KENOSHA, WI – After several days of deliberation, the jury has read its verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse case.
The jury announced on Friday morning that Kyle Rittenhouse is NOT GUILTY on all charges lodged against him, including two counts of first degree murder, attempted first degree murder, and two counts of first degree recklessly endangering safety.
Judge Bruce Schroeder had already dismissed a sixth charge of possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under the age of 18.
Rittenhouse’s defense claimed the shootings were in self defense, and he himself testified, “I didn’t do anything wrong. I defended myself.” He also said that he feared for his life as the deceased ran towards him and grabbed at the firearm Rittenhouse was holding.
Defense had also filed for a mistrial due to the prosecution failing to provide video evidence to them in a timely manner, and providing altered and lesser-quality video to them when it was finally handed over.
Rittenhouse cried and hugged his attorney after the verdict was read.
While the verdict is a relief, the city, and possibly other cities around the nation, are in for a busy weekend of rioting, as there have already been pallets of bricks located by police in Kenosha.
