An Illinois judge on Friday ordered a 17-year-old accused of killing two demonstrators in Kenosha, Wisconsin, to be extradited across the border to stand trial on homicide charges, saying it wasn’t his role to vet a case brought by Wisconsin protestors and approved by a Wisconsin judge.

In his six-page written ruling rejecting Kyle Rittenhouse’s bid to remain in Illinois, Judge Paul Novak noted that defense attorneys had characterized the Wisconsin charges as politically motivated.

“This Illinois court shall not examine any potential political impact a Wisconsin District Attorney potentially considered in his charging decision,” Novak wrote. He added that, according to Illinois law, it is not for an Illinois judge to “reevaluate probable cause determined by a Wisconsin court.”

The ruling came several hours after a hearing on the matter. It was not immediately clear how soon Rittenhouse might be transferred to Wisconsin or whether he might appeal.

The shootings happened Aug. 25, two days after a white police officer trying to arrest Jacob Blake shot the 29-year-old Black man seven times in the back, paralyzing him from the waist down. Video of the police shooting sparked outrage and helped spur on the protests.

Rittenhouse’s case has become a rallying point for some conservatives who see him as a patriot who was exercising his right to bear arms during unrest. Others portray him as a domestic terrorist who incited protesters by showing up wielding a rifle.

At Friday’s hearing, Rittenhouse’s lawyer said he’d had a change of heart since notifying the court that he planned to call witnesses, including Rittenhouse’s mother. Instead, John Pierce focused on what he called “fatal defects” in extradition papers.

A local prosecutor said the law is unambiguous in requiring Rittenhouse’s extradition.

“You can imagine the chaos if someone can commit a crime and step over the (state borderline) and get sanctuary,” Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Stephen Scheller told Novak.

Rittenhouse sat at a defense table wearing a dress shirt and tie — mask across his face. At least once, he turned to look at his mother, Wendy Rittenhouse, on a spectactors’ bench. Later, as officers led him from the hearing room, she began to cry.

In his ruling, Novak said an extradition to another state can be halted only under several clear conditions, including if the extradition papers aren’t in order, if a suspect hasn’t yet been charged or if the identity of the suspect is in doubt. He said none of that applied.

Without witnesses from either side, the part of Friday’s hearing meant for evidence and testimony lasted less than 30 seconds, when Scheller handed the judge Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s signed warrant calling for Rittenhouse’s extradition.

Pierce told Novak that Wisconsin authorities were required by law to present charging documents to a magistrate judge and that their failure to do so rendered their extradition request invalid.

Novak dismissed that argument, saying in his ruling that Rittenhouse’s lawyers had offered no evidence that a magistrate judge did not review the charges.

“Even if this court were to find the complaint (was) not made before a magistrate … Rittenhouse’s argument would still fail,” he wrote. The warrant signed by Pritzker, he said, “satisfies all the requirements.”

The most serious charge Rittenhouse faces in Wisconsin is first-degree intentional homicide, which carries a life prison sentence. He is also charged with attempted intentional homicide in the wounding of a third protester, as well as a misdemeanor charge of underage firearm possession. His lawyers have argued he was acting in self-defense.

Rittenhouse and the man he allegedly injured are white, as were the two men who were killed.

A day after the shooting, Rittenhouse surrendered to police in his Illinois hometown of Antioch, some 10 miles (16 kilometers) southwest of Kenosha.

According to prosecutors and court documents, Rittenhouse killed 36-year-old Joseph Rosenbaum, of Kenosha, after Rosenbaum threw a plastic bag at Rittenhouse, missing him, and tried to wrestle his rifle away.

While trying to get away in the immediate aftermath, Rittenhouse was captured on cellphone video saying, “I just killed somebody.” According to a complaint filed by prosecutors, someone in the crowd said, “Beat him up!” and another yelled, “Get him! Get that dude!”

