FIVE hundred National Guard troops have been placed on standby in Kenosha as closing arguments in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial begin on Monday.

Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers is preparing for unrest after dramatic scenes in the courtroom as the teen told the jury about shooting three Black Lives Matter protesters last summer.

Rittenhouse was just 17 when he went to Kenosha in summer 2020 with an AR-style semi-automatic rifle and a medical kit as protests erupted over the wounding of a black man by a white police officer.

The former police youth cadet told the court last Wednesday, on the seventh day of his murder trial, that he wanted to safeguard property from the unrest in the wake of Jacob Blake’s injury.

Closing arguments will be given on Monday for up to five hours.

The jury of eight men and 10 women will be narrowed to 12 by a drawing of names with a verdict expected this week.
