Now 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse is on trial for fatally shooting two men and wounding a third. He traveled to Kenosha, Wisconsin to protect local business owners and provide medical aid after two nights of destructive riots. Rittenhouse, who was trained in emergency care, brought a medical kit and an AR-15-style semi-automatic rifle.
Within 48 hours of the chaotic events, he was charged with two counts of homicide, one count of attempted homicide, recklessly endangering safety and illegal possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under the age of 18. The gun charge was later dropped, but the politically ambitious, Democrat DA overstepped reason and acted in his own political self-interest to charge Rittenhouse so quickly.
In all that I have seen (a gun pointed at his head, etc.), Rittenhouse clearly acted in self-defense and had no ill-intent. One of his attackers, Joseph Rosenbaum, was a child rapist, and one of the other guys had a felony charge. One had just been let out of a mental hospital after a suicide attempt.
According to a statement from Kenosha Police, of 175 people arrested in Kenosha during the looting and riots, 102 live outside the community. None are in jail now.
