Yes Judge Shroeder set more than just the tone but the standard by which he claims he lives and we all should. We should all live our lives like vigilante’s and simply as we “feel”.

“Raise your hand if you agree life is more important than property,” prosecutor Thomas Binger said to the jury in his closing arguments. “The only person who shot and killed anyone was the defendant. Yes, there was property damage. No one’s here to defend that. No one’s here to tell you it’s OK to commit arson or looting. No one’s here to tell you it’s okay to be rioters. … But what you don’t get to do is kill someone on the street for committing arson.” Yet thanks to this jury verdict, more people will undoubtedly try to.

Yes: One of the people Rittenhouse shot — Gaige Grosskreutz – was armed. I find that insufficient justification for the death of two other men. No, the legal argument failed. And that was the only argument jurors were ever going to hear in court. But it’s not the only question that you and I as American citizens have to wrestle with.
