The prosecution in the Rittenhouse murder trial has unbelievably accused teenager Kyle Rittenhouse of being “too cowardly to use his own fists” when a career criminal and violent rioter attacked him.
Both the lead prosecutor Thomas Binger as well as the Assistant District Attorney James Kraus thought it was a good idea to accuse Rittenhouse of unfairly bringing a gun to a fistfight.
The prosecution also failed to mention that 26-year-old Gaige Grosskreutz admitted in court that he was pointing a gun that night at Rittenhouse when the teenager fired.
Kraus said, “Clearly, if there is a provocation, he is guilty.”
“But even outside of provocation, why do you get to immediately just start shooting.”
“As Mr. Binger said, he brought a gun to a fistfight and he was too cowardly to use his own fists to fight his way out. He has to start shooting.”

Kraus continued, “Let’s assume for a minute, yeah, Joseph Rosenbaum is chasing after the defendant because he wants to do some physical harm to him.”
“He’s an unarmed man. This is a bar fight. This is a fistfight,” he continued.
“This is a fight that maybe many of you have been involved in. Two people. Hand to hand. Who are throwing punches or pushing or shoving or whatever.”
“But what you don’t do, is you don’t bring a gun to a fistfight,” Binger added.

Constitutional scholar and Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz made a bombshell statement amid the trial of 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse who is accused of murder.
“He should be acquitted,” Dershowitz said. And then he should due media organizations for smearing him, Dershowitz added.
Dershowitz’s comments came during an appearance on Newsmax. Rittenhouse is currently on trial for killing two men and wounding a third while protecting a business during the left-wing riots that rocked Wisconsin for three nights last year.
“If I were a juror, I would vote that there was reasonable doubt that he did act in self-defense, and then he’ll bring lawsuits and that’s the way to answer.”
“I’ve sued CNN, the Covington people have sued CNN. You know, the idea is to make the media accountable for deliberate and willful lies, and that is consistent with the First Amendment,” he continued.
“The bigger deal is that all of us civil libertarians, all the liberals, all the ACLU-types, The New Yorker, The New York Times, they all attack the judge for simply applying the Constitution.”
“These phony civil libertarians couldn’t care less about due process, about free speech. All they want is due process for me, but not for thee,” Dershowitz said.
“They’re taking sides, They’re cheering, they’re rooting. The New Yorker, that trashy magazine, … already dubbed [Rittenhouse], without any evidence, the ‘American Vigilante.’”
“People are picking sides, and they are picking on the judge because the judge has made some fair rulings under the Constitution,” he said.
“If the judge had made, with the same attitude, rulings in favor of the prosecution, the civil libertarians, the liberals, the left, The New York Times would be praising him to the sky. It’s so biased. We don’t have justice out there. We have partisan injustice,” he said.
