Update from the Rittenhouse Show Trial

youhadonejob.jpg

Below, the antifa guy whose name is Gaige Grosskruetz. Grosskreutz is/was an antifa medic, I think, who was also carrying a concealed gun.


Note that in a previous day's testimony, this terrible, inept prosecutor elicited testimony from his own witness that later, when he collected Grosskruetz' gun from the street, he had to clear a bullet from the chamber -- thus establishing that the gun had a bullet in the chamber and was quite ready to fire.

Grosskreutz drew out this gun and aimed it at Rittenhouse's head. He did this as his antifa confederate was swinging a large skateboard at Rittenhouse's head, and getting shot for that.

In response to Huber pointing a gun at his head, Rittenhouse aimed and fired at him. He hit Huber in the arm. It was a devastating injury -- it ripped off 90% of the muscle of his bicep.

But Grosskreutz's testimony here is even more devastating for the prosecuting.

Nick Rickieta is shouting "directed verdict." That's where a the defense motions that no reasonable jury could find against the defendant on the facts as presented. If the judge agrees, he issues a directed verdict which says that the trial is over, they don't have to go any further, and that he will write the jury's verdict himself, and that verdict is "Not guilty."

Judges really don't like doing this because of the costs of having to re-try a case if they get reversed. If they are found to have issued a D.V. in error, it's a mistrial, and a new case is mounted, with all that expense, and with many witnesses no longer available, and some evidence no longer existent. (Who knows what video the FBI might destroy next.)

A judge might reserve the right to issue a directed verdict after the jury has ruled, giving them the chance to "get it right" first before he steps in and issues his own verdict.

That said, at some point: The directed verdict exists for a reason.

This is that reason.

There's another reason to consider it. Although I don't know if judges can consider this sort of a reason.

But the nephew of drug addict, career criminal, and pervert George Floyd is threatening to dox -- reveal the names and addresses of -- the jurors if they don't vote "guilty."

This, of course, is intended to allow his antifa/BLM friends to kill those jurors.

I think that is the only way the prosecution gets its scalp: if the jurors understand that BLM will murder them and burn down their homes unless they convict an innocent man.

End it.

End it now.

Corrected: Commenters inform me that Huber is one of the dead antifa, and that this "disarmed" fellow is Grosskreutz. Thanks guys!

Update: Cortez King, George Floyd's nephew, is also literally stalking a judge for a decision against BLM he didn't like.

Thanks to Dworkin Barimen.

Corrected: I stated that medics in an army were required to be unarmed. Commenters tell me that that's just not true. They're armed.

Huh.

Only if the judge has balls. Big ones. There's no way Rittenhouse gets acquitted, but the odds are good that he's not convicted. If I had to lay a wager right now, it would be on "hung jury." I suspect that if a directed verdict happens, it will be after the jury hangs and not before they return an answer. If they do return an answer, that answer will stand.

Just my guess.

First, we would all resign from our beloved Agency if we ever found out that anything like that has ever happened.

Short of directing a verdict. They can sh!+ on the prosecution and let the jury know what they think of the states case. That's the passive aggressive approach that most judges will take. It salves their conscience, but still gives them the cover of saying afterwards, the jury decided it, not me.

Because Rittenhouse is being painted as a "raaaaaacist, white nationalist, militia" type, who was at the Kenosha riots (which were to protest the shooting of black criminal Blake, the guy whose GF/baby mama called the cops on him, he ran around threatening the cops with a knife, ignoring their commands to stop, then tried to get into a car full of kids when a cop standing about a foot away from him shot him in the back -- the only side available to the cop).

Rittenhouse was on the "wrong" side of the Kenosha riots, and the dead white antifa thugs were on the "right" side (i.e., the BLM and antifa side).

As much as I understand this position and as much merit as there is, it seems to me that the Defense must move for a directed verdict now. Take the not guilty whenever you can get it. While a jury not guilty may be better in the long run, there is no guarantee that the jury will get it right. I would propose as directed verdict post a jury guilty verdict would be worse. In addition, there may be preservation of error reasons for appeal that you may want to move from now. A defense attorney may have insight on this.

