A Norfolk, VA, police officer who had donated $25 to Kyle Rittenhouse’s defense was fired by his department for doing so.

Then the Christian-oriented donations website GiveSendGo was hacked, with the officer’s address doxed by several far-left media sites, including The Guardian, a British newspaper.

Rittenhouse is widely known for his self-defense acts during 2020’s Kenosha, WI, riot in which he was forced to shoot several rioters with his AR15-style rifle, killing two and wounding another after they tried to attack him.

After the Norfolk police officer, William Kelly, saw his small donation to Rittenhouse revealed, he was quickly fired by his department in a move covered by the Washington Post and the New York Times.

Seeing the unfairness of Kelly’s termination, GiveSendGo has stepped in and created a campaign to support Kelly while he fights his likely-illegal firing. The site is demanding that Kelly’s free speech rights be protected.

“A lot of it is just trying to wrap our brains around the state of where things are at. What’s happening in our world that someone can give a $25 donation and lose their job for supporting someone?” GiveSendGo cofounder Heather Wilson told The Daily Wire.

“Kamala Harris promoted giving to bail people who were arrested for rioting, so why wouldn’t that same freedom be afforded to someone else? We’re going to allow and promote it on this side, but prevent it on the other?”

“Even his comments, which are being used against him, his comment was we stand behind you, it was just a positive message. It wasn’t against someone else,” she said.

Her brother, cofounder Jacob Wells, said, “This criminal act of hacking and releasing information, we believe just as we did in allowing Kyle Rittenhouse’s campaign to be an active campaign, that Kelly has the right to have a campaign just like anyone else — to not restrict people from giving to individuals who people want to support.”

Kelly’s firing is also especially enraging in the face of vice-president Kamala Harris promoting giving bail money to rioters arrested in cities across the country last year.

To date, Kelly has raised over $93,000 from the GiveSendGo fundraiser and is safe from criminal thugs on the streets.

  • This story won’t end well until the people who fired the officer are held to account. Both civilly and criminally. They should be fired and fined commensurately to their transgression.

    • With any luck the Department that fired him will be held accountable and he will get a tidy sum for damages. Maybe enough to retire for life.

      • If he does sue and get a reward the money should come from the individuals that caused him to be fired not the taxpayers, even if the perpetrators have to empty their savings and sell all their assets to cover the suit, then they should be jailed for at least 10 years without parole.

      • I’m making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life.

  • I think that Harris should be arrested for supporting a domestic terrorist group that has been running around this country burning dow buildings businesses and diliberally hurting police and other citizens.

      Now the fact is Harris assisted BLM persons who according to all law enforcement both State and Federal were not the ones doing the damage during the BLM protests, “Barr said at a press briefing that “three different sets of actors” are involved in the demonstrations — namely peaceful protesters, looters and “extremist agitators that hijack protests” to pursue various agendas.” now it was White Supremists who are the major ones arrested for Murder, bringing guns and explosive across state line to start riots and setting fires to buildings, the number 1 group is Boogaloo Boys.
      You do not have to believe me look it up your self.

      • I get paid over $87 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I’d be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless.

        Here’s what I’ve been doing….. http://www.Paybuzz1.com

  • We have a right to associate or not associate with anyone, unless you’re on parole and must not associate with known criminals, thus breaking parole. This officer has been denied that right through the intimidation or punishment of losing his livelihood. It’d be interesting to see what kind of criminal charges may be brought against him made up from whole cloth or what violation of his civil rights he may bring to them. Either way, this officer has a chance to strip the power away from the Marxists who control this police force. I hope every tyrant who had a hand in doing this, loses their position and is barred from any position of public trust in the future.

    • Timothy Yorgan
      Now not true with persons in law enforcement, you actually sign a statement saying you will not in any way be involved with anyone charged with a crime or under investigation for a crime unless in the capacity of your law enforcement duties.

  • This is no different from any police department when you are forbidden to assist or conspire with anyone charged with a crime except as your official duties as a police officer.

    • What happened to innocent until proven guilty? Do you know how many people who are charged eventually have the charges dropped? Or receive probation or suspended sentences or community service? Being charged with a crime really doesn’t mean that much.

  • What are they going to do when the SCOTUS,gives his job back,plus all back pay ,and benefits? Good for him. Socks to be his department& city council who made that bone head decision!

  • Givesendgo is doing absolutely what we should all do….defend our rights to free speech and independent thought. Salute to Officer Kelly! You will be vindicated!
