ANTIOCH, Ill. -- An online store has stopped selling merchandise supporting an Illinois teen who killed two people and wounded a third during a Wisconsin protest.
Prosecutors have charged 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse with multiple counts in the August shootings in Kenosha.
Rittenhouse maintains he fired in self-defense and some conservatives have praised him.
The Kenosha News reports that his family started selling "Free Kyle" merchandise through Printify last week, saying the money would go toward his legal defense.
Kimberley Motley, an attorney for one of the men Rittenhouse shot called the merchandise "disgusting."

MILLIONS OF Americans have acquitted themselves admirably during 2020, rising to the 12-month national challenge caused by a deadly coronavirus pandemic that remains to be resolved. Even Congress outperformed many expectations, passing two bipartisan pandemic relief measures: the $2.2 trillion Cares Act in March and a $908 billion follow-up measure Monday night.
Yet instead of rewarding this good behavior, President Trump has given the United States chaos for Christmas. Denouncing the bill, and then decamping from Washington for his Florida home with scant time left on Congress’s legislative calendar, he has gratuitously created the possibility of a veto that could not be overridden. Potential consequences include a government shutdown and — just as unthinkable — failure to deliver crucial support for the unemployed, small businesses and public health.
Mr. Trump demands direct payments of up to $8,000 for families of four earning as much as $150,000, which is far more than the $600-per-person his own negotiators agreed to and which would cost an additional $370 billion. The president’s last-minute dealbreaking was too much even for the usually Trump-compliant House Republicans. They quite rightly shot down House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) attempt to pass the extra money by unanimous consent Thursday. We can hardly fault Ms. Pelosi for taking a free shot at the GOP after Mr. Trump embraced the politically popular idea of free money for voters, but the cause of bigger “stimulus checks” is not remotely worth blowing up Congress’s overall compromise. Sending billions of federally borrowed dollars to families earning twice the median income is the opposite of progressive and would not even stimulate the economy very much, since experience shows higher earners are likely to save the money, not spend it.

“I am so disappointed and saddened that this happened,” a New York hospital executive wrote to his staff after workers who did not have priority cut the line for the vaccine.
A Sauk County man was arrested Thursday for operating a motor vehicle under the influence 10th offense, the Wisconsin State Patrol said.
Clarence Gage, 77, of North Freedom, was arrested in Dane County after the state patrol received a report of a vehicle driving the wrong way on the ramp from I-39/90 east bound to Highway 12/18 westbound. He was sentenced to three years in prison in 2017 for his 9th OWI.
Traffic cameras were used to follow the vehicle and troopers made the stop early Thursday night.
"Upon making contact with the driver, troopers observed multiple signs of impairment," the state patrol said in a news release. "After administering Standardized Field Sobriety Tests, the driver was arrested for OWI 10th offense, and was taken for an evidentiary blood draw."

This documentary was done in August of 2020. When I first came out I thought it was a little over-the-top. However, what she says is correct. And now after the election you can see the connections. This was a CIA operation conducted within our own government by elected and non elected officials. By the way you cannot find this video anywhere on social media.

A Columbus, Ohio, police officer was relieved of duty following the fatal shooting of a 47-year-old Black man Tuesday during which he did not activate his body camera, Mayor Andrew Ginther (D) announced.
Why it matters: The shooting of the unnamed man comes after the Dec. 4 death of Casey Goodson, Jr., a 23-year-old Black man who was shot and killed by a sheriff's deputy, which triggered protests against police brutality.
"Our community is still raw and exhausted from the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and, most recently, Casey Goodson, Jr., right here in Columbus."— Ginther statement
Details: Ginther said during a briefing the police body cameras contain a 60-second "look-back" feature, which means the shooting was captured before the officer turned on his camera following the incident. But this does not record audio.
- "The officer involved has been relieved of duty, requiring him to turn in his badge and gun and stripping him of police powers pending the outcome of the criminal and subsequent internal investigations," Ginther said in a social media post.
- The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is investigating the matter.
- Neither the police officer nor the man who died have been publicly identified.
What they're saying: Police said in a statement officers were called out to a non-emergency disturbance 1:37 a.m. Tuesday about a man in an SUV that had been turned on and off multiple times.
- The officer opened fire when the man approached them with a phone in his left hand and his right hand in his pocket, per the statement. "A weapon was not recovered from the scene," the statement said.
- Columbus City Council said in a statement Tuesday, "The compounding heartbreak of learning an unarmed Black man was killed last night by a Columbus police officer is beyond description.
"Thoughts and prayers cannot soothe this pain, and the members of Columbus City Council are beyond frustrated at this senseless death. Too many families in our community are mourning at a time when we should be seeking peace and hope."
CodeMonkeyZ reports that President Trump is giving the 7 States in contention one more chance to clean up their fraud and get their State in order.
Dec 24: Pence is expected to tell state legislatures with dueling electors to immediately address the contention in their states to a resolution. States may: split electors, certify contested electors, conduct forensic studies, etc.
Jan 6: Not resolved? Throw out their electors.
And if a State doesn't like it, then it can go complain to the Supreme Court. Where it doesn't have standing anymore.
Seriously, they do.
Last night Governor Lee took to the lectern to, well... lecture.
Covid-19 is raging, he says. True.
But notice what's not "raging" -- the flu. In fact, Covid-19 has apparently vanquished the flu, consuming it. Indeed, since September only 666 cases of the flu have been recorded anywhere in the United States and just slightly more than one instance per state last week.
If you believe that's anything close to reality you need a lobotomy.
There are only two reasonable hypothesis on that: Covid-19 wasn't really -19 at all; in 2018, I remind you, hospitals were full to the top with flu patients yet we were not locking down and wagging our fingers, nor was anyone wearing a mask. Wait -- they were treating people in tents in 2018? Why yes, yes they were - in January of 2018..
This of course implies that either Covid "19" was actually around for the last several years and simply called flu or we're ignoring the flu.
