Kyle Rittenhouse is still no hero

by Rod Williams, Nov. 21, 2021- I am pleased that Rittenhouse was found not guilty, but I agree with this article.  He should have stayed home.  Last summer when BLM and Antifa were terrorizing Nashville, I went armed. If I would have found myself in the midst of a mob attempting to do me bodily harm, I would have used deadly force to protect myself. However, I avoided areas where there were protests. I avoided the interloop of the interstates.  I figured a route of non-interstate roads provided opportunities to avoid the conflict if the terrorist decided to block a roadway.  I am not a coward, but I think it prudent to avoid conflict rather than seek it out. I am not ready to abandon civil society.  I am not ready to take the law into my own hands. Rittenhouse's not guilty verdict should not be interpreted as a call for an armed citizenry to confront rioters. We still have the ballot box and when city or state officials do not do their job by maintaining order we can vote them out of office.
