The jury has finally come forward with the verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, the jury has found Rittenhouse not guilty on all charges.
The verdict comes after multiple days of deliberation, unforgivable reporting from the mainstream media, and seemingly endless controversies.
Some quick notes from after the verdict:
- After learning that he was acquitted on all charges Rittenhouse sunk into his chair and hugged his lawyer, Rittenhouse’s family audibly gasped, and the media went into a frenzy.
- The White House declined to comment on the verdict. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said “let me talk to the President and talk to our team and we will get to a statement as soon as we can,” when asked about the verdict during a briefing.
- The judge said that he “couldn’t have asked for a better jury to work with” after the verdict was read.
- The five felonies that Rittenhouse was found not guilty of were; first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide, attempted first-degree intentional homicide, and two counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety. Note that two charges had already been dropped by the judge.
