Kyle Rittenhouse: Calls for calm after US teen cleared of murder

No.965900 ViewReplyOriginalReport
As a Portlander, I don't recall seeing (or even hearing) about any riots this time.
>There have been calls for calm in the US after a teenager who shot dead two people during racial unrest last year was cleared of all charges.

>Kyle Rittenhouse, 18, argued he was acting in self-defence when he shot the men and injured a third in Wisconsin.

>The verdict on Friday, which followed a high-profile trial that divided the US, sparked protests in some cities.

>But politicians, including President Joe Biden, and families of the victims have urged restraint.

>"What we need right now is justice, not more violence," lawyers for the family of Gaige Grosskreutz, who was shot and injured by Mr Rittenhouse, said in a statement.

>"I urge everyone to express their views peacefully, consistent with the rule of law," Mr Biden told reporters outside the White House.

>Despite the calls for calm, a riot was declared by police in the city of Portland, Oregon, on Friday evening as some 200 people broke windows and threw objects.

>There were also protests in Chicago and New York, but they were relatively low-key compared to the widespread civil unrest that the US had seen previously.
