Kyle Rittenhouse no longer enrolled in online classes due to student protest, Arizona State University says
Kyle Rittenhouse is no longer enrolled in Arizona State University, according to school officials, per Fox News.
Arizona State University students have called for Kyle Rittenhouse to be expelled from the online nursing classes he has been taking. Rittenhouse is a non-degree-seeking student at ASU who has been taking online classes offered through the university.
According to Fox News the Arizona State University Students for Socialism, Students for Justice in Palestine, Multicultural Solidarity Coalition, and MECHA de ASU are all calling on the Arizona State University administration to take action against Rittenhouse by withdrawing him from the university and releasing a statement against him. The four groups have dubbed him “Murderer Kyle Rittenhouse.”
The groups have also demanded that the university administration “reaffirm support for the multicultural center on campus as a safe space from White Supremacy.”
“The goal of these demands is to let the ASU administration know that we as the ASU community 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,” a Students for Socialism at Arizona State University spokesperson told Fox News. Our campus is already unsafe as is, and we would like to abate this danger as much as possible.”
The spokesperson added that the Rittenhouse trial “effectively gives right-winged individuals the license to kill other individuals who protest for human rights.”
“Rittenhouse took the lives of innocent people with the intent to do so—by strapping an assault rifle to himself in a crowd of unarmed citizens. That is the textbook definition of intention, said the spokesperson. “The decision made by the court is one of thousands of cases that have been influenced by biased judges, predominantly white juries, and mistakes inherent in a judicial system founded off of injustice to begin with.
