Kyle Rittenhouse, who was acquitted of all charges related to the shooting deaths of two people in a racial injustice protest last year, says he supports the Black Lives Matter movement.

"I 'm not a racist; I support the BLM movement, I support the peaceful demonstration," Rittenhouse told Tucker Carlson of Fox News in an interview quote on Monday night.

"And I believe there needs to be a change. I believe there is a lot of misconduct on the part of prosecutors, not just in my case, but in some cases," he said. "And it's amazing to see how much the prosecutor can benefit from someone."

Rittenhouse, 18, was acquitted on Friday on charges related to shooting dead two men and injuring a third during protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, over the shooting death of Jacob Blake, a black man by a white police officer.

Proponents of her case have been working to make the actual transcript of this statement available online.

"I told everyone there, 'I had to do it. I was just attacked.' I was dizzy, vomiting, and I couldn't breathe, ”Rittenhouse said in an interview with Carlson.

“This case is not racist. It had nothing to do with racism. It had to do with the right to self-defense, ”added Rittenhouse.

Rittenhouse's sentencing spa rked protests across the country, with many law-abiding citizens happy. The $ 2 million youth bond was heavily paid by lawmakers last year through a law enforcement fund, and has been praised by right-wing analysts, including Carlson.

After his release from prison on bond, prosecutors said Rittenhouse was spotted at a Wisccin bar displaying a "OK" sign - an act chosen by well-known white-clad groups.

He was also seen drinking alcohol when he was shot by a group of old men singing the Proud Boys song, according to prosecutors who had applied to the court for a restraining order against him.

Rittenhouse's attorney said at the time he was not, and had never been a member of a group that believed they were white.
