    • It should not really in the courts. But to us, probably yes.  @GurjantGnostic you will be aware of Kyle Rittenhouse.    What do you think   Rittenhouse attorney wants to show victim was sex offender Conservatives Kyle Rittenhouse Anthony Huber Twitter Madison | The Independent Rittenhouse attorney wants to show victim was sex offender Kyle Rittenhouse's attorney wants a judge to allow him to argue that one of the men his client killed during a protest in Wisconsin last year was a sex offender, in hopes of showing the man was trying to steal Rittenhouse's gun because he couldn't possess one Via AP news wire Tuesday 06 July 2021 19:28   Kyle Rittenhouse s attorney wants a judge to allow him to argue that one of the men his client fatally shot during a Wisconsin protest was a sex offender, saying it supports a defense theory that he attacked Rittenhouse and intended to take his gun because he couldn't legally possess one. Mark Richards maintained in court filings Thursday that Joseph Rosenbaum was convicted of having sex with a minor in Arizona in 2002 and was prohibited from possessing firearms. Rosenbaum started the altercation with Rittenhouse in hopes of making off with his assault-style rifle, which only bolsters Rittenhouse’s self-defense argument, Richards wrote.
    • Britain suffers record rise in alcohol deaths during COVID pandemic Reuters LONDON, Dec 7 (Reuters) - The United Kingdom saw a record rise in the number of deaths caused by alcohol misuse last year, which public health officials said was linked to the wider social impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Some 8,974 people died of alcohol-specific causes in 2020, 18.6% more than in 2019 and the largest increase since records began in 2001, Britain's Office for National Statistics said.   Previous data from health authorities in England had shown a 21% rise in deaths from alcoholic liver disease last year, when COVID-19 lockdowns closed pubs but led to many heavy drinkers consuming more alcohol at home. read more Between 2012 and 2019, alcohol death rates in the United Kingdom had been stable, the ONS said.   "The fact that mortality rates from key causes of death related to alcohol increased in 2020 suggests that an increase in alcohol harm was a wider impact of the pandemic," a public-sector body, the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities, said. Pinpointing the exact factors which drove the increase in deaths would take time, the ONS said.   The total volume of alcohol sold in Britain in 2020 fell slightly. But a survey in March 2021 showed a rise in the number of people who admitted drinking what health officials consider dangerous amounts - equivalent to five bottles of wine a week for men, or three and a half for women. In line with previous years, men were more than twice as likely as women to die of alcohol-specific causes. Liver disease was the biggest cause of alcohol-specific deaths, accounting for 78% of fatalities, followed by mental and behavioural disorders at 12% and 'external causes' such as accidental poisoning at 6%. Death rates in both Scotland and Northern Ireland were around 50% higher than in England or Wales. https://www.reuters.com/world/uk/britain-suffers-record-rise-alcohol-deaths-during-covid-pandemic-2021-12-07/
