Jacob Blake, moments before he was shot by officers as he attempted to reach into his car

Jacob Blake, a criminal with a history of sexual assault and domestic violence, is being made a martyr by the mainstream media and radical Black Lives Matter activists.

A viral video of Jacob Blake being shot in the back by officers while attempting to reach into his vehicle was the focus of the media and activists since the incident took place Sunday evening.

The police arrived on the scene at around 5 p.m., due to a call about a domestic incident.

Blake is seen walking around his vehicle, as two officers point their guns at his back and repeatedly tell him to stop. Bystanders can also be heard yelling “stop” throughout the video. Blake then opens the drivers side door of his vehicle, and attempts to get in, looking like he is reaching for something. The police then open fire, shooting Blake in the back several times.

After the shooting, the officers attempted first-aid on Blake.

Blake’s neighbor Raysean White said that prior to grabbing his camera and recording the incident, he witnessed a struggle between the cops and Blake.

“One of them had him in a headlock and was punching him in his ribs, the other had him in a headlock on the other side of him and was pulling his arm. After they punched him in his rib, the female officer tased him, and Jacob kind of leaned on the car, and they proceeded to wrestle him toward the back of the car, and he went to the other side of the car. When they were on the other side of the car on the ground, I had to pick up my camera and start recording,” White said.

Video from a different angle that was not immediately available has been found showing Blake fighting with officers prior to being shot. This video shows the officers trying and failing to restrain him, and Blake pushing them off and walking towards his vehicle:

Media

After the incident, the Chicago Tribune wrote what was practically a love letter about Blake, describing a history of volunteering and family values, with their only source being Blake’s uncle. Journalism used to be an industry where multiple sources were required to print a story, but instead laziness and partisanship override the need to verify the truth.

The article was titled ‘Jacob Blake, Shot by Police Officer in Kenosha, Part of Evanston Family Long Associated with Community Activism’. It featured a discussion of Blake’s love of sports, music, and architecture. Sprinkled throughout the piece were quotes from Blake’s uncle, Justin Blake, such as: “He’s a lively young man. He’s like his father, my brother. He’s got a hell of a personality and he loves people.”

The Chicago Tribune then buried a paragraph deep into their article, which stated “Court records show Blake has a pending criminal case that started last month. Online court records indicate Kenosha County prosecutors charged Blake on July 6 with third-degree sexual assault, trespassing and disorderly conduct in connection with domestic abuse.”

Many other media outlets and Democrat leaders ran with the story of Blake being a martyr, another victim of police brutality. Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden tweeted about the incident, leaving out crucial details in order to frame the story to fit the Democrat narrative:

Blake’s History

Andy Ngo, journalist and editor of The Post Millennial, tweeted about the incident to add context to Jacob Blake.

Racine County police arrested Blake five years ago after he pulled a gun at a local bar. He was charged with one felony count of resisting arrest and causing injury to an officer; one misdemeanor count each of carrying a concealed weapon, carrying a firearm while intoxicated, endangering safety, use of a dangerous weapon, and disorderly conduct.

Blake currently had a warrant out for his arrest for criminal trespass, 3rd degree sexual assault, and disorderly conduct. The warrant was filed on July 7th, 2020 for an incident that took place on May 3rd, 2020.

Jacob Blake is currently paralyzed from the waist down after being shot 8 times, but the condition may not be permanent.

UPDATE (8/27/20): It has been confirmed by the Wisconsin Department of Justice that Jacob Blake had a knife on the floor of the drivers side of his car, where he had been seen reaching prior to being shot.

  1. Now in what free country in this World would this be tolerated, by even the police. Shooting an unarmed man who would not follow instructions in the back at close enough range where you already had hold of his clothes.
    Now when even in war Americans are not allowed to shoot the enemy in the back if they are running away, yet in the USA this seems to be OK. The problem lies in the police and no where else, when police can do these things and are never held accountable, it is a difference if the person is armed and threating to kill someone, which was not the case here in any way.

    • He wasn’t unarmed, he himself admitted he had a knife there is pictures of him with the knife in his hand he was tasered twice, fought with the police, resisted arrest was in violation of a restraining order, he was told to drop the knife several times he’s been in trouble with the law, for gun violations, pulling a gun out in a bar and threatening people, domestic abuse , rape, he had the keys to the woman’s car than he led the police to his car where his 3 kids were and reached to the floor boards and was shot. Police are trained to shoot several times, shooting in the back is permissible by the police if the perp is a danger to police or the community. Your stupid comment about the military isn’t allowed to shoot the enemy in the back is preposterous! I shot many Hajis in the back as well as my sniper buddies. Your full of shit. But if they allowed him to leave in that car with those 3 children and he killed them than you’d be blaming the cops for not stopping him smfh!

  2. “Attempted First Aid?” The Perp is still alive, so I’d say they succeeded in “Rendering First Aid,” not attempted. You’re using the wrong verb author.