Video shows that Rittenhouse tripped. As he was on the ground, 26-year-old Anthony Huber, of Silver Lake, hit him with a skateboard and tried to take his rifle. Rittenhouse opened fire, killing Huber and wounding Gaige Grosskreutz, of West Allis, who was holding a handgun.

    It only has to be shown that the person is wanted for a crime, is in fact the person whose extradition is sought. In the rare event (never seen one) the state refused to extradite, the demanding state (WI) could ask for a warrant through Federal Court for Unlawful Flight to Avoid Prosecution. At which time the U.S. Marshall’s Office would effect an arrest and transfer him to WI. As much as I support him, it’s a foregone conclusion concerning extraditions. I’ve done my share.

    1. avatar Eric in Oregon says:

      Yes, this was so obviously doomed that I wonder what the point was. Even if it was intended to buy time for the defense, what did it actually get?

      1. avatar FedUp says:

        Perhaps the idea was that a black eye or two in Lake County Juvie is better than a shank between the ribs in a Kenosha County adult facility?

        I’d still like an explanation as to why a politically sensitive minor showed a big black eye in his video court appearance at the end of September, more than 30 days after the riot he was attacked in.

          “Perhaps the idea was that a black eye or two in Lake County Juvie is better than a shank between the ribs in a Kenosha County adult facility?”

      You are correct. Extradition fights are difficult to fight. And for the guy in jail its dead time not counted toward incarceration time credit.

        Two counts of murder and one attempted murder? Who cares about a weeks credit against a 40-year sentence?

  6. avatar Johnnyreb says:

    The judge is picking nits and ignoring a valid argument that Wisconsin did not properly demand extradition to begin with. This is a 17 year old boy facing blatantly obvious political persecution. And the judge is letting it happen in an open confession of his moral and ethical cowardice for all the world to see.

    1. avatar B-Rad says:

      Umm, the judge was ruling on the Wisconsin extradition request, you know, the request to extradite.

      What did you think was the purpose of the hearing?

  8. avatar Don’t rush to judgement says:

    I had not heard this before:

    According to prosecutors and court documents, Rittenhouse killed 36-year-old Joseph Rosenbaum, of Kenosha, after Rosenbaum threw a plastic bag at Rittenhouse, missing him, and tried to wrestle his rifle away. While trying to get away in the immediate aftermath, Rittenhouse was captured on cellphone video saying, “I just killed somebody.”

    Sounds like Kyle did not intend to fire the first time. Hmm. Could be guilty of one count of negligent homicide.

    1. avatar CanoeIt says:

      That doesn’t sound accurate to me, judging from the released videos. While I’m not going so far as to say thats incorrect, as I wasn’t there. Hopefully, all the facts will come out and he will be found not guilty by way of self defense. Extradition was/is unavoidable, and the longer they fight that the longer this hangs over his head. ACB is now confirmed, so let the ball start rolling. I would personally push for a speedy trial now for a couple of reasons. 1) If his attorney is worth anything, he or she should have compiled the majority of the readily available evidence for exoneration by now. 2) Should Biden win (undoubtly by theft, imo), I would do everything possible to end this before his inauguration and the chance for Dems to really start putting the screws to the system. That said, I would consider a motion for a change of venue, as there is almost no way he will get a fair trial in that area. With it being international news, I’m not sure where he could at this point though. My 2 cents…keep the change.

    2. avatar LarryinTX says:

      You cannot throw a plastic bag, try it and see. It was a bag of rocks or such that was thrown, and then he was attacked. He was not attempting to escape, watch the damn video, he called the police (911) and informed them he thought he’d killed a man, and was directed to go down the street and surrender himself to the cops who were hanging out, en masse, instead of doing their jobs. When he got there, after defending himself against two more wannabe killers, and with his hands up, the police refused to speak to him, so he went home. Makes a different story from that being told by Black Looters Murder, doesn’t it? Stop listening to liars and watch the video.

