The Issue: Protesters who broken personal property in Queens after Kyle Rittenhouse was discovered not responsible.
A mob of 40 “protesters” descended on a Queens neighborhood and destroyed property in the identify of justice for the two folks Kyle Rittenhouse shot in self-defense by (“A liberal dose of Kenosha outrage,” Nov. 20).
Police trailed them as they tore down American flags and broken vehicles indiscriminately.
The icing on the cake was the assertion that each one 5 of these arrested “were released pending future court dates,” giving them the alternative to maintain extra “peaceful protests.” I suppose we will all thank our state legislators for passing the be-kind-to-criminals laws.
Mayor de Blasio wants to be charged for inciting a riot (“Above the law, lefties?” Bob McManus, Nov. 20).
His response to the Rittenhouse not-guilty verdict was: “We can’t let this go.” Then rioters stampeded a Queens neighborhood.
One of the individuals, Charles Edmunds, is a graduate of Rutgers University and now a middle-school trainer in Freehold, NJ.
He must be held accountable as nicely. These aren’t function fashions. It’s no surprise we live in “Zoo York.”
Kudos to Mayor-elect Eric Adams, who stated that if folks need to protest, they shouldn’t be marching by means of residential neighborhoods destroying property and making a riot (“Adams blasts verdict mayhem,” Nov. 21).
If you need to deal with grievances, deal with them to authorities places of work and politicians, and let odd residents lead their lives in peace. He echoes what many people consider. People have a proper to protest, however do it legally and in areas that don’t disrupt odd lives.
This is the sort of protest that led to Kenosha and other people going out and shopping for weapons as a result of they felt that they had to defend themselves.
Hopefully with Adams as mayor, the feeling that folks want to defend themselves as a result of the police weren’t doing so underneath de Blasio will disappear, and regulation and order can be re-established in New York.
Some 40 largely masked city terrorists invade the peaceable middle-class neighborhood of Middle Village, Queens, in response to the Rittenhouse verdict, damaging vehicles and mailboxes in addition to vandalizing American flags displayed in entrance of individuals’s houses, whereas attacking police with rubbish pails.
The penalties? A mere 5 are arrested and promptly launched, together with the schoolteacher who got here armed with a hatchet and a hammer. No surprise the metropolis goes down the tubes.
These left-wing ruffians, little question impressed by Comrade de Blasio’s battle cry that Rittenhouse’s acquittal should not stand, have been most likely quickly laughing and celebrating over lattes at some cafe in Bushwick or Greenpoint, having struck a blow in opposition to the hated white center class.
Finally a mayor-elect who will hopefully get up to the bands of roving miscreants.
One protester’s father described his son as a superb, passionate man. Really? Your son is a menace and must be held answerable for the wanton destruction of houses and vehicles. Maybe pricey previous dad ought to foot the invoice the subsequent time the fools lay waste to a neighborhood.
The jury spoke. We settle for these choices, whether or not you want them or not.
De Blasio’s response to Rittenhouse being acquitted, “This verdict is disgusting,” is simply one other instance of why his time as mayor can’t finish quickly sufficient.
He and each different self-serving, cowardly politician who ordered the police to stand down throughout the rioting and looting in the identify of “peaceful protests” ought to look in the mirror.
Those politicians’ disdain for the well being and security of the folks they have been sworn to defend led to Rittenhouse patrolling the streets of Kenosha. Next time, assist the police and allow them to do their job.
