Family of protester fatally shot by Kyle Rittenhouse files federal lawsuit

My pologies if this has already been posted, but I was glad to see it. I found way down the list of the yahoo story about the woman sentenced to prison for shooting and killing a burglar (thank you Ansible for posting that )

https://news.yahoo.com/family-protester-fatally-shot-kyle-185548470.html

Not sure how much I'm allowed to post of it, I don't usually start threads...

Get. Them.

The family of Anthony Huber, one of the men Kyle Rittenhouse is accused of fatally shooting during protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year, filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday claiming police failed to intervene and conspired with white militia members.

Why it matters: The lawsuit filed by Huber's parents is the first major suit against the city, police and county following the protests last August sparked by the police shooting of Jacob Blake.

Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time, was allegedly part of an armed group who said they were protecting private property from violent protesters. Rittenhouse maintains he fired in self-defense. Prosecutors have charged him on six counts.

The big picture: The federal lawsuit seeks unspecified damages against Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth; Daniel Miskinis, the former City of Kenosha police chief; Eric Larsen, the city's acting police chief; and unnamed officers and deputies.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants "deputized these armed individuals, conspired with them, and ratified their actions by letting them patrol the streets armed with deadly weapons to mete out justice as they saw fit. "

The lawsuit also alleges that the officers' decision to treat demonstrators and militia members differently was motivated by racial discrimination.

"Defendants did nothing to stop Rittenhouse's illegal conduct," the lawsuit states. "They did not arrest him for illegally carrying a gun. They did not disarm him. They did not limit his movement in any way. They did not question him. They did not stop him from shooting individuals after he started. They did not arrest him, detain him, or question him even after he had killed two people."

2. I was wondering what happened to that little creep and what the outcome of his case was. Hasn't

been to court yet I guess. Hope he doesn't get a slap on the wrist but won't hold my breath.

15. When I saw how brave Jacob Huber was . . .

. . . how he tried to use his skateboard as a weapon to stop an asshole firing an assault rifle, I vowed never to make fun of skateboard dudes again. I hope his family is victorious.

23. Anthony Huber.

Joe Rosenbaum, Gaige Grosskreutz were the other victims. Rosenbaum got killed.

Jacob Blake was the kid whose shooting by the Kenosha Po sparked the Kenosha protests.

21. I got spam from his mama trying to raise money

Lately my spam folder has been bombarded by right wing politics groups and creatures, like it was before the election. I don't know how they got my email. I unsubscribed and they stopped for a while but when I looked at my spam folder recently before deleting, I noticed an email from Kyle's mama, subject was raising money to defend her son the patriot. I deleted it.
