Katie Pavlich responded with “The Five” to a back-and-forth closing hearing on Monday at the Kenosha County Courthouse in Wisconsin.
Rittenhouse shot and killed 36-year-old Joseph Rosenbaum and 26-year-old Anthony Huber from the AR-15. August 2020 protests and riots In Kenosha, police exploded after firing at Jacob Blake, who was paralyzed from the waist down. Guy Grosskreutz, who was shot by a third-person Rittenhouse, survived and testified last Monday.
Katie Pavlich is bombarded by evidence she brought to the stand, such as Grosskrutz, who testified that it was not until the teenager was shot and pointed his gun at Rittenhouse.
“The prosecution has repeatedly changed their story based on their own evidence to blow up the case. For example, Kyle Rittenhouse admitted that he shot himself after he showed his Glock 19 in his face, so Guy Groskrutz testified and thus proved the case in self-defense.”

The prosecution took up storytelling to persuade the jury to watch Rittenhouse carefully, looking to “provoke” the crowd. He argued that the defendant misused the deadly force in a situation where it was not necessary.

“It certainly doesn’t make sense for someone to hold an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle with powerful ammunition. And the first thing you can do to protect yourself, younger than him, is to chase down someone who is unarmed. He is riding into him,” said Assistant District Attorney James Krause.
The defense attacked the prosecutor’s methods and asserted that the 17-year-old Rittenhouse acted in self-defense. After the police firing of Jacob Blake, he tried to explain the case in a case of illegality.
“Ladies and gentlemen, [assistant DA] Mr. Binger and I rode around until the cows came home. They were rioters. He was not a performer. The protesters got down from court the night before? Yes. There were people who would make a fair show. These people were rioting, ”said defense attorney Mark Richards.
Pavlich mentioned how Kenosha was preparing for possible riots by deploying the National Guard.
“Kyle was put on trial in a court of public opinion. There are National Guard troops guarding the site to make sure the place is burnt again. View all footage and … evidence of this trial reopened last summer and how it was allowed in city after city. People were killed as a result of this riot. And it was forgiven again and again, ”he said. “People are threatening to riot if Kyle is not punished. Who are they protecting in this case?”
She continued, “Do you justify Rosenbaum, a sex offender, a child rapist? Is he advocating domestic abuser Huber, who is accused of strangling a criminal? Is that what we are doing here? Are you going to defend the person who attacked him? Is that you? Are you going to save and burn the city again? I mean, it comes down to this. “
