Kyle Rittenhouse, (born January 3, 2003 age 18 years) from Antioch, Illinois, who on August 25, 2020, amid the unrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, shot and killed two men (Joseph D. Rosenbaum and Anthony M. Huber) and wounded another (Gaige Grosskreutz) in self defense. He was armed with an AR-15 style rifle, while the individual wounded by Rittenhouse was armed with a Glock handgun. Rittenhouse stated that he was in Kenosha to protect a car dealership from vandalism and to provide medical aid. Rittenhouse's trial took place between November 1 and 19, 2021. The judge dismissed an unlawful weapon possession charge and a curfew violation charge and on November 19, 2021 the jury found Rittenhouse unanimously not guilty of all charges.



  • As I’m walking down Sheridan Road, I hear somebody scream, “Burn in hell.” And I reply with, “Friendly, friendly, friendly.” To let them know, hey, I’m just here to help. I don’t want any problems. I just want to put out the fires if there are any. I continue walking and then I notice the Duramax, I notice a flame in the back seat of the Duramax and I stepped towards the Duramax and as I’m stepping forward, I believe his name is now Joshua Ziminski, he steps towards me with a pistol in his hand. As I’m walking towards to put out the fire, I drop the fire extinguisher and I take a step back.
    My plan is to get out of that situation and go back north down Sheridan Road to where the Car Source lot number two was.
    Once I take that step back, I look over my shoulder and Mr. Rosenbaum was now running from my right side and I was cornered from, in front of me with Mr. Ziminski and there were three people right there.

  • You saw the same tape as I saw. And he was trying to get away from them, I guess; it looks like. And he fell, and then they very violently attacked him. And it was something that we’re looking at right now and it’s under investigation. But I guess he was in very big trouble. He would have been — I — he probably would have been killed.

  • Rittenhouse began running slowly down the street as a crowd began to follow him, with some people shouting "get him!" and shouting he just shot someone.
    Rittenhouse tripped and fell.
    While he was on the ground, police say, he appeared to fire two shots at a man who jumped over him but missed.
    Trump’s comments completely overlook the fact that people started following him after he allegedly shot and killed someone. He also claimed protesters "violently attacked" Rittenhouse, but that is not fully supported by the videos, either.
    Rittenhouse did fall as a crowd followed him, but Trump’s comments leave an incendiary and false picture: By the time he fell, according to criminal charges, Rittenhouse had already shot and killed one person that night.
  • The complaint says Black told authorities that over the summer he received money for the Smith & Wesson M&P 15 rifle from Rittenhouse, his friend, who was too young to have legally purchased the weapon himself.
    According to the criminal complaint against Black, the weapon used in the shootings was purchased on May 1 at the Wisconsin gun store Ladysmith Ace Home Center by Black, who prosecutors claim was “aware” Rittenhouse could not have made the purchase himself. Since Rittenhouse was an Illinois resident he also did not have an Illinois Firearm Owner Identification card, so the pair agreed to have the weapon stored at Black’s stepfather’s house in Kenosha, the complaint says.
    The pair went to Black’s stepfather’s house on Aug. 25, the complaint says, where Black gave Rittenhouse the gun.

  • Wisconsin court records listed Rittenhouse’s race differently — one record (regarding the homicide accusations) described him as white, and another (listing two violations during a traffic stop) said he was Hispanic.
    Considering that information, we reached out to Kenosha law enforcement officials to learn how authorities determine defendants’ race for court records and why deputies listed Rittenhouse as “Hispanic” in mid-August and “white” roughly one week later.
  • The three men Kyle Rittenhouse shot during a protest against police brutality in Wisconsin last summer can be characterized as “rioters,” “looters,” or “arsonists” — but not victims, the judge in his murder trial ruled this week.... Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger called the rules a double standard, noting during the court hearing that terms “such as rioter, looter and arsonist are as loaded, if not more loaded, than the term ‘victim.'”...Binger also noted that [Judge] Schroeder was inconsistent in his “victims” rule, which is apparently a long-held policy of the judge inside his courtroom. “You’ve not let me call someone a victim when it was proven,” he said. Binger argued that referring to the three men as “looters” or “rioters” is particularly unjust because these phrases serve to give the impression that Rittenhouse’s actions were justified...Beyond barring the description of the men Rittenhouse shot as “victims,” Schroeder has ruled that prosecutors cannot bring up Rittenhouse’s connections to the Proud Boys, a white nationalist organization that has a history of inciting violence at protests. Schroeder... said that Rittenhouse’s association with the Proud Boys wasn’t relevant to the case — despite the fact that shortly after the fatal shootings last year, Rittenhouse flashed a hate symbol and posed for pictures with the group in a Wisconsin bar.

