Kyle Rittenhouse recounts Kenosha riots, reacts to media portrayal of trial in first interview since acquittal
In an exclusive interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, Kyle Rittenhouse spoke out about the night of the Kenosha riots that led to his arrest, as well as his eventual acquittal by jury and the angry reaction of the mainstream media and Democrats including President Biden.
Rittenhouse, 18, was acquitted in the shooting deaths of two men, Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum, as well as the wounding of Gaige Grosskreutz, whom he shot through the right bicep after the protester pointed a pistol at him.
Rittenhouse told Carlson that he was staying at the home of a friend during the Kenosha riots and was mystified and troubled by the lack of resources provided to the police force in trying to quell the violence after the shooting of Jacob Blake.
“I’m not really sure where [the police presence] was, because they had a hard job for sure – but I didn’t really think they got the support they needed,” he said.
“The governor, Tony Evers, failed the community and there should have been a lot more resources to help with that.”
