“Remember those names,” wrote activist Chloe Tsila on Twitter Tuesday after French prosecutors announced what she called “the closest thing to justice” being served.

What Tsila, a U.K. national who’s studying France, was referring to were the victims of the January 2015 attacks on the Charlie Hebdo magazine, on a policewoman, and on a kosher supermarket.

The series of terror attacks in Paris is known as the “Three Days of Terror.” There were 17 innocent lives taken over that 3-day-period by radical Islamist terrorists.

The terrorists’ initial motive to attack the magazine headquarters was based on its caricatures of Muhammad. However, their radical jihad pursuit didn’t stop there and targeted both Jews and law enforcement.

According to the French media, prosecutors announced possible “heavy penalties” and lengthy sentences for the 14 suspects accused, 3 of which will be tried in absentia in a packed courtroom on Tuesday.

Rittenhouse

After three and a half days of deliberation, the jury acquitted Kyle Rittenhouse on all counts. “Jurors in the polarizing case said they had voted to acquit Rittenhouse, 18, of homicide, attempted homicide and other charges related to the August 2020 shootings in Kenosha, Wisconsin” reports The Washington Post.

Rittenhouse testified during the trial during which he  became so emotional he was unable to speak in between sobs as he attempted to describe the shootings. The judge called a brief recess for Rittenhouse to regain composure.

“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Rittenhouse said on the stand. “I defended myself.”

National Review reports “As the verdict was announced, Rittenhouse, overwhelmed with emotion, burst into tears and dropped to the ground, struggling to breathe. After collecting himself, he embraced the defense counsel who represented him throughout the trial.”

Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time, shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and injured Gaige Grosskreutz, who was 26 at the time. Rittenhouse testified that he fired in self-defense and pleaded not guilty to all counts.

National Review reports:

“Rittenhouse was arrested on August 26, 2020, after shooting three people during the riots that followed the police killing of Jacob Blake, a black man who was brandishing a knife and in the process of violating a restraining order when police arrived on scene.

He was initially indicted on charges of first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide, attempted first-degree intentional reckless homicide, failure to comply with an emergency order from a local government, and possession of a dangerous weapon.”
