RedState reported that Kyle Rittenhouse’s murder trial after he defended himself in the Kenosha Riots has taken many turns over the past few weeks. However, the closing arguments had been concluded at the end of the week and the search began for a verdict.
Although the trial was delayed by many, it ended up taking more than 24 hours for the jury to reach a decision.
Kyle Rittenhouse is now available NOT GUILTY On all counts.
KYLERITTENHOUSE IS NOT FOUND GUILTY FOR ALL CHARGES

This case was seen as a milestone in how self-defense is handled in the country, with many suggesting that Rittenhouse being found guilty would result in a significant reduction in one’s right to defend themself. Numerous pieces of video evidence show Rittenhouse being pursued by and beat up by rioters on the night that he discharged his weapon. However, Rittenhouse was alleged to have provoked the youth who shot him.
You can expect coming unrest given this verdict, though, hopefully, things won’t get violent. The media and many Americans were emotionally invested in Rittenhouse being found guilty despite the obvious evidence showing he wasn’t. Kenosha law enforcement will be ready for whatever may happen.
There’s a ton more to analyze here, and RedState will have many more pieces today discussing the result so stay tuned.
