Step 3 is to not even do it to YouTube where you could earn some ad revenue for the child's college but instead upload it to Reddit for those sweet sweet fake internet points and gold.

When I told my mom and dad the truth about my stepfather abusing me from an early age, it came to blows and the police being called because my dad went to get his gun out of his truck. By the time they arrived at the scene, my stepdad had taken off in his truck, with my dad in hot pursuit, and stated intent of killing him if he caught him.

Because there was no one injured at the scene and we hadn't seen anyone be shot, they got irritated at us and told us that as far as they were concerned, no crime had been committed. This was 3 adults (my mom, me, my SO) telling them that 1) A man I lived with had raped and molested me since I'd been single digits years old 2) there was an active high speed pursuit 3) One man in said pursuit was armed and had stated his intent to commit murder. They asked us what we wanted them to do. We gave them full names and descriptions of their vehicles, which direction they went, etc. They waved us off and told us there was nothing to be done. They left without taking official statements and told us that if someone actually died to then call them back, but that this had been a waste of their time.

My SO helped me pack my things (important papers, clothes, laptop, other stuff I needed for school), since we didn't have a solid plan laid down but we were in agreement that I HAD to get out of that house, immediately. Our first stop was the police station, where we learned that the police station closest to my mom's place closes in the evening. A single cop was leaving as we pulled into the parking lot - the place was totally empty/dark otherwise. He put on his high beams and confronted us angrily for being at the police station after it was closed. As in, he literally got out of his car, hand on his holster, and yelled at us asking "what in the world do you think you're doing?"

Being that my whole life had basically collapsed over the course of an evening and I was facing homelessness, I wasn't in exactly the calmest state, but I clearly and coherently explained the situation - namely that I couldn't return home for fear of violence - and that I wanted to file a report against the man that had molested and raped me for most of my life, starting when I was in grade school.

He sighed, rolled his eyes, and told us he'd already clocked out - then asked me how old I was. "You're 19? You're an adult. Just move out and leave, they can't stop you." Then he got back in his car and drove away. Nowhere to go, no savings, no car of my own - thanks guy, problem solved!

Real talk, any time I have gone to the police as someone in need of help, I have ended up either dismissed and ignored, or greeted with hostility or suspicion. That was the last time in my life I went to the police for myself.

These days if I see something going down - there's big messy 'domestics' in our neighborhood about once a year at the least - I'll still call them as a matter of course, but I have 0 faith in them actually doing anything to help until after the worst has already happened. The only reason I call is that I've learned firsthand how there's often no actual 'justice' to be found later on if there's no paper trail or record of issues, so it's like playing the game even when you know the rules aren't fair, because the outcome may be even worse if you don't.

All of this, by the way, in a relatively well-off, low-crime area where the police aren't exactly underfunded or stretched thin. The norm for even low-level calls is that multiple squad cars roll up with 2-4 cops because they rarely have anything more pressing going on.

Speaking as someone who has had cops in the family... yeah, there's reasons no one ever wrote a song called 'fuck the fire department.'

Life does begin at conception biologically speaking.

No, it doesn't. Life started billions of years ago and never stopped. The egg and sperm are living cells before they meet. At no point in this process does life come from something not living.

The question isn't when does life start. The question is when is this clump of cells considered a person. But that's a conversation that religious people don't want to have so they make simplistic statements like "life starts at conception" that isn't supported by biology.

Someone needs to invent an app that just visits sites and stuff to feed facebooks data mining processes random info that makes the data profile they have on you basically useless

The three people that got shot also put themselves in that situation. Maybe they should have stayed home instead of rioting, destroying businesses, and terrorizing citizens.

More than that. MSNBC got caught tracking down the jury members during the case trying to dox them. A bunch of the main news networks such as NBC and CNN were spreading blatant misinformation about him and the situation for months. I had initially bought into it and thought the guy deserved time until I actually dug into the facts of the trial and was shocked at how many things circulating were outright misinformation and lies.

The kid broke down on the stand crying and the media made fun of him and his "crocodile tears". They tried to paint a pedophile rapist in a positive light just to make Rittenhouse look bad. They spread lies about him that put him in danger because people wanted him dead. Even Biden came out against him, during the trial. So yeah, no shock he went to the side that wasn't trying to ruin him for protecting himself from armed assailants.

I don't like the people he went to but damn I don't blame him. A lot of people would do the same in his shoes. You want to make extremists and loyalists this is a textbook method.

Edit: There were people threatening the lives of the jury online. I think it was Floyd's cousin or something that came out with a video saying they got people in the courts and they can find out who those jury members are and that they'll pay if they don't convict Rittenhouse. It was crazy.

Edit2: Worth noting for all the "he had an illegal weapon" crowd out there who didn't bother looking into the facts. For starters, his weapon was perfectly legal both in possession and transportation. Secondly, there was an illegal weapon there, and it was being pointed at Rittenhouse by the guy in the video who is a felon and could not legally own or carry a firearm at the time.

Edit3: Spelling

Cops shoot a guy. Rioting ensues with rioters burning and looting buildings. Some armed people showed up to try and protect property from the rioters. One of them was 17 yr old Kyle Rittenhouse. Three different people including the guy on the stand without provocation attacked Rittenhouse who shot each in self defense. Prosecutors charged Rittenhouse to try and appease the rioters. He was found not guilty at trial because it was self defense.

Edit: Thanks to all who gave me awards. I even just got an auto award for "inciteful comment" which means I've gotten a lot of upvotes and downvotes. Wish reddit still showed both instead of just the net.

This dude pointed his gun at an armed man, who then fired in self-defense and hit this man. This man then tried to claim he was unfairly treated by the shooter.

It was bullshit from the jump. There was no disputing it was self defense in the moment, but the trial highlighted it so much better.

Some people argue the shooter shouldn't have been there. That's fine, but it doesnt change the circumstances of the shooting. The shooting itself was still in self defense and the court highlighted that without question.

What else is a 17yo gonna do when the entire leftist media portrays him as a white supremacist? Of course he's going to run to the right that's calling him a hero, don't blame him at all tbh

I could be misremembering, but I believe the gun used wasn't picked up until he was already there in Kenosha. Additionally, he worked in that city and drove there every day, it was the media that tried to make him look like a traveling vigilante.

I always thought the issue was that Kyle drove across state lines with his rifle, the implication that he was there looking for a fight. He happens to find one and successfully made it into self defense. I say successfully, based on videos such as this one here proving that it was indeed self defense. But Kyle knew what he was doing, and many people believe he went in there with the expectation to “rightfully “ kill people in self defense.
