WI Protesters Shot Can’t Be Called Victims

Trial begins Monday for an 18-year-old charged with killing two protesters and injuring a third in Wisconsin. Kyle Rittenhouse from Illinois is seen on video after last year’s shooting, walking down a street with a rifle. His lawyers claim he opened fire in self defense. A judge ruled this week that prosecutors can refer to the men as rioters and looters, but not victims. He said that’s a “loaded” word and prejudicial toward Rittenhouse.
