Kyle Rittenhouse Found Not Guilty On All Counts

18

Following the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict, protests have erupted in a number of cities across the country. Rittenhouse was acquitted on Friday of all charges in connection to a 2020 shooting during unrest in Kenosha, Wis., in connection to the earlier police shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man. Rittenhouse fatally shot two men and wounded another after traveling from his home state of Illinois to Kenosha; he shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and injured 26-year-old Gaige Grosskreutz. His attorneys argued that he acted in self-defense. The case ignited a storm of media attention and strong and differing opinions. After the verdict was read, outrage and, for some, celebration ensued outside of the courthouse where demonstrators had been gathering throughout the trial, according to the Kenosha News. On Friday evening, protests broke out in several cities across the country. Authorities in Portland, Ore., referred to one incident near the Multnomah County Justice Center as a riot and warned all present to vacate the area or risk being met with force. The Portland Police Bureau said a "significant part of the crowd" were engaging in "violent, destructive behavior" that included breaking windows and throwing objects at officers on the scene.
