people heeding calls, protests with unequal justice and also what they see as lax gun laws. >> thank you. >> of course every state, it's different for new york, different for ohio -- no, every state needs to be the same. >> cnn's adrienne broaddus is in kenosha, wisconsin, with a look back at the trial and local reaction to the verdict. >> we have the jury find the defendant kyle rittenhouse not guilty. >> reporter: the jury in the trial of kyle rittenhouse declaring him not guilty on all five charges. first degree on the death of joseph rosenbaum. >> not guilty reason first degree homicide in the death of anthony huber and in the shooting of gaige grosskreutz, attempted first degree attempted
2:03 am
homicide. >> not guilty. >> reporter: rittenhouse visibly shaken appears to stumble to his chair after the verdict is read. his mother sitting in court relieved. the trial centered on the actions of then 17-year-old kyle rittenhouse the night of august 25th, 2020. and rittenhouse's claims of self-defense after he set out with an ar-15 style gun and joined other armed volunteers to defend a business after protests following the police shooting of jacob blake. the jury in the case, five men and seven women deliberated more than 25 hours over the past four days. requesting to review again some of many videos played in the trial, including graphic video showing the moments leading up to and seconds after the shootings. the verdict coming after a trial that included testimony for more than 30 witnesses. including tearful testimony from the defendant. >> there was -- people right

there. >> reporter: and heated explanation between the judge and lead prosecutor in the case. >> court left the door open. >> for me, not for you! >> reporter: outside the courthouse, divided crowds but overall, a peaceful end to the day's proceedings. jacob blake's uncle reacting to the verdict today, blaming city leaders in kenosha for the events that transpired after the shooting of his nephew, leaving his nephew paralyzed from the waist down. >> they all have blood on their hands. >> reporter: anthony huber's girlfriend reacted to the not guilty verdicts. >> i don't think that any of us who were directly involved in what happened last year on august 25th are really that surprised. we know that the system is a failure. >> reporter: the prosecutor expressing disappointment in a statement asking that all members of the public accept the verdict peacefully. the lead defense attorney speaking for his client after
2:05 am
the verdict was read. >> he has a huge sense of relief for what the jury did to him today. he wishes none of this would have ever happened. >> reporter: and attorneys for two of the men released a statement saying in part while today's verdict may mean justice delayed, it will not mean justice denied. we are committed to uncovering the truth. and moments after the verdict was read, i spoke with the uncle of jacob blake on the steps of the courthouse. he told me he was not surprised by the verdict but did say he was not satisfied. he said the fighting for what he believes is justice continues. adrienne broaddus, cnn, kenosha. >> now, shortly after the decision, rittenhouse appeared in a commercial clip for tucker carlson. rittenhouse appears to be
2:06 am
wearing the same clothes he wore in court and described his relief at the verdict. >> the jury reached the correct verdict, self-defense is not illegal. and i believe they came to the correct verdict and i'm glad that everything went well. and it's been a long journey but we made it through it. >> one of the men kyle rittenhouse shot and killed was anthony huber. he was in the crowd of protesters with his girlfriend at the time. after the verdict, his great aunt told cnn she believes her great nephew sprang into action to prevent future shootings. >> i'm firmly in the camp that he perceived an active shooter and he went to disarm that person. that is the anthony i knew. you know, he was very much a person who would jump into action. that, you know, there were a cub other people who did the same thing. nobody was successful. he lost his life.
2:07 am
i was asked the other day by one of the media people if i thought anthony would do the same thing again. and i think he would, you know. even knowing he lost his life, because he was -- he already knew that joseph had been shot. he wanted to prevent further shootings. >> and u.s. president joe biden is weighing in a statement, the president urged everyone to express their views peacefully and obey the rule of law. adding all the verdict in kenosha will leave many americans feeling angry and concerned myself included we must acknowledge what the jury has spoken. >> and an unexpected from one of rittenhouse's attorneys. >> to me, people will go nuts when i say this, there's too many guns in our society. and that might seem like a
2:08 am
hollow statement coming from me, i do own firearms. i don't conceal carry. i don't want to carry a firearm. i think too many people run around with guns in our society. and i represent a lot of people who have legal conceal carry permits who get into it, they pull the gun and there's problems from there with it. whether under the influence of alcohol, whether they use it to threaten somebody. i wish our society wasn't perceived as being so dangerous that people needed to arm themselves. i'm old enough that i remember you couldn't carry a gun. >> harry litman is a 0 former assistant attorney and host of the podcast talks feds. thanks so much for being here with us to talk about this case. so, based on the arguments and the testimony, are you surprised by the verdict? what do you make of it? >> i wasn't surprised by the
2:09 am
verdict, especially the way it was going in the last week or so. a very important thing to remember is that while rittenhouse was pleading self-defense, it was nevertheless the prosecution's burden. and beyond a reasonable doubt, the biggest burden in the law. the most daunting to show that she wasn't acting in self-defense. the thing that the defense did successfully and the prosecution was not able to quarter, is make it being about the nano second about the actual encounters about the three people that he shot. and when you looked at it that way, it was not surprising that the jury would conclude that wasn't clear beyond a reasonable doubt that he wasn't acting in self-defense. of course, both legally and even socially, the focus could have been on his initial decision to
2:10 am
come into the fray in the first place, that might have led to a so-called duty to retreat. under wisconsin law, things would have been different then. but given the case, the jury received from the judge, i was not surprised. >> that's one of the things that people are taking out of this, right? some say the laws like wisconsin's need to change. the idea of disproving self-defense beyond a reasonable doubt -- >> well, i don't believe that. i think people who are concerned are saying that there are certain gun law yous. there's a certain championing,
2:11 am
