The Early Signs From the Kyle Rittenhouse Trial Are Not Promising

On November 1, Kyle Rittenhouse will go on trial in a Wisconsin courtroom for killing two people and wounding a third during the disturbances in Kenosha, Wisconsin last summer following the shooting of Jacob Blake, who was shot in the back by a police officer who was responding to a domestic disturbance call. The case popped up briefly again because, on October 8, federal prosecutors declined to prosecute the officer, Rusten Sheskey. On Tuesday, both sides in the upcoming Rittenhouse trial appeared before Judge Bruce Schroeder in Kenosha for a final motions hearing. It did not bode well for the prosecution. From WTMJ:

Kenosha News editorial: Don't speak ill of the dead

Dear Mr. Ex-president: Don’t speak ill of the dead. We noted with dismay your remarks on the passing of four-star general and former Secretary of State Colin Powell: “Wonderful to see Colin Powell, who made big mistakes on Iraq and famously so-called weapons of mass destruction, be treated in death so beautifully by the Fake News Media. Hope that happens to me someday. He was a classic RINO, if even that, always being the first to attack other Republicans. He made plenty of mistakes, but anyway, may he rest in peace!”
