Looks like Kyle is going to stand trial for his alleged crimes:


Kyle Rittenhouse — the 17-year-old charged with killing two people during protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, after the shooting of Jacob Blake — will stand trial on charges of felony homicide and other crimes, a court commissioner ruled Thursday.
During a preliminary hearing at Kenosha County Circuit Court, which was held via video link, commissioner Loren Keating ruled that there was enough evidence to send Rittenhouse to trial over the Aug. 25 killings of Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26.
Rittenhouse also faces charges of possession of a dangerous weapon while under the age of 18 and felony attempted homicide for injuring a third man, Gaige Grosskreutz.
Lawyers for Rittenhouse argued that the teen, who has been praised by right-wing commentators and viewed sympathetically by the Trump administration, had acted in self-defense when he opened fire.
But Keating said those arguments were issues for trial — not a preliminary hearing. The teen’s lawyers also asked Keating to dismiss two charges, including possession of a dangerous weapon, but the commissioner declined, saying that was also an issue for trial.

Rittenhouse, of Antioch, Illinois, was released on $2 million bond last month, money mostly raised by conservatives through a legal defense fund.

And in related news..the 19yo who posed as a straw buyer for Kyle's gun has been charged:


Charges have been filed against a 19-year-old man who prosecutors allege purchased and supplied the gun used by 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse in the fatal shootings of two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
Dominick Black, of Kenosha, faces two felony counts of intentionally giving a dangerous weapon to a minor, causing death, according to a criminal complaint filed in Kenosha County Circuit Court. If he's found guilty, he faces up to 6 years in prison per count.

According to the criminal complaint, Black enlisted the help of Rittenhouse in guarding the Kenosha car dealership Car Source from property damage and looting. The complaint stated Black “volunteered to go out after curfew” and “asked Mr. Rittenhouse to join him.”

In interviews, the owner of Car Source has denied requesting help from either Black or Rittenhouse in protecting his dealership during the protests.

Hmm. The democrats bail out race rioters. Fact. People that burned down cities and race riots. Trump haters did this. The democrats constantly push this anti cop anti white narrative. Is this what the democrats think democracy has come to? Pandering to the lowest common denominator? Apparently.

My family doesn't deal with "commissioners." There's a judge who isn't quite a judge charging a murder that isn't quite a murder, and there's reasonable doubt all over that commissioner's face and ass.
Rittenhouse also faces charges of possession of a dangerous weapon while under the age of 18 and felony attempted homicide for injuring a third man, Gaige Grosskreutz.
Somebody's putting out a shitty-ass lousy binding "precedent" legislating from the bench like that. Any criminal charge for “possession” of any sort of “weapon” is invalid on its face, because of the Second Amendment, and under the Constitution absolutely precludes any criminal charges for any crime that might be committed by the defendant with that weapon.

You have to permit the defendant to hold the weapon in his hand and pull the trigger on it if you want to charge the defendant with murder, manslaughter, or any cocked-up sort of homicide in a dysfunctional anti-Constitutional county-commissioned court system.

And several posters on this very board have publicly called for Rump to PARDON this piece of shit.

So conservatives clamoring to defend homicidal maniacs now. We live in interesting times.

So you don't believe that children should have the right to defend themselves from groups of rioting Child Molesters?

Interesting thought there.

It will be interesting seeing the criminal rioters who are called in to testify getting grilled anyhow.

No reason to pardon him... He shouldn't go to jail. He'll get hit for a couple lesser crimes... But...

What I find interesting is the idea of trying someone for shooting arsonists and looters during a riot.

In the new era of "facial recognition" softwear, it will be interesting to see the discovery process here to find witnesses. Getting these creeps on the stand will help store owners and insurance companies to identify them for their civil liability. The leftist state may not want to prosecute them for arson or robbery. But the folks who own stores might want the money for the damage caused by the fires.

I would love to be on the jury, I'd find Kyle to be as innocent as a newborn babe.

Clear case of self defense. The so-called "victim" here was a child molester and Kyle was a child.
You couldn't be on his jury, because you already have your mind made up, before the evidence is shown in the trial.

No... And That's not what he did. So... I suggest you educate yourself on the topic.
Yeah, no. It's on video. I suggest you follow your own advice.

Is this really a shock to anyone?

What's the exact legal meaning of "nut" in this sentence, and why is it relevant?
