Kyle Rittenhouse, on the other side, was accused of homicide, attempted homicide, breaking the curfew, possession of unlicensed and illegal weapons but guess what? The 17-year-old was recently acquitted of all charges. The final hearing took place last month on the 19th. Kyle shot 3 men killing two of them in Kenosha.
