San Francisco DA Blasts 'White Shooter' Kyle Rittenhouse: 'Motivated By Racial Bias'
Chesa Boudin makes remarks despite those shot both being white
Far-left San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin took aim at Kyle Rittenhouse following the news of his cash bail by citing "strong evidence" of "racial bias."
17-year-old Rittenhouse made headlines during the Kenosha riots earlier this year for shooting and killing two people in what he claims was self-defense.
Rittenhouse was posted $2 million bail on Friday.
The criminal complaint against Rittenhouse reads as Rittenhouse acted in self-defense.
Some videos suggest Rittenhouse's self-defense claims are valid.
Rittenhouse faces a mandatory life sentence in prison if convicted.
Boudin said that Rittenhouse's bail proves the "failings of money bail."
The District Attorney used race to attack Rittenhouse.
"Anyone want to understand the failings of money bail?" Boudin said.

Look no further: strong evidence of a white shooter motivated by racial bias committing a double murder with an assault rifle.

"Look no further: strong evidence of a white shooter motivated by racial bias committing a double murder with an assault rifle. But wealth sets him free."
Despite Boudin's remarks, the men whom Rittenhouse shot and killed were white.
Boudin once worked for the late Venezuelan socialist dictator Hugo Chavez before being elected as San Fransisco's top prosecutor last year.
Socialist Boudin implemented numerous far-left reforms to San Francisco's criminal justice system, including ending cash bail.
Boudin argues that cash bail is a "discriminatory and unsafe approach to pretrial detention."
Boudin argued cash bail is essentially racist.
From his office:
Money bail has disproportionately impacted our poorest communities as well as communities of color. In San Francisco, African-Americans pay over $120 per capita per year in non-refundable bail fees compared to $10 per capita per year for white individuals. Additionally, since 99% of people who post bail in San Francisco use private bail bond companies, there is an instant and dramatic transfer of wealth from low-income neighborhoods and communities of color to private industry; roughly $10-$15 million in non-refundable fees are paid annually to bail bond agencies.
Earlier this year, Rittenhouse's legal team sued Joe Biden's presidential campaign over claims he is a white supremacist.
