Tensions remain elevatd outside of the Kenosha County Courthouse in Wisconsin, as jurors continue to deliberate in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse.
Several videos have been shared in the last few days showing protestors and counter protestors actively interacting outside of the courthouse.
Though things have remained relatively civil, tensions are beginning to flare as we get closer to the verdict.
BLM protestors and agitators are already actively taking part in the protests, with some even making threats if Kyle is not found guilty.
By all appearances, the case has been a disaster for the prosecution, who have seemingly failed to provide evidence that this wasn’t a clear cut case of self-defense.
Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers has the National Guard on standy if things get out of control.
Tempers have already begun to flare.
BLM agitators are already on the scene as well, making threats against the police.
The situation is bad enough that the Wisconsin governor now has the National Guard on standby.
More on that from Newsweek:
As the case against Kyle Rittenhouse winds down, the Wisconsin National Guard has been activated, the Associated Press reported.
Governor Tony Evers said that National Guard members could be deployed to Kenosha if the local law enforcement requests them. The troops are on standby as the jury begins to hear closing arguments. Newsweek previously received a statement from the governor's office saying that the troops are meant to "support local partners in ensuring public safety in conjunction with hundreds of officers from volunteering law enforcement agencies."
The Wisconsin National Guard told Newsweek that they do not disclose potential plans or procedures of mobilization to the media to protect its members.
This has left many asking:
Why wasn't the National Guard called on when BLM and Antifa were burning Kenosha to the ground last year?
While there are plenty of protestors and agitators actively rooting against Kyle Rittenhouse and making threats if he is found innocent, others have come out in support of the 18-year-old.