Every defendant wants that. But then you have to weigh the risk of, say, jury intimidation, a jurors who feel that some punishment for Kyle is merited because he shouldn't have been there in the first place, etc.

Jurors can be irrational. They don't have to follow the case or arguments. They can be sleeping, drunk or high while the case is being evaluated (read Tanner v. U.S. 483 U.S. 107 (1987)).

Hopefully a member of the defense sees this and brings it to the judges attention, though I'm guessing if they then went to arrest this scum bag he'd end up jamming an 8 ball up his keister too, causing more government sponsored looting.

As for Rittenhouse, the only thing he should be on trial for is for not always shooting center mass.

231 Yeah - get the directed verdict when you can. We've seen a jury decide to ignore what was said and respond to threats. Just happened up the road a ways in Minneapolis; Chauvin was clearly shown to be using a hold consistent with the way the Minneapolis PD trained. Any attempt to save Floyd was lost when the crowd delayed medical help from arriving. They were more responsible for his death.

I still believe Chauvin wins on appeal. In this Rittenhouse case take the not guilty whenever you can - you cannot trust a jury.

And the guy threatening to DOX the jurors, something needs to happen to him.

I maintain that Chauvin was a dedicated leftist. He was a police officer in a notoriously woke police force in a notoriously leftist city, and he was aiming for advancement. You don't advance by being pro-Trump in that sort of environment.

It's also why his social media history never surfaced. They washed it away to blame him on the right when he had been an official foot soldier of the left's establishment for years, if not decades.

Not that what happened to him was justice, but that it shows that the left will eat its own all the time. And I think it was a message well received by a fair number of people.

The people that have the blood on their hands are the mayor and Governor Evers. They should have brought in the National guard after the first nght of rioting. Kyle shot those men on the THIRD night of riots.

He's on video previously saying that he wished he'd managed to shoot Rittenhouse, and on video and film from a zillion angles during the incident. There is no effin' way he can testify other than honestly and not put his own ass in a sling and he knows it.

Remember, the left views this as another no-lose case. Either Kyle is convicted and their opponents get dunked on - especially if it's via juror threats - or he gets off and we get more riot-fodder. The left aims to create situations where their opponents refuse to condemn people the left has unpersoned, in order to rile up their base and to fid-leaf political violence.

The major miscalculation is that the right was sitting on their hands through 2020 wanting to avoid negative optics for the election. Now the election - ANY election, perhaps ever again - isn't really a concern for many millions of people. The only law left is the 11th commandment and people are simply waiting for the balloon to go up.

Only once for me, and is was awesome. We were all seated and waiting for counsel to show up. Defense lawyer stormed in, walked right up to the bench brandishing a video tape and said, "Your honor, we need to meet in your chambers." The judge looked very surprised and unhappy, but they went into chambers, right off the courtroom. After a few minutes of muffled yelling, they all came out. The defense lawyer looked smug and the prosecutor looked like he was about to lose his lunch. The judge said, "Thank you all for coming. We were going to do jury selection this morning, but some people don't seem to know the rules. I am throwing this case out. Thank you for your time and all of you will be marked as having done your civic duty. Have a wonderful day."

323 Grosskruetz testimony....

I have been watching it all morning. The verbal and written statements by Grosskreuetz are all over the place and, being generous, smack of him shading events to paint him as something of hero and utterly blameless for getting shot in the bicep. The deal here is he ran at break neck speed a couple blocks and interjected himself in the situation where Rittenhouse was on his back. At this point he claims he put his hands in the air, Rittenhouse then racked a round into the chamber and the shot him. Of course the fact that he by this point lunged and pointed his Glock 27 directly at Rittenhouse was more a less a what's a fellow to do moment, nothing to see here, move along. I looked carefully at the video and I can't figure out where Rittenhouse, in the space of a second or two, "racked" a round and had time to get a round off. He barely had time to roll over and respond to a Glock 27 pointed directly at him. I don't find Grosskruetz credible at all. If Grosskruetz hadn't chased Rittenhouse down he would still have a right bicep. But he did, was then loose with his statements, and for extra credit he was carrying a concealed weapon illegally.

