>> we continue to follow the breaking news earlier today on the kyle rittenhouse verdict where the 18 year-old was found not guilty on all counts. many people feel this was the right decision. others, of course, are still calling for justice upset about what happened to help us understand how the jury may have reached its decision. we have criminal defense attorney, a local attorney, paula canny joining us now live paula. >> interesting case he you know, he says he killed them. we know he killed them. the question was did he have to. >> do you think the prosecutor actually did prove beyond a reasonable doubt that, you know, this was not self-defense. >> that you absolutely nailed why the jury found kyle rittenhouse not guilty. the jury found kyle rittenhouse not guilty but cars in wisconsin. the prosecution has the burden of proving that it was not self-defense and so
the prosecution failed and its burden. i mean, i watched a fair amount of the trial. it. it's horrifying really, you know that a 17 year-old walk down the street openly carrying a firearm that in the state of california is completely illegal. this wouldn't happen like this in the state of california because you can't walk down the street and the state of california carrying an assault rifle with a pistol grip that's fully loaded. but in wisconsin apparently that is the state of the law. the judge on his own motion dismiss the charge a misdemeanor charge that makes said a misdemeanor for a minor, somebody under the age of 18 to carry. all that type of weapon. there was a dispute whether that weapon fell within the purview of the statute and judge schroder on his own motion dismiss that charge. so you know, as long as we have this and going on
between open carry laws and then self-defense. there are going to be these types of difficult situations so, yes, it was it that sort of why it is that way. yeah, i mean, is a very politically polarizing case among other things. but you know, the right has seized upon. >> you know, the end with their own narrative. the left you know, they have theirs. so but the take away from this. what's the message >> this is an extraordinary situation. i mean, if you look at the video that you're you know, there he is. my personal opinion is that this has really upped planned activity by conservatives are i don't know what what do you want to call people conservators people. you want to we're going to stop the protesting in kenosha because they
clearly what 17 year-old has the presence of mind to shoot a bunch of people killed 2 people lose somebody and then walk to the police with his hands up. someday clearly had briefed everybody involved in this that if there's any sort of shooting cooperate with law enforcement. because i mean, i just can't conceive that somebody would have the presence of not mind 2 after they just shot somebody raised their hands and the matter that he did. and self surrender then haven. but. >> teenty-twenty was sort of a year of racial reckoning in this country. among other things we hear you have you know, a white kid who killed a couple white people and injured another white guy. but obviously they were all out there because jacob blake, you know, a young black man was was shot and paralyzed by police shot in the back. so
where does this leave our country from a racial reckoning standpoint tonight. >> well, we're still a mess. i mean, we're still on mass. we're super polarized. so i mean, we have this trial going on right now. in right now says found not guilty. i mean, there are other factors that made him somewhat sympathetic. he was 17, not 18. he made an amazing presentation when he testified he cried. he. >> and gendered cent, but they there is a pretty strong argument that the judge they for the defense. the prosecutor didn't do a good job and so you know, you have all those things in the context of a trial and that little microcosm of the trial that don't necessarily reflect that we're is bad. that weighs a country has i mean, i don't think that i mean, we have a
lot arbery's trial going on where the 3 men basically decided to arrest a person, a black guy who was jogging in an affluent. why area which is another sort of example of vigilantism. so. i mean, i have a hard time believing that those 3 people who will be found not guilty but that again, this is wisconsin law. these were super sort of special facts many of the ways that the prosecution presented the case was super self-defeating to the prosecution. so kick. can i just ask that the take away are we to read from this that that it's ok to show up. >> at a public event at a you a long gun. >> well, in my mind absolutely not. i don't want i get there's a second amendment. i
i went law school. i know what the constitution says, but i also don't think in this day and age that it should be lawful for a 17 year-old to walk down the street with an assault rifle and then basically create the very situation that he then gets to claim self-defense on. as i said in california this would not happen we have different gun laws and we as a as a state don't allow people to around with a loaded assault rifles and interfere and peaceful protests, which is what i think happens years. so you know, wisconsin, they do it. but i think that they will rue the day. the manner in which this case was prosecuted and in terms of the way the judge sort of. handle the case. i mean, again, judge on his own motion i was just going say in this could spend
5 minutes on the judge i unfortunately, we're out of time. but paula, we really appreciate yours. >> i know you're you're going to be back with catherine can at 6 o'clock. so for now that is paula canny. you can find are the losses of rand paul canning. he defense attorney in san mateo have a good night policy at 00:00pm tonight arts, over to you. all right, guys. want check now outside. we've got a lot of clouds around the bay area. still some drizzle. >> along the coastline tonight. i think fog and i'm really kind of settle in this evening. if you're headed out early on this evening. watch out for some thick fog, especially in some of the valleys temperatures right now. we've got a lot of 50's across the board and all that moisture in the atmosphere left over from that weak system coming through and just kind of fall apart as it moved on by now. here's the good news. we get through the night tonight. i think we're looking at some pretty nice weather ahead. i think by tomorrow afternoon, high pressure takes over. we're going to see an offshore wind developing late tonight. so the first part of the evening. a lot of fog. the 2nd half as we get into early tomorrow morning. we're going
to mix out a lot of that fog and bring us some sunshine. and so i think we start lot of sun tomorrow most spots. and then you're looking at 70's inland, 71 degrees and fremont 72 in livermore, unconquered in antioch about 67 degrees in redwood city and 63 degrees downtown san francisco next couple days. we're going to see the return of more sunshine over the weekend dry weather going to hold probably through monday. there is a slight chance of a shower or 2 come tuesday. when watch ellen closely right now thanksgiving day looks dry. all right. thanks, lauren. still to come tonight, vice president kamala harris made history today. >> he was the first woman to hold presidential power for 85 minutes. and you see school simplifying the admissions process. we're going explain what will no l
