4:01 pm
looked and it appeared to be me and it said a sofa, a federal officer. and i knew that i had not assaulted a federal officer. ah, live, i'm world wide. this is our team from moscow where it's down. just turn midnight at 3 in the afternoon on friday in wisconsin, which is where we start with our breaking news. this our call written house has been found not guilty on all 5 charges. he faced over the deaths of 2 racial justice protest, as in 2020, the 18 year old was shaking as the jury bred at the verdicts and collapsed to see was acquitted. as to the information gauge price we the jury find the defendant, kylie written kyle each rate health not guilty. i was late to
4:02 pm
help to his feet by one of his attorney's other charges against rittenhouse included 1st degree homicide. and he faced 17 years in jail. had he been found guilty of that, he was charged over an incident to the protest sparks by the police shooting of a black man, a britain house who was 17 at the time claims he was acting in self defense. oh, this is the emotional reaction outside the court house since the verdicts were announced in supporters of britain house cheering the decision of also been significant numbers of black lives matter protested that to chanting justice for the victims tempest grew as the rival groups challenged each other as the verdict sunken ah, with
4:03 pm
her generally so far, the response has been passionate, but peaceful. corresponded john hardy, with outside the kolton, kosher in wisconsin, as the verdicts were announced. well, a stunning turn of events. certainly huh. not guilty on all counts. let, let me step out of the way and i'll set the scene for you. so when the verdict was reached, when it was handed down that there were there, you could say a huge crowd has gathered on the steps of the court house. and a cheer went up, a lot of people who were here supporting kyle rittenhouse. there are also those who have been here throughout this trial and throughout the deliberations as we've
4:04 pm
shown you and shown the viewers who were against coll rittenhouse who were pushing for a for a guilty verdict at they are talking to the media. they're obviously upset about it, but we're hearing a lot of people driving by honking horns, saying, you know, yeah. j. kyle: so obviously a tenant, like i said, a study turn of events. after 20 more than 23 hours of deliberations, the jury handed down his verdict. we weren't sure which way was going to go there. the, you know, there was reports last night that one of the jury members took home. the 36 pages of jury instructions that kinda caught everybody by surprise. we didn't expect that . it wasn't clear whether that there was an indication either way, how it was going to go. also, throughout the deliberations a jury in the beginning, when it 1st started, asked for several pages of jury instruction, specifically having to deal with self defense having to do with provocation having to do with criminal intent to kill. there was then the drama,
4:05 pm
the altercation that happened here outside the court house between you know, doing protesters resulting in 2 people actually being arrested in one of whom was charged with assault and battery. and then there was more drama as if it wasn't dramatic enough with an m s. and b. c reporter, reportedly following, trailing behind the jury van. ah. 7 a whether they were trying to get commenter or follow the jury to find out where the jury was being sequester to try to get live interviews after the verdict was handed down. remains the same. but that was a, a serious matter. jed rufe, schraner. 6 band m s nbc and us nbc from being in the courthouse throughout the rest of the proceedings. so now the here now on the verdict is handed down as we're, we're approaching the week and we weren't sure even if a jury was going to deliberate through the weekend and, and going until possibly next week into the holiday weekend. thanksgiving. here in the united states, what was gonna happen then, but as we know not guilty on all counts, a lot of people are showing up. i think that's gonna be basically what we're going
4:06 pm
to see all day. and then it's a question of in line i was talking about this. what happens now on the streets of canoga? will there be fall out? will there be protests from demonstrators who have been here, who are upset about the verdict about the not guilty verdict on all counts? will we see, you know, wide spread demonstrations? protest could get volatile. that's why the governor of wisconsin has caught up on stand by 500 national guard troops. if something breaks out here in kenosha or the rest of the state for that matter to those troops would assist local law enforcement. we're not seeing anything like that at this point. things are com, obviously they're celebration. there's people that are happy. there's people that are upset. we're going to continue to see that. but we're, you know, what happens if, if that remains the case if it remains peaceful, really raised the same, but a stunning turn of events not guilty on all counts. the cases attracted massive
4:07 pm
media retention with the child deeply popularizing public opinion and opinions of also been heavily divided on social media with both the hash tags pray for kyle and white privilege company trending on twitter. sadly, for the past few hours, when i get some more thoughts on this, now the executive director of the rumpled institute for peace and prosperity dining mcadams. welcome back to wealthy. i guess it's hard to imagine whatever the verdicts in this trial they were never going to please every one were they. what were your thoughts when you heard that he'd been acquitted on old 5 charges? well, i would say justice was served with justice wasn't sir, because there never should have been a trial that was very obvious from beginning with the video footage that there was no trial. there was no case against retina. how's the prosecutors knew? there was no case and that's why they, it such an awful job. but there was certainly speculation that they were trying to get a mis trial by doing such a horrible case of that. so no justice wasn't sir, because a year of this kid's life was ruined. but at least at the end, the right verdict was read out. what about the presidential reaction moment,
