I did not follow this case as much as the Rittenhouse trial, but it appears to me this jury also got it right.

As they should have been.
Totally agree. Open and shut case against them for murder. Got what they deserved.

Rittenhouse jury also got it right.

As hard as the media has been trying to shape the narratives, it seems like justice has won out in both.
FIRE MESSINGHAM.

Sad that those three guys would never have been charged if the video that the police and DA had in their possession did not get leaked to the press.

Took two months later and the 4th DA assigned to the case and investigation by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to get them charged.

Had to be tried by Cobb County DA's as the local DA's all had to recuse themselves. Quentin County DA is under indictment for burying this case. One look at the video showed these guys may have committed a murder and the case needed investigation. The DA buried it instead.

The white supremist hand sign? The ok sign? If that is what you are talking about, I can't help but think you are duped into thinking that a hand sign that shows approval, and likely used by MILLIONS of people of all colors, is a white supremist hand sign.

I was flipping through channels and saw the interview with Tucker Carlson last night. I didn't like it. The kid came across as smug at times--my impression. And he is no hero.
I expect Rittenhouse was duped into flashing that hand sign and didn't know it had been co opted. Using it in a bar with a bunch of Proud Boys was not signaling everything is OK even if Rittenhouse didn't know and was duped into doing it.

FYI
1. The “OK” hand gesture has been hijacked by white supremacists and is now a hate symbol, according to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). Earlier this week, the ADL revealed that alt-right groups are using the “OK” gesture to denote “white power.”

2. Australian white supremacist Brenton Tarrant was photographed using the “OK” symbol in the courtroom. Tarrant is accused of killing 51 people at two Christchurch, New Zealand mosques on March 15, 2019. He has pleaded not guilty.

“We believe law enforcement and the public needs to be fully informed about the meaning of these images, which can serve as a first warning sign to the presence of haters in a community or school,” Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the ADL said.

3, A Chicago Cubs fan angered the team when he made an inverted “OK” signal behind the back of African-American sports reporter Doug Glanville. Glanville was live on air covering a Chicago Cubs-Miami Marlins game when a man sitting behind him in the stands flashed the hand sign. The incident resulted in the fan being banned for life from Wrigley Field.

“The incident last night is truly disgusting,” Chicago Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein told the media. “It gave me shivers to watch that, to see that take place at Wrigley Field.”
White supremists all around us, right? Somehow I don't think so. Kind of a ridiculous narrative from the left, doncha think?

You did all that work without considering context. Remember? The OK sign is appropriate in the right context.

You need to get a hold of Rittenhouse and tell him using that sign around a bunch of Proud boys in a picture set up by his crazy lawyer was OK. Because he doesn't think it was.

Again:
Banfield reported that “Rittenhouse said he didn’t know making the ‘OK’ sign with his hand had become a white supremacist signal, and he didn’t know he was in a bar full of Proud Boys members Jan. 5.”

Rittenhouse told NewsNation that he “found out they were Proud Boys when [he] saw the headlines” and that he “thought they were just a bunch of … construction dudes based on how they looked.”

The young man also said Wood and Pierce discussed having the Proud Boys provide security, but he rejected the idea because he didn’t “want anything to do with them.”

Rittenhouse insisted that Wood was “insane” and a QAnon conspiracy theorist, and these were some of the reasons why he fired Wood.

I don’t see them at a bar serenaded by Proud Boys. Totality of circumstances.

I tend to think it is another false narrative generated by the left to label anyone they want to a white supremist. But doesn't it really fit these people best? The party of the KKK and Jim Crow? Joe Biden with his openly racist comments that the left bends over backward to ignore.

AOC? Hey, if she looked like Nancy Pelosi right now, she'd have never won a political seat. She is a seriously dim bulb that looks pretty good, and democrats never vote out a good looking girl. I harken back to her announcement of the GND and all the white dudes behind her grinning and looking at her ass. #MeToo meant something different that day.

So many white supremists in DC

Oh, and xtra, don't celebrate Thanksgiving because it is obviously a white supremist construct. I mean, if we want to abide by all fictional narratives generated by idiots on the left for the sheep, you better not eat any turkey, and never ever be thankful for stuff. I mean if we all want to be witlessly led by people wanting to control ALL of us.............

Makes me wonder when all you smart party folks are gonna say 'ENOUGH!' It is taking much longer than I expected.

3 white guys chase down a black man in a pickup and shoot him.
What verdict did these people that spot mentioned think any jury of sound mind would render especially with the video for the world to see.
I think they were disappointed.
They want to inflame race hatred. Every policy they push is tied to race or racial injustice including global warming climate change social injustice poverty inequity.
I was really surprised that there were not mass protests and riots after Rittenhouse's verdict.
They tried to light a spark. They being politicians like Biden, Harris. And the celebrities.

You all need to contact Rittenhouse and let him know that the OK sign has not been co opted by White Supremecist groups and when used in the wrong context is not a white supremecist signal. Right now he thinks it is a WS signal.

And you all can feel free to just go flashing the OK sign around all of your minority friends and associates. Maybe flash it behind your minority students backs just to let others know they are OK.


Again:
Banfield reported that “Rittenhouse said he didn’t know making the ‘OK’ sign with his hand had become a white supremacist signal, and he didn’t know he was in a bar full of Proud Boys members Jan. 5.”

Marjorie Taylor Green wants to give Rittenhouse a Congressional Medal of Honor. She’s nucking futs.
