Kenosha shooter, Kyle Rittenhouse, testified in his defense on the seventh day of trial stand for the shooting that killed two people and injured one person during the last year’s riots.
18-year-old Rittenhouse broke into tears while testifying about the triple shooting and speaking of his victims, killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and wounded Gaige Grosskreutz, 27.
“Do you think what you’re doing is the best thing under all the circumstances?” the teen was asked before the testimony got underway.
“Yes, your honor,” Rittenhouse replied.

Rittenhouse, who was 17-year-old when he killed two men, said he acted in an attempt to protect the local businesses as the riots broke out on August 25, 2020, in Kenosha. Rittenhouse used a semi-automatic rifle to shoot at the rioters.
No one knows what a jury will do, but all reasonable people can see that Kyle Rittenhouse is innocent and this prosecution is a sham.— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) November 10, 2021
GoFundMe decided that he didn't even deserve a defense.
That's our great "adversary system of justice."
The teen killer faces six criminal charges, including intentional homicide for the fatal shootings.

Kyle Rittenhouse did not point his rifle at Gaige Grosskreutz while his hands were up. Simply not true. Gaige Grosskreutz' testimony is not supported by the evidence pic.twitter.com/qPWPvP9lBg— Jack Posobiec ???????? (@JackPosobiec) November 8, 2021
