Why Kyle Rittenhouse’s murder trial got fiery after he took the stand

Why Kyle Rittenhouse’s murder trial got fiery after he took the stand

Corri Hess, Wisconsin Public Radio:

I think it was a surprise that Kyle Rittenhouse took the stand, but I believe that they put him up there because just having the jury see him and hear him talk, they got to see how young he is.

I mean, just his voice, he sounds like a teenager. He looks like a teenager. Of course, he’s 18 now. But they also got to really let him tell his side of the story, which he has not spoken about this before.

And they got to paint him as this good samaritan. They spent much of the beginning of his testimony talking about all the volunteer work he did. He’s a lifeguard. He was in this police prep program. He volunteered with the EMT. So they really went a long way to sort of paint him as this young guy who was just out to help people, even talking about the early part of August 25, 2020, where he went to Kenosha and was cleaning graffiti.

So I think that’s why the put him on the stand.
