Electronics superstore chain Best Buy sent out an email to their employees offering counseling services in response to a jury acquitting Kyle Rittenhouse last Friday on charges of homicide, attempted homicide and reckless endangering in the deaths of Joseph Rosenbaum, and Anthony Huber and the wounding of Gaige Grosskreutz.

Best Buy was one of the many companies to update their website and social media pages after the death of George Floyd and after the shooting injury of Jacob Blake.

None of the men shot by Rittenhouse were black.

The email from Mark Irvin, Chief inclusion talent and diversity officer was sent to all employee resource group members and read, "The verdict in Kyle Rittenhouse’s trial stirs many emotions, and its another difficult moment for our nation."

"While these events can be challenging and deeply hurtful, I hope you will take a moment to reflect on the values that unite us as a company and as a nation. We can do better, as each of us as individuals, allies and human beings press together for better outcomes."

"I know events like these can take a toll on mental health and emotional well-being. Please know that best Buy is here to support you."

Irvin then provided links to counseling services and mental health resources some which are available through the company provided benefits.

The email concluded, "By engaging together, and supporting one another in vulnerability, empathy, courage, and grace, we can continue to strengthen our company and community to stand together as one."

Irvin signed off, "Steadfast together."

During the riots that followed the death of Floyd and the shooting of Blake, Best Buy locations in Emeryville, Oakland and San Francisco, California as well as Chicago, Illinois, and others were looted.

Looters even stole a crane to break into the Fairfield, California location.

In West Palm Beach, FL, a Best Buy Geek Squad car was set on fire
