Kyle Rittenhouse allegedly flashed white power signs and was caught drinking in a bar while being serenaded the "Proud Boys" anthem...
So, as a result, his bail conditions could very well be set to change.
Here's the full story...
In May last year, thousands upon thousands of people began taking to the streets in protest...And they were all marching for one thing: for the blatant racism and injustice in this country to be brought to an end.
Remarkably, they seemed to be working.

Thanks to the riots and the protests, Black Lives Matter began dominating global headlines and social media.
Protests were happening across the pond too...Hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets in the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. The global solidarity has been incredible to see.
We were witnessing history in the making...
And, even today, people are continuing to demand justice.
This is only the beginning...
THEYRE CHARGING THE OTHER 3 OFFICERS AND RAISED THE DEGREE. KEEP SIGNING PETITIONS, KEEP DONATING, KEEP CALLING. THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING— gabryelle (@gabryelle)1591208344.0
However, not all protests were peaceful...
A now eighteen-year-old white man opened fire.

Rittenhouse is known to be an avid "Blue Lives Matter" supporter...
And he is a prominent figure amongst far-right protestors meaning, of course, he isn't exactly a supporter of BLM.

Rittenhouse was arrested a few days later...
However, it was reported recently that Kyle's legal fight is being funded by his merchandise.

An online website is selling T-shirts, hoodies, stickers, mugs, iPhone covers, and laptop sleeves carrying the phrase 'Free Kyle.'
And the money that's being made is going directly toward his legal fees.
It looks like the families of the victims also plan to sue Kenosha officials.The family of one of the men killed by Kyle Rittenhouse during the Kenosha protests last summer has filed negligence claims.
The parents of twenty-six-year-old Anthony Huber filed for $10 million in damages.Gaige Grosskreutz, who was seriously injured by the now eighteen-year-old, also filed a claim for the same amount, with both alleging what happened could have been prevented if proper measures were put in place to protect the men, according to UniLad.
Kimberly Motley, who represents Grosskreutz, said...
And by no uncertain terms Kyle Rittenhouse is a murderer!— Stephanie J. Block (@Stephanie J. Block)1609196111.0
Huber’s family agrees it was negligence that lead to the death of their son...
According to Motley, "The primary objective is that we believe that Mr. Rittenhouse should be convicted of all the charges that he’s facing."

Kenosha County Board of Supervisors is currently discussing the claims.
But in the meantime, it seems as though Rittenhouse is living his best life.
Kyle Rittenhouse is not only out on bail, but is hanging out with his mom drinking in Racine, WI. The "free as fuck" shirt is a nice touch to the fuck you that is our judicial system. This country may just be broken beyond repair. pic.twitter.com/fFMJzb9Ryt— Mike Carpenter 🇦🇲 (@MrCistoolong) January 8, 2021
According to CCTV footage and snapshots shared by members of the public, the teen has been seen out drinking with his mom in Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin while also being "serenaded" by a group of adult men who sang the 'Proud Boys' anthem.
He also took pictures with people flashing the white power symbol.

And not to mention he was doing all of this while wearing a "Free as F**k" slogan shirt.
On Wednesday, the Kenosha County District Attorney's Office filed a motion to restrict him from doing this again.
Eddie Gallagher. Kyle Rittenhouse. Ashli Babbet. Blackwater Contractors. For a party that praises itself as the "Law & Order" party, they sure do love their war criminals, insurrectionists, and mass shooters.— Qasim Rashid, Esq. (@QasimRashid) January 11, 2021
It was never about law & order. It was always about white supremacy.
The court has not yet set a date to consider the request from prosecutors who filed for this motion.
