Kyle Rittenhouse bravely defended himself against the aggression of an angry mob on the night of August 25. The 17-year-old man used justifiable self-defense against three attackers who were chasing the teenager down like prey. Due to the unfortunate political climate, Rittenhouse has been kept unjustly in jail, having just been extradited to Wisconsin. Given that Rittenhouse’s self-defense against three attackers is on video, it’s unlikely that any jury in the world would convict him of the two charges of homicide and one charge of attempted homicide leveled against him.
But today, Rittenhouse has been released from jail after American patriots and fair-minded fellow citizens raised two-million dollars to post his bail.
Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Sgt. David Wright told the press that the huge bond was paid by his attorney. It was funded by outraged Americans who were incensed that the teen was being treated as a criminal when all he did was shoot actual criminals who were trying to kill him.
One of Rittenhouse’s lawyers, John M. Pierce, said previously that the bail money would come entirely from funds raised by a nonprofit that champions conservative causes led by another of the teen’s attorneys, L. Lin Wood. In a tweet Friday celebrating Rittenhouse’s release, Wood thanked actor Ricky Schroder and a Minnesota businessman allied with President Donald Trump for “putting us over the top.”
Rittenhouse is due back in court on Dec. 3 for a preliminary hearing.
