A local newspaper in Kenosha, Wisconsin has a shined a light in a very dark place and it could turn the Rittenhouse trial upside down.
Kenosha’s Mayor is Democrat John Antaramian, who has been mayor since 2016. He previously served as mayor from 1992 to 2008 however, he will not be seeking a seventh term because of the backlash over how he handled the riots in Kenosha. Resident and business owners were furious he did little to protect the city causing many businesses to be burned.
The people in Kenosha County believe the mayor wants Rittenhouse convicted so it distracts from his poor leadership.
It turns out, the mayor has other members of his family in powerful positions and has a “surrogate” in the courtroom.
First off, the lead detective in this case is Benjamin Antaramian, his[the mayors] nephew. Benjamin wants Kyle convicted. Benjamin was very thirsty to connect Kyle Rittenhouse to the “Kenosha Guard” Facebook page. He grilled Dominic Black about if they had seen the page or not. They desperately wanted to connect the two. They could not. Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook told this to the public twice, once on a Facebook Q and A and again in front of the U.S. Senate.
It has also been learned that despite having a search warrant in hand Det. Antaramian failed to gather evidence.
Kenosha detectives had a signed search warrant, which permitted law enforcement to make a complete backup of Gaige Grosskreutz’s phone. During testimony detective Martin Howard disclosed that detective Antaramian met with Grosskreutz and failed to serve the search warrant. Why? pic.twitter.com/vFQX5vxwRs
