MATT WALSH (HOST): Kyle Rittenhouse should not have felt the need to patrol the streets with a gun. Not because there was no need, but because there should not have been a need. The BLM mobs never should've been allowed to rain terror and destruction for weeks and months on end in response to a police shooting that was completely justified. The police should've done their jobs, they should've been allowed to do their jobs. Those in charge of establishing and enforcing law and order should have done so. They're the ones to blame for all of this, ultimately. So if anyone should be on trial in the Kyle Rittenhouse case, it shouldn't be Kyle Rittenhouse - it should be the mayor of Kenosha and the governor of Wisconsin. They ought to be there standing in chains facing a lifetime in prison for handing their city over to thugs and looters and abandoning their citizens to the violence and chaos that inevitably followed. 

Rittenhouse went to Kenosha that night to do what they would not do. He was attacked and had to defend himself in the process making him a victim in this story. And now his victimhood is compounded by this politically-motivated show trial. So in the end, you might say the left is correct. That it would be an outrage if Kyle Rittenhouse just walks away from all of this a free man. Because he should walk away a free and rich man after suing for malicious prosecution. That would be true justice in this case.
