It's based on your personal desire because there's no evidence he did or intended to do what you accuse him of. The fact he went to be interviewed by Tucker Carlson just intensifies your feelings (of wishing him to be behind bars) due to apparently you being firmly on the opposite side politically.The others you talk about didn't kill anyone so let's not talk about them because then you're just deflecting. Let's stick to the accused and in this case it was Rittenhouse parading his gun at everyone and when they attacked him he opened fire with an AR-15 in a crowded which is ridiculous. God knows how many more could've died that day. If others did that then they should be thrown in jail too. It has nothing to do with the 2nd amendment rather the intent of the troublemaker. He should've stuck to a pistol if he was so worried about his personal wellbeing.
You keep saying it's based on my personal desire. I don't even know this lunatic, so what personal bias do I have? Just because I disagree with your take doesn't mean I have a personal bias.
I don't buy the poor parenting excuse. That's just an excuse. There are kids who have had poor parenting and they became great people, some became serial killers. So it's an excuse. You yourself said he was mixed with the Proud boys. That makes it even more damning so the self defense is just an excuse.
I find it appalling that this kid who got off easy went on Tucker and goes off against Biden. That just shows he's culpable and doesn't offer any regard to the grieving families.
The right response should've been "Hey Tucker I just want to say I feel sorry for the families and I don't want to blame anyone for my actions even if they were in self defense. I wish that noone got killed." Instead he went on a right wing rant so he is guilty. The right celebrating this guy's release are pathetic.
I agree with you about the statement he should've given. He also went to see Trump at Mar-a-Lago. Notice again his mother was with him, as she was in the bar when he mingled with the Proud Boys. I don't get your point about downplaying the impact of parenting. Certainly that plays a very significant part in someone's development. Parents/family, school, and friends being probably the biggest influences.
On where he lies ideologically: clearly on the right based on the people he has met recently and whose help he accepted (Lin Wood; Mike Lindell). I don't know about the sign you spoke of (the text/message of which is still unknown to me). How much that means simply "basic" Republican/conservative (God, family, country; lower taxes, gun rights, restrictions on abortion etc.), and how much sth else (more extreme views; racist views e.g.) is unclear. What is the distinction between Republicanism and Trumpism these days is a question in itself. I wonder also how much he has thought these things through and how much is he now simply being used as a vehicle in propaganda, the extent of which he may not fully understand. Or maybe he has seen this as a golden ticket/opportunity. I wonder who is talking in his ear currently.
