Kyle Rittenhouse’s acquittal and the Ahmaud Arbery killing trial are making the headlines this week. In this sample from the CAFE Insider podcast, Preet and Joyce discuss the strength of Rittenhouse’s self-defense arguments and the rise of vigilantism.
In the full episode, Preet and Joyce break down the impact of video evidence at the Rittenhouse trial and the judge’s handling of the case, which has attracted some controversy. They also discuss the latest developments in the trial for the three men charged with killing Ahmaud Arbery: the implications of Georgia’s citizen’s arrest law, the strength of the prosecutor’s closing arguments, and the meritless comment made by a defense attorney about the presence of Black clergy members in the courtroom.