4:08 pm
joe biden on this? because when the verdicts were released, we had president biden saying, accept the written house, jury decision trust the system, but then barely an hour later, the white house effectively calling the jury's decision. a disappointment, which is likely to spare on people who are unhappy at this these verdicts. well, the president himself was a disappointment. it was a year ago that he claimed this young man was a white supremacist with 0. you evidence that that was the case and the president should be sued by him. or just as if every news outlet in the us that called him a white supremacist should also be sued. my guess is she's going to be a multi millionaire, maybe even a sent a millionaire when this is over and he deserves every penny of us to talk to you. and what about the hash tag? so it was saying on line, i suppose, i suppose twitter is never going to be an arbiter of com response, said opinion, and do you think that there is going to be any trouble this weekend? luckily that hasn't been any significant trouble sofa despite law enforcement being
4:09 pm
put on stand by noticed in wisconsin, but elsewhere to well, hopefully there won't be any violence is never the answer. and unfortunately, oh, what you were called a racial protest in kenosha a year ago was actually a riot that costs $50000000.00 of damage. and it hurt a lot of people were hurt very badly by the so called protestors who were violent. you know, the mainstream media coverage of this trial has been abysmal. if, if you, if you didn't know better and you watch mainstream media, you'd believe that this white supremacist killed 2 killed a couple of black kids for fun. obviously, that wasn't the case. there are 3 white people who are killed or 2 white people that were killed and want was insured. the was mainstream mediate. there's no, there's no wonder why people absolutely have 0 confidence in it. it's not unusual full, the media in the united states to go full on a crime story on cases says divisive polarizing and hyper have at the outright lied for a year. about this case. they presented incorrect information and they led people
4:10 pm
to believe things that simply weren't true about the case. if, if this was in the u. k though they wouldn't be able to do any reporting on it. they can literally only say what was setting cold on the day of each day of the proceedings. do you think there should be red lines for the media in terms how they cover such trials, especially when there's such emotional interest on this? well, the mainstream media praise on this emotional interests are desperate for clicks. they're desperate for eyes and they crossed the line repeatedly. the mainstream media has behaved abysmally including the m s n b c reporter following a jerry bus. i mean, there should be some sanctions on the media or the way they behaved. absolutely, but there already are sanctions because people just turn it off. do you think the judge has got anything to answer in this because he's been accused of racism through this. he has received death threats as well. of course, why would you assess his behavior during the trotty, sadly polarized opinion by saying that the victims, sorry, that the dead men should perhaps not be described as victims will. alternately, they weren't. obviously,
4:11 pm
the jury found them not to thems. and we found throughout the trial that they weren't victims, they had a gun in written houses face the 2nd one did when was shot, the other one reached for the gun when he was shot. both clearly self defense. so the clearly not victims aggressors is what they were. do think the written have trial would have attracted this much media attention? had the incident not happened, that black lives matter protest, it wasn't a protest, it was a riot. $50000000.00 of damage and many, many people were seriously hurt. you need to get the terms right. it was not a protest, it was a riot. the media likes to fan the flames of hatred. they like to say that everything is racism. they've done it for a year with written house, and there's actually no evidence in fact at all that he has a braces bone in his body. but unfortunately, the cheap thrills that the media gets at the expense of americans. polarizing americans turning american against american and they're the ones that are, that are guilty and i hope they're punished in civil court for what they've done. i suppose, even though that these 5 verdicts unequivocal they all agree not guilty on all 5
4:12 pm
counts. the problem is that it does raise more questions and answers for a lot of people who will still the, even the most basic level, say that for the families of the to deadman. there is no justice as yet who has screw around and find out. i mean, if you pull a gun on someone who has a gun, you risk getting shot, that's why it's not a good idea to do that. if you grab it someone's gun. when they're holding it in self defense, you stand the risk of getting shot. so the good advice for smart people is don't do stupid things and you won't get hurt. do you think it also racism? because it's not just been a politically divisive trial and the racially divided trial that we've talked about a lot, but also with raise questions about america's gun laws. again, about using an assault rifle is a defensive weapon. well, if he did not, if he was not armed, he would have been dead and he is the victim. he was on someone's property with their permission to protect their property against rioters who are intent on burning it down. self defense is, is, is,
4:13 pm
