As violent rioters continue to destroy areas across the country, a teenager who tried to restore order, Kyle Rittenhouse, was arrested and has several felony charges stacking up against him.
Riots Keep Destroying Society
During riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, 17-year-old Rittenhouse shot at violent protesters in what seems like complete self-defense, but now he is facing a murder charge as well as 4 other felony charges.

Two of the rioters were shot fatally and a third was injured. As of Thursday, the Kenosha County District Attorney Michael Graveley filed charges against the teenager which includes on count of first-degree intentional homicide; two counts of first-degree reckless endangerment and one count of possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under 18, all felonies, according to court records obtained by Fox News.
If he is convicted, he will face a mandatory life sentence for what many believe was pure self-defense.
Obvious Self-Defense Actions from Rittenhouse
In a Tuesday protest of the shooting of Jacob Blake, a man shot in the back by police after he resisted arrest and allegedly went for a weapon, Rittenhouse was in the area armed with a Smith and Wesson AR-15 style rifle.
Video shows a rioter with a handgun chasing the teenager before shots were fired.
The lead attorney who represented Nick Sandmann has taken on Rittenhouse’s case pro bono and many who are on the teenager’s side applaud this effort at justice.

“I think any average citizen would know self-defense when they see it,” Wood told Fox News. “This young man was attacked. He was attacked with what was clearly lethal force. He had the right to defend himself.”
The prosecution against Kyle Rittenhouse is undoubtedly unjust. It is clear he acted in self-defense after being aggressively chased by violent anarchists, one carrying a pistol.

Americans Want Peace
Many Americans are sick and tired of having their lives, businesses, and families being terrorized by rioters and are standing beside Rittenhouse.
Conservative host Tucker Carlson made waves with Democrats when he pointed out the obvious.
Authorities “stood back and watched Kenosha burn,” he said on his Wednesday show. “So are we really surprised that looting and arson accelerated to murder? How shocked are we that 17-year-olds with rifles decided they had to maintain order when no one else would?”
Carlson echoes the sentiment of many who are witnessing the lawlessness BLM and ANTIFA mobs are inflicting on the United States.
With the felonies stacked against Rittenhouse, it is clear Democrats want to make an example out of him. An example to let the mob rule and not defend yourself or your neighborhood.
As time goes on and more evidence points to self-defense, many conservatives are hoping its enough to free Kyle Rittenhouse.
