Several student organizations at Arizona University are demanding that school administrators remove Kyle Rittenhouse from his online classes after he was acquitted of homicide charges for fatally shooting two men at a Jacob Blake protest last year.
During the trial, Rittenhouse told jurors that he was enrolled in online nursing classes at Arizona State. However, on Monday (Nov. 29), a university spokesperson told the Guardian that “Kyle Rittenhouse has not gone through the ASU admissions process” and was “not currently enrolled in any classes at ASU.”
12News previously reported that Rittenhouse was enrolled in classes that were for “non-degree seeking students” who might later seek access into a degree program. Nonetheless, members of the Students for Socialism want him removed from the school altogether.
“Our campus is already unsafe as is and we would like to abate this danger as much as possible,” a spokesperson for the organization told Fox News in a statement.
“The goal of these demands is to let the ASU administration know that we do not feel safe knowing that a mass shooter, who has expressed violent intentions about ‘protecting property’ over people, is so carelessly allowed to be admitted to the school at all.”
The group is also planning to host a rally on Wednesday (Dec. 1), according to flyers that were shared on social media. “KILLER OFF CAMPUS,” read the poster, which also called for the university to “protect students from a violent, blood-thirsty murderer.”
As REVOLT previously reported, earlier this month, Rittenhouse was found not guilty of several charges, including first-degree reckless homicide, first-degree reckless endangerment, first-degree intentional homicide and attempted first-degree attempted homicide.
Since his acquittal, Rittenhouse and his mother met with Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida. The former president described him as “a nice young man” and the two took photos together.
