Not only did Rittenhouse appear with an illegal firearm in another state, he fled the state, all while being underage, breaking section 948.60(2)(a) which states that "any person under 18 years of age who possesses or goes armed with a dangerous weapon is guilty of a Class A misdemeanour" . However it is the conduct of the trial against Rittenhouse and especially the role of judge Schroeder that has gained widespread condemnation, Schroeder made a number of pretrial rulings, controversially ordering that the men Rittenhouse shot could not be referred to as "victims" but could be called "arsonists" or "looters". Furthermore the judge forbade discussion of Rittenhouse's previous fights or meetings at a bar with members of the far-right militia, the Proud Boys, while awaiting trial. Schroeder also caused further controversy during the trial, first by his ringtone playing out with a Donald Trump rally song on one occasion and making a racially insensitive comment about Asian food on another. Homicide/self-defence aside Rittenhouse is clearly guilty of most of the charges against him, if he gets away with these crimes there is clearly multiple justice systems in the US, including a separate one for white supremacists, all charges were eventually dropped on November 19th 2021 after lengthy deliberation by the jury.
