This past week we saw in the court case where Kyle Rittenhouse is charged with murder, that Rittenhouse was acting in self-defense. We also saw the case fall apart as one of Rittenhouse’s assailants admitted to pointing his guy at young Rittenhouse before he was shot.
NBC portrays Grosskreutz as a “paramedic who was shot by Kyle Rittenhouse at a police brutality protest in August 2020”. But it’s unknown when was the last time Grosskreutz worked as a paramedic. We also know that this was not protest. Agitators like Grosskreutz were carrying guns and setting fires to the city of Kenosha, Wisconsin last year.
On Tuesday, opening statements in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, an18-year-old aspiring police officer accused of fatally shooting two men and wounding a third on the night of Aug. 25, 2020, as BLM riots raged in the streets of Kenosha in response to a white-on-black police shooting.
While prosecutors have slapped the teen with two counts of homicide and one count of attempted homicide, Rittenhouse has pleaded not guilty to all charges, claiming self-defense.
Before the shooting began, Rittenhouse, 17 at the time, was had arrived in Kenosha in order to help keep order and protect businesses from looting and arson.
“People are getting inured, and our job is to protect this business, and part of my job is also to help people.
If there’s somebody hurt, I’m running into harm’s way. That’s why I
have my rifle, because I need to protect myself obviously. But I also
have my med kit,” Rittenhouse said in footage recorded before the incident.
