How hard do you think the Kenosha DA was going to work to get Kyle convicted...

After refusing to even charge the officer who shot Blake 7 times at point blank range, in the back? The officer was clearly not in any danger while, one could argue, Rittenhouse certainly was. Of course, Rittenhouse brought his own danger with him but the state seemed to want to overlook that. Was there even a question about how Rittenhouse would have a gun with him. If I want to avoid background checks, do I simply have a friend buy a gun for me? Was there one question about who gets to ignore a curfew and who doesn't?

1. I think the DA knew he couldn't win with the evidence given and sacrificed his assistants. nt

2. There is no value in adding a curfew violation to a murder trial

The penalty for breaking it is so minor that it wouldn't have done anything other than waste time and distract or annoy the jury.

For that matter, they could have also charged him with jaywalking or stepping on a crack as well, I suppose.

The DA just didn't have a good case and likely overcharged. They clearly made statements in opening arguments that their own evidence even showed were not true. Perhaps there considerable political pressure behind the charges, I don't know.

3. He tried hard. He just wasn't very good.

4. He sabotagued it when he brought up Kyle's silence.

He would have lost on appeal if he had got convictions.

You can't bring up 5th amendment usage.