is obviously whatever what it was and if he wasn't armed, he would have been dead because the bad guys were armed as ever. thanks for your thoughts on this tiny, mcadams, executive director at the rome pull piece institute, have a great weekend. thank you. onto all of the headline news now, following a surgeon new covey cases in australia, the chancellor has announced a nationwide lockdown for at least 10 days starting from this coming monday. as what is looming vaccination mandate from next february coming the 1st european country demanding obligatory vaccinations. neighboring germany is also considering similar measures. all europe correspond. peter oliver reports next from austria, alexander shalon, berkeley, austria and chancellor saying that the whole country will be going into a new lock down for monday at a last at least 10 days. it could well last until the 13th of december. after that 6 ended, though only the own vaccinated will remain in the lock down. what it means though, is that unless you are going to school because education will remain open or you
4:14 pm
are taking somebody to school, then you are going to have to remain in your home unless you're going out to get food, your seeking medical assistance, or you're going for some exercise in your local area from the 1st of february, austria will become the 1st year a p and country to make vaccination mandatory. those people that don't fit into a criteria of either being pregnant or having a legitimate medical reason for not getting a vaccine. we'll have to get one. he said that it wasn't something he wanted to announce, but the fact is that it's just not being the vaccine take up in the country to this point. them to many political forces in this country have campaigned against vaccination. the consequences of this r, overfilled intensive care units, and enormous human suffering. this decision does not come easily to us because none of us enjoys bringing in meshes that puts them in on freedom. this decision was
4:15 pm
necessary because too many a mongers have acted without solidarity. there's also concerns about the health care system in germany just over the border. we heard on friday from the president of the robert cock institute, that's germany's public health authority, saying that to g isn't working at the moment now to g. is the system by which are only if you've got a, a proof of vaccination or you've got proof that you've recovered from covert in the last 6 months that you can have access to things like bars, restaurants and it's something more needs to be done. he didn't say lockdown that was noticeably missing from the, the press conference that was given. but looking at what's happened here in austria, it does seem like not maybe the direction germany is heading. particularly when you take into account what yen spawn, the health minister in berlin had to say, i know we are in a position that we can't exclude anything. we are in a national emergency. vaccinations won't be enough at this point to stop the spread
4:16 pm
of coven 19 controls, i needed to stop. the rise in covered 1000 cases. for the situation is increasingly bonds in some parts of germany. if we look in the states of bavaria and germany south, we're seeing intensive care. busy beds there in extremely short supply. in fact, some patients are already being taken in by hospitals in italy that have more capacity. right now, a situation that is, is developing and it's not developing in the right way or certainly not in the way we would like to see at the moment across germany, or for that matter here in austria, where i'm speaking to you from our company and discuss these tougher covered restrictions with a panel of medical and social science expert impression i get is these are serious panic measures by the politicians. and i not belittling the sharp rise in case numbers in austria. but my, my response to the politicians is where were you when your case numbers was
4:17 pm
slightly high, high i still am going up the time to i always early and extensively. they need to stop being. i react cheap and acting on impulse because that's the worst time to my decisions. and i think that's the problem that we've got since the pandemic and began to fall tissues. but i mean, if i look at how additions have operated throughout europe, and here in the u. k, there was a lot of let the politicians do what they want. they didn't follow some of the mandates. they weren't wearing masks when they were supposed to peer masks, and then they bowed to the pressures of business in capitalism and left it restrictions very early in coalition honey, real pressure because life has to go on, people have to earn a living. the economy has to keep taking on at some point a suppose the politicians because they've got their reputations on the line as well. are going to say, well we, we're, we're trying to ease up. we're trying to move forward the car. when can i? this is a failure of governance, this is a prayer all the right processes. so the scientists was saying,
4:18 pm
i early are extensively and you will controlling then the economy is trashed and they say you how people are trashing the economy. what they do not want to accept is the economy is trashed because you messed up. i was an elderly and impatient or for that reason, could be susceptible to coven, where he could kill me. i would like to know that the health care professional that i've entrusted my life to is not going to without knowing it being on vaccinated, pos on the virus to me, but again, it goes. but even if you've been vaccinated, could you still pass it on? i don't know, i don't think he's quite i am specifically am to choose a section of the med confession to site. you know that we should be mandatory law. how are you? how is it mandatory when there's so much confusion going on? because a lot of people you're a goes to should know because it works for the medical profession. i suppose we all the know medics look to you to do the best practice to do the best possible thing.