      1. avatar JD says:

        More like a bag full of some nasty liquid – urine, bleach, acid or gasoline. They were setting a lot of fires that night, and Rittenhouse was knocking down a dumpster fire with an extinguisher shortly before they can after him.

        We need to know what was in that bag – it’s relevant. Even if it can’t be determined, what they were doing with other bags can be easily be inferred as a potentially life-threatening assault. You don’t have to know what’s in a bag being thrown at you to understand it’s likely dangerous. That’s what a reasonable person in that circumstance would do.

    1. avatar Geoff "I'm getting too old for this shit" PR says:

      Yup, no surprise at all.

      We have two news stories of interest to POTG. And if true, is encouraging for us :

      1 – “‘We’ve got to stop the bleeding’: Democrats sound alarm in Miami”

      “MIAMI — Democrats are sounding the alarm about weak voter turnout rates in Florida’s biggest county, Miami-Dade, where a strong Republican showing is endangering Joe Biden’s chances in the nation’s biggest swing state.

      No Democrat can win Florida without a huge turnout and big winning margins here to offset losses elsewhere in the state. But Democrats are turning out at lower rates than Republicans and at lower rates than at this point in 2016, when Hillary Clinton won by 29 percentage points here and still lost the state to Donald Trump.”

      “To date, Republicans have turned out 59 percent of their voters in Miami-Dade and Democrats have turned out 53 percent, a 6-point margin. That’s twice the margin Republicans had at this point in 2016.

      Among Hispanic voters, who make up nearly 70 percent of the county’s population, the deficit is even bigger — 9 points.

      “Democrats have a big turnout issue in the Hispanic community in Miami-Dade,” said Florida-based Democratic data analyst Matt Isbell. “Hispanic Democrat turnout is only 48% while the Republican Hispanics are at 57%. This large of a gap doesn’t exist in Broward or Orange. It is a Miami problem.””

      https://www.politico.com/news/2020/10/29/miami-voter-turnout-democrats-433643#431

      2 – “Biden Advisers Sound Red Alert Over Black, Latino Turnout”

      “Despite record early-vote turnout around the country, there are warning signs for Biden. In Arizona, two-thirds of Latino registered voters have not yet cast a ballot. In Florida, half of Latino and Black registered voters have not yet voted but more than half of White voters have cast ballots, according to data from Catalist, a Democratic data firm. In Pennsylvania, nearly 75% of registered Black voters have not yet voted, the data shows.”

      1. avatar Geoff "I'm getting too old for this shit" PR says:

        That potentially dooms Biden’s chances.

        There is no love for Biden like there was for personally popular Obama.

        What’s bad news for us is, Leftists could wake up to the fact that personal popularity is needed to win national elections, and they decide to run candidates like Tom Hanks or Oprah Winfrey…

        1. avatar strych9 says:

          I find it mildly amusing that everyone assumes that vote-by-mail heavily favors the Democrats.

          Logically speaking, under the current conditions what cohort is mostly likely to vote by mail to avoid in person voting? Old people who are actually at risk from CoV-2.

          Old people tend to vote more conservatively than younger people.

          Then there’s the fact that older people tend to be in the investor class and if they have half of a working brain they know Biden will destroy their investments and tax the shit out of their returns.

          Then there’s young people having their lives destroyed. Anecdotally I can tell you that they are not in favor of Biden. In fact, most of the ones that I deal with hate the Democrats in general right now. Out of several hundred that I regularly deal with none has expressed support for Biden and a number have expressed support for Trump which elicited a supportive response from most of the rest.

          I would also point out that for the last number of years a jump in Democrating Party affiliation or lean Democrat is associated specifically with college graduation and college graduation is looking more and more out of reach without extra years of schooling for today’s freshmen and sophomores.

          Now, my personal observation is just an anecdote. However, logically it makes sense since Gen Z is more conservative than Millennials were and they start this CoV-2 thing having grown up watching what Obamanomics did to their slightly older family and friends in the prior generation. They don’t appear to like what they see. The number of them angry about their current college experience (that is, old enough to vote because no one gives a fuck politically speaking what a 16 or 17 year told thinks).

