Kenosha Braces For Kyle Rittenhouse Trial Verdict

The case against Kyle Rittenhouse is expected to go to the jury soon as the city of Kenosha, Wisconsin braces for a potentially violent response.

“I’m scared. I am overwhelmed,” said the defendant’s mother, Wendy Rittenhouse, in an interview with NBC News on Monday, saying that the jury had her “son’s life in their hands.” 

“I will always stand by him,” she added.

As reported by The New York Post, “Officials and businesses in Kenosha are also fearing a repeat of the violent upheaval that rocked the city of about 100,000 people in August last year after the police shooting of Jacob Blake.”
