TBH I would say that whether or not his actions in other fights on the night are justified is irrelevent for what he's been charged with. So far as I can see, 5 out of the 6 charges relate to the shooting of the guys that attacked him on the ground and out of those, only charge 6 doesn't relate to a self defence, defence, charge 6 being possession of the firearm by someone under 18. To that end, if he can show self defence, 5 out of the 6 charges should go away. Personally, as an outsider not only to the case but the country, I have to feel him being charged is pollitically motivated. I'm not familiar with US laws, but purely from the video, the guy was being attacked on the ground and had no choice but to defend himself. I don't want to say too much in case it's seen as prejudicial to the casse against him. However, I personally believe the shooting was justified from what I saw.I think he has at least has 2 cases of self-defense justified and possibly a 3rd. But don't be so quick to embrace the kid yet, there is a video of him punching a female in a fight with another girl and it does appear to be him but it's missing a lot of context. The optics are not good when you are punching a woman, ie. the guy that punched two women attacking him at the hotdog stand in Hollywood. It shouldn't take away from what happened in Kenosha but it's going to affect his character as this kid who cleaned up graffiti and put out a dumpster fire.
If it's one thing the left can teach us, don't make a hero out of a zero so quickly.
