Valin Posted October 25, 2021 Share Posted October 25, 2021 Fox News Judge also weighing whether to allow self-defense expert to testify at trial Danielle Wallace Oct. 25 2021 Kyle Rittenhouse is scheduled to make another Wisconsin court appearance Monday, as a judge weighs whether to allow a self-defense expert to testify and Kenosha prosecutors are expected to ask the court to ban the three men shot from being called "looters" or "rioters" during the upcoming trial. Monday’s hearing is likely the last to happen before jury selection is slated to begin on Nov. 1. Rittenhouse, then 17 and living in Antioch, Ill., is accused of killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber and wounding Gaige Grosskreutz during chaotic demonstrations in Kenosha, Wisc., on Aug. 25, 2020, two days after police shot a Black man, Jacob Blake, while responding to a domestic disturbance. Rittenhouse has pleaded not guilty to homicide and other charges, arguing he fired in self-defense. (Snip) Prosecutors are also asking the judge to block any evidence suggesting local police officers provided water to those who responded to calls on social media to take up arms to defend businesses the evening of the shooting and thanked them for showing up to help patrol the streets. In a video taken before Rittenhouse fired his AR-15-style rifle, officers riding in an armored vehicle throw a water bottle to a teenager and other people out past the city’s 8 p.m. curfew. "We appreciate you guys," one officer is heard saying. "We really do." (Snip) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
