just going to point out, said with like 95% sureness lol, this is a kv-2, one of the coolest and dumbest tanks ever designed and if you have any vague interest in learning about wacky soviet wargear designs thats a good place to dig your claws into as its one of the more fun ones in my opinion.

Depends on whose decision it was that it’s there, if its private companies acting in an altruistic way rather than the government spending tax money on helping people then that’s very much so not socialism. I assume by the fact it’s a a trash can in public it’s likely government property rather than company property but there are notable cases of private companies doing the city governments job for them because it never getting done hurts profits more than just doing it yourself.
It could also be that the company that made them added that as a feature on their own and the government bought the cheapest acceptable option and it happened to be one with those things.

He later claimed the gun went off by itself without him firing it. It's a single action revolver, that means you cant pull the trigger until its cocked back.
Before he made that claim, before he blamed the gun itself going off without him doing anything to fire it, I was fairly on board with "negligence of many parties and baldwin trusting too much"
After he made the claim? thats fishy, thats suspicious. That's overspinning your defense. No way did the gun go off by itself, and why would he lie about it going off by itself if there wasnt something wrong with the whole thing? if it wasnt worse than what it seems?

Not to mention it gives the city basically a 100% chance if having rotten fruit smell anywhere they do that during part of the year since there will basically always be missed fruit, misshapen fruit no one grabs, etc and no one is going to willingly clear it out before they rot.

If you can find a straw that can maintain shape in prolonged contact with lava and you can make it go without dying from the superheated pressurised air flow you are making It’ll still stick to your throat D:

Technically you can’t drink lava, it would never make it down your throat. It would stick to you and cool to a solid state inside your mouth and the start of your throat but you’d probably be dead from a boiled brain before that even finishes happening

The fact you think he wouldn’t have been attacked if he was an easier target is fucking bonkers. Those people were actively destroying the city, those people hospitalised a police officer day one with a brick. To think they would have allowed someone they saw as the enemy to exist near them if they were undefended and unarmed is fucking insane

THe person that he claims pointed a gun at him before he shot testified in court that he was telling the truth, testified in court that he aimed his gun at rittenhouse first.

you dont go into a riot zone without a gun, if you do you are an idiot, period. If he had gone without a gun he would be dead.
Even if we assume your logic is valid, your logic says that he would be dead if he hadnt brought his gun because your logic applies to the other people with guns. Even if we assume your flawed logic as correct he would have been killed.
which is it, you cant have both your logic applying and your logic not applying.
Either bringing a gun into the riot zone means you actively went in premeditating killing someone or it doesn't. If it does then kyle would be dead if he went in without a gun. If it doesn't then kyle going in with a gun isnt suspect. Do you double down on your own logic or accept that your logic is flawed? both contradict your proposed end result.

again, if you go into a riot area, one that xvarnah said was described as a warzone by cops nearby, without a gun you are an idiot.
Also, "The whole thing isn't about him "defending himself", it's bringing a gun to a volatile situation with knowledge that either he or someone else was going to die. That's the intent, knowing he would have to use it eventually during the night. "
this is fallacious and assumes facts not in evidence. The point of bringing a gun is aggression deterrent. If he had gone in there cleaning graffiti and rendering aid to the wounded without a gun he would be dead right now. There is no reason to assume the people that acted aggressively towards him would not have done so if he had no way to defend himself.
One of them had a gun too.
By your logic, the fact the other dude had a gun shows intent to shoot and kill someone, you cannot apply that logic to rittenhouse without applying it to the other guy too, meaning rittenhouse would be dead unarmed with your logic

This kind of “paradoxical” riddle style question is rather fun.

The correct answer is that you have a 0% chance of being correct, there is no way to answer this multiple choice question without being marked incorrectly.
If there is only one correct answer then the answer must be 25%.
since there are 2 25% answers then that cannot be correct therefor an amount of answers not equalling 1 must be correct.
This logic applies to the 50% as well, as if 50% is correct then there must be 2 correct answers and since there is only one answer with 50% then it cannot be correct so the amount of answers that are correct but not equal 1 or 2.
This makes 3/4 answers incorrect leaving us with only one possible answer left and we can already rule out any amount above 4 as there are only 4 answers possible and we’ve ruled out only one answer being correct making 60% incorrect both of that and as 3/5ths is not possible in multiple choice with 4 answers
This leaves the only possibility being; it’s impossible to get this question correct with the options allowed.

Hell, there isn’t a small amount of people whose thoughts are so extreme as to say that that at the point it became an arson party burning down buildings and destroying cars that it became an act of domestic terrorism and warranted a direct lethal response. They tried to blow up a gas station for god sake

If you go into a riot area occupied by people claiming to be of a group that has caused previous riots in which people have died and you DONT bring a gun you are an idiot.
Also, as to the last thing you said, a VERY large amount of people the world around would say yes, buildings and cars are more valuable than the lives of people maliciously trying to destroy said property.
Ask the question in reverse. How many resources stolen from others is the Maximum acceptable loses to save a malicious strangers life. Would you give up your life savings and any chance at a safe or stable life for years to come, willfully accepting grief and suffering for years, potentially decades, to save someone actively trying to ruin you? Would you take from another and give away someone else’s life savings and life work, would you doom someone else to that same fate to save one person actively trying to cause grief and suffering upon others?
