Officer Fired For Private Donation To Rittenhouse Defense Fund Wants Job Back After Not-guilty Verdict

Many people supported Kyle Rittenhouse from the very beginning, despite what the mainstream media said. Regular citizens even donated to his trial fund because they believed he deserved a fair trial with a good attorney.

Fired For Seperating A Cause

One of the people who donated to the fund was a Norfolk police officer. He says he was fired for his anonymous donation. Lt. William Kelly is now asking for his job back.

Rittenhouse was acquitted this past week, which means that any donation to his defense fund should be overlooked. But, for some reason, that is not the case for Kelly.

Kelly told the Daily Mail that he would like to go back to work. He said, "I love being a cop, it's a part of me and who I am. It was a huge hit to me to lose my job. If I got the chance again, I'd jump on it."

Kelly had given only $25 to the GoFundMe campaign for Rittenhouse. He left him a message saying, "God Bless. Thank you for your courage. Keep your head up. You've done nothing wrong. Every rank-and-file police officer supports you."

Even though Kelly made an anonymous donation, a data breach revealed his identity and showed that he worked for the Norfolk Police Department. The city caught wind of the donation and said his "egregious comments erode the trust" between officers and the area's citizens. Kelly filed a grievance and is looking forward to a hearing in January.

  1. Wrong , NO cop should be fired for this while his chief in full uniform supports BLM
    Bad optics Norfolk PD

    1. If GoFundMe can't keep it's donations anonymous when requested people aren't going to use it . They need to fix their security problem I'd think

      1. So this information was wrongfully obtained in violation of another constitutional right, the right to privacy. The cop should be interviewing top level constitutional lawyers to find out how many of his rights have been violated.

        1. You got that right.
          If they are going to violate our rites, then we need to sue the HELL out of anyone connected with those violations.

      1. Me too. Along with ANTIFA.
        Then we the law abiding citizens, could declare OPEN SEASON on them because they are TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS ... This should also include ANYONE WHO HELPS or SUPPORTS them.

    2. Sounds like the chief needs to be fired ! ugh police suporting CRIMINALS! who burn riot etc. and YES i'm sick and tired of all these LIES about white people. I'm not RACIST- I've seen some though BLM is at the front right there with that RAT LIAR Maxine Waters and the rest of the SCUM in the RAT party -LYING Hypocrits getting RICH promoting RACISM and criminal behavior>

  2. He should be reinstated with all back pay he should be awarded Damages, and a Public Apology given and the incident permanently removed from his zrecord

  3. NEVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN FIRED HOPE HE GETS HIS JOB BACK THANX FOR SUPPORTING KYLE WHOEVER FIRED HIM SHOULD BE FIRED AND SHAMED

  4. Can't have your own mind. I would never let someone tell me I can't do what I wsnt. That is so stupid.has to be DEMS. No way in hell!!!!

  5. "...the city caught wind of the donation.'' is bogus claim. HE WAS RATTED OUT BY "GoFundMe'' and/or its staff, MOST LIKELY, with some help from federal 'investigation' sources.

  6. Nothing unusual here my friends. Since the FRAUDULENT "election" that installed two "deep state" controllable chinese bought and owned "puppets", the "narrative" to push communism, and lawlessness continues. ALL must "fall in line" with THEIR "narrative", or be swept away until we no longer HAVE "law and order" (like the communists want)..Then the push will come for "martial law", and the implementation of the U.N "agenda 21" Look it up.... The "PURGE" is beginning. HEAVILY ARMED SWAT raids on innocent civilians for refusing to KOWTOW to the new communists "masters" is just the "start"...Time to wake up America. Before we no longer HAVE a country. FRAUDULENT "elections" have consequences, and what is happening now is the "tip of the iceberg" unless the PEOPLE WAKE UP, stand up, and REMOVE the communists, and their "handlers" from the "government".

  7. On the bright side, He'll have had a nice, fully paid vacation when he gets his job back with pay as surely he will. After you get your job back, find another Police department that has better pay and a better Administration. Good Luck!!

