NBC News reports:
Kyle Rittenhouse, the Illinois teen charged with fatally shooting two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, was released from the Kenosha County Jail Monday after posting $2 million bond, according to authorities.
Rittenhouse’s bond was posted at 2 p.m. Friday, according to the Kenosha County Sheriff’s office. In a tweet Friday, Rittenhouse’s attorney Lin Wood said “God bless ALL Who donated to help #FightBack raise required $2M cash bail.”
Wood also gave a shoutout to actor Ricky Schroder and Mike Lindell, the CEO of MyPillow for “putting us over the top.” Later in the evening, Wood tweeted a picture of Rittenhouse alongside John Pierce, another attorney who represents the teen, and Schroder.
Schroder, Lindell, and the 80s sitcom “Silver Spoons” are all at the top of Twitter’s trending list this morning.
