Rittenhouse fatally shot Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber and wounded Gaige Grosskreutz during often violent protests in the summer of 2020 following the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man, in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Rittenhouse, 17 at the time, faced charges ranging from intentional homicide to reckless and attempted homicide.

  1. Can you imagine all the people who wanted him guilty. Question for those horrible individuals who looted the stores, and destroyed property, if you were in fear of your life, and you had a weapon, you want to tell me you wouldn’t have used it? All the videos show it was self defense. So stop rioting and looting, and making your city unsafe. Let this kid stay in peace.

    1. Why were the protests in Kenosha started to begin with? Rittenhouse is a murderer, and he will always be one. He’s not a kid anymore. He’s an 18-year-old adult.

    2. @Alex A No, it was murder. Rittenhouse is a murderer protected by white supremacy to continue murder with his white supremacist militia. All racist trash use the “self-defense” & “protecting property” when they have no business doing so.

    3. @ExquisiteCoils Well, according to a JURY OF HIS PEERS, He’s NOT GUILTY. The 3 men he killed was in self defense. And the media made them heroes. Seriously?! 1 was a child molester, the other 2 abusive pos. I believe THEIR victims can live in peace knowing they’re no longer being hurt. Cause I’m sure if your child was a victim of sexual assault, you wouldn’t think twice about pulling the trigger. This 18 year old was fighting for his life. The media made him out to be a monster, a white supremacist….and he’s neither. Kyle deserves to sue every news outlet for defaming his character a head of this trial. This was a he said / she said until that video drone showed the actual TRUTH. Also, the DA was a horrible lawyer. Pointing the AR15 at the jury members with his finger on the trigger to make his point! And, he still lost. Let Kyle live in. peace, and for those who are crying for the so called “vile victims ” need to realize the world is better place with another child molester gone, and 2 abusive pos.

    4. @Manuela Mootsy Oh right, the same jury of his peers who are not corrupt and compromised. The same juries who convict innocent men who end up being exonerated decades later. Play stupid games with someone else. You can keep bringing up the victim’s criminal records all you like, but Kyle Rittenhouse was on trial, not them. Kyle Rittenhouse murdered them, and got away with it because white supremacy couldn’t take punishing one of their own that young.

      And don’t bring up children when Kyle was raised to be a racist thug and murderer by his racist trash parents. Why wasn’t Wendy and the missing deadbeat dad charged for Kyle’s underaged criminal acts? Kyle is not a hero or a victim.

      The evidence was omitted from the court as he was shoving his gun in a group of black protestors’ faces to initiate them. Judge Shroeder declared it wasn’t pertinent to the case. The judge was Kyle’s best defense attorney. And best believe the judge, the jury, Kyle’s parents are all part of the same rotten tree of white supremacy. You have no moral authority to stand on, nor the truth. The 17-year-old at the time had no business being out after curfew, but he had permission from his parents to carry an illegal gun and go murder BLM protestors.

      Kyle Rittenhouse is a murderer. His parents should have been charged but weren’t because they’re all protected by the white supremacist Judge and jury. The truth hurts.

  2. In a political trial its hard to find justice when the judge has a Donald Trump ring tone go off during testimony

    1. High bar of legitimacy you have. Wait till you find out F. S. Key’s National Anthem’s accompaniment was stolen from a 17th century British drinking song.

    2. Sure…according to the liberal media he was already guilty before the verdict
      Maybe you should stop watching the media and use your own judgment. That was self-defense

  3. 3 people attacking you while you were legally carrying a gun ( AR15 style rifle ) on a street protest? Lord God, I am scared for my life, I ask for courage and forgiveness as I defend myself …

  4. Really like this country, you can kill people on the street with assault rifle and you get free, only in USA 😂 🤣
