Preliminary reports had indicated that Blake was accosted by Kenosha Police after merely ‘breaking up a fight.’ The Wisconsin DOJ instead describes the Kenosha Police Department as receiving reports that Blake was trespassing in a woman’s home.

The document identified Kenosha Police Department officer Rusten Sheskey as the officer that fired on Blake.

The Wisconsin DOJ’s Division of Criminal Investigation is currently investigating the shooting with assistance from the FBI. All officers involved in the incident have been placed on leave, but there’s no sign that they’ll be subject to punishment or criminal sanction as of Wednesday.

Blake suffered serious injuries from the shooting, and is still receiving treatment at an area hospital. It’s unclear if he’ll be able to walk again.

Another camera angle of the incident reveals that the 29-year old man was brawling and wrestling with officers in an attempt to resist arrest. Blake may have been hoping to avoid identification in order to avoid being arrested for his outstanding felony sex crimes warrant.

Blake had been arrested and charged with felony crimes in 2015 and 2016, including one incident where he pulled a gun on a man in a bar fight.

Billionaire Mike Bloomberg Pays $16 Million in Fines of Black and Hispanic Felons to Enable Them to Vote

Bribery?

Published

on

Billionaire and former New York City Mayor has raised $16 million dollars to pay off outstanding fines of Black and Hispanic felons in Florida, according to reporting from Axios on Tuesday. Florida restricts the voting rights of convicted criminals until they’ve paid off fines levied for their crimes by the criminal justice system.

It appears that Bloomberg’s fine repayment initative was only available to Black and Hispanic felons. Axios reported that to qualify for Bloomberg’s money, applicants had to have outstanding fines of less than $1,500, be already registered to vote, and to be Black or Latino.

White felons need not apply.

The program has reportedly already cleared the fines of 32,000 felons in the state, enabling them to vote in the election. It erases the punitive aspect of the court system’s fines, which were levied in the first place in order to require convicted criminals to personally make amends for their actions.

Bloomberg’s felon bailout giveaway is legally questionable, and Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz has requested that Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody investigate what he’s doing. If he’s paying felons to vote for any one specific candidate, Bloomberg is in violation of campaign finance rules and could be liable to serve jail time .

The right to vote is fundamental to our democracy and no American should be denied that right,” said a Bloomberg spokesperson when asked about the fine repayment initiative. But it doesn’t seem as if the failed Democratic primary candidate is willing to buy back the voting rights of individuals who might be less inclined to vote for Joe Biden in November.

Bloomberg already tried and failed to buy the nomination in the Democratic primary, and now he’s trying to buy the crucial swing state of Florida for Joe Biden. Corrupt oligarchs should not be allowed to abuse the political system with impunity.
