Autopsy Results From Killings By White Vigilante Kyle Rittenhouse Show Massive Damage To Bodies

This is what happens when a 17-year-old with an AR-15 is let loose on the streets after having been hyped up on right-wing rhetoric and Donald Trump worshipping.  What could go wrong?  (Readers to this blog know that so much has gone wrong with those who have an AR-15.)

Charges against Rittenhouse were officially filed in Wisconsin on Thursday, and included two homicide counts and one attempted homicide count. Rittenhouse was also charged with two counts of recklessly endangering safety and possession of a dangerous weapon by a juvenile.

A criminal complaint filed Thursday identified the two people killed as Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, and the injured victim as Gaige Grosskreutz.

Rosenbaum followed Rittenhouse and threw a plastic bag at him in the parking lot of the auto repair shop Car Source Auto Service, according to the complaint. Based on a video prosecutors reviewed, Rosenbaum approached Rittenhouse following a loud bang. After four more bangs, Rosenbaum fell to the ground. After allegedly shooting Rosenbaum, Rittenhouse made a phone call and said, “I just killed somebody,” the complaint said. An autopsy found that Rosenbaum was shot five times — in the right groin, back, left hand, left thigh and right side of his forehead, according to the complaint.

Rittenhouse was then chased by protestors and fell, according to the complaint. At that point, Huber tried to pull Rittenhouse’s gun away when he was allegedly shot and killed, according to the complaint. Rittenhouse then allegedly shot Grosskreutz, who had his hands in the air, in the right arm, according to the complaint.

Huber’s autopsy showed he had a gunshot wound to his chest that perforated his heart, aorta, pulmonary artery and right lung, the complaint said.

The long gun allegedly used in the shootings was a Smith & Wesson AR-15 style, .223 rifle, court records show.

What Type Of Mother Does White Vigilante Kyle Rittenhouse Have?

Time and again this blog points out that parental responsibility is mighty important in raising a family, as I did earlier this month.  In fact, my #9 item listed stated “No guns or other weapons are allowed in the house.”

Imagine that?

It is not shocking what happens when sound parenting is discarded like last night’s spent shells.  When there are young people who commit heinous crimes, as we witnessed this week from Kyle Rittenhouse,  we always want to know more about the family unit which produced such an outcome.

We do know from social media today that Kyle never had a chance at growing up in a healthy-minded home. The image that struck me from his youth is this one.

We know what happens when children are provided with positive role models and uplifting experiences.  We also know that happens when troubled parents, and sometimes single ones as in this case, are unable to achieve more with parenting than the breeding process.  Bravo, the plumbing worked!   But you made a mess of everything else.

The bottom line question for Kyle’s mother is rather simple and straightforward.

How is it that your 17-year-old high-school dropout committed a double murder in a different state with a military assault weapon he was not legally allowed to carry? 

I await an indictment or charges brought against the female ‘adult’ who calls herself  ‘mom’.

Meanwhile Kyle Rittenhouse has been rightly charged.

1)1st-Degree Reckless Homicide

2)1st-Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety.

3)1st-Degree Intentional Homicide

4) Attempt 1st-Degree Intentional Homicide

5)1st-Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety

6) Possession Dangerous Weapon (Misd.)

Night Four Of Republican National Convention 2020: Featuring Richard Nixon

For the Republican National Convention this year I am featuring a Republican each day from the pages of history who acted in exactly the reverse of Donald Trump.

Monday I  focused on the need for character and shone a light on Gerald Ford.  On Tuesday Abraham Lincoln was featured with an eye on leadership and empathy.  Wednesday I wrote about the need for strong international alliances highlighted by Dwight Eisenhower.  Today I present a trait that any president must possess if wishing to be not only an informed leader but a well-rounded person.  Richard Nixon proves my point.

It was Marcus Tullius Cicero who wrote, “A room without books is like a body without a soul.”

If there is one overarching quality that Donald Trump lacks it is a stunning dearth of curiosity about what he does not know and a total lack of interest in reading.  The absence of both has created what we see and hear on a daily basis from this White House.  The facts about Trump’s disdain for reading have been well-sourced and reported. 

