PostRittenhouse is Not a "Punk" (Francisco Wong-Diaz, USA, 11/24/21 3:52 am)
David Duggan should notice that the opposite occurs in many Democratic-controlled cities like San Francisco, Portland, Los Angeles, Chicago, etc., where Blacks and other minorities are released without bail after committing felonies.
Look at the case of Waukesha (Wisconsin), where despite its mostly GOP government the elected officials had kowtowed to the woke mob and released someone with a long history of criminal behavior so he could then kill a bunch of people.
Regarding JE's response--the "punk" is actually a nursing student at Arizona State and he should also look at the widely available footage of BLM Marxist rioters wearing camo and carrying AR-15s.
JE comments: Rittenhouse sort of "goes" to Arizona State--it's an online program. His latest plan is to change his name and pursue in-person nursing studies. Punk or no punk, I hope I never have to put my life in his caring hands.
Rittenhouse's Online Studies
(Francisco Wong-Diaz, USA

Re Rittenhouse's online studies: There are now thousands of Americans holding online graduate and undergraduate degrees. I will not challenge their validity or quality, but as a traditionalist I value more personal class attendance and teaching.
After working on a Juris Doctor at UC Berkeley and Masters and PhD Degrees at University of Michigan, I appreciate the difference of being able to "press the flesh."
JE comments: We're on the same page here, Francisco. Online education is not my cup of tea, although I will acknowledge that you can learn anything on YouTube. Just yesterday I figured out how to purge and reset a computer, without calling in the specialists. Another pedagogical triumph for the 'Tube. Otherwise here in Delaware, I would have had to go to Hunter Biden's computer guy.
The skinny on Rittenhouse's studies: He enrolled just last month in a non-degree program through Arizona State. The University is careful to point out that Rittenhouse has neither applied nor been admitted as a regular student. Given the timing, I suspect he became a "student" on his lawyer's advice, to make him seem like a wholesome, normal kid.
