Rittenhouse defense accuse the prosecution of defamatory teenager in concluding arguments

Defense attorneys for Kyle Rittenhouse has blamed the indictment of lying to jurors in their concluding statements, saying that the state lawyers played “fast and dissolved ” with the prove to vilify the teenager as a killer.

The defense and blames both made their final arguments before the jury on Monday, after eight days of testimony of dozens of witnesses and projection of almost 20 videos of the evening of August 25, 2020 – when Rittenhouse, then 17, shot and killed two men and wounded a third in a violent attack of protests and riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Risks including charges first- despite voluntary murder, attempted and reckless murder, as well as reckless mass in danger.

Mark Richards, who leads Rittenhouse’s defense team, blew up Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger for misleading jurors in the case, namely on death of Joseph Rosenbaum. While prosecutors argued that the 36-year-old Rosenbaum was killed in Cold blooded, Richards insisted that the man was only shot after attacking Rittenhouse and trying to grab his rifle as the teenager attempted to retreat.

“This case is not a game; it’s my client’s life. we don’t play fast and loose with facts, pretending that Mr. Rosenbaum was Citizen A, number-one guy,” Richards said. “He was a bad man, he was there, he was causing trouble, he was a riot and my client had to deal … with him that night alone. “

Kyle shot Joseph Rosenbaum to stop a threat to his person, and I’m glad he shot him, because if Joseph Rosenbaum figured it out gun, I do not for a minute I think he wouldn’t use it against somebody else. He was irrational and crazy.

In addition to Rosenbaum, Rittenhouse was also charged for the death of Anthony Huber, as well as the non-fatal shot of Gaige Grosskreutz, all of them of who was captured on film chasing the teenager before he was shot.

In their concluding statements, the prosecution claimed that Rittenhouse had “caused” the accident, characterizing it as a “active shooter” and trying to flip theauto-defense discussion on his head.

“When the accused causes the accident, he loses the right to auto-defense. You cannot expect to auto-defense against a danger you create, “ Binger said, adding the fact that Rittenhouse was armed invalidated his defense and that “The crowd has the right to try to stop a active shooter.”

In one point during his final argument, Binger turned his head after trying to recreate the scene on the night of the shootings, hoisting an AR-15 on his shoulder and aiming it in the crowded courtroom with his finger on the trigger. The defense challenged his presentation of the facts, claiming that Binger was facing the wrong way in his attempt to simulate the actions of Rittenhouse, while many observers online raked Binger over the coals for ignoring basic gun safety.

The final discussions have arrived soon after Judge Bruce Schroeder agreed to drop a further crime gun load against Rittenhouse, taking note of the statute in question is difficult to understand and probably did not apply to the case. Now 18, Rittenhouse still faces serious allegations that they could result in life in prison if he is condemned. The state of Wisconsin government And also reinforcements for riots should the teenager is acquitted, putting 500 soldiers of the National Guard on standby near Kenosha last week ahead of the verdict.
