On Friday, actor Ricky Schroder and My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell have helped get Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse out of jail on a $2 million bond, according to a report. You see? Not everyone in Hollywood is a total piece of human debris.
Rittenhouse, who is facing murder charges for the August 25 shooting during Black Lives Matter (BLM) protests in the Wisconsin city, where he clearly, legally defended himself, posed for a photo with the “NYPD Blue” actor after the bond was posted by his lawyers on Friday, according to CBS affiliate WBBM-TV.
Lin Wood, who represented Nick Sandmann in a lawsuit against major news networks and others for putting the underage young man into harm’s way for doing absolutely nothing wrong, is one of Rittenhouse’s lawyers, posted the photo in a tweet a little before 9 pm.
“FREE AT LAST!!!” Wood wrote on the post, which shows a smiling Rittenhouse standing between Schroder and attorney John Pierce.
“Thank you; All Donors. Thank you, All Patriots. Thank God Almighty.”
Rittenhouse, of Antioch, Illinois, said that he acted in self-defense when he shot and killed protesters Anthony Huber, 26, and Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and wounded a third man while working with a group trying to help people in distress during riots sparked by the police shooting of Jacob Blake. Video evidence shows that Rittenhouse was fired at first, and when he did shoot his rifle, each time was in self-defense.
Blake was shot seven times by Kenosha police during a domestic disturbance, after he refused to obey police commands by continuing to walk around his vehicle, opened the driver-side door and reached for something knowing all the officers were behind him shouting for him to stop. He later admitted he had a knife where he was reaching. His shooting ignited anti-police riots in Kenosha.
Rittenhouse went back to Illinois because so many rioters were trying to kill him, and he surrendered himself to police in Illinois the following day. The teenager was extradited over to Wisconsin to face criminal charges.
Conservatives have taken a liking to Rittenhouse, because he went to Kenosha to help protect people and businesses from the rioting. He is a trained and helped people who were hurting during the riots. Rioters started setting fires in dumpsters and the dumpsters were then used to set businesses on fire. Rittenhouse was seen in video footage running toward one dumpster fire with a fire extinguisher trying to put out the fire. That’s when thugs, criminals, and rioters started attacking him. He was ruining their good time. Fake News doesn’t want you to know that shots rang out aimed at Rittenhouse by a rioter. That too is on video.
Here’s a video where Rittenhouse was running to get police and was attacked.
According to WBBM, over half a million dollars was raised from a legal defense fund and by taking in donations from high-profile supporters. Those high profile folks included Lindell who is famous for his pillow company, and who converted his manufacturing plant to make coronavirus masks, and the actor Schroder, who first was a child actor start in the 1979 movie “The Champ” and later became famous acting on the television show “Silver Spoons” in the 1980s.
John Hubert, whose son was killed by Rittenhouse, wasn’t all that thrilled.
“He has people out there who will help him, organizations, militia groups raising money for his defense right now,” he said.
And the rioters like his son had people out there like Kama Harris and Hollywood leftists who donated large sums of cash to help bail them out so that they could go back onto the streets to cause some more mayhem and havoc.
“He thinks he’s above the law. He’s been treated as such by law enforcement. He believes he’s justified in the case, and for him to run wouldn’t surprise me.”
Kyle Rittenhouse does not think he’s above the law. For goodness’ sake there are multiple videos that show his life was in danger, and he only fired when absolutely necessary.
