Several downstate Illinois lawmakers are blasting Gov. J.B. Pritzker for his comments following the Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty verdicts.
A Wisconsin jury acquitted the 18-year-old from Antioch, Illinois, on charges stemming from killing two men and wounding another during unrest last year, finding he acted in self-defense.
Pritzker issued a statement following the not guilty verdicts.
“Carrying a loaded gun into a community 20 miles from your home and shooting unarmed citizens is fundamentally wrong. It’s a tragedy that the court could not acknowledge that basic fact.”
