Gaige Grosskreutz, the surviving Antifa attacker, admits that Rittenhouse only fired when Grossreutz pointed his gun at him and advanced on him.
That's when Rittenhouse "disarmed" him, so to speak ...
So this helps Rittenhouse from being convicted of First Degree Murder....
If I understand things correctly, Rittenhouse killed Rosenbaum ( described by another armed self appointed ‘defender’, albeit one with actual experience as not an actual threat to anyone) and then fled. Rittenhouse was pursued by various individuals who sought to apprehend a person who killed another person. Rittenhouse then killed Huber and then shot at and struck Grossreutz, wounding but not killing him.
From the perspective of Grossreutz and Huber, (and others pursuing Rittenhouse)they were attempting to apprehend an individual who had just murdered another person.
I cannot imagine how anyone thinks that Rittenhouse was justified in shooting the last two victims, who, admittedly were playing police officer as had Rittenhouse been doing.
Imagine that instead of killing a man, Rittenhouse had just rubbed a bank. Would anyone think that he was then justified in killing those who gave chase?
Of course not. They would be considered heroes for trying to stop a bank robber. Rittenhouse would get zero pass at shooting at them, killing one man and disabling the other man.
Instead, Rittenhouse killed a man others saw as no threat, fled and…he gets a pass for shooting two of the people pursuing who they thought (correctly) had just killed a man?
A human life is expendable but stealing from a bank is not justifiable? Is that what we’re saying?
