Rittenhouse trial
« on: September 18, 2021, 10:48:36 AM »

Looks like Kyle Rittenhouse might have a halfway decent judge for his trial.  Judge says persecution can’t use at trial any affiliation with the Proud Boys, or the alleged altercation with a female (which now appears to have been in defense of his sister, not some random or “racist” assault) from a month or so before the Kenosha shootings. And while he deferred ruling on a video where Rittenhouse said he would like to shoot looters, the judge did say he was inclined to exclude that too.

There’s also a motion to dismiss the underage possession charge that has been deferred.  Be interesting to see if that gets tossed.  From my reading of the relevant WI law I think it should be.  Granted, I think all of the charges should be dismissed.

Regardless of any "dumb kid" stuff he did before or after the incident, every bit of evidence shown to the public so far shows a clear case of self defense. He should be found not guilty. I imagine that there will be George Floyd levels of "peaceful" protests when that happens.

If he gets off the autistic screeching from the left will be beyond any level seen previously

Who should be on trial is the Democrat Governor that allowed these violent and destructive ‘protests’ to go on for political gain. If the governor had been doing his job, Kyle wouldn’t have been there and armed to begin with and wouldn’t have had to face down multiple violent threats against him.

The deceased scumbags were white, so maybe not.

This sounds like good news for Kyle.  I hope it turns out that way and some "politician" doesn't try to pull the rug out from under him and his attorneys.

Rather than quote all the previous posts, I'll just say I agree with all of them.  Keep us posted as this is the first news I have heard about this in weeks.

I really want to see if they successfully squash mention of his assailants' records...

They probably will -- that's firmly established legal precedent (if not principle). It shouldn't make any difference. Rittenhouse was assaulted, and he acted in self defense. That's all that should matter.

Hmmmm. . . good question. Thinking back to the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin incident, I remember the press and the prosecution were digging deep into Zimmerman's past, hoping they could portray him as some sort of white hispanic mixture of Simon Legree, David Duke, and (of course) Hitler. This was considered right and proper. But when the defense happened to mention that THC from pot smoking was found in Martin's autopsy, and when unflattering pix of Martin began circulating on the internet, the press and prosecution were apoplectic in their outrage.

I won't be surprised to see something similar in the Rittenhouse trial - but without the racial component since shooter and shootees weren't black. (On the other hand, it WAS a typically peaceful BLM protest, right?)