So no, Kyle Rittenhouse did not violate Wisconsin's gun laws... and that means that for more than a year, Big Tech and its lackeys throughout our media have spread misinformation about Kyle Rittenhouse.... Well, they're not going to admit it, of course. ~ Tucker Carlson
In fact, under Wisconsin law, which apparently no one in any newsroom in America had even bothered to check, 17-year-olds are allowed to carry rifles as long as their barrels meet a minimum length requirement, and Kyle Rittenhouse’s rifle met that requirement.
  • In fact, under Wisconsin law, which apparently no one in any newsroom in America had even bothered to check, 17-year-olds are allowed to carry rifles as long as their barrels meet a minimum length requirement, and Kyle Rittenhouse’s rifle met that requirement. So no, Kyle Rittenhouse did not violate Wisconsin's gun laws. Today, even the prosecution at the trial was forced to admit that. And so immediately, the judge dismissed the firearms charge.
    ...He had not committed a gun crime, and that means that for more than a year, Big Tech and its lackeys throughout our media have spread misinformation about Kyle Rittenhouse. Well, that's embarrassing. What are they going to say? Well, they're not going to admit it, of course. They're going to make certain you don't learn about it.
    Just minutes after the judge in the case dismissed the gun charge, YouTube, which is owned by Google, censored the video streams of several independent legal experts who were commenting on the trial in real time. These were knowledgeable attorneys, many of whom were critical of the obvious weaknesses in the prosecution's case. Now, hundreds of people were watching those streams at the moment they were canceled, but over concern that Americans might conclude that Kyle Rittenhouse is innocent, YouTube shut them down, citing policy violations. In other words, God forbid people think for themselves. That's not allowed anymore. If you want to know what's happening in your world, you've got MSNBC to tell you.

  • Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges Friday after testifying he acted in self-defense in the deadly Kenosha shootings that became a flashpoint in the debate over guns, vigilantism and racial injustice in the U.S. Rittenhouse, 18, began to choke up, fell forward toward the defense table and then hugged one of his attorneys as he heard a court clerk recite “not guilty” five times. A sheriff’s deputy whisked him out a back door...
    “He wants to get on with his life,” defense attorney Mark Richards said. “He has a huge sense of relief for what the jury did to him today. He wishes none of this ever happened...”
    Richards... said that Rittenhouse wants to be a nurse and that he is in counseling for post traumatic stress disorder and will probably move away because “it’s too dangerous” for him to continue to live in the area.
    Going in, many legal experts said they believed the defense had the advantage because of provisions favorable to Rittenhouse in Wisconsin self-defense law and video showing him being chased at key moments. Testimony from some of the prosecution’s own witnesses also seemed to buttress his claim of self-defense.

