Wisconsin protest shootings trial delayed at least 7 months

Source: WBAY, ABC affiliate in Green Bay

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The trial for an 18-year-old from Illinois accused of killing two people and wounding a third during a protest against police brutality in Wisconsin was pushed back Wednesday by seven months and could be delayed even longer.

Kyle Rittenhouse’s trial was scheduled to begin March 29, but both sides told a judge that they needed more time to prepare. Kenosha County Circuit Judge Bruce Schroeder set a Nov. 1 trial start date, with a May 17 status hearing.

1. How so?

Both sides wanted the delay so how is it white privilege?

The kid's young, and if it takes a bit longer to put him away, he will still have a long time to rot in jail.

11. it takes no time at all...

to put away a black kid for life. Of course, attorneys aren't paid for by right-wingers, bail for murdering two people is denied, lots of little things like that. The rotting in jail part is usually much different as well. Two stories just last week about people getting released after 40 years, and 20+ years for falsely convicted. That's another part to the white privilege thing.

15. They let him go on his own recognizance and he disappeared.

Last I heard they don't even know WTF he is. That is white privilege - that he killed two people, was let out until trial, disappeared, and they didn't have a massive manhunt for him and are instead giving his defense more time to try to get him exonerated. He was able to fundraise hundreds of thousands of dollars to get a crackerjack legal team even though he appears to be relatively economically disadvantaged, whereas most Black defendants don't have access to fundraising, leniency, and competent council that this jackass has. I could go on and on.

17. You did not "hear" the right information.

The court knows where he is and the county sheriff knows. The court refused to allow the prosecutor to know because he said he would release it to the public.

18. Still protecting the racist AF white murderer.

That is white privilege in a nutshell. Not to mention that they let him go in the first place. Never, ever would have happened if he had been Black. Why are you so hep to defend this racist POS?

19. You said he disappeared.

He did not. Everyone who needed to know, knew where he was at. Are you opposed to accurate information on this site?

2. Have they recaptured the little bastard yet?

When they do, throw the little prick under the jail...

4. I was wondering the same thing...

I haven't heard otherwise so I'm guessing not. He gets another (at least) 7 months of zero accountability to anyone, anywhere for his whereabouts. Seems like a danger to public safety to me. But I guess IOKIYAR.

7. What do you mean recaptured?

He's on bail. There's nothing to recapture.

Didn't you hear? Last I heard, his lawyers didn't know where he was.

The court knows where he is. Here was the hearing:

3. I have never really understood why it takes so long for things to go to trial in this country.

Which is why I have a lot of trouble watching a TV show or movie where something bad happens and the trial happens within a month or so.

5. At the same web site is a similar story...

Remember the "Slender Man" stabbing?

Well, one of the girls has been judged to be schizophrenic, but her lawyer and 3 psychologists are convinced she should be released from the mental hospital she's in.

6. Hate to think it, but that pissant POS will walk from murder charges. They might get him on

some minor gun offense.

Defense will claim that first murder was self-defense because all video shows is an angry man chasing Rittenhouse into a parking lot where we lose video. Don't believe there are any witnesses to what happened at that point.

The second shooting, the victim pulled his own pistol on Rittenhouse.

In the third shooting -- and second murder -- the victim attacked Rittenhouse with a skateboard.

Rittenhouse tried to surrender to police.

I'd lock him away for strutting around with a rifle, and wearing his hat backwards. But, the defense needs to convince just one juror that the punk was in fear of his life and was attacked first.

14. there may be federal charges........

He (meaning we) won't get a fair trial. The jury will be packed with magats; the judge apparently is at least a sympathizer.

This will need a federal court to work itself out. I'm sure there are charges that can apply.

12. White privilege combined with infinite conservative money to prop it up.

Had he been Latino or Black he'd be in jail and under duress, if he wasn't shot first during the melee.

13. The whole fiasco was a shocking display of white privilege.

These bunch of thugs invaded the sanctity of our government and they seem to be getting just a slap on the hand ( I hope I am wrong).

Any other group of citizens trashing the highest government sites in the land would have been stopped by armed police, actually using their arms.
It is sad and disgusting.
