Students weigh in on American culture and the criminal-justice system.www.wsj.com
“America hasn’t eliminated its racist roots. Mr. Rittenhouse, a 17-year-old white boy, had no need to go to the Black Lives Matter protest with a rifle. It was not his duty to maintain order, and he ended up killing two white men and injuring another. None of this would have happened if he had minded his own business instead of trying to be a vigilante.” —Deepak Govindarajan, Augustana University, computer science
Deepak obviously didn’t watch a second of the trial. As we all know, there were few protestors and they were long gone by 9pm that night, the streets were filled with rioters. And if those tugged had not violently attacked rittenhouse, they wounded have been shot.
The aggressors were rosenbaum, Huber and grosskruetz, this fact was decided forever by the jury.
