Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old gunman accused of killing protesters in Kenosha, Wis., in August, posted $2 million bail and was released from custody on Friday.

Rittenhouse faces charges that he shot to death two men and wounded a third at protests following the police shooting of Jacob Blake in August.

In anothertweet, Wood called Rittenhouse"a hero.""Just off phone with Kyle. With tears in my eyes, I listened as he expressed thanks to The People for your prayers, donations & support. ... Kyle is a hero."Rittenhouse crossed into Wisconsin from Illinois on Aug. 25, following the protests that erupted after the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man shot multiple times by Kenosha Police in front of his children. Blake is now paralyzed.

Lawyers representing the Illinois teen argue he killed Rosenbaum and Huber and wounded Grosskreutz in self-defense. Rittenhouse also told police he was attacked while guarding a business.Members of a group calling itself the Kenosha Guard put out a call on Facebook for armed volunteers to"defend" the city from what they characterized as violent, leftist marauders.

Georgia Republican officials reject Trump's calls to overturn election results

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, both Republicans, on Monday rebuffed President Donald Trump's calls to overturn the state's election results more than a week after they certified Joe Biden as the winner.

Whose parent’s would drive their son across state into a RIOT with an illegally purchased firearm!! If they didn’t intend for him to kill “monsters[his words, not mine]”? Unbelievable! Accused? LOL Who’s parent’s would drive them across into a riot with a gun? He told his sister he thought the rioters were “monsters.” The irony and evil complicity of it all.

I believe Rittenhouse will end up being in the news again... he has all the makings now of becoming a martyr to the 'cause' Wala, well! What do you know?! Bailed out by two woman abusers! You can’t make this stuff up! If perp not if legal age is brought up on charges the parents should be also as they are legally responsible

Sweet Jesus - Boooooo I predict the next 25 years are gonna suck for this kid. Being a white domestic terrorist has its privileges. Who paid his bail? Does anyone feel safe in his neighborhood? Perfect exampleof extreme right justice! Monster...face yourself...in the mirror. Get 👏 rid 👏 of 👏 cash bail 👏

Outrageous. white privilege What a disgrace to justice, the law and the value of human life. 1 GOP candidate for the NRA! This is a kid that had no reason to be there in the first place. And to be there with a loaded weapon especially an Ar. He also afflicted w affluenza? terrorists come in many shapes and sizes. he doesn't need to be exposed to the public. he needs mental help

Disgusting this kid didn’t need to protect himself. He Brought himself to that site He killed because his racism family teaches him to hate. Justice for the families of victims. Mother needs to pay for her son crime. Hmmm, a cold blooded psycho murderer was indulged with a two million dollar gift to get out of jail. The only solace would be, if, he goes on the run and his benefactor loses their two million. That would be nice.

SINCE WHEN DO TERRORISTS GET OUT OF JAIL I am trembling with rage and disgust. He is an evil man. Sad. 17 year old boys aren't the smartest people. Someone gave him a gun and wound him up and sent him into a crowded protest. They are as guilty as he is. So terrible. Must be nice to have people dole out what is it-10% cash down on the bail to allow his freedom until the trial. 20% of 2m? Still.. folks do not have a job, or food to eat.. but some have money to 🔥

Actor Ricky Schroeder, arrested twice last year for domestic violence, footed most of the bill! Birds of a feather! We all knew this was going to happen. The crazy Right Wingers even set up a fund for him. But this punk must pay for what he did. Kyle is a hero and patriot. Should’ve been no bail. How the F**K did this kid get enough $$ to do this?! Oh, yeah...the folks who believed he was just there to “help keep the peace” 🤬🤬🤬

follow the $$$$$ We’re all definitely less safe with this danger to society roaming free. He shouldn’t have been granted bail. This wasn’t his first violent incident, and won’t be his last if he’s not stopped. America's legal system is full of flaws. Paid by the my pillow man and fellow criminal! Three lives lost and so many affected. This is tragic on every level and now people of influence are propagating continued hatred.

Ricky Schroeder is canceled. Life no parole Horrible Speechless!! This story is downright chilling. America: what has happened to you? Charles Bronson wannabe (Death Wish). Didn’t he go out looking for trouble too? Whenever you do that, you usually find it. This boy should have stayed home that night, but no, he wanted to “help” the police. Is that crazy or what?

