A ruling relevant to free software was recently made by a judge
presiding over the highly publicized trial of Kyle Rittenhouse
in Kenosha, Wisconsin, US.

On the night of August 25 2020, Kyle Rittenhouse shot three men with
a rifle in Kenosha, Wisconsin during heated protests following a police
shooting of a black man.  Rittenhouse, a resident of Antioch, Illinois
was 17 at the time and by law, prohibited from owning a gun or porting
one across state borders.  Nobody had invited him to Kenosha.
He claims innocent on the charges brought to him.  The fatal shootings,
according to his lawyers, was an act of self-defense.

For further information on the incident and the trial, please read
this Wikipedia article:

  Kenosha unrest shooting - Wikipedia

Wikipedia is not a reliable source. Even less so when the media they follow are outright lying. I have seen a video mashup featuring Gaige Grosskreutz's actual testimony on the stand, where he admitted that Kyle Rittenhouse did not shoot him until he pointed his gun at Kyle, followed by MSNBC anchors reporting that Grosskreutz had testified that Kyle shot him while he had his hands up. MSNBC was outright directly lying here: an earlier question asked exactly if Kyle had shot Grosskreutz while he had his hands up, and Grosskreutz admitted that he had not. Wikipedia then follows "trusted" media sources and repeats the lies...
