Police in Wisconsin Shoot Unharmed Black Man in the Back 7 Times Sparking Protests

Amazingly enough, we’re already seeing some conservatives using Jacob Blake’s police record as justification for him being shot and that’s just disgusting:

A Black man was hospitalized in serious condition after police shot him several times in the back as he opened the door of a parked vehicle in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Graphic video of the shooting emerged on social media late Sunday, sparking angry protests that prompted the city to declare an emergency curfew.

The man was later identified as Jacob Blake, 29, according to Governor Tony Evers, who said Blake was “shot in the back multiple times, in broad daylight.”

“While we do not have all of the details yet, what we know for certain is that he is not the first Black man or person to have been shot or injured or mercilessly killed at the hands of individuals in law enforcement in our state or our country,” Evers said in a statement.
