Jan 21 - Two States Aiming to Adopt Self-Defense Law Named After Kyle Rittenhouse
 

 
A Tennessee legislator introduced a bill earlier this week named for Kyle Rittenhouse that would require the state to reimburse people who are acquitted on self-defense grounds after facing charges in homicide cases.

State Representative Bruce Griffey, who represents District 75 in the Tennessee General a*sembly, is calling the proposed legislation "Kyle's Law," according to Nashville-based WKRN-TV.

Tennessee joins Oklahoma in considering a version of a self-defense bill named for Rittenhouse, the teenager who was acquitted last fall after his legal team argued he acted in self-defense when he fatally shot two people in August 2020 in Kenosha, Wisconsin. A state senator in Oklahoma introduced his state's version of the legislation last November.

Griffey told WKRN his proposed legislation aims to "protect" people from facing the same kinds of legal circumstances Rittenhouse experienced.

"I think it's a reasonable response to make sure citizens are protected from malicious prosecutions or being prosecuted when there's not really enough evidence in the case to pursue a criminal charge against them," Griffey told the station. "They have to go through hiring a lawyer, hiring experts, lost wages—all costs to them. That's not a fair system."

On Tuesday, Griffey filed the legislation for introduction in the Tennessee General a*sembly. The bill "requires a court to order the state to reimburse a criminal defendant for all reasonable costs incurred in defense" when a person facing criminal homicide charges is later acquitted by a jury on self-defense grounds.

If passed, the legislation also would allow courts overseeing such cases "to order the state or the prosecuting attorney, in their individual capacity, to pay damages for malicious prosecution," according to the bill's description.

Attorney Andrew Branca of Law of Self Defense introduced the general idea behind Kyle's Law, which he urged states to adopt, following Rittenhouse's acquittal in November. On the Law of Self Defense website, Branca explained that the proposed legislation would be aimed at "stopping politically motivated prosecutions" of individuals who are charged with crimes after maintaining they acted in self-defense.

Monetary compensation for acquitted defendants that is provided by the state and prosecutor are two of the suggested elements included in the version of Kyle's Law proposed by Branca. Both elements appear in the legislation brought for consideration this week by Griffey.

Oklahoma became the first state to consider a version of Kyle's Law in late November, according to Law of Self Defense. The bill proposed by Oklahoma state Senator Nathan Dahm also includes compensation for individuals who are acquitted on self-defense grounds, according to KOCO-TV in Oklahoma City.

What it's named is odd. Being able to receive compensation for self defense cases seems like a good idea, but that could be interpreted as an encouragement to fatally k*ll when it isn't even necessary.

This is a law to justify vigilantism. The cops dont scare minorities enough now they need to scare us.

unless you're not white, then you don't need any evidence, just a white judge

People are accused of r*pe, theft, and various other crimes all the time. Many of these people are acquitted and receive nothing but a kick in the a*s on the way out of jail.

These bills only protect k*llers and are named after Rittenhouse... not at all pandering and posturing to a certain demographic.

Which is the entire point in the first place.

Self defense is supposed to be a harrowing situation and an absolute last resort. And the trend lately has been to lessen the restrictions on self defense more and more and more until there is no real deterrent. We had already gotten to the point where an adult can pick a f*ght with an unarmed minor, shoot him and have a better self defense claim than the person minding their business.

At least in self defense cases there was a k*lling and every k*lling, justified or not, absolutely should be investigated.

What about the other litany of cases where citizens were wronged and even incarcerated for much longer periods of time that didn’t activate these politician’s sense of justice. And the fact that they unabashedly are only looking at this as a result to Kyle Rittenhouse… should tell you plenty.
