Crime: Watch Live: Kyle Rittenhouse Motion Hearing

State of Florida quickly files emergency motion to reinstate DeSantis' mask ban in schools

  State of Florida quickly files emergency motion to reinstate DeSantis' mask ban in schools Gov. Ron DeSantis’ administration Wednesday night filed an emergency motion asking an appeals court to reinstate a stay. Your browser does not support this video The 41-page motion seeks to put on hold a Sept. 2 ruling by Circuit Judge John Cooper that said DeSantis overstepped his constitutional authority in an executive order aimed at preventing districts from requiring students to wear masks during the COVID-19 pandemic. Cooper on Wednesday went further by lifting an automatic stay that had been triggered when the DeSantis administration appealed the Sept. 2 ruling to the 1st District Court of Appeal.

Kyle Rittenhouse, 18, is scheduled for a pre-trial hearing on Friday in the fatal shooting of Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and injury of Gaige Grosskreutz, 27. The hearing will focus on evidentiary issues. Chief among those issues is a prosecution request for jurors to be allowed to watch a video that allegedly shows Rittenhouse discussing his desire to shoot a Black man with his “AR”.

Kenosha County Judge Bruce Schroeder will also consider a request by the prosecution to bar the defense’s alleged “use-of-force expert” John R. Black from testifying during trial.

Friday 5: How Mario Andretti sees ‘a lot of myself’ in Kyle Larson

  Friday 5: How Mario Andretti sees ‘a lot of myself’ in Kyle Larson Some compare Kyle Larson to Mario Andretti, A.J. Foyt and Tony Stewart for winning in multiple forms of racing. Andretti shares what's made him a fan of Larson.“That’s his life,” Andretti told NBC Sports about Larson. “That’s what he loves. I identify with that. That’s the reason I gravitated toward him in a sense of being particularly interested in what he’s doing.

There will also be rulings on several key requests by the defense–including whether to bar evidence that Rittenhouse allegedly hit a woman in July 2020 who was involved in an altercation with his sister. Another high-profile evidentiary request from the defense is whether or not jurors can be told the defendant went to a bar with the far-right Proud Boys street gang in January after he was charged while wearing a shirt that read: “Free as Fuck.”

Court is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. CT / 11:00 a.m ET. You can watch in the player above.

The case is a conservative cause célèbre. As seen on video, Rittenhouse, then 17, opened fire in a nighttime confrontation with protesters amid the police shooting of local man Jacob Blake.

The defendant maintains he was protecting himself. His actions, prosecutors said, were illegal. Rittenhouse was charged with multiple counts including first-degree reckless homicide and first-degree intentional homicide. The accused teenager–an Illinois resident who said he was in Wisconsin for lifeguard work and showed up to the scene with a rifle–and other armed conservatives have been criticized by prosecutors and commentators alike, accused of looking for trouble at the Blake protests. Rittenhouse, additionally, was too allegedly young to buy the firearm or possess it under Wisconsin law.

Among their multiple motions filed, prosecutors were hoping to admit evidence Rittenhouse had an association with the Proud Boys, a group linked to political violence.

“I feel I had to protect myself,” he told The Washington Post in an interview last year. “I would have died that night if I didn’t.”

Jury selection is scheduled to begin November 1.