4:19 pm
we do do the best thing for our patients, but the problem is, the guidance that we get given change is week by week is to confusion just as soon as we get you start one set of new wrong with a new policy. something else comes out which contradicts that how you're going to persuade the and persuaded so far that haven't been vaccinated, that it's the only way forward, the medic say, it's easier than repaying. so 1st thing you got to do is advise, inform, educate, reassure. second thing, you have to get that message out and that message is very clear to management cove . it, it has to be a multi layered operation. it was never a one silver bullet solution. it does not work with just the vaccines. so the multi layered approach is as follows, where your mosque, where a good quality mosque very properly get yourself immunized, get yourself immunized against seasonal influenza. finally have good ventilation and finally, finally, i promise you, good times will occur. good times will come. but what we've got to do is learn the
4:20 pm
1st law though that's the problem. that's why the politicians of flounder now. well, i know, but they messed it up. if they had acted a lot earlier, the world would have been in a better place. so many things to worry about gas prices going up cove, it seems to be coming back for a 5th time. and it still getting mixed messages from the politicians. what's gonna happen is we had into a new year, maybe go into a 6th or 7th wave of this. well, i think there are 2 things i really want us to think about here. and as we try to push back to normal, 1st off, normal, wasn't that great for everybody. and so i know that all these things we're talking about are important. we want to get on with our lives. normal wasn't great for experiencing homelessness, homo, it wasn't brief experiencing racism. these are things that are continuing to exist . so if we go back to normal we, we need to be careful not to go back to, to what were some sort of nostalgia. and i also think we need employers at universities. big, big places there, bring in lots of people into city centers to remember that there's going to be
4:21 pm
a social, a return here that people are going to have some anxieties. so we need to remember 2 things. remember, nostalgia is not always a good thing. normal wasn't last that go back to normal number one. and number 2, we need some time an american wanted by the f. b i to taking part in the capitol hill. riot has trouble to bella roost and is seeking asylum. the other newman faces charges of violent entry on capital grounds and the sultan law enforcement officials during the events of january. the 6th. however, what he doesn't deny is presence that that day he claims that the accusations against him are unfounded. we also have a newman how he got into bruce. i knew that i couldn't cross the border of through the normal border guards because i would be arrested and, and delivered to the americans as a, as a gift for the upcoming summit. and i found a national forest on a map. but it was a swamp with snakes and wild boars and more spider thing. you can imagine i crossed
4:22 pm
there and it was more adventurous than i anticipated. well, it was an unusual conversation to have, you know, with an american who is now seeking political asylum in an eastern european nation that many will have trouble pinpointing on the map. but according to mister newman, he did not flee the united states. his departure had nothing to do with the criminal case against him. apparently he found himself on a business trip in europe. and essentially, i then only later, he made a decision to cross the border into belarus and, you know, try and seek political asylum. them. he got on the f b, i most wanted list over his involvement in the january. the 6th protest in washington, d. c. which ended up you with the, you know, trump support is storming the capital. according to mister newman, he himself of he believes he did nothing wrong. he did nothing illegal. i should say in a conversation with me, he refused to confirm or deny though, the fact that he might have crossed you know the threshold and found himself inside
4:23 pm
. ah, the capital, but also at the same time as he believes that he did nothing illegal. i, he vehemently refuted the claims that he, for example, attacked a police officer. he told me that he regretted doing many things on that day. it was quite interesting to hear his account of events during that day, as he also shed some light on the you know, a while somewhat popular theory that they were well. agents provocateurs, people, agitators who were provoking protest as you know, to do. illegal things have a listen. it was brought to my attention that i might be on that list. and i looked and i peered, be me. and it said a sulfur federal officer. and i knew that i had not assaulted a federal officer. number one, i promised somebody that i would stand back in the crowd and i didn't hold that promise. um, that's the 1st thing i regret. there was a man who came up in the beginning ah, when i, when i got there and he broke
4:24 pm
a window with a hammer. but then he walked away and down down the steps and away somewhere else. and then he came back about 15 minutes later. and broke away all the glass so that it was a clean way to enter and then gestured to us to enter. well, it has to be said that there is no solid proof to back any of such claims. and this story, it is full of twist, is another one mister newman has originally from california, you know, america's blue estate, and he is a registered democrat on top of that. what prompted him to give his vote to trump? back in 2016 was. according to mister newman, the way the d and c treated the bernie sanders campaign. he told me that essentially he believes that the dnc stripped a bernie sand as of a fair chance that you know, representing being the main runner of the party, back in 2016. and when he saw all the negativity going, the trump way old, the hate he just, he just, you know, gave a protest vote it was,
