He acted in self defense. His charges should be dropped and he should be able to live his life as a free man.

The shootings were recorded by numerous cameras from every conceivable angle.

These multiple recorded images clearly and conclusively show that Rittenhouse acted in self-defence.

Any verdict other than '' NO CASE TO ANSWER''/INNOCENT will be a politically motivated decision arrived at for the sole purpose of placating THE BONGO and thus avoiding the standard BONGO response to justice which is the murdering whites, (usually police officers) rioting, looting and destroying public buildings as well as private businesses.

SUCH IS THE BONGO.

MAN, MAN OH MAN.

Hello F:

Can you be charged with murder if you run into an angry mob with an AR 15, stake out some "ground" to hold, and then shoot anybody who tries to take your "ground" from you???

In a sane country, of course you can.. But, HERE in this wanna be 3rd world country, fire away.

Yes. But that wasn't what he was doing.

He was attempting to distribute water and medical aid, as well as defense of a business at the indirect request of the owner. He chose to do so with a rifle. Whether you believe the rifle is necessary or unnecessary, it is legal. Kyle had more of a legal and moral right to be there than anyone in that mob that was chasing him down.

Which brings us to the 2nd point: he wasn't holding ground. He was fleeing. When he turned around and shot Pedophile Rapist McGee, he has been running away when the first shot was fired. Then kept running, at which point the angry mob started chasing him. After Skaterboy hit him over the head with a deadly weapon (yes a skateboard is a deadly weapon, get over it), he was on the ground, having his weapon wrestled away from him. Unable to run, and almost certainly about to have his weapon turned on him, that's when he fired again. This was when Mr No Bicep showed up, advanced with his weapon drawn, and pointed it at Kyle, which is both documented on video and testified under oath. Still on the ground from being struck in the head a few seconds ago he had no means of escape, and shot his third assailant. Then he got back up, and ran toward the police line.

This kid was not holding ground. He made every conceivable attempt to retreat, and the people he shot were actively trying to prevent that retreat with clearly violent intent. His alternative to shooting those 3 people would have been to face mob justice, which could very well mean being beaten to death.

Kyle Rittenhouse is not guilty.

Hello S:

Couple things..

1. You don't need an AR15 to distribute water and render medical aid.

2. If you're protecting a building, you'd be AT that building instead of in a crowd..

3. He DOES have a right wing judge though, and that's gonna help a lot.

He's guilty as charged.

On the other side of the coin Rittenhouse seemed to be one of a number of self-appointed armed vigilantes.

Shittenhaus was videoed roaming among the peaceful protesters with an assault type rifle and generally behaving in a provocative manner.

Clearly this individual was out to make trouble and to enforce his own version of the law before the demonstrators turned on him.

Playing with fire usually results in getting burned.

WHY WOULD ANYONE OR ANY GROUP INFILTRATE INTO A CROWD OF PEACEFUL, BUT EMPASSIONED PROTESTERS ARMED WITH LETHAL WEAPONRY AND BECOME CONFRONTATIONAL?

Such an idiot needs to be taken out of society.

Wow, so many false statements here, which one should I do first? I'll just start with the top.

Rittenhouse seemed to be one of a number of self-appointed armed vigilantes.

Kyle Rittenhouse was there to help heal people's wounds from the rioters and to put out fires. self-appointed armed vigilantes is not even an overstatement. It's way over that.

generally behaving in a provocative manner.

This is just plain wrong. Healing people and putting out fires should not be provocative. Anyone who would be provoked by such a thing and want to hurt Kyle over this isn't right in the head.

Clearly this individual was out to make trouble and to enforce his own version of the law

Nope. Wrong again. Just healing and putting out fires.

Playing with fire usually results in getting burned.

The two who attacked Kyle did exactly that, and they indeed got burned.

WHY WOULD ANYONE OR ANY GROUP INFILTRATE INTO A CROWD OF PEACEFUL, BUT EMPASSIONED PROTESTERS--

I'm going to stop right there. PEACEFUL? Can I ask where you get your information from? Those rioters were not peaceful in the slightest bit. They were burning down buildings. We both know that is not peaceful.
