We haven’t done the Rittenhouse betting pool yet

I suspect he will be acquitted of the big charges. The wild card is the incredible chaos and confusion fomented by the prosecution—there may well be some sort of  “lesser” charge that emerges from this whole thing, as the jury tries to make sense of both the instructions, and the prosecution’s efforts. I mean, nothing would surprise me at this point. ‘Disturbing the peace’ or some shit like that.

What do y’all think the result will be?

I’m in for some kind of conviction to try to keep Kenosha from burning again which will be declared a mistrial and acquital from the bench, some actual violence until the National Guard and police shoot about 2 dozen rioters stopping the riots in their tracks. Then Rittenhouse goes all Covington on everyone in the mainstream media and Joe Biden who might have to sell a couple houses and steal from Hunter’s art sales to pay his share leading Rittenhouse to be our 52nd President.

Beat that.

And, that’s where this chapter ends. Not only did the citizen jury come to the correct conclusion (IMHO) but the judge reportedly granted the “mistrial with prejudice” AFTER the verdict came in—an act that speaks volumes to the prosecution. For once, the thing that looked and quacked like a duck was seen for a duck, on all sides.

Sorry I missed this before the fact.

I would have guessed full conviction. Not because I think that was the legally justifiable result, but because I expected the jury to buckle to pressure.

Late to the party, but I suspected a hung jury, 8 or 9 voting to acquit and 3 or 4 votting to convict.

Some people cannot understand or accept the fact that not every homicide is a murder. Also, some people don’t care what the law is, they just think that somebody has to go to prison if someone else dies.

And I still don’t know how to correct typos here. I need to learn, ’cause I make a lot.
