Defense attorney fails to get Rev. Jesse Jackson removed from courtroom in Ahmaud Arbery death trial
The Ahmaud Arberry is ongoing and the defense attorney in the case is trying all kinds of tactics to get a mistrial. First they complained about Al Sharpton being in the courtroom saying that “high-profile members of the African American community” were “intimidating” the jury and that he did not want more Black pastors appearing in the courtroom. A comment he later had to apologize for. But now he’s at it again after Rev Jesse Jackson came to support the family. The defense attorney tried to get a mistrial and tried to have Rev removed from the courtroom. He argued Jackson’s presence may impact his client’s right to a fair trial and asked the court to have Jackson sit in the overflow room next door. He said “There is no reason for these prominent icons in the civil rights movement to be here.” Not only that they had issue with Ahmaud Arberry’s Mom crying in the courtroom too. Well the judge in the trial disagreed and rejected both motions for mistrial.

Jurors in Kyle Rittenhouse’s homicide trial will begin deliberations today
Well in the other high profile court case happening right now the kyle Rittenhouse trial is in the jury deliberation stage after closing arguments yesterday.
The prosecution argued Rittenhouse, 17 at the time, provoked the fatal shootings by pointing his AR-15-style weapon at Joseph Rosenbaum, prosecutors said “That is what provokes this entire incident,” prosecutor Thomas Binger said. “When the defendant provokes this incident, he loses the right to self-defense. You cannot claim self-defense against a danger you create.”
The Defense on the other hand said said Rittenhouse did not act recklessly when he fatally shot Rosenbaum, who had threatened him, chased him, thrown a plastic bag at him and lunged for his gun.
We’ll see what the jury thinks.
