Closed case right here. Being chased by an angry mob who is throwing things at you and shooting at you is definitely cause to defend yourself with lethal force. Cops he ran up to afterwards probably told him to go home.

...and lawyer up.

Supposedly, Lin Wood wants to represent him.

ModernKnight 9 points ago +9 / -0

This is confirmed, Lin Wood's team has been in contact with Kyle's family, and will represent him for free.

Yeah but you know when he's acquitted they're going to run a whole cycle about how justice wasn't served here because the kid didn't allow the mob to beat him to death.

Viewer01 8 points ago +8 / -0

In a just world he wouldn’t have to go on trial.

fullshiningorange 4 points ago +4 / -0

Then we will begin this cycle anew.

someguy5 14 points ago +14 / -0

The real question is why so MANY people are arguing against this. If this isn't self defense, nothing is.

20KAG20 11 points ago +11 / -0

Pretty simple really. They are un-American pieces of shit that don't want us to fight back. 99.9% of them are Biden voters.

someguy5 5 points ago +5 / -0

You're right. FUCK. It's so infuriating. Cause there's nothing we can do. We have to abide by the laws and they don't. They literally want to attack us and have us arrested if we fight back.

fullshiningorange 9 points ago +9 / -0

As it's been said on here so many times: "do not forget that these people want you broke, dead, your kids raped and brainwashed, and they think it's funny"

stormdraintrooper 2 points ago +2 / -0

Because propaganda works very well. It has been working well for quite some time.

operator1214 11 points ago +11 / -0

Nah, not closed -- find out if anybody was bused in...now you've possibly got accessory charges. And against who? Oh, that could get fun! Discovery is a bitch.

FancyBeerCoozyBeer 35 points ago +35 / -0

If some retarded marxist shot the pedo, they should get off too.

BeefyBelisarius 24 points ago +24 / -0

Whoever shot the pedo should get a medal.

FergieJR 17 points ago +17 / -0

Yeah some people have been saying it looks like someone else shot the short pedo in the head.

Something about the angle but I don't know. Will know for sure soon with ballistics

operator1214 8 points ago +8 / -0

Doesn't even matter at this point. Rittenhouse had a decent self-defense prior to this information; now, he's got a good one. And now...well, who, if anyone, created a situation in which criminal acts were allowed/aided leading up to the events? If some of these folks were bused in, who did the busing? If some of them were paid protestors, who paid them? And, what about the culpability of the mayor of Kenosha and especially the governor of WI?

Dariousagain 3 points ago +3 / -0

Thank you for putting into writing everything I've been thinking.

cluckingducks 2 points ago +2 / -0

Entirely possible. I don't know the angle of the shot that took out baldy, but I was surprised death wasn't instantaneous. Close range 5.56 at any kind of good angle should turn brains to mush.

Keln 31 points ago +31 / -0

Bizarre that the flailing New York Times would report it this way. I'm still not 100 percent sure how all of this went down and hesitant to jump to conclusions in anything like this, but this snippet seems to point towards a solid self-defense case for that kid.

TheMAGAnificent 26 points ago +26 / -0

Not bizarre because Sandmann and Lin paved the way.

This is why we need the GOP to carry out consequences for actions against those who violate ethics or the law: deters from future action.

STEVE_HUFFMANS_BULL 26 points ago +26 / -0

I think this is the start of “leftists finally realize that riots make Trump’s support higher than George Floyd’s fentanyl dose so they’ll do anything needed to stop them.” Nothing altruistic about it at all, just BLM/Antifags getting tossed to the curb like every other useful idiot

Keln 10 points ago +10 / -0

This is a reasonable take on it.

operator1214 8 points ago +8 / -0

That's about it. And a good reason for the case to get blown wide open. The Dems have stepped in it:

-- riots not going the way they had hoped; people are sick of this shit...and the Dems are all on record (even at their convention) with being ok with that

-- lockdowns not going the way they had hoped; people are sick of this shit...and Pelosi is on tv record for saying "no" to more stimulus (watch them cave on this)

-- their convention was a dumpster fire; GOP's has been bigly top notch

-- the media has been way too overboard in carrying water for them; you can only piss on a person's leg and call it rain for so long...people are sick of this shit

They have been a bit nervous about their top of the ticket; methinks they're starting to sweat the down ticket too. Couldn't happen to a better group of scumbags.

