American society is once again split in two, showing serious divisions.

It follows a court jury acquittal of a teenager who shot and killed two protesters in protest against racism.

<법원 서기 / 미국 위스콘신주 커노샤 카운티> “The court jury finds the defendant Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty.”

After that, public opinion in the United States is divided in favor and against, and there is a serious confrontation.

Proponents are supporters of former President Donald Trump and white supremacists, claiming the legitimacy of self-defense.

<마크 맥클로스키 / 작년 8월 인종차별 항의 시위 당시 자경단원> “I’m very happy with this verdict. I think the jury was very brave. They spent a lot of time and careful consideration and came to their verdict.”

However, the protests were fierce and protests took place across the United States.

The opposing party argues that it is an obvious murder that goes beyond the scope of self-defense.

<타비스 그랜트 주교 / 레인보우 푸시 협의체 대표> “We are outraged by this verdict. We will unite on the occasion of the suffering suffered by the verdict. The power of united people will lead to change, and the suffering of people will bring about change. We want justice in this case. .”

The accused, 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, shot and killed two protesters during a racist protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August last year.

President Joe Biden has expressed his principled position that jury verdicts are the US judicial system.

<조 바이든 / 미국 대통령> “I support the verdict of the jury. The jury must work. We must follow this verdict.”
