Why Jacob Blake Had a Warrant Out for His Arrest

https://nypost.com/2020/08/28/this-is-why-jacob-blake-had-a-warrant-out-for-his-arrest/

 

The cops involved in the shooting of Jacob Blake — which touched off a fresh wave of angry, anti-police sentiment across the country — were attempting to arrest him for violating a restraining order stemming from an alleged sexual assault, The Post has learned.

 

Blake, 29, was forbidden from going to the Kenosha home of his alleged victim from the May 3 incident, and police were dispatched Sunday following a 911 call saying he was there.  The responding officers were aware he had an open warrant for felony sexual assault, according to dispatch records and the Kenosha Professional Police Association, which released a statement on the incident on Friday.

 

Blake, who was paralyzed in the shooting, had been handcuffed to his hospital bed due to the warrant, which was vacated Friday, according to a statement released by his lawyer, Benjamin Crump. His restraints were removed, but he is still facing the criminal charges, Crump said.
Blake is accused in the criminal complaint, which was obtained by The Post, of breaking into the home of a woman he knew and sexually assaulting her.  The victim, who is only identified by her initials in the paperwork, told police she was asleep in bed with one of her children when Blake came into the room around 6 a.m. and allegedly said, “I want my sh-t,” the record states.

She told cops Blake then used his finger to sexually assault her, sniffed it and said, “Smells like you’ve been with other men,” the criminal complaint alleges.

 

The officer who took her statement said she “had a very difficult time telling him this and cried as she told how the defendant assaulted her.”  The alleged victim said Blake “penetrating her digitally caused her pain and humiliation and was done without her consent” and she was “very humiliated and upset by the sexual assault,” the record states.  She told police she “was upset but collected herself” and then allegedly ran out the front door after Blake, the complaint says. She then realized her car was missing, checked her purse and saw the keys were missing and “immediately called 911,” the complaint alleges.  The alleged victim told cops she has known him for eight years and claims that he physically assaults her “around twice a year when he drinks heavily.”

 

Police filed charges against him for felony sexual assault, trespassing and domestic abuse in July when a warrant was issued for his arrest.  On Sunday, within three minutes of responding to the 911 call, Blake was shot seven times in the back as he attempted to get into his SUV.

 

Calls to Blake’s fiancee, Crump and the Kenosha Police Department have gone unreturned.

Well, the reason for the warrant is hardly related to shooting an unarmed American citizen in the back as they served it.

Indeed, Rich.  A taser would have been far more appropriate if indeed the cops felt threatened.

Most intelligent people will follow the directions of a police officer and not try to fight them, rebel in any form, or pull a dangerous weapon on them.  Some are belligerent and they ultimately wind up shot, maimed, or dead.

 

Say no to Joe!

Not Happening continues to claim Blake had a knife in his hand, so he therefore posed a deadly threat to the 3 officers on the scene who had a right to shoot him in the back 7 times. 

 

For every fair person in America, please carefully watch the video and decide for yourself by answering the following questions.

 

1. Was Blake walking AWAY from the 3 officers the entire time? Or at any point in time, did he turn and face the officers in a threatening manner?

2. Were Blake's hands EMPTY or did you see a knife in either hand?

3. Where was Blake shot 7 times? Was it in the chest or his back?

4. Were there innocent bystanders on the opposite side of the vehicle who could have easily been shot by a stray bullet?

He did and I have as much proof as you have - NONE!  You can look for all kinds of proof but the real proof is in the court room.  Your claim is about as trustworthy as nothing!

Isn't it interesting that NH is changing his story? After uploading numerous posts claiming Blake had a knife in his hands, he now says only the courts would decide?

 

Carefully watch the video. One does not have to be an FBI agent to see that:

1. Blake was walking away from the officers the entire time and

2. Blake's hands were empty. And

3. There were innocent bystanders on the opposite side of the car who could have easily been killed by a stray bullet.

I'm not changing my story one bit.  It's obvious that a stubborn liberal is impossible to convince, so I just stated the obvious - YOU will lose in court (your ideas)!

 

 

Use that critical thinking skill you claim to have and just say no to Joe!

Elsewhere, liberals whine about conservatives having no of empathy for Blacks.  When George Floyd died, I thought, "There except by the grace of God go I."  Excuse me, if I think that doesn't apply to Jacob Blake.

"You were a witness to that shooting"

I watched the video multiple times. It is very clear that:

1. He was walking away from the 3 officers. He never turned towards the officers in a threatening manner. 

2. His hands were EMPTY.

3. There were 3 children in the vehicle and innocent bystanders on the opposite side of the vehicle, who could have easily been killed by a stray bullet.

 

Make Believe Scenario

 

If Blake had a knife in his hands and if he was approaching the officers in a threatening manner, they would have had every right to use deadly force.  But that is NOT what happened.

In Trump World, they believe whatever they're told by FOX. Getting the FACTS and the TRUTH means nothing to them. That's why they support a pathological liar like Trump.. They make up anything which complies with their view of the world. That's why you see bogus comments such as the following. 

 

"he pulled a knife where the cops were left no choice"

 

Excuse me, there was NO knife, the man was UNARMED when he was shot 7 times in the back In addition, he was walking away from the officers, which meant he wasn't a threat.

You were a witness to that shooting or just some left wing drivel?

 

Jacob Blake, claiming that Blake himself was armed with a knife during his altercation with police and that he fought with them prior to being shot by an officer.

Doesn't matter what he's charged with.  That makes an arrest legitimate.  But nothing about a person's past justifies the use of deadly force within the moment.  The reasonableness of force used depends solely on situation at the time and whether the person presented a threat to the police or to others.    Doesn't matter if the suspect is Mother Teresa or the Son of Sam.

"Sounds like the left feel that sexual assault is a misdemeanor and that you should be let off with a warning!"

 

It only sounds that way in Trump World where they offer the FALSE choice of letting him go or shooting him 7 times in the back. In the real world, reasonable people expect police officers to physically ARREST the suspect, but they do not want officers shooting an unarmed suspect in the back 7 times.

Only in the Obama cult do they think the arrest wasn't attempted and failed with resistance and then attempted to flee and when the cops pulled their gun he pulled a knife where the cops were left no choice.  But the courts will figure the sequence of events out and the then will you say the felon got what he deserved?  I doubt it.

 

At the polls, say no to Joe!

Republicans believe all Warrants should be treated as if they said "FIND THIS MAN AND KILL HIM". Saves a bundle on court costs in Red States.

While Trump supporters completely look the other way on Trump's "sexual assault" of 24 women and raping two other women ... including gang raping one with buddy Epstein when she was a 14 year old sex slave of  Epstein!!!
