Alan Dershowitz: Kyle Rittenhouse 'Should Be Acquitted'

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

If Kyle rittenhouse is convicted, it'll be one of the biggest disgraces in a courtroom that we'll have seen since O. J. Simpson was acquitted. Right now, 12 jurors and 6 alternates being chosen by lottery. There's a jury pool of 18. They're going to have 12 juries who get to hear the case. I mean, what a doozy it was. To watch this, Katie pavlich had great analysis Katie from town hall dot com. She was on the 5 yesterday. Here's how she said that the prosecutors blew up their own case. So the defense has been able to go back to the evidence with the jury to show them to let them see what happened.

As to the two who were killed, I don't think you can make a prediction. I do think that the evidence does not show beyond a reasonable doubt that he committed a crime and that even if he were to be convicted, there would be very, very, very serious issues on appeal. So I'm not going to predict, but I'm going to tell you that the right verdict in this case would be an acquit. That doesn't mean that this young man should be praised for coming with an AR-15. That doesn't mean he's a hero. It just means the government failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he did not act in self defense. That's a high burden. I don't believe the government met
