Kyle Rittenhouse has sparked a revolution rocking the core of the criminal justice system after donors lined up in masses to foot the bill for a rockstar defense team, and Your Content has learned the funds are officially secured.

“Efforts to secure defense counsel for Kyle Rittenhouse were successful due to efforts of Marina Medvin, Michelle Malkin & John Pierce.” defense attorney L. Wood confirmed late Thursday night.

“And because of the efforts of my Followers who light the fires of truth & justice for ALL. Thank you.”

Footage from earlier in the night appeared to show the teen guarding a local car shop with a group of armed militia members. Another video showed police thanking an armed group, of which the teenager appeared to be part of, and offering them water.

Rittenhouse was among the volunteers spotted earlier on Tuesday cleaning graffiti from a high school following another night of unrest in the city.

Much of Rittenhouse’s Facebook is devoted to praising law enforcement, with references to Blue Lives Matter – the movement that supports police. He also can be seen holding an assault rifle in several photos.

He once participated in a youth public safety cadet program and a photo from that time showed him dressed in what appears to be a blue law enforcement uniform.

News of Rittenhouse’s arrest came as President Trump said Wisconsin officials had accepted federal law enforcement support following several days of unrest across the city in the wake of the police shooting of black man Jacob Blake.

The videos show the gunman stumbling and falling in the street before one pursuer took a flying kick at him, while another appeared to strike him with a skateboard.

Separate videos that captured the other two shootings showed a group of protesters tailing the gunman as he ran down the middle of the street. Someone in the crowd can be heard asking ‘What did he do?’ and another responds that the man had shot someone.
