“Our hearts are with the victims in this case – the individuals killed & wounded by Kyle Rittenhouse as well as the families & community torn apart by the consequences of this deadly violence.

Good morning from #Kenosha!

It's day 15 of the #RittenhouseTrial, and the 4th day of jury deliberations.

I'm in the courtroom today. Judge Schroeder has more unrelated cases -- and it appears jurors may have gone right into deliberation as they have the last few days.
Confirmed with a bailiff, jurors have gone straight to deliberations. #KyleRittenhouse
Yesterday, we didn't hear from jurors at all until the end of the day when the judge asked if anyone had questions when they were being dismissed.

One of the women on the jury asked if she could take a copy of jury instructions home, which Schroeder allowed.

Far-Right conspiracy website with 1998 MS-Paint design energy + infamous for spreading literal fake news + promoting white nationalists + Proud Boys once again exposed in disinfo campaign, after falsely claiming "Leftists" were amassing bricks in #Kenosha. leadstories.com/hoax-alert/202…
This fake story was promoted at the same time that far-Right groups were promoting open violence and murder on social media.
Far-Right conspiracies spread on social media were at the heart of what pushed people like #KyleRittenhouse to murder #BlackLivesMatter protesters. We spoke with a #Kenosha resident last year who described the deadly impact of these lies.

This guy, apparently a former Ferguson cop (many people said this and he seemed to verbally confirm it), has been walking around outside #Kenosha courthouse with a Colt rifle bag, after yesterday showing up at the courthouse with a rifle that he was asked to put away.
After the man who showed up with a rifle bag outside the #Kenosha courthouse was confronted about the bag, he finally opened it.

Rather than his rifle from yesterday, he pulled out a black rubber sex toy.

He apparently was trying to appear armed to plan that gag.
To be clear, this is what he looked like yesterday before police made him put away his actual gun.

Good morning from #Kenosha

It is the 14th day of the #RittenhouseTrial … and the third day for jury deliberations

The front steps of the courthouse are empty for now.
Per @mtarm with the AP, a court official said the jurors have begun deliberations for the day.

They were behind closed doors for nearly 9 hours Monday (with a lunch break) and nearly 8 hours yesterday. #RittenhouseTrial
Yesterday -- jurors asked to see several videos in evidence, including drone video that has now become part of two motions for a mistrial.

The #Rittenhouse defense said it didn't know it had a lesser quality version until last Friday.

Good morning from the #Kenosha County Courthouse.

I'm inside the courtroom as we wait the jurors to return to begin deliberations on the charges against #KyleRittenhouse

Yesterday, jurors were behind closed doors for nearly 9 hours, with a break for lunch.

#RittenhouseTrial
The court reporter just informed us that the #RittenhouseTrial jury has started deliberating.

Judge Schroeder has an unrelated hearing right now -- which is why there is no activity in the courtroom.

I'm assuming they went into the deliberation room right around 9, then.
Nothing new to report here from Kenosha at 10:27 a.m.

Judge Bruce Schroeder walked in the main doors to his courtroom a little bit ago. He has an unrelated hearing in here in a few minutes.

We might get some sort of update then.

The #Rittenhouse case goes to the jury today. It probably won't come back today; regardless, I just want to put some of my thoughts out there for the world today anyhow. A small thread.
2/ I did not watch every second of every day of the trial. But I tried to follow along with good reporters and smart commentators. Most of what I see is skepticism that Rittenhouse will spend even one more day in jail.
3/ We can argue--and people have!--about whether that is the fault of the ADA pushing back against pre-trial rulings, a possibly-racist judge who doesn't know how any technology newer than a slide rule works, the general zeitgeist, whatever.

Good afternoon from #Kenosha.

This is the P.M. thread for the #RittenhouseTrial

Court is returning soon.

Before we return...here is some video -- His mom appeared to mouth the words, "I love you, buddy."
#BREAKING: The Rittenhouse defense is motioning for a MISTRIAL with prejudice. #RittenhouseTrial
The defense is explaining why they're motioning for a mistrial.

It's all in connection to the line of Binger's questioning that Judge Schroeder said was an over reach regarding his right to silence before his trial.

Good morning from #Kenosha!

Today is day 7 of the #RittenhouseTrial.

Yesterday, we heard testimony from the man who survived being shot by Rittenhouse.

Today, we're expecting the state to rest its case.
Judge Schroeder said a lieutenant saw someone outside video recording the jury. The judge said the lieutenant told the man to delete the video, and the judge said the next time, he was instructed to take the phone from the person recording.
The judge was asked if that person has been in the courtroom observing the trial, and the judge said he is not sure.