Wannanbe terrorist With a little luck he may die a slow horrible death. Universe justice. How the hell can a 17 yr old post a 2m bail? If this kid was black it would be a completely different story. Hmm, I wonder where that money came from. Who posted it for him? 🎶🔥🔥💸💸💸💸💪🏽🥂🎊🎉🎈🎈👑🧻🧻 Is the friend who bought him the rifle facing charges? That's a strawman sale and definitely illegal.

If he was black... he would never have been given the PRIVILEGE of bail. Kid should be rotting in jail for life. It is shocking that people contributed to get this terrorist out of jail. They are aiding a terrorist. How can we make sure he won’t buy another assault rifle and kill more innocent people.?!?

And report the two idiots that put up the bail...MyPillowUSA There is no end to the weirdness of 2020. He'll be rearrested soon enough even if Ricky Shroeder is one his side. He killed, in cold blood, period. He brought a rifle to this gathering, aimed and shot. He's guilty I wonder what Kyle is having for breakfast this morning? I’m going with a pop tart

What is becoming of this country Disgusting Yet another example of the cash bail malarkey. If you can get the $$ You can shoot people on t.v. and still have Thanksgiving at Momma's house. If you can't get the money, you can just rot in jail for NOT stealing that backpack. 2 million wasted dollars. Why is bail an option? It makes no sense....

So we calling the guys he killed protesters? They seemed to fall squarely in the rioters category Sounds about white. This system is garbage Does Wisconsin have the death penalty? Another example of how the bail-system is broken. He should not have been given bail for killing all those people. Republicans paid this murderers bail

Fucking what? Kyle the hero of Kenosha. 'He's a hero?' No. He's a murderer. Gun nuts posting bail for killer gun nut. Hope he gets life in prison. How in the hell? How in the blue hell is he able to to post that and/or even offered bail? He’s obviously a flight risk and committed a crime across state lines.

Something is wrong! He will probably end up with the same sort of life as George Zimmerman. This is disgusting. I was going to write something clever/witty but I can’t. He is a domestic terrorist out on bail... Let him fry When you go to a location with an assault weapon intentionally putting yourself in harms way and you are not a LEO, it just may be a premeditated act when you open fire.

The fact that wing nuts are supporting murder now should come as no surprise. These are the same people who aided the President in killing 270k people. Justice is coming. His claim of self- defense is disgusting. His choice to cross state lines and engage in warfare of his creation. He should be charged with 1st degree murder & his mother should be charged with aiding & abetting

I wonder who posted his $2 million bail. That’s insane. I hope they toss him into general pop. Unbelievable. Hey KamalaHarris time to be consistent with your messaging. I didn’t know murders got a bond? This guy went out looking for trouble,,,,,and killed people. realDonaldTrump must have bailed him out with slush fund donations his losers and suckers base is sending him to file fake lawsuits in an attempt to flip the election.

Because who cares that a murderer walk free. He admitted he did it. Why is this even an option? His parents are enablers. Posted bail! If it’s not cash only the family still had to put up $150,000 to a bail/bondsman. Rich spoiled boy Whr did he get the $2? When he is found not guilty because it was self defense people are going to freak the F out again He shouldn’t have been armed but he shouldn’t have been jumped either

100% white privilege!!! No black man would have EVER been aloud to walk by police with hands up after murdering two white people, let alone walk out of jail!!!! At absolute best this kid is a scared little punk who committed manslaughter with an illegally obtained weapon. The fact that he's being made out as some kind of hero is sickening.

this smells like racist money Lock him up. He is an armed combatant. He should be judged based on that fact. If anyone ever deserved to by tried as an adult and made an example of it's this murderer. His release proves without a doubt how broken the American justice system is. A mass murderer who is supported by realDonaldTrump

Wonder who paid for that bail. Lord knows his parents probably don't have it.... Sponsoring domestic terrorism. He managed to pull together 2 million dollars? How much you want to bet he used that defense fund on go-fund-me to secure his bail bond? He's a hero. He deserves a memorial He deserves the Presidential Medal of Freedom Thank god this American Hero was released. God Speed Sir

😲 The fuck why would he be allowed to be released? Seems dangerous This is disgusting White peoples racism paid that bail. DDDDDisgusting Photo, a kid with arms firing adults, crazy but true in a so called modern of example nation! How do we call a nation where ordinary People rule the law and order in the streets? Guns are for the armee, the police or the National Guard, the rest must be controlled recreative hobby or sport. Now we have gangs and allowed criminals, the far West.