vigilantism, that resulted in a kid a 17-year-old kid, showing up at a rally touting an ar-15 and terrible things could happen in that situation. and they did. so, i think the broader argument is more about, say, gun control and vigilantism, and the like, why he was there in the first place. but the prosecution bears this burden, if you're right, kim, that not all states do it that way, but many states do. and they do it for defenses across the board. and, to me, that's just part of what's entailed in being a prosecutor and standing up and arguing for someone's liberty to be taken away. but on the broader social issues, we've got a problem. we've got a serious problem that people are -- not only that the kyle rittenhouse of the world not only think it's okay. but are now, you know, being championed and, apparently, there's a documentary with tucker carlson about to come
2:12 am
out. and, you know, he is a hero. to some. that is a woeful state of affairs. >> yeah, let's hope it doesn't lead to more cases like this. some high-profile cases we'll be analyzing in the days and weeks to come before we do that in the future. harry litman, thank you so much. >> thank you, kim. good to be here. another high-profile murder trial is under way in closing arguments expected monday. it involves the killing of ahmaud arbery, a black man chased down by and killed by two white men while jogging. the two cases have something in common. >> it's very scary for that family. kyle rittenhouse was a vigilante who instigated an encounter.
2:13 am
and that's very similar to what happened there in glynn county in south georgia. ahmaud was misidentified as someone who may have been responsible for petty thefts in the area. but i'm hoping that the jury doesn't take the same course as the rittenhouse jury. >> suspect in the arbery case face felony murder and other charges. just ahead on "cnn newsroom," the cdc weighs in on boosters for all adults. we'll tell you when those shots could start going into arms, just ahead. plus, president biden underwent his first physical exam on friday and temporarily transferred his power to kamala harris. the results of his checkup just ahead. stay with us. ♪ this is how we shine.... at zales.

pharmacies across the u.s. could be busy this weekend as all adults are now eligible for a covid booster. late friday afternoon cdc director dr. rochelle what
2:18 am
lynlw signed off on the shot. cnn's chief medical correspondent dr. sanjay gupta has details on why boosters are so important, especially now. >> with the fda authorizing boosters and the cdc now formally recommending them, boosters are recommended for all adults in the united states. that is something that is now available to people right away. people can go to their pharmacies or doctors' offices. a couple things, first of all even before the most recent recommendations, most adults in the country were eligible for boosters. because if you had a pre-existing condition, such as diabetes, or heart condition or obesity, you were eligible for the booster. what's different, basically, it's a blanket recommendation for all adults across the country. i should point out there was also a second vote for boosters saying people over the age of 50
2:19 am
should get a booster. they say it's recommended. but for people over the age of 50, they strengthen the language saying they should get a booster. let me show you a couple pieces of data really driving this. first of all, we've seen what happened since september here, if you got covid, you ended up in the hospital it was almost somebody who was unvaccinated. if you look at the green line at the bottom, it was pretty flat, but it started to trend up a bit. if you look at the data in israel, going up to november 1, you saw an interesting picture emerge. same story except that most of the people developing severe covid were still unvaccinated. take a look at the middle graph there. close 10 per 100,000 people, people, in fact who were vaccinated were still getting severely ill. but if they got boosted, you can see how significant the numbers dropped. so, a lot of protection for the boosters in terms of severe illness. again, mostly the unvaccinated,
2:20 am
but you did see some waning of that yomoverall efficacy of the vaccines. one thing to point out this is a big discussion at this time because as we go into the winter season one of the big concerns is that if there are more and more people in the hospital, it's not only covid that would be impacted but also illnesses as well. take a look. if you start to see surges here, let's say 75% capacity for icus, that leads to lots of other patients, potentially not being able to get care. and according to the modeling studies, maybe 12,000 excess deaths over the following couple weeks in the country. if icus become completely full, it could lead to 80,000 excess deaths over the next couple of weeks. that's what they're trying to mitigate, that's what they're trying to avoid, and i think that's why these boosters are recommended for all adults. adults should get a booster, and
2:21 am
people over 50 should get a booster. those coming from the fda and cdc. up some of western europe is reeling from some of the highest numbers of covid infections since the pandemic began. the vast majority of those new cases are people who haven't been vaccinated. officials say months of persuasion have failed to get vaccination rates up. so they're taking more drastic measures. austria posed a total lockdown saying every eligible resident must be vaccinated and banning people from public events and venues. >> now, those new restrictions have sparked violent protests, riot police in rotterham
2:22 am
netherlands, 20 people were arrested. for more on this, let's bring in cnn contributor barbie nadeau. barbie, we're seeing extreme measures to fight the spike. what's the latest. >> we're seeing cases, places like germany hit 60,000 or more a day. and areas where the numbers are inching up but still not quite as bad. but what they're trying to do across europe avoid the blanket lockdowns we saw last year. and they shouldn't have to do that because vaccinations are available. what they're trying to do to get the people resisted vaccinated to get the vaccine and those who are vaccinated now to get their booster shots. that seems to be so important and that's what's kind of lagging behind here across europe at the moment, kim. >> and going back sometimes to those violent protests to lockdowns as countries like austria crack down with
2:23 am
mandatory evacuations. how bad are you expecting the pushback to get? >> reporter: well, we're seeing pushback all across europe, because many countries have green passes or health passes, that you need to prove vaccination. you need to have taken a covid test which usually comes at your own expense or prove that you've recovered from covid before you can dine in a restaurant, go to a movie, go to a sporting event. a lot of people don't feel that's fair. we've got that across the block. this afternoon, there's one in rome, not expected to be particularly violent or big, but people don't want to be told what to do. and those that are out there, of course at a superspreader event when they gather to protest against these regulations but across the eurozone now, we haven't seen travel restrictions in the countries or the sort of measures that we saw last year. that's what everyone is trying to avoid. people are tired of this they want to get back to normal and they have vaccinations as a tool to cite that.
