In this episode of the CAFE Insider podcast, Preet and Joyce discuss the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse. They break down the strength of Rittenhouse’s self-defense arguments, the rise of vigilantism, and the judge’s handling of the case, which has attracted some controversy. Preet and Joyce 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.
