Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager who crossed state lines with an illegally-owned gun and killed two people at a BLM protest, spoke out for the first time in a public setting since being charged. When asked if he had any remorse for what he had done, Rittenhouse said he regrets nothing.
“I was going into a place where people had guns, and God forbid somebody brought a gun to me and tried to shoot me,” Rittenhouse told the Washington Post. “So, I like wanted to be protected and I ended up having to protect myself.”
According to Rittenhouse, he was just protecting himself when he killed two people and wounded another.
“No I don’t regret it. I feel I had to protect myself. I feel like I would have died if I didn’t,” he said.
