In the early hours of Wednesday morning, a 17-year-old white male named Kyle Rittenhouse opened fire on a crowd of Black Lives Matter protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, killing two and injuring one.
The fatal shootings took place during a third night of protests following the shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man who was shot seven times in the back by police officer Rusten Sheskey on Sunday. Blake is now paralyzed from the waist down.
Rittenhouse has been charged with first-degree intentional homicide and first-degree reckless homicide.
Kyle Rittenhouse’s Victims
Kyle Rittenhouse was arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree homicide on Wednesday in connection with the shooting deaths of two men during a Kenosha, Wisconsin, protest against police brutality.
Rittenhouse, a 17-year-old from Antioch, Illinois, allegedly shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26. A third man, Gaige Grosskreutz, 26, was shot in the arm and is expected to survive.
Rittenhouse has been widely derided as a white supremacist by protesters and commentators, due in part to his appearance at the Kenosha protest carrying an AR-15 rifle and wearing a T-shirt with the words “frontline worker” scrawled across the front.
However, some conservative commentators have sought to paint Rittenhouse as a law-abiding gun owner who was merely exercising his Second Amendment rights.
On Thursday night, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson weighed in on the shooting, claiming that Rittenhouse “didn’t kill anyone that he shouldn’t have.”
“How exactly are we supposed to feel about what happened last night?” Carlson asked. “This kid went to Kenosha to help protect small businesses from looters and got shot in the arm for it.”
Fox News’ Coverage
Fox News has been providing extensive coverage of the shooting of three protestors by Kyle Rittenhouse in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The network has been heavily criticized for its handling of the story, with many accusing it of downplaying Rittenhouse’s actions and painting him in a sympathetic light.
In one instance, Fox host Sean Hannity compared Rittenhouse to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, saying that “like them, he believed in defending liberty.” Hannity also said that Rittenhouse “acted heroically” and that he was “very afraid for his own safety.”
Other Fox personalities have made similar comments. Tucker Carlson said that Rittenhouse was “ignored by police” and “treated like a criminal” even though he was “trying to maintain order.” Laura Ingraham said that Rittenhouse was simply “exercising his Second Amendment rights.”
Critics have accused Fox of downplaying the violence of Rittenhouse’s actions and giving him a platform to continue to spread his far-right views.
In conclusion, we do not know for certain who Kyle Rittenhouse shot. We do know that he shot three people, two of whom died. We also know that he has been arrested and charged with multiple counts of homicide.
