From an article: He went on to explain his rule forbidding the use of the term "victims" to describe the men shot by Mr Rittenhouse, saying it unfairly implies that a crime has been committed.

Yes, but calling them looters and rioters also implies a crime has been committed, and for some reason those people don't get a trial.

Racist piece of shiat...

Did you hear his rant the other day about how he saves text messages?

He screen grabs them and emails them to himself.

Because he's too stupid to edit his phone settings to keep texts for X amount of time, which on an iPhone, is "forever" unless you implicitly change it.

This asshole has committed at least a dozen instances of judicial misconduct and is just writing his own mistrial at this point, which is maybe the best possible outcome here.

He should also be censured and remanded to traffic cases only, although even then he could potentially be dumb enough to try and sentence speeders to death.

Can be be removed from office otherwise?

If Rittenhouse is acquitted, there's not much you can do.  You can't have a mistrial.  He walks, unless the federal government pursues some sort of civil rights case here.  I suppose he could be reprimanded and sanctioned for judicial misconduct, which could lead to him being removed from the bench.

Hung jury results in a mistrial so the process starts all over.  Hopefully prosecutors push for a change of venue and new judge, based on that asshole's conduct.

To clarify my point: if Rittenhouse is acquitted, you can't declare a mistrial after that.  But a hung jury is a mistrial that results in a new trial.

I don't know what the law is in Wisconsin, but in most states it would be far too late to move for a change of venue, and moving to disqualify a judge for bias is a very tall order (or impossible) after they've already ruled on the merits of a case.  So in all likelihood Judge MAGAt would likely preside over the retrial as well.

Randomly drawing a Black person's name when choosing jurors for deliberation in a case where a white person shot other white people is bad optics.

Circusdog320: Talk about optics...A white judge in 2021 dismissing a black person from a jury because the juror is black. I guess justice isn't blind its a racist farkwit


That's not what happened. A clerk pulled a name from the hopper in order to see who would NOT serve on a previous jury, and it happened to be the only Black person. That's his reasoning for allowing the defendant to pull the names (or so he says): because he thought it looked bad for a government employee to be the one to cause such a thing to randomly happen.

Now, he's absolutely still a racist piece of shiat ("a black, the black, the only black?" wtaf), as well as blatantly unfit for his position. But just fyi.

Even if the jury does the right thing and finds Rittenhouse guilty, the fires of justice must still burn in Kenosha, because there has been so much injustice in the trial.  Evacuate Kenosha and let the fires of justice burn.  Only a great sacrificial fire of justice can purge the city of the taint of white supremacy.

This was choosing the jurors to be dismissed. And it kind of makes sense, to limit any accusations of unfairness by letting the defendant himself pull the tiles. But in this case, after everything, the optics are bad. It has big "Daddy let me hold the wheel" energy.
