Officer charged Kyle Rittenhouse on Wednesday after he took life a man.
Independent.co.uk told on 28th Aug 2020, Rittenhouse is said to have stood with other vigilantes in an attempt to guard local businesses against being vandalized.
Carlson suggested that the teen’s actions were to be expected after days of pr0tests that in some instances have turned roughness.
Carlson questioned. Rittenhouse was in custody in Antioch, Illinois, and according to court documents obtained by The New York Times, he faces at least one charge of first-degree intentional homicide.
Still, he’s being heralded by many on the far right as a hero. Hours before Carlson’s defense of the teen, author and pundit Ann Coulter tweeted that she wanted Rittenhouse as her president. Others have blamed his actions on local and state governments that they say refuse to enforce the law.
