Riots broke out in the streets of Kenosha, Wisconsin following the release of cell phone video of Jacob Blake being shot in the back seven times by a police officer. The violence prompted some to take up arms in order to counter the protestors and protect private property. Among those counter-protestors was 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, who, armed with a high-powered rifle, shot and killed two people and seriously wounded another.
Rittenhouse now faces murder charges, but will his lawyers being able to make a case for self-defense? And will the Kenosha police department be able to justify what happened to Jacob Blake? Court TV anchor Michael Ayala joins host Vinnie Politan to discuss it all.
