A guilty verdict won't mean anything when the judge declares a mistrial. An acquittal means he's free for ever. Heads I win, tails I don't lose.

Mistrial without prejudice is still a 50/50 for Kyle. The prosecution gets another shot to clean up all their mistakes, but Kyle gets the chance to hire competent counsel that will hopefully have a pair of nuts.

Acquittal means Kenosha burns. Mistrial with prejudice means Kenosha burns. Mistrial without prejudice means Kenosha burns. Guilty verdict means that Kenosha burns, but only because it’s during the “Winter Of Love.”

A mistrial without prejudice likely results in someone like Robert Barnes representing him which would be goddamned amazing.

Still a scary thing though. It’s a lot of chance to take with someone’s literal life on the line. No matter how it’s cut, I pray Kyle walks a free man and then sues the fucking shit out of everyone.

The problem is that the media will be given a reason to REALLY push the narrative against self-defense and 2A. In addition, Kyle will not be able to sue for defamation, though Rekieta live stream panel members indicated that he has some recourse, as long as the jury hung. But full acquittal would be worth a cool billion for the Rittenhouses.
