Kyle Rttenhouse cries after verdict

The 7 man, 5 woman jury in Kenosha Wisconsin has reached a verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse Trial. Rittenhouse is on trial for the death of two men and the wounding of a third, during the Blake Edwards riots in Kenosha in August 2020. The defense has claimed that the 17 year old acted in self defense. The trial has gripped the nation.

The judge called the jury into the courtroom to read the verdict at noon on Friday, Nov. 19, 2021. Not guilty of the murder of Rosenbaum. Not guilty of the other dead man. Not guilty of the assault of two other men.

Rittenhouse, 18, broke down in tears as the Jury found that he was in fact defending himself in 4 separate causes of action for murder, attempted murder and endangerment.

The case has divided Americans along political lines. Some on the left vigorously support anger expressed by Americans over police shootings in the "Covid" summer of 2020. And those on the right who believe that setting neighborhoods on fire and looting businesses or police stations, is never justified.
