A woman over 50 who served as a juror in the Kyle Rittenhouse case spoke exclusively to Kenosha County Eye Monday night. We will call her Kimberly. Kimberly came across as genuine and kind. She kept all of her answers to our questions very positive. Kimberly told KCE many times times how proud she was of her fellow jurors. “I am very proud of our work. Justice prevailed.”
“Judge Schroeder told us to put away everything we’ve heard and read about the case and decide only based on the evidence seen in court. I thought long and hard about that, and I was able to do it., with honor,” Kimberly said confidently. This was Kimberly’s first ever time serving on a jury and she remembers hearing the same from many of the other jurors as well.

Kimberly didn’t have anything negative to say about any of the lawyers from either side. She did, however tell us that she thought Judge Bruce Schroeder got an “A+” for his overseeing of the case. During the long trial, which Kimberly described as “intense”, Kimberly wanted to act with honor and deliver the right verdict.
When asked about the length of deliberations, Kimberly told us that the jury “went through the thirty-some pages of jury instructions sentence by sentence and every piece of evidence with a fine toothed comb. Every time you watch a video again, you see something new.”
“In my opinion, every member of the jury, all 12 of us were 100% confident in our decision.” said Kimberly. Now that 6 months have passed since the trial started, Kimberly still stands by the jury’s verdict, saying “This case renewed my faith in the Judicial System. When followed properly, [the Judicial System] makes me proud to live in this country.”

Kimberly assured us that the rumor of the Jury waiting for the pizza on the final day of deliberations was just a coincidence. “I didn’t even remember the last meal we ate together, but they fed us well.” Another rumor that Kimberly was able to squash is that the jury heard Schroeder’s multiple admonishments of the prosecution. “Even in the library, we didn’t hear anything in the court room, even when we stopped chatting. We didn’t hear any yelling, ever”
Kimberly’s generous decision to grant us an interview is appreciated and her attitude can be summed up as positive and optimistic. She said many times how proud she was of the 12 jurors that decided the fate of Rittenhouse. “He’s a young man with his whole life ahead of him and I wish him luck.” she said.
He did excellent work on the Kyle Rittenhouse case.

This, and Zimmerman. Critical self-defence cases.
They did their job and did a good one, with a political hot potato case that NEVER should have been brought.
The only one without any honor is the prosecutor, who tried to twist self-defense into a crime.
Trial by jury defeated the leftist lie machine.
I enjoyed this reporting. Nearly made me cry, thinking about how just normalcy is starting to seem out of the ordinary, how far we’ve fallen.
It was one of the zoom things which about a dozen people,including the father of one of the dead punks.
Long story short...when the judge decided that Kyle could remain free the father of the dead punk flipped off the judge.
More proof that the acorn doesn't fall from the tree.
You're right. It certainly can't be relied upon when jurors reasonably believe they might be killed by a leftist mob if they deliver the wrong verdict. If a retrial in a different venue is possible for Chauvin, I hope he gets one.
Kenosha WI: Huber Gives Judge the Middle Finger at Rittenhouse Hearing
Relating to Kenosha, what’s the latest on the motion for a “monument” for the dude that attacked Rittenhouse and was shot???
You'll have to narrow it down a bit, lol.
Anthony Huber is the guy’s name...Kenosha has put forth a motion for a monument for him...He’s the guy who hit Rittenhouse in the head with a skateboard and Rittenhouse killed him...
OK...Just found this:
After public outcry, the memorial plan for Anthony Huber, the victim of Kyle Rittenhouse, was canceled. April 29, 2022
Me too. But then we got the J6 prisoners.
Thank you JB. I am glad to hear about the outcry.
(I know this wasn't you)
No...I copied and pasted that...
One of the things that most folks won’t think about, is that
Kyle never focused on one person from a distance, and then
ran up to them and fired.
He was approached by numerous people. They were trying to
harm him. He reacted.
Reacting to a threat is not against the law.
We also have to remember that the mindset of Leftist youth
is that they can never be wrong. “Don’t let them tell you,
you are wrong.” WRONG!
These kids weren’t messing with one Conservative they
outnumbered and was defenseless. They tried to swarm
him and they reaped the whirlwind.
Not me. Courts are crap and jurors are crap. All too often they render ridiculous decisions that are completely disconnected from reality. (George Floyd and the Ahmed Arbery cases.)
What the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict demonstrates is that "even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in awhile."
Not in the Derick Chauvin case, or the McMichaels case.
Look at all the January 6 political prisoners getting convicted in DC.
Modern juries are often stupid and irrational and I am no longer certain that long ago juries did any better.
The courts are a crap shoot.
