The BLM protester, shot by Kyle Rittenhouse, initiates lawsuit

| October 16, 2021

Gaige Grosskreutz, one of the BLM protesters that Kyle Rittenhouse shot, is suing Kenosha, Wisconsin, and its leaders. The lawsuit claims that the police officers conspired with “vigilantes”. His complaint references a statement from Kenosha police showing appreciation to a group of armed individuals who were protecting businesses.

From Fox News:

Now, Grosskreutz is suing the city of Kenosha, Kenosha County, Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth, retired Kenosha Police Chief Daniel Miskinis and interim Chief of Police for the Kenosha Police Department Eric Larsen, as well as other Kenosha officers, according to the complaint filed in a Wisconsin federal court.

Defendants did nothing to stop Rittenhouse’s illegal conduct. They did not arrest him for illegally carrying a gun. They did not disarm him,” the lawsuit reads. “…Instead, Defendants deputized Rittenhouse and other armed individuals, conspired with them, and ratified their actions by allowing them to patrol the streets with deadly weapons and shoot and kill innocent victims.

The Kenosha County Sheriff’s Office and Kenoshoa Police Department did not immediately respond to inquiries from Fox News.

Grosskreutz was one of three victims Rittenhouse shot on Aug. 25. The other two victims, Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, died of their injuries.

    I really like how this article refers to this guy, the dead pedo, and the other dumbass as “victims”.

    • Andy says:

      Especially since the cops did nothing to disarm him for illegally carry as well.

      • 5JC says:

        Since Wisconsin is an open carry state not sure how carrying a gun is “illegal”. I imagine the police knew the law better than dumbasses lawyer.

    This one needs to be euthanized.

    Young Kyle made an excellent shot on the freak and should be awarded a community service award for his efforts.

    • Amateur Historian says:

      From my viewpoint from the video of him trying to run away from rioters who were pursuing him (with obvious intent to cause grievous bodily harm), he made every effort to get away from danger and only opened fire when he was cornered with no escape or was otherwise immobilized (ie being hit in the back with a skateboard and being force off his feet).

      The dead scumbags is also a definite bonus.

  3. Anonymous says:

    Aw, does poor widdle baby have butthurt?

  4. Hack Stone says:

    Pretty sure the only people shot that evening were three idiots involved in this event. They hardly qualify as “innocent”.

    And before someone on the left comes here to say that Kyle Rittenhouse had no business being there, would that apply to the mostly peaceful protesters also. Because if they were not there that evening, they would not have been shot.

    At least the 8 year old boys of that city no longer have to worry about being raped by a convicted child rapist.

  5. AW1Ed says:

    All it takes is a lawer (sic) and a filing fee to initiate a law suit. How dare the local LEOs fail to condone Mr. Grosskreutz’s rights to burn, loot and riot.

    • rgr769 says:

      Lawsuit is one word. Wish I had a dollar for every time I had to correct supposed legal secretaries on this point during the forty years I worked on people’s lawsuits. But I respect your sarcasm, despite not having a legal style manual or a Black’s Law Dictionary.

      Oh, all he wants is oxygen? I’d be happy to oblige (with an o2 tank pointed in his general direction shortly before I hit it with a hammer 🙂).

    Anyone else notice?

    No one, including the network (CNN)
    that pumped up a Kenosha CPR princess
    and put her on a pedestal last year,
    will mention the name Carol Ann Badoni.

    I’m sure, when they did their homework for this new lawsuit story,
    they came upon the “Fake Twice Wounded” MP and VG articles,
    and promptly crossed Badoni’s name off the list for “contact for quotes.”

    BTW, “What ever happened to”…. Carol Ann Badoni?

        Badoni ended up on the same scrapheap as Cindy Sheehan and Michael Avenatti – once the left is done with them and their true colors start to come through they are an embarrassment and don’t get any further mention.

          Lest we also not forget David Hogg.

          They will all get a mention in some “Where Are They Now/” piece and Hogg will get some brief mention of a failed pillow effort as he tried to best the My Pillow guy and failed.

