“Awesome. Democrats must be spinning their heads over this.”

Awesome? This is from Illinois, not Wisconsin where he faces multiple charges.

So much for the falsehood that he crossed state lines with implied motive of going outlooks for trouble.
So which media and public figures promoted that falsehood?

“Grosskreutz appeared to be holding a handgun when he was wounded in the arm, prosecutors wrote.”

Appeared to be holding a gun? Video and still photos confirm he was aiming the gun at Kyle.

Uh, no.

Maybe a presidential medal of freedom, COMs are reserved for uniformed personnel.

That said, the youngster did well under threat of fire.

He needs to beat the charges and become a full blown patriot. Let’s help him by donating to his defense and acting in a manner worthy of our Founders.

And the weapon was legal for a 17-year-old to possess in Wisconsin.

Well if those clowns were at all consistent the sentence should read “Grosskreutz appeared to be holding a handgun when he appeared to be wounded in what appeared to be his arm.”

With a pretty solid case for self-defense.

It’s a bellweather. Winsconsin has a weak case. If one prosecutor is unwilling to try it, the other is probably of the opinion that it’s not a strong case for the state. Rittenhouse may still be prosecuted, but it’s winnable.

No. There was no case there.

“Rittenhouse may still be prosecuted,”

He will be prosecuted.

There was never a case in Illinois. The main charges are in Wisconsin.

So he was that familiar, comfortable, and competent with a Borrowed rifle? Didn’t have to check the sights?

Targets were close however.
