The prosecution and critics of Kyle Rittenhouse have said he should never have arrived at the Black Lives Matter protest scene with a weapon in the first place. But noted law professor Alan Dershowitz tells Newsmax Rittenhouse had a right to be there, and without a gun he would “probably be dead.”
Rittenhouse is on trial for killing two men and wounding a third during the BLM protest in Kenosha, Wis., when he was 17 years old. He said he wanted to be there to offer medical aid and put out fires.
“If he hadn’t gone there with a gun, he’d probably be dead,” Dershowitz said Thursday on “Spicer & Co.” “He went there with a gun because violence was threatened.”
