Judge Instructs Jury In Rittenhouse Trial

The judge in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial is instructing the jury. Eighteen-year-old Rittenhouse claims he killed two men and injured a paramedic in self defense last year during protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin. A judge is allowing lesser charges to be considered in one of the three shootings. Jurors will get the case after closing arguments. The judge dismissed a lesser weapons charge against Rittenhouse earlier today.

meanwhile, Wisconsin cities are preparing in anticipation of a verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial. The governor has 500 National Guard troops and hundreds of officers ready ahead of closing arguments which begin today.
