Say their names (Non-fiction)

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinal recently posted profiles of the victims of Kenosha, WI shooting, and, refreshingly, it wasn’t a hit piece.

Anthony Huber, 26, of Silver Lake

Friends described Huber as a happy and laid-back guy who loved to skateboard.

“He was always a really sweet person. Always had a smile on his face,” said Max Seebeck, who grew up skateboarding with Huber in Kenosha.

From what I saw in the video, I believe he saved at least one person’s life when he charged at the shooter, Kyle Rittenhouse.  It’s disgusting that the right-wing media has tried to portray Huber as the attacker.  Especially when some conservative writers call bystanders cowards for not charging at a shooter during a shooting spree.  There is a GoFundMe page for his partner.

Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, of Kenosha

According to social media posts from friends and family, Rosenbaum is a Texas native. He moved to Kenosha within the last year.

Rosenbaum was shot in the head, a friend said.

There is a GoFundMe page set up to raise money for burial expenses.

Gaige Grosskreutz, 26, of West Allis

Grosskreutz was shot in the arm and is expected to survive.

Grosskreutz was in Kenosha on Tuesday with the Milwaukee-based social justice group the People’s Revolution Movement, spokeswoman Bethany Crevensten said…Grosskreutz had volunteered as a medic at Black Lives Matter protests across Milwaukee this summer, according to WTMJ-TV.

There’s a GoFundMe page set up to help cover his medical expenses.  The last update on the page says he won’t lose his arm, but will need more surgeries.

All three of them peacefully protested that night for social justice.  Their lives were more valuable than a boarded up gas station Rittenhouse claimed he was defending.  We should be saying their names too.
