On Friday, Nov. 19 after more than 26 hours of jury deliberation, defendant Kyle Rittenhouse was exonerated of all charges concerning the deaths of two men and the injury of a third during the Kenosha Wisconsin riots in August 2020.

This is a story about a young man who was a firefighter cadet, a law enforcement cadet, a YMCA lifeguard and a paramedic. A young man that defended his own life while being kicked in the head by a rioter and felon convicted of domestic violence and rape. A young man who defended his own life while being beaten with a skateboard again by a rioter and felon convicted of child sexual assault of five victims between the age of 9 and 11; and by defending his own life once again against a felon and rioter convicted of burglary and multiple weapons charges who was pointing an illegally possessed handgun at his head.

Terry Harper serves as the State Republican Executive Committee Senatorial District 21 Chairman.
