Notes on Rittenhouse trial

Today Kyle Rittenhouse takes the stand in his murder trial. He is not obliged to do so, and there have been many opinions on whether or not this is wise. Most think it is not, but he seems to be holding his own, and I believe it allows the jurors to see Kyle as the young teen that he is. Here is what Jonathan Turley thinks:

The judge blew up at the prosecuting attorney and sent the jurors out of the courtroom while he reamed the guy out for improper questioning. The prosecutor tries to school the judge. This is priceless:

This is great court theater!

    Although I recognize the importance of this trial in regard to the right to defend one’s life, I have to say, the Rittenhouse trial is one of the most “entertaining trials” I’ve watched in quite some time.

    I’m following comments on Twitter, and it amazes me that people are completely wrong about the facts of the case. Watching the trial for only a short while would tell you this.

    One main claim is that he “crossed state lines with an assault rifle”. One guy who said this is supposedly a lawyer!

    Another I saw is that he was taken to Wisconsin from Illinois by his parents and they were all armed.

    Some think he was chasing the people that he shot.

    All of these things are false.

      Well, the media were spreading falsehoods and innuendos immediately, and you know they will never correct them. Already sweeping the trial to small articles on back pages, and trying to highlight something else. The prosecutor and DA should be held to the fire for even pursuing this when the evidence is on video.
