New Mayor, New Changes To Kenosha’s Social Media Policy – No Commenting Allowed

Kenosha has a new mayor, and now, apparently, a new social media policy – no comments allowed. Kenosha has had a Facebook for about four years now. The previous mayor, John Antaramian, didn’t want much posted on social media. Now that Bogdala is the boss, there is more and more information going out to the public, which many find helpful. However, people are reporting to KCE that they are making comments critical of the City, and their comments are being removed, in conflict with the State of Wisconsin’s public records law. This can also be seen as an anti-first amendment position to take. The posts are then being “locked down,” said one resident. KCE did in fact confirm that most posts that are published say at the bottom, “City of

In an almost 200-page report released to KCE by the Kenosha Unified School District, the public is learning more about a groomer teacher named Christian Enwright. Enwright was fired from KTEC and criminally charged for what a group of attorneys call “manipulate[ing], emotionally abus[ing], and communicat[ing] with [his victim] for sexual gratification and attempt[] to groom [her] for sex.” According to the report, Enwright acted inappropriately with “Student A,” “Student B,” “Student C,” and other female students. “Student A” was the student for which Enwright was criminal charged, named “Holly.” KUSD never notified Kenosha Police and refused to cooperate with Kenosha Police for a long period of time. In fact, HR Director Kevin Neir, who authored the report, was fervently trying to put Enwright back into the classroom. Several parents

Kenosha Man Arrested, Charged For Sexual Exploitation Of A Child, 10 Counts Of Possession Of Child Pornography – $100,000 Bail Set

*Graphic Depictions of Sexual Crimes Involving Children* A Kenosha man is facing a minimum sentence of eight years, and a maximum sentence of 290 years in a Wisconsin Prison if convicted of all sex charges filed against him.
