>> now to our top story at 06:30pm tonight the verdict in the trial of kyle rittenhouse. a jury found him not guilty on all counts. and to help us understand how the jury might have reached that decision criminal defense attorney paula canny, thank you, paula, for your time. the prosecutors was a pretty high bar. they had to disprove self-defense beyond a reasonable doubt. what was your reaction. >> it's fairly predictable result timing. kyle rittenhouse testified. i did it in self-defense under wisconsin law. the da's office had the burden of proving some
part you know, saying that something in that self-defense defense failed and the prosecution failed to meet its burden. >> so there is no recourse. this is over. as far as a criminal case is concerned because he was found not guilty. there's nothing that can be appealed. this is the end of it. is that how it works. >> i mean, basically under state law when there's an acquittal the prosecution doesn't have the right to appeal. the one issue could have been that the judge dismissed the misdemeanor firearm charge. but i don't think that the prosecution has the right to appeal that dismissal. it's a highly technical thing and it's only a misdemeanor. so no, this is it a less somebody could think of some federal charges to bring against him. but i don't think that that i don't think there's a federal jurisdictional basis. so, yes, it's over. >> paula, you mentioned the his behavior considered an
orthodox. some people thought he seemed to be signaling some empathy for the defendant. what did you think of his behavior. >> i think he did say and to say for the defendant, i thought it was an interesting thing. i think that the judge is dismissing the misdemeanor charge right before it was the case was going to be. our gut is a pretty big signal that he was sympathetic to the defense because i think it has to be a misdemeanor for a 17 year-old to carry and 8 k 47 in a public place under wisconsin law. i mean, under california law and adult isn't allowed to carry a gun that nature loaded in a public one of the other things that's important to think about is the tension between open carry laws and self-defense. you know, so in
california, this would happen. but kuz a 17 year-old can't walk down the street with the loaded. a case 47 and interfere with a peaceful protest. >> so again, the criminal side is over. but what do you think could happen as far as civil lawsuits are concerned. >> well, i suppose each of the families of the people that kyle rittenhouse shot could file a lawsuit against him. i mean, he raised more than 2 million dollars for his legal defense fund. i'm not sure if kyle has any of that money or it all went to the lawyers who clearly did a great job for him. but kuz he's, you know, walking away scot-free. but in terms of it could use or the other people that he was with to the person who bought the gun. maybe. i mean, the thing that i do find remarkable about this case is the prosecution didn't do a very good job. i mean, the
prosecution did have a burden to disprove one of the elements of self-defense and what i find remarkable is what 17 year-old knows, too, and drop weapon, basic land put their hands up and surrendered to the left unless they receive instruction on what to do after they've shot somebody. it will play. i just i just think it's remarkable that the prosecution didn't do a better job cross examine him well before get back to that, what do you mean? who are you suggesting more. what are you suggesting in terms of >> he was instructed to behave the way he did it. well, believe that that that that this was that there was a lot of discussion. >> he wasn't the only digital and see that went kenosha to stop the protesters. so, you know, all of the vigilante
groups talk along one another and i'm sure he read their if you're involved in a shooting, make sure you. >> cooperate with the police. be friendly to the police because again, this whole reaction was because the a police officer and shot a black man in kenosha. so it's a super complicated. they even though he's arguably just committed a crime. he was arguably committing a crime to defend the police. so it's just complicated. and again, it just goes backstage areas. you know open carry. i'm glad i live in california where you can oakland like carry a loaded, a k 47 and walk down the street all about 35 minutes ago protest was scheduled to get underway in to protest this verdict. >> and i'm just wondering how you think in the future we might see. are we going to see
more feeling emboldened to carry guns to stand up to people that they >> you know, they just don't agree with. >> it's hard to predict what this verdict mean. this was an extraordinary back situation that was a 17 year-old to actually testify pretty compellingly and somewhat sympathetically, a super kind of an odd sort of. and on judge and and in theory or prosecution. so i don't know any average case the circumstances could put to gather that many weird things to have a result like a not guilty in this case. i mean, now, i certainly hope not. but we're going to have to calm us a society. what we're going to do about our gun laws and do we want people to openly carry guns loaded guns in public places and some states think it's ok.
>> paula, just quickly kyle rittenhouse did obviously, as you said, testify was how much of a factor might that have been in the jury decision. i think it was a really compelling factor. >> he raise the specter. i did this because i was scared out of my mind. that's why i did. and that is self-defense and ironically, some of the evidence that the prosecution presented itself sort of underscored that they were coming after him. you know, in a way. so he was believed by the jury. i don't think, though, that we should think of. this is a vindication of what he did was right. i think that we should look at that. the prosecution failed to meet its burden to disprove an element of self-defense. so i i don't think it's a vindication all. and again, it was orchestrating his sat behind in the entire trial and
everybody knew what was is longer. so i think that there is somewhat of a scent that big factor and he was 17 in california. it's not necessarily true that he would have been prosecuted as an adult. so there are all these weird fact. what's going to be interesting to see what happens with the rest of his life. he's only 18 and now he's marked forever. >> by this trial. so, you know, he's he's got a lot of things ahead of them. that could be good or bad or or whatever is going to fade from views are going to be a spokesperson. we're going to see what happens baller at a time. thanks for your time. we appreciate it. and we'll see you next time. thank you. >> by 5 thank you. coming up for the first time in a long time san jose residents will have to pay more for their water. we'll have details on the new surcharge. but first. >> cash chaos looked like something out of a movie. the mad dash to scoop up some money scattered
