After reviewing the continued homicide trial of Ahmaud Arbery with chief authorized analyst Dan Abrams, co-anchor Whit Johnson lamented that Rittenhouse was “discovered not responsible on all costs within the taking pictures deaths of two males throughout a protest in Wisconsin.” He puzzled, “However what occurs subsequent now,” and “might there be civil circumstances?

What he failed to say is that with the jury discovering him harmless and that he acted legally in defending himself, the likeliness of the civil circumstances being profitable was minimal.
