(TheFreedomFlag.com)- Kyle Rittenhouse is the 17-year-old who drove to Kenosha with a shotgun where he helped defend local businesses from rioters and even offered medical assistance to far-left rioters who were hurt during the protests. He’s also the young man who shot three people during the riot, and while the media has gone into overdrive condemning him as a white supremacist murderer, court documents suggest it was actually self-defense.
A criminal complaint filed in Kenosha County against the teenager on Thursday shows that he acted in self-defense and didn’t fire the first shot. It’s a huge blow for far-left extremists who used the incident as an excuse to riot some more and claim Trump supporters are killing innocent people.
Even the New York Times, one of the most extreme-left newspapers in the country, was forced to admit the popular narrative is wrong. The paper published an analysis of videos of the event which show somebody fire a handgun into the air just moments before Rittenhouse fired a shot of his own.
Rittenhouse handed himself in to the police immediately after the incident and has since been charged with six criminal counts. They include first-degree intentional homicide, attempted first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree recklessly endangering safety, and first-degree reckless homicide. These are just charges for now.

In the criminal complaint, under the probable cause section, Assistant District Attorney Carli McNeill explained what appears to have happened based on the wealth of video footage proving he was being attacked.
“In the first video, a male who was later identified to be Kyle H. Rittenhouse … (hereinafter ‘the defendant’), is running southwest across the eastern portion of the Car Source parking lot,” the complaint reads. “Following the defendant is Rosenbaum and trailing behind the defendant and Rosenbaum is a male who was later identified as Richard McGinnis, a reporter.”
The complaint describes how “Rosenbaum appears to throw an object at the defendant.” A review of the second video, the report says, shows that the defendant and Rosenbaum “continue to move across the parking lot and approach the front of a black car parked in the lot.”
“A loud bang is heard on the video, then a male shouts, ‘F*ck you!’, then Rosenbaum appears to continue to approach the defendant and gets in near proximity to the defendant when 4 more loud bangs are heard. Rosenbaum then falls to the ground.”
The evidence shows that Rittenhouse, no matter what Black Lives Matter and Antifa activists say, was defending himself from people attacking him.
