Accused Kenosha killer Kyle Rittenhouse smiles in photo with 'Silver Spoons' star who helped bail him out

·1 min read

Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old charged with gunning down two people during protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, following the police shooting of Jacob Blake, posed for a photo with actor Ricky Schroder and his attorney after posting bail Friday.

All three smiled, celebrating the occasion.

L. Lin Wood, who is part of Rittenhouse’s defense team and also a QAnon believer, shared the photo.

Wood said Schroder and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell donated the final money needed to pay Rittenhouse’s $2 million bail.

Rittenhouse is charged with killing Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, on Aug. 25. Both men were fatally shot during protests demanding justice for Blake, who was paralyzed after being shot seven times in the back by Kenosha Officer Rusten Sheskey.

Rittenhouse is also charged with shooting Gaige Grosskreutz, 36, in the arm.

The case has become a cause celebre among right-wingers like Lindell, a President Donald Trump pal, and Schroder, who spoke at the 2000 Republican National Convention and left Twitter after his Rittenhouse support was revealed.

Schroder is best known for his work as a child actor, playing Ricky Stratton on “Silver Spoons” in the 1980s. He racked up numerous TV and movie credits since then, most notably appearing in 58 episodes of “NYPD Blue.”

He was arrested in May 2019 on domestic charges, which were dropped three weeks later.
