Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old Kenosha shooter, is claiming that he acted in self-defense when he shot and killed two people and wounded another while he was playing pretend police officer during protests against police brutality in the city last week. Rittenhouse has also seen support from many conservatives who viewed him as a peacekeeper during the riots. However, new video footage has emerged which illustrates that he has a history of violence. The video shows Rittenhouse punching a girl multiple times in the back of the head during an altercation.

The video was reportedly taken on July 1st, in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and shows Rittenhouse jumping into a fight between two girls before viciously punching one of the girls as hard as he can. Bystanders can be heard cheering him on saying “Go, Kyle, go,” while others can be heard expressing their shock about his actions.

Eventually, some of the bystanders jumped in to defend the girl that Rittenhouse was attacking, causing him to flee very quickly. It is still unclear how the fight began or how Rittenhouse knew the other people involved. In the video, Rittenhouse appears to be wearing the same pair of American flag-themed crocs that he wore in some of the photos on his Facebook page.

Former classmates of Rittenhouse at Lakes Community High School told VICE News that he was notorious for having a bad temper and going out of his way to start arguments with people who he perceived of having left-wing political opinions.

“He was definitely in your face and pushed his views hella,” said one classmate.

“I personally believe he went to Wisconsin with the intent to kill,” another said.

Multiple students at the school said that they always thought of him as a potential school shooter.

 

“[Rittenhouse] went to middle school with my little sister and she said that everyone always thought of him to be a possible future shooter … and so did I when I met him in high school,” one student said.

Fellow students also described him as having a strange obsession with police, President Donald Trump, and guns.

Rittenhouse had traveled to the protests with a militia group that organized online and claimed to be assisting police and protecting private property during the demonstrations. The details of exactly what happened are still being investigated and debated, but at some point during the protest, Rittenhouse shot a protester multiple times in the back, and in the back of the head.

Rittenhouse then began to try to get away from the area, but protesters who witnessed the shooting chased after him and tried to stop him. When the group caught up with Rittenhouse, another person was shot and killed after a short scuffle. After that, Rittenhouse was able to walk right past the police and leave the city. In one of the videos taken by witnesses, Rittenhouse can be heard saying “I just killed somebody.”

Rittenhouse is currently facing two felony charges of homicide and a felony attempted homicide charge He has also been charged with possession of a dangerous weapon while under the age of 18, which is a misdemeanor.

Tsunami Warning Issued After 7.5 Magnitude Earthquake

The National Tsunami Warning Center in Palmer, Alaska, has issued tsunami warnings for a large area along the Alaska Peninsula coastline, after an earthquake near the coast.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the quake struck about 62 miles southeast of Sand Point at 12:54 p.m. The epicenter is roughly 575 miles southwest of Anchorage. The size of the quake was originally reported to have been a magnitude of 7.4, but has been revised to a 7.5.

The warning extended from Kennedy Entrance, 40 miles southwest of Homer, to Unimak Pass, but the warnings do not include Cook Inlet or Anchorage. The National Tsunami Warning Center said the tsunami warning was in effect for roughly 950 miles (1,529 kilometers), from 40 miles (64 kilometers) southeast of Homer to Unimak Pass, about 80 miles (129 km) northeast of Unalaska.

Raynelle Gardner, a secretary at Sand Point School in the Aleutians East Borough School District is in the middle of the evacuation zone, and told reporters that she and the other employees are seeking higher ground.

Paul Caruso, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey said that while they may not happen all the time, quakes are expected to happen in this area from time to time.

“This is an area where the Pacific Plate is subducting underneath the North American Plate. And because of that, the Pacific Plate actually goes underneath the North American Plate, where it melts,” Caruso told the Associated Press, adding that volcanoes add to the trouble.

“And so we commonly have large, magnitude 7 earthquakes in that area,” Caruso said.

Monday’s earthquake was an aftershock of the 7.8 earthquake that struck the same area in July, State Seismologist Michael West told Anchorage Daily News. The earthquake triggered a number of its own aftershocks shortly after, ranging from 3.5 to 5.9 magnitude. West said additional aftershocks will continue in the area for days after.

Luckily, no damage or injuries have been reported thus far.

Cop Who Showed Off Nude Photos Of Murder Victim Faces No Charges

Former Salt Lake City Police Officer Miguel Deras shared explicit photos of a 21-year-old murder victim with his friends just before she was killed by her stalker in 2018. The victim, Lauren McCluskey, was a student at the University of Utah, and she went to the police numerous times about her stalker, but they did nothing to help, which is typical in stalking cases.

Earlier this week, the Salt Lake County District Attorney’s Office announced that Deras will not be facing any criminal charges for his actions, according to the Salt Lake Tribune. Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill said that while Deras was “definitely reckless,” he technically didn’t break any laws.

