Rittenhouse Trial: Protesters and Supporters Gathering Outside Kenosha Court as Jury Deliberates (VIDEOS)

Protesters began gathering outside the Kenosha courthouse on Tuesday afternoon as the jury entered deliberations in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial.

There were both supporters of Rittenhouse and leftist activists who believe that he should be found guilty gathered outside the building.

At one point, the situation became tense as a supporter of Rittenhouse chanted “Black Lives Matter for pedophiles,” referencing Joseph Rosenbaum’s sex offender status for molesting multiple young boys.

The 12 jurors selected to decide the teenager’s fate include seven women and five men.

Approximately 45 minutes into their deliberations, jurors requested 11 copies of the jury instructions, specifically the portions that apply to self defense.

The eighteen year old is facing first-degree reckless homicide, first-degree intentional homicide, attempted first-degree intentional homicide and two counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety for shooting three people, two of them fatally, during a riot in Kenosha last August.

Rittenhouse maintains that he had been acting in self defense, as he was in imminent danger.
