Wisconsin officer won't be charged in shooting of Jacob Blake

Two Shot in Kenosha Unrest Sue City, County for Negligence

"We're used to this and we didn't expect anything different than this", he said. "Those who want to take to arms have failed at realizing civil rights has not been about taking lives, it's been about saving lives".

Officer Rusten Sheskey shot at Blake's back seven times from close range as Blake opened the door of his vehicle, striking him four times and paralyzing him from the waist down.

He said Sheskey stopped shooting when he saw Blake was no longer a threat and immediately began to give Blake first aid.

A Kenosha police officer will notbe charged in the August shooting of Jacob Blake, the Kenosha County District Attorney announced Tuesday. Jacob Blake Sr. said. "For him to say that they could not charge because of a self-defence claim made by police is absolutely asinine and it flies in the face of all common sense when you watch the video".

The not guilty pleas by Rittenhouse come as Wisconsin Gov.

The decision came as the Kenosha City Council prepared to vote on a resolution by Mayor John Antaramian to create an emergency declaration for the city "regarding potential civil unrest". There is, however, a federal civil rights investigation presently underway, per Matthew Krueger, the USA attorney for Wisconsin's Eastern District, which will make its own charging decision. We have people, rules and laws that keep us in check from breaking and hurting other people, but when the officers involved in these shootings and situations aren't checked for when they abuse their power or cross the line, it puts fear in people's heart.

The Kenosha police officer charged with shooting Jacob Blake in the back seven times, paralysing him, was cleared by Wisconsin prosecutors.

"(The public has) tried this case at their computer screen or in their living room", he said. "As a professional, I am called upon to talk about how to try this case in a real jury room, in a real court room".

Covid deaths at record high as European Union approves second vaccine
Margaret Keenan, 90, received the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine at University Hospital in Coventry, England, on 8 December. But with the virus threatening to spiral out of control, some argue we're in far from an ideal situation.

Wray, who is Black, said he recognized the history of racism in the criminal justice system but the decision not to prosecute was grounded in the facts.

Graveley told reporters during a two-hour presentation Tuesday afternoon that investigators determined that the events leading up to the shooting began when the mother of Blake's children called police and said Blake was about to drive off in her vehicle. Sheskey then shot four bullets into Blake's back, and three into the side of his torso.

The Wisconsin Department of Justice, which is the investigating agency, said Sheskey and several other Kenosha officers were attempting to arrest Blake at the time.

"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. "All the discussion that he's unarmed contradicts even what he himself has said multiple times".

The district attorney said he "would have to disprove the clear expression of these officers that they had to fire a weapon to defend themselves".

Blake, 29, was shot by officer Rusten Sheskey on August 23 after an altercation between Blake and multiple officers.

An attorney for the Blake family said (quote) "We will continue to press forward with our own investigation and fight for systemic change in policing and transparency at all levels". "Black groups are organized and have a lot more allies now than they had five years ago".
