Jacob Blake resisted arrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin Sunday. Mr. Blake had warrants for several crimes. He ignored police commands, and walked back to his car after scuffling with police.
Some in the media like to claim he was “unarmed” at the time he was shot.
That looks a lot like one of these.
That would be a karambit, a very potent fighting knife.
And police have already indicated they found a knife in the vehicle on the driver’s side floorboard. Funny how getting shot a few times causes you to drop your knife.
Is it any wonder people don’t trust so much of the mainstream news? For good reason.
The knife was recovered from the driver’s side of Blake’s SUV, the agency said. It did not say whether Blake was holding the knife when Sheskey, a seven-year veteran of the Kenosha Police Department, shot him Sunday evening.
Yes, the cop shot him seven times. So what? Mr. Blake’s aggressive behavior earned him every one of those shots. And if he had continued to pose a grave threat of bodily injury to other innocent people, he probably would have gotten shot a few more times for good measure.
He resisted arrest likely because he was taught he didn’t have to listen to the police. He had a habit of doing the same thing, including when arrested five years ago for threatening a bunch of people with a gun at a bar. It’s a pretty safe bet that he didn’t have a concealed carry license that time either. Oh wait, he didn’t. He caught charges of illegal carry and carrying while intoxicated in that incident. In addition to injuring a police officer.
Jacob Blake is no hero. He never has been. He got shot because he didn’t listen to simple, lawful commands issued by police.
And sadly, more deranged people are looking at this incident and telling their kids not to listen to the police because police are all bad.
I predict that won’t end well for these families.
Just as it didn’t for Jacob Blake, who gets to look forward to using handicapped parking spots when he gets out of prison after this latest series of criminal conduct.
