‘Rittenhouse is chased … an unknown gunman fires into the air’

‘Another pursuer lunges toward him’

A New York Times analysis of Kyle Rittenhouse’s actions Tuesday 08-25-2020:


Mr. Rittenhouse walks up to a police vehicle carrying his rifle and talks with the officers. He eventually leaves the dealership and is barred by the police from returning. Six minutes later footage shows Mr. Rittenhouse being chased by an unknown group of people into the parking lot of another dealership several blocks away.

While Mr. Rittenhouse is being pursued by the group, an unknown gunman fires into the air, though it’s unclear why. The weapon’s muzzle flash appears in footage filmed at the scene.

Mr. Rittenhouse turns toward the sound of gunfire as another pursuer lunges toward him from the same direction. Mr. Rittenhouse then fires four times, and appears to shoot the man in the head.

Mr. Rittenhouse seems to make a phone call and then flees the scene. Several people chase him, some shouting, “That’s the shooter!” As Mr. Rittenhouse is running, he trips and falls to the ground. He fires four shots as three people rush toward him. One person appears to be hit in the chest and falls to the ground. Another, who is carrying a handgun, is hit in the arm and runs away.

Mr. Rittenhouse’s gunfire is mixed in with the sound of at least 16 other gunshots  that ring out during this time. …

Mr. Rittenhouse walks with his hands up toward the police vehicles. Bystanders call out to the officers that he had just shot people. The police drive by him without stopping, on their way to assist the victims.

    As a ‘Nam vet, I can assure you that if Kyle had shot the perv in the head with the AR-15, it would have blown his head off. It would have resembled “Lefty’s” bicep. It would looks like a round from a pistol the other rioters were shooting, probably at Kyle.

    “As Mr. Rittenhouse is running, he trips and falls to the ground. He fires four shots as three people rush toward him.” That’s way too vague. Let’s try, “As Mr. Rittenhouse is running, he trips and falls to the ground. He gets kicked by one rioter. Rittenhouse then gets viciously beaten with a skateboard by a second attacker, and he fires into the assailant’s torso. A third attacker runs at Rittenhouse aiming a pistol, and Rittenhouse defends himself by shooting the attacker in arm.” No way the elements of a murder charge can be met.

      As I said in another post – I think a strong case can be made that all three of the “protesters” were brain-dead PRIOR to being shot. If any “Antifas” out there have a video game where you can deflect 5.56 NATO rounds with a skateboard, please, return it and get your money back. Seriously, where do they come up with this? Antifa school? YouTube? Internet? ( if it’s on the internet it HAS to be true, – right?)

    From quite a few other VIDs, B4 and after any shots, it’s obvious that Rittenhouse is in danger. Initially he’s pursued by a guy (red bandana on his head) much larger than he is, and gets cornered between vehicles. We don’t know what transpired there (no video) but I assume a beatdown of Kyle was gonna happen. After hitting the fellow, he gets on his ‘phone ASAP to call 911 (I assume, but fer sure he wasn’t callin’ his mom…). Then the group there, and from the other side pursue him again. Then he’s fallen and at a disadvantage -idiots think they’ll just “take him down”…. Then: Mess around, get messed -this wasn’t a video game.

    BTW, Jacob Blake has surpassed 1 million in donations. Gotta wonder who’ll step FWD fer Kyle’s legal fees.

    This is really a shame because the rioters are clearly operating under a new set of rules that says the actual facts do not matter. Just like the initial shooting in Kenosha, the Dems have issued their narrative of the facts in real time, from hundreds of miles away. Days after the AG confirmed that the shooter WAS in fact armed, they were still holding on the story of an unarmed man getting shot 7 times in the back. Idiots are still writing in to the paper demanding that the cop be fired and charged with murder. They are blind and delusional.
