Lieutenant William Kelly, the Norfolk Police Department officer who was fired for donating to the defense fund of Kyle Rittenhouse, is looking to get his job back by any means necessary following the “Not Guilty” verdict for Rittenhouse.
In April, Kelly donated a modest $25 to the Kyle Rittenhouse defense fund, something that many Americans would consider innocuous.
But apparently, the Norfolk Police Department didn’t agree as they quickly fired the 19-year police veteran and father of three.
Kelly explained after his firing that, “Everything I’m saying is just my personal opinion. I’ve been a homicide detective, a violent crimes investigator for years. I have a background. I watched the video of the shooting. I’d seen the video of the journalists of Mr. Rittenhouse before the shooting and the protesters before the shooting and I thought it painted a pretty clear picture that Mr. Rittenhouse had a very strong claim for self-defense.”
Kelly has a strong case against the Norfolk Police Department and very well may be able to take his situation to court.
Kelly is yet another reasonable American that has found himself canceled for holding the wrong opinions. Hopefully, he will be able to get his job back alongside a hefty amount of compensation.
