Kyle Rittenhouse walked out of jail on Friday after his attorney paid the $2 million cash bond that a judge set earlier this month.
Rittenhouse is accused of shooting and killing two people during protests in Kenosha.
On October 30, Rittenhouse was sent back to Wisconsin to face homicide charges by an Illinois judge.
Rittenhouse is charged with “first-degree intentional homicide for the death of Anthony Huber, 26 of Silver Lake, attempted first-degree intentional homicide for the shooting of Gauge Grosskreutz, 26 of West Allis, and first-degree reckless homicide for the death of Joseph Rosenbaum, 36 of Kenosha,” the criminal complaint reads.
Rittenhouse also faces charges of two counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety for shooting his AR-15-style rifle toward other people in a crowd and possession of a dangerous weapon by an individual under the age of 18.
The deadly incident took place back on August 25, after the shooting of Jacob Blake in the back by white officers sparked massive protests.
Rittenhouse was driven to Kenosha by his mother with an assault rifle he was too young to legally possess. Rittenhouse said that he traveled to Kenosha to protect local businesses.
Some individuals see Rittenhouse as a patriot for exercising his Second Amendment right to bear arms. However, most see Rittenhouse as a domestic terrorist who created violence by bringing an assault rifle to Kenosha.
On Friday, Rittenhouse’s attorney, Lin Wood, used Twitter to thank all those who donated to his client’s bond.
“God bless ALL Who donated to help #FightBack raise required $2M cash bail.”
Wood went on to give a shoutout to actor Ricky Schroder and Mike Lindell, the CEO of MyPillow for “putting us over the top.”
Later Wood tweeted a picture of Rittenhouse with John Pierce, another attorney who represents the teen, and Schroder.

“Thank you, All Donors. Thank you, All Patriots. Thank God Almighty,” the tweet read.
Once word got out about Schroder helping, social media was quick to condemn him. However, Schroder seems to have deleted his entire Twitter library and moved to far right social media app Parler (pronounced par-LAY).

Yet after this shares another tweet with Rittenhouse, his mother, and calls for everyone to leave Twitter en mass.
Morning from Kyle & his Mom Wendy. In America we are ALL innocent until a jury of peers decides guilt or innocence, not the Mob or Press. When the facts are known, many of you will owe this young man an Apology. Move to PARLER everyone….leave Twitter. Jack Dorsey Sucks! pic.twitter.com/nbLVvj2LqM— Ricky Schroder (@rickyschroder13) November 22, 2020
Rittenhouse will have his day in court. Schroder seems to want to be part of that plan, no matter how harebrained it seems.
