‘There is no accountability’: Distraught family of one of the two men shot dead by Kyle Rittenhouse say his not guilty verdict ‘sends unacceptable message that armed civilians can show up in any town and incite violence’
The family members of the men shot by Kenosha teen Kyle Rittenhouse have reacted with shock to his acquittal, after a jury found he acted in self-defense,
Rittenhouse, 18, was acquitted on all counts on Thursday after he fatally shot two men and wounded another during confrontations as violent protests broke out in August of last year.
‘Today’s verdict means there is no accountability for the person who murdered our son,’ said the family of Anthony Huber, who died from his wounds.
‘It sends the unacceptable message that armed civilians can show up in any town, incite violence, and then use the danger they have created to justify shooting people,’ the family statement added.
