Kyle Rittenhouse Verdict Prompts Calls To Free Black Teen Who Killed Alleged Child Sex Trafficker

Kyle Rittenhouse Verdict Prompts Calls To Free Black Teen Who Killed Alleged Child Sex Trafficker

The court recently decided that Kyle Rittenhouse was not guilty of the charges against him after he shot dead two men and injured a third.

The controversial decision has resulted in people demanding that a black teenager charged with first-degree intentional homicide be set free.

Chrystul Kizer allegedly killed a suspected sex trafficker in 2018.

At the time she faced the charges, she was just 17 years old. She shot a Kenosha man called Randall Volar, who died from his injuries.

The man was 34, and he was being accused of filming underage girls, including Kizer. When he met his death at Kizer's hands, he was being investigated by Kenosha Police for child sex trafficking.

Volar and Kizer met when the girl was just 16. In the following year, he abused her.

She was not the only girl he was abusing, as he was facing charges of abusing other underage girls.

When the teenager shot him, he was out on bail.

According to Kizer, Volar was trying to pin her to the floor when she shot him in the head. The incident took place in 2018.

In addition to shooting him, Chrystul set his house on fire and fled to Milwaukee using his car. As a result, she was charged with arson and first-degree intentional homicide.

The girl spent two years in jail before $400,000 was raised by an advocacy group to help her clear her bond in June 2020.

Kizer appeared in court again in June 2021. At the time, prosecutors were trying to have a ruling by the state District II Court of Appeals overturned. The ruling argued that the teenager could use the same defense victims of sex trafficking use.

All she has to do is prove that she acted as she did because of the trafficking she was going through.

Rittenhouse's team used the same defense during his homicide trial, which ended in an acquittal. He injured Gaige Grosskreutz, 27, and shot dead two other men, Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26.

The incident took place in Kenosha, and Rittenhouse claimed he acted in self-defense and was acquitted of all charges leveled against him.

After the verdict delivered in Rittenhouse's case, people think Kizer, who might end up spending the rest of her life in prison if found guilty of first-degree intentional homicide, deserves to be set free.

However, a trial date has still not been set for her case.