This is unfair.
There is no excuse for what the thugs tried to dop Kyle, or for rapists, but there is such a thing as keeping a 17yo out of a situation where he needs an AR to defend himself.

I think Kyle is a hero, and I said so since the first photos dropped (and was rebuffed in these gray boxes) but I think he screwed up in getting separated from the group, and his parents screwed up in letting him go to that shit show city to play hero. Turns out he was a hero but this could have gone very badly for him.

The NYT has an article out about how cops are jumping in front of moving vehicles and shooting at them like in the movies and how stupid and dangerous that is. I was all okay I can see how that's bad.

NYT: These are unarmed men! The police claim the vehicle itself is a weapon!
Me: But it is tho.
NYT: And these are people who are just trying creep around or otherwise drive away from the police!
Me: Oh for pity's sake.

I did a few trial a few years ago for a woman who was claiming she had been wrongfully terminated from a state job. I thought it could be mildly interesting. I thought wrong.

This woman was a loon and her lawyer was embarrassingly awful. He dragged the thing on for 4 days when it should have taken a couple hours, max. At the end the judge took us into his chambers and proceeded to clown the attorney for about 1/2 hour. Even he hated him.

Only good part was one guy who showed up for the jury pool in a wife beater, cut off jean shorts and Doc Martens. Don't remember his first name but his last name was Cash and he went on to tell the court during the voir dire that he had a daughter named Stolen and a son named Cold.

This is a tactic, claiming that if they have some of their group labeld as "press" or "medics" or "food support" this makes them off-limits from police and somehow neutral. Because they say so. All while having these allegedly non-combatant antifa participating in the violence. Clown nose on, clowns nose off.

And they get away with it because the MSM work with them. For onsite MSM/inependent journalists they must agree to antifa's terms, including maintaining the farce that the antifa "press" "medics" erc. are not violent/off limits.

379 Johnny B (6 is correct. A judgment of acquittal based on a directed verdict by the judge (a finding of insufficient evidence to sustain the charges) is not reviewable. Game over.

I think it's now basically uncontested that Dead Guy one had threatened to kill Kyle, and then got shot when he was lunging at Kyle trying to grab his bun; Dead Guy two was shot while beating Kyle with a skateboard; and Wounded Guy was advancing on Kyle at close range while pointing a gun at him.

There are still outstanding mail-in ballots and approximately 70,000 provisional ballots to be counted. Murphy's lead is now 66,405 (a 2.6 point difference; of note Trafalgar's last poll had Murphy up by 4.2 points).

415 338 I keep seeing people saying that Kyle "Shouldn't have had the gun there. He should have know it would lead to violence." So it's his fault they attacked him.
____________

Regardless of whether anybody agrees that Kyle should have been in Kenosha that night or not, the fact remains that his behavior on the streets that night was exemplary.

He was polite, helpful, he offered medical assistance to anyone who needed it (regardless of which side they were on), he put out arson fires, and he repeatedly retreated from the group of lefty nutcases who were doing all the damage and shouting profanity at him and threatening to kill him.

At one point he gets some ugly verbal abuse shouted at him by some nasty leftist bitch and he turns to her and politely says with a soft smile "I love you too, ma'am."

IOW, he could not have been less offensive and/or threatening to anyone. He was trying to help keep Kenosha from being destroyed. Maybe he shouldn't have bothered, but he showed himself to be a decent human being and a skilled marksman with remarkable trigger restraint when the lefty mob came after him.

He is a remarkable young man.

423 Is it possible that the prosecutor is throwing this trial to set an example of how stupid this whole case is regarding self defense during a riot?

That would mean that all other trials/cases must have more details than this one, correct?

This would be similar to a murderer, witnessed by other people at the scene, voice and visuals recorded by multiple witnesses over a timeline right up to the point of death. This citizen is still entitled to his rights getting a defense atty, right?

