This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

The RPGPundit's Own Forum Rules
This part of the site is controlled by the RPGPundit. This is where he discusses topics that he finds interesting. You may post here, but understand that there are limits. The RPGPundit can shut down any thread, topic of discussion, or user in a thread at his pleasure. This part of the site is essentially his house, so keep that in mind.

The process is the punishment, even if acquitted.
Which sucks egregiously.

True, but allegedly Nick Sandmann's attorneys are coming to Rittenhouse's defense.

"If there is something I can do, Kyle will not need to pay me," Linn tweeted. "God has blessed me with enough & enough is always enough. These charges must be dismissed as video clearly shows justified acts of self-defense. When dismissed, accusers should be held accountable & they should pay."

AKA, hang in their Kyle. Once the criminal charges are done, you gonna be picking out beach houses like Sandmann.

BTW, that link has CRAZY info from the mighty Andy Ngo. According to Ngo, all three of the bullet catchers had criminal records.

Plus the friend of the one with one arm said his friend regrets not being able to kill Kyle. Me thinks this kid's self defense suddenly went from strong to unassailable.

They say they haven't even gotten in touch with Rittenhouse's family. A lawyer announcing they're taking on a case, without even talking to the people they plan to defend, feels really skeevy.

Though the kid definitely needs some help. I used Google maps to look at his address, and it's a basic cheap apartment complex. His family does not have money.

It's remarkably common, and not even for high profile cases. In fact, we had a legal client contact us to look into duplicate representations and we found there's a company who produces boilerplate web pages based on news reports and funnels them to the websites of law firms so in 10 minutes, I found 8 lawyers all "representing" the same family as my client.

However, after the success of the Sandmann case and the pro bono offer, I'd be surprised if Kyle's family don't leap on the offer.

But I'm not a fan of the pre-announce either.

He didn't say he was going to represent the kid.  It's not his area of law.  He said that we would see to it that he got good representation--at the exact time that the GoFundMe account was being taken down to do the same thing.  It's a shot across the bow--this kid is going to get real representation despite the lawfare directed against him.

You mean how the coroner just stated Floyd died from all the garbage he'd shot up, including enough fentanyl to kill a man?

This is big. They pushed the narrative that Chauvin murdered him due to racism, and this is going to be a golden ticket to finding him Not Guilty.
But the narrative is bigger than any facts, and the riots when Chavuin gets off are very likely to make what we've seen so far look like a birthday party.
The notion of an exclusionary and hostile RPG community is a fever dream of zealots who view all social dynamics through a narrow keyhole of structural oppression.

I'm really getting tired of GFM's bullshit. They play favorites and it's blatantly obvious where their loyalties lie.

You fool. This is exactly what they want. Divide and conquer. Mobs of angry civilians blasting at each other.

Read the thread. Please. It's pretty on the nose regarding the 'vast divide' now.

Of course civilians should defend themselves and their communities. The hour is fast approaching. I hope the government crushes them. However, as we have seen, the government at various levels has been infiltrated by fucking Communists, which derail and pervert justice, and seek to oppress good citizens. In chaotic, dangerous, increasingly lawless times--and environments--this is precisely what the 2nd Amendment is for.

So, the Marxists and rioters get what's coming to them.

Then we're fucked. The solution for this guy is to get a shotgun and blast everyone who disagrees with him politically. Do it now while he has the element of surprise.

I really don't want that for America, and I'll fight, however hopeless it may be, for de-escalation.

You fucking pussy. You gave up on rational discussion for infantile insults long before this. Don't pretend you care about it when you agree with something.
