    Haven't been following the case much, but would I be broadly in the right ball park by assuming he's off on a combination of bad public prosecutors, well paid (by 3rd parties) defence lawyers, a bias jury & legal pedantry making it hard to get the conviction they were going for? Last I read about it I remember there being accusations that the defence had used their jury picking veto thing to deselect any black jurors they could.

    You're probably confusing this case with the Arbery case when it comes to the jury veto thing, but otherwise, that's a fair assessment.

    From what ive seen, it is a combination of bad prosecutor going for premediated murder charge, and the laws just not being adapt at dealing with "intent to lethal self-defence".

    Ritterhouse is a shithead, but especially after the testimonies, the law just doesnt have a way to deal with what he did. He put himself in that situation, with a lethal tool in hand, but the events as they played out did not break the law.


    Ive also noticed a wave of manipulative solcial media posts relating to the case. For example, the photo of him "laughing and taking a selfie with the judge" actually was doctored and they were watching video evidence on the same screen.

    Not being a black man helped him tremendously too

    The judge was also as about as insane as the prosecution.

    I have a feeling that the todays "lets use a car as a lethal weapon" case is connected to Ritterhouse case.

    The BBC article quoted the police as saying the driver was "fleeing another scene". I dont think it has anything to do with protests or Ritterhouse, he was on the run and panicked when the parade blocked his way.

    Yeah, seems he was on bail or something. Either way not related (at least until further notice, coz who the fuck knows these days).

    Not been following the news online but Dutch 8' o clock news is saying 'No terror, he was on the run'. Must have had a long head start from the police cars i guess. Also crack, he was on crack (the usual black dude excuse amirite? maybe thats to much Chapelle)

    Well at least the CIA has one lasting legacy on domestic politics.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    A ‘minor accident’ on a Florida road escalated. Now a pregnant librarian is dead, cops say: https://www.miamiherald.com/news/sta...256086977.html

    A case of road rage in Central Florida left one of the motorists, a mother-to-be, dead last Saturday evening.

    According to the Orange City Police Department, the incident began around 5 p.m. Nov. 20 when Sara Nicole Morales, 35, hit Andrew Derr’s motorcycle with her blue Kia. It is unclear why she hit his bike.

    Though Derr was not injured or ejected in the “minor accident,” he said he followed Morales to get her information for law enforcement after she drove away from the scene, according to investigators.

    Derr, along with two witnesses, verbally attempted to have Morales stop at the intersection while she was making a left turn, but she refused, says a social media release.

    Morales drove to her home and went inside. Derr and the witnesses followed her. They stopped in the roadway in front of her home and called 911, say investigators. Morales re-emerged a short time later with a firearm and pointed it at them, continues the post.

    Derr, who has a valid Florida concealed weapons permit, drew his concealed handgun and fired, striking Morales “multiple times.”

    The motorcyclist remained on scene, where Orange City Fire Rescue responded to provide medical care. Morales was transported to a local hospital where she died from her injuries.

    The woman, a Volusia County librarian, was reportedly four to five months pregnant and leaves behind an 11-year-old daughter and a fiancé.

    As of Wednesday, no one had been charged in this case, though police say an investigation is ongoing.

    In newly released bodycam video, Derr can be seen on the ground.

    “That girl tried to kill me,” he says. “She pointed a gun at me. I’m so sorry.”
    Okay, NRA, which one was the "good guy with a gun"? No peeking at their skin color!

    That triggered a memory of a scene from McCabe & Mrs Miller. Bad guy fools naive kid into unholstering and drawing his gun, giving him the legal right to fire. Well-regarded Robert Altman movie, but personally I rank it lower in his catalogue. I found it distinctive the way Altman filmed the boy's death, a heartless and senseless death similar to the news story.

    Deranged American thinking where you have a road rage incident and then wait on the driver's property until the crazy lady comes out with a gun, and then kill them and their baby in "self-defense".

    They're American so probably fair to assume they're all mentally ill and heavily medicated
