Throughout the summer, conservative journalists have been on the ground across the country covering riots. Townhall's Julio Rosas, Blaze TV's Elijah Schaffer and The Daily Caller's Richie McGinniss and Shelby Talcott have covered the nightly chaos in Minneapolis, Portland, Atlanta and now in Kenosha, Wisconsin. They've gone where the mainstream media is afraid to go. They're reporting what's actually happening, not giving the "peaceful protest" line that the MSM is running with.
McGinniss went above and beyond the call of duty in the early hours Wednesday morning when he literally used the shirt off his back to help save a man that was shot in the head.

BREAKING they shot someone in the head at the #KENOSHA riot RIGHT NOW— ELIJAH RIOT (@ElijahSchaffer) August 26, 2020
I repeat someone has been shot in what appears to be the head while looting a car shop
I can not confirm the exact wound location but he’s white and losing a lot of blood
I will update who shot him! pic.twitter.com/xZ6v5mpI82
According to The Daily Caller, McGinniss carried the man to the hospital to seek medical attention.
Schaffer heard from multiple witnesses that the gunshot victim was a rioter attempting to loot the building that was being patrolled by the Boogaloos, a far-right extremist movement. One of the Boogaloos members allegedly shot the looter in the head.

A second witness told me the same account off camera
That is what I thought I saw too but I had to confirm. Details can still change pic.twitter.com/3CnPtODX5o
According to Rosas and Talcott, a second shooting broke out immediately following:
??????: Multiple gunshots are fired after people chased a guy with a rifle. Rifle dude tripped and fell. He fired his gun at a guy who jumped on top of him. pic.twitter.com/BfV244MMnc— Julio Rosas (@Julio_Rosas11) August 26, 2020
Julio got footage of the second shooting.— Shelby Talcott (@ShelbyTalcott) August 26, 2020
It looks like the guy accused of shooting the first victim possibly shot the second victim. Not confirmed. This is insane. https://t.co/DoC6KowAXC
Regardless of what transpired or why, there's one thing that is certain: Richie McGinniss deserves major, major credit for jumping into action to help someone who was injured. Not many people would be brave enough to jump into action like that, especially when they're there solely to observe and report what's happening on the ground.
