#862 - Police Officer Fired Over $25 Donation to Kyle Rittenhouse Demands Job Back After Verdict
Show Notes

A Virginia police officer who was fired for sending a donation to Kyle Rittenhouse's defense is asking to have his job back now that the teen has been acquitted of murder charges

Norfolk Lieutenant William Kelly was fired in April by city officials for donating $25 to fund the legal fees for Rittenhouse, who fatally shot two people and injured one during a protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August 2020.

Kelly was first placed on administrative duty before he was fired as his actions were being investigated.

"I have reviewed the results of the internal investigation involving Lt. William Kelly. Chief Larry Boone and I have concluded Lt. Kelly's actions are in violation of City and departmental policies," said Norfolk City Manager Chip Filer in a statement in April.
