This is such a fuck-up it makes we wonder if the prosecutor wants Kyle Rittenhouse to get off.
Prosecutor: “So your interpretation of what [Rosenbaum] was trying to do… is complete guesswork.” @RichieMcGinniss: “Well, he said ‘fuck you’ and then he reached for the weapon.” pic.twitter.com/NK6Sbfh8vy

I’m going to quote Brown v. United States (1921):
“Detached reflection cannot be demanded in the presence of an uplifted knife. Therefore, in this Court, at least, it is not a condition of immunity that one in that situation should pause to consider whether a reasonable man might not think it possible to fly with safety or to disable his assailant rather than to kill him.”
Detached reflection really can’t be demanded in the presence of a guy shouting “fuck you” and reaching for a weapon.
