The 17-year-old faces a potential life sentence for fatally shooting two protesters in Kenosha in August.
who was exercising his right to bear arms during unrest. Others portray him as a domestic terrorist who incited protesters by showing up wielding a rifle.Rittenhouse sat at a defense table Friday wearing a dress shirt and tie — mask across his face. He appeared calm and at least once turned to look at his mother, Wendy Rittenhouse, on a spectactors’ bench. Later, as officers led him from the hearing room, she began to cry.
Near the courthouse steps, around 20 protesters, some wearing Black Lives Matter shirts, chanted, “Kyle is a murderer!”During arguments, Pierce at one point said, “This is a political prosecution.” The prosecutor objected and the judge instructed Pierce to stick to issues of law.
Without witnesses from either side, the part of the hearing meant for evidence and testimony lasted less than 30 seconds, when Scheller handed the judge Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s signed warrant calling for Rittenhouse’s extradition.Pierce told Novak that Wisconsin authorities were required by law to present charging documents to a magistrate judge and that their failure to do so rendered their extradition request invalid.
State-to-state extraditions are typically formalities and judges rarely refuse another state’s request to transfer a suspect. Efforts to fight extradition are nearly always in vain but can help attorneys buy time to compile evidence and prepare a defense.
The most serious charge Rittenhouse faces in Wisconsin is first-degree intentional homicide, which carries a life prison sentence. He is also charged with attempted intentional homicide in the wounding of a third protester, as well as a misdemeanor charge of underage firearm possession. His lawyers have argued he was acting in self-defense.
Rittenhouse and the man he allegedly injured are white, as were the two men who were killed.A day after the shooting, Rittenhouse surrendered to police in his Illinois hometown of Antioch, some 10 miles (16 kilometers) southwest of Kenosha.Legal experts say that on the rare occasions when state extradition cases are contested, defense lawyers usually argue that either no crime was committed in the other state or that the defendant was not the person who committed whatever crime occurred.
The defense made none of those arguments Friday.According to prosecutors and court documents, Rittenhouse killed 36-year-old Joseph Rosenbaum, of Kenosha, after Rosenbaum threw a plastic bag at Rittenhouse, missing him, and tried to wrestle his rifle away.
While trying to get away in the immediate aftermath, Rittenhouse was captured on cellphone video saying, “I just killed somebody.” According to a complaint filed by prosecutors, someone in the crowd said, “Beat him up!” and another yelled, “Get him! Get that dude!”
Video shows that Rittenhouse tripped. As he was on the ground, 26-year-old Anthony Huber, of Silver Lake, hit him with a skateboard and tried to take his rifle. Rittenhouse opened fire, killing Huber and, of West Allis, who was holding a handgun. Read more: HuffPost »

For defending himself against violent Rioters assaulting him. There fixed it. Truth doesn’t hold much value with you people at huffpo He's going to be a prison pincushion... Death penalty another right wing nut This happened after Kyle hit a girl. He must rot in jail. The death penalty doesn’t always fit the crime but in this case it does. It’ll make sure justice is served for the families and honestly is cheaper than housing and feeding this murderer for the rest of his life.
Now a haircut shirt and tie 🥵 Good, lock him away forever I’m sorry but I just feel nothing for this kid. I feel he would grow up to b just a larger version of what he is today. Full of hate and violence. this kid is an American hero. How did a 17 year old become so radicalised? Have any of those supporting far right ideology actually experienced what it means to live under an oppressive regime? It’s easy to invent the need for violence if you haven’t actually witnessed what it looks like.
Impossible Good! Throw him under the jail! Please and thank you!🤬 Death Sentence lock him up and throw away the keys his parents are also responsible. If justice is served he will walk out a free and very rich man from all the defamation lawsuits 🤙 He should be happy in jail with a lot of like minded a-holes.
Good Pos needs to be in jail for the rest of his life K now do the lady who drove him there and back Dang he's gained some weight Attention to anyone, i am on my 8th week of offically being destroyed financially.. I dont have rent this month, my car is up for repossession, i dont have money to eat.. If anyone can help me please, even a dollar.. Cash app $PeterDiscenza , Im wishing on a miracle right now
How can you tell self defense when he’s not even legal of age to own the rifle? Reverse races and you’ll see the different tones. Lol. He’s done. ✅🧀 Good he should rot. Not happening For a minute there I thought he was wearing a Hannibal Lecter-style muzzle mask. It would've been fitting I think. Его награждать надо, а не судить!
