Sounds good to me. He had no business being there. He sought out confrontation.

IMHO: They are going to go for self defense. He will get off on all homicide charges. The gun charges though will get him. The @#$%& Brotherhood will protect him in prison. Dumbass radicalized teenager.

He was there to patriotically protect the community from “rioters,” “looters” and “arsonists.”

"POSSESSION OF A DANGEROUS WEAPON BY A PERSON UNDER 18" is a Class A misdemeanor in WI.

"Class A misdemeanors, the most serious misdemeanor crimes in Wisconsin, are punishable by up to 9 months in jail, a fine of up to $10,000, or both jail and a fine."

[www.criminaldefenselawyer.com]

With no prior criminal convictions I doubt he'd get anywhere near the maximum above.

Has any story mentioned possible Federal prosecution? At that level there can be charges of illegal transport of a weapon across state lines.

Took them 8 hours to slog through potential jurists yesterday, with several instantly disqualifying themselves with highly charged statements. [www.washingtonpost.com]

EXPLAINER: Does it matter how long jury selection takes?

[apnews.com]

CHICAGO (AP) — As jurors in the murder trial of Kyle Rittenhouse listened to opening statements in a Wisconsin courtroom Tuesday, attorneys in south Georgia questioned potential jurors for a third week in the trial of three men charged in Ahmaud Arbery’s slaying.

It took the judge and attorneys in Wisconsin just one day to choose the panel of 20 — 12 jurors and eight alternates — for Rittenhouse’s trial, but legal experts say the speedy process doesn’t mean the jurors aren’t capable of delivering a fair verdict. The 18-year-old is charged with shooting three men during a protest in Kenosha, killing two of them.

But some worry that comparisons to the lengthy jury selection in other high-profile homicide cases, including the two weeks spent seating a jury in the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, could undercut the Kenosha panel’s credibility.

Judges have enormous discretion over the process of jury selection, resulting in different approaches across states, counties or even in neighboring courtrooms.

According to the judge, the charges must be dropped down to just two:
1. Being too patriotic
2. Having a bad day

The above is, of course, false, but is only half a step beyond the judge refusing to allow the dead to be called "victims."

The prosecution's witness yesterday didn't help their case and may have done more to help the defense.

Edit: And now word that the FBI has/had video of the entire event that they aren't going to release in it's entirety.
