First Analysis of Kyle Rittenhouse Shooting Footage from Kenosha
This video was originally posted on YouTube in the early morning hours of August 26th, 2020. I had spent the night gathering clips from various sources and assembling them together into a timeline. That timeline showed that even though Kyle Rittenhouse shouldn't have been in the area, he nonetheless acted in self-defense. Two days later, I see that the MSM and social justice warriors still haven't put together the basic timeline and facts that I made available before the mainstream news or even the local police department did. Though I knew the teen's name at the time of this recording, I did not use it in my video so as to not doxx him. But his name has since become well-known to the general public. I've learned a lot more since this video was published, but here are the basic facts that were established before the sun had even risen the next morning:
BLM & Antifa rioters and arsonists have turned their fury on the town of Kenosha, Wisconsin, following the police shooting of Jacob Blake. In response, some armed members of the community tried to defend businesses from the rioters. This led to confrontations and multiple shootings. While this video does contain distressing content, it is in no way intended to glorify violence. It is a Fair Use analysis of a notable news event for educational purposes and journalistic reporting.
The video analysis begins at minute mark 3:10
#Kenosha Facts: BLM/Antifa arsonists were burning down private properties. A local teen / Public Safety Cadet from the neighboring city of Antioch IL, chose to stand with other local community members to protect their community from the criminals. This was done with the consent and "appreciation" of the local police who were greatly outnumbered by the criminals.
The young man was filmed before the shootings trying to get medical help for some of the rioters after they had clashes with the police. Despite the fact that all he was doing was trying to keep looters and arsonists from burning down the building he was protecting, rioters started attacking him. One man named Joseph Rosenbaum, who had been using racial epithets and trying to stoke a mob frenzy to attack the men with the guns. Rosenbaum chased the boy and tried to hit him with an object. Initially, social media reports said it was a Molotov cocktail. But what appears to be thrown in the video is something in a bag, like a rock or brick.
When the man continued to chase the boy, the boy shot him in the head - killing him. The boy then began running down the street toward the police vehicles to tell them what happened. Earlier in the night, the boy had personally interacted with those police and had their support. As he ran, multiple rioters attacked him - including a man with a semi-automatic handgun. The boy fought off the attackers in self-defense, shooting one attacker in the arm and another man, who attacked the teen with a skateboard, in the chest. The man who was shot in the arm will have to have it amputated. The man shot in the chest died on the scene.
The teen then continued to run toward the police with rioters still chasing him. As he neared the police, they were not alarmed at his approach because they knew him from speaking with him less than an hour earlier. The public outrage that the police let him run around with a gun just because he is white is therefore wrong.
These are facts that are supported by video evidence. There is no evidence at all that the teen is a white supremacist, a "boogaloo", or any of the other left-wing labels being used against him.
