As the Kyle Rittenhouse trial has unfolded, and witnesses for the prosecution all but handed the case to the defense, and the defendant himself described what was clearly multiple cases of self-defense before the prosecution violated his basic rights as an American questioning his exercising his right to remain silent prior to taking the stand, coverage of the circus has been, well, abysmal.

Rittenhouse admitted to shooting two convicted felons – one of whom just got out of a treatment facility that day – after they turned their weapons (what were convicted felons doing with firearms?) on him. In any court of law, that is known as self-defense.
This is simply not ethical for any journalism outlet to use words like “murdered” in a headline ahead of any verdict. Rittenhouse is accused of murder, yes, but the evidence presented does not support that conclusion.
Anyone with half a brain and knowledge of American law knows that.
Outlets also continually referred to [Gaige] Grosskreutz as the “lone survivor” of the men shot by Rittenhouse. Rittenhouse shot Grosskreutz and killed two other men on August 25, 2020, amid riots and violence in Kenosha, Wisconsin, sparked over the lawful police shooting of Jacob Blake. Court testimony has revealed that in each case, Rittenhouse was either being pursued, attacked, or threatened before he fired.
Lone survivor might have a dramatic ring to it, but it’s still not accurate. He aimed first.
There are those who think the entire trial fiasco is all about suspending second amendment rights. There are others who think that the one prosecutor in the case is auditioning for the next election, as is the judge. Some of the rest of us are wondering what the BLM/Antifa crowd is going to do if a not guilty verdict is read. Will this start the violence all over again?
