TV host Piers Morgan asked Kyle Rittenhouse on his show “Piers Morgan Uncensored” Wednesday about how he felt about the 2020 shooting of three people in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
A Wisconsin jury acquitted Rittenhouse in November 2021 of murder charges stemming from the shooting of two rioters in August 2020 in self-defense. “You killed two people and injured a third,” Morgan said. “I’m just curious as to what that feels like.” (Related article: When Democrats ask pro-life voters about January 6th and the ‘MAGA’ threat to democracy, they bring up the 2020 riots)

“I don’t think asking how you’re feeling is the right question,” Rittenhouse replied. “It’s not an easy thing to realize and I live with it every day. It’s a nightmare for me and something I’ve had to deal with. I have PTSD and I live with it every day. I had to deal with the trauma I had to deal with.”
The violence in Kenosha began when police shot and paralyzed Jacob Blake as they tried to take him into custody. The officer who shot and killed Blake was reinstated without being charged.
Rittenhouse shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum after Rosenbaum reached for the AR-15 rifle that Rittenhouse was carrying, then shot and killed Anthony Huber after Huber used a skateboard to attack the boy. did. Rittenhouse shot and killed Gaige Grosskreutz after Grosskreutz pointed a pistol at him.
“It seems to me that your feelings are about you and your trauma, because your life was threatened, and that aspect of it, and what I’m asking about is just the human level. The question wasn’t Bell’s, but what are you doing? Regardless of the circumstances, now that you’ve taken two lives, you feel like you’re going to be remembered for the rest of your life at such a young age,” Morgan said.
“Like I said, it’s something I deal with every day,” Rittenhouse responded. “I’m dealing with PTSD, trauma, nightmares. It’s not easy to deal with that.”
According to a 2020 study by Princeton University’s US Crisis Monitor, more than 91% of the 637 riots that occurred between May 26, 2020 and September 12, 2020 were related to Black Lives Matter.