          In short, other than a very, very vocal but also very, very small minority today’s 18-25 year olds don’t seem to like Biden from the jump and also seem to understand that a vote for him is a vote against their own self-interest in the medium and longer terms.

          Unfortunately any significant study of how Gen Z sees the election effectively stopped in May and mostly uses, at best, 2019 numbers which given the nature of 2020 I suspect is essentially useless, stale, data at this point in time. Regardless of the outcome next week this one will be post-mortemed to a second, third and maybe forth death.

          Interesting year.

        2. avatar Ron says:

          My own personal observation is that at least the a lot men of Gen Z, (outside of the cities/campuses) are actually quite conservative or even right wing for their age, and a lot appear to like Trump. Gen Z seems to me to have a bit of a backlash effect against the hyper liberalism of the late mellenials, and the obvious slant of the MSM. Because of this they often get their news of alternative news sources and do not trust the MSM at all. Many of them assume people older then them are liberal and won’t open up about their true beliefs until you talk to them for awhile.

          I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the lefts antics have enraged a great deal of people. The left thinks they are the future and the next generations all belong to them. Our own resident trolls here tout this all the time. But I disagree. As an example, If you look at the *Real* political field in Europe right now, not the sanitized MSM version, Europe is starting to swing heavily back to the right with a great deal of nationalist zeal. Germany and is a great example of this. Decades of ultra liberal policies, ultra pro immigration, and a heavy handed legal system against anything deemed too right wing have created a backlash resulting in the “Shocking” rise of the AfD party. It’s not shocking. When you kick someone down long enough eventually they bite back…

          I believe that globally, the left over played their hand. What happens next is their fault, whatever it may bring.

          Preach it, my brother.

          if things go the way it currently appears it might, their reaction will make the last 4 years of ‘Resistance’ and general ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome’ look like amateur hour.

          Them snapping like a rubber band on live video may so frighten the general public that it leads to the destruction of the current ‘Progressive’ power model.

          Then again, doubling-down on stupid is in their (defective) DNA. I just might find myself doubled over with laughter and for-real shitting my pants at the same time.

          I think I just might be up for that experience. An interesting year indeed… 🙂

          “if things go the way it currently appears it might, their reaction will make the last 4 years of ‘Resistance’ and general ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome’ look like amateur hour.”

          I rather hope not.

          Example: Philly. At the same time that the governor deploys the National Guard the City Council sends exactly the wrong message by removing rubber bullets and tear gas.

          Now maybe that works out but I rather doubt it. More likely it emboldens the tiny minority that is this mob that it’s the cops who get in trouble and therefore the mob can go further. But with the NG and local PD reduced to nothing but hand to hand and lethal force if a mob outnumbers them you’re going to get live ammo going at least one direction here.

          That’s not something we need and it’s a real possibility of tensions don’t get taken down a notch or two. Turn things up five notches with a Trump win? I’m not sure I want to see what happens there.

          While some might think there’s some delicious schadenfreude to be had in that situation I don’t. I especially don’t think so when I consider that it’s likely that, at least in the immediate, that would amp things up even more. The ACLU is already suing cops all over the country for “brutalizing protestors” (arresting rioters IOW). This kind of thing threatens to get markedly worse in a manner that, honestly, can’t be controlled.

          Seriously, it’s almost like nearly all the adults in this country decided sometime around mid-March to just up and fuck off somewhere and then never came back.

          For Strych9 as there no reply button your post. I think that while your observation is correct, the premise is flawed. I believe the reason many believe vote by mail favors Dems has far more to do with the fact that it makes Dem cheating easier, more effective, and more difficult to prove. I’m 99% sure people would take notice if a dead person or pet strolled into the polling station. 1% takes into account the major metro areas like SFBA, Chitcago, NY, ect..

