Kyle Rittenhouse, accused murderer of Black Lives Matter protestors in Kenosha WI, now in the wind

Rittenhouse recently had his bond terms amended after being photographed in a bar flashing white power signs.

Story:

Kenosha County prosecutors are asking a judge to modify Kyle Rittenhouse’s bond.

The 18-year-old is free on $2 million cash bond, awaiting trial charged with killing two protesters in the aftermath of the Jacob Blake police shooting.

In a motion filed Wednesday, prosecutors said when Rittenhouse went to a Mount Pleasant bar after his arraignment on Jan. 5, he flashed “white power” signs while posing for photos, and was serenaded with the Proud Boys’ anthem.

Rittenhouse was seen in bar surveillance video wearing a T-shirt with the words “Free as F—.”

Among other things, prosecutors want his bond modified so he’s restricted from associating with known militia members or members of white supremacist organizations, saying such an association could intimidate potential witnesses.

The prosecutors also want Rittenhouse to be prohibited from possessing or consuming alcohol or being present in bars and taverns.

A court filing said 90 minutes after his arraignment on Jan. 5, he went with his mother to Pudgy’s Pub.

It also said Rittenhouse consumed three beers at the bar in 90 minutes.

Prosecutors said his use of the symbols could intimidate witnesses.

Rittenhouse’s defense attorney filed a response to the prosecutor’s motion saying he did not object to any of the bond modifications and Rittenhouse had no known affiliations with white supremacy groups.

A hearing for the modifications has not yet been scheduled.

He was 17 at the time of the offenses.

Rittenhouse’s next court appearance was scheduled for March 10.

A jury trial was scheduled to begin March 29.

If convicted, Rittenhouse faces up to life in prison.

He has claimed he acted in self-defense.