Some white supremacists have deep pockets.obviously tho... The BIG question is who bailed him out? How is this justice?😤 You have to laugh!! ... because he’s white. This makes me sick. PLEASE STOP CARRYING MyPillow PRODUCTS... BedBathBeyond Walmart Kohls HomeDepot sleepnumber BigLots cvspharmacy amazon

Who else has ever even been given the OPTION of bail when facing multiple murder charges and when the judge acknowledges he is a flight risk? WATCH OANN (One America News Network) That is if you want to truth the mainstream, politically controlled media doesn't want you to know. The truth about what is really going on with the election and the extreme amount of proof of fraud by the Democratic party.

Why should there be the perk of bail when that there is testimony backed up by video evidence against this individual This is white supremacy. Imagine driving across state lines, illegally owning a gun and then killing people.............it ain’t self defense if you go looking for it. Call DFCS while you’re at it on his accomplice of a mother.

I hope he gets what’s coming to him in prison... Killer Kyle went out with the intent to kill. Why no more smile, Kyle? Posted by 'Christians' no doubt who never actually read the script. Good to know that people that commit crimes that have money just get away with it. Crap justice system. Nice for him Good ol ’ “Christians” 👏

who tf payed the bail?! Human garbage A childlike killer in the making. You can see the insolence. He thinks he’s a hero, like “Son of Sam”. Who pay $2 million for hisbail out This is a lot of money. Not the woman beater bailing him out of jail... Who posted his bail? Trump himself or one of his followers?

I can’t wait until they erect the first Kyle Rittenhouse statue. You know, to honor history, not hate and stupidity. Maybe his future victims can use a MyPillow to pack their bulletwounds? Lock the mthrfckr UP!! hope my pillow guy is liable for any crimes related to his release Fresh booty for Bubba. Should never have been arrested.

How the f*** was he allowed bail. This murderer should never have been allowed bail. This is why we have to do ANYTHING now to put sane people back in control of the white House. America is going DOWN THE DRAIN!!! And Trump is the Drano!!!! Hero 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 A 17 year old was able to raise 2 million? Dang! He has great supporters!

Realizing the word ‘Patriots’ is used in every state for extreme far white hate groups that support Trump. Perhaps look into that NPR it IS a thing. In AZ it is the Patriot Movement-all white nationalists hate groups-I bet every state has this populist group defending ‘Merica He's still gonna rot in jail.

scum Unfreaking believable 🤬 IT'S NO GOOD!!! Nothing will help except to GET OUT ON THE STREETS AND FIGHT!!!!! Fight for our basic Democratic rights!!! It's come down to that. Trump is trying to deny the WILL OF THE PEOPLE!! Never has there been so low a man in the White House. TIME TO FIGHT!!!!GO NOW!!!

This is obscene. Good. Shameful. If he was black he'd get life, if her survived getting killed by police. Since he's white, he walks thanks to the litany of disgusting racist white supremacists posting his bail. Absolutely beyond the pale. Who bailed him out? They should track the people who crowdfunded his $2 million bail and arrest them as well for aiding and abetting a murderer.

What the fucking fuck 2 million fucking dollars for a murderer. That’s who the political right is these days. So what country is he fleeing to by tomorrow....? If it’s protesting, it’s rioting. If it’s rioting, it’s protesting. I’m so F*cking Confused!! It sounds to me like these terms are used only to suit what the media wants you to believe. In this case, it was rioting but they called it protesting. But they weren’t even there. What?

Whitepriv is alive and well No privilege just White Supremacy at large lets not pretend that these guys are home grown terrorist looking for reasons to go kill people they disagree with they all get bail they all have large donations from these white nationalists groups and they will never change. Way to go America, you are so one for all. You are a pool of no one cares, I'm ent, I'm what matters country. The world will over take you soon. Take a bow.

No surprises...Derek Chauvin is free. Where did he get the bail money? Kyle was a political prisoner, thank god he's free. Arrested for defending himself against a violent mob of leftist terrorists and anarchists. For all of you willfully ignorant low information fuckwits who don't agree I refer you to the 11 min video in the tweet pinned on my page

Y’all know what to do. 2ndAmendment irony After reading the tweet all the air just went out of the room. Can't avoid the obvious America is a fragmented society that is naked for the entire world 2 C. Raw and mangled its there we r nt all = + we never were. Wow. Unbelievable. It’s Kyle Wick. Get it right.

