Kenosha protester who was shot in the arm cries as he tells his side of story: ‘I was there to help’
September 12, 2020 | Frieda Powers

The Kenosha protester who was shot when he rushed at 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse armed with a gun asserted in a new CNN interview that he is “not an Antifa terrorist organizer.”

In fact, Gaige Grosskreutz told the outlet, he drove from his home in Milwaukee to Kenosha to attend the protest last month and was planning to be on hand “to help people” as a paramedic before having part of his arm blown off in the exchange with Rittenhouse.



In an interview where CNN described Grosskreutz as the “sole survivor” of the shootings that night, the 22-year-old maintained that he is “not a felon,” has a license to carry his firearm and that Rittenhouse, who discharged his weapon after being chased and confronted by aggressive protesters, basically should not have pulled the trigger.

“I was shot point blank with a .223 round from the shooter,” Grosskreutz told CNN. “And I am now missing 90% of my bicep. This has not been easy emotionally, physically. I’m in constant pain, like excruciating pain that just doesn’t go away — both in my arm, in my heart.”

Grosskreutz’ lawyer, Kimberley Motley, claimed her client, who had worked as a paramedic, had headed to the area “to try to provide assistance to everybody indiscriminately.”

He was there to help. Thats why he was chasing the kid with a gun drawn.

Speaking of which I wonder where that gun is today.

He only had the pistol in his hand to put the kid out of his misery because he hates to see suffering.

I guess the next thing we will hear about is his Go Fund Me (or whatever the hell it is) page being set up so he can hold a pity party in Paris.

I guess he doesn't remember being recorded saying he wished he had shot the guy before he got that close.

For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism.

Did he miss the part about Medics not trying to kill somebody with a pistol?  Too bad for him the pictures of him holding a gun are replicated all over the internet.

This guy is just another POS leftist.  And what a surprise that it’s CNN giving him the time of day.

“I was shot point blank with a .223 round from the shooter,” Grosskreutz told CNN. “And I am now missing 90% of my bicep.”

As I’ve said elsewhere.  Kyle put two dirtbags in the ground and the third had better be working on his left handed penmanship.  Sucks for him.  Consequence of life’s decisions frequently have that effect.

He would certainly have killed Rittenhouse execution style if Rittenhouse had not been armed.
If he came there "to help people", why was he carrying a gun?
There are military medics who will not carry arms. In their mind, that is not what they are there for.
This communist thug only regrets that he was shot before he was able to fire first.
And the most sad part of the whole thing, is that the thug Brownshirt will become the hero.

You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.

But then, this is CNN. It only makes sense that they are trying to make him out to be a martyr for 'the cause'.

Of course, he will only become one if people fall for the cropped images (without the gun or his hand) and BS that doesn't show him drawing the pistol on Kyle. I think that ship has sailed. With COVID, airport traffic is down, and there aren't the captive audiences to indoctrinate any more.

He "...was there to help" as a paramedic?

Okay.  I'll buy that.

In fairness, it was Kyle Rittenhouse who frantically answered Grosskreut's yelling to Rittenhouse, "WHAT HAPPENED?"... as he was running past him in fear..."I just [shot/killed somebody!"

Grosskreutz, not knowing if Rittenhouse was the aggressor at that time, stupidly changed for being a "paramedic", to a self-appointed law officer, chasing him with a firearm in his right hand.

The pistol in his right hand is what got Grosskreutz maimed.

In hindsight, he should have held a cell phone and dialed 911.  Rittenhouse wouldn't have blown his bicep up.

As Paul Harvey would say, "NOW...you know the rest of the story!"

Gaige Grosskreutz biography: 13 things about Kyle Rittenhouse’s victim from West Allis, Wisconsin

The 13 things:

Born in 1994, he is the son of Janice A. Grosskreutz.

Aside from West Allis, he has lived in different parts of Wisconsin including Hales Corners, La Crosse, Ashland and Milwaukee.

He has an older brother named Joshua Ian A. Grosskreutz and a sister named Rebecca A. Volkmann.

From 2009 to 2012, he attended West Allis Central High School. During his freshman year of high school, he went to his first protest in support of LGBTQ rights. His American Politics teacher excused him from class to go, USA Today has learned.

From 2013 to 2016, he attended Milwaukee Area Technical College at the Oak Creek, Wisconsin campus where he earned his emergency medical technician basic (EMT-B) certification.

In 2016, he was convicted of a criminal misdemeanor for going armed with a firearm while intoxicated.

He was part of a group of activists who have demonstrated around Milwaukee in the wake of George Floyd’s death, Milwaukee activist Bethany Crevensten told The Oklahoman.

From June-July 2020, he volunteered as a medic for the Black Lives Matter protests around Milwaukee.

A senior at Northland College in Ashland, he is currently studying outdoor education with an emphasis in program administration. He was expected to graduated in December 2020 but his education was put on hold after he was shot by Rittenhouse in Kenosha.

He was treated at two hospitals in Kenosha. Afterwards, Flight for Life airlifted him to Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee.

He is part of a team that uses camping, kayaking, skiing, swimming and other activities to help people overcome trauma or substance abuse. It is his goal to pursue a career in wilderness therapy. A keen kayaker, he often takes people out on boating trips.

He previously worked as a special events coordinator, wilderness medical instructor and sea kayak guide at Lost Creek Adventures, a full-service paddling outfitter in Cornucopia, Wisconsin that also offers courses in outdoor skills, wilderness survival and traditional crafts within the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in Bayfield, Wisconsin.

He has a forfeiture case for not showing obedience to officers and one for loud noises.

Notice how so many pieces refer to Grosskreutz as a "victim" or "survivor", even "lone survivor"?

He hasn't been charged and he won't be charged. For one thing,the gun has disappeared. One of his friends on the scene took it and disappeared with it.

GRAPHIC: A friend of the man who rushed at the #Kenosha teen with a pistol and was shot in the arm has posted an update about his status. Doctors were able to save Gaige Grosskreutz's right arm. The friend says Gaige regrets not being able to kill the teen.

Yep! I sure have. I also noticed when the incident went down that there were a bunch of people who, well, evaporated, tout suite! I bet they survived, along with the guy who took the pistol from Grosskreutz' hand and went elsewhere with it, likely to 'sanitize' the scene and make the attacker look like a victim.

So there was a whole town full of "survivors".

(Who knows how many police have been accused of a 'bad shoot" because someone in the crowd snagged the weapon that was the reason for using lethal force to make the "victim" appear to have been unarmed.)

Plenty of video clearly shows the weapon, or what credibly appears to be a weapon, enough so that it would warrant a lethal force response. If Scott Peterson can be convicted of murder without a body, he can sure be charged with assault with a deadly, especially in light of comments made since the event.

I think that was Drew Peterson.  They found Scott's wife in the SF Bay.
