NOT GUILTY: Justice Served in Kyle Rittenhouse Trial as Jury Finds Rittenhouse Not Guilty

The jury has returned a verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse case.

  • First-degree intentional homicide – NOT GUILTY
  • First-degree reckless homicide – NOT GUILTY
  • Attempted first-degree reckless homicide – NOT GUILTY
  • First-degree recklessly endangering safety (2 counts) – NOT GUILTY

Kyle Rittenhouse drew national attention after killing two attackers and injuring another in self-defense during ongoing riots and unrest in Kenosha, WI, in the days following the police shooting of Jacob Blake.

In August of 2020, Kenosha police responded to a 9-1-1 call from Jacob Blake’s girlfriend after Mr. Blake showed up at her residence in apparent violation of a restraining order. As police attempted to apprehend Mr. Blake — who at the time had an outstanding warrant for sexual assault, disorderly conduct relating to domestic abuse, and trespassing — he resisted with force and produced a knife. Police opened fire and Mr. Blake was seriously wounded. A neighbor recorded the incident, and the video quickly went viral.

Footage of the police shooting sparked civil unrest; Jacob Blake is black, and the police officer who shot Jacob Blake is not. Indignation over the police shooting escalated into several days of rampant looting and destruction, leading to $50M in damage and almost 150 buildings being destroyed or maimed in the small Wisconsin urban center.

Neither the Kenosha County DA nor the US Department of Justice elected to press charges against the officer who shot Jacob Blake. The officer returned to regular duty without incident.

Notably, each of Kyle Rittenhouse’s attackers had serious criminal histories. One attacker was a prolific child rapist, the other had a long history of violently abusing women. The surviving attacker also has a criminal past, his involving firearms. More details on the attackers can be found here.

Ultimately, the outcome of this case is good news for America as a whole, bad news for progressive Democrats as a movement, and an all around losing situation for the residents of Kenosha, who have been forced into the unfavorable position of enduring life in a flashpoint of American decline.
