Video shows Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse punching a girl: report

From New York Post:

A new video appears to show alleged Kenosha killer Kyle Rittenhouse slugging a girl in the Wisconsin city, according to a report.

The shocking footage, shot July 1 and posted to Twitter, shows a young man alleged to be Rittenhouse landing haymakers on an unidentified girl who was scrapping with another female teen, according to the Journal Times.

Two Kenosha men who filmed the melee — Reese Granville and CJ Wakefield — said the teen throwing the punches was Rittenhouse, the outlet reported. The slugger is also wearing the same American flag Crocs that Rittenhouse wears in a widely circulated photo of the accused shooter from Facebook.

The melee begins when two unidentified girls get into an argument as several other people look on, clips show.

Moments later, one of the girls gets into a scuffle with a third girl — then Rittenhouse can be seen landing several punches on one of them from behind.

A second clip shows Rittenhouse, wearing red, white and blue shorts, being kicked several times, with a male voice heard saying, “Do not put your hands on a female (expletive),” the Journal Times reported. That video has since been removed from YouTube.

A woman’s voice is heard yelling, “Hey, stop,” on a third video.

Rittenhouse, 17, is charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the shooting deaths last week of two Black Lives Matter protesters in Kenosha and with the wounding of a third man.

Prosecutors said the teen, who is being held in his home state of Illinois while he awaits extradition proceedings, shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, last week while with an armed militia group seeking to protect businesses from looters.

Rittenhouse ran from the scene with protesters in pursuit but stumbled. Video from the night shows another man, 26-year-old Anthony Huber, swing a skateboard at the teen, before Rittenhouse gunned him down.

A third man, identified as Gaige Grosskreutz, 26, approached the teen and was shot in the arm. Images show that Grosskreutz was holding a handgun when he was shot.

Rittenhouse’s lawyers have argued the teen fired in self-defense

“Murder charges are factually unsupportable,” attorney L. Lin Wood said on Twitter last week. “An egregious miscarriage of justice is occurring with respect to this 17-year-old boy. I love truth & justice. I deplore lies & injustice.”
