The more that comes out about the incident yesterday between police and a black man in Kenosha, Wisconsin, the more it appears the police may have been justified in acting to stop the man who ignored their commands.
In any case, this is not what is being portrayed by the mainstream media, Biden campaign, and BLM activists: an innocent man “murdered” for no reason.
Here is what the national media will NOT tell you.
Jacob Blake, the man shot by police in Kenosha, Wisc., has a long history of violent crimes, domestic violence, assaulting officers and resisting arrest.
There had also been a warrant for Blake’s arrest issued on 7/7/2020 (see below) for misdemeanor criminal trespass to a dwelling with domestic abuse as a modifier; felony third-degree sexual assault with domestic abuse as a modifier; and misdemeanor disorderly conduct with domestic abuse as a modifier.
He also has numerous past charges for gun crimes, police assault, domestic abuse and even a sex crime. One arrest from Racine County Eye is detailed below where he resisted officers:
Here is the full text of the report:
Racine police say K9 Dozer had to help officers take a man into custody when the man refused to go quietly into custody after he pulled a gun at a local bar.
Jacob Blake, 24, of Racine, was charged Monday in Racine County Circuit Court with one felony count of resisting arrest, causing a soft tissue injury to a police officer, and one misdeameanor count each of carrying a concealed weapon, carrying a firearm while intoxicated, endangering safety-use of a dangerous weapon, and disorderly conduct. If convicted, he will face up to 8-1/2 years in prison and/or up to $50,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint, Blake and two women were at the Brass Monkey Tavern, 1436 Junction Avenue, Saturday, when Blake got into an argument with another patron and pulled a black handgun. Glake pointed the gun at another man, and the magazine fell to the floor. the bartender told Blake to leave, and he did but then pointed the gun through the window at patrons inside the bar before walking South on Junction Avenue.
So last night in Kenosha the police were called about a domestic violence situation and arrived to find Jacob Blake — who had an outstanding arrest warrant for domestic violence — who was ignoring commands from the police and attempting to leave with young kids in the car.
As he reached into his car, he was shot seven times (see video below). Were the police trying to protect Jacob Blake’s victim and the children from a known serial domestic abuser and violent felon? Don’t those black lives matter too?
How many times have we seen perps gets guns from cars and shoot police? Many times, sadly some of those with fatal results to officers.
Like this 2018 incident, in which a man escapes a Taser restraint (as did Blake), goes to his car to get his gun and shoots officers (see 0:40 mark):
Those officers showed almost unbelievable restraint in not using lethal force — and paid the price for it.
Now another look at what happened last night — at least from the single angle, far away shot we are able to see — when police attempted to arrest Jacob Blake.
The video below shows Jacob walking away from the police. The police officer walking behind him has his gun drawn. It’s not clear what the police are saying to him, but Blake keeps walking away and proceeds to open the driver’s side of a vehicle and reach inside. The police officer behind him pulls on his t-shirt, as he tries to stop him from entering the vehicle, but he continues to move inside the vehicle, leaning down as though he’s grabbing at something. The police officer then appears to open fire on the suspect.
***Warning***the video is very graphic.
Maybe the officers were justified. Maybe not.
What is damn well NOT justified is bashing another officer in the back of the skull with a BRICK, causing a concussion, as happened an hour after the shooting:
Or the torching of a large portion of the town, including an entire car dealership up in flame from rioting mobs:
Are we a nation of laws, or of uncontrolled violent mobs?
