The left is certainly predictable. Many took to Twitter to voice their disapproval of the not guilty verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial. He's now been acquitted after shooting and killing two men and wounding another (in self-defense) last August in Kenosha, WI.
Here are some of the highlights.
Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Democratic Congresswoman Cori Bush.
1619 Project Founder Nikole Hannah-Jones.
Democratic Congressman Jerry Nadler.
MSNBC's Joy Reid.
The American Civil Liberties Union.
New York City's progressive Mayor Bill de Blasio.
Remember, if all these people were around during the O.J. Simpson verdict in 1995 they would have said, 'we have to respect the jury's decision.' Now, they care. Because they don't like Rittenhouse. He's everything they despite. So he's guilty no matter what.
If the left wants to be upset with some, be upset with the Kenosha prosecutors. Their case was riddled with problems calling into question their strategy. The prosecutors were lucky their case wasn't thrown out due to those problems. Problems like questioning Rittenhouse's right to remain silent and giving Rittenhouse's defense lawyers a compressed copy of a drone video, a video they edited.
Let's call this one a win for the Constitution.
