I'm not saying it's acceptable at all. I'm saying it's inevitable. Wearing a badge doesn't mean you're any less likely to snap, after having weeks of being treated like shit, being abused and harassed, having family members threatened and seeing innocent colleagues be shot for no reason.I can't believe you're seriously suggesting retaliation like that is acceptable.
A police officer is going to be dealing with law breakers on a daily basis, it's only natural, as part of their job. They're not sitting around having tea and crumpets every day with Granny Smith.
Take any job. Your job. My job. We deal with assholes, we deal with crap, but you handle it professionally. If you can't, you find a more suitable job. No difference here.
Retaliation on the job because it's all getting a bit too much for you, is weak and pathetic.
I agree that they should leave the job if they're about to react that way, but in the heat of the moment, reactions like that are inevitable. It doesn't make it right or justifiable but it's always going to happen.You find another job. You don't go postal on the job.
Fucking clown. Come up with excuses as to why the police act the way they do, while dismissing they are trained, compensated, and VOLUNTARILY do the stupid as job.And the vast majority of police are like you. The vast majority of civilians are like this too, and don't react with violence either but there's always going to be a few who aren't like that, civilian or not.
The whole point of what I'm saying is, police officers are no different to anyone else. You can't look at the odd officer doing inhumane shit whilst assuming that it's the catalyst rather than the reaction. Most police officers are like you, they'll take shit on the chin and still do the decent thing, but there's a minority who will snap when they're treated like shit, day after day, week after week.
There's always this double standards in regards to how police avd civilians react, not on a professional level but human. That somehow police should always just take it and any time they snap, it's proof that they're subhuman. It's wrong. The police are just humans doing a tough job but if you treat enough of them with contempt, the odd one is bound to snap and react with violence. It's wrong, but it's human nature, and police are as guilty of that as anyone else in society.
Problem is, it's not his community. He chose to drive across a state line to break curfew while carrying an illegal weapon, ...
The 'weapons charge' in Ilinois was always a non-issue. Only the spastics that keep parroting the 'he crossed state lines' bullshit bought into that, and they'll keep repeating it anyway. Spastics gonna spastic.Another update:

Man who fired shots before Kyle Rittenhouse in Kenosha charged
'The defendant is seen walking in the same area, holding his right arm upwards, and firing off one shot from his handgun,' a criminal complaint said
The man who admitted firing gunshots before Kyle Rittenhouse gunned down two people and wounded a third during a protest in Kenosha, Wis., has been charged.
Joshua Ziminski, 35, faces disorderly conduct and use of a dangerous weapon charges stemming from the Aug. 25 shooting during protests in the city over Jacob Blake's serious injuries after being shot in the back by police.
According to a criminal complaint obtained by Fox News, Kenosha detectives investigating the fatal shootings reviewed video footage of the night's events and observed Ziminski holding a black handgun. In one video, he is seen walking with his wife near the Ultimate Gas Station before he is captured firing a shot into the air, authorities said.
“Detective Howard observed a muzzle flash emit from the handgun, and heard a gunshot at the same time," the complaint states. "In another video, the defendant is clearly seen at that same location. The defendant is seen walking in the same area, holding his right arm upwards, and firing off one shot from his handgun."
Detectives met with Ziminski and his wife on Oct. 7, where they both admitted he fired a "warning shot" into the air. The pair also said the firearm was stolen from their home several days prior.
Rittenhouse's attorney, Lin Wood, released an 11-minute video last month through his #FightBackFoundation that says shots were fired before and after the teen killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, in the first fatal shooting.
Wood said video footage of the incident proves his client acted in self-defense.
"The evidence is overwhelming," Wood told Fox News on Tuesday. "There's not one iota of evidence that he did anything except defend himself."
Ziminski pleaded not guilty to the charges against him Friday and was released on $1,000, according to records. A court hearing is scheduled for Dec. 4. Calls and messages to his attorney were not returned.
