Thursday, Dec 10 marks the one-year anniversary of a hate-fueled attack that killed three people and a police officer at a Jewish market in Jersey City. It is considered to be one of the worst hate crimes in New Jersey history.

The shooting left four people dead, including grocery owner Leah Mindy Ferencz, store customer Moshe Hirsch Deutsch, store employee Douglas Miguel Rodriguez Barzola and Jersey City detective Joseph Seals.

It is understood that the shooters in the attack were also planning to target a yeshiva next door that had 50 children inside at the time of the assault. However, their plans miraculously didn’t come to fruition.

The Jewish community in Jersey City is still mourning the losses, especially today, on the one year anniversary of the attack.

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.”
