Jacob Blake Shooting: Kenosha Cop Will Not Be Charged

Jacob Blake Shooting: Kenosha Cop Will Not Be Charged”

"Because you all look pretty stupid right now", one woman said to troops, according to Kenosha News.

Mr Blake was left paralysed from the waist down after being shot several times in the back as he got into a vehicle where his three children were sitting. The city had planned to acquire body cameras in 2022, but after Blake's shooting, that timetable was sped up to put the cameras in use this year.

Protesters took to the streets of Portland on Tuesday following news of a Wisconsin prosecutor's decision not to press charges against a White police officer accused of shooting Jacob Blake over the summer. "He didn't try to take him down", Blake Sr. said.

"Any officer worth their salt, they're not going to let someone leave under these circumstances", Wray said.

Ahead of the charging announcement, Wisconsin Gov. The Kenosha Common Council also allowed Mayor John Anataramian to prepare for city-wide curfews following the DA's decision.

Blake's attorney, Benjamin Crump, wrote in a tweet that the decision not to charge the officers "failed not only Jacob and his family but the community that protested and demanded justice".

"I insist that this conversation be a complicated conversation, that it be a real conversation, not a simplistic one and that we talk accurately and thoroughly about the law and the facts", he said. The other officers involved will also not be charged.

Graveley said none of the officers involved in the shooting will face charges. And so from their perspective, they have tried this case, at their computer screen or in their living room.

Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger said he has an external hard drive with all the state's discovery material - extensive videos and reports - that he would turn over this week. Nor did the video show previous attempts to detain Blake, who was wanted on a felony arrest warrant, as police were told before arriving on the scene, Graveley said.

"It's really evidence about the perspective of Officer Sheskey at each moment, and what would a reasonable officer do", Gravely continued, citing an admission allegedly made by Blake that he had a knife in his vehicle as justification for Sheskey's conduct. "That kind of changes the tone of things", VanVleet said at the time. As Sheskey made a final attempt to detain the man, Blake turned and thrust the knife toward Sheskey, an act blocked on the video by the auto door and another officer, investigators said. "We must broaden the fight for justice on behalf of Jacob Blake and the countless other Black victims of racial injustice and police brutality", said Crump, who has represented other African Americans in high-profile civil rights cases. Graveley said the shots in the side show Blake had twisted toward the officer.

The Blake affair fueled the election battle that was raging at the time between Democratic candidate Joe Biden and outgoing Republican President Donald Trump, as Biden supported the Blake family and denounced systemic law enforcement racism, while Trump voiced his support for the police and the establishment of "law and order". "Black groups are organized and have a lot more allies now than they had five years ago". The officers first deployed a stun gun three times on Blake, but it had no effect. "To hear what happened in Kenosha today was a blow to the heart and to the gut, not only to that community, but to us and to every Black person that has been a part of this process, seeing these outcomes for so long".

"Wisconsin should adopt a statewide use-of-force standard providing that officers' primary duty is to preserve life and that officers must use de-escalation techniques to avoid force whenever possible", Kaul said in a statement.