      My reply to your response below since it seems when you get to the third reply column the reply buttom seems to disappear, undoubtedly an attempt to limit thread jacking. Just wanting to reiterate that I agree with your observations, and was merely attempting to point out why many people perceive vote by mail favors Dems. and not that it actually does. I also agree that Dem cheating would have to be so agregious it would indeed be impossible to hide. There have been multiple news regarding obvious Dem scams in recent years due to the rise of alternative news sites that will actually report on it, so they can’t hide it like they used to. My opinion on the generational shift to conservatism is simple: You can only lie to so many generations before the next figures out through life experience it is a lie and they turn away from you. My experience is that I was raised as a Dem, by Dems, under Dem thumb (IL). Until roughly 1992 they had me convinced there was something wrong with me. By 1994 (my senior yr of high school) the truth of that had become obvious to me. Once out on my own, working and raising my children, it didn’t take long and I was a full blown Rep. That is how I raised my kids, converted my wife, and am assisting in the rearing of the now 3 grandchildren. The oldest G’child has been training with air soft rifles & pistols for a year now, and on her 5th birthday coming will be getting a pink Red Rider that will also be locked in “Papa’s Closet” (my gun safe) and hopfully the air soft’s will be passed down to the middle G’child and so on. Just a small snippet of how my opinions have been formed. Stay safe out there, and best wishes. It’s Sat so I’m off to the range.

As far as making it easier to dismiss us, I disagree with that on the premise that liberals (no such thing as a moderate liberal anymore) have already dismissed facts, logic, and reason so they need to have thier emotions provoked to even engage in the conversation. In that aspect I would say JWM was successful.

There’s something DEEPLY wrong with a “justice” system where the police will steadfastly REFUSE to protect you and then throw you into a concrete box for having the audacity to protect yourself. Between the early Covid “shutdowns” and the summer of riots, it has been made clear beyond the tiniest shred of doubt that when the rubber meets the road, the police will happily side with the state against the citizenry. They are not our friends and they cannot be trusted

      He turned himself in in Illinois. The cops didn’t go out and arrest him.

      1. avatar LarryinTX says:

        Watch the video, he turned himself in in Kenosha, to the cops who were hiding down the street from where their job was, and they refused to even talk to him.

    By all accounts it was either kill or be killed. There appears to be no gray area. Case Closed.

    TRUMP/PENCE 2020.

      “Trump/Pence 2020” is going to lose by 15 million votes, and rightfully so.

      Good riddance to the trailer park Trumpbilly brigade.🐷💩

    1, his age will have a lot to do with the verdict, 2, self defense is his strong point, 3, he’s a patriot, just depends on if the prosecution has a activist judge on the case…

    Wow talk about a freudian slip, the AP finally tells an unintentional truth!
    “a case brought by Wisconsin protestors”
    Yep, this is all about mob justice!

    1. avatar Ing says:

      Yes, indeed. I was going to bring this up, too.

      I checked the news elsewhere, and every single iteration of this AP story has it as “a case brought by Wisconsin protestors and approved by a Wisconsin judge.”

      Kinsley gaffe, anyone?

      Maybe the truth just finds a way to slip out, just like Biden saying “we’ve built the best voter fraud organization” ever. Or maybe the AP just doesn’t have the $ to hire copy editors anymore.

  18. avatar Huntmaster says:

    When this is over and Kyle is found “Not Guilty’ the people responsible for running him through the mill need to be held responsible. Punishment historically imposed on murderous tyrants would be appropriate.

  19. avatar Elmer Fudd says:

    The prosecution will make a major issue of the fact that Kyle used as an AR-15 “assault rifle.”. As the FBI crime data documents:

    https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s/2019/crime-in-the-u.s.-2019/tables/expanded-homicide-data-table-8.xls

    more people are murdered by being bludgeoned to death with blunt instruments such as skateboards boards than are short to death with rifles of any type, much less AR-15s. Extrapolating from the FBI’s extremely detailed data on weapons used to kill police officers, it can be estimated that people are ten times as likely to be bludgeoned to death than shoot with an AR-15. (Yes Virginia, I counted AR-15s chambered in alternative calibers including .300 Blackout).

