Yes. They are currently on a break right now. But the judge has already had to stop it twice due to the prosecutor bringing up things that have been explicitly told not to bring up, ie constitutional violations.

Add to that the prosecutor is actually trying to bring Kyle's Tiktok username into it, and pressing him about killing other players in Call of Duty. It's a train wreck to be sure, unless the prosecutor's actual goal is to be cast in a Marvel origin movie of Justin Hammer.

Jesus.

These prosecutors sound like clowns.

Doubt it. Why would he do that? He has a career to think about and intentionally blowing his own case would be a black mark on his career. Wouldn't make any sense.

Effing it up this badly isn't helping either way, I just suspect that the cops and prosecutor really, really don't want to send the nice white boy up the river.
It makes more sense to me if it's "accidentally-on-purpose".

This is not an attack on you but, why does "white" have to pop up in all descriptors? Is he an admitted white supremacist? A racist? Has he shown signs of being one of the privileged? Like I said, not an attack on you, because it pops up all the time. And not just "white", but "black", or "asian" or "muslim". Like that is just one of the reasons why he should be guilty. We use these descriptors all the time, media uses them for clicks, politicians use them to stir up sympathy, etc. I wish it would just be "a nice boy" or even "a priveleged boy", or "a certified psychopath", etc.

They're incompetent, that much is obvious. I don't know if it's intentional or not, but my my hunch is they really don't give a shirt who KR is.

COVINGTON, La. (AP) — A former sheriff is facing life in a Louisiana state prison for sexually abusing boys, and still awaits trial on federal corruption charges related to his two decades as the top lawman in St. Tammany Parish.

Former St. Tammany Sheriff Jack Strain was convicted Monday on four counts of aggravated rape involving juvenile victims, which carries a mandatory life sentence, New Orleans-area news outlets reported. The allegations included crimes that took place before and during his time as sheriff, a job he held for five terms before losing reelection in 2015.

Strain, 58, has pleaded not guilty to charges in a 16-count federal indictment accusing him of using his authority as sheriff to try to steer profits from a $1 million work-release contract to himself, his family and friends.............

Why is the Rittenhouse trial posts in this thread and not the Wisconsin shooting thread? (or it's own?)

Too bad this piece of sheet is going to be in protective custody for the rest of his life. It'd be nice for him to be subjected to the same sheet he regularly put people through in the St. Tammany Parish Jail for a few months before getting shipped off.

I haven't followed this closely at all except for catching some of the stuff happening now so I don't know if I'm right or not, but by the way it seems to be going I think they seem incompetent because they've overreached in prosecuting this.

I'm inclined to believe that KR was a cocky little butt crevasse who should have stayed away.. but the murder case against him seems weak based upon what I've read from the witnesses.

Anjanette Young was getting ready for bed after a long day at her job as a social worker when police used a battering ram to smash the front door of her Chicago apartment.


She was naked, alone and terrified in February 2019 when police drew their guns at her and rushed into her home, yelling, “Hands up,” as they announced they were executing a search warrant for a man with a firearm.


Young, sobbing and screaming, pleaded with police dozens of times, “You’ve got the wrong house!” But the group of male officers handcuffed her for 40 minutes, including 10 minutes when she was not allowed to put clothes on, until they determined they were not at the right apartment and she did not commit a crime, according to recently filed government records.


“Oh, my God. This cannot be right!” she said, according to body-cam footage. “How can this be legal?”
Nearly three years later, the city’s Civilian Office of Police Accountability is calling for eight Chicago officers to be fired or suspended for their role in the botched home raid.

A new report issued Wednesday raises nearly 100 allegations of misconduct against 15 officers involved in the raid.
The report found that officers did not adhere to the “knock-and-announce guidance” that should have allowed Young to put on clothes before police entered her home — one of the many policies and laws violated during the botched raid.

Several did not activate their body cameras. None of the officers at the scene received more than a few hours of warrant-related training as a consequence, according to the report…….

These worthless excuses for human beings walk amongst us everyday and in every setting. They are the worst of the worst. And I see way too many people look the other way to cover for sexual preditors. The ones that floor me is when members of the church cover for the preachers that prey on members of the congregation.

Disgusting behavior.
