These from two of the comments sum it up pretty well....

Never fear. A scapegoat has been found.

Kyle Rittenhouse, a 17-year-old white boy from Antioch, Illinois, has been arrested for doing the job that the police could not do. Needless to say, Kyle Rittenhouse won’t be quietly released while our backs are turned.


Associated Press smear/excuse/minimize machine is in full gear.
“The man with the gun stumbles and falls, and as he is approached by people in the crowd, he fires three or four shots from a seated position, hitting at least two people, including one who falls over and another who stumbles away to cries of “Medic! Medic!””
Note how carefully they leave out the part about how one of the guys shot tried to bash him over the head with a skateboard and one of the guys had a hand gun. Meantime the man turns out to be a juvenile and he has been charged with “first-degree intentional homicide”.
There is a blame police part too: “According to witness accounts and video footage, police apparently let the young white man suspected of carrying out some or all of the shootings walk past them with a semi-automatic rifle over his shoulder as members of the crowd yelled for him to be arrested.”
