The Daily Beast reports:
Kyle Rittenhouse’s mother, Wendy, has blamed protesters and law enforcement for a deadly night in Kenosha, Wisconsin that ended with her 17-year-old son fatally shooting two protesters.
Speaking to the Chicago Tribune, the 45-year-old said that the protesters shouldn’t have been there the night they were shot by her son, she blamed Kenosha police and state and local government for the deadly incident, and voiced her unwavering support for the Second Amendment.
According to the Tribune, she expressed little sympathy for the victims’ families. The mom refused to say if she knew her son owned the rifle—but she did say that she sees no problem with teenagers possessing powerful firearms if they have “respect” for the weapon.
