This heartbreaking verdict is a miscarriage of justice and sets a dangerous precedent which justifies federal review by DOJ. Justice cannot tolerate armed persons crossing state lines looking for trouble while people engage in First Amendment-protected protest.They just won't let this go, will they?
Kyle Rittenhouse was not an armed person crossing state lines. His gun stayed in Wisconsin. He was helping people. There was no First Amendment protest. There was a violent and destructive riot, in violation of a curfew.
Any federal prosecution would be a violation of the double jeopardy clause of the Bill of Rights.
And what was heartbreaking? It was a self-defense case, and Nadler says nothing about that.
All this talk about "crossing state lines" is particularly offensive. We have free travel in the USA. Those who live near a state border do not need a reason to be allowed to cross the border. They can cross whenever they want, just as they cross the street.
It is really telling that the Rittenhouse critics are quick to complain about crossing state lines, as if something is wrong with that.
Nadler represents much of what is bad about the Democrat Party.
