After two weeks of deliberation, the jurors found Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty on all five counts of murder. The jurors initally had some concerns about the instructions on making the decision. One of the jurors even asked the judge if taking the instructions were permissible, and he obliged.
Kyle Rittenhouse shot two people at a protest for Jacob Blake on August 25, 2020. A 17 year old with an AR-15 showed up and got into two altercations, and shot and killed them.
Outside a local church, pastors led residents in a prayer vigil Friday night, with some toting signs that said “Heal Kenosha.”
The fact that he got off with committing the murders scotch free has raised eyebrows and sparked controversy globally. Fearing future acquittals of vigilante, protestors were triggered. Because most of us know that if Kyle was of another decent or skintone, he would have gone to jail, hands down. But here he is, doing conferences, podcasts and gaining the nods of legislatives and conservatives.
Recently, he received a standing ovation at a conference. “You’re a hero to millions,” Turning Point USA leader Charlie Kirk told Rittenhouse during the group’s AmericaFest gathering in Phoenix. “It’s an honor to be able to have you.”Since being found not guilty of all five charges against him in his murder trial he has received support from Republican politicians and conservatives.
