Male subject with rifle accepts water from police and police are heard saying “We appreciate you guys, we really do.”

KENOSHA, WISCONSIN – Two people are dead after a gunman opened fire on protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin Tuesday night and social media is lit in the aftermath as circulating video depicts the alleged gunman working with police and being told he’s appreciated and given water.

Kenosha police say that on August 25, 2020 at about 11:45 PM, Kenosha police, along with assisting agencies, responded to the area of 63rd Street and Sheridan Road for reports of shots being fired and multiple gunshot victims. The shooting resulted in two fatalities and a third gunshot victim was transported to a hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries. They say the shooting investigation is active an ongoing and no further details regarding the shooting will be released at this time. The names, ages and cities of residence for the victims are still being determined.

In the aftermath of the shooting, social media lit up as video showed what appears to be a young man with an AR-15 rifle fire on bystanders in a street where protesters were gathered. The man (or boy) fires multiple shots, striking several people. As the video progresses, the shooter, with his AR-15 slung over his shoulder, calmly walks toward police, gives a hand gesture, and is allowed to continue on. He is later shown in a second video with other armed men near the scene, consorting with police and accepting water. Police tell the men, “We appreciate you guys, we really do.”

There is a petition being gathered at this time to pressure the Governor of Wisconsin to force the arrest of the alleged shooter, who many are reporting as 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.

    Now that the whole story has come to light, calling it anything besides self defense, would be a great racial injustice.

    You are lying again.
    1.No gun was found in his car. A knife, yes. But no gun.
    2. Floyd had a dose that could be called lethal, but if it was, how was he alive? Besides, the doctor who performed the autopsy said fentanyl didn’t kill Floyd, a cop did.
    3. Absolutely no proof of the lung collapse and recovery.
    4. The doctor said it wouldn’t be called a suicide but an overdose if Floyd had died at home.
    5. As for the money raised through the Go Fund me page, why do you think you can tell people who they can or cannot donate money to? Think back to last week…who was arrested for using money donated for the wall for his personal pleasure?
    Quit lying.

          I do know that Matt sometimes deletes comments. It is his site, he can choose what he wants on it. However, most of the comments that are deleted are done by 1 or 2 people who have been on this site long enough to know that the ‘report comment’ button on each post will automatically delete a post if it is used 3 times. So don’t blame Matt for it all. Those individuals who do delete posts have their reasons….most likely that opposing views are not to be tolerated (just like the President). Yes, some are conservative posts, but overall the liberal point of view seems to me to be the type that are deleted especially the ones that use facts and documentation to combat outrageous claims and outright falsehoods.

    This is what happens. A 17 year old white male arrested for murder. He probably felt he was helping to stop the violence. He was peaceably taken in without guns drawn. On the other hand, a 22 year old Black male was aggressively apprehended and responded in kind.

        Just because you resist arrest doesn’t mean you should be shot 7 times. The white kid walked right past police officers carrying his weapon. Spectators were telling the police he was the one who shot the protestors, the cops gave him a bottle of water. By the way, for all you who think Blake deserved it because of his past need to look at the kid’s past. Full of disorderly conduct, possession of drugs, resisting arrest.

          “Just because you resist arrest doesn’t mean you should be shot 7 times.”

          When the police have tried to arrest you, you have a history of violence, are breaking a restraining order (protecting your ex? girlfriend), the police have tried to put you in cuffs, you resisted and pull away, have been Tasered twice with no affect, start reaching into your vehicle where you AREADY admitted there is a knife.

          YES,YOU SHOULD BE SHOT.

          Violent history known to attack officers, had a warrant for raping a child. Ya, ya he did deserve to be shot seven times. To bad the whole department didnt show up and unload mags into Jacob blake. He deserves to be dead. Standing up for a child molester? Makes you a child molester, guilt by association you worthless scum bag.

            Not self defense when you shoot someone in the back. That can be applied to Rittenhouse and the cop. Shoot Blake in the leg or arm. 7 times in the back? Give me a break. Rittenhouse says he killed the first protester in self-defense. Was the guy farting on him or what? Chicken shit mfers just like you big boys who post here. Bet most of you cant CC because of your record. Or you are just afraid. Freaking snowflakes.

      There wasn’t a gun in the car. Imagine this, none of the police officers turned on their body cams. I wonder why.

        The cops didn’t even know who Blake was or that their was a knife in the car until after they shot him. Get a grip and read articles instead of ASSuming anything.

      “He didn’t do anything wrong. Neither did Jacob Blake, which this protest is about”

      Blake was at his ex? girlfriends house, she has a restraining order. He has a history of violent offenses, some against police. When the police initially tried to arrest him (Blake), he had a scuffle with them. They (police) even Tazed Blake,TWICE, to no affect. He (Blake) admitted there was a weapon(knife) on driver side floor of his vehicle, He was shot while trying hard to reach something INSIDE his vehicle after the police had tried to stop him MULTIPLE TIMES.

      He was non verbally begging to be shot. All his actions said, “I AM AN IDIOT, PLEASE SHOOT ME!”

      He knew his actions were going to put his back in the graybar hotel for a while. He didn’t want to go, might as while try to be a martyr for “Being a THUG(worthless pile)”

    I am a white man from Mason City. Twice in my life I have had police point a gun in my face and say hands against the car or hands against the wall. I immediately did what I was told. It is not that hard people do what the police say. Then let the police sort it out. Every person I see on the news getting shot by police is never standing still. Then the news people try to make the police look bad. I think schools should teach what to do when pulled over by the police. The public can’t seem to be able to figure it out.

        Oh, now wait just a minute! You can’t say the truth like that when it goes against the stupid PC narrative.

        It’s factual that a ‘certain segment’ does not consistently comply with the orders from LEOs. That has, and always will lead to “Stupid Games=Stupid Prizes. It’s kindergarten-ish and dishonest to be surprised by this.
