Jacob Blake was shot because he was reaching into his car to grab something. The media isn’t telling that story, but it is nonetheless what happened.
This happened after he spent a good amount of time wrestling with the cops.
The thing is: you always eventually go to jail. No one wrestles with the cops and escapes to live their life in peace. That is the message the media should be telling the blacks: if you do not resist, you will not get killed by the cops.
Whatever you think of any of these recent highly-publicized black deaths, all of them were resisting, which is something a white person will pretty much never do. So that certainly indicates why blacks are more likely to die at the hands of cops than some incomprehensible theory about systematic hatred for their skin color.
The 29-year-old unarmed black man who was shot seven times by a Wisconsin police officer on Sunday was involved in a brawl with several Kenosha cops moments before the shooting.
Amateur video shows the events leading up to the shooting – though the footage is taken from the opposite angle of the initial viral cell phone clip in which Jacob Blake is seen walking toward his SUV before he is gunned down.
In the latest video, Blake is seen wrestling with at least two Kenosha police officers.
Blake then manages to break free from the mayhem and begins to walk from the passenger’s side of his SUV to the driver’s side.
As he opens the driver’s side door, gunshots ring out. The video ends there.
The officers involved in the shooting have been placed on administrative leave and are said to be cooperating with investigators, according to the Wisconsin Department of Justice.
The state DOJ has launched an investigation into the shooting.
Blake, who is listed in serious condition at a Milwaukee hospital, was shot in the back seven times in front of his three children after police were called to his home to reports of a domestic dispute on Sunday.
Video of the shooting of Blake quickly went viral, with angered protesters setting cars on fire, smashing windows and clashing with officers dressed in riot gear across the city throughout Sunday evening and into the early hours of Monday.
Meanwhile, the police union representing officers on the Kenosha police force released a statement on Monday criticizing Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers, who immediately condemned the ‘excessive force’ used by the cops.
‘Anytime deadly force is used, our hearts go out to those affected by it,’ Pete Deates, president of the Kenosha Professional Police Association, said in a statement.
‘We assure you an independent investigation is being conducted by the Wisconsin Department of Justice, Division of Criminal Investigation.
By the way, what were the cops arresting him for?
Looks like he broke into someone’s home to commit a rape.
Online court records indicate Kenosha County prosecutors charged Blake on July 6 with sexual assault, trespassing and disorderly conduct in connection with domestic abuse. An arrest warrant was issued the following day. The records contain no further details and do not list an attorney for Blake.
Moreover, he has a history of assaulting the police.
Jacob Blake, the man shot by police in Kenosha, Wisc., has a history of assaulting police. He also has past charges for domestic abuse & a sex crime. There's a warrent for his arrest. BLM rioters are currently destroying the city to avenge the shooting. https://t.co/BErLeJdPwj pic.twitter.com/JhHcbis5kf

But he’s a good boy.
Didn’t do nothing.
Cops murdered him because they hate dark tones of skin.
