anyone read the book of the Shaman? Deep State 

"I bought this book because, well... we all know why I bought this book. Who knows how long until Amazon takes it down. " Chance Bond

what did he do wrong except having horns on a helmet that should be without horns? (In Viking court he would only get 12 months for that I think)
There was the small matter of an unsuccessful coup attempt, but never mind. I agree that the excess horniness is an offense in its own right, but somewhat secondary.

And now they have a new role model in Kyle Rittenhouse, who goes free to shoot a few more rowdy liberals. In self defense, of course. Wherever he can track them down.
There does seem to be a school of thought that KR should be locked up because certain people have made him their role model. I think that’s a bit of a stretch.
He should be locked up because he brought his assault rifle (across a state line, for whatever that is worth) to kill people, which he proceeded to do. The mere fact that Republicans idolize him is not his problem. That’s ours.
I thought that he didn't carry the rifle across state lines, that was just made up by someone (bearish?!). Fact check, anyone?!

(But I agree the state-line thing is odd. I once witnessed an attempted murder but the police didn't do anything because "by the time they'd get there the accused would have been in a different jurisdiction.")

It was perfectly legal for him to carry the gun. And apparently it's perfectly legal to kill someone in self defence. Which is sort of the point of the second amendment. If you're being chased by someone who throws things at you and you hear a gun go off, you might be a bit worried for your safety. And then someone hits you with a skateboard. And then a third person draws a gun on you. Well, it's not going to end well.

He and the rifle travelled from his home in Illinois to Wisconsin, looking for someone to kill. And he found them.

And it may have been “perfectly legal” (although that is also disputed) because of bleeding head Republican gun laws.

Good find -- that led me to his wikipedia page, which is amusing too. Goes to show P.T. Barnum was right -- there's no such thing as bad publicity. I am predicting that he will soon host Saturday Night Live -- from prison!

"What if you could control flames, winds, waters and sands? If you dare, I suggest you prepare, for within your mind, this book shall help you find, the secrets of spirituality....So with each page you turn, every mistake leaves something to learn.  "

https://www.amazon.com/Will-Power-Inside-Living-Library/dp/154697220X by Loan Wolf (not to be confused with Wolfs of Wall Street = Wall Street quants )

"Once in prison, Angeli (Loan Wolf ) reportedly refused to eat because the food served was not organic. Subsequently, a court ordered that he receive organic food."  Indeed one need organic food to control winds.
