Kenosha police Chief Dan Miskinis: My officers did nothing wrong in allowing teen gunman Kyle Rittenhouse to walk away after allegedly killing 2 protesters – Chicago Sun-Times

The newspaper lede that blatantly editorializes:

Kenosha police Chief Daniel Miskinis on Friday tried to rationalize why his officers allowed a teenage gunman to walk away from the scene after authorities have said he killed two people with an assault rifle — a situation that led to heavy criticism of the department.

Rationalize? Not explain? Or does the writer and his editors not know the difference?
