Lessons Learned From the Rittenhouse Case

Lessons Learned From the Rittenhouse Case

 

I think the biggest takeaway from this case other than being prepared for the legal fallout of a self-defense case in the 21st century America can be summed up with two points.

  • AVOIDANCE

Avoid DANGEROUS Situations and STUPID People, and yes, this mean RIOTS.

Yes, I agree with the author that a 17-year old kid with an AR-15 does not need to be in the middle of a full blown riot, but in all fairness, does an ADULT ARMED CITIZEN need to be there either?

I mean unless it’s a situation where they are TRAPPED inside their vehicle or business and are in FEAR for their lives, but the fact of the matter is the law is not going to smile upon you grabbing up your rifle and going to defend your town from the lefty marxist/anarchist assholes trying to burn it down. I would agree it’s the noble and decent thing to do, and we all may find ourselves doing it pretty soon when the hammer eventually drops and the rule of law shits the bed, but right now in the present situation, legally it’s just not SMART!

  • DE-ESCALATION

I think anybody would agree that Rittenhouse tried several times to De-Escalate the situation, both VERBALLY and by RETREATING. From a legal standpoint this helped Kyle’s case IMMENSELY because it showed he was not the PRIMARY aggressor. Now I am not saying you should always by default seek to retreat from a situation before using FORCE or DEADLY FORCE to defend yourself, circumstances will dictate that, but in most cases including the often forgotten case of Jake Gardner, De-Escalation is the PRIMARY reason WHY DEADLY FORCE was JUSTIFIED. As with Rittenhouse, the aggressor was intent in their mission to harm Gardner, thus, he had no choice but to shoot him. The only difference was Gardner shot a black thug instead of three white ones like Rittenhouse and we all know what that means in Woke FUSA.

Train Often and Realistically, it’s the only way to stay Prepared!

So many things went wrong here.
In the 21st Century, Part of being a Responsible ARMED  citizen is knowing the law and also having good legal representation to start with. The reality however is decent lawyers cost money and the everyday joe cannot afford one typically. If this poor guy would have had a decent lawyer at the beginning he would have never had to spend 5 years of his life wrongfully imprisoned.

U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- On 20 August 2015, in Brevard County, Florida, John DeRossett, 55, shot and severely wounded a Brevard County sheriff’s deputy.

Police claimed they told the niece they were police officers as they grabbed her. She called 911 during or immediately after the firefight, and told the dispatcher she did not know who the men who grabbed her were.

The deputies had no warrant to arrest Mary Ellis.

Criminals often claim to be police to attempt to get compliance. The deputies never told DeRossett they were police.

Why would he be under obligation to believe them, unless they presented credentials or other convincing proof they were operating under lawful authority?

DeRossett was held in jail for nearly five years.

In August of 2018, at trial, his lawyer presented the defense that he was…

Court upholds Right of Armed Citizen to Shoot a Police Officer in Defense

This man spent Five Years of his life in Jail for acting in Reasonable Self-Defense against a cop who did not follow the rules.

This part bears repeating:

The agents of the government are not supposed to be our masters. They are supposed to be our servants.

When agents of the government act as criminals, they should not be surprised when citizens treat them as criminals. When they disregard due process, they should lose immunity for their actions.

The case shows why the Stand Your Ground law was needed. Warrants are not only to protect the accused. Properly used, they also protect police.  If the officer had a warrant, had knocked on the door and presented it, it is highly likely he would not have been shot.
