Who was Joseph D. Rosenbaum?

Joseph D. Rosenbaum was 36 years old when he was one of two protesters who were shot during the fiery protests in Kenosha following the police-involved shooting of Jacob Blake.

Rosenbaum reportedly had battled bipolar disorder and was homeless, according to The Washington Post, which claimed he had been discharged from a hospital earlier in the day after a suicide attempt. 

He is said to have spent more than a decade in prison in Arizona after being convicted of sexual conduct with a minor.

...He wasn't down there as a rioter or a looter,... Rosenbaum's fiancée told the Post in reference to August 25. ...Why was he there? I have no answer. I ask myself that question every day....

Who killed him in the Kenosha protests?

Rosenbaum was one of the victims shot by Illinois teenager Kyle Rittenhouse, 18, according to authorities.

He left behind his 3-year-old daughter in Texas and a fiancée.

What was Kyle Rittenhouse accused of? 

Rittenhouse was accused of murdering Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, 26, as well as attempting to murder Gaige Grosskreutz.

According to Twitter, Huber was a talented skateboarder and a GoFundMe page was created by Huber's relatives to help his girlfriend Hannah Gittings. 

It was created to raise money for Huber's funeral costs and other expenses incurred by his loss.

What happened in the Kyle Rittenhouse shooting?

Rittenhouse was arrested by police in August 2020 and charged with first-degree murder for shooting two people.

He allegedly fled Wisconsin for his home state following the shooting.

It is unclear if Rittenhouse is a member of the Kenosha Guard Militia.

Although it is unclear if Rittenhouse is a member of the Kenosha Guard Militia, a video surfaced online that showed Rittenhouse with members of the militia getting bottles of water from a law enforcement officer in an armored vehicle.

Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth, who appeared at the same event, said deputies would toss water to anyone.

...If someone came walking past, I don't care if they're a protester or who they are, they would pass water,... he said. 

...We have cases. People have come to our command posts ... We have pallets of water and Gatorade....

Another militia group called the boogaloo also attended the demonstrations in Kenosha.

A member named Justin Mishler claimed they are not affiliated with the Kenosha militia and he also said Rittenhouse is not affiliated with the boogaloos.

...He's not one of us,... Mishler said of Rittenhouse in 2020.
