Norfolk fires police lieutenant who donated to accused vigilante Kyle Rittenhouse

The donation reportedly came with a comment that read: “God bless. Thank you for your courage. Keep your head up. You’ve done nothing wrong.”

Insanity.

A police officer in Virginia was fired after donating to a legal defense fund for Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse, officials said Tuesday.

Norfolk Police Lt. William Kelly anonymously gave $25 to a fundraiser for Rittenhouse in September, using his city email address, according to The Guardian.

The donation reportedly came with a comment that read: “God bless. Thank you for your courage. Keep your head up. You’ve done nothing wrong.”

“Every rank and file police officer supports you,” the message continued. “Don’t be discouraged by actions of the political class of law enforcement leadership.”

Norfolk City Manager Chip Filer on Tuesday said he’d reviewed an internal investigation of the incident and determined that Kelly violated city and departmental policies, local outlet WAVY-TV reported.

“His egregious comments erode the trust between the Norfolk Police Department and those they are sworn to serve,” Filer said in a statement Tuesday.
