Kyle Rittenhouse’s Antifa-Linked Assailant Sues for Getting Shot

'They'll go after you if they can go after me... '

(Adrienne Ferguson, Headline USA) An Antifa-linked protestor who was shot during the mayhem, looting and vandalism that erupted during 2020 in Kenosha, Wisconsin, has filed a lawsuit against Kyle Rittenhouse, an Illinois resident who in self-defense shot three people, killing two, during the violent riots.

A lawsuit was submitted earlier this month in the U.S. District Court for the District of Eastern Wisconsin by Gaige Grosskreutz, one of the individuals Rittenhouse shot. Rittenhouse was found not guilty of all charges that were filed.

Rittenhouse, former Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth, and former Kenosha Police Chief Daniel Miskinis are named as defendants in the lawsuit acquired by CBS 58, according to Grosskreutz. The county and city of Kenosha, as well as other counties and municipalities that sent personnel to Kenosha during the violence that followed riots after Jacob Blake, a black man, was shot by a white Kenosha police officer, leaving him paralyzed from the waist down, are also named as defendants.

In November 2021, Rittenhouse was found not guilty of all counts related to the shootings that claimed the lives of Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum and injured Grosskreutz.
“[Gaige Grosskreutz] must live with the physical and emotional wounds inflicted by Defendant Rittenhouse and the Defendants who deputized and enabled him,” the lawsuit noted.

According to the lawsuit, law enforcement failed to take action when the wrongful acts occurred and could have been stopped with reasonable care but they “neglected to prevent or aid in preventing these wrongful acts.”

The complaint asks for financial compensation for “emotional distress, humiliation, loss of enjoyment of life, and other pain and suffering” in the form of economic damages.

In reaction to the lawsuit, Rittenhouse tweeted, “This lawsuit is an effort to drown anyone who legally and justifiably defends there [sic] lives from attackers in a mountain of legal debt. We cannot allow them to triumph. They’ll go after you if they can go after me.”

The family of Anthony Huber, who was one of the individuals killed in self-defense by Rittenhouse, has filed another lawsuit against Rittenhouse.

A federal court decided earlier this month that the civil rights case against Rittenhouse, the city of Kenosha, and Kenosha police officers could proceed.