After shooting Rosenbaum, Rittenhouse was seen in a now-viral video running on the street with a military-style rifle. He then shot and killed Anthony Huber, 26 and wounded another person in the arm as he appeared to be attacked while on the ground.
He is charged with first-degree intentional homicide and several other criminal charges. He is being held in Illinois, pending extradition to Wisconsin.
On Tuesday, Illinois prosecutors said they declined to charge the teen with gun offenses after an investigation revealed he never possessed the weapon used in the killings in the state.
People who bring up that he crossed state lines are people who are okay with the rioting and destruction. They think he was wrong to try and stop thugs from burning businesses so they are just looking for things to throw at him. I don’t care if he got on a plane and went across country to defend businesses, that is not the issue. The issue is left wing trash was attacking another town and his rifle would not have been an issue if that trash did not attack him.The 'weapons charge' in Ilinois was always a non-issue. Only the spastics that keep parroting the 'he crossed state lines' bullshit bought into that, and they'll keep repeating it anyway. Spastics gonna spastic.
The charge against the first shooter is potentially huge, but it's not a case-winner in itself though. It's not enough for Kyle to say 'I heard shots' as part of a self defence case, he has to say 'I thought someone was shooting at me, and I feared for my life' or something similar. We don't know what he told the police, if anything, before he lawyered up. I would like to think he had a lawyer from the second he was arrested, but he seems like the type to be unnecessarily 'helpful' to cops.
All that said, if it's established that this guy started this whole mess off, then bicep guy is in deep shit.
Wait - he was there to defend businesses?People who bring up that he crossed state lines are people who are okay with the rioting and destruction. They think he was wrong to try and stop thugs from burning businesses so they are just looking for things to throw at him. I don’t care if he got on a plane and went across country to defend businesses, that is not the issue.
Hey, you know what else would have prevented that trash from attacking him?The issue is left wing trash was attacking another town and his rifle would not have been an issue if that trash did not attack him.
Fuck him up, court system.A 19-year-old Kenosha man who told police he bought a rifle for his friend Kyle Rittenhouse — and who drove Rittenhouse back to Antioch, Ill. after the teen is allegedwww.kenoshanews.com
Are you deliberately being a spastic?Aside from the illegal gun that he wasn't allowed to buy, own, transport across state lines or open carry, that is?
If he had stayed the fuck at home in his own town, instead of getting his Mum to drive him to a different state so he could rubberneck and be a LARPer and a disaster tourist.
It was taken across state lines. It was in his friends trunk when he was driven home.Are you deliberately being a spastic?
Repeating the same lies won't make them so. For the 27th time, the gun wasn't carried across state lines.
Why do you insist on spreading lies?
I agree. He shouldn't have been in that situation in the first place but it was made possible by other people who were charged for those action. No matter how he ended up in that situation, he didn't actually go beyond what was necessary to protect himself and he did try to disengage from the people he ended up shooting. I've seen 2 similar cases in Denmark which has much stricter laws in this regards and people were not punished for actually defending themselves when their lives depended on it. The got off with illegally owning a firearm convictions.I didn’t see the whole video but this is going to be the best trial of all time. A crime that was captured on phone..
I predict he will get off on the murder charges..
When?It was taken across state lines. It was in his friends trunk when he was driven home.
So why wasn't he charged with gun offenses?
Kenosha shooter claims he was hired as security, told police where to find gun used in fatal shootingsKyle Rittenhouse cycled through a range of emotions, crying and vomiting several times, as he described to police what happened after he traveled to Kenosha, ostensibly to protect businesses from protesters following the police shooting of Jacob Blake, the Antioch Police Department records show.abc7chicago.com
Rittenhouse also told police that the firearm he used was in the trunk of his friend's car, parked at the Rittenhouse's family apartment in Antioch.
Antioch is his hometown in Illinois.
So yes, the gun was taken across state lines.
His friend essentially acted as a straw purchaser and illegally provided him with a weapon he was unable to buy on his own.