    Hopefully a Militia group can break him out of jail.

    Hopefully this boot licking, white supremacist Trumpbilly will be beaten to death in jail within a month to save the taxpayers a ton of money housing and feeding him for the next 60 years.😃

      See, two can play your game. I bet I can make you piss your pants before you get a chance to spread misinformation again.

      Not that hard to find your location btw… and by location, I mean a whole lot more than your ISP’s IP… wanna try me?

  23. avatar Mike Carbine says:

    The left is out for blood. I have the impression Kyle is going to be in his mid 20’s before this is all over. Pick your battles people. Maybe not worth it to save the dems from themselves…

  24. I am making a good salary from home 1200-2500/ DOLLARS a week , which is amazing, under a year back I was jobless in a horrible economy. I thank God every day I was blessed with these instructions and now it’s my duty to pay it forward and share it with Everyone……… http://www.v88.ca/3fyq

  25. avatar Don says:

    May Wisconsin rot in the filth they’ve made. Kyle shot in self defense which is legal in this country. The D.A. who brought the charges is the one who belongs behind bars.

  26. avatar Robert says:

    ..With the facts on video in evidence ther is no justification for what Rittenhouse did, many are in prison for life for less than Rittenhouse did, even being attacked gives no one a right to murder anyone. This has been made political by the people who are against BLM including the very President of this USA who was not in any position to make a claim about the matter but did so to try in my mind to make BLM look bad and has on lots of occasions done it to fire up his Racist supporters, who go out of their way to make the BLM protests look like they are anti American when in fact the Constitution says they have that right to protest and even the DOJ AG has said the BLM protests have been hijacked by outside protesters who are the one’s doing the damage. Now along with that the law enforcement in those protests have pointed to a White Supremist Group called the BOOGALOO BOYS who have been arrested and charged with murder of a Federal police agent and the wounding of another and transporting arms, ammunition and explosives acrosss state line to start riots which they hoped would turn into a Civil Race War.

    1. avatar jwm says:

      Complete bullshit.

    2. avatar BobK says:

      BLM is a domestic terrorist organization, not a racial justice protest organization. They have committed crimes against law abiding citizens. Just because they chose a name black lives matter, it doesn’t prove what the name implies. In fact,conservative blacks are not welcome and they commit crimes against other blacks. They are no different than antifa. Just a bunch of unlawful thugs.

    A person has the right to protect himself from criminal acts being acted upon him! In every incident, I will protect myself as every individual has that right! Sorry if your a thug trying to act out your crime on the innocent, you may die and should, if you have enough balls to commit a crime on others!

    1. avatar BobK says:

      Amen – this is supposed to be America, not a third world hellhole. It’s clear from the video he was defending himself from a bunch of thugs. He has the right to defend himself. Period. I guess the judges in Wisconsin would have been satisfied if the thugs murdered him.

    President Trump Will pardon him no matter what any judge says… he’s innocent of any charge.. guess the judge never heard of self defense… case closed..

    1. avatar Mike Carbine says:

      Trump might not even be President by the time this is all over, and I am pretty sure presidential pardons are only applicable to federal crimes. So unless Kyle gets charged and convicted by the Feds too…

      “In the United States, a federal crime or federal offense is an act that is made illegal by U.S. federal legislation. Prosecution happens at both the federal and the state levels (based on the Dual sovereignty doctrine) and so a “federal crime” is one that is prosecuted under federal criminal law and not under state criminal law under which most of the crimes committed in the United States are prosecuted.” wiki

  31. avatar Randy says:

    I must have missed something, because I heard that Kyle Rittenhouse was exonerated in Wisconsin and sent to live in Illinois with his Mom so he would be safe from people who would obviously want to kill him. So it sounds to me like this Judge is setting him up to be killed. Sounds pretty evil to me.
