The 18-year-old condemned his former attorneys during an interview with Tucker Carlson.
Black Lives Matter protesters, Second Amendment defenders, and legal experts have all weighed in on the trial and its not guilty verdict. Who is right?
Prior to the not guilty verdict, Rittenhouse maintained his innocence and claimed that he was acting in self-defense.
In 2020, Pressley tweeted that Rittenhouse is a "white supremacist," a tweet that's since come under criticism.
One particularly heated exchange was captured during a CNN interview with the family of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
The civil rights attorney said Rittenhouse "not only escaped accountability but laughed in its face" after a jury acquitted the teen on all charges.
Rittenhouse, who had pleaded not guilty to all five felony counts, was acquitted on every charge.
"The natural issue is that it will precipitate armchair research and table discussion," said Tom Grieve, a Milwaukee lawyer not involved in the case.
Blake said he hopes that regardless of the verdict, people in Kenosha won't riot in response: "It's not going to fix anything."
The jury requested to re-watch a video presented by the prosecution, which sparked a fresh bid from Rittenhouse's attorneys for a mistrial.
Judge Bruce Schroeder said ever since he tried a case with "bad optics" around picking which jurors would deliberate, he has had the "almost universal policy."
The 12-member jury, selected by Kyle Rittenhouse, started deliberation Tuesday to decide if he is guilty or innocent for killing two people and injuring one.
Attorney V. James DeSimone said the prosecution "scored major points" by saying that Rittenhouse didn't need to fire at Joseph Rosenbaum four times if acting in self-defense.
"Other people in this community have been shot seven times and it was found to be ok," defense attorney Mark Richards said. "My client shot someone four times."
Governor Tony Evers said that National Guard members could be deployed to Kenosha if the local law enforcement requests them. The troops are on standby.
The jury in the trial is now able to consider lesser charges that Judge Bruce Schroeder will decide on by Saturday.
The billionaire hedge fund manager says he believes the 18-year-old acted in self-defence, despite the businessman not being a "right winger."
Kenosha County Circuit Judge Bruce Schroeder has been accused of making racist jokes and being biased towards the 18-year-old defendant.
The 18-year-old is accused of murder after killing two people during a Black Lives Matter protest in the highly divisive trial.
Lead prosecutor Thomas Binger angered the judge with his line of questioning, with the defense suggesting he was purposely trying to have case thrown out.
LeBron James was one of those who criticized the 18-year-old after he broke down while on the stand during his homicide trial on Wednesday.
The 18-year-old appeared unable to speak while hyperventilating as he gave evidence in his murder trial.
Legal experts are split on Gaige Grosskreutz's evidence, with one calling it a "catastrophe" for the prosecution and another saying it "actually hurt" the self-defense argument.
Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara said the department has removed regularly scheduled days off in case the verdict "doesn't go positive."
"Re-racking the weapon, in my mind, meant the defendant wasn't accepting my surrender," Grosskreutz, who was shot in the arm, said.
Jason Lackowski testified that Joseph Rosenbaum, one of the people fatally shot, seemed to be a "babbling idiot" but not a real threat to Rittenhouse's safety.
"It is clear that the appearance of bias is present and it would seriously undermine the outcome of the case," said Circuit Judge Bruce Schroder.
"I didn't believe the gunshots were actually his until I got a phone call," Dominick Black testified, "and...he just said, 'I shot somebody, I shot somebody.'"
