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 )


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."

Ohio SoS LaRose: "Election Nights Are Never Final"

I have to give him credit - he really has not supported trump in any way, and neither has DeWine (thank goodness!)

But Ohio's Republican Secretary of State Frank LaRose stressed that "election night results are never final" on the ABC News "Powerhouse Politics" podcast.

"This idea that election night is sort of this grand reality TV show where everybody gets to go to bed on election night knowing who won and who lost is just a flawed construct that's not the way it works," LaRose said during an interview Monday with podcast co-hosts ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl and Political Director Rick Klein.

Trump has repeatedly claimed that the winner of the election must be known on election night, saying during a rally in Iowa Sunday, "We should know the result of the election on November 3rd, the evening of November 3rd. That’s the way it's been and that's the way it should be."

That that!
