Kyle Rittenhouse speaks for the first time after his acquittal – rt usa news

Kyle Rittenhouse shared his thoughts after a Wisconsin jury acquitted him of murder charges. The teenager was charged with criminal offenses after he shot dead two people amid unrest in Kenosha.

“The jury returned the correct verdict. Self-defense is not illegal. Rittenhouse said, as he was filmed in the back seat of a car. “I’m glad everything went well.

“It was a tough trip, but we did it. We went through the difficult part ”, the teenager said in a teaser for Fox News’ upcoming documentary about his case.

The jury cleared Rittenhouse of all felony charges, including intentional first degree homicide, on Friday after more than three days of deliberation.

The prosecution argued that Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time and armed with an AR-15 type rifle, broke the law by killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber and injuring Gaige Grosskreutz amid protests and the BLM riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin in August 2020.

Rittenhouse claimed he was defending himself against an aggressive person, and later against an angry mob chasing him.

The teenager struggled to control his emotions during the trial, both when he appeared on the stand and when he heard the verdict in court. Rittenhouse’s attorney, Mark Richards, said he received counseling for PTSD and was having trouble sleeping.

Rittenhouse himself developed his struggles in the documentary. “These are the things that keep you awake at night. Once you finally fall asleep, your dreams are about what happened, and you wake up [in] cold sweat,” he said, adding that after the Kenosha incident he had nightmares “each night.”

I’m alive but what could have happened? Like, what if I’m not alive? Or what if I let Mr. Rosenbaum steal my gun?

“Almost every result is that I am seriously injured, injured or dead. These are just the dreams I have on a daily basis,” said Rittenhouse.
