Kyle Rittenhouse – The Truth in 11 Minutes Video

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- On 22 September, 2020, a powerful video put out by #FightBack, was published on Youtube, with a mirror site on Bitchute.

This is a review of the 11 minute video. I give it 4.5 stars.  #FightBack is collecting funds for Kyle Rittenhouse's defense. From Fightback.law:

 Fightback.law is a Texas 501(c)(4) not-for-profit organization established to promote social welfare through advocacy and just treatment of people and organizations with respect to their civil and constitutional rights.

In case the youtube video is taken down (social media is reported as saying kyle is a “mass killer”, here is a  mirrored bitchute link.  It has been reported that giant tech companies such as facebook, youtube and twitter are taking down videos and tweets which are in defense of Kyle Rittenhouse.

Several attempts to create sites for funding at GoFundMe and other sites were taken down very quickly.  Eventually, prominent attorney Lin Woods was able to put up a site which has stayed up. About 1. 8 million has been dedicated to Kyle Rittenhouse's defense at this #Fightback.law.

The video is extremely well done. It uses phone video clips from the riots in Kenosha to show Kyle Rittenhouse's actions and place them in context at the time they occurred. There is a good clip of an interview with reporter Richard McGinnis. McGinnes is the witness who was closest to Kyle Rittenhouse and Joseph Rosenbaum, when Rosenbaum, a convicted child molester, attacked Rittenhouse and attempted to disarm him.

Many clips which have not seen much distribution are in the video, such that recorded by Gaige Grosskreutz, the last person who Kyle Rittenhouse shot, as Grosskreutz lunged at Rittenhouse with a semi-automatic pistol in his hand.

Grosskreutz is pursuing Rittenhouse, live streaming on his phone. He asks Kyle: “Did you shoot someone?”

Rittenhouse says, while running, “I am going to the police.” Only a few seconds later, Kyle trips and goes down.

There are timely reminders of what was going on with the riots around the country before the Rittenhouse was attacked. There is a plausible explanation of why the first person who attacked Kyle may have picked him as a victim. The graphics are very well done. The voiceover is excellent. Information is presented, which has not been revealed before.

Who fired the first shot when Kyle is being chased? This video identifies the man with the handgun.

I especially like the split-screen identification of the people who attacked Kyle. There is an excellent video of Kyle attempting to surrender to police at the scene.

If you want to understand what happened in Kenosha that night, watch this video.

The video does a good job of showing the charges against Kyle. No charges have been made against the people who attacked Kyle.  They are on video committing serious crimes. See the video. It is one of the best synopsis of what happened.

Don't expect a detailed legal analysis. It is not in the video. Perhaps a detailed analysis of the legal battle will be published later. Some of that has been done elsewhere. We will get more, I am sure.

In my not so humble opinion, having watched an entire company being held down by snipers in Kansas City in1968, I continue to be of the opinion that all rioters and looters should be shot. Those idiots at Kent State University got what they deserved. Unless you are a rioter or a member of those there to safeguard property, get the hell out of the area! You don’t belong there! If you are stupid enough to be anywhere near a riot you deserve what you get. The first thing that gets thrown should caution you that things are turning deadly.… Read more »

i joined the military at 17. the difference is the military is highly disciplined and you get 6 weeks of 24/7 training.
it’s not really fair to lump a few idiots in with peaceful protestors. the cause is just and systemic racism is a real thing.

is there is a reason this CHILD was separated from the rest of his group? CAUSE HE WAS AN OVERZEALOUS IMMATURE WANNABE CHILD and should NOT have had a weapon in the first place! did the boyfriend in KY have a right to defend himself when the cops busted his door down WITHOUT declaring they were the police? BTW he was a legal gun owner and that also means the boyfriend WAS NOT a criminal and had no reason to shoot at the police. please make your responses germane to the question(s).

I’ll take a shot at it. FYI, Rittenhouse is being tried as an adult and not as a juvenile (Child). Rittenhouse was separated from the group due to poor or no training as a team and lack of leadership. If they had been properly trained no one would have been allowed to go anywhere alone. Rittenhouse is 17 and is the minimum age for call up as an unorganized militia member. (a)The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years… Read more »

thanks for not attacking me personally for my opinion! prior to the child being charged as an adult he shot and killed two people and injured another. my point in calling him a child is this particular child doesn’t appear to have the mental fortitude or discipline to have even been on this scene as evidenced by him being separated from his group. wisconsin has a law that governs who they allow to be in possession of a deadly weapon: Open carry is legal anywhere concealed carry is legal. It is legal for all adults unless they are prohibited from… Read more »

IMOA, This statement should apply to Rittenhouse’s practical application phase of his self defense predicament.
“when the dangerous weapon is being used in target practice under the supervision of an adult or in a course of instruction in the traditional and proper use of the dangerous weapon under the supervision of an adult.”

Nope, the exception.

