BREAKING: Kyle Rittenhouse Deemed INNOCENT On ALL COUNTS
Jurors in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Friday determined that Kyle Rittenhouse is not guilty on all counts, concluding an intense trial surrounding the self-defense of a teenager who was attacked by vicious and violent rioters during deadly unrest in the city last summer.
Rittenhouse, 18, would have faced a mandatory life sentence if he was convicted of first-degree intentional homicide.
The verdict came on the fourth day of deliberations and the 15th day of the trial.
Many officers, pro BLM + Antifa protestors, and members of the media were seen waiting outside of the courthouse Friday.
Various prominent political commentators have taken to social media in order to celebrate the verdict.
“The jury got it right—finding Rittenhouse not guilty on all charges. The fact that charges were brought before any serious investigation is evidence that the government was motivated by politics, which itself should be considered criminal,” posted former Democrat Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard.
Reporter and Senior Editor of Human Events Jack Posobiec highlighted Facebook’s continued false labeling of Kyle Rittenhouse as a “mass murderer.”
Many have also pointed out that the media lied about and tarnished Rittenhouse’s image repeatedly, prompting suggestions that the Kenosha teen sue those who slandered him for defimation.
