Police Recover Weapon From Vehicle Of
Wisconsin Shooting Victim Jacob Blake

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 8/27/2020 12:09:44 PM

Jacob Blake had a weapon on the driver’s side of his vehicle when a police officer, who has now been identified as Rusten Sheskey, shot him seven times in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Sunday evening. Blake was leaning into that side of the vehicle when the officer discharged his weapon. According to the Wisconsin Department of Justice, police recovered a knife from the floorboard, but the agency did not say whether Blake, a 29-year-old black man, was holding the weapon when Sheskey shot him in the back,(Snip)Video stills of the incident appear to show Blake holding a small object resembling a knife prior to the shooting, but the department has not confirmed


After resisting the officers and not reacting to a taser, he ran to the driver side where photos showed him making a dive through the opened door to the direction where the knife was found. Until they got into the car, they didn’t know what other weapon he might have had there. He admitted he had a knife, photo shows him with something like a carpet cutter in his hand, and he grappled with police when they were trying to subdue him.

FTA: According to court records, an arrest warrant was issued against Blake on July 7 for felony third-degree sexual assault, as well as misdemeanor charges of criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct, all related to domestic abuse. The police in Kenosha were responding to a call from the woman who said she was his girlfriend - that he was there and he wasn’t supposed to be there. No mention yet of whether there was a restraining order, but his history re domestic abuse (which includes girlfriends) is not great.

Does this mean rioters have to apologize to the property owners for the fire and destruction they did by mistake? This is always the case in every shooting of a black man immediately loot and burn the city to find out the person was armed and dangerous when it's too late. Who with me is tired of this behavior of a group of people who refuse to fit in with society.

It won't matter to BLM. They'll say police were never at risk, the arrest warrant was for minor issues, and there's no obligation to listen to law enforcement. The dozens of looted and burned-out businesses are apparently legitimate 1st Amendment expressions according to the Left.

FTA: "After the shooting, the officers immediately administered medical aid to Blake until Flight for Life transported him to a Milwaukee hospital, where he is now located, according to the DOJ release." The suspect is still hospitalized, and allegedly paralyzed from the waist down. In the photo published with the article, the suspect can be easily seen holding what appears to be a knife with a curved blade, seen as he is leaving the girlfriend's premise, with police training their gun on him, when Taser didn't stop him.

OK, had a knife, and they could not tell if he was reaching for a gun when shot. That's pretty easy to acquit on, IMO. They knew that they had a felon, with warrants, and it was a domestic disturbance. All officers know that a domestic disturbance is highly likely to become violent, they are especially keyed up that one of the parties is very likely to go on a rampage with weapons, with both knives and guns often used. My LEO friends said they always wanted to get the two warring parties out of the house, and separated by at least 50 ft. Out of the house gets them away from the easy availability of a drawer full of butcher knives. And separated means that each tells his own story, not keying off the other's version, or exploding at some point when listening. Domestic disturbances are a 4 alarm fire for cops. People are CRAZY in these cases, hugely emotional, unpredictable. Often a beat up wife explodes when officers start to cuff her husband/boy friend and more than a few have pulled a butcher knife on the cop to keep the guy who just beat her up from being arrested. Go figure. Craziness.

The survey, which was conducted during the Democratic National Convention, and before the Republican National Convention, showed James with 48.1 percent support, compared to 46.6 percent for Peters.

Egged on by Joe Biden and Wisconsin governor Tony Evers, a mob of Black Lives Matter rioters has been burning down Kenosha, Wis. They are angry over the latest police shooting of yet another black criminal who assumed he is racially entitled to resist arrest. The new Zeroth Amendment to the Constitution reads “No Black man must submit to being arrested if He’s really not in the mood to be arrested.” (The old Zeroth Amendment—“Everybody on Earth has the right to immigrate to America and Americans aren’t allowed to object”—was demoted to the Negative First Amendment about the time in June it was decided that blacks are now Blacks.)

Formentera, Spain - Nowadays it is impossible to go out on the streets and not break the law in some way, often unconsciously. The increase in prohibition and regulation with the viral excuse brings many European democracies dangerously close to the dictatorships of the last century. Many laws transform us into criminals, and the sanitary mask is a perfect atrezzo for the vulgar modern bandit. Perhaps that is why this summer more boats are seen than ever before sailing along the Spanish coast, especially in the Balearic Islands. With such legal chaos on land, the sea offers the promise of freedom, like in the times of the lame corsair Byron.

The Republicans have now forced the Democrats to change course and tactics, shed their narcissistic complacency, and recognize that they are in the fight of their lives. When the history of this astonishing political year is written, there will be amazement that the Democrats ever imagined that they could preserve the entire election as a referendum on Trump based on the question of whether the population is content, and leave the president floundering in blustery self-justification while their nominee fielded soft pre-agreed questions from his home. The Democratic National Convention was essentially centered in a Wilmington catacomb and featured an unexciting procession of former officeholders,

Yesterday Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old accused of shooting three rioters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, killing two and injuring one, was arrested. He was charged with first-degree intentional homicide. President Trump has since sent in the feds and the national guard after the useless governor of Wisconsin previously turned down offers of support. Hooligans are rioting because a black man with a criminal record of violence was shot by cops when he resisted arrest, marched to his car and appeared to reach into grab something.

It is sometimes underappreciated how new professional sports is as a dominant cultural phenomenon. For the vast majority of human history, sports has been overwhelmingly played by amateurs. And even in America, it is only in the past fifty years that this professionalized version of sport became a route to wealth.
