On Friday, a jury found 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty of all of the charges against him. When the verdict was read, Rittenhouse became visibly emotional.
Rittenhouse is charged with multiple counts following the shootings of Joseph Rosenbaum, Anthony Huber and Gaige Grosskreutz during a riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on August 25, 2020.
In a video posted to Twitter by the Daily Caller, the salesperson reads out the five allegations against Rittenhouse in turn. During each count, she revealed the jury had found Rittenhouse not guilty.
While the verdicts for the first two charges were read, Rittenhouse remained relatively calm and collected. After the clerk read out the not guilty verdict on the third charge, which involved recklessly endangering an unidentified male, Rittenhouse started to shed tears.
During Huber’s fourth reading of attempted murder, Rittenhouse held back tears and began to tremble slightly.
Finally, after the clerk announced that the jury had found Rittenhouse not guilty of a fifth crime in the Grosskreutz murder, Rittenhouse burst into tears and appeared to fall to the floor.

Even as Rittenhouse began to hold his breath, he was still very emotional. When another member of his defense handed him a bottle of water, Rittenhouse was still shaking.

Many high configuration Conservatives commemorated the ruling on Twitter and said it provided justice for Rittenhouse.
Not guilty is the correct sentence. Anyone with a prefrontal cortex who has watched the test for more than 30 seconds knows this. Anyone who says otherwise is a liar.

Regardless of his next move, Rittenhouse will walk out of the courthouse in Kenosha, Wisconsin, as a liberal.
