100% self defense.

sfluke8 [S] 101 points ago +101 / -0

I guess this will be the dividing line, people that see that this was self defense and people that don't--and don't care.

tsacian 67 points ago +67 / -0

Whether or not it was self defense (it obviously was), no one would be able to prove beyond reasonable doubt that this was not justified. He should not be charged, but the lefty DA will charge him and call him racist (hes not even white).

Isnt a jury trial required any time deadly forced is used in self defense?

No.

The_Huscarl 4 points ago +4 / -0

A jury trial is required for anything in criminal court. However, the defendant has the option to waive his right to a jury and allow the judge to make the call.

6th Amendment of the Bill of Rights: "In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence."

When you claim self defense it's on you to prove it. If you're being tried for murder it's on the state to prove it.

3
Panthers426 3 points ago +3 / -0

This is only semi-true. In federal court self defense must be disproven by the prosecution. In state courts the state is permitted to legislate the shifting of the burden of proof to the defendant if they raise self defense. So this is gonna depend on state law.

The only people who will claim to not see it as self defense are being dishonest. No way in hell you could watch these videos and see anything different.

Already saw facebook arguments using screenshots to pretend the guy who rushed him with the pistol was murdered.

Important to post the videos as much as you can.

I'm so angry at what the Democrats consented to happen in their cities, by the way they casually ignore and disregard these violent rioters. Now young people who shouldn't have to, defend others and have to experience the emotional drain of taking someone else's life. Never pretty.

Damn. This kid was in the belly of these criminals and walked on out. Had he no gun, he could have easily been dead by these savages with no regard to human life or people’s property.

LISTEN UP ALL YOU FUCKS - IF ANYTHING HAPPENS TO THIS KID I WILL PERSONALLY DRIVE 10 HOURS TO WISCONSIN AND DEFEND THIS KIDS LIFE FROM ANY DA OR GOVERNOR WHO WANTS TO MAKE AN EXAMPLE OF THIS KID!

It is time to make our presence known, i will stand behind this kid 100%, he decided to defend his life instead of letting some ravenous terrorists take his life. We as AMericans need to support more people like this kid who are defending their cities from these terrorists. We need to make this clear to everyone in the world, we will not tolerate our cities and our lifes being destroyed by these terrorists who hate America.

This is exactly the ttype of stand thats needed. The DA is releasing people who were arrested; the opposite action we have as the people is preventing the DA and law from coming to arrest those they wish to arrest.

Trudict 44 points ago +44 / -0

You got your story wrong a little bit.

It wasn't the skateboarder who had the gun.

IT was the guy who had his bicep blasted off that had the gun (the guy with his hands up... he had the gun in one hand and his cellphone in the other).

28
llamadoH 28 points ago +28 / -0

Correct. The text description isnt 100% accurate. But I am not arguing against this being self defence. I still believe the shooter was in the right.

Skateboarder hit him with the skateboard first then grabbed at his rifle. Unfortunately for him, he grabbed the end that goes bang.

The guy without the bicep is called Lefty.

Hadn't seen that angle, of green shirt being shot at after regaining his footing. You can absolutely hear all the shots fired in the video, I just could never figure out who was doing the shooting or what at.

God does protect his flock.

10
supermagafragilistic 10 points ago +10 / -0

I assumed they were fired while fleeing or holding the gun sideways. The bullets were probably hitting buildings, cars, clouds. The kid didn't look shook by it at all.

Beat_to_Quarters 19 points ago +19 / -0

Why is their a "hunt" for him then if he already reported to police his side?

Okie_Life 30 points ago +30 / -0

Because having the gunman turn himself in peaceful to the police shows he isn't as dangerous as the news wants to make him out to be.

6
NoStumpoElTrumpo 6 points ago +7 / -1

right, but he was supposedly captured in Illinois today? That doesn't jive with green text

3
ColbyP 3 points ago +3 / -0

He turned himself in, gave police his address, and they told him to go home. They already had his name and address, they didn't need to arrest him right then and there. Media picks up on the fact that he lived 30 minutes away, which just happened to be in another state since Kenosha is right on the state line, and begin reporting that he fled from the police despite it being total bullshit.

Did he turn himself in? I’m seeing he was arrested in his hometown 30 minutes away in Illinois and charged with first degree murder and fleeing across state lines.

Keiichi81 13 points ago +13 / -0 (edited)

According to that very same article:

Eye witnesses then said the gunman was allowed to walk past police without getting arrested

So it sounds like he went to the local police, they let him go, he returned home, and then a warrant for his arrest was issued, at which point he voluntarily surrendered himself to his local police department.

I don't know how the criminal complaint against him can claim "(The suspect) fled the state of Wisconsin with the intent to avoid prosecution for that offense," or how he can be labeled a "fugitive" when the article itself mentions that he made contact with local police following the incident and was allowed to leave. Seems like horseshit.

Twitter and reddit are subhuman. They think coming from another state to defend property is a crime but coming from another state to destroy it are fine. Or that being 17 with a gun is a crime that should even exist.

Did he turn himself in though? Why did they have to go back to his hometown in IL to find him, and considered it a "manhunt for a fugitive"? Sounds like he didn't make it back to the police.

Keiichi81 2 points ago +2 / -0

You could try reading the article where it specifies that he walked to the police line after the shootings and was allowed to leave without being arrested.

He apparently then went home (which the article admits is only a 30 minute drive away, yet they still go to pains to label him as being from "out of state"), after which an arrest warrant was issued and he turned himself in to his local PD.

Despite that, he's being charged with "evading arrest". Like, WTF was he supposed to do? Loiter around Kenosha for a couple days waiting to see if the police decided to charge him?