This is INSANE. Why? $2 million well wasted I would hope he has ankle monitor and daily check ins ! If he shoots someone else, does the pillow guy and the has been actor lose their money? You have got to be joking. Hope he skips bail and wastes that 2 mil Good. Screw this kid. He went looking for trouble and ended two lives needlessly, and ruined his own. Clearly he had no business owning a firearm. People like him make responsible gun owners look bad.

😡😡 kyledeserveslifeinprison His bail was paid by the Pillow Guy. Very telling. 17 year old. Not a Gunmen. Ducking media is bat shit crazy. It was self defense and you know it. He was not some crazed mad man. He was attacked, plan and simple. FreeKyleRittennhouse This kid may be out of prison, but don't worry. He won't live comfortably for the rest of his young life.

Paid assassin. MAGA-paid. Domestic terrorists-paid domestic terrorist-approved domestic terrorist-raised domestic terrorist. He should’ve been denied bail!!🤬 Aaawww so he can make it in time to spend thanksgiving with his family while the two innocent men he murdered in cold blood cant. Whew to be white and male in this country 🤦🏽‍♀️

White privilege Well hopefully someone finds him and takes care of this decision. I wish people would raise 2 million for me for NOT being a murderous douche... 👀 belongs in prison. dont be coy just say it was the NRA Methinks, he might have been safer in custody. 😒 America: where you can use the same website to raise the necessary funds to pay for crippling medical bills that you shouldn't be responsible for and to raise the funds get out of jail for murdering people that you're absolutely responsible for.

Kyle Rittenhouse was not a soldier. He was not law enforcement. He was a regular civilian that murdered 2 other civilians with an AR-15 style rifle, and wounded a third. He is rightfully charged w/ 2 counts of felony homicide & 1 felony attempted homicide & will be convicted. If only we could society.

Flight risk?!? Was granted a BAIL hearing and granted BAIL. Let him shoot and or kill another person while on BAIL in the name of trump. I’m telling you, trump wants a CIVIL war...a war against RACES & PARTY! This is dangerous. I hope his white privilege doesn't save him from facing the consequences You Seppo's are ridiculous. Trying to defend a guy that carried a gun across town looking for trouble. It beggars belief

Textbook self defense, he won't be convicted. So he illegally obtained a firearm, crossed state lines, went in the middle of an area of unrest with said gun and shot 3 people. 2 are dead- THEN he gets bailed out by MyPillowGuy His pillows fucking suck btw. money huh That is just not right. Hmm. I wonder where this guy’s family got $2 million?

He's entitled to bail and a trial. Saw him do it...no bail Where the hell did he get money for bail? I say boycott MyPillow... Thanks in part to donations made to his defense from outstanding citizens like Ricky Schroeder and Scott Baio. Explains a lot about why Dolly Parton's career has spanned over 5 decades and their careers lasted a whole season or two, maybe?

Probably a good thing Way to be a terrible place, America. 👎🏼 npr is the joke of an idea of truth... Sad devil has now taken over... You have killed Paul Harvey forever... In what world does a multiple murderer receive bail? If you want to condemn Kyle, at least respond to what The NYT’s wrote about the event:

This punk shouldn't be walking the streets. wheredidthemoneycomefrom Guess it’s okay to catchandrelease dangerous murderers onto our streets when they’re white. Good. Fucking politicized shit I can’t wait to see the media fall. We know that if he were a black man he would be DEAD at the hands of law enforcement.

Is that how his supporters spent their Stimuluscheck dollars!? Rittenhouse said, he made his underaged weapon purchase with his stimulus check! GOP TY.. This little misguided SH1T of a minor thinks he's above the law, he's totally mimicking entitlement like realDonaldTrump Setting an example If Kyle was a black guy, would he have been as lucky?

Fucking joke. But it's my right... Not to cross state lines with an illegal gun for a minor it isn't. Ridiculous. America isn't the home of the free it's the home of the delusional. Who paid the bond? A true dip sheit Remember when this that got swept away? He’s gonna be real purty on them knees in prison

He crossed state lines and had someone buy a firearm for him. Self-defense isn’t self-defense when you go to where the trouble exists. Black guy doing this wouldn't even have a hearing. I'm doing with the nonsense of our country I’m very happy to hear this. People have been burning and looting only to be let out immediately and this kid was locked up for trying to do good.

