Ramirez spoke with LBL about JMU’s response to the Rittenhouse acquittal.

Ramirez told LBL: “Guessing the guilt of a young man who was found guilty by a jury of his peers is a paradox that stands for a fair criminal justice system.” “JMU has allowed it to take place on their official social media accounts. Can’t say anything about the obvious misinformation. It’s fantastic.”

“It’s faint to see that the school’s chemistry department doubles up with more political rhetoric,” he said. “In their posts, they say, ‘It’s hard to focus on chemistry,’ but it’s literally their job and they expect parents to pay thousands of dollars in tuition. That’s why I’m so adamant. That should be taught.