2:24 am
>> absolutely. barbie nadeau, thank you. a board certified medical specialist joins me. what difference will this make as we head into the winter? >> as we're talking about the boosters, i think it will make a huge difference as we're already seeing more people are becoming infected who havie been fully vaccinated and are ending up in the hospital. so, we've known for a while that the immunities seems to wane in the pfizer and moderna vaccines after approximately six months. and even earlier in j&j. so getting the booster will bring it back to where it was in the first would thoughts if not higher. >> what do you make of
2:25 am
instructions based on age, that those who are 50 should get a booster and those 18 and older may opt for one? do you think the language should be stronger that everyone should get one? >> yeah, absolutely. absolutely. i thought that today the cdc had clarified that a little bit. in my opinion, eventually, every human who gets vaccinated should get a booster, regardless of age. they're just looking, you know, at the information as it goes along. i thought it was always a little bit lacking, you know, to say that a certain group to get it, because immunity will wane in everybody. and yes, certain groups will be getting sicker, they'll have diseases first because they're at greater risk. but event waelg, i think it's going to be about how long it's been since you had your last vaccine and everybody should get revaccinated. >> if we knew that we would get here eventually by, you know,
2:26 am
basically allowing everybody to get this, why didn't we just do that right away as soon as the first boosters were authorized. i mean, there was so confusion initially so far who should get it based on how old they were, where they lived, what they did for a living, it seemed like a missed opportunity here for clarity. >> i think in retrospect -- by the way, the retrospectoscope is 2 20-20, so looking back, as information comes out, you have to weigh the pros and cons. and you only know that the booster will protected you so i think they're walking a very thin line making sure that above all else, they do no harm in protecting people. so what america is seeing is science as it happens. and it's not as clear as we think. by the time people would get information. just because it's been tested
2:27 am
and retested, and now we're all learning as it happens. and that's why it seems confusing. >> turning now to, you know, younger americans getting their shots for the first time. we're seeing more children going to the hospital. dr. fauci said parents can expect vaccines younger than 5 as early as next spring. so, that's good news for many parents. but in many areas, the vaccination of children is much slower than experts would like. i want from your point of view, how reticent have parents been in terms of getting their kids vaccinated? in seems to be stubborn myths outside there, well meaning parents with genuine concerns who aren't being convinced with the message sent by doctors out there? >> yeah, when it cummomes to children, parents are protective
2:28 am
of children. there's an army of misinformation thrown out there for reason, financial reason, i don't know. some parents say i'm going to wait. and the truth is not a huge percentage of children initially have been getting infected. but there's very little doubt as the general population gets vaccinated what is left for the virus to infect are children. or those people that don't want to get vaccinated. so parents, well-meaning parents, are probably going to wait to make sure that everybody else is safe. and i can understand that, you know. but as a physician who, you know, has been vaccinated and has vaccinated children from early ages, i believe in the safety of vaccines. and in their efficacy far outweighing any potential danger. >> listen, we'll have to leave it there, dr. jorge rodriguez, thank you for being here. >> thank you, kim, happy
2:29 am
thanksgiving. >> you, too. israeli medical experts are keeping a close eye on new cases there as the covid transmission rate increases the r-rate as it's called has risen to one, which in simple terms every ten people with covid will infect another ten. new infections are still early in early autumn. children can start getting vaccinated on tuesday. officials hope that will keep it in check. after months of infighting, president biden finally gets a win on the domestic agenda. we'll find what's in the legislation. and plus, his physical exam. and the president of ethiopia, sounding the alarm. his dire warning for ethiopia. when we return, stay with us. which is a lot. so take care of that heart with lipton.
