This verdict makes me feel sorry for Kyle Rittenhouse

I had a neighbor who ran over a child with his truck. It was purely an accident. The child died. The whole neighborhood was devastated.

My neighbor never drove again. His truck sat on flat tires out back rusting out. He ended up losing his job as a construction foreman and worked odd jobs to make ends meet. He looked sad, fragile.
