Tensions flared in Kenosha as protesters began to gather

A jury considered Tuesday regarding the fate of 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse of Kenosha, Wisconsin. Even if they did, protesters outside the courthouse are trying to intimidate them into delivering the desired verdict.

Based on ABC News, Rittenhouse is facing five counts, including first-degree reckless endangerment, first-degree attempted murder and first-degree reckless murder.

If convicted of all five counts, Rittenhouse could face life in prison. His defense team argued throughout the trial that he acted in self-defense because he was assaulted killing two men and injuring one.

Both the defense and the prosecution provided their closing arguments, which placed a burden on the jury to decide Rittenhouse’s fate. But leftists out of court is threatening that possibility.

To be clear, there’s nothing wrong with protesting peacefully, and that might even include some heated arguments. However, some protests have turned into threats.

In a video on Twitter, people can be heard chanting, “If Kenosha doesn’t get it, turn it off!” The song is led by a man wearing a Black Lives Matter hooded sweatshirt.

The man also told how someone received “seven shots in the back” in an apparent connection to the police shooting. Jacob Blake. In October, the U.S. Department of Justice indicted the officer who shot Blake armed with any number of counts, Reuters reported.

While it’s unclear exactly what protesters mean by “closed,” it’s impossible not to think about the actions of BLM rioters following Blake’s death in August 2020.

Looting, arson, and other violence caused more than $50 million in damage to the city, according to Fox News. Pictures from the riot show the devastating effects on the community.

If “turn it off” refers to anything similar to those riots, jury have reason to care.

Threats of riots, arson, and other crimes from outside forces play an increasingly important role in American trials. This is partly because Democrats have not condemned such tactics.

During the trial of Derek Chauvin, Democratic Representative Maxine Waters of California told protesters to “be more confrontational” if Chauvin was not found guilty. This was certainly a message to the jurors that they would face violence if Chauvin was acquitted.

Crowd Justice should have no place in the US, but comments like this only give it more power. As another trial with racist comments nears a verdict, we can only hope and pray similar threats don’t affect the outcome.
