I sit here this morning amazed at how this country has reacted to the verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial (”Jury finds Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty on all counts in fatal shootings during Kenosha protests,” Nov. 19).
I cannot believe that with a not-guilty verdict this country split right along political party lines. Whether Mr. Rittenhouse was guilty or not was for the jury to decide, not me, and how I feel about it has nothing to do with my political affiliation.
We, as a country, cannot permit this verdict and the death of two people to be governed by political feelings and party affiliation. We are not a country of left and right. In the middle is a body of people with hearts and brains. Maybe it’s time we used them.