Who the fuck paid this kid $2 million for bail? Jesus christ...who are his parents? Sickening Way a lie I bett it was a fake frauded court case like all the rest you got all your friends to stage again for you as normal I think the fbi needs to check this out to be shire this is really true and check all your qualifications at the same time for the court hearings you do

Wow,2Mil bail but release on bail probably filty rich family.god bless all Happy he's out, was clearly self-defense unlike the murdering unlicensed security guard NBC hired who shot a Trump supporter in cold blood. Could never happen for a black youth.smh😔 All you have to do is ask what an all black militia with one 17 year old kid getting into an altercation where people die and he is the one holding the gun... Just saying he wouldn’t even made it out of the scene much less made bail... I challenge anyone to convince me otherwise

Why I’m not surprised No Words? 😱 Can only hope kylie absconds and the bail bondsman is called in. So they forfeit their bail Totally ridiculous. The GOP and realDonaldTrump's followers paid their blood money to protect their ideological killer. 30 pieces of silver? I guess nowadays it takes 2 million. Their Jesus would still weep at their actions, though.

I’d be skeptical about where all that money goes. Remember Bannon and the Wall. Should be investigated. The grifter administration always takes care of itself. His cocky ass will be back in jail soon. MyPillowUSA supports murder? Why are murderous children with machine guns roaming our streets? Common sense gun laws please!

Ridiculous. MyPillowGuy promotes murder Highlights problems in the US judicial system. In many other first world countries, bail of any amount would not have been an option. Not self defense if you seek a confrontation. It’s premeditated. HE didn’t post anything, the evangelical lunatics fronted the cash

Great. a murderer,whose parents have weapons, is now loose. 17- AK rifle- crossed state lines -Shot 3 killed 2 - posted $2m bond WHATS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE Unbelievable! Accused of killing protesters who were trying to kill him, you meant to say. 'Gunman'? The guy is a TERRORIST. The kid was defending himself. He shouldn’t be another casualty of the insanity in the streets. He put out a fire that could have blown up a gas station and was hunted for doing so. He went with a Med kit to help the injured. He was armed to protect his life, which he did.

Ok but who paid for it!? Money = freedom in the USA Rape, murder, so many horrific crimes, should NEVER be allowed to pay money to be free. High school dropout raising $2 million bail for murder. Hmmm... legallybae It's time for cashless bail. His parents diminished his future. 17 years old should have guidance. Imagine his life if they told him to leave his loaded weapon at home.

Creepy cosplayer murderer Wtf ... he belongs in jail, he brought a weapon to kenosha wi. White privilege strikes again! He’s still going to jail. I hope he got his junior incel badge. The last two people he shot were going to kill him. The first guy he shot, I'm not so sure. Let’s all drive to another state where we hear there’s agitation and start shooting people there; My Pillow Guy apparently enjoys promoting murderers in his free time.

How about boycotting my pillow guys life Little psychopath is ready for his next kill. The “pro-life” party...right. Wonder who paid it.... must be some GOP donor He will not be convicted of murder. My prediction. One of the people he shot had a gun in their hand. I feel like this is lost on y'all. Nothing says broken more than this - so wrong

...and this is a good thing? Where did he get the money? Killer Don't know if his acts were in self-defense or intentional, but a good rule of thumb is to stay away from a fight. You get bail after murdering two people? How did he get that kind of money ? How If he were black he’d be dead. Atta boy. We’re all pulling for you son

Just a reminder, here is Rittenhouse sucker punching a girl this past summer. The NewRight lauds him as a hero and victim. He is a criminal and a punk. I wish I had a billion dollars in cash to give to Kyle. All counterfeit. Should not have been allowed bail Little asshat gets saved, while poor folks sit in jail due to lack of bail money.

disgusting... once again big money springs a criminal... not okay... White privilege at it’s finest! Little shit. A murderer set free. Unreal. Why this guy? Why bail out this little shit? So many innocent people in jail and this is the fucking kid that silver spoons bails out? SMFH... Hero. *Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old TERRORIST WHO KILLED protesters in Kenosha, Wis., in August, posted $2 million bail and was released from custody on Friday. *There, fixed your tweet.

Do we see the problem with cash bail yet?
