Joyce Vance Compares Kyle Rittenhouse to a Bank Robber Shooting at People Trying to Stop the Robbery

‘It’s something akin to saying that if you go in a bank and rob it and people are trying to apprehend you, you can then shoot your way out and claim self-defense’

RUSH EXCERPT:

VANCE: “You know, there was some of everything not to like in this case. From the way the judge conducted it to some of the strategic decisions the prosecution made. The defense, you know, as we say, was good enough. And the key point of the defense was arguing self-defense. As a former prosecutor, this strikes me as an odd situation for self-defense. It’s something akin to saying that if you go in a bank and rob it and people are trying to apprehend you, you can then shoot your way out and claim self-defense. That’s a little bit what Kyle Rittenhouse did. He created this problem, and then proceeded to threaten people to get out. Typically you can’t claim self-defense in a situation where you’ve provoked the incident. But the defense did a good enough job of convincing jurors this was a unanimous verdict on all counts. This jury was thoroughly convinced.”