It wasn’t self-defense. You guys and him are all delusional. Good love you HufflePuff... 3 So what's with the tie and collar shirt? He is decent now? yadiggsandy Kyle did nothing wrong. That’s not going to be easy time for him to serve. “Protesters” lmao I blame the parents, they should do more time than him
New info: At the 6 something minute mark you see 1st off a rioter throwing/missing a molotov cocktail at kyle. Then next he is chased/attacked. FcKKK Him Prison Justice jenga_ca Conservatives say he will be aquited for self defense. Gun nuts think this is perfectly legal I found it ironic that his lawyers argued that he should be protected from being sent to Wisconsin after he voluntarily and illegally went there and hunted people to kill.
Hero. Free kyle. Good Life sentence? It should be double life without the possibility for parole! This bastard took two men from their families!!! Throw the book at his ass!!! They wouldn’t have any sympathy if he was a 17-year-old black boy! TheRealMaxHendo I think life is excessive. He literally defended himself. At first a shit was fired towards him, then was chased, and then he was striked down and hit with a skateboard.
Those cops that waved at him, and let just him walk on by fully armed, should be charged with something too. That's were he belongs but, the one who really should face trial is the mother. She indoctrinated and raised this domestic terrorist. Lock him up! Goood!!! Lock his ass up! The Governor of Illinois ordered it !
Free Kyle!!!! “Protesters” LAW & ORDER!!! Lock him up Promising. he is a chubby for a 17yrs dammmm. like father like mother. 1finekitty Absolutely! Try him as an adult, two counts of first degree murder & since he can’t be executed (like what he did to his victims) let him rot in prison until he can burn in Hell.
1finekitty I hope the BBQ his ass in molasses. ShutUpAmanda Keep a mask on that kid and keep him alive for as long as possible! So he can continue to be a symbol of what happens to radical racist white snowflake republicans when they kill people. I can’t wait until these people freak tf out when he gets no time 😂😂
Yeah so he stole a gun, and took human lives. That's not godly. He is no hero. And he is months away from adulthood. Here's a danger to modern society. Good keep that thug locked up Can’t wait till he walks free Lock him up ... forever! Well deserved. POS he looks very happy. Giddy even. As he should. Is a hero
Good Let that be a lesson proud boys Take his mother too It's such a shame that his parents either indoctrinated him so heavily or ignored his terroristic tendencies enough that he went out of his way to murder people. 17 years old and going to prison for life. It sucks. Justice needs to be served. KenoshaPolice should be on trial too
good Wait till the people on this thread hear the Chauvin verdict 😬 Self defense! Life + Good Rot - parents should be ashamed as well for him even being there It is not fun anymore - dealing with the harsh reality of life on his own He won’t serve a day. Free Kyle! It would be a shame if KyleRittenhouse were to experience a Jeffrey Epstein like incident in prison. It really, really would be.
Looks like a pos YEEHAW!!! He won’t do a day in jail and there isn’t an impartial jury that will convict him. Hopefully his trial gets delayed to Feb 2021 where he will have ZERO changes of his sentence to be commuted by the Grand Wizard in the WH. All the evidence is still in his favor, unless he faces an activist court there's no way he'll get life and there will be more riots.
Throw him under the jail. Lock him up. Throw away the key. No possible parole ever, please. This isn’t Call of Duty, boy. Poor Kyle should’ve stayed at home kid. 👏👏👏 Good you dropped this kyle 👑 Mommy helped He's innocent. Tragic but self defense. Good 🚨Severe Issues🚨 -Rittenhouse's lawyer John Pierce -Robert Barnes says Pierce is 'incompetent' & 'Avenatti of the right.' -A criminal lawyer asked if Pierce is running a Ponzi scheme? -Giuliani is an ex-client of Pierce -Is John Pierce a Deadbeat?
“Fatally shooting” you mean “murdering with a assault rifle” They have to learn somehow!! He deserves to have the book thrown at him. Princess Kyle is already the most popular kid at shower time. Jim Jordan can't wait to go to jail. I wonder who is paying his defence bill. Good the thug Good! He doesn't deserve to have a normal life!
good TERRORIST. Yo need to put the word TERRORIST in the title. He must be punished. The 'protestors' had weapons and were threatening him. Two adult older males. He defended himself against these vermin. He has two of the best trial lawyers in America defending him and his case will be before a jury of Americans, albeit the trial will be moved
He is a hero Nice try with the shirt and tie LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP! It was self defense! This boy is gonna be a rich man ! Take his damn tie off. We don’t believe him! Thank god he will never realize his ambition to become a police officer.
