For weeks now, all eyes have been on Wisconsin and the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, who shot and killed two men and injured a third during the riots in Kenosha.
Kyle’s defense has consistently claimed he was acting in selfe defense, while his critics insisted it was murder.
Now a jury has spoken. They found him innocent on all charges.
Breitbart News reports:
Verdict: Kyle Rittenhouse Found Not Guilty on All Charges
A jury in Kenosha, Wisconsin, found 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty of all charges on Friday.
The jury had deliberated since Tuesday morning. Rittenhouse was visibly moved by the announcement of the verdict.
Rittenhouse had faced two charges of murder, one charge of attempted murder, and two charges of reckless endangerment relating to a melée near midnight on August 25, 2020, during Black Lives Matter riots in the small Midwestern city.
That night, Rittenhouse and a group of armed volunteers were guarding a car dealership that had been torched the night before. After Rittenhouse put out a fire, he was chased by a rioter named James Rosenbaum, who reached for Rittenhouse’s AR-15-style rifle.
Rittenhouse fired four times, hitting Rosenbaum and wounding him mortally. The shots also nearly hit Daily Caller journalist Richie McGinniss, who was covering the riots, though he was ultimately not wounded…
The defense argued that Rittenhouse had acted in self-defense, in reasonable fear of imminent death or grievous bodily harm.

Liberals in media and people on the far left are already losing their minds over this verdict.
They don’t want people to be able to defend themselves. They want the mob to rule.
