On today’s episode, David and Sarah take a deep dive into the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict with Damon Preston, Kentucky’s Public Advocate and a criminal defense attorney with almost 30 years of experience. They discuss self defense law, the difference between the Rittenhouse trial and the trial of Ahmaud Arbery’s killer, and the ways in which the criminal justice system could be reasonably reformed. Also, David exults in Mississippi’s stinging defeat at the Supreme Court as the court turned back the Magnolia State’s greedy attempt to keep Tennessee from drinking water from its own wells.
