No good deed goes unpunished.
For months, Kyle Rittenhouse, a young man caught in the middle of a fight certainly not of his own making, languished in a Wisconsin jail while cash was raised for a $2 million bond. He was being held on murder charges when a video of the incident in question clearly showed that he fired a weapon in self-defense.
Given that the shooting took place during one of the summer’s Black Lives Matter/ANTIFA uprisings in Kenosha, Wisconsin, naturally, the white young man from Illinois was essentially held as a political prisoner until this past weekend when some large donations to his bail fund came in.
That being the case, Schroder called the police.
Officers logged a suspicious circumstances report that stops short of considering the posts a criminal threat, according to the entertainment outlet, which cited law enforcement sources. Neither Los Angeles police, the county sheriff nor Schroder’s production company immediately responded to HuffPost’s request for comment.
He later confronted those commenting via social media.

Despite his own troubles with the law over the years, Ricky Schroeder has now proven himself to be one of the “good guys” in Hollywood (which may account for the little audiences have seen from him in recent years). And this is how Americans think they can just respond? With threats and wishes for the destruction of private property? Retribution for a crime that was not only not one but did not and does not involve those making the threats?
What has happened to America?
And, Ricky, frankly, many of us do not want to live in that kind of America. Not at all.