  8. KoB says:

    Not surprised to see this lawsuit. Won’t be surprised if the dirtbag gets a jury to give him some ill gotten money. After all, an abusive junkie’s family got $27 million for the stupid sh^t the junkie did. What’s a few more millions just so they can stick it to “the man”?

    Too bad Kyle didn’t get him a trifecta of DRTs.

    • rgr769 says:

      Unless the defense lawers for Kenosha and its PD are incredibly stupid and/or incompetent, this BLM rioter’s lawsuit should go nowhere. Generally, there is governmental immunity in every state for an official or peace officer’s discretionary decisions about enforcing the law. Moreover, this turd and his shysters are trying to hold the city vicariously liable for Rittenhouse’s acts when he was not their employee or agent. The fact that some cop at some time said he appreciated armed people trying to protect businesses from the rioting arsonists is of no legal significance. Somehow, I doubt the PD issued him a badge and deputized him. That allegation is just a lie to avoid having the case dismissed on a motion to dismiss for failure to state a viable claim.

      For example, if one is burgled and the police had the opportunity to arrest the burglar for driving without a license, but didn’t before he got to your house, your lawsuit against the cops would be dismissed long before any trial was scheduled.

      I also should add that the fact Rittenhouse was carrying a rifle is also irrelevant, since there is no way this moron can prove the cops knew Rittenhouse wasn’t allowed to handle a rifle under Wisconsin law. Moreover, his clown was carrying himself and was trying to shoot Rittenhouse when he was shot.

      (Note: I don’t purport to know Wisconsin law, but this type of tort liability law is pretty uniform in every state. His lawers are likely looking for publicity more than money.)

      • KoB says:

        Roger all that rgr769. I’m not a lawer, but I do watch a few on TV. I agree with your legal points for sure. My thing, as we all well know, is no one ever knows what a jury may do. The judge should just throw the whole damn case out as “frivolous” and slap a fine on the lawers that brought the case. Again, we don’t know all of the particulars of WI law. Ought to get interesting before it’s over.

        • Commissar says:

          This is not frivolous, and while aspects of it may be tossed, there is no way in hell the case didn’t have sufficient merit to be filed.

          • Animal says:

            Everybody there went looking for trouble and they found it. It’s just a shame taxpayers have to fund the legal proceedings that are a result.

          • rgr769 says:

            Wow, the commie cuttlefish has just rendered one of his astute legal opinions based upon all those years of lawering.

      • USMC Steve says:

        Relative to that, why was Grosskreutz not arrested for attempted murder? He aggressively advanced on Rittenhouse while he was on the ground defending himself, drew a weapon, and tried to kill him, but the kid was faster and got him first. Statements from scumbag after the fact clearly indicated he had the intent to kill Rittenhouse. As scumbag was in no danger, and advanced to put himself in potential danger, with criminal intent to kill Rittenhouse, at least in Missouri, that is attempted murder, and certainly assault with a deadly weapon.

    Didn’t the video show this idiot pulling a Glock on Kyle Rittenhouse, before he shot his little terrorist ass? Why isn’t this dumbass in jail facing charges?

  12. Stacy0311 says:

    So the Second place finisher in the Kenosha Quick Draw competition thinks he deserves some money.

    Why isn’t said silver medalist not currently in jail/prison? I’m pretty sure it’s a federal crime for an individual convicted of domestic violence to possess a firearm?

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      Yeah, funny how the liberal media ignores that when they’re looking for their latest propaganda piece, the goblin shot was IN VIOLATION OF one of the Gun Control laws hyped by the left!

  13. gitarcarver says:

    The 1989 case of DeShaney v. Winnebago Cty decided by the Supreme Court held:

    (a) A State’s failure to protect an individual against private violence generally does not constitute a violation of the Due Process Clause, because the Clause imposes no duty on the State to provide members of the general public with adequate protective services. The Clause is phrased as a limitation on the State’s power to act, not as a guarantee of certain minimal levels of safety and security; while it forbids the State itself to deprive individuals of life, liberty, and property without due process of law, its language cannot fairly be read to impose an affirmative obligation on the State to ensure that those interests do not come to harm through other means. Pp. 489 U. S. 194-197.

