The legal defense team representing Kyle Rittenhouse is now demanding a mistrial after accusing the prosecution of withholding a key piece of evidence.

As The Daily Wire reports:

The seven-page mistrial request alleged that prosecutors had high-resolution drone footage but failed to produce it, only showing only a grainy low-resolution version of the footage in court. The defense said they only received the higher-resolution clip later on Saturday after testimony was over.

The footage was used by the prosecution in an attempt to prove that Rittenhouse chased the first man he shot, Joseph Rosenbaum, before their positions switched and Rosenbaum began chasing Rittenhouse.

The “compressed version” of the footage “was not as clear as the video kept by the state,” the defense said in their written motion.

“The failure to provide the same quality footage in this particular case is intentional and clearly prejudices the defendant,” the motion stated.

The jury is currently still deliberating on Rittenhouse’s fate. The judge will rule on the defense’s mistrial request after the jury delivers its verdict.

Why can’t the prosecution tell the truth, show the evidence, show the drone footage, show the correct constitution verbiage of the Second Amendment, instead of lying to the jury, instead of trying to convict an innocent man of murder. They had no case and still they lied, they should, THE PROSECTUTION SHOULD BE CHARGED AND DISBARED! No Justice Anymore! PERIOD!

Prosecution is merely a leftists dream to cause division and uprising in the United States. Commiecrats. Withholding vital evidence so the Jury could be swayed it tantamount to Felony.

Here is a partial explanation:
The Star Chamber was an elitist-operated “justice system” or tribunal originally designed so that the British aristocracy was assured a fair trial whenever they actually faced a criminal charge. In other words, it was a special court for the power elites that was separate and superior to the courts used for average peasants. Publicly, it was also presented as a means for commoners to redress grievances against aristocrats, but it was well understood that the Star Chamber would rarely go against the nobility UNLESS they had also offended the king.
During the unrest in the colonies, however, the Star Chamber was used in a different manner; it became a weapon to crush dissent among subjects that spoke out against the empire and sowed the seeds of “sedition.”
The dreaded court was highly secretive, and the public was often obstructed from its proceedings. Its rulings were overseen by the establishment rather than a jury and in many cases, those people being charged were never given a chance to defend themselves. They were sentenced before they ever entered a courtroom if they entered a courtroom at all. And silence was often considered an admission of guilt rather than a right of the accused. Punishments were brutal, including torture and imprisonment under the worst possible conditions.
The death penalty was not allowed, but the court would instead place defendants in conditions so horrible that they tended to die on their own.
All of this was justified under the claim that every person charged was treasonous, and therefore they did not deserve a fair trial among their peers. After the war was over and the British were defeated, the Founding Fathers drafted large portions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights in order to counter and prevent the same abuses they saw under the Star Chamber. The 5th Amendment in particular was directly inspired as a way to stop Star Chamber-like abuses of court power.
