Kyle Rittenhouse shot three attackers who mobbed him during a leftist riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Aug. 25, 2020. Two of the three are no more. He was cleared of all charges in 2021.
Despite being found not guilty by a jury of his peers, Rittenhouse has since had to fight various efforts to paint him as a villain and to punish him for defending himself.
Texas Scorecard reported that the suit names Rittenhouse as a defendant along with local sheriff’s departments, Kenosha officials, the City of Kenosha, the City of West Allis, and various counties, demanding “compensatory and punitive damages” for the “wrongful death” of Rosenbaum.
The Washington Post noted that Rosenbaum spent most of his adult life in prison after preying upon five preteen boys.
It appears his life on the outside was marked by rage and rootlessness. For instance, one month prior to his demise, Rosenbaum’s fiancée, Kariann Swart, pressed charges against him for domestic abuse.
