Brace for Riots? Kenosha DA Does Not Charge Officer Who Shot Jacob Blake

By Faye Higbee

Kenosha has seen violence before over the shooting of Jacob Blake. But when the Kenosha DA chose not to charge the officer who shot him, the city issued a state of emergency ahead of the announcement, and Gov Tony Evers activated 500 National Guard troops. Jacob Blake will also not face charges.

Businesses were boarded up, and barricades and fences went up around government buildings in an effort to prevent what happened last time.

When WISN asked Jacob Blake Sr if he thought the city had made up their minds before the press conference, he said:

“They’ve called the National Guard. What do you think, they’re going to deliver mail?”

Blake Sr also stated that this decision simply furthers distrust in the system.

Kenosha DA Michael Graveley stated that Jacob Blake himself will not face charges stemming from the domestic abuse situation that prompted the shooting in the first place. The DA said that for Blake, the whole thing was a tragedy, since he is now paralyzed.

The DA stated that there was evidence given that was not shown on the videos that caused everyone to “try the case in the court of public opinion.”

“It’s a narrow task today, it’s a legal and professional task. Everybody has seen the video and so from their perspective they have tried this case at their computer screen or from their living room.”

He also stated that Blake was armed with a knife that was not seen in the widely shared video footage, and that Blake admitted it. That statement contradicted statements from the media. What we can see in those kinds of videos is not always the reality. The Washington Post, supreme leftwing authorities that they think they are, wrote that Blake was “unarmed,” when he was not (Fox). When he was shot he had just abused his ex-wife and stolen his own children. She is the one who called police for help. Officer Rustin Sheshky will not face charges for shooting Blake.

The other tragedy in Kenosha

17 year old Kyle Rittenhouse, the teen who shot two people and wounded another during the previous rioting in Kenosha, pleaded not guilty today at a “virtual arraignment” from his attorney’s office. He was released on a $2 Million bond in November.
