“On Friday November 19th, 2021, jurors in Kenosha, Wisconsin found defendant Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty on all counts, after the teen was charged with first degree homicide in an act of self-defense during Kenosha’s 2020 summer riots. After four days of deliberation and fifteen days of trial, Rittenhouse (18) will return to society as a free and innocent man. Not only is this a big day for Kyle Rittenhouse, but as a Nation we preserve the constitutional right to bear arms and act in just self-defense.
Rebecca Weber, President and CEO of AMAC, America’s fastest growing conservative group, commented: “The judge in this case noted the process ‘justifies confidence that the founders of the country placed’ in juries and our judiciary. I could not have said it better. This process and verdict demonstrate the enduring strength of America, the wisdom of our Founders and courage of thoughtful citizens, who every day sit on juries. We are a nation of laws, borders, and rights, not of lawlessness. We are a nation with a constitution that protects our right to self-defense through the 2nd Amendment, fair trial in the 6th and Separation of Powers, allowing a jury of our citizen peers to confirm the reasonableness of our actions.” Added Weber, “this is a day of celebration for rule of law, a guarantee in which every Americans should take comfort, we are blessed to live in the greatest nation in the world, where rights mean something, and our citizens know it.”