    (b) There is no merit to petitioner’s contention that the State’s knowledge of his danger and expressions of willingness to protect him against that danger established a “special relationship” giving rise to an affirmative constitutional duty to protect.

    https://supreme.justia.com/cases/federal/us/489/189/#tab-opinion-1957769

    The SCOTUS followed this up in 2005 with the case of CASTLE ROCK v. GONZALES where a woman called the police after her estranged husband took their three kids in violation of a restraining order and later murdered them. The husband then went to the police station and engaged the police in a gun battle in which he was shot and killed.

    The wife sued and lost. Once again the Court ruled that even a restraining order does not obligate the police to enforce that order. (This is one of those cases with the worst set of underlying facts. The case itself is horrific.)

    https://www.law.cornell.edu/supremecourt/text/04-278

    Bottom line is that the law of the land is clear – the police have no duty or obligation to protect.

    • USMC Steve says:

      That kind of ruling goes back even further, a case where two DC women were attacked, raped, beaten etc in their apartment and the DC popo failed miserably from start to finish in their efforts.

  14. rgr769 says:

    Not only is there no duty owed to individual citizens to enforce laws, but there are several statutory immunities in most states for law enforcement activities. These apply to the actions of officers, as well as to liability for the criminal acts of third parties. Ultimately, this douche canoe will lose,—- if we still have rule of law.

  15. Commissar says:

    Kyle is a murderer and a psychopathic little shitbird.

    The fact that so many on the right hero worship this creepy little twit is pretty beta behavior.

    However, the lawsuit has an uphill battle because the Supreme Court and lower courts have ruled consistently that cops are under no obligation to do their jobs and are not responsible for criminal behavior they failed to intercede in or stop.

    Though these agencies may settle to avoid discovery since text messages between officers tend to be pretty damning. The individual officers will likely get qualified immunity as well, unless they demonstrated extreme negligence.

    However, if Rittenhouse was indeed deputized, even verbally, even satirically, and they can prove it…then the agency and municipality involved is going to pay out huge.

    • gitarcarver says:

      The fact that so many on the right hero worship this creepy little twit is pretty beta behavior.

      The fact that so many on the left – including you – tried to justify the destruction of property and worship those who destroyed the property, broke laws and injured so many people, indicates that your calling someone else a “psychopathic little shitbird,” and a “creepy little twit” may be projection on your part.

      Welcome /s/ back, spapos.

    • Av8or33 says:

      Really, being chased by a mob, beaten with a skateboard having a gun pointed at him before shooting is murder? Sorry that’s insane, bad judgment being there in the first place putting himself in that situation was probably not too bright but he was attacked by scumbags and defended himself. The lefts summer of insurrection killed and injured many innocent people and caused billions in property damage, where is your outrage over that? I’m very thankful that I never ended up in the wrong place at the wrong time or that my property wasn’t destroyed and I’m thankful that I wasn’t put in the position to defend myself or others from the savages that the media called protesters and now victims. Please stop saying things that are ridiculous. I’m surprised more of these leftists rioters didn’t get killed. As far as law enforcement not doing their jobs you’re right they should have been allowed to disperse and arrest these insurrectionists and then prosecute them to fullest extent of the law.

        Spare yourself. Lars will never criticize what Antifa, BLM or the left in general does. Only those on the right.

        After all, he went out of his way to patch their boo boos up as a medic. I’m sure that under the bandaids his medical grab bag also contained a chain and bike lock…

Arguing with him is like washing a pig – you get wet and dirty, the pig gets angry, and nothing has been accomplished. Additionally as it typical of a libtard, his grasp of reality is very dodgy.

Do us a favor and STAY IN California, mmmmmmmkay? “Stand your ground” Laws do indeed help those being assaulted and let’s not forget that Kyle Rittenhouse WAS indeed being done so, he fired in self defense against the goblin WHO WAS NOT allowed by law to own or possess a firearm or ammunition.

      You lose once again, Major Moonbat.

    • SFC D says:

      Rittenhouse did everything he possibly could to disengage and escape prior to pulling the trigger. He was defending himself from those intent on his murder. And you remain, now and forever, a fraud.

