Kyle Rittenhouse cleans graffiti from a high school near the Kenosha County Courthouse following another night of unrest on August 25, 2020 in Kenosha, Wisconsin. An attorney for the 17-year-old said he is stepping back from his criminal defense.

Los Angeles based lawyer John M. Pierce confirmed will be pulling back from the teenager’s defense and attorney Mark Richards will now be representing Rittenhouse in the criminal trial.

Pierce said he will instead be focusing on raising money for the defense team.

Pierce, along with Rittenhouse‘s fellow attorney Lin Wood, were able to raise the $2m needed to post the teenager’s bail following a successful fundraising campaign.

The detective testified that Rosenbaum was chasing Rittenhouse before he was shot. After that shooting, he said, Rittenhouse was running away and fell to the ground, shooting Huber after Huber hit Rittenhouse with a skateboard. Another man, who was seen on video trying to kick Rittenhouse, was never identified, Antaramian testified.

“The state is trying to put forward a one-sided view of what happened, protecting someone who does not deserve protection, he’s a masked robber,” Richards said of Rosenbaum.

AOC slams Kyle Rittenhouse’s release as ‘law and disorder’

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Saturday slammed what she called a “double standard” within the criminal justice system after accused Kenosha killer Kyle Rittenhouse being sprung from jail on a $2 million bond.

The 17-year-old’s release on Friday had sparked outrage on social media from some Democrats who argued it was an example of racial privilege within the system.

“Does anyone believe Rittenhouse would be released if he were Muslim & did the same thing in a diff context?” Ocasio-Cortez asked on Twitter.

“For people who say ‘systemic racism doesn’t exist,’ this is what it looks like: protection of white supremacy baked deep into our carceral systems,” she continued, adding “Law and disorder.”

The lefty lawmaker also used Rittenhouse’s release to blast those who argue against bail reform by complaining that “violent people will be let out of jail to roam free.”

They “rarely ever acknowledge that’s actually

Kenosha Shooter Kyle Rittenhouse’s Lawyer Urges Trump Fans to ‘Dust Off’ Gun Rights

The lawyer for Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse is on a Twitter tear again—this time, urging supporters to “dust off those Second Amendment rights” and not let China “steal” the election from lame-duck President Trump.

“Time to dust off those Second Amendment rights. Founders put it there for a very specific reason,” attorney John Pierce tweeted Wednesday night.

In another tweet, Pierce wrote, “Trump won in a landslide. The triad of Big Tech, mainstream media and the CCP is trying to steal it. Obvious. Do not let them. Do not give an inch. Fight over every single hedgerow. Nothing less than our freedom hangs in the balance.” The post included hashtags: #FightBack, #TrumpWon and #1775.

Pierce then shared an image of Washington Crossing the Delaware—an oil painting commemorating General George Washington and the Continental Army in the American Revolutionary War—with the words: “All combat takes place at night.”