Not going to happen. Clear self defense. He's going to get Covington money by the time the law suits are over. It's more than he deserves. His victims never got a hearing. ginajellybeana7 Life? Wow, lenient. LOCK HIM UP! You do the crime, you do the time. A 17 year old high school dropout roams the streets late one night with a large loaded gun... Without knowing anything else, the ending writes itself...
Good!! selfdefense Finally. It’s an atrocity he was able to get back to Illinois in the first place! Good. Lock him up. He's a murderer and a terrorist Innocent man He should be given life without parole for premeditated murders. He came with an intent to shoot and kill. There should be no leniency. His mother drove him to Kenosha; why isn’t she charged as an accomplist?
To all those 'free kyle' nuts and pro-trumpers, all I can say is go pound sand. The rule of law is the law. His parents need to be held accountable How much you wanna bet that he will be pardoned? What will happen to the millions racist trump supporters raised to defend this murderer? Fat little 💩, suffering from tiny dick syndrome and bad parenting coupled with a looser 🍊 🤡 as role model
Lock him up! Fatally shooting. I’m pretty sure you can just put murdering in cold blood in that headline instead. You spelled communists wrong. ginajellybeana7 That's 4 lives ruined by extremist fucknuttery and gun fanaticism. Why hasn't his idiot mother been arrested? Good idea. bust that motherfucker. All things in this world can Change, However, let your ETERNITY into the Kingdom of GOD not change. ExpressFridayVigil
Never let that loser see the light of day. SadieMaeTN Good best seat in the house for him Self defense He should be set free. Self defense! It is a travesty that this young man is being treated like a criminal when we all saw the footage and we all know he was properly defending himself. KyleRittenhouse is just another canary in the coal mine for the prosecution of American citizens resisting the fascist mob.
SadieMaeTN Good. He's probably waiting for Dump to pardon him though. LOCK him up LOCK him up LOCK him up! Lock him up! What i dont understand is how are we not talking about the ease of access for UNDERAGE kids to become in possession of fire arms Wtf That kid went to a different state in the hopes of some.shit poppin off bc white ameriKKKa can't stand people of color being pissed off!!
Hallelujah!! DavidPatrickBr2 Looks innocent, hang him Lock him up! 👌 SadieMaeTN Good Hate is a two edged sword kid Good riddance Anyone know the over/under on a presidential pardon? I mean, I should hope a murderer gets a life sentence. Except he is innocent. So I don’t think he will spend any life sentence.
Good. As he should be. I sure hope so. He went there to do exactly that... commit murder. His mother should too. Put hm in a cell with Bubba! He doesn’t even understand what he did was wrong cause all the adults in the room failed him. That guy is hoping Trump would set him free if he's re-elected. So it's in people's hand whom to vote for
Oh, look, they cleaned him up to try and make him look human! Actions have consequences. Forget life sentence. How about death sentence? 'Please don't be too nice... When you see this thug being thrown in, rough and you’re protecting him in custody... don't be too nice... OK?' Don't you dare defend yourself against violent rioters!
Lock him up. Incoming shitty opinions- Good! I don't understand the strategy behind fighting extradition. You're going back one way or the other so just waive the damn hearing. Now he likely won't get credit for the time he has served. He needs to be locked up for the rest of his miserable existence as an example to his fellow racists.
Lock him up! Come again. Potential? I fucking hope so. His mother should serve time, as well. GOOD!! It's amazing he was even fighting this. I'd like to think this was in reality a foregone conclusion. Murder is a crime. He should be facing the charge and pay for his crime. Racist gunnuts: Throw the Book at them.
Good Trump can and should pardon this young man. He did the world a favor by standing up to domestic terrorists. Give him death! Good Good Enough!!! he acted in self defense. he did nothing wrong. Rot in jail He can share a cell with good old Donny He was wrong! He deserves to pay the price for his crimes like everyone else! It’s also trumps fault. He’s spread so much vial information.
Yes. As he should Good -he definitely deserves it. Lock Him Up!!!!!!!! lock the whole thing away🙏🏽😭 wonder if the idea that killing people is wrong has even entered his brain yet. He's fekked Meanwhile fascists... ExpressFridayVigil You must first receive the message of THE LORD and accept it to be able to bring a TRANSFORMATION in your life.
Lock. Him. Up. Trump will pardon this terrorist What was it the traitor otherwise known as Mike Flynn once said? Well yeah Tucker Carlson's hero... 'CHRIST JESUS Is the Only MEDIATOR between Mankind and GOD. If you want to Enter the Kingdom Of GOD, You MUST Know and believe in JESUS. ExpressFridayVigil
