MSNBC banned from Rittenhouse trial

Jury tampering!

Judge Bruce Schroeder has banned MSNBC from the Kenosha County Courthouse following an incident where an employee allegedly followed the bus with the jurors. Law professor Jonathan Turley comments, “It is difficult to express how moronic such a decision would be for a network. (For the record, I once worked for NBC/MSNBC as a legal analyst. I have also worked for CBS, BBC, and currently Fox).

Judge Schroeder stated in court:

“Last evening a person who identified himself as James J. Morrison and who claimed that he was a producer with NBC News… and under the supervision of someone… in New York for MSNBC. The police when they stopped him because he was following in the distance of about a block and went through a red light, pulled him over and inquired of him what was going on and he gave that information. He stated he had been instructed by [a supervisor] in New York to follow the jury bus.”

Judge Schroeder than ordered:

“I have instructed that no one from MSNBC news will be permitted in this building for the duration of this trial.”

Turley’s Bottom Line:  If the jurors believed that they were being followed, let alone photographed, it could add to their unease about voting in the case.

    The judge needs to shut this sh*tshow down YESTERDAY.

    Mistrial with prejudice. Toss all charges into the garbage dump. Directed verdict.

    Then some arrests including media for jury intimidation.

    The incompetent clown of a prosecutor needs to be disbarred for pointing a gun at a jury like Alec Baldwin — with his frigging finger on the trigger!

    Enough of this shameful Soviet-like Kangaroo Court B.S. — shut it down Judge!

      100%, Adam.

      The jury is taking as long as it is with deliberations in a case that should never have even gone to trial, because they’re scared.

      Reports of intimidating jurors, threats to the judge, leftist anarchists stationed outside the courtroom screaming their stupid heads off & instigators asking how many cars the crowd plans to “eff up.” These jurors are from Kenosha and don’t want to see their city burn down.

      We now live in a country where intimidation works, where leftists can huff and puff and stomp their feet to get exactly what they want.

      And the fools in charge are either too cowardly to do anything about it, don’t care, or are in agreement.

      The 2022 midterms can’t come soon enough. The new conservatives elected to office need to clean up the rot, and they need to take steps to protect the American public.

      Would also help if we had police chiefs and sherriffs who were more interested in protecting us from crime instead of trying to gain favor with the intimidators & wokesters because they’re either cowards or are eying their next career moves.

        “The new conservatives elected to office … need to take steps to protect the American public.” What steps might those be? What’s their track record in this regard? If Obama’s third term has taught us anything, it’s that the strategies of the past don’t work–can’t work anymore. Conservatives elected in 2022 need to figure out how to destroy the left root and branch, not just postpone their inevitable return to–and abuse of–power. Jan. 6th was many things but first and foremost a golden opportunity lost.

          If only politicians were more concerned with what was good for America as opposed to keeping their gravy train careers going the country would be far better off.

          “What steps might those be?”

          Just look at what Ron DeSantis has accomplished for Florida, fighting against mandates and tyranny, and turning Florida into a law and order state. Have you checked out the comprehensive policing bill he signed into law this past summer? Or how Josh Hawley is courageously fighting back against big tech tyranny?

          They’re restoring the country legally, peacefully, and with dignity.

          Imagine how great this country could be if we had real leaders like this installed in all branches of government.

          No, I’m not referring to establishment and do-nothing Republicans who are more interested in their careers and compromising with radicals, than doing the work of the people. I’m talking about patriots who have hearts of courage.

        Physical intimidation and criminal threats and BLM (burning/looting/mayhem) are sanctioned by most of the powers-that-be.

        It’s only when wrong-thinkers in costumes in a 90-minute beer belly putsch get a year of solitary confinement for misdemeanor trespassing that the system goes into full China-like public punishment mode.

      Deploying the National Guard simultaneous with jury deliberation was/is an easy fix to all this crap. Instead they are an hour away just in case. Brilliant use of manpower.

    I think the judge is hoping the jury brings back a not guilty verdict. Then he will not have to do his job and declare a mistrial!
    Someone at NBC should lose their job.

    One block behind the bus and getting a ticket. No contact. No photos. Freelancer. This whole thing is BS. Didn’t even know his “supervisors” name.


    • David Blaska says:

      Just happened to be driving behind the juror bus? Ran a red light to keep up with the juror bus? Named his supervisor and claimed to be a free-lance producer for MSNBC? I nominate Richard Lesiak as today’s Baghdad Bob!

        Or nominated for Dan O’Donnells Unhinged Liberal of the Day award.

        One block behind the bus along with a bunch of other cars. He did not name anyone from MSNBC as a supervisor. MSNBC called him a free-lance reporter. And when did become a line of questioning when a cop stops you for a red light problem. This judge is trying his best to throw this trial. He reminds me of the ref’s at a Green Bay home game.


  4. AdamC says:

    Wrong wrong wrong as usual.

    -Ran a red light chasing jurors.
    -Got right behind bus with jurors who are being terrorized, and their families, lives, and community threatened.
    -Named NBC News producer in NYC who immediately shut down her social media accounts after being publicly identified as the one who ordered freelance paparazzi to “git” the jurors.

    Can’t libs get ANYTHING right? Is it lies, stupidity, or both?

      Show the cops cam video. Terrorized, threatened? Why not arrest him then. By the way….what’s his name? You talk like you were standing right there.


  5. georgessson says:

    All that aside, I’m worried. Typically “The jury is in” and a Not Guilty verdict is done in a few hours, if not minutes. The late insertion of including other possible charges/convictions have resulted in turmoil for the jurors. We’ll see, but it’s not so simple any more.

    Richard-May-I-Calls-Ya-Dick -Of course I can… Yer flummoxed by real life, and couldn’t extrapolate a wet “Depends” from yer weak bladder.


  6. richard lesiak says:

    What’s the judge going to do about the armed anti-BLM protester in front of his courthouse? Isn’t he “tampering” when the jury bus passes him? And; unlike the reporter, he has a bullhorn and has been fighting with people already. But; I’m sure you right-wingers will have some excuse why it’s OK.

    Judge Peterson dispatched MSDNC from the Kenosha County Courthouse with alacrity.
    That’ll happen when his size14 boot kicks them square in the pants with prejudice.
    All three of MSLSD’s watchers claim they’ve been disenfranchised.
