Kenosha: How two paths crossed in a fatal encounter that has divided the nation



#kenosha riots #kenosha documentary #kenosha shooting #breaking news #News & Politics
In a summer roiled by protests for racial justice, Kenosha, Wis., moved into the national spotlight in August after a White police officer shot a Black man named Jacob Blake seven times in the back.
Peaceful protests during the day were followed by rioting and civil unrest at night. Just before midnight on Aug. 25, tensions peaked when a 17-year-old named Kyle Rittenhouse shot and killed 36-year-old Joseph Rosenbaum. Moments later, Rittenhouse shot two other men, one fatally.
Rittenhouse was arrested and charged with multiple counts of homicide and weapons offenses, but right-wing groups have rallied to his cause, celebrating him as a hero who sought to protect Kenosha from destructive rioting and who fired in self-defense. The events have become a litmus test for a deeply divided nation.
A Washington Post examination of video and police records, along with other documents, sheds new light on the mindsets of the two people principally involved. The Post found that Rittenhouse, who was too young to buy a rifle, had arranged for an adult friend to buy the weapon for him using money Rittenhouse had received from a government stimulus program. The Post interviewed Rittenhouse, who spoke publicly for the first time since his arrest. He said he did not regret that he had a gun that night.
The examination also reveals new details about Rosenbaum’s struggles with mental illness and includes the first on-camera interview with his fiancee, Kariann Swart. Watch the video to hear Rittenhouse talk about his intentions that night and to learn more about the paths that brought both men to a tragic encounter.

I like how they don’t play the clip where he goes “shoot me n-word”

Joey was only going to show Kyle how much he really really loved him with a little body slam or something like that. That is how he shows his love.

It was self defense but at the same time he shouldn’t of been there to avoid this situation. Just like the lady said about the dude who got killed. He shouldn’t of been there

Buying AR with stimulus was smart. I bought candy bars, gum and a couple hot wheels. Damn it.