The difference here is that the ones who died were the ones who brought this whole case through the escalation of events.

Can't say how much I disagree with this comment. One it has nothing to do with the trial. And it is a line of thinking that gives Kyle's opponent's permission to think he was in the wrong.

We stand here and wonder when someone will stand up to these Antifa idiots. In my neck of the woods the idiots haven't got a chance. But in Kenosha, this kid went to help, and did some heroic things - for that he was targeted by f**king pieces of s**t.

So a 17 year old kid did stand up. Whoa, acting like an adult, when we decry how much kids refuse to grow up. We should applaud his parents for not creating a go along to get along.

Technically a medic should not be armed. But with the Japanese and Viet Cong, forget it. So yeah you packed to defend yourself and your charges.

Ben Salomon, US Army Dentist, received a posthumous Medal of Honor for Saipan. Stayed behind to cover for the wounded at a forward aid station while the Japs attacked (he'd already killed a couple of infiltrating Japs that got into the hospital tent).

Dude went total beast mode with a Garand and machine gun taking down about 100 or more Japs before they finally killed him.

Didn't get the Medal until decades later because the Army worried that he wasn't supposed to be a combatant since he was a doc.

Why would you go in the first place? If it's not your property or even your state, and you had not been asked?

Every time you take up arms, you take a calculated risk. Guns are made for one thing, to kill. You take up arms that means you better be prepared to kill- or be killed.

I agree with Kyle's defense. He is completely innocent and the people he shot were scum. But he put himself into this situation, willingly. He should not be surprised he's sitting in as courtroom- that was one potential outcome. Another was being dead, which he's lucky he's not.

I don't agree. Kyle wasn't just out randomly "looking for trouble." He was connected to Kenosha. His father lived in Kenosha. He himself had lived there and worked there, and he knew the city and had friends there. It was under attack, and he felt compelled to go and help defend it out of a sense of civic duty.

Yes, it was dangerous and maybe it was also stupid, but his motives were good and he doesn't deserve to be blamed for what happened. The leftist assholes who were burning down the city and trying to kill Kyle are the ones at fault, along with the disgusting politicians and media that promote and enable these vile leftist thugs and continually make excuses for their wanton violence and destruction.

Sorry, you are wrong, he was asked by management to be there, testimony was that he was directed to the second lot to put out fires caused by arsonists. Rosenbaum was one of those arsonists. Arsonists often kill people with their arson, and are considered dangerous by law enforcement.

And none of that is an actual crime. Wisconsin does not have the Uber woke "Duty to Retreat" meaning yes you can go into a situation with an understanding that it might be a confrontation so long as you don't provoke the confrontation yourself. So unless Kyle said or did something that provoked the threats and assaults on him, the fact that he knew confrontation was likely is irrelevant.
As it should be.
-They are willing to use violence to silence dissenting opinion. This is illegal.
-We have a right to voice dissenting political opinion. If we are attacked for doing so we have a right to defend ourselves.
-We are under no obligation moral or legal to be silent so *they* don't get violent.
-If we perceive violent conflict as a possible and/or likely outcome legally we can take legal measures to be prepared to protect ourselves.
We absolutely cannot allow their threats of violence to define when we can speak.

It didn't help that the NJ dems just revamped New Jersey's voting laws to allow for early voting (a first for NJ) and expanded VBM.

Alot of voters didn't realize that they couldn't vote in person if they received a VBM ballot, etc. There were also wifi / tech problems in some precincts (because of course, there is new tech where you sign a tablet screen instead of the voting book).

I wouldn't be surprised to see the provisionals break for Jack, but it's likely not enough to win.

Republicans will need to get better at playing the VBM game. Dems goose their turnout by getting low-propensity voters to vote by mail. GOP needs to identify its low-propensity voters and push them to VBM. (Or else, change the laws to restrict VBM, but good luck doing that in NJ).

