I’m not long back from a week-long stay in Kenosha. This incredible trip was one of the best decisions of my life to date, of that I am sure.
I flew from Madrid, Spain to Chicago in the U.S. and spent a few days at the start and at the end of my visit in the city, but Kenosha was, of course, my focus.
Since returning from the U.S. I have been absolutely snowed under with my normal work, the stuff that pays the bills, but I can assure you that I returned to Spain armed with a wealth of information.
I spent a week in Judge Schroeder’s court and even had a private one-on-one chat with him in his chambers after he invited me in for an informal chat. We spoke for an hour at least about the trial, American politics and the media. He was extremely welcoming and friendly and he invited me back the following day too.
Did the Judge know what he would have ruled had he been faced to address the pending mistrial motion? Well I asked him! I also gave my own opinions on various things, to which he replied: “You know your stuff!” As someone who knows very little about U.S. Criminal Law, I’ll take it 😉
Many things were unfairly written about Judge Schroeder and I will dispel them.
As well as Judge Schroeder, I met other key individuals including those who gave testimony in the trial. On a personal level I also made some new friends for life. Trust me, this whole experience was incredible.
I would love to tell you more but time is not on my side at the moment and I guess that’s the whole purpose of the book! I left with knowledge from my visit that I wouldn’t have been able to obtain had I not made what I first thought was a crazy decision to visit. I also left with some insightful photographs that I don’t want to post online.
I am planning on returning to Kenosha within a few months, but first I must finish the book. I need to crack on with it and that’s why this update is brief and why I haven’t had much time to update you with other related content.
Before signing off, I want to remind my followers that I am in no way politically biased or politically motivated. I’m on nobody’s ‘side’. I have opinions, but I don’t support anyone or anything by default. Some people I know think Kyle should have been convicted, others that I know share the opposite view. We still respect each other’s rights to those opinions and if more people had that attitude, maybe fewer people would be losing their lives today.
Thank you to those of you who made me feel welcome in Kenosha. I can’t wait to see you again real soon!
