Facing a class-action lawsuit from hundreds of New York City restaurant owners, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announces indoor dining can reopen this month.

“Opening restaurants, I understand the economic benefit. I understand the economic pressure that there’s a whole industry around restaurants. We’re now announcing today that we can go to 25 percent of indoor dining,” said Gov. Cuomo in a press briefing.

But is the 25 percent capacity cap too little, too late to help the industry recover?

Gov. Cuomo described some of the protocols put in place, to ensure that this reopening is safe. There will be mandatory temperature checks at the door. One member of each party required to provide contact info for tracing if needed. No bar service, but you can still get drinks through your waiter or waitress.

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.”
