Illinois teen charged with homicide
in killings of two people
during Kenosha protests

Original Article

An Illinois man suspected of killing two people and wounding a third during a third night of protests in Kenosha has been arrested and is now jailed in Lake County, Illinois. Court records show Kyle Rittenhouse, 17, has been charged there as a fugitive from justice. That document, reviewed by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, said he faces a first-degree intentional homicide charge in Kenosha County.

Comments:

The videos don't show what led up to Rittenhouse being chased down the street by the protestors. Very reminiscent of the Albuquerque, NM incident. Kid up from Illinois...why? What was he doing armed? Lots of unanswered questions.

Looked to me like he was being attacked. If memory serves, someone kicked him in the head while he was down before shots were fired. Maybe I am wrong, but I am not so sure I would have not been dispensing lead in that situation myself.

We'll need more info to be sure what is going on, BUT.....it look like you can riot, burn and loot with impunity, but if you defend yourself or your neighborhood and get arrested. We do not have all the info, but if that is what this was, we see the "justice system" seems to be protecting the looters and arsonists rather then normal people and property owners.

He went from Illinois to Kenosha armed with an AK-15, according to the article. Shot two dead, shot another in the arm. Then the article says video showed him walking, arms up, toward tactical vehicles that were headed to the shooting victims. Drugged up? He is 17, no kid, and is being charged as an adult, hence his name is given. First degree says they believe he went to Kenosha with his weapon, intending to do harm. The article says there are a number of videos of what happened. As they say, “developing story”.

FTA (I was wrong about weapon): Video from bystanders showed a chaotic scene near a busy intersection in the city of Kenosha shortly before midnight, in which a man used an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle to kill one man with a blast to the head and another with a shot to the abdomen. A third man, believed to be a street medic, was shot in the arm and is expected to survive.

All the videos are online. You can see it all from several angles and distances. He was attacked by multiple men while trying to run away. One had a handgun, another was hitting him with a skateboard (club) while he was on the ground and tried to grab his rifle. Clear case of self defense. 3 antifa won't be joining the riots ever again.

I was wrong about Rittenhouse. Just posted a newer article about his considering himself to be militia, there to protect property. A local militia leader had put out a call for recruits. It appears that Rittenhouse was one who responded to that internet bulletin.

Just heard the Chief of Police of Kenosha speak. Sounds like a “woke” Chief. Most be comforting to his Policemen to know that should they use deadly force to protect themselves they will most likely be charged! Oh but he did Kneel with the BLM Marxist a few weeks earlier. So citizens if you are a resident of Kenosha if you protect your property you are a Vigilante!

I saw a video of rioters chasing Rittenhouse. He was knocked down and attacked. He fired his weapon in what appeared to be self defense. Rittenhouse apparently shot someone in the head prior to the incident shown in this video. Don’t know circumstances of the first shooting.

What do our "leaders" expect? The sheriff essentially told the 'militia' to go home because he's got it handled, and then demonstrated that he had no intention of fulfilling his duty. All over the nation it's been demonstrated time after time that law enforcement will not employ sufficient measures to protect the lives and property of peaceful citizens. More and more citizens will rise up to take action, beginning with the most volatile, least reasoned and least trained.

Correction. From the video it appears Rittenhouse tripped and fell down before the rioters pounced.

He was charged as an adult. so his name was revealed. In Wisconsin you are an adult at 18 unless you are involved in criminal activity. Then you are an adult at 17. Just posted an excellent article from RedState that puts forward the self defense issue. Lots of photos and a key to critical part of video (time stamp). https://www.lucianne.com/2020/08/26/breaking_down_the_videos_of_the_two_shooting_incidents_in_kenosha__self-defense_42006.html

He has been branded an enemy of the state and now the political trial starts. He shot someone who was trying to crush his skull with a skateboard and that 'street medic' had a pistol pointed at the kid when the kid was on the ground. He didn't shoot the 'street medic' until the rioter charged him WITH A DRAWN PISTOL.

Don't be surprised if citizens that are fed up with the lack of action by their local governments to control these violent and destructive riots start taking matters into their own hands. Violence begets violence!

Who knew Wisconsin Republicans were such big fans of Kanye West? The rapper's campaign turned in a number of signatures on Tuesday in a bid to get on the November presidential ballot in Wisconsin. He is making similar attempts in Ohio, Arkansas and West Virginia. Reid Magney, spokesman for the state Elections Commission, said it could be several days before officials confirm that West has enough valid signatures to appear on the ballot as an independent candidate representing the Birthday Party.

The NBA’s greatest fear was a player radical enough to go beyond its collectively bargained, wink-wink, nod-nod “protest,” not a player so radical that he would protest the protest in the other direction. But Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac felt so compelled to work his way into the loophole, a Black player doing the unthinkable of sorts, refusing to kneel during Friday’s national anthem and eschewing the Black Lives Matter shirt all the players have been warming up in the re-start at Walt Disney World.

Kanye West has dropped his 2020 presidential bid, according to a new report. The 43-year-old rapper's campaign has reportedly been suspended less than two weeks after he shocked the nation with a tweet that confirmed his decision to run for president of the United States in November. According to a new report from Intelligencer, a "get-out-the-vote specialist" named Steve Kramer claims West is already "out" after the Yeezy founder hired both "paid and volunteer" staff to help him secure signatures in Florida and South Carolina to get him on the ballot.

Spoiler alert: 2020 has been rough on the American psyche. Folks in the U.S. are more unhappy today than they've been in nearly 50 years. This bold – yet unsurprising – conclusion comes from the COVID Response Tracking Study, conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago. It finds that just 14% of American adults say they're very happy, down from 31% who said the same in 2018. That year, 23% said they'd often or sometimes felt isolated in recent weeks. Now, 50% say that. The survey, conducted in late May, draws on nearly a half-century of research...
Will U.S. Shale Ever Return To Its Boom Days? 8 replies

U.S. shale drillers are bringing back shut in production three months after the onset of the current downturn. But steep decline rates will increasingly take hold, dragging down overall U.S. output later this year. With oil prices approaching $40 per barrel, many drillers are covering immediate operational costs. Rystad Energy estimates that “a bit more than 300,000 bpd” of shut in U.S. oil production has come back online. A total of 1.15 million barrels per day (mb/d) was shut in in April and May, and that output will “return swiftly over July and August,” JBC Energy wrote in a note.

I can’t remember a wildcat strike ever happening by a pro sports team, let alone an entire league, let alone during the playoffs. My guess is that it’ll alienate more people than it’ll win over, but alienation never lasts very long in sports. A million fans will vow today that they’ll never watch the NBA again and most will be back next week, or at least for the Finals. And everyone who isn’t will be back next season. The Milwaukee Bucks violated the collective bargaining agreement with the league when they decided to protest by not playing today’s game against the Orlando Magic.
