Kyle Rittenhouse Breaks Down and Cries on Stand While Describing the Horror of Being Surrounded by Rioters Attempting to Kill Him in Kenosha Last August

Kyle Rittenhouse broke down in tears crying about the events that led to his arrest after shooting dead two men in Kenosha, Wisconsin in self-defense last August 25th. 

WRCBtv reported:

Kyle Rittenhouse broke down crying Wednesday while testifying in his homicide trial about the moments before he fatally shot Joseph Rosenbaum in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year, leading the judge to call for a short break in the case.

Rittenhouse, 18, began his testimony by telling jurors he is now studying nursing at Arizona State University. He testified that he had worked as a lifeguard in Kenosha, was part of a police explorer program and knows CPR and basic life support.

He lived in Antioch, Illinois, with his mother, and his father lived in Kenosha. He testified that he went into Kenosha on the morning of August 25, 2020, to clean up graffiti, and then again that night with a rifle and small medic kit and joined up with a group of armed people. “I went down there to provide first aid,” he said. He said he did not go there looking for trouble.

Rittenhouse told jurors that Rosenbaum threatened to kill him twice that night. In one instance, Rosenbaum screamed, “if I catch any of you f***ers alone, I’ll f***ing kill you,” according to Rittenhouse.
At one point in the night, he became separated from the other armed people in his group. He walked toward a parking lot and said Rosenbaum, hiding behind a vehicle, “ambushed me.” Rosenbaum began running at him and cornered him, he said — and then Rittenhouse broke down into tears.

Kyle Rittenhouse is lucky to be alive after being attacked by multiple BLM/Antifa types who were looting and burning down Kenosha, Wisconsin.  He was trying to help and did what he could to survive.
