KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — The judge at Kyle Rittenhouse’s murder trial on Monday dismissed a count of possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under 18, a misdemeanor that had appeared to be among the likeliest of the charges to net a conviction for prosecutors.

The judge then launched into 36 pages of legal instructions to the jury, explaining the charges and the laws of self-defense. After that, the two sides were expected to deliver closing arguments, the final word before the jury was to begin deliberations.

The article goes on to state the following:

Rittenhouse, 18, killed two men and wounded a third in the summer of 2020 during a turbulent protest against racial injustice, in a case that has underscored bitter division in the U.S. over guns, protests and law and order. Supporters have hailed him as a hero who took a stand against lawlessness; foes have branded him a vigilante.

On the day Rittenhouse carried an AR-15 rifle on the streets of Kenosha, he was 17 years old.

However, during the proceedings on Monday, the defense argued to the judge that Wisconsin state law provided an exception that could clear Rittenhouse on that count.

Judge Bruce Schroeder dismissed the gun charge after prosecutors conceded that Rittenhouse’s rifle was not short-barreled.

Rittenhouse still faces five counts, including first-degree intentional homicide.

  1. Rittenhouse is seen as a vigilante. Yet Antifa and BLM have gone through towns and destroyed businesses and hurt people even children. Yet there is no accountability for these groups.
