U.S. Department of Justice Confirms Federal Civil Rights Investigation Into Shooting of Mr. Jacob Blake https://t.co/7jzUTNDolN

Attorney General William Barr simply doesn’t have the time to stop rioters burning down your cities. Sorry, but they’ve got priorities – and right now, those priorities are BIG TIME SERIOUS.
You see, the cop who killed Jacob Blake did it for some single reason: because he found the tone of his skin to be aesthetically displeasing.
That is a call that shall not go unanswered by the brave AG Barr.
A federal civil rights investigation has been opened into the shooting of Jacob Blake by a police officer in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The incident sparked protests that quickly escalated into riots in which two people were killed.
According to the Department of Justice, prosecutors from the US Attorney’s Office and the Civil Rights Division will oversee the proceedings, with the investigation carried out by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and involving Wisconsin’s justice department, among other local authorities.
“Federal authorities are committed to investigating this matter as thoroughly and efficiently as possible,” the DOJ stated, adding that it “urged all members of the [local] community to allow the investigation processes.”
Addressing the days of unrest in Kenosha that followed Blake’s shooting – including serious arson and the deaths of two people during protests – federal and state authorities appealed to “everyone to act peacefully and abide by the law,” and warned of “stiff penalties for arson, rioting, firearms offenses, and other violent crimes.”
Blake, an African-American man, was shot seven times in the back by police in front of his three children on Sunday. He survived the wounds, but his family later confirmed that he is now paralyzed from the waist down.
So, there it is: that’s why the DOJ can’t deal with riots. Sure, these people’s faces are usually on video, and it would be totally easy to just arrest them and charge them with all these crimes they’re committing.
But you try being busy.
You have to focus on one thing at a time.