    1. Plus damages for being fired while his Chief supports BLM and probably Antifa . The Chief needs fired and pay all damages himself.

    1. Is the chief black???These libs are so bold they believe they are can control our lives. Rittenhouse case was open and shut.

  8. Sue the Chief, the Mayor, and the City Council personally for wrongful termination. Do not sue the city just the People because that gets the real guilty parties and not fellow taxpayers. Ask for $10 Trillion per person plus all Court Costs and Legal fees. Settle for the following 1) All those sued be removed from their job. 2) Bar them from any money they would get as a retirement from those jobs. 3) Ban them from any future Jobs at any level paid for by tax dollars This prevents them from getting another Governor job by it elected or appointed. 4) Strip them of everything their job has gotten them. Sell it and give that money to the officer. 5) Make them pay the lawyers over time at a high rate of interest so they can never sue anyone themselves . The $10 Trillion would keep them from finding a lawyer to represent them and the other will keep them from ever getting another Government Job be it Elected or Appointed.

  9. DATA BREACH MY ASS...
    "The city caught wind of the donation". "Yeah right"
    It seems mighty CONVENIENT, that every time the DemocRATS want some kind of info on someone or some organization there is instantly "a data breach" of some kind or other.
    I think that officer Kelly should SUE GoFundMe & the Norfolk Police Department, to the tune of about
    $25,000,000 if not more. I wonder what else GoFundMe "accidently on purpose" revealed to the powers that be, with their so-called data breach ?

    1. Officer Kelly. I am in Florida and would welcome your service and dedication. Come on down. Plus I think that there is a sign on bonus for new displaced law enforcement personnel.

  10. I wonder how much the cop will recover for this violation of his First Amendment right to freedom of association and all of the other rights that they violated. Let's see. there's back pay, attorneys fees, damages for violating his constitutional rights, etc. etc. It should be a tidy sum.

  11. AMERICA DEMANDS TO KNOW WHAT FELON FIRED HIM. NAME THE SCUM BAG, OR BAGS. THEY NEED A BLM TYPE NOT SO PEACEFUL PROTEST AT THEIR VILE HOME. BE SHAME IF THEIR POWER AND WATER GO OUT. TOUGH TO PUT OUT A FIRE IF YOU HAVE NO WATER. WE NEED TO START TAKING THESE MATTERS AND TEACHING THE ENEMIES A VERY PAINFUL LASTING LESSON. MAKE THESE MAGGOTS FEAR GOING PUT IN PUBLIC. LET THEM KNOW YOU’D RUN THEM RIGHT OVER IF GIVEN OPPORTUNITY.

  12. WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!!! His privacy was violated. Any action based on that can be contested. And the fact that a person of the law acted on it is even worse. I think he should get his job back along with compensation and the ones involved in firing him should lose their jobs along with their pensions!!

  13. The law enforcement agencies (LEAs), governmental agencies, military departments, the legal system, corporations, and educational organizations should all be apolitical. Politics seem to ruin everything in society. Leave your personal politics at the front door and start acting as honest, unbiased, objective, and unprejudiced employees, managers, and executives.

  14. Then Kamala Harris Needs to be Impeach for Supporting BLM & Antifa Bailing them out of Jail for Rioting.
    Or not b/c she is a Democrat? But thats OK? "Do As I Say Not What I do?????????????"

    Was this also Racist, isn't that the Go Too Statement Nowadays?

    I Hope People in our Country Wake Up in 2022 & 2024 before there is No return from Communism.

  15. With all the crime the last thing we need is a policeman being fired for donating to a worthy cause. It was clear to most people that this was self-defense. Videos clearly show this young man was not pursuing anyone but being pursued! I applaud this officer and hope he does sue every single person/organization that slandered and defamed him... maybe then there will be more honest "reporting"!

  16. It sounds like the Norfolk Police Department head honcho(s) should be in another country where his/her socialism/communism attitude is accepted. The leak from gofundme cannot be tolerated and could be deliberate!!
