Prosecutor's Restrictions for Kyle Rittenhouse

Abstract

Since Kyle Rittenhouse was seen in a Wisconsin bar with members of Proud Boys posing White Power hand sign, the prosecutor asked a judge to tighten bail for him. 

MILWAUKEE – Prosecutors in Wisconsin have asked a judge to order Kyle Rittenhouse to stay out of bars, and away from violent white power groups like the Proud Boys.

Prosecutors in Wisconsin filed a motion Wednesday asking a judge to forbid Kyle Rittenhouse from drinking alcohol or entering bars, flashing "White supremacist signs" and spending time with Proud Boys members while on release on a $2 million bond for allegedly killing two people and wounding a third in Kenosha during violent anti-police protests last summer.

Shortly after pleading not guilty to murder and weapons charges earlier this month, Kyle Rittenhouse showed up at a bar in Mount Pleasant, Wis., clad in a T-shirt that said “Free as F---,” prosecutors said. Then the 18-year-old allegedly drank three beers, posed for photos with members of Proud Boys and flashed a “white power” hand sign.

The excursion raised red flags for prosecutors handling the state’s case against Rittenhouse, who is charged with fatally shooting two men and wounding a third during an August protest following the police shooting of a Black man in Kenosha, Wis.

Kenosha gunman Kyle Rittenhouse has been spotted allegedly flashing white power signs and wearing a 'free as f**k' t-shirt at a Wisconsin bar while out on bail.

The 18-year-old, who is awaiting trial for killing two Black Lives Matter protesters and wounding a third, was snapped at Pudgy's Pub in Mount Pleasant last week with his mother, making the 'OK' sign often used by white supremacist groups.
