On August 25, 2020, during night three of protests in Kenosha Wisconsin following the shooting in the back of Jacob Blake, 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse fatally shot two protesters, and seriously wounded a third. Kyle Rittenhouse’s lawyers are arguing that the 17-year-old acted in self-defense.

Recent controversy has circulated, as the existence of the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing guidelines has led to live court hearings being livestreamed via YouTube. Meanwhile, the high-profile trial of former Minneapolis police officers Derek Chauvin, Thomas Lane, Tou Thao and J. Kueng is coming up in March, and broadcast coverage of the court proceeding is being debated.

On August 23, the shooting of Jacob Blake by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin led to nationwide outrage and unrest. 

As an investigation into the incident persists, Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul refuses to answer whether officers were aware before the shooting that Blake had a knife in his possession.
