Kamala Harris says she’s ‘disappointed’ in Kyle Rittenhouse verdict

Vice President Kamala Harris, during a Friday visit to Columbus, Ohio, to promote the newly-signed infrastructure law, said she was disappointed in the acquittal in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial. 

During the trip, a jury found Rittenhouse not guilty on all charges after he fatally shot two protesters and injured a third during unrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year over the police shooting of Jacob Blake. 

“I’m disappointed in the verdict, I have to tell you,” Harris said. “I think it speaks for itself. But I also have spent the majority of my career focused on what we need to do to ensure that the criminal justice system is more fair and just, and we still have a lot of work to do.”

Harris touted the infrastructure initiatives before a crowd at Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 189 after touring the facility with Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh. President Joe Biden signed the $1.2 trillion legislation on Monday after months of infighting among Democrats.
