Judge Rules that Men Shot by Kyle Rittenhouse May be called “Rioters” and “Looters,” but not “Victims”


Kyle Rittenhouse just recieved a big pre-trial victory from the judge presiding over his case.

The ruling allows his lawyers to refer to the men he shot in self-defense as “looters,” “rioters,” and “arsonists.”

However, the judge also ruled that prosecutors may not refer to them as “victims.”

Curcuit Judge Bruce Schroeder made the ruling on Monday.

He said that using the term “victim” would be prejudicial to Rittenhouse.

“The word victim is a loaded, loaded word,” Judge Schroeder said.

This is a big moral victory for Rittenhouse, who maintains that he acted in self-defense back in August of 2020, when he shot three men in Kenosha.

Two of the men died while the third, Gaige Grosskreutz, sued Kenosha police and claimed that they “enabled” Rittenhouse.
