While lawyers are suppose to fight for their clients, the DA is suppose to fight for truth and the law. With some of the big cases over the last couple decades, that fact seems to have been lost.Isn't the prosecutor obligated to be just as honest and truthful in his statements as everyone else is within the trial? The prosecutor told so many lies directly to the jury he should be jailed for perjury.
Certainly not a broader fix but if granted it certainly bolsters your statements.The thing about the Rittenhouse case that is lost on the left is this:
There are problems in the court system. The unfairness of the prosecution across a range of aspects are entirely unfair and run past the legal and constitutional bounds of our system's limit.
In the Rittenhouse case, there's clear ability to defend himself with a lot of money. This was due to donations. These will hopefully surmount the unfair stacking of the court.
It's easily argued that issues in the courts in the inner city that folks thow against the wall as 'racist' are just the same unfairness that we're seeing in this trial.
There's a lost opportunity for the left who might be reasonably arguing for more fair legal process to actually point to this case and get some real justice reform that pays attention to the rights of the accused while still carrying the interest of proper and right justice (vs retribution).
Man. That’s a very insulated perspective. I’ve got a neighbor that shot a prowler with a rifle when she was 14 and home alone. I don’t think she went looking for trouble anymore than Rittenhouse did. He said so on the stand. There are times you’ve done nothing wrong and trouble still comes knocking. Sometimes trouble wants to make a quick buck and other times trouble wants to “f**n kill you” or “empty the entire mag” in trouble’s own words…Here is an op-ed by a so called "I had shotguns and hunted my whole life" expert on how he thinks Kyle was just a foolish little boy
He gives some fairly profound and wise advice ..."He should have stayed home"
Well, shouldn't the rioters and looters also stayed home?
Just before noon, police announced the apprehension of a man who allegedly followed the jurors on a bus in an attempt to photograph them on Wednesday evening. The man allegedly claimed to be a producer with MSNBC.
Judge Bruce Schroeder responded by barring MSNBC from the courthouse for the remainder of the trial.
I can’t wait to hear how body slamming was provoked. Are we going to have a narrative that the reporter “went looking for trouble” too?Anthony Chacon, 20, was booked on charges of felony bail jumping, misdemeanour bail jumping, battery, resisting and disorderly conduct, a Kenosha Police spokesperson confirmed to Fox News.
Mr Chacon was reportedly seen “body-slamming” a reporter and attacking a supporter of Mr Rittenhouse while wearing a T-shirt which read: “F**k Kyle.” The bail-jumping charges indicate Mr Chacon has a previous criminal record, the details of which are unknown.