FergieJR 3 points ago +3 / -0

Antifa are pawns. They want more to get shot.

Some NYT and CNN corporate types are begging for more to get shot.

uncleshorty 7 points ago +7 / -0

Sounds to me that the NY Times doesn't want a defamation lawsuit coming their way...

Current_Year_Acct 4 points ago +4 / -0

After watching plenty of footage it seems very cut and dry that all three shootings were in self defense.

As for the NYT reporting this way, my guess is they were able to see there was too much footage of what really happened to lie about this one, so they're trying not to take the mass credibility hit that everyone else is taking right now.

LuvHarambe 1 point ago +1 / -0

I have a gut feeling that they will try to frame it as “in the chaotic situation he couldn’t tell if/who was firing at him and he killed the wrong person, and this is why civilians shouldn’t have guns”

anikom15 4 points ago +4 / -0

The New York Times seems to actually have a few traces of accountability left.

rnoot 21 points ago +21 / -0

The kid is lucky he survived. We're lucky he survived too. Some kids who escaped future pedo abuse from that manlet also got lucky. Kyle could've told the cops "I was aiming for his feet" and the police would pretty much have to buy it cause the pedo was a comically short manlet.

tonightm16 10 points ago +10 / -0

Well the commie who got a bullet in the arm was about to execute him. So he is very lucky to be alive.

Omega13 14 points ago +14 / -0

New York Times, you're doing kinda better. This is actual investigative journalism. You've got the ball in your hand, but frankly, I don't trust you to not drop it.

kag-2077-kag 2 points ago +2 / -0

Their opinion pieces are leftist dogshit but they do seem to be good at investigative journalism at least in this article it seemed relatively unbiased and fact based. Interesting that they caught the second shooter in the video, nobody seemed to have noticed that until now. Actually helps Kyle too.

Keiichi81 11 points ago +11 / -0

Chased by an angry, violent mob.
Someone throws what appears to be a Molotov at you.
Hear gunshots nearby.
Someone rushing you from behind throws a sucker punch at the back of your head.
Shoot to defend your life.
Try to call the cops but more rioters closing in.
Run away but trip and fall.
Another screaming rioter hits you over the head with his skateboard while you struggle to get up.
Shoot to defend your life.
A third screaming rioter grabs at your weapon.
He has a pistol in his hand.
Shoot to defend your life.
Finally make it to the nearby police line.
Approach with your hands raised.
Waved through.
No one arrests you or instructs you to remain.
Get the fuck out of there and drive home.
Days later, get informed you're being charged with Murder 1 and "evading arrest".

zippy2 9 points ago +9 / -0

how does the NYT figure the shot was "into the air" ?

after watching the video, and direction the flash was traveling, I would say it most certainly was not shot into the air

tsacian 3 points ago +3 / -0

It also appears “lefty” fired a few shots at kyle after retreating from being shot in the arm.

Brofistula 3 points ago +3 / -0

Kyle was surrounded by the atmosphere which is made up of air, so the feral leftist was shooting into the air

deleted 8 points ago +8 / -0
Viewer01 5 points ago +5 / -0

Dude had his shirt tied up to hide his face and is stalking the kid for the tackle from behind, and someone else started shooting first. There is no way this kid gets a murder charge to stick.

NYforTrump 4 points ago +4 / -0

Not a terrible account though it omits that his pursuers hit him and tried to take his gun and that the 'lunging man' in the first incident threw something.

Current_Year_Acct 2 points ago +2 / -0

You can't expect that much, they still have a narrative to push. They probably just saw there was way too much video circulating to lie to the extent other outlets are.

tonightm16 6 points ago +6 / -0 (edited)

I watched the video over again when they claimed this. I don't think its anything to do with Kyle (the guy firing into the air). It's just the guy that got a bullet in the head took the chance to attack Kyle from behind.

