Enough with the arguments about Rittenhouse being a vigilante and how vigilantism is bad etc.

Sorry, I’m not buying it.

I don’t have the figures to hand but I’m willing to bet that in the end, the vigilantes are doing a better job of it because they have a greater risk.

Think about it now: when is the last time you heard of anyone in government paying for screwing up somebody’s life unjustly? No I’m not talking about government coughing up taxpayer money to make the problem go away. Talking about actual jail time for the perpetrators who supposedly represent the government. I don’t recall anybody, any prosecutor anywhere being sent to prison for such an act.

All they need to do is waive the magic wand of government over it, and all the guilt goes away. We’ve all seen it happen.

We can get into the specifics of government malfeasance on a number of levels at some point in the future, and I don’t doubt for a second that that subject will come up over the next year or two given who we have in Congress and in the White House at the moment

But let’s put all the other arguments aside for the moment and concentrate on this glaring fact:

If the government were actually doing its job in the city that day, Kyle Rittenhouse and others like him wouldn’t have felt the need to respond as they did.
