Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Wisconsin Judge Bruce Schroeder took some criticism Thursday after requesting during the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial in Kenosha that attendees applaud for the nation's service members on Veterans Day.

During a moment in the day's proceedings, Schroeder asked if any veterans were present in the courtroom. Only John Black, a use-of-force expert who was later called to the witness stand by the defense, claimed to have served in the military, identifying himself as an Army veteran, The Associated Press reported. "I think we give a round of applause to the people who've served our country," Schroeder then said, drawing a few moments of clapping from those in attendance, including the jurors.

I have not been following this court case too closely, but this just strikes as WOW. The judge had the court (including the jurors) APPLAUD a defense witness. Incredible!

Killer Kyle obviously studied footage of the drunken gang rapist on the Supreme Court before performing his pathetic blubbering act on the stand.

"Bob Ewell's name is based off of Robert E. Lee, who was best known for being a confederate general during the American Civil War."

Judge Schroeder: "How about a round of applause for Robert E. Lee!"

Maybe a mistrial without prejudice would make some sense, and maybe that was what the prosecution was going for. Get another judge one would expect.
But no judge would put his or her thumb on the scales for the defense as this one has so I kind of doubt the mistrial will be declared.

Nice to see all the Karen's are watching this and getting their panties in a knot over the judge acknowledging veterans ON VETERANS DAY and saying he hoped lunch wouldn't be late because EVERYTHING IS RUNNING LATE because of the supply chain ------.

Why would he do that? Only someone who is biased like you would do that.

Joke about Asian food....

I'll admit, that may have been in bad taste. But it still doesnt mean he's racist, like liberals want to make him.

Trumps rally theme song on phone ringtone.....

That's his business, not yours, and nothing to do with the trial.

Can't call the victims victims , but can call them rioters....

Because that's what they were doing at the time they got shot. Makes sense.

Round of applause for one veteran, a defense expert.

Of all the people in that room, only ONE person was a vet, alot like society, where only 1% actually served the nation. He deserves it. Vets deserve it.

Personally, I'm just impressed that Boaz is flexible enough to do that to himself.

Nobody is disputing that. The issue is the judge bolstering a witness' credibility as they are taking the stand, and it's beyond obnoxious for a trial judge to do that.

"Of all the people in that room, only ONE person was a vet"

Maybe only one felt the need to point out that they're a veteran.
Maybe only one needs to be told they're special for having that job.

Most veterans I know don't go around telling people they're veterans, and one of the big reasons is the last thing they want to hear is "thank you for your service."

Your mommy and daddy didn't love you enough, Boaz.

I said questionable decisions and shady... Boaz runs right to the race card.
And the fact that Boaz fully supports this judge should show you just how biased he really is.

Vets do deserve honor and respect ,but go buy them a beer....
Don't inflate the value of their testimony during a trial.

On Veterans Day they get their due respect. We know you hate vets and cops, that's your deal but keep it low key on vets day.

They do get their due respect.

Problem is the fetishizing level of nonsense we see towards both groups by the supposed "small gov conservatives."

Like you have any room to talk.

We know that YOU insurrectionists hate cops. WHO WAS IT WHO attacked and killed 2 and injured some 140 capitol police on Jan 6th?

Insurrectionists and Trump supporters that's who.

I can see how that could affect the trial slightly. It's just funny how yall liberals are pissed about this one example because the individual probably will be friendly to Rittenhouse. If the judge wanted to acknowledge a social justice warrior, I doubt we would be having this conversation.

Then you can see why it was wrong.

The judge had no way of knowing there were NO other vets in the audience of a packed courtroom.

It's no different than if the judge acknowledged if it was Christmas.

"The judge had no way of knowing there were NO other vets in the audience of a packed courtroom."

So what?

He still demonstrated bias towards a defense witness.

Even if he did it inadvertently, which seems unlikely, it's still bias.

Also, your assumption is flawed. The may well have been other veterans in the courtroom. Ones who didn't want a handy from the judge.

Its very different.

First, the judge acknowledged that its Christmas.

Then, the judge asked for a round of applause for all Christians.

I realize you have zero principles and therefore probably believe this, but we aren't all as pathetic as you.

Since so many in the left, including most Democrats, hate this country and the military, the judge's actions could have soured the jury.

Shortages of practically everything else and what you can get is at inflated prices. So we got that going for us.

"Since so many in the left, including most Democrats, hate this country and the military"

On Friday, we had right-wingers From Trump's inner circle call for a state religion in America.
On Friday, Republicans and Democrats alike were warned against holding Town Hall meetings due to violent threats.

It's pretty clear which side hates the values this country was founded on.

Oh I see. Your accusation is that Democrats hate state's rights and slavery.

Thank you for clarifying.
