Kyle Rittenhouse is a badass, in my opinion.

I'm not referring to the kid's life philosophy; given what little is known about him, he appears to be a little naïve and even a little odd. Rather, I'm referring to his ability to perform under stress with a rifle. After being confronted by antifa rioters, his actions were decisive, near-flawless, and effective.

They were instrumental in saving his life.

Here's what I see now that the FBI's drone footage (thank you, FBI, for suppressing critical evidence that could've tamped down this situation before it became a national disaster) is accessible, along with snatches of cell-phone videos:

I witness a 17-year-old youngster carefully fleeing through a number of high-risk, low-light places while only engaging with three particular threats to his life. He fired his weapon eight times, resulting in eight hits, all while running, standing, sitting, or transitioning. His weapon retention was flawless while he fled, collapsed, was kicked in the head, avoided skateboards, and had a handgun pointed at him. He hit no innocents despite being high on excitement and possibly gulping air like a big man in a fistfight. As far as the record reveals, even his pass-throughs and ricochets were worthless. Do you realize how difficult this is, even with years of training and experience?

Consider the national hit rate average for police is around 30 percent.

From the facts, we know that he used a Smith & Wesson M&P AR-15, but he didn’t keep the rifle at his own home, but rather that of his 18-year-old friend, Dominick Black. He bought the sling for it the day he went to Kenosha. That he had any training with that specific weapon is very doubtful. Yet somehow he held it all together like a combat vet when it mattered most.

During most competitive shooters’ first actual match, the self-imposed pressure of the clock and an audience often turns seasoned shooters into wide-eyed idiots who struggle to hit a stationary paper target at 5 paces. During my first training course at Tactical Response, I physically couldn’t shoot and walk backward at the same time. Rittenhouse did it accurately, at night, with bullets flying, sirens wailing, and people–both friends and foes–running in all directions. 

He kept moving to avoid getting mauled by the mob, then held his hands up in the face of law enforcement as they passed by. Later that night he turned himself into authorities. Finally, and perhaps most impressively, he resisted running his mouth in the moments and months after the event–when the whole time he knew he was innocent despite being smeared for over a year by the leftist, narrative-driven pricks in the media. 

The coolness displayed by Rittenhouse on that fateful night was stunning. While it can be argued his decision to be there in the first place was stupid, fact is, the future LEO/EMT saw a crisis brewing in a nearby town and an opportunity to help. (There is video of him a few hours earlier scrubbing fresh graffiti from walls, protecting a local car dealership from vandalism and offering minor medical assistance to anyone who called for it.) 

Rittenhouse is a badass. 

And after hearing the self-damning testimony from his surviving attacker and seeing the video evidence supporting his plea of not guilty/self defense, he should go free.

Indeed, America needs more folks like Kyle Rittenhouse and less garbage in our streets.
