Kyle Rittenhouse’s family spokesman told CNN’s associate WBBM that the verdict in the trial was “expected”, adding that Rittenhouse and his family are in an unknown location.
“I say it was expected because we know who Kyle is and we know what was in his heart and what was in his head and we know the facts of this case. But of course everyone was really anxious , because at the end of the day, you just end up not knowing what a jury is thinking, “said spokesman David Hancock.
Hancock also said he felt “the jury was thoughtful and they understood the seriousness of this decision.”
“Now the goal will be to ensure Kyle’s safety as he progresses as an 18-year-old young man in college studying to be a nurse,” Hancock said. “Those are his plans going forward.”
As for the Rittenhouse family, Hancock said: “They’re fine right now. They’re in an undisclosed location, and that’s them, they’re a family, and everyone’s just ecstatic.”
Asked about the call for protests after today’s verdict, Hancock said: “The family demands calm. Calls for calm. I mean, this was not an injustice.”
“What I want to say is that this is a focal point, I think, for the country to look at how things have been handled. Things have gone off track in terms of who Kyle is and why he was down here. “It’s never about politics. It’s not about race. It’s about a young man who fled and felt his life was in danger and defended himself,” he added.
