Young Kyle Rittenhouse stood quivering as each of the 5-counts was read aloud, and with each “NOT GUILTY” verdict, the teenager’s body shook uncontrollably, until the final 5th count of “NOT GUILTY” was announced, Rittenhouse crumbled to the ground in an emotional heap, struggling to breathe.
Regaining his balance he slumped into his chair weeping, still struggling to breathe, as an attendant handed him a bottle of water. Regaining his composure momentarily, he hugged his attorney until he, once again, broke down in tears, the verdict perhaps not fully registering in his brain.
It was an emotional and riveting moment for those of us who followed the trial, hoping that the evidence would finally exonerate the young lad, who had been mocked, vilified and scorned by an out of control media. A media that refused to report the facts concerning that awful night, when a 17-year old kid foolishly decided to confront the violent mob, attempting to do what law enforcement refused to do.
Judge Bruce Schroeder had presided admirably over the proceedings, engaged in one last final act before he dismissed the jury; “I couldn’t have asked for a better jury to work with and it has truly been my pleasure.”
Adding; “I think, without commenting on your verdict, the verdicts themselves, just in terms of your attentiveness and the cooperation that you gave to us, justifies the confidence that the founders of our country placed in you, so I dismiss you at this time.”
He continued: “You’re never under any obligation to discuss any aspect of this case with anyone. You’re welcome to do so as little or as much as you want.”
Rittenhouse spokesperson Dave Hancock told Fox News that “it’s clear as day Rittenhouse defended himself.”
“I believe they were cerebral and they thought about every piece of the jury instructions,” he said. “So, justice was done for Kyle. He gets to live life as a free young man.”
The jury deliberated 4 days for a total of 26 hours on 5 counts, including first-degree reckless homicide, two counts of first-degree intentional homicide and two counts of first-degree reckless endangerment. Two additional counts had been initially dismissed by Judge Schroeder.
Although justice was served, it’s clear by the continued willful misinformation coming from the left, that America is indeed a divided nation, where indisputable facts within a courtroom setting are either ignored or manipulated by the mainstream media. They are willing to lie in order to push their false narrative, that Kyle Rittenhouse was a gun-toting vigilante and a white supremacist.
A slanderous phrase even uttered by President Biden last year. Then-presidential candidate, Joe Biden, compared Kyle Rittenhouse to “white supremacists and militia groups” during a video posted to his Twitter in 2020.
After scanning the Fakenews MSM ( Even Fauxnews ) something needs to be said. First Rittenhouse was not a White Supremist. Second: Rittenhouse was not a Vigilante. Third:This case was not about Race in any way. And lastly the Fakenews MSM is the enemy of America and the people.— Brad Oland (@brad_oland) November 20, 2021
The video was made in response to former President Donald Trump’s comments during the Sept. 30th, 2020 presidential debate.
Ironically, even the same BLM group protesting the verdict on Friday outside the County Courthouse, is the same group that was burning and rioting on the night of August 25th 2020, in Kenosha.
Ben Crump, a civil rights attorney who represented George Floyd, called Rittenhouse “a racist, homicidal vigilante who, like so many white men before him, not only escaped accountability, but laughed in its face,” in a Friday statement.
Adding; “Today, I pray for the victims, I pray for our country, I pray for our children and grandchildren, and I pray that this travesty of a case is an outlier on our path to a more just system, and not a signal of retreat backwards.”
As stated previously, justice prevailed thanks in part to those brave men and women who dissected the evidence and came to the conclusion that Kyle Rittenhouse acted in self-defense.
