Let's face it: Kyle Rittenhouse went to Wisconsin to hunt.
He killed two people there, and is charged with first-degree intentional homicide.
Rittenhouse lived in Illinois. He had no business in Wisconsin, let alone taking an semi-automatic rifle there as a 17-year old. Crossing state borders was itself a crime -- he was only 17 -- and it also speaks to motive. He wasn't contracted by any business to guard it -- he lied about that. He took a gun to use it, like a deer hunter carries a gun into the forest.
Rittenhouse is charged with attempted intentional homicide in the wounding of a third. He’s also facing a misdemeanor charge of underage firearm possession for wielding a semi-automatic rifle. He faces life in prison.
He's no hero. He first shot a man in the head at a gas station. That's why others were chasing him. They were the heroes.
The police handled him with kid gloves, practically as one of their own. That deserves investigation too.
And some people wonder why the left is suspicious of the police.
