Skip to comments.'Come On!': Kenosha Judge Didn't Buy Kyle Rittenhouse Prosecutors Downplaying the Rioters' Destructive Acts

Kenosha County Circuit Court Judge Bruce Schroeder was not happy with how prosecutors in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial were downplaying the actions of the rioters on the night the shootings took place.
Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger said any alleged misconduct by Joseph Rosenbaum prior to being shot has no bearing on the case at hand. Rosenbaum was the first person shot by Rittenhouse after Rosenbaum chased him into a car parking lot.
"What I'm hearing the defense say is, for example, 'Mr. Rosenbaum started fires that night.' Well, that has nothing to with the allegation that he chased after Mr. Rittenhouse and tried to physically attack him," Binger said. "Arsonists or alleged arson has nothing to do with an alleged physical assault."
Binger added Rosenbaum being filmed by Townhall that night saying the N-word and taunting the armed civilians at a gas station to shoot him is separate from the actual shooting.
Now that it is confirmed Joseph Rosenbaum was one of the people shot and killed by alleged gunman Kyle Rittenhouse in Kenosha, I filmed him earlier in the night taunting the armed civilians, saying, "Shoot me, n***a." pic.twitter.com/Nn2encm78Y— Julio Rosas (@Julio_Rosas11) August 27, 2020
"If there were any evidence in this case... [that] Mr. Rosenbaum physically attacked anyone else that night, chased anyone else that night, assaulted anyone else that night, threatened anybody with a weapon that night, we can talk about that, but I don't hear any evidence to that effect. All we're talking about is arson, we're talking about being loud and disorderly," Binger continued.
"I can't believe some of the things you're saying. I mean, 'all we're talking about is arson,' come on!" Judge Schroeder interjected.
During the Rittenhouse motions today the State was ridiculed by the judge for saying “all we are talking about here is arson” to which the judge responded “I can’t believe some of the things you’re saying.. come on!” pic.twitter.com/3fVqKxlBUD— John Curtis (@Johnmcurtis) October 25, 2021
The judge previously denied prosecution’s request to admit video of Kyle Rittenhouse’s involvement in previous entanglements as it had nothing to do with Rittenhouse’s right to self defense in a completely separate incident.

Schroeder ruled prosecutors in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial can not use the term "victim" to describe Joseph Rosenbaum, Anthony Huber, and Gaige Grosskreutz while the defense team can use the terms such as "rioter," "looter," or "arsonist" to describe the men Rittenhouse is charged with shooting.
Rumble version..no woke big etch version
Kyle Rittenhouse prosecutor says the mob member didn’t attack anyone else, only arson
I hope the voters throw out the DA after this atrocity. The lengths these vile scum prosecutors go to get convictions is stomach turning. This is a political prosecution.
Can this be true? A fair and non-woke judge?
The delight of an honest judge.
They also leave out that this guy chased Kyle across an entire parking lot tryin to take his gun and Kyle retreated the entire time until he was trapped and could retreat no more. It was kill or be killed. The other two are easy. Kyle was being assaulted on video when he returned fire. If fact, Kyles actions were so measured and precise, especially for a 17 year old, that my whole gun club agrees. ‘If I had to be in a foxhole on the front lines, this is the kind of guy I want with me.”
“I can’t believe some of the things you’re saying. I mean, ‘all we’re talking about is arson,’ come on!” Judge Schroeder interjected.
Wow. The judge might actually be sane.
There’s just too much video on this whole sequence.
The prosecution should drop this. Their corruption prevents them.
“We still have plenty of fair and non woke judges. Despite Dementia Joe and the Dems.”
Yes, but they are rare at the Circuit Court level near major metro areas. Kenosha is just outside of Chicago and Milwaukee.
I admit I would be less surprised to see a unicorn on my lawn.
But who knows?
Miracles have been known to happen.
This judge should be on the US Supreme Court to face off against the three Democrat stooges currently sitting there.
Yeah, they're usually local Democrat stooges.
For example, the one in Grand Junction, Colorado who Secretary of Soros "Riggin' Jena" Griswold lined up to go after Tina Peters when Peters thwarted Riggin' Jena's little plan to wipe her election machine's hard drive on the downlow.
The Democrat stoogejudge [joodge] delivered like a pop machine - put the coins in, out comes a can of soda, exactly the flavor you want.
Mike Nifong was not an outlier.
While we're busy working, paying taxes/the bills and raising children, the Left is infiltrating all the positions of Power, where they can tyrannize us on OUR dime.
Binger better have a new place to move to-—
He is committing professional suicide, IMO.
