FEATURING JODY ARMOUR - Eighteen year old Kyle Rittenhouse stood trial for his role last August in the shooting deaths of two men, Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, and for injuring a third man named Gaige Grosskreutz in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Rittenhouse had joined counter protesters at a Black Lives Matter action against the police shooting of a Black man named Jacob Blake who was left paralyzed. As of this recording jury deliberations have begun.
