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.

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.”

Serial shooter suspect was likely near 2 freeway shootings

A landscaper once charged in freeway shootings in metro Phoenix during 2015 alleged in his false-arrest lawsuit that there’s a high likelihood that a car belonging to a man later charged in nine killings had been near the scene of two of the highway shootings, according to court documents filed Monday.

An attorney representing Leslie Merritt Jr. said in the documents that license plate readers picked up a plate matching six of the seven characters from killing suspect Aaron Juan Saucedo’s BMW near two of the shootings on Interstate 10 on Aug. 29, 2015.

The lawyer, Jason Lamm, theorized in the documents that Saucedo could have carried out both freeway shootings during the 16 minutes between when he bought 50 rounds of ammunition at a pawn shop and the back-to-back interstate shootings. Lamm contends authorities should have examined Saucedo further.
