Judge Bruce Schroeder of the Kenosha County Court accused prosecutors of a “grave constitutional violation” in the murder trial of Kyle Rittenhouse on Wednesday morning after they tried to comment on his earlier reactions to testimony in the case.
Rittenhouse stunned observers by taking the witness stand in his own defense, something that defendants rarely do in such trials. He recalled the events of Aug. 25 last year, when he fired on members of a mob attacking him during a Black Lives Matter riot. As he began to describe the events leading to the shootings, he broke down, and the trial took a brief recess.
When Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger began his cross-examination, he began by noting that Rittenhouse had opportunities to watch videos of the riot, and to read articles about it, during the months since his arrest. Rittenhouse said that he had seen most of the videos during the trial, and that he tried to avoid reading articles on the Internet about his case because they tended to be inaccurate.
The prosecution then noted that Rittenhouse had been able to watch all of the previous witnesses in the trial, implying that Rittenhouse may have constructed his version of events from previous testimony, rather than his own recollection of events.
At that point, the judge ordered the jury to leave the courtroom. When they had left, he berated the prosecution:
Judge: You need to account for this.
Defense attorney: Your Honor — I don’t want the jury to hear — he’s commenting on my client’s right to remain silent.
Prosecutor: No, Your Honor. I am making the point that after hearing everything int he case, now he’s tailoring his story to what has already been introduced.
Judge: The problem is, this is a grave constitutional violation for you to talk about the defendant’s silence, and that is — and you’re right on the borderline, and you may be over it. But it better stop.
Judge: This is — I can’t think of the case, the initial case on it. But this is not permitted.
The jury then returned and the defense’s objection to the prosecution’s line of questioning was sustained.
Later, Binger again asked Rittenhouse to comment on his previous comments, which had been excluded in a prior ruling, and the judge again told the jury to leave.
The defense demanded that the judge admonish the prosecution, and said that if it happened again, the defense would ask the judge to declare a mistrial with prejudice, preventing the charges from being brought again.
Judge Schroeder exploded at Binger, raising his voice, saying that Binger had entered into areas of testimony that had been ruled out, without warning.
Binger apologized, but kept insisting on responding to the judge. “Don’t get brazen with me!” the judge shouted.
He reminded Binger that he had already told him he was in danger of violating the rule against commenting on the defendant’s pre-trial silence — “which is a well-known rule!” he exclaimed.
“I’m astonished that that would have been an issue,” he continued. “So I don’t want to have another issue, as long as this case continues, is that clear?”
“It is,” Binger responded.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the Jewish Mafia controlled prosecution team wasn’t maneuvering for a mistrial, and then a 2nd mistrial in the future, then they hope that by the 3rd trial the defendant will not have finical help and will be screwed with a lesser experienced public defender.
The truth here is
they are not after Kyle , as much as …
They are after your right, as well as everyone else rights to defend themselves from armed hostiles or anyone intent to do you harm
he’s just the poster boy
Exactly! This has absolutely nothing to do with right and wrong and everything to do with total tyrannical control. We are letting the entire world see what a mockery our so called judicial system really is. the real criminals are running the entire GD show and have been for a long time. That prosecutor should be the one on trial but we know that will never happen. He will probably end up with a promotion for the crimes HE has committed. This is a trial that should have never been. Just like all the ones being held by the DC Jackasses for what they think was an insurrection. They need to see what a real one looks like! I have always said that when they were ready that they would bring the fight to us no matter what we did. I think that was a fairly accurate prediction too. The bastard that shot that girl needs to pay for his crimes too because hes traitor scum of the highest degree. Just look who leo have chosen to protect and it sure isn’t us! JMO
“ I have always said that when they were ready that they would bring the fight to us no matter what we did.”
