    Rittenhouse extradited to Kenosha to face 2 homicide charges, and 1 attempted homicide charge. Bail set a $2M. His legal team has collected well over that amount in donations from militia groups, gun rights groups and fringe right wing nutjobs.

    In the article in the link following, there is a photo of a guy holding his chest with his skateboard in front of him on the ground, (he died on the spot) and Rittenhouse pointing shooting and wounding the man in front of him. Also included in the article in the link below is a copy of the charges/indictment for Rittenhouse.

    I played pretend I was a Kenosha cop the other day with my wife. I told her I was a Kenosha cop driving down the street in my cruiser and said I saw a very young guy carrying a rifle in the street. I asked my wife what should I do? Should I pull over, get out and ask the youngster for some ID, or, should I just slow down and ask him if he wants a doughnut?

    I know, I know, you guys probably think I'm cold hearted bastard, but the police departments here have some really, really ignorant asses working for the taxpayers.

    By the way folks, the straw purchaser of the firearm Rittenhouse had in his possession? He was arrested and charge with a federal crime, buying a firearm for a minor which was used in a crime.

    "Kyle Rittenhouse is out of jail," he wrote. "God bless ALL who donated to help #FightBack raise required $2M cash bail."

    Wood wrote that actor Ricky Schroder and Mike Lindell, the Donald Trump-supporting chief executive of My Pillow, Inc., put up some the money, thanking them for "putting us over the top."

    Rittenhouse is next expected in court for a prelminary hearing on Dec. 3.

    Rittenhouse's attorneys and evangelical groups have been raising money for his defense, including efforts to raise money for his bond.

    Today, the city of Kenosha has blocked off streets in preparation of the announcement of what the legal system intends to do with the cop who shot Jacob Blake in the back 7 times. I suppose they're expecting something bad to happen.

    Shortly after pleading not guilty to murder and weapons charges earlier this month, Kyle Rittenhouse showed up at a bar in Mount Pleasant, Wis., clad in a T-shirt that said “Free as F---,” prosecutors said. Then the 18-year-old allegedly drank three beers, posed for photos with members of Proud Boys and flashed a “white power” hand sign.

    The excursion raised red flags for prosecutors handling the state’s case against Rittenhouse, who is charged with fatally shooting two men and wounding a third during an August protest following the police shooting of a Black man in Kenosha, Wis.

    On Wednesday, the Kenosha County District Attorney’s Office asked a judge to forbid Rittenhouse from drinking alcohol, using “white supremacist” signs and spending time with members of the Proud Boys, a male-chauvinist group with ties to white nationalism.

    Sure that helps. I guess they are getting more crazy by the day here. Just let these people roam free and only "use words" that will help for sure. The guy should have been in jail a long time ago and sentenced for "murder", but yeah Trump loves him, so all is rosy. Ever seen any other country like that? Except "banana republics?

    Prosecutors are seeking an arrest warrant and higher bond for Kyle Rittenhouse, alleging he failed to inform the Wisconsin courts of where he is living as he awaits trial for shooting three people, two of them fatally, during August protests in Kenosha.

    The motion filed Wednesday asks a Kenosha County judge to add $200,000 on top of the $2 million the 18-year-old’s lawyers posted to free him in November. Rittenhouse lived in far north suburban Antioch at the time of the shootings but has lived at an undisclosed location since his release.

    In support of their requests, prosecutors wrote that Rittenhouse has “minimal incentive to comply” with his bond conditions because the $2 million wasn’t his. Rittenhouse’s lawyers raised it through a campaign that appealed to the political right, where Rittenhouse is popular. Prosecutors described that fundraising push as a “dubious internet fundraising campaign.”

    (Mike Lindell, Mr. My Pillow, paid a large chunk of that $2 million bond).

    In any other city, county or state, a prosecutor would ask a judge to revoke a person's bond if that person violated conditions of the bond, but not in the white supremacist state of Wisconsin.

    The city of Minneapolis just agreed to pay $27 million to George Floyd's family.

    The trial for Derek Chauvin will start soon, but the judge is recommending a charge of 3rd degree murder. Minnesota is one of the only 3 states in the country that have a 3rd degree murder charge.

    I think a better word would be "allowing" or "including" rather than "recommending". The judge is allowing a 3rd degree murder charge to be considered by the jury because the state's appeals courts instructed him to reconsider his ruling because they were of the opinion that 3rd degree murder should be included.
