  5. Great press release. Of nothing.

    When the cops tell you to get on the ground. You dont go back in your car. Because they are going to think your going to get a gun and shoot them first. It looked like he was going to get something.

      TL;DR (actual news, minus the juice):

      Dude (Jacob Blake) had a felony warrant out for his arrest due to a sexual assault charge, amongst a host of other misdemeanors:

      (Kenosha County, Wisconsin: Case Number 2020CF000736),


      Police were initially called to a house involving a fight between two females.

      Police attempted to serve felony warrant.

      Dude not only resists arrest (was tazed multiple times), but *proceeds to get up, walk towards his car, and brandish a knife (seen in the left hand as he walks the front of the vehicle), police guns drawn on him the whole time, where his 3 children were allegedly seated.*

      You know, just going for a leisurely afternoon stroll with my blade, f**k the police and s**t.

      After telling Police he had a gun, reached in through his driver’s side door, and was finally shot.

      The truth travels around the World faster than the lies, now.

      God bless the free Internet.

      @Black Lives Matter Kiss My A55 Actually, they knew it was a high-risk warrant WITH an illegal gun, AND it even TOLD them it was reaching into the car to get a gun.

      @plyazcady Right, because thugs NEVER riot when a thug just gets BEATEN…Or you could look up the Rodney King riots of 1992.
      What stopped those thugs? It was NOT the cops!

    • Hypocrite using Innocent kid death to justify another bad policing.

    • Retiring Early | August 25, 2020 at 8:21 AM | Reply

      I think I had that model camera from Cannon. It refused to work though.

    • @Cali Atl Aw, did somebody use the example of an unjust death to rationalize a justified shooting of a fugitive, woman beating, sexual predator that literally told the cops he was going to his car to grab a gun and did you get your butt hurt from it? Typical ignorant little baby with nothing constructive or factual to add to the discussion.

    • @Cali Atl Also, where inline in my statement does the hypocrisy actually lay? It seems you have a tacit at best understanding of the word hypocrite

  8. It was a good shoot. He failed to comply and then reached into the nether.

  9. USA Today deleting my comments…nice 1st Amendment support

    • Lying Clown Replaces Evil Monkey because it’s all bs and if u don’t know that by now I honestly feel for u and yours.

    • @Lying Clown Replaces Evil Monkey Sure don’t know – but -> It has been my humble opinion that the COVID 19 stuff has 99.99% BS anyway. It was only a means of social engineering. During the plague of the 1300’s every other person on the street was croakin’. And after it societies had MAJOR improvements. Nature’s little urban renewal project.

      @Asia Major If you meant society rather than something esoteric like “genepool”, that’s because for the first time in centuries, there were more jobs than workers, and suddenly workers were valuable instead of expendable serfs/cogs!

      @Kimbo Slice My cousin died of Corona, but that’s because he’s a stupid daredevil. I fully believe “Play Stupid Games Win Stupid Prizes”.
      Whether with cops or with a worldwide plague.

      @Kimbo Slice Too bad America would rather let in foreign plaguebearers than be called “Racist and premature”. Which talking-head said that? And does it matter?

    According to Wisconsin Circuit Court Access online records, a Jacob S. Blake, same age and with an address in the same exact block where the shooting occurred, had a WARRANT ISSUED FOR HIM ON JULY 7 2020 on pending accusations of 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. A support action was dismissed, and the only other case that comes up is for not having a driver’s license.

    A 2015 story in Racine Eye described how “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.” The man was described as Jacob Blake, 24, of Racine, which makes him the same age as the man shot by police on August 23. The Racine Eye story says he was charged with “one felony count of resisting arrest causing a soft tissue injury to a police officer and one misdemeanor count each of carrying a concealed weapon, carrying a firearm while intoxicated, endangering safety-use of a dangerous weapon, and disorderly conduct.” Those charges don’t show up on the circuit court website though.

    That story further alleges, “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 unregistered black handgun. Blake pointed the gun at the other 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.”

    Police stopped Blake in a “high risk traffic stop” but he “exited the SUV and started walking toward officers and ignored commands to get down on the ground,” the story says. That’s when officers forced him to the ground and used a K9 when he kept resisting, the story adds.

  11. This was fun.

  12. That dude had a gun

    they have 57 accounts

  14. Burn

  15. Nothing to say! Exactly!

  16. They didn’t even speak?

  17. “Jacob Blake is a loving father of 6 that deserves proper medical attention and legal representation,” Blake’s family wrote on a GoFundMe website. Actually, he was a fugitive from justice with an outstanding warrant for his arrest resulting from a previous domestic violence incident. A real poster child for the BLM movement. And the incident in which he was shot was the result of someone calling the police for yet another domestic violence incident involving Jacob and one of the several “fiancees” that this fine unmarried church-going man was trying to father his 7th child with. This innocent saint refused to comply with officers repeated requests to stop fleeing the scene so they could arrest him. He didn’t listen, and instead reached into his vehicle like any loving father would to give a lollipop to each of his 3 children which were inside the vehicle. He got shot 8 times for reasons unknown by the big bad police man, and is now he is paralyzed, lucky to be alive. When you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes. Congratulations Jacob!

      Add another poster child to the criminals that will not comply therefore forcing the hands of officers,Do not resist,Do not grab a weapon and run and do not break away from a cop and reach for a knife in your car or chances are YOU WILL BE SHOT NO MATTER WHAT COLOR YOU ARE!

    He fought with police physically before trying to run away, he had a knife, had felony warrants for his arrest, and had priors for sexual assault-domestic violence-and fighting the police-resisting/obstructing-endangering safety with a dangerous weapon. This dude is not your messiah.
