According to reports, Kyle Rittenhouse, the teen shooter that killed two people and wounded a third during protests in Kenosha, WI, following the police shooting of Jacob Blake, was released from Kenosha County Jail after posting a $2 million bond. Rittenhouse's release was met with much backlash, spearheaded by the families of the teen's victims. The families expressed concern that Rittenhouse could flee now that he is no longer in police custody.
Rittenhouse's bail was funded through a series of donations solicited by his attorney, who positioned the teen as a sympathetic figure on the right-wing. Families of the victims suggested Rittenhouse's bail be set for at least $10 million and called his claim of self-defense "impossible."
It's not immediately clear where Rittenhouse will reside pending trial. He previously lived with his mother in Antioch, IL, before the shootings but has moved since then, citing a concern for her safety. The next hearing is scheduled for Dec 3.
