In this paper we prove the global existence of the weak solution to the mean field kinetic equation derived from the $N$-particle pedestrian Newtonian system. For $L^1\cap L^\infty$ initial data, the solvability of the mean field kinetic equation can be obtained by using uniform estimates and compactness arguments while difficulties arising from the non-local non-linear interaction are tackled appropriately using the Aubin-Lions compact embedding theorem.
