Anti-Rittenhouse Protesters March With Armed Father and Daughter (Photos)

On Sunday, a father-daughter combo armed with AR-15s marched outside the Kenosha County Courthouse against the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict, joining thousands of protestors.

Hundreds of people took to the streets in Wisconsin to protest Rittenhouse’s acquittal on all charges, including two counts of homicide, one count of attempted homicide for wounding a third man, and two counts of recklessly endangering safety, after he killed two white men and injured a third during BLM protests last August, claiming self-defense. Following four days of deliberation by the jury, the decision was announced at the Kenosha courthouse on Friday, with Rittenhouse visibly shaking as he fought back tears.

Angry demonstrators came to the streets in Kenosha on Sunday outside the County Courthouse to voice their own indignation in response to the ruling, which has divided the country.

Erick Jordan, 50, and his daughter Jade, 16, were among the masses, saying they were patrolling the event, which drew roughly 75 people, with firearms to safeguard the protestors.

Speaking to the NY Post, Jordan said: ‘We just do security for different groups. We’re doing a favor for them.’

He went on to explain that he and his daughter had been invited by those who had organised the march – which saw some people carrying signs which read ‘the whole system is guilty’ and ‘cops and fascists give license to kill in the USA!’.

The 50-year-old said that he had trained daughter Jade to use firearms from the age of four, but that he had only allowed her to touch a weapon when she reached 14.

The pair said that they had been protecting a restaurant and two parking lots in the area on the night that the Rittenhouse shootings took place.

And commenting on the incident, Jade said she ‘probably wouldn’t have fired my weapon’.­
