Kyle Rittenhouse Found Not Guilty For Wisconsin Murders

Kyle Rittenhouse

Unbelievable.

I said I wasn’t going to dive too much into this case because watching the trial was like watching a circus side show.

The judge, short of a few marbles, clearly and brazenly assisted the defense essentially swaying the jury and even allowing the defendant to draw jurors like bingo numbers.

On the end, KKKyle Rittenhouse was acquitted of ALL FIVE CHARGES and allowed to ride off into the sunset all smiles after killing 2 people and injuring a 3rd during the Jacob Blake protests in Kenosha.

Rittenhouse, then 17 years old, claimed he had traveled from his home in Antioch, Ill., to protect private property and help as a medic.

Amid protests that had turned violent and destructive, Rittenhouse fatally shot two men with an assault-style rifle.

My main issue is like most of America, I felt like Rittenhouse went to the protest with full intentions of causing more trouble. He claims he went as the “Good Samaritan” but he showed up with an AR-15 assault style rifle and 3 people ended up shot.

I could maybe understand if he was going to protect his own private property but he was not. He went to play vigilante. Had he never traveled 15-20 minutes to the scene to engage and antagonize the situation, none of this would have ever happened. The fact that he got away with killing people, claiming self defense, is what’s so mind blowing and damn right unfair.

Not even a slap on the wrist — a full acquittal of every charge, including first-degree intentional homicide, in a case that’s captivated, and divided, a nation.

What are your thoughts? Do you think the not guilty verdict is fair and appropriate in this case? Do you think Rittenhouse went to the protest with the intentions of rendering aid or murdering people?

Let me know what you think!

One Black Juror Selected for Ahmaud Arbery Murder Case; All Other Jurors White

The jury selection phase of the Ahmaud Arbery case is already proving to be a miscarriage of justice for Ahmaud. This trial hasn’t even began and it already appears to be headed in the wrong direction. One black juror was selected for the jury, all the others were white. Even the judge called the jury selection process “discriminatory”.

Let’s hope justice is served for Ahmaud Arbery who didn’t deserve his fate. For those who don’t remember, Ahmaud was jogging through a South Georgia neighborhood & subsequently hunted down and shot like a dog by two white men playing neighborhood “vigilantes”.

Ahmaud Arbery

CNN — After a long and contentious jury selection process in a coastal Georgia county in preparation for the trial for Ahmaud Arbery’s killing, a panel of 12 people was chosen Wednesday — consisting of one Black member and 11 White members. The jury was selected after a two-and-a-half-week selection process that ended with prosecutors for the state accusing defense attorneys of disproportionately striking qualified Black jurors and basing some of their strikes on race.

Judge Timothy Walmsley said the defense appeared to be discriminatory in selecting the jury but that the case could go forward.

“This court has found that there appears to be intentional discrimination.”

“One of the challenges that I think counsel recognized in this case is the racial overtones in the case. … This is sort of the continuation of a conversation that I think will continue for a long time, with respect to this case,” the judge said, but added that in Georgia, “all the defense needs to do is provide that legitimate, nondiscriminatory, clear, reasonably specific and related reason,” for why they struck a juror and he said the defense met that burden.

Two Connecticut Police Officers Accused of Patrolling While Drunk

The Insider — According to reports, two police officers in Connecticut resigned earlier this month after they were accused of drinking in their patrol cars and not responding to service calls while on duty.

CBS New York reported the two were suspended last year after they were discovered together at a hotel instead of working and drinking in a school parking lot.

According to CT Insider citing their arrest warrant, the duo was found by their supervisor on the night of October 9, 2020, and cops said they “were not in a condition to respond to calls for service.”

The warrant said that during their investigation, authorities also found broken beer bottles at the school that was linked to both officers.


Damn! Imagine getting pulled over and the police officer is completely trashed. Smh. Bad business.

Black Professionals Hesitant on Returning Back into Office Workplaces

CBS NEWS — Polls suggest some employees are content to be back at their desks, Black workers told CBS MoneyWatch that being in a predominantly White workplaces often exacts an emotional toll. Working from home offers a measure of inner peace and even helps them do their jobs better.

Such sentiments are common among people of color, including in corporate America. For decades, Black and Hispanic employees have reported feeling marginalized at work and being relegated to lower-paying roles even when their credentials qualify them for a higher-level position.

Black women, in particular, say a typical workday often requires looking past microaggressions from co-workers, ignoring flippant comments about their natural hairstyles or suppressing emotions lest they be labeled an “angry black woman.”


As a black woman and mid level professional in the Construction industry, I can attest that everything this article is stating is facts.

I started working from home approximately 2 years before Covid and I really can’t imagine ever going back into an office environment. The convenience & flexibility are definitely beneficial, but for me the privacy aspect is the main gain.

My staunch work ethic always allowed me to rise pretty fast within the ranks of the corporate world but ‘fitting in’ with various company cultures is something that I had a hard time adjusting to. I started my career very young, skipping college and joining the workforce. I did eventually go back to college 10 years post high school, so I didn’t have tolerance for the workplace shenanigans. I made sure I kept things social but I wasn’t there to meet friends or group chat. I just wanted to bury my head in my computer and get to work.

Working from home allows me the luxury of not having to physically see or entertain people daily. Working with people over the computer or phone is a piece of cake. Honestly I feel I am far more productive and I even find myself willingly working longer hours — to the benefit of the company.

What about you? Are you a professional who would rather work from home than going back into the office? Or would you rather go into the office environment daily or intermittently? Why or why not?

Lord today. Smh. I know it’s got to be extremely difficult dealing with the unruly side of today’s youth but damn! Buddy might want to find a new profession. Perhaps the WWE? A strip club bouncer?

Now had this been his own child I couldn’t have much of an opinion about him yolking the kid up but the fact that he lost his cool at school and he’s the Assistant Principal is what makes this story such an eye catching headline. Like dude, you can’t say what you’re thinking, especially to other people’s kids and in the world of cell phones you definitely can’t put hands on them. Apparently, he resigned. He’s lucky he didn’t go to jail.

Parents what would you do if this happened to your child at school?


The Daily Beast — An assistant principal in North Carolina who pulled a student to the ground has resigned but vowed to face off against the school district. “I am not afraid of people hearing the entire story of what recently transpired in the classroom at Knox,” Christopher McNeil, a former assistant principal at Knox Middle School in Salisbury, said in a statement.

McNeil resigned on Oct. 12 after a social media video showed him confronting a student who was cracking his knuckles. McNeil then hurled profane remarks at the child, telling him that if he continued, “I will beat the s— out of you … I’m going to wait for you to get up, and when you hit me, I’m going to lose my job, and they’re going to call the police.” McNeil then pulled the child to the ground, repeatedly calling him “crazy,” and had the child taken out of the classroom.

In a statement about McNeil’s departure, the Rowan-Salisbury School System said: “The safety of all students and staff are the highest priority of Rowan-Salisbury Schools.”