        Let’s not forget that Major Moonbat is part of the crowd that always screeches for more Gun Laws so more people are helpless against the leftist mobs who want to hurt and terrorize all who dissent with them just like the mobs in Nazi Germany.

    • Berliner says:

      Commissar/Комиссар/政委 You may have watched all the videos with those rainbow colored glasses and leftist blinders on to form your opinion. I previously served on jury duty where an unsuspecting individual was killed by a longboard to the head from behind, all recorded on video.

      Not hero worship – what I saw was clearly self defense by Kyle, who was being pursued by armed individuals intent on harm/murder.

    • Hack Stone says:

      Commissar, Hack Stone haas never directed any type of insult directly at you, nor has he ever endorsed you being banned from this page, but could you please provide some context in referring to Kyle Rittenhouse as a murderer ( a legal decision based on the results of a trial) and a psychopathic little shitbird? If indeed he was psychopathic little shorebird, why did he not randomly shoot the protesters? It seems the only people he shot were those who posed an imminent threat to him. He did not shoot the individual who withdrew after Rittenhouse pointed the rifle at him.

      The fact that so many on the left hero worship the convicted child rapist is pretty beta behavior.

      • Deckie says:

        A-fucking-men.

      • USMC Steve says:

        In the legal sense, any time someone kills someone else, it is defined as homicide. Then it gets broken down by different types of homicide, such as justifiable homicide. Much as I hate it old dumbass up there is sort of correct, in the technical sense, but that is not the way he means it of course.

        • Hack Stone says:

          No dispute that Kyle Rittenhouse killed two individuals. Homicide is defined as death caused by another. Murder, on the other hand, is a legal conclusion that the death caused by the individual charged was not justified. And of course, as we all know, there degrees of murder.

    • Hack Stone says:

      Commissar, since you have offered your scholarly opinion on this mostly peaceful protest shooting, have you ever posted a comment on whether the vehicle driver in San Antonio who shot Garrett “They all are a bunch of pussies” Foster? If you have, Hack apologizes, but he does not recall you offering your legal expertise on that particular matter. Enquiring minds want to know. Sure as hell sounded like Garret Foster was psychopathic little shitbird looking to intimidate some innocent citizens who just wanted to live their lives.

      • Deckie says:

        He opines attempting to pass himself off as someone with training/expertise in many subjects, especially law. I’m not really sure what he studies at UCB as he seems happy to talk the school up as something great but reluctant to offer any insight as to his actual course of study there.

        Probably runs coffee to his communist professors and identifies potential conservatives for failing grades.

    • Skivvy Stacker says:

      I have to correct you on this, because it isn’t a fair interpretation.
      “… the Supreme Court and lower courts have ruled consistently that cops are under no obligation to do their jobs…”

      That is NOT what the courts have held.
      They have held that police officers, and police departments are not responsible are not under any obligation to provide protection for INDIVIDUAL citizens. Their primary function is the safety of the entire community, and as such they are limited in their ability to provide protection to each individual citizen. It is up to the citizen to take responsibility for their own safety to a reasonable degree.

    Wake me when this clown of an individual is facing a felony or 3. If you surround yourself with people without civility and base principles, I’m not saying you’re cut of the same cloth but covered by the resultant fecal-laced blanket.

    Here is a man who knows his stuff.
    I have tried explaining this concept to a number of people who don’t quite get what is meant by the justified use of deadly force.
    When deadly for is used, and a person dies, there has been a murder committed. That is how the law reads.
    It is not up to the police, or the shooter, or the victim’s family to say; “that was justified”.
    The circumstances had to be that the shooter was facing an immediate and unavoidable threat of death or great bodily harm. Absent any one of those, and you have a full blown murder.
    But when the use of deadly force is justified, it is stated as being a Justifiable HOMICIDE; not a Justified KILLING. Because under the law it is still a murder, because it involves the death of a human being at the hands of another human being.
    And I wish more people would understand this before going off about how they would “blow anyone away who was trying to steal my car stereo”.
