The Disturbing Story of the Rittenhouse Case's Mysterious 'Jump Kick Man'

The enduring mystery of the Kyle Rittenhouse criminal trial, which went to a jury Tuesday, has been the identity of "Jump Kick Man." As Rittenhouse ran away from a crowd of people, he testified that one of the pursuers hit him in the head with his skateboard. When Rittenhouse fell to the ground, Jump Kick Man flew through the air and stomped on his head. Rittenhouse fired two shots at Jump Kick Man, but missed.

Almost immediately, the man who had struck Rittenhouse with his skateboard, Anthony Huber, hit him with the skateboard again, and Rittenhouse fired a single round, killing Huber. A third man, Gaige Grosskreutz, saw this and approached Rittenhouse with his hands up. However, when Rittenhouse looked down for a split second, Grosskreutz pulled out a handgun and pointed it at Rittenhouse's head. Rittenhouse fired a single shot, striking Grosskreutz in the arm.

Jump Kick Man, whose attack on Rittenhouse (and Rittenhouse's subsequent response) arguably led to both Huber's and Grosskreutz's actions (and Rittenhouse's response to them), has never been identified--until now.

  1. ...and of course the prosecution didn't identify "jump kick man" to the defense, as is usual when the potential witness could have damaged the state's case.

    1. That would be a third strike on prosecutorial misconduct. Likely trigger dismissal with prejudice.

    2. @Trumpeter - When was the last time any prosecutor, anywhere, was held accountable for prosecutorial misconduct? Cops and DA's routinely withhold exculpatory evidence from the defense. It's been going since forever. It won't end until a whole bunch of these assholes do hard time. I don't see that happening until there's a whole forced attitude change in the entire law enforcement/judiciary community in this country.

      Don't forget, all of these people; prosecutors, police and defense lawyers, are all "members of the court" and they do and will protect their own.

    3. " When was the last time any prosecutor, anywhere, was held accountable for prosecutorial misconduct?"

      Mike Nifong in NC. One in Georgia currently. Pretty sure there was one in the Philly area, too within the last couple of years. It happens, but not often.

    4. Sadly true, but this judge seemed sensitized by the prosecution's two previous attempts at a mistrial.

    5. Nifong was 'punished' with 1 day in jail (don't even think it was an overnight) + a book deal to make up for suspension of his law license

  6. There have been some reports that two jurors are holding up the deliberations because they are afraid of threats made against them and their families. That is the rumor, take it for what you will.

  8. I think he hit him in the leg. Did you see him limp off in the original videos when this went down?
