New documents released by the Wisconsin Department of Justice detail the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a Kenosha man wanted on a felony sex assault warrant who was shot seven times while resisting arrest.
The document also reveals Blake admitted to possessing a knife following the shooting incident, a weapon that was found on the floorboard of Blake’s car.
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.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott Ends Statewide Mask Mandate: “It’s Time to Open Texas 100%”
Enough is enough.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott finally announced an end to statewide mask and closing mandates on Tuesday, charting a path away from coronavirus lockdowns.
All businesses within the state of Texas will be able to open “100%” after the Governor’s proclamation. After a full year of coronavirus restrictions, Abbott has determined that it’s time for Texans to make their own decision on following health and safety mandates.
The decision to end lockdown restrictions in Texas follows Florida’s approach, and Texas is easily the biggest state to end restrictions on everyday life in the United States. Texas had a varied experience with the coronavirus, with Governor Abbott at one point reinstating restrictions after a second wave of the disease.
Governor Abbott cited the success of President Trump’s life-saving coronavirus vaccine in bringing an end to COVID-19 restrictions. He indicated that the risk of the virus will remain, but that vaccinating vulnerable populations and allowing businesses was the right course ahead for the Lone Star State. The restrictions end on Wednesday.
Abbott believes that nearly all Texans ages 60 and older will be vaccinated by the end of the month, with the vaccinated population reaching critical mass by April.
Abbott did state that he would consider reinstating coronavirus restrictions in the state if COVID test positivity rates went above 15% in areas of the state.
With a full year of arbitrary restrictions and questionable advice from supposed medical experts, Abbott’s decision to end restrictions in place for a year may serve as a dam-buster in finally doing away with lockdown policies. With Trump no longer in office, blue states may soon follow, having lost their excuse.