4:25 pm
it was like that. so that's why he initially decided to go and vote for donald trump back in 2016. last year he told me he voted consciously that he ceased. he cited things like economy or the fact that donald trump did not stop any new was. this is something that he cited as reason why he backed trump and living in california, you know, being a pro crump guy. it is difficult, he told me, and i had some serious speak easy vibes going off, how he described the lifestyle of him and those who thinks like him, hemorrhage, a democrat. i'm not a republican. there was a walls of hate against trump, saying that he was insane saying that he was crazy saying all these things and i disapprove of that so much. but i voted for trump in 2016. the trump supporters in california don't the ones that i knew of don't really congregate and,
4:26 pm
and you, everybody's on the down low about it. you know, every now and then somebody comes to me secretly, quietly. everything has to be secretive, otherwise you're socially ostracize me. so it does sound a little bit like prohibition except this time in a political way. now mr. newman is also very concerned about his family, which is back home, back in california. and he hopes that some day he will be able to see them again in california. as a free man, but so far he sees the chances of that happening as quite slim. moscow has heavily criticized nato, after the head of the military block said that it may move nuclear weapons closer to brushes, boulders, the russian foreign ministry wants to the hostile actions completely contradict the criminal efforts to improve relations in the brussels. they've conclusively lost all connection with reality. instead of responding to russia, cool to de escalate tensions in europe, the main message from the alliance is that a nuclear terms, nature will move even closer to the borders of our country. well,
4:27 pm
the thing is that always any kind of nato expansion to the east towards rushes borders, always act like a huge red rag to a ball for moscow. and of course, if we're talking about something as serious as nukes, we should have expected the fury from the bowl or the bear, i should say, to be even stronger. this is why the reaction from russian diplomats to the latest comments by nato's number one boss was very quick. you don't losing connection with reality. that is a very serious accusation. and here's why the government in moscow is making it. it's because it doesn't want the fundamentals of the european security balance to be undermined in any possible way. if you really said that it means that the needs are for which the thick, 3, generally the collective voice, the russian nato founding act no longer exists. of this document, enjoying the alliance is fundamental obligations for european security,
4:28 pm
including those in the nuclear field. install of arg was in the midst of some very important meetings, including one with outgoing german chancellor anglo merkel. when he made these latest comments, for now us nuclear bombs are stationed on german soil and in emergency situations. they can also be carried by german military dress, but the distance is still from germany. borders to russian borders is quite significant. if berlin decides to give up the agreement to have us nuclear weapons on his territory, then natal boss is saying they're ready to move them further east and then they'll be found right on rushes doorstep. i expected germany will continued to be part of nuclear sharing because it is so important for the whole of europe. and it's a multilateral framework. dual turner to, to natal, nuclear sharing is different kinds of bilateral arrangements. germany can of course
4:29 pm
decide whether there will be a nuclear weapons in your country. but, but, but, but alternative is that we easily end up with nuclear weapons in all the countries in europe also to the east of germany. so the vision from this side of the barricade, the message to nato from moscow has been very clear. you really do have to choose whether you want to escalate the attentions even further. and the possibly even contributes to a new arms race. or you want to maintain the relative stability in nuclear security in europe. and so saying out loud that the alliance is ready to move the nukes that close to the rushing water definitely isn't something that is going to help collect, show you live. what's happening in the city of rotterdam in the netherlands, i major port city the riot police making arrests in the aftermath of what appears to be some rioting at a protest against kobe restrictions in the country. we did say little earlier on
4:30 pm
was damage in the straits and a number of those police vans at the moment. of course the netherlands is subject to a partial lockdown to begin the 1st western country to introduce a partial lockdown since the summer. and that's for 3 weeks at just over a week into that right now. there's also the chance that the netherlands could further restrict cov, it passes at the moment they have what's called a 3 jesus. and which means that a 3 qualifying criteria to get a coping pass be in vaccination antibodies and having recovered from a task that may, i, dear, is there restrict that to what's called a to g system. that by making it more difficult to get those passes. but there certainly seems to been some trouble in the center of rotterdam on friday night as a result of the restrictions that have been imposed in the netherlands. and the rest is now being made by right. some of the saw a little earlier on appears to have now dissipated, but we will keep those cameras trained. we'll keep all right on those cameras for you. should anything change? explain a bit more for you in our next bulletin, which is in lesson half an hour life from moscow. this is our t.
