Teenager, Kyle Rittenhouse, who killed two people and shot another during a protest in USA, acquitted on all charges

Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenage boy who killed two people and shot another amid protests and rioting over police conduct in Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA, has been acquitted of first-degree intentional hom!c!de and four other felony charges. (Read More Here).


Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges on Friday, November 19, CNN reports.

He had faced five counts, including charges of first-degree reckless hom!c!de, first-degree reckless endangerment, first-degree intentional hom!c!de, and attempted first-degree attempted hom!c!de. He faced up to life in prison had he been convicted.

After 25 hours of deliberation, the 12-person jury accepted Rittenhouse’s explanation that he had acted reasonably to defend himself in an unruly and turbulent scene in August 2020, days after a white police officer shot Jacob Blake, a Black resident, during a summer of unrest following the murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer.
