The Kyle Rittenhouse Trial - A Tale of Two Videos

Did the prosecution purposely SABOTAGE the defense?

A thread Where did the original video file originate?

On August 25, 2020, Brandon Beamon used a drone to capture video of the riots and unrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Beamon was working for a now dissolved company ‘UrbanAired’ which likely violated FAA laws that night.

Wisconsin State Crime lab evidence report detailing the creation of the 6 AI enhanced video files.

I do not personally see anything nefarious in this report but do not know what to make of the differences in the file name for the video that was received. The long file name (listed first) is a typical file name that an Apple device would use.

The other name is likely a date/time associated with the original file. But for this to be true the drone would have continued to record after the shooting for several minutes.

Manufactured Miracle evidence.

That’s what the prosecution did in the Kyle Rittenhouse case. Four days into the trial a man who refused to be identified transferred a video file to a detective. Then Det Antaramian testified that he could see Rittenhouse aiming at Ziminski. Then it’s off to the state crime lab to “enhance” the video. They of course did this while sharing a 4x lesser quality version with the defense team. Millions of pixels/details were added during the “enhancing” process. Later they further “enhanced” 4 still images from the video.

This is likely a question that we will never have an acceptable answer to.

Detective Antaramian testified that the drone video was sourced from “UrbanAired” this is the only testimony regarding the videos origin.

Nothing about the type of drone. Nothing about the pilot. Detective Antaramian first learned about the drone video after the video was played during a segment on Fox News.

The twitter account @freekyleusa posted about the Fox clip months ago and in later posts questioned if the prosecution was withholding evidence (the original).

Judge Schroeder warned the prosecution of the danger of the inclusion of the doctored images.

Schroeder “..or which phone I’m going to buy… this is being used to decide if someone’s innocent or guilty of a crime…”

Schroeder “this is going to fall like a house of cards.” This is one of the doctored images admitted into evidence. I use the word doctored bc the image was created using AI algorithms to insert pixels where pixels did not previously exist. This was done purposely push a false narrative that Rittenhouse aimed his rifle.

The cat er dog is out of the bag. In June we pre-purchased a #FrenchBulldog that we named “Nova”. A few weeks later a separate breeder contacted me to tell me that she had a puppy born with a cleft palate that would be euthanized if someone didn’t take her in. She sent photos. ImageImageImageImage The pup would require around the clock care, being fed with a tube inserted through her mouth and into her stomach, and the chances of her surviving were still not great (so said several vets and the breeder). This is her cleft palate. Image
