The mother of 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, accused of fatally shooting two people and wounding a third during the Kenosha riots said her son acted in self-defense and that he shouldn’t be in jail.
Kyle Rittenhouse was a 17 year-old resident of Antioch who was on the streets of Kenosha with a long gun with a stated purpose of protecting property during riots that involved millions of dollars of damage by rioters who were terrorizing downtown Kenosha and the residents of Kenosha on the third of three nights of rioting.
Kyle Rittenhouse is now in jail in Wisconsin awaiting a trial, and his mother, Wendy Rittenhouse, has moved out of Antioch, Illinois because their family received death threats.
In a Kenosha County official complaint, Kyle Rittenhouse is charged with six counts including First Degree Reckless Homicide, First Degree Reckless Homicide and First Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety and probable cause filed August 27, 2020.
Count 1: FIRST DEGREE RECKLESS HOMICIDE, USE OF A DANGEROUS WEAPON
Count 2: FIRST DEGREE RECKLESSLY ENDANGERING SAFETY, USE OF A DANGEROUS WEAPON
Count 3: FIRST DEGREE INTENTIONAL HOMICIDE, USE OF A DANGEROUS WEAPON
Count 4: ATTEMPT FIRST DEGREE INTENTIONAL HOMICIDE, USE OF A DANGEROUS WEAPON
Count 5: FIRST DEGREE RECKLESSLY ENDANGERING SAFETY, USE OF A DANGEROUS WEAPON
Count 6: POSSESSION OF A DANGEROUS WEAPON BY A PERSON UNDER 18
The reaction to Kyle’s charges and potential life sentence is polarized.
Sample comments on WGN’s video …
“I stand by Kyle we need more American heroes like him to protect our community from criminals like the BLM Looters.”
“He is totally innocent. He was defending himself”
“He’s in jail charged with felonies for defending his life from a mob destroying a city. His mother says what every normal person feels.”
“Kyle put out a dumpster fire so the Democrat mobsters attacked him. He tried to get away, but they caught him. They tried to inflict great bodily harm and possibly kill him. Of course he defended himself from crazed attackers. He didn’t shoot anyone other than the immediate attackers. He is a hero for putting out that fire.”
If you watch the footage play by play on NYT’s site (Tracking Kyle Rittenhouse…), it clearly shows he was provoked by the three who attacked him for looking like someone else.
“Kyle is a brave young man”
“Anyone who chases down a man with a machine gun is a special kind of stupid.”
“Attacking someone holding a rifle is called a death wish! It’s sad but mob mentality is dangerous.”
“I saw that video He’s more responsible with that firearm than anybody else on that situation.”
“You do the crime you do the time”
“Oh he does not want to help people he wants to help certain people and kill others”
“so she sent him on the murder mission…. put her on trail (sic) as well! Don’t try to be a mother now”
“She should be in jail”
“Kyle Rittenhouse shouldn’t take guns to protests and neither should anyone else. The reason we have protests in the first place is so we DON’T have to use guns.”
“He is a minor, you are responsible. You should be charged. He had a gun! Take responsibility for your faulty parenting! CHARGE HER. He is not qualified to “Medic”. You are wrong!”
“Kyle is not the law and he is not above the law. He knew better just like his mother! 25 to life.”
“He needs to do time just as Trump and his cronies need to do time. His mother is only encouraging this behavior.”
