’m pretty sure there will be hell to pay.  Oh who am I kidding, there is already hell to pay, and nothing appears to be getting better.

      Brace yourselves, folks.  This ain’t looking good.  Our only hope to avoid a civil war at this point, may be the onrushing reality of climate change… and that is not a terribly hopeful prospect, either.

      Let me put that a bit differently; when the wrongful death attorneys get done with Kenosha, they won’t have any money to pay for police (or anything else).   A particularly effective attorney would also find a line of argument to tap the police pension fund using the RICO statutes.

      Corporate America consists of totalitarian entities laser-focused on short-term greed.
