If you already thought Kyle Rittenhouse was innocent this new video is really gonna cement your opinion.
- Kyle Rittenhouse's attorney Lin Wood released new video footage on Tuesday
- Rittenhouse, 17, is charged with intentional homicide in two fatal shootings
- He also shot and wounded a third protester who was wielding a handgun
- Teen's attorneys argue that all three shootings were clear-cut self-defense
- New footage shows unidentified gunshot before Rittenhouse opened fire
- He was being charged by protester and 'pinned' against parked cars, Wood says
- Case has become a political flashpoint and ignited heated partisan divide
The evidence is very clear: Kyle was acting in self defense. Not only was he being chased by an angry violent mob, he was also being shot at.
An organization raising funds for Kyle Rittenhouse's legal defense published a viral video that tells the truth about the 17-year-old accused of fatally shooting two men during the Jacob Blake riots in Kenosha.
#FightBack Foundation, a free speech group that has raised nearly $2 million in funding for Rittenhouse's legal fees,posted the 11-minute footage to several alternative, anti-Big Tech video sharing platforms. A downloadable version is available on the association's website.
"Every decade or so, a legal matter arises that holds the power to negatively affect our lives for generations to come," the video is prefaced. "Regardless of what side of the political spectrum you identify with, this is about you."
Scenes of the Kenosha riots overlayed the violent introduction, depicting arson, commercial grade fireworks used as projectiles in public streets, and trash receptacles pushed as barricades and ignitors.
"To prevent the total destruction of their communities, good Samaritans united to guard local businesses," the narrator continued, then naming Rittenhouse.
