Harris: Rittenhouse verdict shows there is 'a lot more work to do' on criminal justice equity

“El veredicto realmente habla por sí mismo,” dijo el vicepresidente mientras viajaba en Columbus, Ohio, el viernes siguiente al veredicto. Harris, un abogado y ex fiscal general de California, said she had questions about the verdict.

“Como muchos de ustedes saben, I’ve spent the majority of my career working to make the criminal justice system more equitable, and clearly there’s a lot more to do,” ella dijo.

RITTENHOUSE VERDICT: POLICE DEPARTMENTS BRACING FOR POSSIBLE VIOLENCE AFTER ACQUITTAL

Rittenhouse’s defense lawyers argued that video footage and eyewitness testimony showed Rittenhouse acted in self-defense when he fired on the three rioters pursuing him.

President Biden issued a declaración earlier in the day calling for Americans to be calm while adding he was angered by the ruling.

While the verdict in Kenosha will leave many Americans feeling angry and concerned — myself included — we must acknowledge that the jury has spoken,” Biden dijo. “I ran on a promise to bring Americans together because I believe that what unites us is far greater than what divides us.
