On Wednesday, Aug 26, 2020, seventeen-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse was arrested and charged with first-degree intentional homicide, after what appears to be justified shooting of three BLM rioters in Kenosha, Wisconsin killing two and wounding third.
Enough is enough.
After seeing the videos, renowned attorney Lin Wood pledged to make sure that Kyle Rittenhouse gets the best legal representation possible. As he’s not a criminal defense lawyer, Wood is using his colleague at #FightBack Foundation John Pierce, to assemble a legal team to defend Kyle Rittenhouse.

These charges must be dismissed as video clearly shows justified acts of self-defense. When dismissed, accusers should be held accountable & they should pay.
According to a recent news release, attorney John Pierce of Pierce Bainbridge LLP announced the firm would represent Rittenhouse.
If you’re interested in donating a couple of bucks to Kyle Rittenhouse defense found, #FightBack Foundation launched a website where they accept donations. The #FightBack Foundation is the only approved fund for Rittenhouse’s legal fees.

So far, it looks like Kyle is going to have top of the line defense team with John Pierce as a leading lawyer, and with more facts coming out, his situation looks better and better.
Pierce has released a statement about this unfortunate situation.
A seventeen-year old child should not have to take up arms in America to protect life and property. That is the job of state and local governments. However, those governments have failed, and law-abiding citizens have no choice but to protect their own communities as their forefathers did at Lexington and Concord in 1775. Kyle is not a racist or a white supremacist. He is a brave, patriotic, compassionate law-abiding American who loves his country and his community. He did nothing wrong. He defended himself, which is a fundamental right of all Americans given by God and protected by law. He is now in the crosshairs of institutional forces that are much more powerful than him. But he will stand up to them and fight not only for himself, but for all Americans and their beloved Constitution. We will never leave his side until he is victorious in that fight.
On Friday, Pierce obtained a several-week continuance of Kyle extradition hearing to Sept 25. We should expect much more from Pierce’s team soon.
Was it self-defense? Looks like it.
Watch a good analysis of the shooting done from a lawyer’s point of view.

Main (bad) actors.
Andy Ngô has twitted short information on those involved in the alleged attack on Kyle Rittenhouse. According to Andy, they all have a criminal record.
Friend of Gaige Grosskreutz in his Twitter update mentioned that:
Gaige regrets not being able to kill the teen.
Should we understand that he intended to kill Kyle and is angry at himself for not doing so?
I think Gaige should thank God that “the teen” isn’t one of the mental patients who ware free-roaming in the streets that night and spare his life.
The last thought.
From what I was able to find out, Kyle Rittenhouse was a part of a bigger group of men who intended to protect people and property from rioters. So far, so good. I’m entirely for protecting people and property from destruction by a violent mob.
BUT, now is the question:
Why Bunch of adult men brought a MINOR (Kyle Rittenhouse is 17 years old) to a fricking riot?
I don’t care how proficient with firearms he is. I don’t care how tough he is. I don’t even care if he could kick my ass. He is a MINOR. He should NOT be there.
His day should end after his shift as a lifeguard and work he’s done later that day, cleaning graffiti from a local school’s walls. Unfortunately for many people, that wasn’t the case. And now, no matter what, his and many other lives will never be the same.
