    And speaking even further of which: UPDATE: Rittenhouse no longer enrolled in ASU Online ahead of protest demanding the 'violent blood-thirsty murderer' be removed After Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges in connection to his incident of self defense during the Kenosha riots, leftist students continue to accuse him of being a racist and a murderer https://www.campusreform.org/article?id=18501 Addison Smith (29 November 2021) UPDATE: Campus Reform has confirmed that as of Monday, Rittenhouse is no longer enrolled in the ASU Online program, with the university stating that he is "not currently enrolled in any classes at ASU" and still "has not gone through the ASU admissions process." Arizona State University students are pressuring the administration to “withdraw” Kyle Rittenhouse from the school’s online program, calling him a “violent blood-thirsty murderer”.

    Try here (or see below): https://dnyuz.com/2021/11/29/self-defense-is-becoming-meaningless-in-a-flood-of-guns/ As pundits and legal experts consider why Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted of murder, many have focused on the prosecution’s choices — and possible errors — in the case, or else on the rulings of the presiding judge. But even more than the prosecution or the verdict, it is really the defense’s strategy that we will have to live with for years to come — a strategy based on a bold and unapologetic acknowledgment of the dangers inherent in carrying a gun. The defense doubled down on the right to bear arms and asserted a right to fire, too. Such a strategy, which has adherents at the poles of the political spectrum, will increase gun violence, not only in red states, but wherever it is allowed to go unchallenged. A claim of self-defense when you are caught on tape shooting people, as Mr. Rittenhouse was, is predictable. This case was never a whodunit. Instead, Mr. Rittenhouse’s team had to explain why his shooting three people, killing two of them, were not crimes. And what put him in imminent danger serious enough to justify his use of deadly force, according to Mr. Rittenhouse, was the presence of his own gun. Recalling the final moments of his decision to fire at Joseph Rosenbaum, Mr. Rittenhouse testified: “I remember hand on the barrel of my gun.” As a prosecutor, I have often seen arguments like these during investigations of police officers who have shot and killed unarmed people. In those cases, the officers cite their fear that their own weapons would used against them. From an armed civilian, this claim is different. Instead of distancing Mr. Rittenhouse from or minimizing the effect of his weapon, Mr. Rittenhouse and his lawyers built their case upon it: Because he had a gun, he found himself in a situation where he needed to use it. In other words, the gun he carried was not a deterrent, but the very reason for the escalation to violence.

    No problem. Part of it may come from a misunderstanding of the situation. No cameras (picture or video) are allowed in the courtroom. This is standard for all federal court proceedings, and has been for a long time.

Press & spectators have not been barred from the courtroom.

    Jussie Smollett heads to trial, nearly 3 years after the former ‘Empire’ star was accused of hate crime hoax The 39-year-old actor and singer is charged with lying to Chicago police in 2019 when he claimed he was the victim of a racist and anti-gay attack near his Streeterville apartment. https://chicago.suntimes.com/crime/2021/11/28/22800734/jussie-smollett-former-empire-star-hate-crime-hoax Matthew Hendrickson & Andy Grimm (28 November 2021) Jury selection is expected to begin Monday in the trial of former “Empire” star Jussie Smollett — nearly three years after he claimed he was the victim of a hate crime only to later be accused of staging the attack. The controversy significantly tarnished Smollett’s career when he was criminally charged and led to his character being written off the hit Fox televsion show “Empire.” It also brought intense scrutiny on Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s office when the initial disorderly conduct charges against Smollett were suddenly dropped months later. That decision by Foxx’s office led to the appointment of former U.S. Attorney Dan Webb as a special prosecutor in the case tasked with reinvestigating the allegations against Smollett, as well as possible wrongdoing by Foxx and her staff.

    Speaking of which (h/t Peter Boghossian): Universities Try to Force a Consensus About Kyle Rittenhouse https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2021/11/universities-forced-consensus-kyle-rittenhouse/620809/ Conor Friedersdorf (26 November 2021) At universities, the recent acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse should be an opportunity to study a divisive case that sparked complex debates about issues as varied as self-defense laws, guns, race, riots, the rights of defendants, prosecutorial missteps, media bias, and more. If administrators were doing their jobs, faculty and students would freely air a wide variety of viewpoints and have opportunities to better understand one another’s diverse perspectives. Instead, many administrators are preemptively imposing their preferred narratives. The Rittenhouse saga began in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on August 25, amid rioting that followed the police shooting of a Black man. Rittenhouse, then 17, armed himself with an AR-15-style rifle and walked into the chaos, claiming that he intended to protect the community. He wound up shooting three men, killing two. Last week, a Wisconsin jury found him not guilty of murder, crediting his claim that, at the moment he fired, he feared for his life and acted in self-defense. This, many analysts argued, was a plausible conclusion to draw from Wisconsin law and video footage and testimony presented at trial.

    Regardless of what one thinks about what happened on "1/6" (or what should be done about it), the mind can only boggle at the bizarre irrationality of invoking such a grotesquely irrelevant non sequitur. This makes Pee-wee Herman's "I know you are, but what am I?" look like the epitome of well-reasoned rebuttals. And yet, there are a lot of people who will actually regard and accept this as an adequate and even telling rejoinder.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to cjm again. (Also moving to the Open Discussion forum, as this subject has a much wider range of relevance than just the COVID angle.) I haven't watched to OP videos, but the write-up accompanying the second one is quite interesting. Just some random thoughts/observations:

    Yeah, no. Just no. People should continue to pay attention to (and post about) the Rittenhouse affair for just as long as it continues to engage or interest them (however long that might be), and not for one moment less. I don't agree. People are able to walk and chew gum at the same time, and they are able to pay attention to more than one story at once, as well. At any given moment, there is more than just one important/significant thing going on in the world.

    This is over a week late, but I wanted to reply to your neg rep comment. I actually was here in 2007, under a different screenname/account, (wildflower) but that's besides the point. I simply have a different opinion on your actions regarding the whole Gunny thing. But I don't feel like arguing about it any further, so that's all.
