TEMPE, Ariz. – Students at Arizona State University angrily chanted “killer Kyle off our campus” as they marched through school grounds protesting the possibility Kyle Rittenhouse could attend classes there.
“I’m marching because killer Kyle should not be going to this campus,” one student, Farha, told Fox News. “That is White supremacy at its peak and it does not belong at ASU.”
Rittenhouse shot and killed two men and injured a third during unrest (riots) following the August 2020 police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The teen was acquitted of all charges in November.
The Arizona State protesters, led by Students for Socialism ASU, were met with opposition from students who supported Rittenhouse.
Dacy, another student, told Fox News she was marching because she believes in a right to self-defense.
“He’s an American who has committed no crime,” she said. “He contributes to society the way any other American contributes to society who is not imprisoned.”
“We should have zero bias towards him whatsoever, of what school he goes to or where he wants to be educated at, because he was acquitted,” Dacy continued. “He has not committed any crimes, so he is free to go where he wants to go.”
Rittenhouse is not currently enrolled in any Arizona State classes, school officials said this week following demands from students that the administration “withdraw” Rittenhouse from the college.
Professors advised Rittenhouse to withdraw from his non-degree-seeking online classes, but the teen is looking to enroll in classes again, Rittenhouse spokesperson Dave Hancock told Fox News.
