The DA was asked to charge the group that came from Missouri, Washington State, Hawaii, California, and Oregon that were volunteering with the Seattle-based “Riot Kitchen”. According to Kenosha Sergeant Hecker:

“Sgt. Albrecht (had) multiple individuals in custody at the Speedway Gas Station located at 3012 Washington Road, which is in the city and county of Kenosha, WI. It was relayed that the individuals were filling containers with gasoline. While filling containers with gasoline is not unusual, the circumstances surrounding this incident are. At the time of this call, the city of Kenosha was experiencing looting, rioting, and destructive mayhem as a result of a police involved shooting. Many sections of town, government property, commercial property, and private property sustained significant damages due to arson that were started or fueled by individuals using containers filled with gasoline and other ignitable liquids.”

At least two of the subjects were alleged to have resisted/obstructed arrest. A KPD K9 alerted to the presence of narcotics on two of the vehicles and they were subsequently searched. Police found small explosives, drugs, riot gear, gas masks and other contraband. Some documents and electronics were turned over to the FBI at the Bureau’s request. Some of the recovered documentation made reference to Antifa and Black Lives Matter. According to the report, Assistant DA Jessica Krejarek appeared to have agreed to charge the suspects and gave them court dates of 9/24/2020. It is unclear what happened next, but it is believed that her boss, BLM sympathizer DA Michael Graveley (D) instructed the ADA to not prosecute. This is the second time that DA Graveley has made a charging decision based on politics. We reached out to Graveley and he didn’ respond.

  1. Keep in mind the voters keep putting Gravely into office.
    Kenosha County District Attorney Michael Gravely is pathetic at best.
    Gravely appears to enable all those who wish to bring mayhem and destruction to Kenosha County.
    The rule of law is warped and corrupt in Kenosha County.

  2. Graveley is honestly just a shitty attorney……surprised he even got the DA job. There is a reason he prefers to give deals or delegate higher profile cases to other ADAs.
