DCCC Chairman Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney Statement on Verdict in Kyle Rittenhouse Trial

DCCC Chairman Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney released the following statement after Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all charges

“It’s disgusting and disturbing that someone was able to carry a loaded assault rifle into a protest against the unjust shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man, and take the lives of two people and injure another – and face absolutely no consequences.

“It is clear that our legal system has one set of rules for some Americans, and very different standards for others. People are right to be outraged, and they are right to be outraged at the violence that disproportionately hurts people of color and the legal system that fails to hold the violent accountable.

“We must continue the fight to end police violence against Black Americans and stand up for issues that affirm their humanity, while working to engage the hearts and minds of the American people as we journey forward in the struggle to achieve justice for all.”
