In the summer of last year, police fatally shot two men in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and injured a third during protests. Prosecutors said Kyle Rittenhouse instigated the confrontation that led to the shootings.

Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger argued to the jury on Tuesday (Nov. 2) that Rittenhouse was “drawn” to Kenosha’s turmoil. According to Binger, “Life is more important than property,” was one of the points agreed upon yesterday. Attracted by the chaotic nature of Kenosha, tourists from around the world visited us. Many of our citizens were worried about their safety because people from outside Kenosha contributed to that chaos.”

The evidence shows that only one person, Kyle Rittenhouse, killed any of the hundreds of people in Kenosha that week, out of those who came to the town and those who were out on the streets that week.”

Nevertheless, Mark Richards, an attorney for the defendant, said his client acted in self-defense when he shot Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum. Having self-defense in mind, he explained to the audience. He acted reasonably in light of the circumstances at the time on August 25, 2020, according to the evidence.”

He’s been accused of numerous offenses including first-degree homicide, attempted homicide, reckless endangerment, curfew violations, and possession of a handgun by a child. Huber and Rosenbaum were killed during protests in Kenosha last summer after a black man, Jacob Blake, was shot repeatedly in the back by a white police officer. In addition to Gaige Grosskreutz, Rittenhouse shot him in the arm.

The trial is expected to last between 2 or 3 weeks. If Rittenhouse is found guilty of the most serious crimes, he could spend his entire life in prison.
