For most cases of self-defense, police and prosecutors don’t have the benefit of much video evidence. Maybe some security camera footage or daschcam video. However, the prosecutors in Kenosha County, Wisconsin had a mountain of video evidence after the Kyle Rittenhouse shootings….and they chose to ignore most of it in their rush to file charges against him.
In response, Mr. Rittenhouse’s legal team has released an eleven minute video detailing the teen’s actions that night in order to allow everyday Americans to make their own conclusions.
The video, featuring some never-before-seen footage, destroys Kenosha District Attorney Michael Graveley’s attempt to inflict mob justice upon a 17-year-old good Samaritan. Working in a city that had been savaged by “mostly peaceful protesters,” Graveley appeared more concerned with his own well-being and avoiding the wrath of the mob than pursuing justice.
The video ridicules the fake news narratives about Rittenhouse and the shooting that have been promoted by the mainstream media and anti-self-defense politicians. Like this one from a Massachusetts Congresswoman:
A 17 year old white supremacist domestic terrorist drove across state lines, armed with an AR 15.
He shot and killed 2 people who had assembled to affirm the value, dignity, and worth of Black lives.
Fix your damn headlines.

Pressley’s world of make believe faced some pushback on Twitter.

And while individuals pushing back against people like Rep. Pressley have some impact, this video from Rittenhouse’s legal team does a much better job capturing the truth behind what happened that night. It does a great job helping to form public opinion in support of the youth from those who don’t know the specifics of the case.
How long YouTube leaves up that video up is anyone’s guess. They’ve already tagged it as “inappropriate or offensive to some audiences.”
Yes, imagine that: the truth flagged as inappropriate of offensive to some audiences.
Clearly this election continues to shape up as a choice between those favoring the rule of law and the Constitution versus those who support mob justice, censorship and dismantling the principles our nation was founded upon.
