Mo Brooks believes the Kyle Rittenhouse shooting in Kenosha is clear case of ‘self-defense’
Many talking heads have already indicted, tried and convicted Kyle Rittenhouse for the shooting of multiple attackers in Kenosha, Wisconsin, where two of them died.
Irresponsible behavior is nothing new to our friends in the media, but they are really ramping it up ahead of the 2020 presidential election.
"What you see the president doing is doubling down and really going to this part of his base… that think that it's okay for a 17-year-old to shoot people in the street who are unarmed, who are at a protest…" – @Yamiche w/ @NicolleDWallace pic.twitter.com/k3raRKbEnP

One Alabama congressman has experience actually prosecuting criminals, and he sees the situation in Kenosha very differently than the media and their Democrats’ talking point on this issue.
U.S. Representative Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) was a prosecutor in Tuscaloosa and Madison County, and his own website mentions that he “he earned a solid ‘tough-on-crime’ reputation” while holding those positions.
Earlier this week, Brooks joined WVNN’s “The Dale Jackson Show” to talk about the nuts-and-bolts of Rittenhouse’s case and expressed that much of this seems to be a political reaction rather than a law and order one.
While discussing the case, he said the video makes a pretty clear argument for a self-defense case. He believes that Rittenhouse is lucky this video exists.
He advised, “Fortunately, we have the internet and you can see video, and you can say in Kenosha, Wisconsin, see the young lad, 17-year-old, with his rifle as he’s fleeing trying to protect himself from people who are trying to attack him.”
Brooks also takes issue with the media’s crafting of this story to fit the ludicrous narrative that President Donald Trump supporters are the ones committing acts of violence across the country.
“[B]efore that video, you might actually believe the Democrat and media garbage about how he ought to be prosecuted, but it’s quite clear that he engaged in self-defense,” he stated.
Brooks noted later in the interview that anything can happen with a prosecutor or with a jury trial, but what he has seen clearly makes the case for self-defense.
“The only real question is whether the self-defense force used, deadly force, was the level of self-defense force that should be used,” Brooks said Tuesday.
While Brooks believes this is clear self-defense, it is also clear that the media is in the middle of creating a narrative of right-wing violence so they can be seen condemning it. This allows them to not have to come out against the Joe Biden supporters tearing American cities apart.
But, much like the Rittenhouse case, we have tons of video that tells the real story.
