Who knows why in the world 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse was patrolling the streets of Kenosha, Wisconsin with an AR-15. Only bad things could occur, and they did. Why no one in his life prevented him from being there is still a mystery.
The narratives emerging are that Rittenhouse is a white supremacist, and , that he is a murderer. Neither appears to be the case.
The New York Times searched his social media account and found that “multiple posts on his social media accounts proclaim support for pro-police causes like the Blue Lives Matter movement and Humanize the Badge, a nonprofit that he ran a Facebook fund-raiser for on his 16th birthday.”
This does not support that Rittenhouse was involved with real white supremacy, as opposed to fake white supremacy that has been invented by the professional victim class of liberal America.
About murder, in every single video, Rittenhouse is clearly trying to extricate himself from danger brought on by a mob that appeared hell bent on doing him harm.
The resulting breakdown of events by the Times tells a different story.
Rittenhouse was seen on social media video throughout the night mostly staying in the area of a Kenosha car dealership — but not the same one where the first shooting occurred. The Times also noted that he was captured in multiple videos offering medical assistance to protesters who were affected by pepper spray that police used in the area. He was then seen passing out water bottles to police and talking to officers in the area. He left that dealership, and police prevented him from returning.
According to the Times, “Six minutes later footage shows Mr. Rittenhouse being chased by an unknown group of people into the parking lot of another dealership several bocks away.”
One of those people was the first person who was shot by Rittenhouse. That person has been identified by police as Joseph Rosenbaum, a white registered sex offender who was convicted of a sex crime with a minor and who was seen on video using the N-word near black militia members and taunting them to “shoot me, n***a.”
The Times then writes that as he was trying to escape, Rittenhouse tripped and fell to the ground, and then “fir[ed] four shots as three people rush[ed] toward him. One person appear[ed] to be hit in the chest[.]”
The person in question was caught on video trying to hit Rittenhouse with his skateboard. A Getty photographer happened to catch this attack literally as it happened.
The other individual who was shot by Rittenhouse was “carrying a handgun,” but omits that the gun was also loaded.
Attorney John Pierce of Pierce Bainbridge announced the firm will be representing Rittenhouse.
