WATCH: Kyle Rittenhouse Speaks After Being Found Not Guilty in Double Murder Trial; Teen Gives His Thoughts About Verdict, Ordeal in Tucker Carlson Special

Kyle Rittenhouse responded to the jury’s verdicts of “not guilty” after his trial during a segment Fox News host Tucker Carlson teased during his Friday evening program.

The teenager, appearing in a teaser clip for a documentary Carlson is putting together, is seen in the back of a vehicle talking to a cameraman after the reading of his verdicts.

“The jury reached the right verdict,” he said. “Self-defense is not illegal, and I believe they came to the correct verdict, and I’m glad that everything went well.”

“It’s been a rough journey, but we made it through it,” Rittenhouse noted further. “We made it through the hard part.”

The Daily Wire added:

The special follows the teenager through the last year after he fatally shot two rioters and injured a third while defending himself against attackers during a Black Lives Matter protest that devolved into a riot. The teen was facing life in prison with no chance at parole.

“It’s the stuff that keeps you up at night, like once you do get to sleep, your dreams are about what happened and you’re waking up in a dark cold sweat,” the teenager told Carlson’s production crew, adding that he relives the deadly Aug. 25, 2020 night “every single day.”

“It’s quite scary actually, because the dreams feel so real. And they’re not the same at all, they’re all different.

“They’re the different scenarios that run through your heard during the day, like, what could have happened,” he said.

“I’m alive, but what could have happened, like what if I wasn’t alive, or what if I did let Mr. Rosenbaum steal my gun?” Rittenhouse continued.

“It’s those types of dreams … almost every outcome is me getting seriously injured or hurt or dead. Those are the dreams I have on a daily basis.”

His defense attorney Mark Richards revealed during his trial that the teen suffers from, and is being treated for, PTSD stemming from the incident.

David Hancock, a spokesman for Kyle Rittenhouse, said Friday that the Rittenhouse family is “relieved” over the not guilty verdict on all counts, but added that there are “no winners” and “nobody is spiking a football.”

He went on to say that Rittenhouse was “defamed” over the past year and noted the two who died when Rittenhouse had to defend himself.

“It’s been a long road, and we believe that this was the right verdict, and we believe that the length of time (the jury was deliberating) was the jury being very careful and reading the instructions and looking over the evidence,” he said.

“There’s no spiking a football,” Hancock said, adding that “two people did lose their lives. There [were] a lot of things that infected this case, like politics, that sent it off the rails really early on. And so, there are no winners.”

“Kyle, now, gets to live his life as a free young man, an innocent young man, which he is,” the spokesman said. “But at the end of the day, I think there are no winners.”
