“Kyle Rittennhouse can kill without a sliver of doubt & walk free but Julius Jones is in jail for life without the chance for parole after being on death row for 20 years with all types of doubt in his case,” Griffin tweeted to his millions of followers.

“What is Justice?” he added. “God help us.”

NASCAR racer Bubba Wallace tweeted, “Ha, let the boy be black and it would’ve been life…hell he would’ve had his life taken before the bullshit trial.. sad.”

The trial lasted several weeks with closing arguments on Monday. The jury deliberated the case for three days and Friday came back with the verdict of finding Rittenhouse not guilty on all counts.
