Jacob Blake Reportedly Paralyzed After Being Shot By The Police

Jacob Blake, who was the unarmed young man that appeared in a viral video being harassed by some Police officers and was later shot several times, is said to have been paralyzed from the waist down. This was as a result of him being shot multiple times (7 times) from the back by the Police in Kenosha.

The ugly incident of Jacob Blake, which first appeared on social media on Sunday, is one out of many reported cases of Police brutality against blacks in the United States, as condemnations continue to trail this latest incident.

According to TMZ, the father to Jacob Blake while giving an update to the shooting of his unarmed son, told the news outlet that it is very upsetting to see such, and want an answer.

Jacob’s dad says doctors are unsure if his son’s paralysis is permanent, but he’s en route from North Carolina to the hospital to be with him. 

The father says along with being paralyzed, Jacob has “eight holes” in his body from the shooting, and though police reported he was shot 7 times.

Jacob’s father tells the Chicago Sun-Times he spoke to him Sunday morning and Jacob was getting ready to celebrate his son’s 8th birthday. 

Then, later that night, he got word Jacob Blake had been shot and was fighting for his life and then he saw the video of the incident.

The father asks “What justified all those shots? What justified doing that in front of my grandsons? What are we doing?”

The shooting of another unarmed Black man resulted in growing protests Sunday night in Kenosha, which escalated to violence, including a police officer being knocked out cold.

The unrest continued Monday, and a peaceful protest march through the city was again followed by violence and fires set to buildings after dark.

The young man was walking away from cops and trying to get in his SUV. His partner and the couple’s 3 children were in the back seat of the vehicle screaming when police shot him.

Jacob appeared to be involved in a tussle with the officers before getting up and walking around to the driver’s side, where he was shot. A witness claims he heard the cops say Blake had a knife as they pointed their guns but in fact, he was unarmed, TMZ report added.
