So in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse the young man who ended up shoot and killing two people and wounding another during a protest against police brutality in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year is set for closing arguments today. With that in mind Wisconsin’s Governor decided to be a little proactive. He authorized approximately 500 Wisconsin Army National Guard troops to report to Kenosha ahead of the upcoming verdict.

Now in the press release issued on Friday the Governor said “The Kenosha community has been strong, resilient, and has come together through incredibly difficult times these past two years, and that healing is still ongoing.”

“I urge folks who are otherwise not from the area to please respect the community by reconsidering any plans to travel there and encourage those who might choose to assemble and exercise their First Amendment rights to do so safely and peacefully.”
