Candace Owens Writes HUGE Check For This Fired Cop

Written By BlabberBuzz | Thursday, 25 November 2021 09:30

Candace Owens gave a massive check to an officer terminated for the support he offered to Kyle Rittenhouse.

The Conservative commentator gave Lt. William Kelly a sweepstakes-sized check for $202,000. Kelly reportedly contributed $25 to Rittenhouse's defense fund while the teenager faced charges related to the shooting deaths of two rioters and injury of one more amid the Jacob Blake protests in August 2020.

Even though he has the check in hand, the amount is growing to over $240,000.

In a preview clip first shared with Fox News, Owens told her audience she wanted to offer the ultimate response to the backlash Kelly and his family had faced for "siding with the truth."

"I said I want to raise $100,000 for him," Owens said on her show, Candace. "Instead, we raised north of $240,000."

Owens and Kelly received standing praise from the live audience.

"I am so grateful for our police officers," Owens said on Monday. "I can't even imagine especially in today's political climate knowing that you're fighting for justice and you have an entire ecosystem of horrible people that are constantly fighting against you, fighting to defund you, telling you you're not allowed to exist unless you side with narratives that are actually lies. So this just makes me so happy."

"Thank you so much," Kelly told Owens.

Kelly is a 19-year veteran of the Norfolk Police Department in Norfolk, Virginia. He wasn't far from reaching the 20-year mark, at which point he'd have access to his retirement funds without a fine, according to a report.

However, he was fired in April when the city manager took Chief Larry Boone's recommendation to fire Kelly.

He is married with three children, and his wife is reportedly fighting cancer.

On Friday, Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges after he was charged with two murders and shooting another amid the riots that took place in Kenosha, Wisconsin, following the 2020 police-involved shooting of Jacob Blake.

Rittenhouse and his defense team argued to the jury that he acted in self-defense while prosecutors alleged the teenager sought to instigate trouble and had the intention to kill.

"In my opinion, there are no winners in this case, there are no heroes in this case. I defended myself. I was attacked," Rittenhouse told Fox News' Tucker Carlson in his first interview since being acquitted.
