Is Rittenhouse crapping his pants right now?

The rightwingers I know thought that this would be a quick acquittal. But time is passing, and passing, and passing.... which by now means, of course, that somebody on the jury believes he's guilty of at least one major charge.

Maybe even REAL tears by now.


Yes, I know... this didn't deserve its own thread.

34. There's no substantial evidence either way.

 

https://versustexas.com/blog/length-of-jury-deliberations/

Just another urban legend. In fact, you have some saying the exact opposite:

Criminal defense attorney Michael Cardoza says that in his experience, a quick verdict usually favors the defendant. “But this is an emotional case, even compared to murder cases, because we're talking about pedophiles and child molestation. The jurors are going to go over this evidence very, very carefully. This may well mean they can‘t come to a verdict and that they‘re deadlocked.”

63. The past criminal

records of the victims are not relevant, in fact they should not have been discussed in the court room. Kyle's victims could as easily have been a priest, a social worker or even an undercover law enforcement officer!

Thirty years served consecutively with no parole is too good for Kyle. And Mamma Rittenhouse should be next!

85. Think of it this way

 

The onus of proof is on the prosecution.

If the jury can’t decide, then the failure belongs to the prosecution, not the defense.

The defense has the favor going in, innocent unless proven guilty.

The burden is ALWAYS on the prosecution.

People here lose their shit over a simple fucking statement. FAVOR doesn’t mean the defense will prevail. It means they have the odds in their favor.

If the prosecution proved their case beyond a reasonable doubt and it was crystal clear, the jury would come back right away.

Clearly, that isn’t the case here.

That doesn’t mean the defendant won’t be found guilty. It just means the odds are in his favor.

For fuck’s sakes people.

93. No way to think of it.

 

We don't know what the jury is discussing. Anyone who is trying to predict the verdict based on how long the jury meets is probably also someone who believes Punxsutawney Phil can predict when winter ends.

There is no evidence whatsoever to indicate either way. It's a myth. There are 'no odds in his favor' because the jury is taking its time. That is just pure make believe and the link I posted proves this.

17. While that's the maxim...

…that generally applies in clear-cut trials where the prosecution seems to have easily demonstrated guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. In a case like this, where the judge was basically skewing everything in the defense’s favor, the lack of a quick acquittal seems to portend something quite different. While I don’t think he’ll be convicted on everything, this does suggest a guilty verdict on at least some of the charges.

39. I Was On A Jury In March 2020

Last edited Thu Nov 18, 2021, 05:27 PM - Edit history (1)

We deliberated 20 minutes. I was foreman, and I only directed the discussion, never expressed an opinion.
I took one vote. 12 Not Guilty votes.
20 minutes.
The prosecution, to me, didn't even prove a crime was actually committed, let alone prove beyond doubt the defendant did it.
I'm with you.
I don't think the jury deliberating longer is an indicator of a decision on guilt or innocence, particularly when there are multiple options as to crime & culpability.
Edited because Celerity noticed a boneheaded mistake.

52. Not in my 25 years of criminal defense trial work

Quick verdicts were likely to be acquittals in my jurisdiction—the longer they were out the more likely they would convict on something. My guess is there’s a DUMP humper or two on the jury holding up a conviction(s).

Yesterday the thread about the defense motion for new trial drew similar ‘expert’ analysis.

I ask the question, in a criminal trial does the jury need to be unanimous for a guilty decision? If so, I can't imagine a jury being picked anywhere in the nation that wouldn't have at least one white supremacist or Trumphumper seated on it........

While I understand your sentiment, but if we encourage that, it should be directed toward those actually culpable.
His parents may be a couple of tools who raised a small minded wannabe vigilante, but that doesn't make them guilty of any crime.

from a stimulus unemployment check. It was $1200, and he.decided then to take the money and buy a.gun with it. He wasn't old enough to buy it for himself, so he got a friend in Wisconsin to buy it for him. The friend was told that he was really buying the gun for Kyle's mom. The friend has been charged for providing a weapon to a minor, and he might get up to 25 years for that.

He’s already hired by Matt Gaetz as a Congressional Intern. And News Max said they would hire him the day he is acquitted. Obviously the only skill for either is Kill Dems and lie your ass off. He fits right in. Morals, Jesus, guns Kings and FreeDumb.

102. Sarcasm🤨

Shoulda said he is “as good as” hired. If they take, steal, house and senate, don’t underestimate how absurd they will go to please MAGA’s. Except passing ANY policies to help em. Hell, they got Boerbert, Trailer Queen, Gaetz, Cawthorn etc in much higher positions.

41. Mark Who?!?

Seriously, Zimmerman was a real dead ender before he shot Tryvon. Sure he got some fame but he's not capable of really doing anything with it. Someone who has to file a $100M lawsuit against his victim's family isn't a person with any real redeeming capabilities to function in modern society.

I can't imagine Kyle will do much better. Sure he'll get some publicity and $$ from all this. But I suspect he'll be embroiled in some lawsuits with his parents over stolen money or various tax scams that will be made on his behalf. I don't think he or his parents are that smart. More apt to spend their winnings on weird vacations, mobile homes or speculative land deals.

Life is a long slog. There are precious few who can manage it with grace and courage.

87. Or his front teeth busted out.

The people who find prison rape and/or inmates as wives (sex chattel) a good or humorous thing, need to do some self reflection. I know a guy who spent 10 years in state prison. He has horror stories about men who these folks are giggling about, or wishing those tortures upon.

Same thing for the those who think women prisoners aren't raped by fellow inmates.

EarlG made comment recently about educating oneself before commenting on on a certain issue. This prison rape topic is definitely another one, where he needs to step in. Way too many prison rape jokes allowed, and way too much ignorance and acceptance of prison sexual violence.

For the glorification of sexual violence to make an appearance.
I had hoped maybe we were becoming better.

I have said before and will continue to say inmate on inmate violence is not a benefit of the system. It is a flaw that people who claim to be progressive should oppose in all cases.

It's a reality whether you or anyone else are offended by it. And FYI all prison sex is not violent. Some people are just fine with it.
Oh yes, and do you think women behind bars are being subjected to violence and if so, how does that happen. ?
Reality and idealism can sometimes collide.

72. Uh-huh, sure

He'll be fine...
That leadership will reward one of their own by making him a highly prized wife

Being used as chattel and sex trafficked isn't what I would call "fine".

I did not comment about women in prison however I cannot recall a time where someone posted a 'joke' or mentioned the reality of future violence related to a woman going to prison. The commentary is only used to reference males who are heading to prison. Why do you suppose that is? Do people think women's prison isn't as violent as men's, that rape by guards or other inmates doesn't happen?

I believe a woman's future in prison isn't much different than a man's and will call out anyone who makes light if it, should that ever happen.

Women inmate violence before commenting further.

Women inmates are most certainly sexually assaulted by other inmates.

He might as well have been doing closing arguments for the defense, as well as PR to the press on the courthouse steps. You'd think James Sensenbrenner was coaching him.

Or it could be just the opposite.

58. If you cut through the politics around this case . . .

You get an immature young person who put himself in danger's way, fully armed, with the intent to big note himself.

He killed two people, maimed a third.

In any other country, jury deliberation would take 15 minutes. Ten of those spent drinking the tea/coffee and biscuits supplied in the jury room.

Oh, nice! Coffee and biscuits! Oh yeah, guilty as sin, but give me time before going out again to drink my coffee and eat a few more biscuits!
