I thought he was fired for posting comments or a video witb "controversial" statements about the case.

[Defense attorney] Richards argued that a misdemeanor count of possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under 18 isn't supported by the law - an argument the court rejected before.

"It wasn't hunting season. This wasn't a kid who went up north with his dad and a shotgun and went hunting for deer," [prosecutor] Binger said.

"We're not arguing that he was 'hunter safety,' that's not what it says. He's not hunting -- so that subsection doesn't apply. He's over 16. That subsection applies," Richards said.
Last Thursday

"Richards also filed a motion to dismiss a charge that Rittenhouse couldn't possess a gun because he was too young under Wisconsin law, arguing that statutes prohibit minors from possessing short-barreled shotguns and rifles, and Rittenhouse's assault-style rifle doesn't meet that definition."

Same link:

"Prosecutors filed motions last week asking a judge to allow a video from July 2020 which they said shows Rittenhouse striking a teenage girl in the back on Kenosha's waterfront. They also want to argue that Rittenhouse is affiliated with the Proud Boys, a far-right extremist group."

Character assassination, pure and simple. Neither of these have anything to do with the charges in the case or the incident.

Did they mention that he lied to his mom once, and called another kid a "poopy-head" in kindergarden?

When he is acquitted I hope the fallout will just be babbling blather from the BLM/antifa crowd that will be easy to ignore and tune out.

Someone finally read the statute correctly. Yay. :rolleyes:

Hopefully it will for the first time get a judge to pay attention and actually spend a few minutes trying to understand the statute at issue.

This is not the first time he filed such a motion.
It sounded better if he was having an epiphany. :ROFLMAO: Well, maybe the others will have their epiphanies.

The defense filed a motion at an earlier stage - it is discussed in this thread. See in and around post #196.
