After posting $2 million bail in November, Rittenhouse, 18, was seen drinking at a bar in Wisconsin, where it is legal to consume in the company of one’s parents. That, police stated, was not a crime.
However Kenosha County prosecutors on Wednesday said Rittenhouse– charged with killing two individuals at a Black Lives Matter protest in Kenosha last August– wasn’t simply there with mom, however with members of the far-right Proud Boys, an extremist group that has actually taken part in street violence against anti-racist activists, Milwaukee television station TMJ4 reported
