Closing arguments were given today, signaling the end of the trial phase in the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial. However, did the prosecutors jump the gun to prosecute Rittenhouse in the first place? Many former prosecutors think that Rittenhouse was defending himself which caused 2 attackers to be killed. Remember, he had the right to defend himself as he was being chased and even knocked down by belligerent attackers. It is pretty assured that he will be found not guilty but the Jury will probably go into deliberations tonight or tomorrow. With the abysmal prosecution performance so far, it looks like the only way for the prosecutors to save face is that someone on the jury does not believe self defense occurred and votes to convict Rittenhouse, although from most sources the jury seems mostly to favor Rittenhouse. At worst, it seems that a hung jury will occur, resulting in a mistrial. At this point, the prosecution will have to make a decision whether to retry the case or not.
