Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old Black man, was shot and injured by a police officer on August 23, 2020, in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The shooting of Blake sparked local protests for days. Three days later, then-17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse shot and killed two men and injured another man.
The juror refused the judge’s request to repeat the joke in court. ‘It’s clear the appearance of bias is present, and it would seriously undermine the outcome of the case,’ said Judge Schroeder. ‘The public needs to be confident that this is a fair trial.’
