Gaige Grosskreutz, one of the men shot by Kyle Rittenhouse, filed a lawsuit earlier this month in the U.S. District Court for the District of Eastern Wisconsin. Not only does Grosskreutz name Rittenhouse in the suit, he also seeks damages against “the city and county of Kenosha as well as other counties and municipalities who sent personnel to Kenosha during the violence which followed protests after Rusten Sheskey, a white Kenosha police officer, shot Jacob Blake, a Black man, leaving him paralyzed from the waist down.”
The suit claims law enforcement “neglected to prevent or aid in preventing these wrongful acts where the wrongful acts were committed and could have been prevented by reasonable diligence.”
“[Gaige Grosskreutz] must live with the physical and emotional wounds inflicted by Defendant Rittenhouse and the Defendants who deputized and enabled him,” the lawsuit reads.
A jury acquitted Rittenhouse of all charges for the shootings, which left Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum dead, along with wounding Grosskreutz. But that has not spared Rittenhouse from his victims families seeking damages in civil court.
Earlier this month, a “federal judge in Wisconsin ruled that a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the father” of Anthony Huber who “was shot and killed by Kyle Rittenhouse during a protest in 2020 can proceed against Rittenhouse, police officers and others.”
Now, Crying Kyle is out begging (grifting) for some funds to help cover his mounting legal fees.
