Actor Ricky Schroder defended his role in the Wisconsin Kenosha killer Kyle Rittenhouse on Tuesday on a $ 2 million bond, saying he was “angered” when he saw the teenager being teased in the press.
Schroder, an avid proponent of arms control and a 30-year-old member of the NRA, said in an exclusive telephone interview with The Post that he would raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for the bond and the 17-year-old defending himself. on 25 August, he was charged with the murder of two protesters and the murder of a third.
“It’s crazy,” Schroder said. “This boy is innocent and turns out to be innocent.” I did what any father should have done, and with that, a child was released from prison who didn’t deserve to be there.
With an allegedly illegally acquired rifle, Rittenhouse joined an armed militia group in Wisconsin to protect businesses from loot amid the riots that were the result of a police shooting that Jacob Blake blew up seven times over domestic riots.

Schroder said Rittenhouse’s case was nervous – he felt he was also abused by the media after his May 2019 arrest for allegedly hitting his old girlfriend, a case that was later dismissed.
“It was shit because everyone thought I was a nurse and I’m not a nurse,” she said. “They were prosecuted and convicted in the media court. But you have to understand, it was just this reputation that was ruined.
“It destroyed Kyle’s life,” Schroder said. “It is his freedom that is at stake. He was outraged when I saw an innocent 17-year-old man brought to justice and found guilty before trial. “
