The Judge in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial dismissed a juror on the third day of deliberation because they told a joke to the courtroom deputy about the police shooting of Jacob Blake.

A Wisconsin district attorney declined to bring criminal charges against the Kenosha officers involved in the police shooting of Jacob Blake in his back that left the 29-year-old father paralyzed from the waist down.
