Man Charged for First Degree Murder After Shooting Kenosha Rioters in What Many Saw as Self Defense

Before we begin, violence, death, injury, and harassment even, by anyone, for any reason is always tragic. We always stand by that and denounce violence. Self-defense, however, and a jury will probably have to make that call now, is supposed to be legal in this country.

Many left-wing pundits and rage mob types on Twitter are demanding that the man who allegedly shot people and killed two at the Kenosha, Wisconsin riots last night be labeled a white supremacist who was basically out to get rioters.

Much evidence shows that that may just not be the case though. Despite the fact that video shows a good potential case for self-defense, Kyle Rittenhouse was arrested for first-degree murder.

He is 17-years-old. Based on tweets, which can sometimes be debunked, and we will update if necessary, the man was allegedly not ‘racist’ at all, nor did he even condemn ‘Black Lives Matter’. You can see some of the more graphic videos on the Twitter feed of @ElijahSchaffer and other handles as well, which we won’t post here. ‘Elijah Riot’ said:

“CONTEXT: I spoke with the alleged shooter earlier in the night who stated he was there to protect property He did not make racist comments, condemn #BLM, or mention political motivations for his actions He said that he was there to protect property & was carrying a firearm”

Yahoo News reported:

Police have arrested a suspect in the shooting of three people ― two fatally ― during a third night of protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, county Sheriff David Beth told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The suspect, 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, was reportedly arrested in his hometown of Antioch, Illinois, and charged with first-degree murder on Wednesday. Police had been searching for him after a man holding a long gun was captured on video shooting several people during the protests and then fleeing the scene.

Protesters clashed with police outside the Kenosha County Courthouse after a local white police officer shot Jacob Blake, a Black man, multiple times in the back with his children nearby over the weekend.

Matt Walsh of the Daily Wire opined on the situation that the left is melting down about:

“They charged the guy with first degree murder. The one clear video where he’s running away seems very obviously to be self defense. He’s running, he falls, they pounce, he shoots. One of the rioters is also armed. I don’t know about the other incident though. Video isn’t clear.”

Ian Miles Cheong alleges that one of the shooting victims might have thrown a Molotov cocktail at the alleged shooter:

“A Molotov cocktail appears to have been thrown at the shooter in Kenosha before he fired at the first victim. It is unclear if the assailant throwing what appears to be a molotov cocktail and the shooting victim are the same person. Don’t jump to conclusions.”

Cassandra Fairbanks of Gateway Pundit posted some graphic photos in support of the self defense theory.

“This is all you really need to know about the Kenosha shooting. I’m glad that the young man made it out alive, no matter what it took.”

As we stated at the beginning, we will find out what a jury ultimately decides and we are in full support of law and order, and only peaceful protest from any side should ever be acceptable. One thing that many people are starting to wonder though is if the government is willing to keep us safe, and if we do get into a hypothetical situation where we have to defend ourselves, will the government defend us then?

All suspects are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty in the United States and we will try to bring you updates on this shocking, scary, and tragic situation. Meanwhile, we hope that all riots come to an end so the world and nation can get back to their peaceful lives.
