Family of Anthony Huber, killed by Kyle Rittenhouse, files suit against city of Kenosha

The family of Anthony Huber, who was fatally shot by Kyle Rittenhouse during riots in Kenosha, Wis., last summer, filed suit in Milwaukee on Tuesday, alleging that the city of Kenosha and its police and county sheriff’s departments openly conspired with White militia members, which gave them “license … to wreak havoc and inflict injury.”

In the first major federal lawsuit against the city, police and county resulting from the riots in August last year, attorneys say that Rittenhouse and other gunmen were given preferential treatment because of their race. If Rittenhouse were Black, the complaint reads, the “defendants would have acted much differently.”

The courts really are the last resort when it comes to guns, gun violence and the abuses of 'second amendment rights'.

1. Good. I have been waiting for this. What has left the greatest impression on this event is how

no one has remembered or discussed the victims of this. Those hearing gun and he shot someone, and trying to stop more deaths. Dying themselves. It has made me sick.

2. I grew up in southern Wisconsin

Even when I was young in the 50s and 60s it was pretty well known that Kenosha was a corrupt and racist city.

3. Good.

You could not come up with two more perfect examples of institutional white privilege than Rittenhouse & January 6, 2021.
