In my opinion, it was a case that never should have darkened the doors of a courtroom. A teenager with a history of being humanitarian used his constitutional rights (First Amendment) to travel freely in America from one city to another to help other people in the summer of 2020. While there to render aid to people and their property, he was targeted and attacked by several grown men with violent criminal histories. He desperately tried to flee confrontation even while exercising his constitutional rights (Second Amendment) to carry a weapon. Yet, the criminals, some of whom were involved in rioting and looting, tried to do him bodily harm. So he defended himself, a God-given right of all human beings.
He was a victim of physical assault crimes, but that didn’t stop the fake mainstream media, Democrats, liberals, anti-gun rights advocates, overzealous law enforcement officers, and misguided prosecutors from making Kyle Rittenhouse a victim for a second time. Using libelous labels against him like “white supremacist” and “mass murderer,” they assumed their hit job and intimidation tactics would prevail to land him in jail, at least for life. But as prayers went up for Kyle (mine included) a slow path toward hope began to unfold for him. Rittenhouse was released on bail, acquired donations and funds to get a formidable legal team, and was assigned to a judge concerned about the Constitution and rule of law.
Though the prosecutors/persecutors tried all kinds of underhanded tricks that can be deemed as prosecutorial misconduct–from withholding evidence to injecting evidence into the trial that was ordered not to be discussed–their efforts failed in the end. The race-baiting of TV talking heads, like MSNBC’s Joy Reid, failed. Rittenhouse, an American hero, has gotten the justice of an acquittal that he deserves. I pray that this ordeal (which would be a huge emotional and psychological burden for a full-grown adult, let alone a teenager) will only serve to make Rittenhouse stronger and that God’s hand will continue to be with him, especially for the salvation of his soul if that hasn’t happened already.
The culmination of this trial has shown me in real time and real life that the Lord still has some good things in store for America. Even when people steal elections to hold positions and to be in places where they don’t legitimately belong (like the interloper in the White House or some people in Congress or certain governors) and even when loud voices scream at those of us who stand for righteousness to join them in calling evil good and good evil, this Rittenhouse case is proof that the fight against the ungodly is worth it in the end.
Thus saith the Lord, In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee… Isaiah 49:8
