[Daily Caller reporter Richard] McGinnis saw a male (Joseph] Rosenbaum) initially try to engage the defendant. … there were other people very quickly … moving towards the defendant. … the defendant [Rittenhouse] was trying to evade these individuals.
The first video starts with people already chasing Rittenhouse, one of whom throws something at him. One person even fires a handgun in the air — and another, Rosenbaum, charges at Rittenhouse, who shoots him. After that, there are more shots from an unknown source, and Rittenhouse calls a friend on his phone and leaves.
But again he’s pursued, with some protesters urging others to join in, and this time he falls down. Several people move in on him, and he takes shots at three, hitting two. One is holding a handgun and survives a shot to the arm; the other has a skateboard and dies. Again there are additional mysterious gunshots after the fact.
Quite typically for a U.S. state, Wisconsin allows civilian use of deadly force when one “reasonably believes that such force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm.”
Do put the Farm Art D’Tour on your schedule this upcoming week — September 26 to October 4. It’s part of Fermentation Fest in beautiful Sauk County.

Ann of Althouse’ top 4 reasons to vote Trump
1. He defeated ISIS! And he hasn’t gotten us into any new military adventures.
2. The Trump haters have gone so big for so long that it feels like extortion. I instinctively resist bullying.
3. The Democrats have given us a ridiculous candidate, a sort of mystery box. I don’t know what this entity is. Some composite of Democrats who will act through him?
4. The Democrats pressure us to follow orders from experts, not to understand the evidence and analysis. When it comes to questions involving race and gender — which seem to be all questions nowadays — they impose an ideological template about how human mind works without regard for any scientific method of analysis. I’m afraid of this irrationality presented as lofty learning, especially as it comes with a demand that we shut up and take orders.
