Rittenhouse Trial

Riots burned in cities across America in the summer of 2020. In August, rioters began burning down Kenosha, Wisconsin. Police declined to stop them. On day three, August 25, Kyle Rittenhouse drove from a couple of towns over. The 17-year-old was involved in his community and had worked in Kenosha as a lifeguard, and his father lived there. Like some of the others out that night, he carried a firearm. He cleaned graffiti, carried medical supplies, and tried to deter rioters from destroying. Close to midnight a man began chasing him. When the man closed to within a few feet, a gunshot went off in the same parking lot. Rittenhouse began to turn, the man lunged, and Rittenhouse shot four times in less than a second, killing him.

Rittenhouse headed through the crowds toward the police line. People shouted that he had shot someone. Some yelled for him to be attacked. At least one person struck him. He fell to the street. In the next 10 seconds, a man tried to jump on him; another man struck him in the head with a skateboard and reached for his rifle; a third man within about four feet raised his hands then dropped them, pointing a loaded pistol at point-blank range; and a fourth man raised his hands. Rittenhouse shot only the man grabbing the rifle (fatally) and the man pointing the pistol (non-fatally). Rittenhouse then went to police to put himself into custody.