“He didn’t process information in any conventional sense,” Wolff writes. “He didn’t read. He didn’t really even skim. Some believed that for all practical purposes he was no more than semi-­literate.”

Wolff quotes economic adviser Gary Cohn writing in an email: “It’s worse than you can imagine … Trump won’t read anything—not one-page memos, not the brief policy papers, nothing. He gets up halfway through meetings with world leaders because he is bored.”

While Trump and his allies, as well as some mainstream journalists, have attacked the accuracy of Wolff’s book, Trump’s allergy to reading is among the most fully corroborated assertions Fire and Fury makes.

Ahead of the election, the editors of this magazine wrote that the Republican candidate “appears not to read.” Before the inauguration, Trump told Axios, “I like bullets or I like as little as possible. I don’t need, you know, 200-page reports on something that can be handled on a page. That I can tell you.” In February, The New York Times reported that National Security Council members had been instructed to keep policy papers to a single page and include lots of graphics and maps.

Meanwhile, Richard Nixon was a highly cerebral and mentally cultivated man. Reading and learning were central to his life from an early age. In February 1972 Nixon spoke to the press about the upcoming history-breaking trip to Mainland China.

In mentioning Andre Malraux, I do not want to reflect on many of the other experts-and there are many experts in this field of China–whose books have been brought to my attention. I do not want to indicate I have read them all but I have been exposed to a great number. I asked him to come because there was an interesting coincidence.

In 1969, when I met with President de Gaulle in Paris, Mr. Malraux at that time was the Minister of Culture in the de Gaulle Cabinet. We had a discussion prior to the dinner on the subject of China generally, and I was particularly impressed with his analysis of the leaders. His book, at least the one I have read—he’s written many–but his book, the one I particularly refer to was his “Anti-Memoirs.” I would commend it to you not only for what it tells about China and its leaders, but also about France, its problems, and the whole World War II and post-World War II era.

But here it is essential to do an enormous amount of homework just to come up to the starting line. I don’t want to say that after having read as much as I have, and as much as I will be reading between now and the time we arrive, that I will be an expert, but at least I will be familiar with the men that we will be meeting and the problems that may be discussed.

We must never again allow anyone to sit in the Oval Office who does not have the desire to be a better person through the printed page.

International Students Remain In Our Lives, Manzoor From Pakistan Writes

I have posted from time to time about not only the importance of international students coming to our state and country for diplomatic and educational reasons but also about the personal connections we made with truly engaging people from around the world.

So it comes as no surprise that we were pleased for an update from Manzoor, a friend in Pakistan who wrote a note and sent some photos.   The same kindness and intelligence I knew from his time in our home continue to shine through in the following letter.  It is with these connections that we share lives at great distances, but more importantly, recognize how much we are all the same no matter where we call home.2

I am excited that Gregory and you are doing well. I can understand that now we are not as independent as we used to be. Things have changed altogether all around the world but let’s hope that the hard times will over soon so that we could at least be able to meet friends and family openly and enjoy some travel.

I feel so very sorry about the loss of lives in the US. This is a very difficult time indeed for many families. No one might have anticipated about the pandemic and that the entire world would shut down. I think we should all take it positive and should learn from this time at least to prepare ourselves for any situation and to look after the needy fellows.

Here in Pakistan, the death toll is not as high as in some other parts of the world but because of layoffs, people have suffered badly. The United States with its strong economy supports the companies and individuals to ensure the basic needs. We have a fragile economy but our prime minister is still trying hard to ensure possible support to organizations and families in dire need by providing some financial assistance.

My company has laid off 53% of employees so far and if it still gets worse, another phase of lay off will be considered. I have been retained so far.

Our offices were closed since March 20 and I was planning to rush to Hunza. But one of my brothers suffering from kidney infection came here for a treatment and I had to stay back for one month. Meher and I spent about a month and half in Hunza, enjoyed the weather, fresh fruits, and family gatherings, and of course our video projects. She has already uploaded the video we made on a local bread made of some medicinal herbs.

I hope you will like it. We had plans to do more videos but she was called to report in her office and we had to rush. However, we are now planning to go back in August to complete other projects. 

Stay safe.

Manzoor