Wisconsin state law 948.60(2)(a) states: “Any person under 18 years of age who possesses or goes armed with a dangerous weapon is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor.” However, the exception is: “when the dangerous weapon is being used in target practice under the supervision of an adult or in a course of instruction in the traditional and proper use of the dangerous weapon under the supervision of an adult.”

he was alone and unsupervised. the law is pretty clear that the minor needs to be supervised in all examples stated. it’s really hard to even ponder why he was alone at any point even if he was an adult. a very poor choice tactically regardless of if his supervisor stationed him that way.

Rittenhouse went to put out the dumpster fire set by the violent mob and the mob jumped him and there’s video showing the mob setting fire to a dumpster and pushing it towards the gas station being protected by a group of armed men and militia members, which included Rittenhouse.
The violent mob then took it upon themselves to try and grab for his weapon and ended up separating Rittenhouse from the others and forced him to use his weapon in self defense in multiple attacks.

still…the undisciplined, untrained, armed, zealot, gun fanatic, gaggle of pseudo “patriots” allowed the child off on his own unsupervised. thus making the exception to any law moot. how it will play in court? historically, he will probably be fine and sell the gun he used to murder others on ebay for thousands. imagine how different it would be if he just stayed home and played COD instead of playing “army man” IRL.

Actually my takeaway is Rittenhouse acted in self defense in all three shootings and will be found not guilty.

he will be found not guilty because…well you know…wink wink! the law is he shouldn’t have been there with any weapon. and if he followed the law u and i would not be having this discussion as civil as it has been (seriously cudos for not putting it on that level) i still would rather be doing anything but.

The burden of proof will be entirely on the state prosecuting attorney.

Well regulated means the militia members equipment and weapons are to be in good condition or to be well kept. Remember the militia members were called to muster together at a central location and were required to bring their weapons and equipment with them.
As the multiple videos Rittenhouse’s weapon was “Well regulated”, was it not?

Dr. Robert J. Cottrol is the editor of the book “Gun Control and the Constitution: Sources and Explorations on the Second Amendment.” And Cottrol, a Second Amendment expert and legal historian, is the Harold Paul Green Research Professor of Law at George Washington University. He says the words “well regulated” refer to proficiency and top-notch training.
 we can only go by the words in the four corners of the document. well equipped is not the same in any sense of the word.

The phrase “well-regulated” was in common use long before 1789, and remained so for a century thereafter. It referred to the property of something being in proper working order. Something that was well-regulated was calibrated correctly, functioning as expected. The following are taken from the Oxford English Dictionary, and bracket in time the writing of the 2nd amendment: 1709: “If a liberal Education has formed in us well-regulated Appetites and worthy Inclinations.” 1714: “The practice of all well-regulated courts of justice in the world.” 1812: “The equation of time … is the adjustment of the difference of time as shown… Read more »

even still it says a well regulated “militia” not “arms”. there is no way that you can say the clusterfuk of people on the scene that night were in any way well regulated to allow the child off on his own. again making it not apply to this situation. they would have had to demonstrate discipline and that they definitely did not!

Wow, Even after you’ve been given proof that “Well regulated” refers to equipment to include “Arms”, you’re still trying to pass it off as “Training” of the unorganized militias? When the unorganized militias were called up they were responsible to bring their “Well regulated” equipment or their version of Table of Organization and Equipment with them. The militias were required to be self sufficient for a short period of their stay.
Training came later in the call up when all militia members were assembled.

i showed you “proof” that it meant something else. if u want to interpret the constitution verbatim it says nothing about the equipment they carry and refer to the “militia”. you or i weren’t there and our best guess is what we believe. i happen to believe something different than the way you see it. doesn’t make us bad people.

It has been proven false that the police did not break the door down without announcing they were police. There was a neighbor that said they did announce they were police. the police did not fire till fired upon. Verdict is in on that so you can read the truth. & who says Rittenhouse should not have a weapon? We used to be able to buy them at 16.

Problem is, it’s he said she said at this point on whether LEO’s announced their entry.

In the immediate aftermath of the shooting, former LMPD Chief Steve Conrad said there was no body camera footage to share from the shooting.
“This incident was related to the execution of a search warrant by members of our Criminal Interdiction Division, and some of the officers assigned to this division do not wear body-worn video systems,” he said.

actually the neighbor you refer to initially claimed not to have heard the police state that they were in fact police prior to initiating their “no knock warrant”. it also was alleged that the police on the scene made efforts to cover up their actions. it was only after several “interviews” did that particular neighbor change his statement to reflect the current “story”. keep in mind that kenneth walker (thanks for his name get out) was in possession of his weapon legally. as a law abiding citizen i know if the police made their presence known there would be no… Read more »

Yes, of course there’s a reason. Rittenhouse was singled out by Rosenbaum who went after him. Rittenhouse ran from Rosenbaum, that’s why he was alone.

IMOA, Rittenhouse should be requesting a speedy trial so that this video and others can be shown to the judge, jury and the entire world that he acted in self defense. Rittenhouse should be freed and cleared of all charges. Rittenhouse’s lawyer should sue all of his attackers, anyone involved and any identified leaders that put the protest together since it turned violent.
