Lets get some fact straights here shall we?
Mr. Rittenhouse was volunteering for the fire department and handing out medical aid to protestors the entire day and then put out a fire close to a gas pump. Doing his civic duty.
No because he was only 17. 17 year olds don’t become fire department members, EMTs or any other public safety role. He was not an official member of any public safety group authorised to be on the streets that night. He may have thought he was, but he wasn’t. EMTs also don’t carry AR15s in the course of their duties.
The mob got angry and start approaching him.
No evidence of what happened before this incident. There is anecdotal evidence that Rittenhouse the wannabe cop was pointing his weapon at people in cars, and at protesters on the street:https://www.fox13memphis.com/news/trend ... LPg6xPRglo Jeremiah told USA Today he was trying to get to his car when he came across Rittenhouse, who was among a group of armed men in the parking lot of Car Source, a used car dealership across the street from Froedtert South Kenosha Medical Center.
Unprompted, Rittenhouse aimed his rifle at the 24-year-old Black man. He began shouting at Jeremiah, who shouted back.
The problem is too many people are basing their opinions off the videos posted on social media as if they are the only record of the event. Far more important are the witness statements given that we are not privy to that would’ve led police to file murder charges. They give the story of what happened prior to the first video recording starting.
He retreats. After a shot was fired (Not by Rittenhouse) he ran.
After the first shooting Rittenhouse makes a phone call and runs right towards
, not away from, the people he is supposedly fleeing from in self defence
I suggest people and the media better not keep defaming Mr. Ritterhouse. Nick Sandman. Cough. Cough.
Rittenhouse has been charged with a crime, and media refer to his actions as alleged actions.
