A father and his teenager daughter in Wisconsin armed themselves to “protect” those protesting the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse in Kenosha.
Erick Jordan was seen walking ahead of protesters with his 16-year-old daughter, Jade, and their firearms.
Jordan had told the New York Post that they “do security for different groups” and were helping the small group of protesters Sunday.
“I got a job to do — protect these people. That’s it,” Jordan said. He had previously appeared outside the Kenosha courthouse on Friday when the Rittenhouse verdict was announced.
“This is my town, my people,” he said. “We don’t agree on a lot of things, but we fight, we argue, we agree to disagree and go home safe, alive”.
Jordan called it “real self-defense”. He has been training his daughter to use guns since she was 4 years old, but didn’t allow her to use one until she was 14.
He explained that he supports the Second Amendment and was in Kenosha the same night as Rittenhouse. Jordan was protecting a restaurant and two parking lots during the riots.
