A jury has reached a verdict in the homicide trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager who killed two people and shot another during unrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last summer.
Kyle was found not guilty on all charges.
The verdict comes after a two-week trial highlighted by Rittenhouse taking the stand and telling the jury he shot the men in self-defense.
“I didn’t do anything wrong. I defended myself,” he testified.
Rittenhouse, now 18, was charged with five felonies:
- First-degree intentional homicide
- First-degree reckless homicide
- Attempted first-degree intentional homicide
- Two counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety
We can’t believe they let him walk free, but at the same time we absolutely can.
