Shooting in self-defense

If you are being chased by people who are presenting a credible threat and you shoot and kill some of them, you didn't commit murder. You didn't do anything wrong.

If the reason they started chasing you is that you were standing guard over some property they wanted to destroy, you didn't even need to start to run before defending yourself from them.

If you are "arrested" for defending yourself in this manner, anyone involved with the kidnapping is siding with your attackers-- they are admitting they are bad guys.

If someone criticizes your act of self-defense by calling you a "white boy" with "white privilege" they are admitting they are vile racists. Those are purely racist terms. I don't know the guy who did the shooting. He may be a nasty character I would never get along with in person-- I've even heard he is pro-police! That's not relevant.

Of course, new information may come out and change my opinion, but as it stands this is how I see the Kenosha, Wisconsin riot shooting.

Even if he started it and was completely in the wrong, only a complete moron would continue to pursue him and threaten to use violence against an armed person. You're going to back him into a corner so that he believes he has no choice but to shoot you or die at your hands.

Play stupid games; win painful prizes.


Writing to promote liberty is my job.
YOU get to decide if I get paid.
I hope I add something you find valuable enough to support.


  1. Apparently the kid has a good lawyer; hopefully he'll also get a jury of non-brainwashed people. It's a shame that the rules for jury selection are stacked against independent thinkers: if asked during voir dire whether you would certainly vote to convict if the letter of the law was shown to have been violated, if you answer honestly, "Not necessarily", you'll be booted from the jury. With cause, meaning it doesn't count against peremptory challenges.

    1. They didn't specify *which* law. If they show that any VALID law was violated, I'd certainly vote to convict.

    2. "Valid law"... that's the catch that traps them.
