Police charge 17-year-old in Kenosha shootings, Twitter worries about civil war

Avatar

Police in Wisconsin charged a 17-year-old from Antioch, Illinois on Wednesday in connection with the shooting of three and the deaths of two protesters from the night before during riots in Kenosha.

“Wisconsin authorities issued an arrest warrant charging Kyle Rittenhouse with first-degree intentional homicide, Antioch Police said. He is in the custody of the Lake County Judicial System pending an extradition hearing to transfer him from Illinois to Wisconsin. Antioch is located about 15 to 20 miles from Kenosha, just across the state border,” says CNN.

Video from the scene the night before showed a group of protesters chasing a man, who appears to be Rittenhouse, down a street in Kenosha, before sending him to the ground and hitting him with a skateboard and kicking him.

The man then turns and shoots several times. One man was shot in the head, one in the stomach and another in the arm. The victims shot in the head and stomach both died.

Photos circulated on the internet purport to show at least one man amongst the protesters was armed with a handgun.

While the media is rushing to lynch Rittenhouse without a trial, at least one conservative has taken a strong stand for the youth, condemning authorities for not enforcing law and order.

“Kenosha devolved into anarchy because the authorities abandoned the people. Those in charge, from the governor on down, refused to enforce the law. They’ve stood back and watched Kenosha burn. Are we really surprised that looting and arson accelerated to murder?” said Tucker Carlson about the shootings.

Rittenhouse was with a group of people who say they were protecting private property. Kenosha has been the scene of widespread private and public property damage including the deliberate arson of Black-owned businesses, since the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man.

“How shocked are we that 17-year-olds with rifles decided they had to maintain order when no one else would?” Carlson said

Carlson also said he felt confident that the courts would be able to sort out whether what Rittenhouse is being charged with was justifiable under the circumstances or not.

Liberals went crazy accusing Carlson of inciting violence and conveniently ignoring the violence that progressives have been supporting throughout the U.S. in cities such as Minneapolis, Portland, Chicago, Louisville, New York, Washington, D.C. and St. Louis.

“I almost never get involved with hashtags focused on specific individuals, and don’t really go in for hashtags generally, but what Tucker Carlson is doing right now to incite mayhem and murder by roaming gangs of armed vigilantes absolutely requires Fox News to #FireTuckerCarlson,” said rabid liberal Seth Abramson.

The debate, and the violent tone that underlay the debate, is proof of a widening rift in America that has some conservatives openly worrying about a civil war that could result from politicians not enforcing law and order, and Americans taking the law into their own hands.

“Civil war is coming,” tweeted actor James Woods.

    If the fickle finger of blame needs pointing, then it needs to point at the Do Nothing Democrats and their Sycophantic Suck Up Media Hacks like Seth Abramsonofabitch.

    If the murderous rioters had raped or murdered Kyle, this same prosecutor would be giving them the key to the city!

    I am impressed that James Woods understands how the politicians and corrupt government has fostered and encouraged the troubles of our time in history! Although relatively peaceful right now, America has been embroiled in a civil war for a loge time now. It has been mostly a cold civil war raging from within the country, but it is a civil war all the same. Of course it will get much worse, because that is what the corrupt politicians and government (The Deep State) has always wanted all along. Americans are a peace loving people, but they will need to take a stand because no one will be unaffected by the turmoil…

    The kid was being pursued and the first guy to get shot was whacking him in the head with a skateboard trying to kill him..you can readily see that in the videos. The charges are not correct …he did not intentionally fire he was attacked first.Get your facts right!

    The War has already started, several years ago. The Marxist-Democrats are going to get more than what they wanted. The rabble they collect will be taken-out by those who will fight for our country.

    They should give the kid a medal for getting rid of at least 2 convicted criminals instead of making fools of themselves by charging him with a BS crime. It is in our CONSTITUTION(remember what that is) that “we the peoplw” have a right to protect ourselves, our family and our property.

    and we can thank that ahole from Kenya for bringing the pot to a boil with his BS after the good shooting in Ferguson, Missouri helped remove another criminal from the USA and showed how the media is complicit in running off with a lie and promoting riots.. remember black liars matter and of course we can not forget the democommie scum bags out on the west coast supporting the trash aholes in antifa allowing them to take over cities instead of hauling them to the landfill..

    So what you are telling me. If three men are beating me in an ally after chasing me down, and I reach under my wheelchair and produce my Glock and then shoot all three, (one being armed himself) I’m guilty of murder! No! Does not compute given the violent track record of these Marxists. They finally got a taste of their own crap and the Dems don’t like it! Granted, the kid should not have been there in the first place, but he has the right to self-defense. If the buttheads in charge would deal with these Antifa, BLM idiots, it wouldn’t have happened?

    I thought the 17 year old should get the Medal of Honor for standing up for right and doing what should be done. He was protecting himself from evil. I suppose it would have been alright if it was the other way around. The second class so called citizens causing all these problems need a nice rope in order to save on ammo. I’ve been saying for years we are headed for civil war since back when oslama started dividing the country more than it had been in 50 years
