Key Witness For Prosecution In Rittenhouse Case Confirms Kyle Acted In Self-Defense

The remarkable amount of restraint that Kyle Rittenhouse showed during his defensive gun use, especially under the circumstances, is something lost on some people. While this incident isn’t without controversy, one thing is clear: Rittenhouse only fired when he felt that his life was in danger.

Gaige Grosskreutz was the person shot by Rittenhouse who was holding a handgun and eventually pointed it at him. During his testimony, Grosskreutz said that he was concerned for the safety of Rittenhouse as he was being attacked.

Grosskreutz, while questioned by Rittenhouse defense lawyer, Corey Chirafisi, admitted that as a medic, he was concerned for Kyle Rittenhouse’s safety as he watched a man kick the armed 17-year-old in the head and another man slam the teen’s head with a skateboard multiple times. Rittenhouse shot and killed skateboarder Anthony Huber as he grabbed for Rittenhouse’s gun.


I can appreciate that Grosskreutz was going with the crowd and assumed that Rittenhouse just shot someone in cold blood, or maybe not. Knowing the totality of what’s going on before pointing your gun at someone is essential.

If someone is being attacked in front of you, they’re likely the victim. Grosskreutz is now on record stating that he wasn’t shot by Rittenhouse until he pointed his handgun at him. That’s because Rittenhouse showed restraint and isn’t a murderer.

He is, however, a man ready to defend himself with lethal force if his life is in danger, and not a moment sooner.
