It’s amazing to me, how all of these rioters and looters are getting away with so many crimes, allowed to just roam the streets and bully and intimidate American citizens, but anyone who defends themselves against these violent communists is prosecuted and treated like the “bad guys.”
Just look at what happened to the armed St. Louis couple, who defended their home against a violent mob threatening to kill them and their dog and burn their house down.
They are the ones charged with a felony.

Many people believe that this is a prosecutorial overreach for political reasons.
Needless to say, the DA who charged Rittenhouse is a Democrat. He’s also come under fire before for overcharging “victims.”
Mike Graveley, Democrat DA who charged Kyle Rittenhouse w/5 felonies, also charged 19-year-old Chrystul Kizer with 1st-degree murder after she killed a POS who sexually and physically abused her and trafficked her for 2 years.

The good news is, young Kyle is assembling a strong. legal team. He already has Mr. Lin Wood on his team – the same attorney who handled young Nick Sandmann’s case.
At this time, I will not publicly address private facts about Kyle Rittenhouse or his family beyond telling you that is a fine young boy blessed with a good family. Take media rumors & accusations with a grain of salt. In time, lies are always revealed when truth is disclosed.

However, Kyle will need all the prayers he can get it right now.
