The Kyle Rittenhouse trial continues onward with the defendant himself testifying to provide his account as to why he needed to kill two people and injure another person in self-defense. One of the strategies employed by the defense team at this point is to ask for a mistrial to be granted with prejudice over alleged prosecutorial misconduct. On several occasions yesterday, the judge in the case, Bruce Schroeder, yelled at Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger. One of the issues Judge Schroeder took issue with was for what he perceived to be a “grave constitutional violation” after Binger criticized Rittenhouse for changing his story based on previous testimony from others in the trial. The defense argued that this was a violation of Kyle’s fifth amendment right to remain silent when charged with a crime. Later on, Binger was excoriated for attempting to introduce evidence that was previously blocked by Judge Schroeder. The two incidents combined led to the defense to request a mistrial to be granted which the judge said he would take under advisement. At this stage in the case, it does not look as though Rittenhouse will be convicted on the homicide charges, and ultimatley it may not even be up to the jury to decide because the judge could intervene.
