Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted last month of shooting three assailants in self-defense, killing two and injuring another, but some Americans have had a difficult time accepting that verdict from the jury.
Now it has been revealed in a rather “bizarre” twist that a Georgia woman who had sharply criticized Rittenhouse’s mother for being a “bad” parent was actually stabbed to death by her own son just days later, according to a report.
According to Fox 5 Atlanta, Gwinnett County police responded to a domestic violence call on Thanksgiving Day and discovered 42-year-old Marcia Chance dead in her own Lawrenceville home.
She had been stabbed to death during an argument with her own son, 18-year-old Varian Hibbert, who was quickly taken into custody.
Hibbert now faces felony charges of murder, aggravated assault, and possession of a knife during the commission of a felony.
The outlet noted that he had just been arrested twice in August for a variety of criminal charges, which included “willful obstruction of law enforcement officers by use of threats or violence.”
Throwing stones in a glass house
To be absolutely clear, this is an incredibly tragic story, but it also comes with an aforementioned “bizarre” twist that was pointed out by Greg Foreman on his Black Conservative Perspective show.
Foreman, while making it abundantly clear that he didn’t wish to speak ill of the deceased mother, nevertheless made note of a rather “ironic” social media post Chance had made just five days prior to her own horrific death at the hands of her own son.
Chance had shared a provocative and misleading racially charged meme that ludicrously sought to compare Rittenhouse, who had just been acquitted, with Trayvon Martin, who had been shot and killed by George Zimmerman in 2012 in South Florida.
In that post, aside from making it clear that she did not agree with the Rittenhouse verdict, Foreman drew attention to the fact that Chance had questioned the “bad influence” of Rittenhouse’s parents — most likely his mother, who had been subjected to a number of false narratives throughout the trial by those who disagreed with her son’s actions.
Foreman determined that this terribly tragic incident only served to confirm why everyone should be careful about what they post on social media, particularly when calling out the “skeletons” in someone else’s closet while hiding their own skeletons — in this case, a bad son engaged in criminal activity — in their own closets.
