Rittenhouse Acquittal Shows that Justice is Not Equal in America

  1. The judge coddled Rittenhouse every time he took the stand.
  2. Rittenhouse “cried” while on the stand, looking like a little boy.
  3. Rittenhouse’s baby face made him a sympathetic figure.
  4. The Defense kept pushing self-defense for the reason of the shooting (aka those three bad men threatening a boy).
  5. The judge yelled at the prosecution any time the prosecutor went after Rittenhouse’s claims of self-defense
  6. Rittenhouse is young and white.
