It took three days for the Wisconsin Department of Justice to reveal Jacob Blake told police he had a knife in his car, after he fought with two officers, ignored orders, opened his car door and reached into the car.
Why did it take so long? Incompetence or collusion?
An arrest warrant existed for Blake who had been charged with sexual assault, trespassing and disorderly conduct on July 6, yet records allegedly reveal no further details. Also Blake resisted arrest in 2015 after an incident where he allegedly pointed a gun during an altercation.
Video of Blake fighting with police, largely ignored by the media, appeared two days after riots. Why so long to release?
Democrat governor Tony Evers immediately injected racism into Blake’s shooting, stating on Aug. 23 that officials have “failed to recognize the racism in our state and our country for far too long.”
The dangers police officers face from knives is horrifying, with real life examples and reenactments depicted in “Surviving Edged Weapons.”
