Are you trying to create conflict where there is none?

They’ll be no parole for Brooks.

Only a nut would make this about race.

It does look as though Brooks was a racist, based on his FB entries, but this is assuming the reports were accurate.
I don't think they have been verified, since they were deleted, however.

He was probably a racist.

When I said only a nut would make it about race, I was speaking of the “stress of racism” causing the actions of Brooks, supposedly.

It is actually possible that a hatred of white people led to his actions—though this is not a certainty, by any means.

There is enough to *speculate* that his actions were due to his hatred of Caucasians.
Were there significant numbers of POC in the xmas parade?
Were there any?

I am only interested in the Truth.
I am not interested in making a case against him.

Things don't escape me. Please don't condescend to me by implying they do.

I'm more than capable of reading threads and posts, and having my own opinion on human behaviour.


It was in response to DW


Thanks for clarifying.

I don't want to speak for DW, but I'm quite sure nothing escapes her either.


It depends on how much attention I choose to pay, but in this case it hadn’t. Still, it was obvious to me I’m not making my point in the right way, so moving on.

The thing with skunks is that you can’t get too close or they will spray you. You choose the description; I’m just applying it. Literally. It may seem surprising given some of our conversations, but I prefer not to look for trouble.

He would surely have been remanded in New York State.

By the way: there is no death penalty in Wisconsin.


I’m guessing the bail guidelines are pretty strict. 5 dead = 5M. Rittenhouse was 2 dead = 2M. Obviously two cases isn’t enough to establish a pattern or prove a theory, but that correlation jumped out at me immediately.

Agreed. At some point people have to responsibility for where they put their pain and anger.

A reality-impairing mental illness could be different but we’re not seeing a trail suggesting any history of that.

I see that accusation made quite regularly (always without any supporting evidence), yet it is other portions of the population who tend to be the most prominent in taking such actions.
