Former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi has defended 17-year-old Illinois double murder suspect Kyle Rittenhouse as a “little boy” who was merely “trying to protect his community” during the shootings in Kenosha, Wisconsin last month.
Bondi appeared on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show to discuss new video footage released by Rittenhouse’s attorney which paints the suspect in a favorable light and suggests his actions were justified in the “war zone” which had broken out in Kenosha in the wake of the police shooting of Jacob Blake.
“You have got a 17-year-old out there trying to protect his state,” Bondi said, despite the fact the teenager traveled from his hometown in Antioch, Illinois, to attend the protests on August 25.
“This kid was out there trying to help people. Were people killed? Absolutely,” Bondi added. “But again, we don’t know yet. You’ve got a little boy out there trying to protect his community.
“Should he have been out there with a gun? No. But should he have been charged with murder? We just don’t know yet. They charged him two days later.
“You know, it’s a war zone out there. What’s it coming to in these liberal cities, when teenagers have to go out to provide aid to other people who are getting injured by these rioters?”
Rittenhouse is charged with first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide, attempted first-degree intentional homicide and two counts of first-degree reckless endangerment.
He is also charged with possession of a dangerous weapon by someone under the age of 18 after taking the Smith & Wesson AR-15 style rifle across states into Kenosha.
There is more at the link above. This tRump mindset of our side is above the law no matter what, and anyone who disagrees with us should be harmed or killed has spread like a wildfire across his supporters. I am sick of these people and wonder what happened to the real country of laws we use to have in the US. The fact is these people care about the end result only, their side wins all the power and is unrestrained. Hugs