  3. Once again, the media narrates a partial story, simply to insight more rioting and destruction! This man was no angel and once again, all he had to do was follow directions SCREAMED to him by EVERYONE! So here’s a question?? WHY did he feel the need to interject himself into an “domestic dispute “? Could HE have been the reason for the dispute? And he clearly had a 🔪 so was he going to use that knife to clear up the 2 already fighting? And I’m just curious if he didn’t stop for the police bc he may have had an outstanding warrant? Not sure but many of my questions are the same as millions of Americans that would have stopped before making such a grave error by trying to get away in his car full of kids! The police certainly did not put him in that situation HE DID! HE knew his kids were in the car yet he went there anyway and most of us would have absolutely led anything “violent “ or even potentially violent AWAY from our kids bc that’s what parents are supposed to do! Protect our young! So I’m sure many will “thumb thug “ me but these views are EXACTLY what many of us are thinking! And lastly, what the hell did destroying a car lot or ANY business do for your cause??? It just shows us how simple minded people are and that you can’t clearly speak to the truth of what is really happening in our world 🌎, so enough already!

  4. The story not being told by the MSM is there was a white man with an assault rifle and two black rioters (not protesters) assaulted him with their fists, feet, and a skateboard. This was their last mistakes. Reminds me of what my Dad taught me, play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

  5. Of course the elite-owned media is going to slant it as an unjust shooting.
    Seven shots? One shot to back of head and threat is neutralized.
    Police had every right to protect themselves from a suspect with a violent criminal record refusing their orders and reaching into the vehicle.
    I carry and when I was pulled for a light out, I left the firearm on the front seat and gave the trooper my Driver’s License and License to Carry telling him that the firearm was on the front seat. Relieved the tension instantly.

  6. When did people, attorneys, begin coming to conclusions while on camera, on national news media? What happened to Investigating an incident before releasing the facts?! I don’t like that the guy was shot by police but, from what I’ve read in several stories he said he had a gun in the car and was gonna get that gun, all while having a knife in his hand. Let’s wait for the investigation to conclude before going crazy. The family said they will sue the police department when the time is appropriate and the investigation is completed.

  7. So why doesn’t this know criminal stop and surrender to officers instead of escalate the situation. How else are the police supposed to handle a monster when he goes rogue on them. It is time for the media to stop glorifying creeps like this and stop elevating info from his relatives as to how wonderful he is while he has warrants against him, known to have guns and known to harm people. The liberals are sick!

  8. 1-Breonna Taylor, shot in her bed and she is black and did not have a criminal record- no warrants -innocent -in her own bed in her own apartment- no one has been arrested or charged? what did she do wrong to the police. wrong address…. oops

    2-Elijah McClain- Aurora Colorado one year ago Monday, Auroa young man with autism was walking home with a glass of Tea and choked out and shot with a drug while he begged to simply walk home – 2 more blocks and tell his mother- the Police celebrated by re-enacting how they killed him and were later terminated when the picture and video was released from the police men and women that killed him. They have not been charged for his murder. He complied, had no criminal record our outstanding warrants. Oops my bad
    3- Aurora Colorado on August 2nd 2020, A black mother and her 4 children were hand cuffed and detained- made to lay on the ground on their bellies with their hands cuffed behind their backs, in 90 degree weather, at gunpoint in a shopping center when their SUV was mistaken for a stolen MOTORCYCLE? My brother in law is a police chief and who in this nation thinks these things are ok? Our police are not trained in how to actually interact with people that may or may not look like them. The Unions need to be dismantled and anyone that wants to be a police person needs to pass a mental competency test and trained to communicate appropriately with human beings- People of color are people as well.
    4- watch the documentary 13th on Netflix and don’t be afraid to fight for equality for everyone that is a citizen of the United States of America. We have something that is called the constitution that is not being enforced fairly like it is supposed to be. THIS IS the REAL AMERICA – America will never be great EVER if its cannot grasp this basic truth.

  9. The past crimes of this thing and warrant should have put him behind bars. A missed chance to take out a piece of schit. You, leftists, are next the American people are gearing up. You are so naive your continued actions will help seal Donald Trump`s fate. Opp`s to you Fascist Socialist Trump wins again. We will be coming after you.

  10. I’m actually amazed that they allowed for comments, most of these f*cking articles our so dead wrong they don’t want your input. like the one about stretchin Gretchen if somebody don’t get that fucking c*nt out of office…

  11. Two things…

    First, I’m a 65 Year Old White Male. Tax Paying, Law Abiding Citizen, ex-Military Officer, Family Man. I absolute GUARANTEE you that if I acted like this idiot I’d get my dumb ass shot off too. Frightening or threatening an Armed Officer – ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND?!?!?

    Two, the scumbags who are actively tearing our Country apart do NOT care about what happened to this dumbass or the many before him – he is an EXCUSE. When the facts come to light, far more often than not it was the idiot on the ground who instigated the problem (as in CRIMINAL ACTIVITY) and simply would have nothing less than a lethal solution – nothing else would do.

    These incidents by out of control Criminals are an excuse for violence by “Antifa”, “BLM”, and all who wish to destroy our Republic, and ONLY an excuse.

    Does this excuse true Police Over Reach and the horrific violence they can bring? NO!!!! Root those people out and get them out of the system, but stop pissing down my leg and swearing it’s raining – this is an attempted “revolution” by the socialist and communist idiots who truly think that Uncle Ho had a better idea.
