It looks like we'll soon know what the verdict is.


"Kyle Rittenhouse, his lawyers and prosecutors are now in the courtroom, as is the judge. We expect that a decision will be announced shortly."

Not guilty on all counts. Justice was served, despite the best attempts by the left to thwart it.

I personally thought he would catch minor charges, but watching the prosecution practically make the defense's case for them it isn't surprising he got off.

I guess he was going to be either guilty or not guilty of all counts. I'm surprised it wasn't something in between.

His actions have zero consequences.
It's always everyone's else's fault.
Was it murder? Nope. Is he innocent? Nope.

A US teenager who shot and killed two men during racial justice protests has been cleared of homicide after claiming self-defence.
Kyle Rittenhouse, 18, killed two men and wounded a third on the streets of Kenosha, Wisconsin, on 25 August 2020.
During the high profile and politically divisive trial, his defence said he had feared for his life. Prosecutors argued he was looking for trouble that night.
National Guard troops have been sent to the city amid fears of unrest.

I can't say I'm even a little bit surprised.

Don't know how I would have voted on it.

I hope he takes his time now to rethink his quest for vigilantism and I wish him a happy career as a Matt Gaetz staffer.
