Civil rights charges will not be pursued against the Wisconsin police officer who shot Jacob Blake last year, partially paralyzing him, the Department of Justice announced Friday.

Kenosha Police Officer Rusten Sheskey, who is white, fired seven times at Blake, who is Black, on Aug. 23, 2020, after responding to a report of a domestic dispute, authorities said.

Following an investigation, federal prosecutors said the evidence obtained was insufficient to prove Sheskey “willfully used excessive force,” the DOJ said in a statement.

Officer who shot Jacob Blake won’t face civil rights charges, DOJ says – ABC News (go.com)

The same Feds that are going after parents as terrorists for loudly voicing their opinions at PTA meetings and treating Americans as parishioners of war for trespassing in Congress on Jan 6 could not find enough evidence to indict Officer Sheskey who already had been cleared by the local Prosecutor and his own department.

The father of Jacob Blake had this to say:

I was expecting more from the administration than this. I was expecting much more than this,” he said. “I believe that we’re in a systematic racist system, and that this system was not set up for us. So I didn’t expect the system to work for us, because it never works for us. It wasn’t made for us.”
Blake’s father said he disagrees that Sheskey didn’t willfully use excessive force.
“Seven times in the back is excessive,” he said. “I don’t care if you’re a dog. Seven times in the back, that’s not excessive?”

Basically he was stating that the current federal officials, since thy openly curry the Black vote, should have gone and imprisoned the officer even though the evidence simply did not exist of his guilt. And then he blames racism and the usual platitudes. And no, seven shots in the back are not excessive force if that is what it took to stop Blake. The question is never the number of shots but if they were shot during or after the the attack. You can shoot one bad guy once in the front and ceases being a threat, shooting him again makes you now a criminal. That was only 2 shots, but the second one was excessive and so was your use of force.

So, what is going to happen in Kenosha? Is BLM going to go out and “almost peacefully” protest or their expiration date is past and are too busy buying multi million homes?

We will see.

  1. So he is okay with his son being a rapist on the run and with his son harassing his victim and with his son trying to grab a knife to attack the police after they tried to detain him?

  2. I bet the DOJ spokesperson who delivered that news had to have oxygen administered after nearly choking on that statement. Surprised “Show me the man and I’ll show you the crime” Garland couldn’t find something to charge him with.
