Kyle Rittenhouse Jury Verdict – The jury present in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial will deliberate a verdict on Kyle Rittenhouse on Monday, November 15. The jury have already begun the final deliberations following the closing arguments.

Kyle Rittenhouse trial continued on Monday November 15 2021 following the fatal shooting of protesters who also died.

On Monday afternoon, lead prosecutor Thomas Binger finished his closing arguments in Kyle Rittenhouse’s trial. When Rittenhouse fired those shots, he claimed he was acting in self-defense, but Binger argued that Rittenhouse was the one who began the fight in the first place.

“When the defendant provokes the incident, he loses the right to self-defense. You cannot claim self-defense against a danger you create,” Binger told the jury. “If you’re the one who’s threatening others you lose the right to self-defense.”

“When the defendant provokes the situation, he has to exhaust all reasonable means to avoid killing someone,” he said.

In the killing of Huber, Rittenhouse, 18, is charged with intentional homicide and reckless homicide in the death of Rosenbaum.

Binger showed video of Rittenhouse apparently setting down a fire extinguisher and hoisting his AR-15-style rifle.

The prosecutor then re-enacted the event in front of the jury, substituting a water bottle for the fire extinguisher and then raising the genuine weapon in court.

Binger attempted to turn the tables on Rittenhouse’s claims of self-defense, claiming that those in the mob confronting the defendant that night were the ones who were defending themselves.

“I submit to you, ladies and gentlemen, that in this situation, the crowd has the right to try to stop an active shooter,” he said. “They have a right to protect themselves. The defendant is not the only one in the world who has the right to self-defense.”

However, Defense lawyer Mark Richards was not having any of that;

“Ladies and gentlemen, Kyle was not an active shooter, That is a buzzword that the state wants to latch on to because it excuses the actions of the mob”

The prosecution relied largely on video showing the chaos in Kenosha that night, as well as photos of the aftermath.

Some jurors appeared to avoid their gaze from the courtroom TV monitors as Binger exhibited an autopsy photograph of Rosenbaum’s wounded body on a gurney, followed by another image of his damaged hand.

When Binger presented bloodied images of Gaige Grosskreutz, whose right bicep was nearly blown off by Rittenhouse, he seemed to detect jurors squirming. Grosskreutz is a paramedic from Milwaukee’s suburbs who volunteered at the rally.

Judge Bruce Schroeder dismissed one count of unauthorized possession of a deadly weapon by a person under the age of 18 just before closing statements began.

“The reason observers correctly believed the misdemeanor gun charge was a slam dunk is because it’s not disputed that Kyle Rittenhouse was under 17, and that he possessed a gun,” NBC News legal analyst Danny Cevallos said.

“But the criminal statute itself is more complicated than that. For this statute to apply, the defendant had to also violate a hunting regulation that only applied to people under 16. The defense discovered what was essentially an error in the legislation, that Kyle Rittenhouse cannot violate a law that only applies to someone under 16.”
