In a surprising turn of events, the New York Times has done some actual, real investigative reporting and confirmed Revolver’s conclusion that the Kyle Rittenhouse shooting is an open-and-shut case of self-defense. Shockingly, the evidence turned up by the New York Times actually strengthens the case for self-defense.

It turns out that, before the first shooting, Rittenhouse was being chased by a gunman who actually fired a shot into the air. This little detail was actually missed by Revolver News in our initial review of the evidence. We did not realize that, in the first shooting, Rittenhouse was being chased by a gunman.

From the NYT analysis:

First shooting

While Mr. Rittenhouse is being pursued by the group, an unknown gunman fires into the air, though it’s unclear why. The weapon’s muzzle flash appears in footage filmed at the scene.

Mr. Rittenhouse turns toward the sound of gunfire as another pursuer lunges toward him from the same direction. Mr. Rittenhouse then fires four times, and appears to shoot the man in the head. [New York Times]

Only in a truly clownish world can a man who is being chased by an armed mob not fire a gun in self-defense after exhausting his duty to retreat.

Revolver News completely agrees with the New York Times analysis of the first shooting.

All three shooting victims, in addition to being affiliated with the notorious Black Lives Matter and Antifa gangs, have criminal records.

Furthermore, Huber has an apparent history of extreme violence and heroin addiction.

CORRECTION: It has been brought to our attention that the Anthony Huber arrested for heroin is not the same as the Anthony Huber who was shot and killed. Huber’s criminal record instead includes a 2012 conviction for strangulation and false imprisonment in a domestic abuse incident.

There can only be one conclusion.

Free Kyle Rittenhouse.
