Rittenhouse: What If Grosskreutz Was Making A Citizens Arrest?

Welcome, Law of Self Defense Members to today’s members-only content, and, yes, it’s once again on the Rittenhouse case. An interesting thought-experiment question was posed by one of our Platinum members. That is, what if the intent of Gaige Grosskreutz, the man who approached Kyle Rittenhouse in the street with a gun in hand and was shot in the arm for his trouble, was not the unlawful killing of Rittenhouse, but rather the intent was …

Rittenhouse: Gun Possession, Even if Unlawful, Irrelevant to Self-Defense Claim

Welcome Law of Self Defense Members to today’s members-only content—once again, focusing on the case of Kyle Rittenhouse. So, I received an inquiry from my good friend Dan recently, asking my thoughts on the oft-repeated claim on social media that Kyle Rittenhouse lacks any self-defense justification for his use of force the night of August 25-26 I Kenosha WI, because his possession of the AR rifle used that night was itself unlawful. Andrew, There’s a …

Rittenhouse: Admissibility of Attackers’ Violent Criminal Backgrounds

Welcome, Law of Self Defense Members, to today’s members-only content, which focuses on an issue of law particularly relevant to the Kyle Rittenhouse case.

Rittenhouse: Gaming the Law: Why Prosecutor Charged Recklessness

Welcome, Law of Self Defense Members, to today’s members-only content! Today I’d like to explore with you the possible motivations for why prosecutors in the Kyle Rittenhouse case might have chosen to base so many of the charges against Kyle on recklessness, rather than on intent. This will be a little bit nuts-and-bolts and more technical than I usually try to make our content, but I think could provide some useful insight into the prosecution’s …

Mob Attack: Legal & Tactical Options

Welcome Law of Self-Defense Members to today’s members-only content, which is a legal and tactical look at the mob attack by BLM/Antifa rioters against an isolated woman attempting to dine outside a restaurant this past Monday. If you’re wondering why I use the term “rioters” to describe these aggressors rather than “protestors,” it’s because protestors transition into rioters precisely when they become physical aggressors. I will include a pair of videos of this riotous attack …
