Three rioters shot in Kenosha had criminal backgrounds, one had ties to ‘militant group’

The three rioters who were shot after reportedly attacking a 17-year-old guarding a Kenosha, Wisconsin, business all had criminal records, according to several sources.

Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber were killed during a violent encounter with 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, an armed volunteer who was reportedly defending businesses at the time when he repeatedly came under attack by rioters. Gaige Grosskreutz was also wounded during the exchange.

Independent journalist Andy Ngo, along with other sources, quickly scoured the backgrounds of the three alleged attackers- making grim discoveries.

“Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, was the first one killed. Video allegedly shows him chasing teen shooter & throwing something at him,” Ngo wrote. “Rosenbaum was a registered sex offender for a sex crime involving a minor.”

The second man killed, reports indicate, was Anthony Huber.

“Anthony Huber, 26, was shot & killed in Kenosha, Wisc. at the BLM riot,” read the Twitter-based report. “He was filmed chasing down the armed teen and hitting him when he was on the ground with a skateboard. He has a criminal history that includes charges of battery & repeat domestic abuse.”

The third man, who was injured but survived after losing much of his bicep, was armed with a Glock handgun- despite allegedly being prohibited from possessing firearms.

Interestingly, he is reported to be affiliated with a far-left movement that some claim to be “a Marxist oriented militant group that was formed in 2016.”

“Gaige Grosskreutz, 26. He’s a member of the People’s Revolution Movement,” Ngo noted. “He was filmed chasing after the teen w/a pistol. He was shot at close-range in the upper arm. He has a criminal record that includes being intoxicated & armed [with a] gun.”

All over the internet, arrest reports, court findings and criminal background began popping up, including one rather small instance propped up by supporters of the three men: a traffic violation committed by Rittenhouse.

The incident is currently under investigation, and Rittenhouse has been charged with First-Degree Murder.
