I have been following the trial of Wisconsin v. Kyle Rittenhouse pretty close over the last week. As someone who is prepared to defend themself, I have found it important to watch this trial and learn more about the justice system and the reality of a situation that any one of us could find ourselves in.
Being that I am on social media a lot (personally and as a Moderator of USCCA Pages) I have kept a close eye on the use of social media posts in relation to the questioning of witnesses such as Gaige Grosskreutz and Kyle Rittenhouse. Both the prosecution and the defense have used things from social media against them and I think it’s important to remember how that could affect MY trial if, God forbid, I was ever in a situation that either of these two were in.
Regardless of where you stand in the case or what outcome you may want to see, I’m curious as to what everyone else thinks about this, and when you post to social media of any kind, do you think about how it may look if you were ever questioned in your own self-defense trial?
