(RoyalPatriot.com )- Far-left Democratic Rep. Hakeem Jeffries of New York, who has long advocated prison reform, disgracefully attacked Kyle Rittenhouse during the ongoing murder trial this week and called for him to be locked up for good.
Rittenhouse shot three people who lunged at him and even pointed guns at him during a far-left Antifa riot in Kenosha last year, killing two. The ongoing trial will determine whether Rittenhouse remains in prison, but defense have already confirmed that the one surviving attacker did point a gun at Rittenhouse before he got shot in the arm.
In a tweet, Jeffries responded to the ongoing case with:
“Lock up Kyle Rittenhouse and throw away the key.”
Lock up Kyle Rittenhouse and throw away the key.

It didn’t take long, though, for people to call him out for his previous comments about ending mass incarceration.
In a tweet made in the summer of last year, amidst widespread Democrat-inspired riots, Jeffries said:
“End. Mass. Incarceration. Defund The Prison Industrial Complex.”

But only if the people being locked up are left-wing, right?
Attorneys representing Rittenhouse have argued that he fired his AR-15 in defense after being chased by a mob of violent left-wing extremists – and the only surviving man to be shot by Rittenhouse admitted as much during the trial.
The trial is expected to come to a close this week after jurors were dismissed on Thursday evening.
