Judge Bruce Schroeder speaks to the attorneys about how the jury will view evidence as they deliberate during Kyle Rittenhouse's trial at the Kenosha County Courthouse.

Kyle Rittenhouse has been acquitted of all charges in a criminal trial that’s underscored deep divides over gun rights, vigilantism, and racial justice protests.

And throughout the trial, Judge Bruce Schroeder has garnered a lot of attention.

From NPR‘s coverage of the case:

The trial has raised tough questions about judges — who gets to be one, how they’re assigned cases, how they’re appointed, and how they’re removed.
