Ricky Schroder is facing death threats after his hefty donation helped teenager Kyle Rittenhouse bond out of a Wisconsin jail on Friday, Nov. 20.

Rittenhouse, 17, was arrested in August and charged in the shooting deaths of 2 Antifa activists during Jacob Blake protests in Kenosha.

His $2 million cash bond was raised mostly through public donations to crowdfunding websites and the generosity of millionaires like Schroder and Mike Lindell, CEO and founder of MY Pillow.

Now Schroder is receiving death threats on social media, and Twitter users are posting his address online.

Schroder, 50, retweeted some of the threats on Twitter.com alongside a photo of himself armed with a Mossberg shotgun.

He captioned the post: "To my Democrat Friends. This is the country want to live in? #f-ckantifa."

One Twitter user wrote: "Ricky's house is clearly listed online. Hopefully a patriot will scope out Ricky and report back. Ricky and his disgusting coffee should pay for the murder and terrorism they support. We the people pray Ricky gets what he deserves..."

Another user tweeted: "Have some exciting things planned for Lil Ricky. Lots of people looking for justice. We will see you soon Ricky and make an example of you. Good luck terrorist..."

Schroder is best known as the child star of the film The Champ, starring Jon Voight and Faye Dunaway (1979) and the television series Silver Spoons (1986-1987).

A Jacksonville woman who shot at police officers breaking into her home says her 911 call proves she did not know they were cops.

Diamonds Ford and her boyfriend Anthony Gantt were asleep in bed when Jacksonville sheriff's deputies served a "high-risk" no-knock search warrant at their home around 8 a.m. on Sept. 28.

Ford, 28, and Gantt were jolted awake by the sound of glass shattering. Gantt handed Ford her .45 caliber handgun which she fired seven times through a window while pleading with a 911 dispatcher to "send someone."

One officer was shot in the chest but he was saved by his armored vest.

Ford and Gantt surrendered after the officers identified themselves as officers from the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

"I'm opening the door!" she told the officers. "You got the wrong house!"

Deputies found just over 4 ounces of weed in the home - a misdemeanor in some states. Ford and Gantt were charged with attempted murder on a police officer and armed possession of marijuana. They are still in jail, unable to afford their high bail.

Ford, speaking through her attorney, says she is innocent and that the 911 call proves she did not know the home invaders were officers.

"She had no idea it was law enforcement in her home. Once they made their announcement she complied," said attorney Stephen Kelly.

On Thursday, rapper Killer Mike posted news footage about the Ford and Gantt case and captioned it "Free'Em!."

One of his Instagram followers asked Mike, "Where is the philanthropists with buckets of cash to pay her bail.... ain't you starting a bank?"

Ford and Gantt are being compared to 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse who killed two Antifa activists during a Jacob Blake protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin in August.

Rittenhouse was freed on $2 million cash bond paid by his attorneys on Friday, Nov. 20. The $2 million was raised through public donations.

Former child actor Ricky Schroder and Mike Lindell, CEO and founder of My Pillow, contributed large donations to top off the bail fund for Rittenhouse.

Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old who shot and killed two Black Lives Matter protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin was released on bond Friday.

Rittenhouse, who was charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide, posted $2 million bond -- mostly donations raised through crowdfunding websites.

He posted bond through his attorney at about 2 pm, Kenosha county sheriff's Sgt David Wright told reporters.

The teenager is accused of fatally shooting Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber and wounding Gaige Grosskreutz during violent Jacob Blake protests on August 25.

Rittenhouse, of Antioch, Illinois, told police he was attacked by the protesters. At least one protester was armed with a gun.

Conservatives praised Rittenhouse as a hero who was exercising his right to bear arms during the unrest in Kenosha.

His initial bail amount was $1 million, but an Illinois judge increased the amount to $2 million after Rittenouse's supporters quickly raised the $1 million to pay his bail.

The father of Jacob Blake, the Black man who was shot 7 times in the back by a Wisconsin cop, said his son was handcuffed to a hospital bed when he went to visit him on Wednesday.

Jacob Blake, Sr. said he was "heartbroken" to see his son laying there handcuffed to the bed.

"I hate it that he was laying in that bed with the handcuff onto the bed," said the elder Blake, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. "He can't go anywhere. Why do you have him cuffed to the bed?"

Blake is paralyzed from the waist down, his father said. He is in police custody in the hospital where he is recovering from surgery earlier this week.

A spokesperson with the Froedtert Hospital, where Blake is recovering, deferred a reporter's questions to the Wisconsin Department of Justice.

Blake, 29, was shot multiple times in the back and arm on Sunday, when Kenosha police officers attempted to detain him on an outstanding warrant for domestic assault and a sex crime.

Officers were called to the scene by Blake's girlfriend, who said he wasn't supposed to be there, according to the state Justice Dpartment.

Officers used a Taser on him, the state agency said in a news release Thursday, who added Blake was shot when he opened his driver-side door and leaned inside the vehicle.