  • Here are the facts that are important to me. Kyle Rittenhouse, who was a minor at the time, traveled from Illinois to Wisconsin, and picked up an assault rifle that was illegally purchased for him. He took the law into his own hands, killing two people and injuring another... I understand why people believe that justice was not served in this case, because I feel the same way. This ruling makes clear we have so much work to do to take on gun violence, and reform our broken criminal justice system so that it starts working equally and fairly for everyone.
    In Wisconsin, this judge has now ruled that it’s legal for a minor to walk the streets in Wisconsin with an assault weapon. If that is true, then our state legislature should take action now in a bipartisan way to change the law and make it illegal... To me that’s just common sense that most people in our state would agree with.
    The fact that some people are cheering a ruling that has allowed someone to take the law into his own hands and walk free from any accountability after shooting and killing two people is disrespectful to the lives that were lost, and I am deeply concerned that it will encourage more tragic gun violence from those like Kyle Rittenhouse who think they have a license to take the law into their own hands in a violent way.
  • Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum are victims. They should be alive today.
    The only reason they’re not is because a violent, dangerous man chose to take a gun across state lines and start shooting people.
    To call this a miscarriage of justice is an understatement.
  • Justice was served for #KyleRittenhouse and he is fully exonerated. As I said last year, obviously self-defense. I will arm wrestle @mattgaetz to get dibs for Kyle as an intern.
  • Richards blamed Pierce for incidents that included a trip Rittenhouse took to Miami.
    The meeting was supposed to have been with the leader of the Proud Boys.
    When Rittenhouse learned of the plan, he called his mother and departed the city, Richards said.
...based on all of the evidence and the law. It really was self-defense. Rittenhouse wasn’t the aggressor.... So where do we go from here? I certainly pray people won’t be emboldened by this verdict to show up with their guns every time there is a protest... But I fear some will. ... ~ [Mark Brown, ]
  • Many people are going to have trouble accepting the Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty verdict, but I think there would be fewer of them if they’d watched the trial, beginning to end, as a jury does. It bothers me deeply that Rittenhouse killed two people with a gun a 17-year-old shouldn’t have had in a fight he shouldn’t have been anywhere near. But, as I wrote before the jury began its 26-plus hours of deliberations, it’s the correct verdict based on all of the evidence and the law. It really was self-defense. Rittenhouse wasn’t the aggressor in the chain of events that led to the shootings... So where do we go from here? I certainly pray people won’t be emboldened by this verdict to show up with their guns every time there is a protest over a matter of public dispute. But I fear some will. Despite what people are saying, Rittenhouse’s acquittal should not be seen a victory for white supremacists...
Rittenhouse, among other charges, was on trial for killing Joseph Rosenbaum, a pedophile guilty of eleven counts of child molestation on five boys aged nine to eleven, including anal rape. ~ Benjamin Braddock
  • The Rittenhouse decision jeopardized every freedom fighter... Everyone who’s a demonstrator can be killed by a right-winger with[out] justification...We have the right, the constitutional right, to march... He has the constitutional right to object. He does not have the right to kill us... Nobody has the right to go across state lines [with] a loaded weapon, come back with a loaded weapon, shoot two people and then go home...
    Miracle Boyd, a youth organizer for the anti-violence group Good Kids Mad City, said Saturday that the jury’s verdict was a “miscarriage of justice.” “He’s the exact kind of person that the system was designed to protect — not my Black and Brown cousins,” Boyd said. “Trayvon Martin had skittles and an Arizona [Iced Tea] and was shot to death. Mr. Rittenhouse was a 17-year-old with an AR-15 as big as him, murdered two people and was sent scot-free... Let’s stop pretending like oppression and supremacy doesn’t exist,” Boyd said.
  • The acquittal of Rittenhouse follows a travesty of a trial in which a right-wing judge systematically undermined the prosecution by excluding all of the evidence that would have rebutted Rittenhouse’s claim that he was acting in “self-defense.”
    Kenosha County Circuit Court Judge Bruce Schroeder did not permit the jury to hear that after Rittenhouse posted bail, he celebrated the killings at a pub with top Proud Boys members, where he flashed “white power” signs, belted out the Proud Boys anthem and grinned for selfies with other Proud Boys members. Nor did the judge permit the jury to hear that before the shooting, Rittenhouse was recorded saying that he wanted to shoot people he thought were shoplifting. “Bro, I wish I had my f—ing AR,” he said. “I’d start shooting rounds at them.”
    The trial was a right-wing spectacle from beginning to end. At one point the judge, wearing an American flag tie, led the jury in a round of applause for one of Rittenhouse’s experts on the grounds that he was a “veteran” who “served our country.” At another point the judge’s cellphone rang with a Trump rally ring tone. At the end of the trial, he let Rittenhouse pick the jurors’ names out of a tumbler like it was a circus raffle....The argument that Rittenhouse was acting in “self-defense” turns reality upside-down. If anyone had a right to self-defense, it was the protesters who collectively confronted a right-wing vigilante who appeared at their protest pointing a loaded military-style rifle at them.... When Rittenhouse opened fire, Gaige Grosskreutz and other protesters believed that he was an “active shooter.” Like a soldier who jumps on a grenade to save his comrades, Anthony Huber pushed his girlfriend out of the way and charged Rittenhouse, armed only with a skateboard in an effort to protect the other protesters. Rittenhouse shot him dead.

