In the course of our discussing back and forth pursuant to Kyle Rittenhouse trial last week, my attorney shared the following thoughts. They are spot on and I concur in toto.
Here, the prosecution’s own witnesses have already confirmed/admitted that: ‘Defendant Rittenhouse’ was cursed at; threatened; chased by multiple agitators; physically knocked down; and had a gun pointed at him, with threats…before acting to defend himself.
It would seem mighty clear here, that perhaps:
This Judge should have ‘directed a verdict’ at that point, and for the defendant; as the prosecution’s own witnesses actually have proved his self-defense claim.
But instead, this Judge let this open travesty continue (perhaps himself being afraid that Antifa-terrorists will show up at his own door?)…
Meanwhile, a journalist-witness is claiming that he was approached by these same prosecutors – who asked him to change his testimony (that would support the defendant – to go against the defendant).
So, it sounds like:
The real criminals got shot legally; some got away; and the rest…are sitting on ‘the bench’ and in the D.A’s office
