What he should be convicted on, and what he will be convicted on, are two different things... given the judge's obvious bias, I'll be surprised if Rittenhouse gets more than the weapons charge. And I suspect that judge would find Rittenhouse not guilty on even that charge if at all possible.Closing arguments and jury instructions expected on Monday. What do you believe the jury will find?
Because not allowing that would have gotten him in trouble. That judge may be a biased ignoramus but he's not completely stupid when it comes to his own interests.Side note, the judge apparently sided with prosecution in including instructions on provocation to the jury (which would negate self defense), and allowed some but not all lesser (e.g. 2nd degree vs 1st degree) charges the prosecution wanted to add on at last minute, which may increase probability of some form of conviction, but likely lowers chance of conviction on the most serious charges.
Not sure the judge is thinking that far. He appears convinced Rittenhouse is a hero and will do everything he can to prop up that image, consequences be damned.I dont know…Dont they chance it that it wont set off another Floyd moment and turn the streets into ashes? this time with armed protesters? A mistrail sounds like a declaration of… something
Did his mother drive him there? If so she should have been put on the stand.
Yep, it was illegal for Kyle to be crossing state lines without being accompanied by her. Kyle was driving across state lines with no drivers license as well (and I assume no insurance)..
Wisconsin is one of just three states in which 17-year-olds are automatically considered adults in the criminal justice system.
So looks like if this occurs, the prosecuter would go higher-up the court system, and ask a higher judge for a case claiming the "mistrial verdict itself being a mistrial".The Jury will declare a mistrial because the judge is a fascist prick.
lol, that won't happen, but it's what everyone sees and knows to be true.
It's Wisconsin. Everyone gets attention by the bar.And there's literally no recourse. Judge should get some attention by the Bar.
