500 National Guard Troops Will Be On Standby As Rittenhouse Trial Comes To A Close


KENOSHA, WISCONSIN — The Governor of Wisconsin, Tony Evers, has authorized 500 National Guard troops to help support Kenosha police if needed, based on the outcome of the Kyle Rittenhouse trial that is scheduled to hear closing arguments on Monday.

“We continue to be in close contact with our partners at the local level to ensure the state provides support and resources to help keep the Kenosha community and greater area safe,” Evers said in a news release. “The Kenosha community has been strong, resilient, and has come together through incredibly difficult times these past two years, and that healing is still ongoing.”

The troops will be outside of Kenosha in a standby status, only called upon if local authorities request additional help.
