Jacob Blake‘s father has reported that his son is paralyzed from the waist down after being shot 7 times in the back by a trigger-happy police officer in Kenosha, Wisconsin who has yet-to-be-identified. In response, the streets of Kenosha have now been flooded for the third night with protesters who will not sit idly by and let this shooting stand. Sadly, when it comes to these protests a similar pattern tends to hold. By day, there are loud voices and by night, there are loud bangs of gunfire.

The video of the shooting is floating around social media and we warn you that it is disturbing and triggering to watch.

As a result of Rittenhouse’s shooting, one person was struck in the head, another in the chest, and the third person was struck in the arm.

At this time there is no report of Rittenhouse being arrested and it appears that police who were on the scene allowed him to go free…

 

 CNN reported that, late Tuesday night around 11:45 p.m. officers responded to reports of victims suffering multiple gunshot wounds. The Kenosha Police Department revealed that one person that was admitted to the hospital late last night was in “serious” condition but had non-life threatening injuries.” The investigation into the shooting is ongoing and the names and ages of the victims have yet to be released.

Justice will be demanded one way or another. We suggest that the proper authorities choose “one way”…
