Kenosha shooter plans lawsuits against “leftist media”
He wants to “defend the false news machine” and plans to sue “left-wing media organizations.” American teenager Rittenhouse shot two protesters in 2020, but was acquitted in a sensational trial. He’s not happy with that.
Six months after the controversial acquittal, American teenager Kyle Rittenhouse, who shot dead two protesters during anti-racism protests in 2020, is launching a video game. The game is about shooting down turkeys representing the American media. Among other things, the animals say “Fake News”, the main character of the game is the comic book version of Rittenhouse.
In a video posted on Twitter, Rittenhouse said he intended to use the proceeds of the game to sue “left-wing media organizations” for reporting it. The media then “blackened” him. “It’s time to stand up to the hoax machine.” The game is said to cost $ 9.99 and is currently only available for pre-order.
The then 17-year-old Rittenhouse shot dead in August 2020, two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The young man, armed with a semi-automatic rifle, traveled to Kenosha and joined the militants who claimed to protect businesses from robbers. There have been violent protests in the city after a police officer severely shot African American Jacob Blake in the back.
During the clashes in the middle of the chaotic scenes, Rittenhouse shot two men and seriously injured a third. In November 2021, however, he was acquitted of all charges in a sensational trial. His lawyers argued in court that the young man was acting in self-defense because he was attacked by protesters. Rittenhouse has become something of a puppet in right-wing circles and an advocate of gun rights.
