“Self-defense is not illegal,” 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse asserted Friday after he was acquitted on all charges against him related to a deadly riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year.
The teenager, appearing in a teaser clip for a documentary from Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, can be seen in the back of a vehicle speaking to a cameraman following the reading of his not guilty verdict.
“The jury reached the right verdict,” he said. “Self-defense is not illegal, and I believe they came to the correct verdict, and I’m glad that everything went well.”
“It’s been a rough journey, but we made it through it,” Rittenhouse added. “We made it through the hard part.”
The special follows the teenager through the last year after he fatally shot two rioters and injured
