BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The trial of Kyle Rittenhouse was watched by people across the nation, and his verdict of not guilty caused a protest to form in Boston on Saturday. Scott Gilbert with "RefuseFacism.org" started the protest outside Park Street Station when he read a statement made by the father of Anthony Huber, one of the men that was shot to death by Rittenhouse.
"Make no mistake," Gilbert read, "our fight to hold those responsible for Anthony's death accountable continues in full force." Gilbert told WBZ's Suzanne Sausville that he believes the verdict sent a clear message. "It was a green light given by the court system to say its open season to go after anyone who opposes their agenda," said Gilbert.
Boston Mayor Michelle Wu addressed the verdict Friday, she said, "Our country aches for accountability. My heart is with those traumatized by Kenosha & the failures of our justice system."
