How about this bail “modification”? No bail

From Harper’s Weekly Review:

Prosecutors in Kenosha County, Wisconsin, requested that the bail conditions for Kyle Rittenhouse, who shot and killed two people at a Black Lives Matter protest last year, be modified to prohibit him from consuming alcohol, displaying “white power” signs, and consorting with white supremacists after he was seen making the “OK” gesture while drinking at a Wisconsin bar with a group of Proud Boys and his mother.

“…and his mother.”

How about just locking him up without bail? How about THAT?

P.S. And I’ve been pretty mellow over the past week.
