Breaking No Charges in Jacob Blake Shooting!

Breaking!

MILWAUKEE – The Kenosha, Wisconsin, police officer who shot Jacob Blake in August will not be criminally charged, Kenosha County District Attorney Michael Graveley announced Tuesday.

I
am mixed here. the man had and was waving a weapon and refused to follow directions and seemed to reach into a car with children in it. But at the moment of the shooting I am not convinced there was any immediate risk of serious harm to anyone.

I am not sure this is the case they should use as an example. he had a knife the cops were there for Him! He was acting in a manner that seemed to indicate potential violence.

I do think the cops reacted too fast *number of shots fired in not an issue* but not to a criminal level. It was a case where if they had found no weapon (that what he was holding was not a knife) then YES. It is like if you assuse someone of something and they did not do it... you are in trouble. If they did do it then not so much.

If you do not defended some speech you abhor then you do NOT support free speech.
