The past of the man who was shot and killed by Kyle Rittenhouse in Kenosha Wisconsin during a night of riots and extreme violence in 2020 has now been revealed.
Records now show that Joseph Rosenbaum was previously convicted of raping five boys before he was killed by Rittenhouse.
As The Kenosha Reporter notes:
Newly revealed records contain graphic descriptions of sexual abuse for which Rosenbaum was convicted.
“Per documents from the Superior Court of Arizona in Pima County, the crimes for which Kyle Rittenhouse’s 1st attacker, Joseph Don Rosenbaum, was imprisoned and made to register as a sex offender involved the molestation and rape of five separate boys between the ages of 9 and 11,” Trevor Sutcliffe tweeted.
Rosenbaum can be seen chasing Rittenhouse on footage taken just prior to the shooting and throwing a molotov cocktail at him.
The Rittenhouse trial is currently underway, with Rittenhouse’s lawyer claiming that his client acted in self defense on the night he killed Rosenbaum and another man.
