"The Killing of Ahmaud Arbery"..... This is the title that a local station as chosen to head their coverage of this Story and Trial. IMHO just the title alone shows and insensitivity and I find it to be an egregious Title choice.
They were protesting the death of a black person. They are being punish as N*** lovers. This is indeed about racism.I totally think Rittenhouse should have been convicted of murder. But it seems that maaany people think that his victims were black. I’m confused about all the people yelling about racism… We live in a white supremacist society, which affects everything, yes. But this is more about our ridiculous self defense and gun laws, which allow killers to walk free, even when it’s white on white crime such as in this case.
Following both cases at the same time is interesting, since both defenses are almost the same. I do think that there will be a conviction in the Arbery case. The prosecutor is actually really good, and has, I believe, clearly established that Arbery was absolutely not an actual threat to his killers. The only thing I’m worried about is that this state of mind defense they are trying to establish will be accepted by the jury. Them carting out every neighbor to say that they were all living in fear of someone stealing tools, is ridiculous to me. But we’ve seen it before, where imaginary fears are determined to be a valid reason to reduce a murder I to a lesser charge.

Richards showed the jury a clip that depicts Rosenbaum taunting others on the night of his death.
"Shoot me," Rosenbaum says in the video before adding the N-word. He then says the same phrase, ending it again with the N-word. "Bust on me for real," he then says.
A little more than a minute later, while referring to the clip, Richards repeated Rosenbaum's words in the video, including the two instances of Rosenbaum saying the N-word.
I agree! I definitely see it as all of this being caught up in the BLM protests and that’s what is more disturbing.Did you watch the trial? If not, that’s the problem with a lot of the commentary I’ve seen today. If you have, let me remind you that one of the victims was at the protest calling folks the N-word.
Just because these white men were at a BLM protest without an AK-15, doesn’t mean they were allies of the black community. All kinds of people show up to these protests for various reasons. Often it’s just to witness and be part of a spectacle.
One victim (not the n-word hurler) is involved in an anti gov/anti police group. A lot of these types come out for BLM protests. They don’t actually care about black lives, they just hate the police/laws.
All 3 victims also have serious criminal histories, which include child molestation, rape, burglary, domestic battery (strangulation), drunk driving, and more. I strongly doubt these 3 deviants were there for any moral cause. They’re just attracted to chaos like moths to flames.
They were murdered by Rittenhouse though.
I do not care at all that Rittenhouse got away with killing some other white people. He’ll be stuck with the notoriety of half the country thinking that he’s a murderer and that’s a kind of punishment anyway.
Right; it isn’t so much justice for Rittenhouse’s victims as the obvious and constant lack of justice for non-white people who are accused of crimes, the instant criminalization of black children, etc. This murderer… the rapist who just got probation… the drunk driver who killed 4 people… young white men brazenly get away with egregious crimes over and over again, while black youths have their lives destroyed over misdemeanors, mere accusations or nothing at all.I'm just irritated that white people get away with their crimes period. When I used to volunteer at a juvenile prison, 99.8 percent of the young men and women serving time were Black or Hispanic. I know damn well that Caucasian youth are committing crimes too, but they never seem to get punished for them.
His mother walked out when this was said.What do his toenails have to do with anything?
She mentioned it today a bit asking the jury where was the empathy for Ahmaud as they were chasing him in their trucks and pointing a gun at him. But she could have drove that point in harder. I think overall she is doing a great job though and is focusing more on the actions of the killers than in what Amaud.They just want to paint him as a scary black man.
They also hinted at the fact that him going for the gun (when it was brandished) was HIS mistake. Like he should just let them shoot him or detain him.
He didn't know WHO these guys were. They could have been sick cult members offering to eat him or offer him as a sacrifice. If I was prosecution I would have mentioned that. I would mention that ANYONE who saw these crazies chasing them would have a natural instinct to RUN LIKE HELL. I would hammer that down. I would mention that for some reason these white men saw themselves as the law and that average black people should harken and bow down to a random white man's "implicit" authority....Then I'd ask the jury...what year is it? I'd hammer down...these were average white ppl this guy had NO IDEA who they were.
