UPDATE: Judge Dismisses Illegal Gun Possession Charge in Kyle Rittenhouse Case
Kenosha County Circuit Judge Bruce Schroeder dismissed the illegal gun possession charge in the murder case of Kyle Rittenhouse on Monday.
Ritttenhouse, 18, was only 17 years of age when he was possessing a rifle at a Kenosha, Wisc. riot last year and had been forced to shoot three ANTIFA gang members, killing two, who were attacking him. The prosecutors have alleged that Rittenhouse exerting his 2nd Amendment rights in Kenosha constituted illegal gun possession, but the judge has tossed that charge.
The prosecution admitted that Rittenhouse had been carrying a lawful rifle in Kenosha, with his gun having the specific barrel requirements considered to be a lawful weapon. The judge then agreed with the defense that the count of possessing an illegal firearm should be thrown out and dismissed the charge.
Big League Politics has reported on Judge Schroeder’s noble attempts to prevent the Rittenhouse trial from becoming a complete circus:
“Kenosha County Circuit Judge Bruce Schroeder revealed during the trial of 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse on Tuesday that the media was filming the jurors in the case, in what very well may be an attempt to strike fear into the hearts of the jury.
Schroeder stated that officers caught the individual who was taking the footage and forced him to delete it and said that further measures would be taken to secure the privacy and the safety of the jury as the case is heard.
“The officers approached the person and required him or her … I didn’t even ask … to delete the video,” Schroeder said.
“Something like that should not occur, and I am frankly quite surprised it did,” he added, saying the individual’s phone would be confiscated if something like this were to happen again.
This seemingly confirms the news that Black Lives Matter thugs, such as the nephew of fentanyl saint Dr. George Floyd King Jr., are intimidating jurors so that Rittenhouse is convicted regardless of the merits of the case.
Big League Politics reported on how juror intimidation was a core part of the show trial against former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin to assure his conviction despite evidence that Floyd died of a drug overdose.“
A great deal hinges on the results of the Rittenhouse trial. If he is convicted of murder, it is grave news for the rule of law and the right to self-defense in America moving forward.
