Kenosha Shooting Victims Seek Millions from City as Punishment For Being Shot While Attacking Rittenhouse
In what can only be called an outrage, one of the group of people, who charged a 17-year-old, beat him, shot at him, now are suing the police department, chief of police because they did not protect them while they were rioting, setting buildings and cars on fire, and was ultimately shot when they attacked this child.
Also named defendants are Kenosha, Kenosha County, the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department, Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth, Police Chief Daniel Miskinis, and employees of the city police department.
Basically, the plaintiffs claim that the police (whom they were reportedly protesting against as part of the left’s defund the police hysteria) failed to protect them from teen Kyle Rittenhouse.
I find this ironic, to say the least; these people were protesting to defund and abolish the police, now they are suing because they claim these same people did not properly protect them.
Attorneys for Rittenhouse have said he fired at protesters Gaige Grosskreutz, Joseph Rosenbaum, and Anthony Huber in self-defense during the chaotic night. Huber and Rosenbaum died of gunshot wounds.
In their claim notice, Huber’s family accused Kenosha law enforcement of allowing Rittenhouse, then 17, to “roam the streets, threatening numerous civilians and ultimately shooting three people.”
Yet this is not what happened; he was there after the riots the night before resulted in protestors burning car lots, destroying vehicles and buildings. He was there with others to protect property from looters and rioters.
When the rioters saw him that they rushed him, assaulted him; one of the people there shot at him; he responded by shooting back, as most people would do under such a circumstance. That is what self-defense is.
Grosskreutz and Huber’s family are each demanding $10 million.
In his document, Grosskreutz, 26, alleges that he has “suffered significant permanent physical damage, pain, and suffering, loss of income and future earnings” following the shooting.
Meanwhile, the document on behalf of Huber’s parents claims that their damages include “the loss of companionship of their son.”
In August, Rittenhouse was charged in the fatal shootings of Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, and in the wounding of Grosskreutz.
The charges included reckless and intentional homicide, endangerment and being a minor in possession of a firearm.
In November, Rittenhouse was freed from jail after posting a $2 million bond.
On Tuesday, he formally pled not guilty to seven charges, including five felony charges, the Milwaukee Sentinel Journal reported.
In November, conservative actor Ricky Schroder contributed his own money to help bail Kyle out of jail.
Schroder is a former child actor who starred on the 1980s sitcom “Silver Spoons” and more recently played a detective on the hit TV series “NYPD Blue.”
He believes there is no doubt that Rittenhouse is innocent.
“He wasn’t there to stop the protests,” Schroder told the New York Post in November. “He was there to defend property from chaos.”
“This boy is innocent and he will be proven innocent,” he continued. “This is a clear case of self-defense.”