Police recovered a knife from the driver-side floorboard of his SUV after the shooting. The state agency said Blake admitted having a knife in his possession.

The Kenosha officer who shot Blake was identified as Rusten Sheskey, who has been with the department for seven years.

Sheskey and another officer have been placed on paid administrative leave, authorities said.

Blake, Sr. said Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers, a Democrat, reached out to the family.

When a reporter asked Evers if he was concerned about Blake's restraints, he responded, "Hell, yes! I would have no personal understanding why that would be necessary. I can't imagine why that's happening and I would hope that we would be able to find a better way to have him get better and recover."

Former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang tweeted Thursday that he spoke with Blake Sr. about his son.

"His first question after he woke up was, "Daddy, why did they shoot me so many times?" Yang tweeted. "He wept to his father. He has restraints on even though he can't move his legs."

"His father actually used the words 'chains.' He said my son is chained up," Yang told CNN's Erin Burnett.

Yang tweeted: "When asked what message I could share on his family's behalf, #JacobBlake Sr. said to me, 'Tell them my son is a human being.'"

The shooting sparked 3 nights of violent protests in Kenosha, where 2 people were killed and another wounded after video footage shows they attacked 17-year-old Illinois resident Kyle Rittenhouse, who was armed with an AR-15 assault rifle.

Rittenhouse is charged with first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide, two counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety, attempted first-degree intentional homicide and possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under 18.

Wisconsin is an open carry state, but Rittenhouse is a year under the legal age limit to open carry a firearm.

An Antioch, Illinois judge ordered Rittenhouse held without bail at a juvenile detention facility pending a hearing on Friday to determine whether he will be extradited to Kenosha County.

Famed Atlanta attorney Lin Wood offered to represent Rittenhouse for free after GoFundMe deleted a page launched by his father to pay his legal expenses.

Authorities say Wednesday night was peaceful in Kenosha, where a 7 p.m. curfew is in effect.

A 17-year-old was arrested and charged in the fatal shootings of two Black Lives Matter protesters during violent Jacob Blake protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin Tuesday night.

Kyle Rittenhouse, who is a Caucasian Blue Lives Matter activist, was arrested Wednesday at his home in Antioch, Illinois, and charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide.

Rittenhouse was initially labeled a "fugitive from justice" because he "fled the state of Wisconsin with intent to avoid prosecution".

The teenager is being held without bond while awaiting extradition to Wisconsin. Antioch police Cmdr. Norman Johnson said Rittenhouse was charged as an adult.

Famed Atlanta attorney Lin Wood, who recently settled a defamation lawsuit against CNN for teenager Nicholas Sandmann, offered to represent Rittenhouse for free after GoFundMe deleted an account created by the teen's father for legal expenses.

A 36-year-old white male Kenosha resident, later identified as Joseph Rosenbaum, was fatally shot in the head during an earlier confrontation with Rittenhouse. Rosenbaum allegedly yelled, "Shoot me, ni**a!" before throwing something at Rittenhouse.

The shootings occurred around 11:45 p.m. Tuesday.

Rittenhouse (3rd from left) is pictured hours before the shootings cleaning graffiti off a Kenosha courthouse.

He was interviewed by a street journalist minutes before he shot and killed two BLM protesters and wounded a third.

"So people are getting injured and our job is to protect this business," he said in the video. "And part of my job is to also help people. If there is somebody hurt I'm running into harm’s way. That's why I have my rifle because I need to protect myself, obviously. I also have my med kit."

Rittenhouse said he was "pepper sprayed" by a demonstrator in the crowd during the protests. When asked if he was using non-lethal crowd control, he replied, "We don't have non-lethal."

According to video footage, Kenosha police drove past Rittenhouse who had an AR-15 rifle slung over his shoulder as members of the crowd were yelling for them to arrest him because he had shot people.

Photos from Rittenhouse's deleted Facebook page shows him as a youngster wearing a police uniform and wielding a semi-automatic rifle.

Black Lives Matter activists took to Twitter Wednesday night to complain that police helped Rittenhouse and let him go when protesters chased him after the shooting.

Democratic nominee Joe Biden finally condemned the riots and violence on Wednesday, after CNN anchors Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo pleaded with him to speak out because the riots hurt the Democrats' chances in November.

Cuomo said, "I think [the riots] probably represents the biggest threat to the Democratic cause."

"Kenosha is a Rorschach test for the entire country, and I think this is a blind spot for Democrats. I think Democrats are ignoring this problem or hoping that it will go away, and it's not going to go away," Lemon said Tuesday night.

Speaking remotely from his beach house in Delaware, Biden urged protesters to remain peaceful and avoid "needless violence". Biden quoted Jacob Blake's mother, Julia Jackson, who said her son would not want to see violence and destruction carried out in his name.

Blake, a 29-year-old Black man, was shot 7 times in the back by a white police officer responding to a domestic disturbance call on Sunday. Police were advised that Blake was wanted on warrants for domestic violence and sex crimes.
