The Kyle Rittenhouse trial is certainly one of the most talked-about and high-profile trials right now. Despite all of his offences, he still has his supporters for some reason. It seems there have been protests all over the USA after what happened in the trial.

For those who don’t know, Rittenhouse shot three men during demonstrations in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August 2020. This resulted in two deaths and one of them was injured. According to the New York Times, the teenager faces six counts, including charges of first-degree intentional homicide.

Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty of all counts, and now the 18-year-old will walk free. Many celebrities have already expressed their disdain for the not guilty verdict.

In wake of the verdict, protests erupted from coast-to-coast. This included people from New York who took to the streets and shared their rage for the verdict. Cars were vandalized and the words, “f*** you” were sprayed on the handicapped placard of a vehicle.

There was also a protest outside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn as several protesters held signs, one which read … “No justice in the capitalist courts” and “capitalism breeds racist terror.” In Portland, protesters threw many things at police officers. As for Chicago, protests took place but not in large numbers.
