Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year old charged with first-degree murder for shooting three people and killing two in what supporters say was a self-defense incident during leftist race riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, was interviewed prior to the incident by journalist Elijah Schaffer.
Rittenhouse presented himself as a citizen concerned with helping people and providing order, which law enforcement has woefully failed to do.
“He did not make racist comments, condemn #BLM, or mention political motivations for his actions,” wrote Elijah Schaffer. “He said that he was there to protect property & was carrying a firearm.”

One of the men police say was fatally shot by a 17-year-old boy brandishing a rifle during the Kenosha, Wisconsin, riots was recently revealed as a convicted pedophile.
Joseph Rosenbaum, also known as “Jojo,” 36, was allegedly shot in the head by Kyle Rittenhouse in a shooting that was caught on camera from multiple after an argument emerged when the teenager traveled about 10 miles to Kenosha to protect local businesses from looting and to provide medical aid to those who needed it.
Rosenbaum, a father of a two-year-old girl, according to USA News Posts, was one of three gunshot victims–two of which were fatal–in the incident.
Internet sleuths later revealed that Rosenbaum was a convicted pedophile after a conviction for sexual conduct with a minor from December 2002 came to light as the pasts of those involved were dredged up following the ensuing chaos to find control over the narrative.