“We realized there was no real statute we could use for this case. We’re incensed like everyone else by the behavior. It was inappropriate. But if there’s not a statute, there’s nothing we can do,” Gil said.

In 2018, McCluskey was shot and killed by her stalker Melvin Shawn Rowland, a 38-year-old man that she previously dated, but stopped seeing because he lied about his age and his status as a convicted sex offender. In the weeks leading up to the killing, Rowland was relentlessly harassing McCluskey, and also attempting to blackmail her with explicit photos that were shared during their brief relationship.

McCluskey contacted campus police to report the harassment and she dealt with officer Deras. She gave Deras a copy of the communications that she had with the stalker in hopes that it would help them with their investigation, and these communications included the explicit photos that she was concerned the stalker would leak.

Instead of taking the matter seriously, Deras shared the photos with at least three of his male co-workers who were not involved in the case. An investigation by the Utah Department of Public Safety also found that Deras and his friends made lewd comments about the images.

Transcripts of 911 calls made by McCluskey before her death shows that she complained about how her case was being handled.

District Attorney Sim Gill is being accused of intentionally failing to prosecute Deras because there was actually a statute that he could be charged under, but the time limitation had expired by just one day when he made his decision.

“We just got it so late and were limited in what options we had,” Gill said.

Attorney Jim McConkie, who is representing the McCluskey family, says that she went to the police to report abusive behavior, and they abused her again by sharing those photos.

“What Gill is saying to women with this decision is, ‘We can’t help you. Don’t come to us,’” McConkie said.

This is just one of many cases that is bringing prosecutorial powers into question. Similar complaints have arisen in the case of Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky, where the state’s Attorney General Daniel Cameron has been accused of going to great lengths to protect the police officers involved in the killing.

Prosecutors are essentially on the same team as the police, and the same goes with the judge as well, which represents a very serious conflict of interest.

Trump Acknowledged UFO Program Before Boasting Of US Military Superiority Against Aliens

US President Donald Trump was recently asked about a new task force at the Pentagon that is studying UFOs. Trump did not give any direct answers about the program specifically, and told reporters that he would “look into it.” He said he had heard about the program just a few days ago and needed to check on the details but then started to go off script and talk about how the United States military is the most powerful in the world. While not directly threatening military action against aliens, he was certainly suggesting that it was a situation that could be dealt with militarily.

Fox News anchor Maria Bartiromo asked Trump, “Can you explain why the Department of Defense has set up a UFO task force? Are there UFOs?”

“Well, I’m going to have to check on that. I mean, I’ve heard that. I heard that two days ago. So I’ll check on that. I’ll take a good, strong look at that,” Trump replied.

However, his following comments caught everyone off-guard.

“I will tell you this: We have now created a military the likes of which we have never had before. In terms of equipment, the—the equipment we have, the weapons we have, and hope to god we never have to use it. But have created a military the likes of which nobody has, nobody has, ever had. Russia, China, they’re all envious of what we had. All built in the USA. We’ve rebuilt it all—$2.5 trillion dollars. As far as the other question I’ll check on it, I heard about it two days ago actually,” Trump said.

Kyle Mizakomi, of Popular Mechanics, suggested in a recent article that Trump may have been threatening aliens with military force, or at the very least suggesting that the US military is equipped to handle such a threat. He did not explicitly say that the US government was prepared to go to war with aliens, but the fact that he answered a question about aliens with a response about military capabilities has left many people wondering what he meant.

The formation of this new task force is something that has been in motion for a long time, since the Pentagon released declassified videos to the public which showed government aircraft interacting with UFOs in the sky.

In a press release earlier this year confirming the authenticity of the videos, the US Department of Defense said, “DOD is releasing the videos in order to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, or whether or not there is more to the videos. The aerial phenomena observed in the videos remain characterized as ‘unidentified.’”

In June, the Senate Intelligence Committee voted to investigate the phenomenon after reviewing the videos.

The footage that provoked this renewed interest in UFOs was captured in 2014 and 2015. One of the videos, taken from US Navy aircraft, seems to show the pilots chasing a UFO off the east coast of the United States. Navy pilots reported spotting the objects flying around 30,000 feet in the air at hypersonic speeds and showing no visible engines or exhaust plumes typical of any known aircraft currently on Earth.

Some of the footage can be viewed below:

The three declassified videos captured by the Navy have been dubbed “FLIR1”, “Gimbal” and “Go Fast”. They show Navy pilots tracking the unidentified aerial phenomena as well as one incident where a Navy pilot nearly collided with one of the crafts near the state of Virginia. These videos were initially released in 2018, but were not officially recognized and published by the pentagon until earlier this year.
