For Kenosha gunman Kyle Rittenhouse, a Wisconsin judge has increased bail conditions, banning him from associating with white supremacists after being filmed at a Wisconsin bar being serenaded by white nationalist Proud Boys members.

Rittenhouse, who was wearing a T-shirt that read “Free as Fuck,” was also photographed flashing the “white power” OK sign.

The 18-year-old has been convicted of the fatal shooting of two unarmed protesters who were protesting the police shooting of Jacob Blake in August. The teen, who killed the men with an assault-style rifle he brought to the protest, said he acted in self-defense.

In November, Rittenhouse was freed from jail on a $2 million bond. The money was raised from sympathetic extremist right-wing individuals and groups.

Prosecutors noted that surveillance video at the bar in Mt. Pleasant outside Milwaukee showed Rittenhouse drinking and flashing “white power” signs as he posed for photographs after he pleaded not guilty at his Jan. 5 arraignment. He was also being serenaded by a group of Proud Boys who were singing “Proud of Your Boy,” an “Aladdin” song co-opted by the gang as its anthem.

The drinking age in Wisconsin is 21, but Rittenhouse could legally drink at the bar because his mother accompanied him.

Wisconsin prosecutors warned in a court motion earlier this month demanding stricter bond requirements. They said the “defendant’s continued association with members of a group that prides itself on violence, and the use of their symbols, raises the significant possibility of future harm.” They added, “Further, this association may serve to intimidate potential witnesses, who may be unwilling to testify in this case because they may fear that the defendant’s associates with harming them or their families.”

On Friday, new restrictions were issued, forbidding Rittenhouse from possessing firearms, drinking alcohol, or “knowingly” having “contact with any person or group known to harm, threaten, harass or menace others on the basis of their race, beliefs on the subject of religion, color, national origin or gender.

Mark Richards, Rittenhouse’s attorney, criticized the prosecutors’ motion in a court filing as a “not-so-thinly veiled attempt to interject the issue of race into a case that is about a person’s right to self-defense.”

Richards claimed that when he killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and injured Gaige Grosskreutz, 26, with an assault-style rifle that was illegal for Rittenhouse to possess in the state, the teen was acting in self-defense. Rittenhouse told police that during the demonstration that night, he was guarding a private company. The owner of the business said he had never asked anyone to protect his company.

After local police officer Rusten Sheskey shot Blake when reacting to a domestic disturbance call, the Kenosha protests erupted. Earlier this month, a Wisconsin prosecutor declined to file charges against Sheskey again, claiming he could not disprove the officer’s assertion that he acted in self-defense.



Cardi B deletes Twitter page (again) after fans trash her line of dolls and demand a new album






Cardi B deleted her Twitter page again after fans rejected her plans to release a line of dolls rather than a new album.

Cardi previously deleted her Twitter page in October, after teenage trolls criticized her for taking her cheating husband, Offset, back.

Her Twitter page isn’t actually deleted — it is only hidden. But Twitter will deleted her page permanently if she doesn’t reactivate it within 30 days.

On Friday, the Bronx rapper expressed disappointment that fans rejected her plans to expand her business empire like Jay Z.

In a livestream video on Instagram stories, Cardi complained that music videos take a month to produce, while a new album takes even longer.

Cardi wants to get to the cash flow NOW by dropping dolls “that look like me,” and she doesn’t get why her fans won’t let her be great.

She explained that music doesn’t pay the bills — particularly since streaming sales of new music online are at historic lows.

The 28-year-old rapper deleted her Twitter page then complained that her fans are “harassing” her for a new album.

“People don’t get rich, like — look at Jay Z — people don’t just get rich off music,” she said. “I gotta venture off to do something, to do other business ventures. It’s f—ing wack every time I do a business venture, you got people harassing me for a album.”

Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.

Ungrateful rappers like Cardi fail to recognize that fans are fickle. They will dump her like yesterday’s leftovers and move on to a new artist.

Listen to her rant below.

Man Kills Three Elderly Women Within The Same Apartment Complex





A Brooklyn man suspected of being a serial killer has been indicted for the slayings of elderly women who lived in the same apartment complex.

Kevin Gavin has been charged with first and second-degree murder for three slayings between 2015 and 2021. According to authorities, all the deaths occurred in the New York City Housing Authority’s Carter G. Woodson houses, where the women resided, in Brooklyn.

The first victim was 82-year-old Myrtle McKinney, who was stabbed in the neck with a steak knife on November 8th, 2015. The second was Jacolia James. The 83-year-old was strangled to death on April 30th, 2019. Gavin’s final victim was 78-year-old Juanita Caballero. She was strangled with a phone cord on January 14th of this year. Her death was ultimately the one that helped police stop the demented killer. Gavin was spotted on video surveillance using Caballero’s stolen debit and benefit cards before his capture on January 21st. It is unclear if he purposely targeted elderly women or if their ages were a coincidence.

Gavin, who is facing a life sentence, was ordered held without bond on Tuesday. His next court date is July 6th.

In a statement, Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez said that Gavin was an “alleged serial killer who murdered three of his elderly neighbors who trusted him and welcomed him into their homes only to have that trust violated in the worst way imaginable.”

Beyonce’s father Mathew Knowles rejects comparisons between his daughter and Chloe Bailey

Beyonce‘s father Mathew Knowles is livid that some people are comparing his superstar daughter to her protege, Chloe Bailey of Chloe and Halle.

During an interview on the “Leah’s Lemonade” radio show, host Leah A. Henry asked Mathew what he thought about the comparisons between Chloe and a younger Beyonce.

“Do you see the comparison? Like the same thing that you saw in young Beyonce, do you see that in Chloe Bailey?” Leah asked.

Mathew seemed shocked that anyone would compare a superstar to an aspiring singer without one hit song under her belt:

“You’ve got to be kidding me, right? You’re asking me that question? Are you actually serious that you are comparing that young lady to Beyonce?”

Leah then pointed out that many (young) fans have suggested Chloe would be a good fit to play Beyonce in a movie about the singer’s life.

“Okay, you’re talking about if somebody was doing a movie, not talent-wise”, he responded.

When Leah said “they say she’s literally like a young Beyonce in the making”, Mathew replied: “I’m asking you a yes or no question. Are you telling me someone’s an idiot enough to compare her to Beyonce, talent-wise? Are there people saying her talent is equal to Beyonce? They’re an idiot. Period.”

He continued: “That’s actually insulting to Beyonce. I mean, if you want to call out some like Barbra Streisand or you know, some people like that, like come on, man, really?… I want to get off this topic.”

Neither Chloe, nor Beyonce, have responded to Mathew’s remarks as WENN went to press.
