Illinois Dem Mary Lemanski slammed for mocking Waukesha tragedy with SICK Tweets
After the Waukesha Christmas parade tragedy that claimed five lives and injured over 40 people, an Illinois Democrat reportedly portrayed a connection between the Sunday, November 21, incident and Kyle Rittenhouse's acquittal in a mocking post. Rittenhouse was freed of all charges on Friday, November 19, after being accused of killing two men and injuring one in August 2020.
In a series of mocking social media posts, which is now probably deleted, Democrat Mary Lemanski said: “It was probably just self-defense.” Her tweet referred to the acquittal of Rittenhouse, who was declared not guilty recently and it was claimed that he acted in self-defense when he killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, Anthony Huber, 26, and injured 28-year-old Gaige Grosskreutz, during racial unrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin on August 25, 2020.

In another post, Lemanski said: “Living in Wisconsin, he probably felt threatened,” referring to the person of interest — reported to be Darrell E Brooks – detained in connection with the Sunday incident. She stated, “I’m sure he didn’t want to hurt anyone. He came to help people.”

She also tweeted, “I’m sad. I’m sad anytime anyone dies. I just believe in Karma and this came around quick on the citizens of Wisconsin.” “You reap what you sow, Wisconsin,” Lemanski wrote, before adding, “It’s sad people died, but when you open the door to vigilante justice, everyone seems threatening.”

Her tweets, however, created an uproar on social media with many slamming her for her sick tweets. One user wrote, "WTF? No. People are mad at you because you suggested innocent people in Wisconsin deserved to be run over by a car, all because Kyle Rittenhouse was found "not guilty" by his trial." Another one wrote, "After the tragedy in Waukesha last night, little Miss smartass @MaryLemanski posted this. You’re a disgusting human being. You need help."
"Just so everyone’s aware, these types of people genuinely think they’re the good guys. Genuinely disturbing to think about," one chimed, while another said, "@MaryLemanski
there is a special place in hell for you. Your children should be removed from your care immediately."

Meanwhile, a number of people have come forward to describe the horror they witnessed Sunday. “As we were walking back in between the buildings that we saw an SUV crossover just put the pedal to the metal and just zooming full speed along the parade route. And then we heard a loud bang, and just deafening cries and screams from people who are struck by the vehicle. And then, and then we saw people running away or stopping crying, and there, there are people on the ground who looked like they'd been hit by the vehicle,” alderman Angelito Tenorio, who had just finished marching, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Another witness Melinda Schultz added: “We just saw a red vehicle speeding down the road while the parade was going on. We thought maybe it was an unmarked cop or something. All of a sudden we realized that wasn’t the case. People started screaming ‘move, move, move’ to get people out of the way.”
