Protests erupted in Wisconsin following the shooting of an unarmed Black man by Kenosha Police in Wisconsin. Jacob Blake, 29, was shot several times in the back by Kenosha Police officers in front of his children on August 23 as officers responded to a domestic violence call.
In a graphic video posted on social media, two officers are seen following Jacob to a gray van with their weapons drawn. As Jacob enters the vehicle, one of the officers grabs Jacob’s shirt and shoots multiple shots into his back. A woman is seen frantically screaming and jumping up and down after shots are fired. The 29-year-old was sent to Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee in serious condition.
