Kyle Rittenhouse's trial opens with his lawyer saying the N-word twice in court

Quote:

Kyle Rittenhouse's defense attorney said the N-word twice in court on Tuesday during opening statements in a trial that will focus on whether the teen was justified in shooting three men during racial unrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year.

Rittenhouse is charged in the fatal shootings of two men and injury of a third after going to Kenosha on the night of August 25, 2020. His lawyer said Rittenhouse wanted to help protect a local business amid the unrest in response to the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man.

While Kenosha County Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger said in his opening statements that Rittenhouse's use of force was unnecessary, Mark Richards, a member of Rittenhouse's defense team, said the teen had been forced to defend himself from Joseph Rosenbaum, one of the slain men.

To drive home his point, Richards showed the jury a clip that depicts Rosenbaum taunting others on the night of his death.

"Shoot me," Rosenbaum says in the video before adding the N-word. He then says the same phrase, ending it again with the N-word. "Bust on me for real," he then says.

A little more than a minute later, while referring to the clip, Richards repeated Rosenbaum's words in the video, including the two instances of Rosenbaum saying the N-word.

Richards spent most of his opening statement to the jury painting Rittenhouse as someone who had close ties to Kenosha and wanted to lend a hand to the community. He said multiple times that Rittenhouse went to Kenosha armed to help defend a local business and that his client didn't "want confrontation" or "trouble."

Richards said Rittenhouse was forced to defend himself when Rosenbaum started chasing after him and diving for his gun. The lawyer said Rittenhouse shot the other two people while defending himself against a mob after shooting Rosenbaum.

The prosecution framed Rittenhouse's actions as extreme, even amid the backdrop of violence and chaos that night.

Binger told the jury in his opening statement that it was "important to keep the context of that night in mind" when determining whether Rittenhouse acted "reasonably."

"We will show you video of hostile confrontations, people getting up in each other's faces, and yet the only person who killed anyone is the defendant," Binger said.

Binger also called into question the idea that Rittenhouse was in Kenosha just to protect businesses, saying that the police had pushed demonstrators past the business Rittenhouse was said to be guarding.

"Does the defendant stay there? Does he decide that he's done what he set out to do and it's time to go home? No," Binger said. "The evidence will show that the defendant and another individual in the group ... decide to venture out into the crowd ... and walk amongst this group of hostile protesters."

The trial, which began Monday with jury selection, is expected to last two weeks.

Another Salty drive by.

This had been pre approved by the Judge. Nothing creative about it.
But nice try attempting to create an argument here upon which the judge actually ruled.

Hopefully the jury can see past the propaganda surrounding this case and evaluate the case on it's merits. As the videos clearly show, Mr. Rittenhouse was in fear for his life and did what he had to do to defend himself.

Unfortunately, there are those that are hell bent upon getting a pound of flesh from someone that does not think they way they do and will do everything they can to ruin this young mans life. They should be ashamed.

I was unaware of your law degree. My bad, but thanks for the explanation counselor.

Clearly, you don't see who is my avatar. I'm pretty ugly, so I borrowed a face from old Hollywood.

I would suggest the word[I] Ass-ump-tion[/I] starts with an appropriate first syllable for a reason. So, your attempt at a personal insult has simply exposed your foolish bile.
Perhaps you should make assumptions with some care.

Your childish and immature insult was meant to discredit me and my opinion and make yourself look superior.

However, it really had quite the opposite affect. You just showed what a vile and despicable person you really are. Grow up.

I expressed an opinion that this young man gets a fair trial by an impartial jury and that the case is decided on its merits and not on the political lean of those that brought it to trial; and you decide to hurl insults.

Does a right leaning young man NOT deserve fairness from our legal system or is that only reserved for those with whom you agree?

Assaulted in a public street by Leftwing violent thugs Rittenhouse had a credible fear for his life. He acted out of self preservation. It's a disturbing sign of the times the prosecutor appeals to the jury by condemning Rittenhouse for using a public street as if Marxist thugs had a superior claim to public space and to attack anyone they found on it. :rolls

Calling the violent protestors "victims" suggest the defendant is guilty. You may well believe that but the Judge cannot. He must maintain the presumed innocence of the accused until the prosecution convinces otherwise via arguments of fact.

Again, the judge qualified the language used to prevent undue bias in the court proceedings. You have a problem with a judge who maintains order and balance when hearing arguments before him?

Your idea is how we attain lawlessness in a nation of laws. Sorry counselor but ,,,;I would suggest you go back to whatever law school you attended and ask for a refund.

BTW, Tonto was Comanche, I'm Cherokee. I'm offended that you used the wrong assign age. You are ᏄᏓᏅᏛᎾ