Assuming his firearm was legal, licensed. You can open carry. It doesn't matter if it is a handgun or a rifle. He only shot people who were trying to hurt him. He didn't spray the crowd.

People think rules control violence. That is only typical in the suburbs. Violence controls violence in most of the rest of this country. That's what came to the suburbs with this rioting.

================================
You are right. Kyle Rittenhouse and the dozens of others trying to keep the peace should not have been there.

The person that murdered Joseph Rosenbaum and Huber was Governor Tony Evers, not Kyle. Evers should have called out the National Guard and flooded Kenosha after the first night of rioting. 2,000-3,000 National guard and there are NO RIOTS. The only reason Rosenbaum attacked Kyle was he was young, alone and vulnerable. 2,000 Guard on the streets and insane or not, Rosenbaum slinks away and lives. Huber and Gosskreutz point, yell, and scream, but go home safely. If the Guard was there on the 3rd night? No Arson, No Riots, No Dead.

Sure they had police. The police protected City Hall and the Court House BADLY. The trial is being held in a court room where they broke out the windows in the riots. The business districts and neighborhoods? There were NO POLICE. Kyle and others stepped up.

Why does everyone insist on linking his being there to how he reacted?

1. I think he screwed up in not being serious about the threat and wandering off.

The defense is that his actions were forced and that he had a legal right under Wisconsin law to use force to protect himself from serious injury and/or death. Andrew Branca at LI has done some great (and long) posts spelling out the elements of establishing this in a court of law. So far, the Defense is establishing all the elements required, and the Prosecution is failing completely.

The idea that Moses designed the So State to exclude blacks to the beaches of the South Shore is completely unfounded.

584 The more one-sided the evidence in favor of self-defense is, the more this helps the prosecution, when you understand the point of this trial is not to punish Rittenhouse but to send a message.

If you have a trial where the evidence points firmly in the way of acquittal, and a cowed and intimidated jury convicts anyway, the message is sent and received that BLM and Antifa are free to enforce the Marxist-Dem agenda with street violence, and nobody is allowed to resist with any lawful means.

If the evidence was muddy on self-defense, then that message is not as clear. Thus the prosecution has to clearly show Rittenhouse is innocent, and then let the jurors convict him anyway.

____________

After the 9/11 attacks, Pat Tillman, who had a million-dollar contract to play for the AZ Cardinals, quit the team and signed up for the Army. He could have stayed in AZ, enjoyed his wealth, and lived happily ever after. But he volunteered to go to Afghanistan instead, because he felt compelled to take a stand. He ended up getting his head blown off in a friendly fire incident.

You could say he was stupid, that what he did was foolish, that it wasn't his fight, whatever. But in times of conflict, some men will run away and some will stand and fight. Tillman chose to fight. Rittenhouse chose to fight.

I applaud them both. They had courage and the strength of their convictions. It's too bad more people don't.

The police and National Guard were not engaged in protecting Kenosha. There was clearly an unlawful understanding and coordination between government and Antifa/BLM rioters.

This show trial, and the unpunished threats against the jurors, are a continuation of that same conspiracy.

When the Antifa thugs tried to murder Rittenhouse in retaliation for stopping the burning, they quite correctly believed they had official clearance to do so with impunity. They failed. Now the State seeks to murder Rittenhouse in their place.

Let's quit talking past each other. You want to separate the decision to go, from his decision making once there - absent one decision he made while there.

Did he expect to shoot anyone when he got there? I highly doubt it. Was he frustrated by law enforcement and the government's inability to do their sworn duty. Yep. Just like the rest of us here.

Yes, he was 17. So had he been 18 would that have been better? It's a pointless argument. Either you feel the left is being allowed to run roughshod and we just need to sit back and take it, or you don't. There is no middle ground. And not taking it is ugly sometimes. My only regret is that KR didn't kill all three of them. Killing anyone is a terrible horrible thing. Thankfully I've never been called to do it. But once you've done two in an action, it's no more nightmarish for one more. And while we all should be careful about being judge and jury, it seems the Antifa protestors would always best be having their herd reduced.
