Jury acquits Gifford man who claimed self-defense after girlfriend killed by sheriff's SWAT team in 2017 raid
https://news.yahoo.com/jury-acquits-gifford-man-claimed-195415308.html

A separate case, but I saw someone point this one out as another case where a man was acquitted.  Only this man was black and he actually shot at police.  So self defense isn't just a white thing. 

It does look like he was tagged for a felon in possession charge.


And in THIS instance, the cops were actually raiding his place with a WARRANT! I still don't understand...

Somewhat similar to the Breonna Taylor case here in Louisville.
But in this case her boyfriend, a felon, open fire on the still outside police through the door AFTER they knocked and IDed themselves* striking one. The police returned fire and the reason she was struck was because he was firing from behind her in the hallway at the time. Despite the fact he was a felon with a gun and had fired on police striking one he was let go due to political pressure
The police were at time looking for her other boyfriend a drug dealer.

*Confirmed by some of her neighbors

The street narrative is that the police just barged in and shot her in bed just because Completely counter to what witnesses and evidence say happened

The difference between a no-knock and an announced dynamic entry raid is a whisper in a hallway at 3AM.

That bullshit has to stop.

In the Taylor case several witnesses (her neighbors)  have stated the police did knock and ID themselves, the boyfriend then started shooting through the door.
Wasn't clear about that fact above so I added it.

I have never understood the concept of "serving" a warrant by smashing your way into a residence at oh-dark-thirty, rather than knocking on the door like a civilized person and displaying a copy of the warrant so the occupant(s) can read it and verify that it's a legal warrant. It's one thing to do a no-knock warrant "service" when trying to apprehend an armed and known violent felon. It's uncalled for when searching for inanimate objects.

New Headlines on MSNBC this morning. If they're not actively trying incite riots and start a race war then what are they doing?

Malcolm Nance: White nationalists are high-fiving over the Rittenhouse verdict

Where the prosecutor in the Rittenhouse case went wrong, according to a civil rights lawyer

The judicial system 'was designed to do exactly what it did' for Rittenhouse

The Rittenhouse verdict exposes how America's become more comfortable with violence

Why Kyle Rittenhouse's not guilty verdict actually makes perfect sense. (The article makes it clear what they mean by that)

So the judicial system was designed to harass an obviously innocent young man (a white man for our racist friends on the left), while failing to punish a criminal who illegally had and illegally used a firearm, and another creep that admitted to assault, apparently. Such breathtaking insight from MSNBC...

I'm having so much fun. I am remaining calm,nice, and asking them questions and their screaming and pulling out their hair LOL LOL.
 she wants to block me but we have been friends since the seventies and can't, bwaahahahahahah.
 Asking hollywood and rocks elites to defend their evil , without their writers and advisors is such a hoot!!
its really enjoyable!!
They're really freaking out. they have a lot of power so it scares me a bit.

Lots of people are suddenly "clarifying" stuff since the not guilty verdict. Here's Gofundme:

https://twitchy.com/dougp-3137/2021/11/20/damage-control-allow-gofundme-to-clarify-something-in-light-of-the-rittenhouse-trial-result/

I actually don't remember exactly what happened with them and the Rittenhouse Gofundme, but their "clarification" is not believable to me. I'm betting there are a bunch more Gofundmes besides the examples in the link that were used to collect money for someone defending themselves in court after being accused of a violent crime. They are just politically acceptable recipients.

I haven't even said anything about what the MSM covers up about her.

She was forced out of her paramedic job for stealing drugs from hospitals and other reported infractions.
Was reportedly running BF #1's drug business while he was in jail.
Was a murder suspect.

1) When the left gets a purely innocent victim (like I think John Crawford III was) they couldn't care less.  They only want "victims" who the right will reject because what they really want is controversy not justice.

2) I am not really familiar with the Taylor case, but her past is irrelevant if the cops that shot her didn't know it (and is probably irrelevant if they did.)  After the fact, maybe the world is a better place without her in it; again irrelevant to the case but maybe consolation to the ones involved.

The biggest thing the police did wrong in this is firing blindly back into the apartment not knowing her BF was apparently firing from behind her in the hallway. Take from that what you will about the BF. And yes the police can be faulted for firing blindly.
There is some question about how the warrant was obtained but it's all been too shrouded in a fog of distortions and lies to tell what's true what's not.
The media keeps making hay about it being a no-knock warrant but apparently they didn't use that way and it is confirmed by her neighbors they did knock and IDed themselves as police before the BF started firing through the door.

When you're talking to them, and the first thing that you say is... "Yeah, well, first this baby raper was coming after the kid and trying to grab his firearm..."
 
They get confused.
 
"Well, yeah - the guy had a record. With kids. If he had gotten that AR-15, what do  you think he planned to do with it?"
 
They get more confused.
 
Open their minds.

Pretty sure that's a basic right enshrined in our constitution, but I guess it bothers some people.

No, not really. Funny that you put it that way, though. You'd be OK with Kyle popping green card workers from his windowsill at home?
