Instapundit--ANALYSIS: TRUE.

Jacob Sullum: The last thing considered by Dems in the Rittenhouse case was the actual law.

"...Rittenhouse’s political views and the merits of the gun laws that allowed him to carry that rifle likewise were irrelevant. So was the fact that Rittenhouse — who lived in Antioch, Ill., 16 miles from Kenosha — “crossed state lines,” a detail that critics of the verdict bizarrely emphasized.

What mattered, as far as the law was concerned, was whether Rittenhouse reasonably believed the use of deadly force was necessary each time he fired his gun. On that crucial issue, the jury heard credible testimony that supported Rittenhouse’s self-defense claims.

The commentariat has skulls full of mush, and even the ones with law degrees seldom have any interest in thinking like a lawyer.---Posted by
