    Are you sure you're not viewing the case through ideological (political) lenses again? I would agree with Dr. Grande that the case is rather obvious. It was self defence, but then again how on Earth can be it legal for a teenager to openly carry an AR-15 in the streets? I doubt his intention was to go sing Kumbaya and chant some spiritual mantras there. Such a highly powerful weapon would only belong in the hands of true professional imo. Maybe I just don't get that part of the American mentality.

    that is my point, Wind ... read my earlier post. The above is just an emotional look at the facts of the matter. Justice versus law ... that is the crux of the biscuit.

    I did read it and things went according to law. However, when it comes to justice... Well, it is no small thing to take a life.

    If you did get it, Wind, I'd be concerned. You aren't deranged in your mind. You don't see enemies everywhere. You don't believe in vigilante justice. You don't put yourself in positions where you "have no choice".

    Rittenhouse had a choice. A clear one. Stay home. Or not.

    He chose to go out looking for trouble. And now, so will others.

    I don't see how someone that is so involved in the right/left paradigm could possibly be a sympathetic therapist. Seriously, this is the type of therapist that leaves great therapeutic damage in their wake.

    I'm not interested in and don't care about his sexual orientation, but there's something "off" about him, in my perspective. He always appears utterly calm and doesn't show any sign of emotion in his videos, no matter how long they are. There's not even a hint of a difference in vocal inflection. He does on occasion insert a few humorous comments ─ or attempts at that ─ into his analysis, but all without changing the tone of his voice or his facial expression, as if he doesn't even find his own jokes amusing. Which he probably doesn't.

    He also keeps on asking for people to subscribe, like and comment on his videos, which means he's monetizing them ─ and thus, he's probably not earning a lot from being a psychiatrist, which is already weird in and of itself ─ and he introduces himself as Doctor Grande, which has a connotation of the old-school paradigm for me, where people were somehow regarded as more respectable if they had some sort of social title in front of their name ─ e.g. doctors, lawyers, notaries, teachers and headmasters, politicians, et al.

    For instance, my mother went to school with the wife ─ now widow ─ of our family's general physician, and she would therefore always address said woman as "Madame" instead of by her first name. Likewise, the pharmacist and his wife were addressed by my parents as "Sir" and "Madame". I don't do that. I address my general physicians by their first name, and when people who've known me for years ─ such as my opticians, who have by now known me for 26 years already ─ address me as "Sir", then I just tell them to drop the formalities and address me by my first name.

    Anyway, I wouldn't be surprised if Dr. Grande were to turn out a psychopath, in the clinical sense. Many of the videos on his channel are dedicated to the topics of psychopathy and narcissism, which I find peculiar. Besides, most psychiatrists are people with issues anyway ─ that's why they've taken enough of an interest in the subject to study it.

    yup, we're on the same wavelength now ... it is a classic presentation.

    Interesting observations, I don't know if I agree. I haven't made any strong conclusions abour Dr. Grande.

    Here you can find his family photos in case you are interested:

    For some reason he stopped updating his Instagram page over two years ago though.
