The Milwaukee Bucks are certainly not happy with the verdict on Kyle Rittenhouse’s case. The jury acquitted Kyle even though he shot and killed two men. The Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer says the organization will “continue to fight for the better.”
Kyle Rittenhouse was a seventeen-year-old boy from Antioch, Illinois, who shot dead two men and wounded three others just a day after police shot Jacob Blake. A local Kenosha cop shot Blake seven times, claiming that Blake was in possession of some illegal weapon when he actually didn’t.
This led to the beginning of the “Black Lives Matter” movement, which further showcased all the brutality that police have committed against Black people. Racism is very common in America, and black people have been unjustly accused of everything.
Rittenhouse was charged with two counts of murder, one attempted murder, two endangering lives, and one count of unlawfully possessing a firearm and violating a curfew.
The trial took place in November 2021, in which the jury dismissed illegal possession of a gun and violation of the curfew, and acquitted him of all counts of murder and endangerment. dangerous.
The Milwaukee Bucks will keep fighting

In January, both the Bucks and the Detroit Pistons knelt for seven seconds after kickoff to pay their respects to Jacob Blake; per second for each bullet. This was to show their protest against the Judge’s decision to charge the shooter for Blake’s murder.

“Still trying to push for the better in our country. Hope for improvement. Organizationally, just keep fighting for social justice, for the greater good. But at the same time, we must abide by the decision of the Trial Panel and the sentence, and continue to fight for the better.”
Brooklyn Nets coach Steve Nash also spoke up, saying: “Obviously these situations are disappointing and it’s important not to become dismayed and let people continue to fight for the kind of justice and equality that serves all.”

The Atlanta Hawks’ Point Guard also changed its profile to a black one and tweeted:
Warriors coach Steve Kerr also expressed his concerns about gun laws in the US. He say,
“It is not a shocking ruling, but one that poses great risk in the future if we continue down this path of openness and affirmative declaration that everyone can bring, including underage people, weapons of war. This is America. Step on a dangerous path.”
