The New York Times is reporting that a 17-year old suspect has been arrested in connection to one of the fatal shootings, and he’s not even from Kenosha.

An Illinois resident has been arrested in connection to a shooting that left two people dead and another person wounded during a chaotic night of demonstrations over the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wis., officials said on Wednesday.

A court document from Lake County, Ill., shows that Kyle Rittenhouse, 17, was arrested in Antioch, Ill., on Wednesday morning after being charged with first degree intentional homicide in the fatal shooting that took place only hours earlier. Antioch is about 30 minutes southwest of Kenosha, just over the Illinois line. More details were expected during a news conference on Wednesday afternoon.

The shooting took place during a third night of protests over the shooting of Mr. Blake and after demonstrators clashed with law enforcement officials near the County Courthouse downtown.

Maybe now would be a good time for those talking heads on TV to admit that burning and looting is not ‘just’ about property crime.

Better yet, can we stop using ‘peaceful protests’ as a euphemism for rage-fuelled riots?

It bears repeating that the Kenosha incident everyone is so worked up over in the first place just happens to have involved a man for whom a warrant was already outstanding, with charges including domestic violence and sexual assault, who had resisted arrest, who had not complied even after non-lethal force was used, and filming from another vantage point caught some struggles with the cop that the famous one didn’t include.

Which is the long way of saying this is hardly an open-and-shut-case of police brutality — despite anything that the Harris-Biden ticket (yes, that order was intentional) might have to say about the incident.

And now?

Now we’re on day 3 of destroying the property and businesses of people who had literally nothing to do with the incident itself.

And people are getting hurt.

Shot in the head … while looting a car shop.

Hey Alexandria Occasional-Cortex, do you suppose he went in there looking for a loaf of bread?

It’s too early to tell whether this other related was connected or not.

Daily Caller reporter Richie McGinniss is the guy pulling off his shirt and the first to help the man who was shot.

There is some speculation online that the man who was shot in the head was also a man who was in a tense situation at a gas station in Kenosha just moments before. The man believed to be the victim confronts one of the gun-carrying counter-protesters and calls him the n-word.

Is getting shot in the head REALLY worth scoring some ‘free s**t’ from a store? Of course not.

Do you know what could have helped him with this? For one thing, not participating in a riot.

For another, being raised with some actual values instead of this ‘social justice’ rage that fills the void where their morality should go.

This guy wasn’t the only one shot.

Kenosha Police issued a media release about an incident where shots were fired and there were “multiple gunshot victims.”

Videographer Richie McGinniss of the Daily Caller was one of the first on the scene — pulling off his shirt as he tried to help the man, who twitched as raised his head with a bullet wound on the right side of his head.

“Call the police!” several people shouted of the serious injury during massive anti-police riots.

McGinniss was then one of two men who helped carry away the injured man, his site said, as others screamed for him to be rushed to the hospital.

The shooter was reportedly the same man being chased in another graphic clip from the deadly riots — firing several shots from a rifle at people who attacked him after he fell.

The New York Post reports that the shootings were ‘sparked by rioters who confronted heavily armed civilians trying to protect a car dealership, according to a series of graphic videos.’

These reporters on the ground are doing the best that they can, but even they don’t know exactly what happened–they can’t be everywhere at once.

An investigation will be conducted. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, police are looking for a man with a long rifle believed to be involved with the shootings. They have seen the videos captured of the incidents and have called for more to be sent to them.

One witness report was captured here:

Here is what the sequence of events may have been. (Take this with a grain of salt.)

The thing is, when the police don’t put a stop to these riots, citizens will do it themselves. They won’t sit idly by while anarchy reigns supreme and businesses are torched because people are angry. That’s not ok.

President Trump knows this, and that’s why we need to back the blue.

If there’s one thing that’s been made clear during the last few months it’s this…

The ‘Thin Blue Line between order and chaos’ is real.

It’s also on the ballot in November.
