Today, Desiree Tims, President and CEO of Innovation Ohio, released the following statement after Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all counts related to three shootings and two deaths in Kenosha, WI:
“We are devastated by today’s decision, but not shocked. As the trial progressed, millions of Americans watched a biased judge and a broken system at work.
“As we try to wrap our minds around another murderer acquitted, we must turn our anger into action — working to elect judges and state legislators who will pass and enforce laws that treat all humans with respect.
“Today I’m thinking of the families who will lose sleep and maybe even hope due to this injustice within our legal system.
“But we cannot let this decision dictate our future. We will all pray with our feet until we can taste the justice our hearts desire.”
