Kyle Rittenhouse Charged With Murder After Killing Two BLM Protesters In Kenosha August 26, 2020

Domestic Terrorism: Kyle Rittenhouse, a 17-year-old member of a right-wing militia, has been charged with murder after killing two Black Lives Matter protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

WTVO reports:

Kyle Rittenhouse, 17, of Antioch, Illinois, was charged with first degree murder after killing two people and injuring another during unrest on the streets of Kenosha Tuesday night.

The Daily Beast reports:

Kyle Rittenhouse, a rifle-toting teenage Blue Likes Matter fan suspected of fatally shooting at least two people and injuring another during protests in Kenosha over the shooting of Jacob Blake, has been charged with murder.

Rittenhouse, 17, was arrested in Illinois and faces charges of first-degree intentional homicide, according to Lake County, Illinois Clerk of Courts public records.

In the complaint Rittenhouse is labeled as a “fugitive from justice.” The complaint states: “(Rittenhouse) fled the state of Wisconsin with intent to avoid prosecution for that offense.” 

The teen has been assigned a public defender and is scheduled to appear at an extradition hearing on Aug. 28, according to court records.

TMZ explains the back story:

A man — who witnesses described as being part of a vigilante militia group — with a long gun brazenly walked down a street in Kenosha, Wisconsin Tuesday night and began firing his weapon at people protesting the police shooting of Jacob Blake, killing 2, and incredibly walking right past a swarm of cops who let him go into the night.

Indeed, in video evidence it does appear that Rittenhouse attempts to surrender himself to police after killing two of his victims and wounding a third, but the police do nothing. The Independent reports:

Video footage from the event showed a gunman in the middle of the street brandishing a semi-automatic rifle before firing off the shots that hit multiple people. Eye witnesses then said the gunman was allowed to walk past police without getting arrested. In one video, protesters are heard shouting at police that he was the gunman as the officer drove by to attend to the victims.
