In Wisc the police were called to a domestic scene. A man tries to get away, does not obey the police, reaches into his car for something and is shot.

Now it is call racist because the man is black. Yes it is totally racist, because in the eyes of the police he was ONLY a criminal suspect.

So what happened? Without knowing one damned thing about what happened, the racist criminal rioter start rioting and burning the city.

The police are the criminals, and it has to stop, and it has to stop SOON even if it takes burning down an entire city to get the attention of republicans in Congress. BRING IT, I say!

If you are going to post, at least post the facts. The man who was shot was not reaching for anything. He was opening his car door to check on his children. He was also not trying to get away. He had shown up to pick up one of his children and was trying to help the police by de-escalating the situation.

At least half a dozen witnesses told the Kenosha News that the man had been trying to break up a fight between two women. They said cops tased him and that they heard seven gunshots ring out.

And now it seems he is tragically paralyzed from the incident.

That is a complete falsehood. There are police and there are criminal. Police are hired to arrest criminals no matter what color they are. Simple as that.

Why did you lie about him "reaching for something in his car?"

Total lie. He was running away from a possible crime scene, was tased and kept running. The police had no way of knowing what he was reaching for in the car. Quit making up **** to cover the actions of a criminal.

You don't know that, nobody knows that because the details haven't been released. So stop making **** up. Jacob Blake has undergone several surgeries and is paralyzed from the waist down. He's in a coma. If he survives there will be a massive lawsuit. Count on it. The police are mum on the details so far, but the public will hear the truth. There were many onlookers to this crime.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/08/23/kenosha-police-shooting-video-wisconsin/
"Police shot Jacob Blake, who witnesses said had been trying to break up an argument between two women, as he walked back toward his silver SUV on Sunday, an officer trailing behind. As three of Blake’s sons looked on from the vehicle, the officer fired seven times toward Blake’s back at close range. The incident was caught on video, which immediately ricocheted across the Internet."

I reported what witnesses have said. Were you there? Do you have information to share with the police about the incident?

Predictable... "Logical1" making things up, and going off on a tangent about it.

What do you expect? Some people can't tell the difference between walking and running and assume everyone else is just as stupid.

Have they said what he was carrying in his left hand in the video? If you watch closely, he does have something in his left hand that is only seen when his hand swings into view with his white shirt behind it. Some people are claiming it is the knife that the police kept telling him to drop, but the video is not high enough quality to make it out. It could be a cell phone based on the size. The image the person shared on twitter makes it look like a curved object, but the quality of the video could easily have caused that due to the swinging motion and blurring effect.

I agree, the only peaceful way to continue is to burn down the entire city, makes perfect sense, so have at it. And if you really want to show how serious you are start with your own house, that'll show them. :cuckoo:

It would grab your attention, wouldn't it? That's the point. Something has to be done, no more ****ing around with this issue. Actions -- meaningful laws, need to be put in place immediately. Complacency, apathy and ignorance of this issue is not going to play with the American public any longer.

I'm no expert but it looks like it could be a bag of frozen peas or a pouch of Capri Sun juice.

Why are you automatically assuming that Blake is a criminal or did something illegal? And yes, you are clearly assuming that. Does it have anything to do with the color of his skin maybe?

If it was a knife in his left hand as claimed, then what kind of knife is it? From the photo the object looks like it curves forward and downward. There is a type of knife that has that blade profile: a Karambit.

Karambits also have o-rings in the handle.

The blurry photo does not make it clear if the object has a O ring at the handle.

I do think it would be best not to speculate that Blake was innocent or guilty until the investigation provides more information. My concern is how honest the officers need to be since they had no body cameras and the witness video is shot from a distance with low resolution cameras. The officers have an opportunity to cover for themselves and report only what the witness video shows while lying about other aspects of what occurred. The number of shots was clearly excessive force regardless of what the situation was, and I hope the department appropriately reprimands the police officer(s) for at least that much.

This is a prime example of why it is important to have bodycams on all officers across the country. Any officers who turn off their bodycams while on duty should be suspended for each offense. If it happens more than a couple times, the result should be immediate discharge. There are too many incidents of falsified police reports, making it difficult to trust police reports in general.
