Just after noon today in Kenosha, WI, the air we breathed smelled like justice and sweet liberty. Many of us Kenosha residents will sleep well tonight.
As we all knew would happen, Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges, even the gun possession and curfew citation. Kenosha DA Michael Graveley (D) issued the charges less than 48 hours after a pedophile, woman-beater and career criminal all seemingly tried to kill Kyle Rittenhouse, a then-17-year-old. Kyle defended himself, killing two and injuring the third. The prosecution pressed ahead, with no witnesses that supported their case. They tried to break so many rules to force a mistrial. The judge didn’t bite.
12 jurors were selected from Kenosha County to decide Kyle’s fate. They reached a unanimous verdict after more than three days of deliberation. This is the best justice system in the world. It has flaws because people have flaws, but it is the best none-the-less. This case codifies the second amendment and the right to self-defense. It also should caution us to beware of progressive prosecutors like Michael (Mike) Graveley (D) who act as legislators and charge crimes against people for actions that they believe should be illegal but are not.
Far-left Kenosha News “journalist” Deneen Smith angrily left the courthouse after hearing the “not guilty” verdicts. She looked extremely mad. When asked if she was upset about the verdict, she gave a dirty look and scoffed. She then began tweeting about the need for gun control and blasting Rittenhouse and Tucker Carlson. She expressed her anger about the verdict and re-tweeted many tweets sympathizing with the career violent criminals including pedophile Joseph Rosenbaum. The Kenosha News, owned by Lee Enterprises, claims to be non-biased. They are not. Smith won’t sleep well tonight. She wanted Kyle to rot in prison. She didn’t get her wish.
Governor Tony Evers (D) sent out a statement saying that people should be free from violence. Unsure if he was talking about the three creeps that tried to kill Rittenhouse, or Rittenhouse himself.
Graveley also sent out a statement admitting defeat:
For 15 months, the far-left and believers of fake news have blamed my call-to-arms on the “Kenosha Guard” Facebook page for the death of two creeps and injury of another creep. Today, Kyle Rittenhouse was found innocent of ALL charges. The system worked like it was supposed to. Last year our city burned to the ground. Pedophiles, woman-beaters, and career criminals were allowed to run rampant and caused destruction to buildings, lives and our sense of safety. Our Mayor, County Executive, Sheriff and Governor, ALL Democrats, failed to request outside help from neighboring communities and president Trump. They have egg on their face. Rittenhouse was their fall guy. Not anymore. These politicians now own this alone. Kyle has been vindicated. I have been vindicated. Thank God for the United Stated of America!
Mark, Patricia McCloskey, and I had a discussion about the political prosecution of Kyle Rittenhouse. They had a personal experience with this. Kyle and his lawyers beat the politicians, much like the McCloskeys. They came out on top too, but only after a governor pardon.
At the end of the day, justice has been done. Even after the Kenosha DA’s office violated the constitution, pre-trial orders and committed other prosecutorial misconduct, they still lost. But we still need to stay vigilant and keep these types of zero-integrity prosecutors out of our communities.
