Pritzker Signs Warrant, Rittenhouse Fights Extradition in First Court Appearance

Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17 year old who was arrested after a shooting incident in Kenosha, WI, made his first video appearance in court on Friday. He did not speak other than “Good morning, your honor”.

His attorney, John Pierce, explained that he intends to fight extradition.

“We intend to challenge extradition by writ of habeas corpus,” Pierce said. Pierce added that he would need 30 days to prepare a writ of habeas corpus, according to the Star Tribune.

Pierce also appeared via remorte video.

The defense asked for 30 days to prepare a writ of habeas corpus.

“There is, as you probably know, there’s an immense amount of video evidence and we really do need to be able to review that along with our client,”

Lake County Judge Paul Novak gave them 14 days to prepare.

Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker signed a warrant to extradite Rittenhouse back to Wisconsin where he'll be facing life in prison if he gets convicted of the two counts of first-degree intentional homicide and one count of attempted intentional homicide. He was also charged with recklessly endangering the safety of two other victims and possessing a weapon while under the age of 18.

Video evidence seems to show an entirely different story, though, and many feel that Rittenhouse is being used as a political pawn to keep conservatives from fighting back against the violent riots across the country.

  1. This is political correctness, WOKE slime run amok. The kid was clearly running away from these terrorist and clearly attacked. He was forced to defend his life. The governor want to prosecute him because he doesn’t want people to look more closely at his failure of leadership and failure to
    Protect the citizenry from riot, arson, assault and murderous mayhem.

  2. The governor is corrupt, and supporting the marxist attempt to overthrow the Government of the United States of America, and the Constitution. He must be arraigned, prosecuted as an accessory to inciting violence, and lethal assault, with intent to commit 1rst degree murder of the 17 year old victim. Show him no mercy.

  3. I am a retired R.N., and I have followed Kyle Rittenhouse’ story very closely in the news and on videos. I, along with Pam Bondi, former Attorney General of Florida, believe that there WAS a “rush to judgement” in Kyle’s case, as he was charged only TWO days after the incident. I do believe that Rittenhouse is being used as a political pawn to keep conservatives from fighting back against the violent riots across the country. I watched the video closely, and Kyle appears in the entire video to be DEFENDING himself after he first started running AWAY from the thugs who did possess guns, and who WERE burning, looting small businesses, and smashing windows, and police cars, etc. etc. Kyle had good intentions, and he protected himself HEROICALLY from thugs who WOULD HAVE KILLED HIM, HAD HE NOT DEFENDED HIMSELF!!! Kyle is just a kid. He was up against total anarchists and killers. Life in prison is NOT a just sentence for this 17-year old!!

  4. That evil, corrupt, demon possessed governor Pritzker needs to go to hell. He is trying to ruin that young man’s life and I hope in the end he gets sued for everything, like Nick Sandmann. He needs Lin Wood for his case. I will pray for him, and that GOD brings that evil DEM governor, Pritzker needs to be sent to prison for this,.

  5. Based on everything I have seen this young man was fighting for his life. Please help him. He needs all the counsel he can find because the democratic’s fight dirty and they’ll do everything in the playbook just because they can and exalt over it
