Reporter: Rittenhouse Jurors Overheard Commenting on Stress Deliberating Case: “Media Coverage Is Insane”

A New York Times reporter covering the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial in Kenosha, Wisconsin reported he overheard jurors commenting on the stress of deliberating the case as they entered the courtroom Friday morning for their fourth day of deliberations. The jury has not been sequestered.

Nicholas Bogel-Burroughs posted to the Times’ live blog about what he heard the jurors say:

“Jurors have entered the Kenosha courthouse for the fourth day of deliberations, after discussing the case for 23 hours over the previous three days. As jurors entered, several of them thanked sheriff’s deputies for putting up a folding screen that blocked them from public view. “It helps calm my nerves,” one woman said. Another woman could be heard saying the “media coverage is insane,” and a man said he woke up at 3:30 a.m. and couldn’t fall back asleep until 5 a.m.”

Yesterday Judge Bruce Schroeder banned MSNBC from the courthouse after a freelancer with the network was caught following the vehicle carrying the jurors Wednesday night.

Daily protests outside the courthouse have turned violent with arrests made amid concerns that the jurors can hear the protesters inside the jury room.

Jurors were given permission by the judge to take home copies of the 36 page jury instructions last night.
