    Hey all, just a little update.

    We have moved servers and as a result, we are now under a new URL and a new name, we are now Irishpolitics.net. Please change your bookmarks and update how you get to this site.

    Our new URL is

    www.irishpolitics.net

    The old URL will become obsolete over the coming week.

    We will also be upgrading the site software to the latest version but this will be done over the coming weeks, once everyone is comfortable with the new URL.

    Sorry for any inconvenience.

[MOD] - sometimes a moderator will unapprove a post so that the moderator team can decide whether to leave it, edit it, ask the poster to edit it or delete it.
And for the first few posts a newly joined member will be pre-moderated - to avoid spamming or troublemaking. If the Posts are unacceptable then they will not appear on the site. [/MOD]

He needs to show it then. If Rittenhouse were black they'd have riddled him.

Why...? this is a debating forum not a circle jerk backslapping one and we all have different points of view and political ideologies .....

Jaysus has said consistantly from the start even when hounded after numerous posts to clarify that he thinks Rittenhouse should behind bars and that the reasons he isn't is because the prosecution were woefully inept........At the end of the day it was the jury who let him go not the judge or anyone else on the evidence they were presented with .....

Maybe we should give the yanks the expertise of our Special Criminal Court now that all sides of the political spectrum here now seem to be happy with it these days and do away with all that ould getting judged by twelve of your peers nonsense altogether ........

He thinks the police would've welcomed an armed black man into their ranks they were so terrified. You agree with that?

You do realise that Black and Hispanic members of the police in the USA are armed?

But your attempts to introduce straw men and to tilt as windmills suggests you realise that your main argument has not held up
Asking Franzoni what he thinks of what you say Jaysus thinks shows desperation.

He seems to be agreeing with him that if Rittenhouse were black the police would've welcomed him. I think most people know that's nonsense.

It is still speculation and completely irrelevant to the discussion as to whether or not the boy is a "murderer".
Just because you of all people think that doesn't make it true. Its very relevant in an increasingly racist society like America.

The cops that were there let him walk through their lines after shooting someone. Perfectly normal.

Shit happens..... life isn't always fair and bad people don't always get what's coming to them........ accusing other posters who have already stated on many occasions that this fella should behind bars isn't progressing the debate just and round in circles with you and a few others trying to justify in your own heads that people who disagree with you are dis,dat or the h'other......

I despair at some of the comments on this thread, there appears to be a profound lack of critical thinking and people tend to politicalise the event.

This chap articulates a more nuanced perspective on the tragic circumstances on the night in question.