  • The fact that white supremacists roam the halls of Congress freely and celebrate this little murderous white supremacist and the fact that he gets to walk the streets freely, it lets you know these people have access to instituting laws…they run the legislative branch…
  • Rittenhouse, among other charges, was on trial for killing Joseph Rosenbaum, a pedophile guilty of eleven counts of child molestation on five boys aged nine to eleven, including anal rape. That this pedophile was not already executed for these crimes — in fact, not even in jail for them — is evidence of a failed state that abdicated any right to a monopoly on the use of violence. If you need any further evidence, just look at what was allowed to happen in Kenosha before Rittenhouse put the fear of God into the rioters. Forty buildings burned to the ground and an additional hundred were damaged. Livelihoods destroyed and the local residents terrorized. They would have us forget our experience of Summer 2020, the tension and fear that hung in the air, knowing that dialing 911 no longer assured someone would show up to help. Americans were on their own. This was the reality of those months, staying up late watching riots unfold in real-time through internet live streams, wondering when this might come to our neighborhoods.
  • Only on MSNBC could a Hispanic teenager go out to defend an Indian car dealership from a mob of white rioters and get labeled a white supremacist
  • On August 25, 2020, a seventeen year old young man shot and killed two convicted felons to death and shot and disarmed another. It was all caught on livestream. Within two days, charges were filed against that young shooter for a flurry of offenses. On November 19, 2021, a jury acquitted that young shooter of all charges. The trial, both actual judicial proceedings and broader media persecution, of Kyle Rittenhouse was complete. Society now has to live with the consequences of our new era of political trial spectacles.
    He protected where his family lived, where he worked. He went and cleaned up the mess rioters made. He showed amazing cool under pressure and marksmanship to take out multiple attackers. He did it all alone with a mob chasing him. He shamed an entire group of people: right wingers. Someone finally stood up to the months’ worth of mobs and it was a kid. He became a folk hero overnight and energized an entire faction of America. Someone had finally said enough. Someone had finally stood their ground. He was the right’s boy, and they would defend his actions. It was all on tape, and he had defended his community and self. His instincts were all right and intentions were from the heart yet he was persecuted by our warped regime for it.
    Kyle became a folk hero. He was the very definition of one as a simple man who in a time of crisis did something good to defend order and community against the paramilitary forces of an evil regime. He shamed the right because beyond his actions, he revealed how powerless the right has become. The entire system arranged itself against him. Charges were slapped on him with an absurd bail amount despite years of the left crying about excessive bail and being pro-criminal. He had no legal defense fund infrastructure nor a legal network to automatically take up his cause. He had grifters and charlatans attach themselves to him and screw him over early. He withstood the attacks of the media for over a year, and there was not a thing the right could do in the supposed neutral media ecosystem. He stood alone once more because of all of the losses the right has sustained over the decades.
    This was a political show trial.

  • Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) introduced a bill on Tuesday to award Kyle Rittenhouse the Congressional Gold Medal for "protecting the community of Kenosha, Wisconsin, during a Black Lives Matter (BLM) riot on August 25, 2020... Kyle Rittenhouse deserves to be remembered as a hero who defended his community, protected businesses, and acted lawfully in the face of lawlessness. I’m proud to file this legislation to award Kyle Rittenhouse a Congressional Gold Medal," Greene said in a statement to The Hill. Conservatives have praised the jury’s not guilty verdict in a trial that has divided the nation along partisan lines, embracing the argument that Rittenhouse was acting in self-defense and intended to protect local businesses. The reaction has been different among Democrats... Civil rights activists have warned the verdict will encourage similar vigilante actions.
  • Three people were shot that night in Kenosha. All by the boy who said he was there to help. The boy with the gloves. Did he expect to get blood on his hands that night? Was Rittenhouse afraid when he fired his first shot, the moment he stepped out of the virtual and into the real? Certainly. But not as scared as the man he shot. Four times. And then stood over, as Joseph Rosenbaum bled from wounds in his head, arm, groin and back. He didn’t reach for his medical kit or call 9/11. He ran off into the night and called a friend, “I’ve just shot someone.” He kept going, harm on the run, shooting two more people, one in the heart and nearly blowing another’s arm off, before he was allowed by Kenosha cops to just slip away, back across the state line, to the safety of home in Antioch, Illinois.
    Fear pulled the trigger. Fear spread fear. Fear was the killer... How is it that the most armed society the world has ever known is also the most afraid?
    ...The killer becomes the celebrity. Like Achilles dragging Hector’s corpse around the walls of Troy, Rittenhouse the avenger makes the rounds, telling his story of righteous wrath... Republicans have dutifully introduced a resolution in the House calling for Shooter to be bestowed his victory laurels, the Congressional Gold Medal of Honor.

About victims Rosenbaum and Huber[edit]

  • We just spent a lot of time talking, getting to know one another, and laughing and joking around. He was a very animated person like that.
    He wasn’t down there as a rioter or a looter
    Why was he there? I have no answer. I ask myself that question every day.
    I did explain to him that things had gotten bad the last few days because he was not in town and did tell him explicitly not to go downtown.
    There was the mark where Joe had been laying.
    I put my hand in it, and my hand was wet with his blood and that’s when, again, I collapsed on the ground.
  • Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum are victims. They should be alive today.
    The only reason they’re not is because a violent, dangerous man chose to take a gun across state lines and start shooting people.
    To call this a miscarriage of justice is an understatement.
  • he'd been convicted of having sex with a minor, in 2002—who'd had it coming.
  • I took off the Black Lives Matter t-shirt I chose that night to blend in with the crowd and used it to stanch the wounds on the first shooting victim: Joseph Rosenbaum.
    "It's gonna be okay, bro," I told Rosenbaum. "We're gonna have a beer after this and laugh about it."
    It was hard to hear my voice over the sounds of Rosenbaum struggling to breathe and gargling blood instead.
    I arrived at the scene of the shooting. I tried to retrace my steps. There was no memorial for Rosenbaum or Huber.