Kyle seeing this retard run at him soon after the first shot took action to defend himself.

Also, all these people were together. So after seeing there "comrade" get a bullet in the head chased Kyle down the road to attack him. The rest is pretty well recorded.

If you watch the second video you can hear other shots off in the distance. Could be this same person. Who disappeared into the night. But its clear this group of people wanted to attack Kyle.

ElMalakai 5 points ago +5 / -0

And that's why you don't fire in the air to intimidate. Because you just took it directly to fear for life, and you or someone near you it's going to get shot.

Also interesting that the police wouldn't let Kyle go back to his group protecting the cars. This isolated him from his pack, and as soon as skater boi and dome top saw him isolated, they pounced like the jackals they are.. were....

Puppies4Lovies [S] 1 point ago +1 / -0

I haven't seen footage of the police not letting him go back to his pack. Do you know where I might find that?

ElMalakai 2 points ago +2 / -0

The NYT article mentioned it.

Puppies4Lovies [S] 1 point ago +1 / -0

Ah, thought maybe there was video. Thanks.

SAW2TH 5 points ago +5 / -0

The shot heard round the world.

StompTheLeft 5 points ago +5 / -0

"lunging man" was throwing a moltov cocktail at a 17 year old kid.

Its just too bad Kyle didnt shoot and kill that fucker too.

Ishaye 4 points ago +4 / -0

God we need more Kyles

Puppies4Lovies [S] 1 point ago +1 / -0


Gunsareforfun 3 points ago +3 / -0 (edited)

I gotta concede this one to the libs, I think he threw a brick wrapped in a plastic bag. The lighting* made it look like that though. It didn't shatter or spread a fire. Still a deadly weapon, but not as deadly as a firebomb. He was seen carrying a similar object during the clip where he was asking to get his ticket punched "nigga".

kag-2077-kag 4 points ago +4 / -0

True, I think that the fact that he had his back turned and almost certainly heard a gunshot just before irish-manlet charged him is a good justification for self defense.

Brofistula 2 points ago +2 / -0

true but in the heat of the moment while getting shot at and swarmed by a mob you wouldn't be able to know

Jammerculture 4 points ago +4 / -0

This is good. It was pretty clear that the second shootings were self defense but getting information regarding the first shooting seems to be difficult

AbsoluteNothingness 3 points ago +3 / -0

mfw the journos unknowingly spread the truth for once

Miserable_company 3 points ago +3 / -0

Some rando shot into the air. At that point Kyle turns around thinking he’s being fired on, and returns fire on the person attacking him. Case closed.

Threesrwild 3 points ago +3 / -0

Wouldn’t that kid’s head look like a canoe? Plus he was looking straight at KR but the wound look like it was on the right side of his head. Am I crazy? Please let me know if I am losing it.

Puppies4Lovies [S] 2 points ago +2 / -0

A lot of people are saying that it may have been one of their own that shot the guy in the head. Friendly-fire, if you will. Investigators will get to the bottom of it.

Adwest232323 3 points ago +3 / -0

Why is the nyt telling the truth?

Puppies4Lovies [S] 3 points ago +3 / -0

My guess is, they know Trump is going to win again and they will be out of business shortly, if they keep up the fake news BS. Totally a guess, though.

teraton_vehemence 2 points ago +2 / -0

wow NYT did some actual research

Ruinerdown 2 points ago +2 / -0

BKCXb 2 points ago +2 / -0

did they check to see if the dude who got his arm blown open gun was fired recently????

Puppies4Lovies [S] 1 point ago +1 / -0

I don't think any of those kind of details have been released. I've been trying to follow it pretty closely. Nothing new. Let me know if ya here something interesting.

Yeah, that is what they are counting on. No one standing up. No one fighting back. No one saying enough. SOMEONE was going to do it. Guess it was this young man.
