Checking the Trial Case: Friday, July 27, 2018 – Judge Christt Andersen, our Judge Christt and Legal Analyst Doug Schoen, Sr. Talk Law in a Jury Trial
[21-4] Kyle Rittenhouse. I showed the jury the reports regarding the Alexandria murder from 4 people and the Charlottesville Mother, Angela Wellford. Judge Christt said it was not enough evidence to convince a jury, and I got all the CNN sources. Judge Christt also allowed us to do DNA testing of the items found, and we did. Five of the items were DNA matches.
The trial may have gone a little longer than we thought, but it was done in just under 13 hours and ended Friday evening.
To summarize, as the man walks and talks to his child, his 8 year old daughter, an unknown man stabs the man’s wife three times in the back, partially stops her on the stairwell, stabs her in the neck, stabs her in the face, stabs her in the head, stabs her in the chest, stabs her in the lower abdomen, stabs her in the throat. Eventually, the man kills the 8 year old child, partially kills her mother. Now, if you add up all the murder wounds, the mystery man could have killed 2-5 people, 1 by stabbing and 1 by finishing the job by shooting.
Kyle Rittenhouse killed 3 people in Charlottesville, in an attack that was never discovered, because it was never investigated.
For over a year, Kyle was the guy in Charlottesville who hit on many women. He was building a successful business, building his own mansion, sending money to his mom. He was known for his fundraising for Trump’s campaigns.
In Charlottesville, he entered a convenience store and smoked marijuana. A man described Kyle as an open-carry type of guy, and who may have had a bulletproof vest. When his car driving by, the man he was talking to asked him to take a look around the store, and to keep an eye out for an African American or a Hispanic male. Before driving away, he sat in the driver’s seat, and still, he never told the man whether or not he was with police.
After all the shootings, he drove through Charlottesville once, to avoid a confrontation, he drove through Charlottesville with bullets in his sights. He then drove to Jack’s Burgers, and tried to rob Jack. The person that managed to get Jack’s money ran away with the gun before Kyle chased after him, firing the gun in the air, and hitting him. Jack himself at this point, ran away with his firearm and fired him in the head. Kyle stood over Jack and shot him once in the head.
Kyle killed 3 people in Charlottesville, in an attack that was never discovered, because it was never investigated.
Why did we walk around, in Charlottesville and elsewhere, as if we didn’t know? Many, many people got shot, and over 5,000 had their lives shattered, and others were seriously injured. Now, what did you do about it?
Not a thing, and that’s what you saw, and why.
You heard how the mother was yelling for her daughter to be “pink the legs”, the word for driving the car with its gas tank, and causing the car to rear-end others before attacking them. You could see, and those jurors were stuck in the middle, how they reacted.
It is safe to say that this judge ordered every jury to vote for 15 out of 18 points on sentencing. The mother didn’t qualify for prison, she qualified for probation, and we heard the judge say she was going to do community service, get counseling, she was going to write the mother a letter of apology, and she had to pay her legal fees, and a small cash fine.
We will hear about this as a unique case, because it is that rare, but I can’t say how different, but it is something every victim does, because every victim has the same chance, and their actions were not addressed. Even though he admitted to killing three people, Kyle walked free. Not one day did his victim ever see him again.
