Blame David Hancock, Kyle's "advisor", who basically controls every part of Kyle's life.

He definitely has a different persona he puts on in front of the media. If anything, from what various people have said, he's almost too nice sometimes.

This is Wisconsin bail too; so to pay it he'd need to front the whole 5 million.

Several of them challenged in lower courts. That's what caused the mandate to be stayed indefinitely.

There's no need to go to SCOTUS as of yet.

Oh yeah, all that new efficient green energy we totally have.

We only have electric cars because they are somewhat viable on a small scale, and companies have been experimenting with those for half a century. I've never understood how we're meant to transition to something that doesn't even exist.

If only the jury could have viewed the HD drone footage a few more times, they would have seen that every person shot was wearing a yarmulke. That's how Kyle determined who to shoot.

These were just poor Jewish boys on the way home. And that's when Kyle attacked.

The best they would be able to do is try a civil rights claim. The only problem is that all of the people killed were white and Kyle is mixed race. That would be a strange argument to hear in court.

Unfortunately he can't for a lot of it. Because the prosecution and any court documents have immunity from libel and the media can just say they were basing their reports off those.

There are some things Kyle could and should try to get the media on though. Like any claim that never came from the prosecutors office.

Nate and the blonde girl both said the rioters couldn’t have let Kyle run to the police because they couldn’t possibly know he wasn’t an active shooter.

I think Nate was speaking "legally" there because he's talked several times abut how Kyle is clearly innocent and clearly defending himself. It was in response to Good Lawgic sharing a video about the crowd following him.

Yes they are. Nick and the panel have gone through parts of them a few times.

The judge also read them out to the jury Monday

"Can I take the jury instructions home?"

...why?

And the judge allowed it.

In-between cases, trials taking place on Zoom; so they don't have to be anywhere, and some of them specialize in areas that don't require going to trial often (contract law, copywrites, ect) or very specific stuff like only first amendment or self defense claims.

It's because of the bias people have in Kyle's favor. It happened with Trump too, to a much greater extent.

They want Kyle to win; so they can't accept any possibility of a weakness on his side. So when one is brought up, they don't want to even consider it, and the messenger is blamed.

of course he has an axe to grind against Kyle

Dude. Just stop it. He's never said anything at all bad about Kyle. He's always said he was innocent, and constantly talked about what a great person he is and what a great family he has. He's done this before, while, and then even after no longer being a part of the defense team.

Kyle's defense team is underwhelming. That has nothing to do with Barnes.

He was fired by Kyle on the eve of the trial bc Kyle learned that Barnes was fired by Alex Jones

Show me the source for that? I don't know how many times I've seen you make claims and then never back them up.

Barnes' bias means any of his opinions are worthless

What about your clear bias here?

I find Judge story time to be kind of endearing. Now if only he would just rule a mistrial.

2 million dollars worth of it. He still has 600K to work with though and that should have been enough to do better than this.

it's because it works. It makes it look like he has several arguments instead of just one bad one. He's basically beating the judge into submission.

Barnes was right.

He was right about the jury.

He's right about the defense.

He's a former prosecutor and law enforcement. He understands things from a bit of a wider perspective than a lot of the panel who are mostly just defense or non-criminal lawyers.

I disagree with his politics sometimes; but he's pretty cool.

If the defense would just give him a solid reason to push off of he'd go for it. But they really aren't and all he's got is a feeling that this isn't right. He can probably tell there's lying going on; but he's not sure about what exactly.

This case will not set any precedent either way no matter how the verdict comes out.

There are no arguments about the laws themselves. The arguments are weather Kyle's actions fall within them or not.
