Protesters angry with Kyle Rittenhouse's acquittal marched in Kenosha on Sunday, accompanied by a Second Amendment-supporting father-daughter combination armed with AR-15s who claimed to be protecting the marchers.
"All we do is provide protection for various parties." While walking with his 16-year-old daughter, Jade, Erick Jordan, 50, told The Post, "We're doing a favor for them."
Jordan claimed he'd been teaching Jade how to use weapons since she was four years old, but she wasn't allowed to use one until she was fourteen. On the night Rittenhouse shot three people, two fatally, amid protests about police conduct, he said they were defending a restaurant and two parking lots in the vicinity.
Although "I probably wouldn't have used my firearm," Jade added, Rittenhouse has claimed he fired in self-defense.
Her father said of the verdict, “It is what it is.
“The jury did their job, and this is America,” he said.
The Jordans said they were invited by march organizers to provide security for the about 75 people that attended. Demonstrators held placards that read, "The Entire System is Guilty!" and "Cops and Fascists Give License to Kill in the United States!"
The Rev. Jesse Jackson was supposed to join the march, but he was unable to do so.
