Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges on Friday, after his trial for shooting three people, killing two of them in Kenosha last year.

Rittenhouse broke down in tears, nearly collapsing as the jury announced they had found him not guilty of all charges. He had faced five counts, including charges of first-degree reckless homicide, first-degree reckless endangerment, first-degree intentional homicide, and attempted first-degree attempted homicide.

Not surprising given Wisconsin laws.

The Prosecution has the burden to prove its self defense. Makes it almost impossible to get a conviction in cases where self defense is claimed.

On the bright side, ANTIFA, BLM and others should now come armed to all protests and rallies.

Typical white privilege

"On the bright side, ANTIFA, BLM and others should now come armed to all protests and rallies."

Probably won't end well for ones who throw and project objects at police and others or otherwise engage in violence. But if they're actually peacefully protesting, I see no problem with that.

I haven't quite understood how this is playing out as racist.

The people he shot are white.

He hangs out with racists, Bill.

Not that hard to figure out.

White supremacists and nazis have killed an awful lot of "white" people in their pursuit of white supremacy.

It's easy Bill.

Instead of Kyle Rittenhouse, the white boy who was scared and was defending himself.

It's Ahmed Hakim, the black Muslim boy who was scared and was defending himself.

It's about the cops not shooting him when he was running towards them with an AR.

The judge who wouldn't let his victims be called victims.

The amount of leniency and benefit of a doubt that was given to him.

The entire Republican Party coming to his defense and raising $2 million even though he killed two people and shot a third.

This isn't about who Kyle shot.

It's about an entire system working for him, instead of for justice, because of what he looks like. Instead of who he is.

Which literally wouldn't have happened had he been any other race.

Trayvon Martin was painted as an aggressive thug.

Kyle Rittenhouse was celebrated as a hero.
