Prosecutors say Kyle Rittenhouse — the 17-year-old charged with killing two people during protests in Kenosha in Wisconsin last summer — flashed white power signs and “loudly serenaded” the Proud Boys’ anthem at a bar.
In his 90-minute visit to the bar, Kyle Rittenhouse, 17, was seen consuming alcohol while being serenaded by a group of adult men who sang the Proud Boys’ anthem, according to the motion.
, last summer — after they said he flashed white power signs and was “loudly serenaded” the Proud Boys’ anthem at a bar.On Wednesday, the Kenosha County District Attorney’s Office filed a motion to restrict Rittenhouse from possessing or consuming alcohol at a bar or restaurant, displaying white power signs, and fraternizing with known members of white supremacy groups.
Rittenhouse, of Antioch, Illinois, wasreleased from Kenosha County Jailon a $2 million bond in November, money mostly raised by conservatives through a legal defense fund. The conditions of Rittenhouse’s bond currently do not restrict him from entering a bar, drinking alcohol, or making contact with white supremacist militia groups like the Proud Boys.
According to prosecutors, the request came after Rittenhouse was spotted with his mother at a local bar in Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, on Jan. 5 — the same day he pleaded not guilty to felony homicide charges and other crimes in connection to the killing of two protesters and injuring one other. headtopics.com
Nov. 21, 202000:28At Pudgy’s Pub, Rittenhouse was seen wearing a T-shirt with the words, “Free as F***,” while flashing the"OK" sign — a gesture that has been co-opted by known white supremacist groups, the motion said. In his 90-minute visit to the bar, which was captured on security footage, the teen was seen consuming alcohol while being serenaded by a group of adult men who sang the Proud Boys’ anthem, according to the motion.
In the state of Illinois, where Rittenhouse lives, it is illegal for anyone under the age of 21 to possess or consume alcohol in a public place, according to the motion. But in Wisconsin, people under the age of 21 can carry and drink alcohol if they are with a parent.
Rittenhouse’s attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment Thursday. Read more: NBC News »
Democrats to take Senate as Ossoff wins runoff, CNN projects
The Democratic Party will take control of Congress for the first time in a decade, after Democrats the Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff won their Senate runoffs in Georgia, CNN projected Wednesday.
I don’t think that’s going to help his case. Why is he not labeled terrorist? RACIST CRIME!!! time to lock these people Up as Terrorist! Obviously Rittenhouse exemplifies the typical Trump lover. He'll likely find out pretty quick his white supremacy doesn't count for much in prison. Bail jumping, lock him up!
Videos. Any proof? This is worst than nazi germany ohhh but similar to current communist china Imagine being rewarded for murder because people thing those killed had a different political party. This is not a reason to kill and all I hear from the alt right is it's ok to kill for party differences. Their insecurities control them.
🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬 Firing squad would send a clear message Disguating. Murderer Notice NBC didn't show ONE picture of Rittenhouse even though they claim there is video footage. NBC aka N ice B iased C overage. Of course he did. Why is this even news? Revoke bail. Back in custody. That should be good enough to revoke his bail!!
Take this MF back to the pen! Why am I not surprised Convict him mom too.Domestic terrorism Lock him up. Shocked!? Racism is learned behaviour, you learn to be an asshole. Who cares He is not white according to the Home Depot color chart. His color is 'Timeless EPFD-12' He’s 17... 🤯🤯 Why is he allowed in a bar to begin with? This kid’s mother needs to be locked up.
Sad very sad. 👌👌👌 sure....ok He’s gonna be one hell of a Republican smfh Of course he did. No one is surprised by this. True story: I was using OK sign 👌🏻 to my friends, some Beta Dude screaming at me 'NAZIS!'. I am Asian-Arabic. Not a Caucasian. 👌 Journalist are at it again Trumps America. Off to jail
Please let there be a video. Please let there be a video. If you're a soft white male looking at a long prison term, you're going to need to pick a side. Truth coming out How the left thinks He ain't sorry, he'll get to prison and join one of them white power gangs if he don't get beat up first 👌 = Okay or all is well (to majority of world) Only in America it has transposed to another meaning because of dumb FRW insecure white folk from about 2017 Stop making something out of nothing
You guys are so easy to troll, it's kinda sad. Translation - The night was so well documented that it's clear to anyone with two brain cells to rub together that Kyle did what he did only out of self defense, so the prosecution has to resort to this insane nonsense because what else do they have? Nbc should be ashamed of themselves
Sorry, thats the universal symbol for okay nothing else 17 at a bar. Carries assault rifles. Murders multiple people. AND THEY LET SOME RICH WHITE RACISTS BOND HIM OUT, THAT DONT EVEN KNOW HIM. Smh. Sounds like he’ll be back in jail in no time True colors always show. Just takes time. Lock him up! Sounds about white
Surprise, surprise! Trash 👌👌👌 EnemyOfThePeople He's only got 6 days left for trump to pardon him You've all been played. Please help! My son has chronic illness (lyme & pyrolle disease). I can no longer afford his medical expenses after losing my job to Covid. He's high risk. We're really struggling and he's been so sick all year. Please RT; I appreciate any support. 🌼🌷
Where is the video? Seriously contracting Covid is very possible while singing at a public bar, trump wouldn't be able to pardon that Hmmm...drinking age in Kenosha is 21; shouldn't that be a probation violation? Rittenhouse s/b back in jail! 17 year old sings song from Disney's Aladdin and used the universally understood 'OK' hand gesture. Fixed.
Lmao what’s the Proud Boys Anthem? The company you keep always gets u in the end. Several problems become evident with this article. Why is the mother not charged? Why is he not removed from her custody? Why is the bar not shut down for serving alcohol to a minor? Normally, bail has many restrictions? When restrictions are added it should include ankle monitor, rittenhouse gets to pay for it.
Obviously Steph is a white supremacist as well. 🤷🏼♂️ Lock him up. Now. Whichever bars he was in should have their licences revoked. Sickens me to the day he's still walking in the streets. Enjoy it while you can. This little porker is going to be middle aged by the time he gets out of prison. So he hates black people?
bail violation arrest him
