KENOSHA — The Wisconsin National Guard has deployed to Kenosha County Monday to assist local authorities amid unrest over the officer-involved shooting of Jacob Blake.

Gov. Tony Evers confirmed during a press conference Monday that a total of 125 Guards members will be deploying to Kenosha.

Evers' declaration of a state of emergency allowed the Guard to be deployed.

A riot in Kenosha. It happened after Jacob Blake was shot by police. He is in the hospital.

Quote
Police did not say what led up to the shooting but said that officers offered immediate aid.

In a video of the incident, which was taken from across the street, Blake walks around the front of his SUV to his driver-side door as officers follow him with their guns pointed. As Blake opens the door and leans into the SUV, at least one officer opens fire while Blake has his back turned. Seven shots can be heard.

The city gets trashed and burned.

Quote
A large crowd gathered near the area Sunday evening, eventually moving into downtown Kenosha, setting fires and causing other damage.

Blake's family says children were in the vehicle at the time of the shooting.

The Kenosha County Sheriff's Department and Wisconsin State Patrol are currently investigating the incident.

Blake had knife in car when Kenosha cop shot him: Wisconsin DOJ

Quote
Jacob Blake had a knife on the floorboard of his car when he was shot by police, said the Wisconsin Department of Justice, which has identified the shooting officer as Rusten Sheskey.

The knife was recovered from the driver's side floorboard of Blake's SUV, the agency said. It did not say whether Blake was holding the knife when Sheskey, a seven-year veteran of the Kenosha Police Department, shot him Sunday evening.

Blake admitted to having the knife during the investigation, officials said. No other weapons were recovered.

Quote
The DOJ news release said officers responded to a domestic dispute after a woman reported her boyfriend was unlawfully on the premises. As officers attempted to arrest Blake, 29, a Taser was used, but did not subdue him.

As Blake walked around to the driver's side of the SUV, he opened the door and leaned forward into the vehicle. Sheskey held onto Blake's shirt and fired seven times, striking him in the back. No other officer opened fire.

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.

Jacob Blake had an open warrant for felony sexual assault and violated a restraining order from the sexual assault.

Quote
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 then “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.

The sad thing is, blacks now think they have a free pass to walk away from police and ignore nay orders from them. They get this idea from the democrats, of course.

The pictures of devastation in riot-torn Kenosha that Trump hopes will make the perfect backdrop for law and order campaign message when he visits on Tuesday

Disturbing images show the wide swaths of Kenosha, Wisconsin, that have been ripped apart and burned to the ground during riots over the police shooting of Jacob Blake. 

The city of 100,000 on the shore of Lake Michigan has been roiled by unrest in the week since 29-year-old Blake, a black man, was left paralyzed from the waist down after he was shot multiple times in the back by police officers in front of his children on August 23. 

Protests devolving into violence have left countless buildings charred, businesses looted and destroyed, and streets littered with debris as Kenosha emerged as the latest flashpoint in a summer of US demonstrations against police brutality and racism.

Democrats do NOT want President Trump to visit Kenosha. They know the leftist will riot even worse and may actively try to endanger the president. That would look extremely bad for Democrats.

Kenosha police: Of 175 people arrested since start of rioting, 102 live elsewhere — in 44 other cities
https://www.theblaze.com/news/kenosha-175-arrests-44-other-cities

Quote
Kenosha police have made 175 arrests since rioting began over a week ago on the heels of the police-involved shooting of a black man, Jacob Blake, WITI-TV reported, citing a Sunday news release.

And believe it or not, the vast majority of arrestees are from out of town.

What are the details?
Police said that 102 of those arrested listed addresses outside Kenosha — from 44 other cities, the release said.

Guess Kenosha's become the summertime destination of choice for radical leftists far and wide.

The rioters in Kenosha are outsiders.

Quote
Of the 175 arrested over the week, 34 were cuffed for curfew violations and additional charges ranging from carrying concealed weapons to burglary and possession of controlled substances, WITI said.

More than 20 firearms were seized as well, the station said.

Damage blamed on rioting in Kenosha tops $50 million, county asks for federal help to rebuild
https://www.foxbusiness.com/economy/damage-rioting-kenosha-50-million

Quote
The unrest that gripped Kenosha, Wis., for several days following the police shooting of a Black man last month resulted in $50 million in damage to buildings and businesses, officials said.

To help put in perspective of just how big of a hit that is for the city with a population of nearly 100,000 residents, that makes up more than half of Kenosha's municiple budget of $86.3 million.

The damage was spread across as many as 100 businesses, including 40 that are “out-of-business for good," Kenosha County Supervisor Terry Rose said during a Tuesday county board meeting, according to the Kenosha News.

The Kenosha riots have damaged business and set the economy back.

Kenosha briefly became a flashpoint in the nationwide unrest over the Aug. 23 police shooting of Jacob Blake. The 27-year-old was paralyzed after being shot multiples times in the back by police officer Rusten Sheskey.

The incident set off a wave of protests, some of which turned violent. Two protesters fatally shot and another wounded by Kyle Rittenhouse, a teenager who was armed with a rifle and claimed to be protecting businesses from looters when he allegedly opened fire on the demonstrators.

At one point, 2,000 members of the National Guard were deployed to the city to quell the violence.
