    Re Qt:[Obama said, according to Fox News. “And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”]

    Also, he said America ain't what it used to be for jobs..Then Trump brought jobs back.

    He (Obama) cost me a bundle of dollars when he closed the gulf for oil.

    Likely Biden will puke jobs and kill oil...IMHO..done is done.

    IMO all the researchers should be required to take it first, too. That would go a long ways, me thinks.

    Both Phizer and Moderna have stated they are in this for profit. For US citizens the vaccine will be FREE, but you will have to pay for it to be administered, the rest of the world will have to pay per dose. Astra Zeneca is stating no profit and their cost will be 1/4 of what Pfizer and Moderna want, even at $5 a dose a lot of third world patients may not be able to afford it. Several Pfizer top scientists sold off millions in stock a week or so ago, makes me wonder.

    Actually on that one, it was one teenager, he exhibited terrible judgement, but those guys who got shot - they deserved it. He was retreating, physically attacked when he tripped, hit with the skateboard, before he shot his attacker.

    You're giving those violent dickheads a pass by glossing right over that part. Fuck them, they were no better.

    Qt: Astra Zeneca is stating no profit .. Even at no profit, a company needs to pay expenses like wages and overhead.

    Free is often a bad thing because the company should stay in business.

    If this story it looked like that boy was defending his life.
    Accused Kenosha killer Kyle Rittenhouse told pal he expected to spend life in prison

    Was he from out of state?
    Rittenhouse is a 17-year-old from Antioch, Ill...21 miles away so yes out of state.
    where were the other boys/men from?

    Qrt: [and blowing away people when they're "afraid"] chasing him with a gun? does not seem that afraid.....

    But: Gaige Grosskreutz was seen holding a gun on video during the protest

    I would shoot someone chasing me with a screwdriver with intent to harm me.

    But I would have stayed clear of such a dangerous place where many went to cause a ruckus.

    Medical researchers have been testing themselves by both purposely getting a disease, and then (if they make it) trying to cure themselves for hundreds of years, and likely much, much longer.

    $5 x XXXmillion should cover a lot. (correction, I think $8 a dose was their last prediction)

    Buck,

    are you mad? He already shot a man in the head and was fleeing the scene killing another in the process, and finally injuring the man you are referencing. Get your facts in order. the boy was already a killer and in-flight by the time he encountered your buggy man with a gun, this self-defense argument is a right-wing fantasy.


    The whole sequence is on video.

    dee

    And had already broken laws just getting the gun, and then crossing state lines with it.

    He had every intention of using his new penis, sorry, assault-style rifle. He should not be out on bail.

    He never should have been there, same goes for the rest of the characters in that story. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes, looks to me like they all hit the jackpot that night.

    I will try to find the start of the incident.
    Was he being chased when he first shot somebody?

    True! This came out last week, best timeline and backstory I've seen. No sympathy from me for the rest of the characters, but at the same time Kyle made some piss poor choices and it is hard to find much sympathy for him either.

    In court, they will ask/try to prove if he was being chased and in fear of his life when he shot the first person. If that first person was a threat or justifiably deemed to be a threat to him.
    If he was running away from the problem then his shooting someone may be justified if the above is true.

    That he and the others should have not been there is true. That he should not have had the gun is true.

    That he should be hung to avoid another riot is not true.

    I have zero/no sympathy for Kyle.

    Theft is unlikely on the first because of the fact the cost will be highly subsidized. To steal it under the security if it is good which I expect it to be would be hard. Too there would have to be proper cold storage on these if stolen. Then penalties would be extreme for that.

    Profit motive must be worth the risk and highly worth the risk. Could be there might be buyers who will pay big for it who are afraid of kicking the bucket who would pay.

    Yep. Dickheads like him shouldn't do the crime if they can't do the time. Law and order says if convicted he gets the chair. Probably right in the state laws where he's from.

    no, he shot someone in the head and was fleeing the screen when he shot the second guy dead who chased him with an f'n skateboard and injured the third guy you are referring to. Get your facts straight
