    Instead of putting the burden of proof of proving self-defense beyond a reasonable doubt on the defense, Wisconsin law puts the burden of proof on the prosecution.


What you just said is terrifying. The burden of proof is ALWAYS on the prosecution. "Innocent until proven guilty" - 6th Amendment

"In a criminal case, the prosecution bears the burden of proving that the defendant is guilty beyond all reasonable doubt. This means that the prosecution must convince the jury that there is no other reasonable explanation that can come from the evidence presented at trial."

    Wiping off graffiti requires a rifle, eh? And so why did Rittenhouse lie about being an EMT?


It does when violent people get mad that you're wiping their graffiti off. And how is your second sentence not a non sequitur?

    I know you hate the left, but protests move the needle and the left will continue to protest injustices like the racism that you can't see. Protests can be messy and unfortunately, people either involved in the protests or not involved in the protests can take advantage and loot during protests. In any case, the left's protests have not resulted in anything nearly as despicable as the right's January 6 rioting, but I don't see you posting your concern about that.


You're entitled to a despicable opinion of the left's innocence relative to the right's. Thousands of leftwing riots vs. one riot is what it all boils down to. Other than January 6, name me one rightwing riot within, oh, the last 30 years.
