Wisconsin Lawmakers React To Rittenhouse Acquittal

Reactions from Wisconsin lawmakers are mixed following the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse.

Republican Senator Ron Johnson says justice was served and that he hopes that Kenosha will remain peaceful, a message shared by Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, who says people should accept a legal verdict.

Democrat Senator Tammy Baldwin says lawmakers need to take steps to prevent this sort of shooting from taking place again, and Madison Mayor Satya Rhodes Conway says the verdict only perpetuates distrust in the legal system.

The National Guard has already been activated in case new protests begin.
