Kenosha Police Detain Person Outside County Courthouse

Kenosha Police were seen detaining a person in front of the courthouse where a jury deliberated for a third day in the case of Kyle Rittenhouse on Thursday, November 18.

Video taken by Brendan Gutenschwager shows the events unfolding in front of the Kenosha County Courthouse on Thursday afternoon. Footage shows police handcuffing an individual in front of a Kenosha Police van as a crowd looks on, some chanting “MAGA” and “Let’s go Brandon.”

Gutenschwager said the person was detained for carrying a firearm within 1,000 feet of a school.

Groups calling for Rittenhouse’s acquittal, as well as those calling for his conviction, gathered in Kenosha on Wednesday, with police mostly keeping the peace.
