“That weapon doesn’t belong on a mantle. It doesn’t belong in a museum,” a Rittenhouse family spokesman said. “It belongs where Kyle wants it, and Kyle wants it destroyed.”
As you know, Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all counts for the shooting deaths of two protestors in Kenosha, Wisconsin. who were protesting the beating of Jacob Blake by local police officers in August 2020. At the time of the shooting, Rittenhouse claimed self-defense.
Despite being charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide along with four other charges, 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse has officially been declared not guilty on all counts for the shooting death of two people in Kenosha, Wisconsin. As the verdict was read in the courtroom by the foreman of the 12-person jury, Rittenhouse became overly emotional and started to cry—he further expressed his emotions by collapsing on a chair before embracing his attorney Corey Chirafisi.
In response to the ruling, President Biden stated, “While the verdict in Kenosha will leave many Americans feeling angry and concerned, myself included, we must acknowledge that the jury has spoken. I ran on a promise to bring Americans together, because I believe that what unites us is far greater than what divides us. I know that we’re not going to heal our country’s wounds overnight, but I remain steadfast in my commitment to do everything in my power to ensure that every American is treated equally, with fairness and dignity, under the law.
I urge everyone to express their views peacefully, consistent with the rule of law. Violence and destruction of property have no place in our democracy. The White House and Federal authorities have been in contact with Governor Evers’s office to prepare for any outcome in this case, and I have spoken with the Governor this afternoon and offered support and any assistance needed to ensure public safety.”
