Democrats will decide whether Pelosi passes Biden’s

Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers is asking the public Tuesday to “please respect the Kenosha community and their efforts to come together” as a verdict nears in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial.

“I ask all those who choose to assemble and exercise their First Amendment rights in every community to do so safely and peacefully,” he said in a statement.

“Kenoshans are strong, resilient, and have worked hard to heal and rebuild together over the past year,” Evers added. “Any efforts to sow division and hinder that healing are unwelcome in Kenosha and Wisconsin.”

Protesters speak to Fox News outside the courthouse

As the jury in the Rittenhouse trial began deliberations, Fox News spoke with two protestors outside of the courthouse about what could happen in Kenosha if the jury acquits the 18-year-old of charges that he shot three people during protests in 2020, killing two.

“We hope it won’t cause violence” one protestor leading anti-Rittenhouse chants through a megaphone told Fox News.

Another woman said if there is violence, it will be from Rittenhouse supporters.

“If he’s acquitted, you’re going to have these idiots [Rittenhouse supporters] out here doing stupid s—,” she said.

The same woman said she worried if there was violence following the verdict, minorities would be characterized as responsible.

“Us Black people that live in Kenosha, us Brown people that live in Kenosha are going to be blamed for that.”,51010359.html\

The Kenosha Sheriff’s Department and Police Department, in a joint statement, say at this time “we have no reason to facilitate road closures, enact curfews or ask our communities to modify their daily routines” as a verdict nears in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial.

The departments also say they “understand and recognize the anxiety surrounding the Kyle Rittenhouse trial.”

“There are many questions being asked from our community as well as media outlets,” the statement added. “Our departments have worked together and made coordinated efforts over the last year to improve response capabilities to large scale events.”
