Police Officer Gets Last Laugh After Being Fired for Donating to Kyle Rittenhouse Legal Fund
Last summer during the riots in Kenosha, WI, one young man, Kyle Rittenhouse nearly died and had to fight for his life.
What resulted was Rittenhouse shooting three people, killing two of them. Now he is being charged with murder. If you can’t defend your own life with lethal force, then when would it ever be justified?
Anyway, a police officer in Virginia had donated a small sum of money to Rittenhouse’s defense fund. As a result, he was doxxed after the fundraising website was hacked and his personal address was revealed. He was also fired from the police department.
Seeing the unfairness of Kelly’s termination, GiveSendGo has stepped in and created a campaign to support Kelly while he fights his likely illegal firing. The site is demanding that Kelly’s free speech rights be protected.
“A lot of it is just trying to wrap our brains around the state of where things are at. What’s happening in our world that someone can give a $25 donation and lose their job for supporting someone?” GiveSendGo cofounder Heather Wilson told The Daily Wire.
“Kamala Harris promoted giving to bail people who were arrested for rioting, so why wouldn’t that same freedom be afforded to someone else? We’re going to allow and promote it on this side, but prevent it on the other?”
“Even his comments, which are being used against him, his comment was we stand behind you, it was just a positive message. It wasn’t against someone else,” she said.
Her brother, cofounder Jacob Wells, said, “This criminal act of hacking and releasing information, we believe just as we did in allowing Kyle Rittenhouse’s campaign to be an active campaign, that Kelly has the right to have a campaign just like anyone else — to not restrict people from giving to individuals who people want to support.”
Kelly’s firing is also especially enraging in the face of vice-president Kamala Harris promoting giving bail money to rioters arrested in cities across the country last year.
As of the time of this writing, the GiveSendGo fundraiser has raised over $52,000 to help fight this illegal firing. At the same time, he’s safer now that he doesn’t have to be on the street fighting crime.
