Gaige Grosskreutz is suing Kyle Rittenhouse for shooting him during the 2020 Kenosha riots
· Feb 22, 2023 ·

Kyle Rittenhouse has already been found not guilty for the actions he was forced to take on the night of August 23, 2020. Gaige Grosskreutz admitted in court to chasing down Rittenhouse and pointing a gun at him before being shot in the arm.

But now, to the surprise of many, Grosskreutz is suing Rittenhouse for "damages for emotional distress, humiliation, loss of enjoyment of life, and other pain and suffering."

Also named as defendants in the case are "the city of Kenosha, Kenosha County, five other neighboring counties, police officers, former Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth and former Kenosha Police Chief Daniel Miskinis."

Here's some of what the lawsuit has to say:

"Astonishingly, the Kenosha Police Department, Kenosha County Sheriff's Department, their supervising officials and police officers, and law enforcement officers from surrounding communities did not treat Defendant Rittenhouse or any of the other armed individuals patrolling the streets as a threat to the safety of themselves or the citizens they were sworn to protect," the lawsuit, filed on February 14, states.

"Instead, the law enforcement 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,'" said the lawsuit, filed by Ascend Counsel attorneys Kimberley Motley of Motley Legal Services and E. Milo Schwab.

Interestingly enough, it looks like the narrative on policing is going to have to flip-flop here if we're going to cover this story in the mainstream media. Now, instead of bashing on cops for doing their jobs, we're going to bash on them for not doing their jobs. Should be fun.

A quick refresher on what happened that night in the summer of 2020:

Looks like the Huber family is going to file a lawsuit here as well.

Here's what Kyle Rittenhouse had to say concerning the Grosskreutz lawsuit:

Rittenhouse told Fox News that he was ready to "prove my innocence again," though that action would come with a high price tag, adding that the lawsuit came as "a little bit of a shock."

"I guess it came as a shock to why he's filing a lawsuit because he admitted that he pointed a gun in my face and that he chased me down," Rittenhouse added.

Yeah, I don't quite understand the logic here.

The lawsuit from Grosskreutz argues that he "approached with his hands in the air to try to ease the situation and stop the killing."

The lawsuit fails to mention that Grosskreutz had been chasing Rittenhouse before he approached him and then, for good measure, he pointed his pistol directly at Rittenhouse.

It was only then when he was shot in the bicep.

Also, I'll leave this right here:

I don't see this lawsuit going anywhere, but we shall see what happens.
