Attorney for accused Kenosha protest gunman says teen acted in self-defense

A high-profile lawyer representing the 17-year-old boy charged with killing two protesters and wounding another during demonstrations on the streets of Kenosha, Wisconsin, said on Friday that his client had acted in self-defense.

Atlanta-based attorney Lin Wood said video footage of the altercation would vindicate Kyle Rittenhouse despite what he described as misinformation being spread by the media.

I'm confused. Didn't people chase him because he just shot someone in the head? (before what we see in the video)

I guess he would argue that dropping the bomb on Hiroshima was self defence for Pearl Habour too

The whole trial won't matter anyway, if Trump wins the next election the pardon will come in quick as a shot.

The latest report is Rittenhouse was running from the first person he(Josh Rosenbaum) shot. Rosenbaum pursued Rittenhouse while throwing objects while Rittenhouse was trying to feel from him. Rosenbaum then charged him and was shot.

Earlier in the day Joseph Rosenbaum was seen aggressively confronting armed citizens saying, "Shoot me nigg*". Rosenbuam is a registered sex offender with a history of battery and domestic abuse. The second assailant seen bashing Rittenhouse with a skateboard while he was on the ground before getting shot has a lengthy record which includes charges of domestic abuse, battery, use of a dangerous weapon and false imprisonment.

So far it looks like self defense.

I want to know what kind of mother drives her kid, with a gun, to a protest.

If we're going to dig into people's backgrounds, this kid is not going to fare well based on what I've seen.

This is what happens when you defund the police. If there are no police around to keep the peace, then citizens will do it to defend themselves and their property.

Regular citizens? I can see that. A f-cking 17 year old? No. He should NOT have been there. That's reckless and stupid.

There were tons of well-funded cops around the Kenosha protests. They're the ones who didn't even stop and question this guy, even though he was visibly open-carrying a long gun and people were yelling that he'd shot someone.

Perhaps they chose to avoid what could have turned into a violent confrontation and endangering innocents...

He wasn't the only one out there with a gun. And as these riots get worse, you bet regular citizens will get guns to defend themselves.

Maybe if half as much effort was being made to fix the conditions that people are protesting as is spent on stopping protesters...

Aside from the 17 year old kid (and maybe his mom), how much effort really is spent on stopping protesters?

Really? Because I don’t think any defunding policies have been enacted in Kenosha, much less come into effect.

Does it really have to be in effect before the vigilante types he's talking about are inspired to act?

This is an example of what will happen when you defund the police.

While it may not apply specifically to Kenosha, I think it's a fair point to bring up- - it's not unreasonable to think that calls to defund the police are going to be taken as calls for vigilante justice to step in when the police are thought to be no longer able to protect citizens.

Police don't protect all citizens. Who was there to protect those expressing their opinion from the gun nut who murdered them?
18 days ago - Sunday 8/30/20 - 9:49:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
Just because the opinion they were espousing wasn't fascism, you're no longer in favor of protecting their rights

No. This is an example of what happens when fully funded police welcome vigilantes and then turn their heads when those vigilantes threaten and murder people.

What vigilantes?

Police were told to turn their heads and leave their city when the lefties came in to loot, murder, commit arson and so forth. Who gave them that order? Democrats of course.

Kinda jumping to conclusions without any evidence to support the claim, aren't you?

Murder? The allegation is that the gun nut was assaulted and was defending himself...

The protesters should be free to exercise their right to demonstrate.
