State Witnesses Continue to Aid Defense in Rittenhouse Trial

Man Kyle Rittenhouse Shot Had Loaded Handgun, Witness Testifies | The Daily Wire

A witness at the murder trial of Kyle Rittenhouse testified Friday that one of the men Rittenhouse shot was holding a gun that was loaded and ready to be fired.

Jason Lackowski, the seventh witness called by the prosecution, said he helped Gaige Grosskreutz, who survived after Rittenhouse shot and injured him in his right arm during riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin last summer. Lackowski said he helped apply a tourniquet to Grosskreutz’s arm and emptied his handgun, and that was when he observed that the gun had a bullet in the chamber.

And under cross:

Rittenhouse’s defense attorneys asked Lackowski about what he heard the crowd yelling, and Lackowski testified that he heard a protester shout “Get him!”

Remember, the defense is merely trying to show that Rittenhouse had reason to believe that his life was in danger.
