Kyle Rittenhouse charged in shooting deaths of 2, wounding of 1 during Kenosha unrest

Kyle Rittenhouse, 17, is accused of killing two people and injuring a third person during protests in Kenosha, Wis., this summer.

Rittenhouse was charged in August with multiple counts, including reckless and intentional homicide, endangerment and being a minor in possession of a firearm. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that prosecutors added violating curfew the night of the shootings to the list of charges on Dec. 28. The offense is a civil citation punishable by forfeiture.

Prosecutors allege Rittenhouse, who is white, left his home in Antioch and traveled to Kenosha after learning of a call for militia to protect businesses in that city on Aug. 25. Kenosha was in the throes of several nights of chaotic street demonstrations after a white officer shot Jacob Blake, who is Black, in the back, leaving Blake paralyzed.

Rittenhouse opened fire with an assault-style rifle during the protest that night, killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber and wounding Gaige Grosskreutz. Rittenhouse has argued he fired in self-defense.

2. Hell, he could give him a 'My Pillow'

and Rittenhouse could use it to beat against the bars until they separate.

3. When you drive across state lines with an assault rifle you're too young to have

it's intentional. Self-defense, my ass. Little pisher has earned life in prison.
