Rittenhouse not guilty in Kenosha murder case




A Wisconsin jury acquitted Kyle Rittenhouse on Friday, siding with the teenager’s claims that he acted in self-defense during the chaotic night in Kenosha last summer that left two men shot dead and a third wounded.


The case quickly became a political flashpoint amid the 2020 presidential campaign and months of protests against police brutality and racial injustice in the wake of the murder of George Floyd by then-Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin.


Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time, argued he was acting in self-defense and was in town to protect property and administer first aid amid intense racial justice protests ignited by the shooting of a Black man, Jacob Blake, by a white police officer.
