There seems to be consensus on SS that the prosecution mangled its case and that there's a possibility, even, perhaps, a likelihood that Kyle Rittenhouse may walk even though he shot two people and wounded another in Kenosha in 020.

What's also true, in my opinion, is that the prosecution abused the basic tenet of American justice that the accused is innocent until proven guilty. The prosecutor attacked Rittenhouse on the stand, in front of the jury, for claiming his very basic right to remain silent. The judge admonished the prosecutor for that, but the motion for a mistrial is partially based on that abusive questioning.

Also, the prosecution has been busted for, in effect, withholding evidence from the defense, sending an inferior copy of a crucial drone recording so that the defense only saw the high quality version of the recording when it was presented to the jury.

Usually, motions for mistrial are technical and have no chance.

But, this time?

If you want to see violence after the trial, try convicting Rittenhouse with the judge denying the motion for mistrial.

These events are ugly enough. Now, thanks to the prosecution, they are much uglier.

    But you predicted that conservatives would not riot if the The Rittenhouse trial did not go their way. What changed?

    You're correct. And, I stand by that. MAGAs won't riot. But, in the unlikely event, look for out of towners. The equivalent of BLM and Antifa...Proud Boys and the like...to be a presence.
