The 17-year-old accused of murdering two people during Black Lives Matter protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, will not face gun charges in his home state of Illinois.
Kyle Rittenhouse faces two counts of two counts of first-degree intentional homicide after traveling from his home town of Antioch to join up with militia groups at the protest on August 25.
The suspect was originally accused of traveling across state with an AR-15 rifle he was not legally allowed to possess and using it
Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager accused of shooting two protesters in Kenosha, Wis., this summer, will not face any charges in his home state of Illinois, The Associated Press reported Tuesday.
Prosecutors in Illinois said an investigation found that the AR-15-style rifle used in the Kenosha shooting was purchased, stored and used in Wisconsin, according to the AP. There was no evidence that the gun was ever in Rittenhouse’s physical possession in Illinois, the Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office said.
Rittenhouse is being held in a juvenile detention center in Lake County, Ill., without bond. He is due back in court on Oct. 30 for an extradition hearing, where he is challenging his extradition from Illinois to Wisconsin.
Rittenhouse, 17, is charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the killing of two protesters during demonstrations in Kenosha over the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man who was shot during
Australia’s home affairs secretary says state security must be ‘ubiquitous without being oppressive’
The head of Australia’s home affairs department contends security in 2020 is no longer a matter of protection or survival, but increasingly a shared societal responsibility – a question of “how we should band together and pool our capacities for living”.
Mike Pezzullo, the high-profile and periodically controversial head of Peter Dutton’s mega department, used a university lecture on Tuesday evening to float his concept of “the extended state” as a relevant construct for managing contemporary threats.
The “extended state”, Pezzullo told the National Security College at the Australian National University, was “a networked and dynamic conception of security which comprehends sectors across society and the economy”.
Pezzullo said the concept was comprised of public institutions in the executive analysing risks and threats and deploying operational capacity – the “vital centre” as he put it.

All Houston, Texas, resident Alice Torres has wanted in the three years since Hurricane Harvey hit was to repair her family’s flood-damaged home so her 85-year-old mother can feel safe and settled again.
But when her mother, Dolores Torres, died from COVID-19 on Aug. 2, her family was still trying to get help from a Houston program that has been criticized for its slow pace in repairing homes damaged by the massive storm. The state took over the program this week and Torres and other residents who have applied for assistance say they’re worried that could lead to yet more delays.
“She deserved so much better. She deserved her house. She deserved to have seen it nice,” Torres, 54, said. She said her home still has Harvey-related electrical and plumbing issues due to insufficient help from insurance and shoddy work from a contractor.

The camera for Apple’s iPad and Watch event last month zoomed around the spaceship-shaped headquarters, inspirational, thumping orchestral music playing as it rose up to meet the clear blue sky and shining sun before dropping down to a transition shot to find CEO Tim Cook walking the glass-lined halls of the corporate HQ. A large free-standing rainbow sculpture could be seen off on the right, in the center of Apple Park. With the invites for Apple’s Oct. 13 event out, you can anticipate the same kind of spectacle for the upcoming iPhone 12.
In other words, picture perfect.
It’s the kind of polish you’d expect from Apple, which spares no expense when it comes to presenting

The University of Wyoming men’s basketball team will open the home portion of its Mountain West schedule hosting Colorado State in the Border War on January 5.
The conference portion of the Cowboys schedule was released on Friday in connection with the Mountain West Conference.
The schedule is subject to approval from state, county and local officials. The conference slate features 18 games — nine at home and nine on the road, including Saturday home contests under first-year head coach Jeff Linder.
The Cowboys return four players from last season, all from the Front Range — leading scorer Hunter Maldonado (16.4 points per game), Hunter Thompson, Kwane Marble II and Kenny Foster. A fifth Front Range athlete, Austin Mueller, who would have been a redshirt senior after two injury plagued seasons, will graduate in December, and will not return.
Linder also added the top rated recruiting class in the Mountain
WILMINGTON, Del. — Lauren Witzke, a dabbler in QAnon, a self-proclaimed “flat earther” and the Republican Party’s nominee in Delaware for the Senate, was exhorting her supporters last month to “Go get ’em — America First,” as they squared off against a handful of Black Lives Matter protesters.
Gathered with her in the parking lot of the Republican Party headquarters here was a self-appointed security guard with a gun on his hip, a political adviser whose losing clients include candidates accused of racism and anti-Semitism, and a smattering of Proud Boys, the far-right brawlers whom President Trump told to “stand back and stand by.”
Across the street, Keandra McDole, sister of a wheelchair-bound Black man who was killed in 2015 by the Delaware police, chanted “Lauren Witzke’s got to go,” above the din of revving car engines and calls of “Trump, Trump, Trump” and “K.K.K.” The “security” man pointed his
