Kyle Rittenhouse verdict: He acted in self-defense


After a lengthy trial, Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all five of the charges that he faced. The charges that Rittenhouse faced were first degree reckless homicide, two charges of first degree recklessly endangering safety, first degree intentional homicide, and attempted first degree homicide.
These charges stem from an incident in Kenosha Wisconsin, where on August 25, 2020 Kyle Rittenhouse shot and killed two people and injured another. Kyle started his day in Kenosha cleaning graffiti off of a school. Later that night, video shows Rittenhouse armed and carrying a med kit standing outside of a used car dealership with other armed men. About an hour and a half after that, Joseph Rosenbaum chased Rittenhouse into the used car lot as Kyle yelled “friendly.” Rosenbaum then proceeded to try and take Rittenhouse’s gun. Kyle then shot him four times, killing him. Rittenhouse shot Rosenbaum in fear of what would happen if Rosenbaum got his gun. Rittenhouse then got chased by the angry and upset crowd, he trips and falls. Anthony Huber came after Rittenhouse after he shot Rosenbaum. Huber swung a skateboard at Kyle’s head. Anthony Huber was fatally shot by Rittenhouse. Then Gaige Grosskruetz advanced towards Rittenhouse out of the crowd with a handgun which he then pointed at Rittenhouse’s head. Rittenhouse shot Grosskruetz in the bicep.
It is evident that Rittenhouse was not at the protests in Kenosha to do harm. He went with a med kit to help wounded people and also to protect the used car dealership from being destroyed.
Rittenhouse acted in self defense; thus, being found not guilty was the right verdict.
