WI: Kenosha braces for Rittenhouse verdict

Source: Daily Mail [UK]

“Residents of Kenosha, Wisconsin are bracing for potential riots as a jury prepares to consider the murder charges against Kyle Rittenhouse, who killed two and shot a third during unrest last summer. By pleading with the judge to allow the jury to consider lesser charges, prosecutors have all but admitted that they failed to prove their top charges against 18-year-old Rittenhouse, who argued self-defense in emotional testimony. … On Sunday, buildings around Kenosha were boarded up in anticipation of a violent response if Rittenhouse is acquitted, and Governor Tony Evers has ordered 500 Nation Guard troops on standby to assist local law enforcement.” (11/15/21)
