Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager charged with homicide for shooting left-wing agitators in what he claims was self-defense while he was defending businesses from rioters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, was released Friday from law-enforcement custody after posting bail of $2 million.
He was slapped with first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide, and attempted first-degree intentional homicide in relation to the deaths of Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum during riots in Kenosha sparked by the police shooting of Jacob Blake. Huber and Rosenbaum died from their wounds; a third man shot by Rittenhouse survived.
“Kyle Rittenhouse’s bond was posted this afternoon at about 2:00 pm which was set up through his attorney,” said Kenosha County Sheriff’s Sergeant David Wright. “He is no longer in custody at the Kenosha County Jail.”
Earlier this month, 19-year-old Dominick Black was arrested and charged with allegedly purchasing the AR-15 that Rittenhouse used.
Black is accused of receiving money from Rittenhouse and “then on May 1st he drove 300 miles north from Kenosha to a hardware store in upper Wisconsin to buy the [AR-15],” per an affidavit.
In October, Illinois did not press charges against Rittenhouse for possession of the AR-15 because the rifle was allegedly “purchased, stored, and used” out of the Prairie State.
Rittenhouse had some help in posting the bail that got him out of custody. Actor Ricky Schroder and My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell both contributed to the cause.
As the New York Post notes:
More than $500,000 has been raised through a legal defense fund and through donations from high-profile supporters, WBBM said, including Lindell and Schroder, who first gained fame as a child actor in the 1979 classic “The Champ” — alongside Jon Voight — and TV’s “Silver Spoons” in the 80s.
Meanwhile, Rittenhouse’s release on bond didn’t sit well with John Huber, whose son was killed by Rittenhouse.
“He has people out there who will help him, organizations, militia groups raising money for his defense right now,” he said.
“He thinks he’s above the law. He’s been treated as such by law enforcement. He believes he’s justified in the case, and for him to run wouldn’t surprise me.”
Lin Wood, one of Rittenhouse’s lawyers, posted a photo on Twitter celebrating his client’s release on bail.
“FREE AT LAST!!!” Wood wrote on the post, which shows a Rittenhouse smiling between Schroder and attorney John Pierce.
Rittenhouse has understandably been demonized by the Left and the mainstream media, who have sought to sell a story that he attacked, unprovoked, innocent “peaceful protesters.” That narrative, of course, ignores the fact that the so-called protesters were attempting to loot and destroy public property. It also ignores the truth about Rittenhouse’s “victims.”
For example, Rosenbaum was a sexual offender who raped five boys. According to court records, he was imprisoned and made to register as a sex offender involved the molestation and rape of five separate boys between the ages of nine and 11.
The Left’s rioting has died down slightly since Joe Biden, according to the mainstream media, “won” the presidential election. But it’s possible they will start back up in full force if President Trump succeeds in stopping the fraud and securing another four years in the White House.
Some of that was seen recently in Washington, D.C., last weekend, when Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and other left-ring radicals terrorized women, children, the elderly, and minorities at the peaceful Million MAGA March held by Trump supporters to bring awareness to voter fraud in the presidential election.
In one incident, a black mother with her young children wearing a Blue Lives matter hat and a Trump jacket frantically told police she wanted to press charges against her assailants. They had cornered her and asked her why she had her children there. She was pushing a child in a stroller and shielding her pre-teen daughter when she was attacked.
So long as socialist terrorists are allowed to roam free, they will continue to prey upon the innocent while those who dare stand up to them, such as Kyle Rittenhouse, will be punished by left-wing politicians.
Patriots must fight on the political plane to keep control of the levers of government and law enforcement and must also seek to defund, not the police, but Antifa by stopping its financing by deep-pocketed leftists such as George Soros.
