Kyle Rittenhouse, who shot two people, was found not guilty
A jury acquitted the 18-year-old after his legal team said he acted in self-defense when he shot two people and wounded another during protests last summer in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The 12-member jury deliberated over 25 hours over 4 days before reaching such a verdict. The court reviewed most of the video evidence of the shooting and agreed with Kyle Rittenhouse's testimony that he feared for his life.
Riots erupted in Kenosha on August 25, 2020 after police shot and killed 29-year-old black Jacob Blake. The defendant, who was 17 at the time, took a rifle and joined the crowd of other armed men. On that day, he mortally wounded Joseph Rosenbaum, who pursued him and threw a bag at him, then tried to escape. A crowd of people rushed after Rittenhouse when he shot an unknown man who kicked him and shot Anthony Huber, who hit him with a skateboard. Also, Gage Grosskreutz, armed with a pistol, was wounded.
& # 34; No verdict will bring Huber and Rosenbaum back to life, will not heal the injuries of Grosskreutz and Jacob Blake. No verdict will change the reality in Wisconsin, in which we have to work to ensure justice, & # 34; – said Governor Tony Ivers and called for peace in Kenosha after Kyle's acquittal.
However, protests took place throughout the country. Hundreds of people took part in the demonstrations, which were mostly peaceful. Many protesters stated that the verdict would have been very different if it had been about a black shooter. Jacob Blake's paralyzed uncle Justin said:
& # 34; You can indeed see the underlying systemic racism that is present in the judicial system. & # 34;
