Finally, the Kenosha Police Union spoke up and provided the most detailed account of what happened during the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha.
The shooting put Kenosha on the map with rioting and violent protests after the left expressed their anger over the shooting which they hadn't even gotten all the facts for.
The testimony of Brendan Matthews, a lawyer with the Kenosha Professional Police Association, is more detailed than anything that's been put out by the Wisconsin Department of Justice, which is currently investigating.
In the recent viral cell phone footage, you can see Officer Rusten Shesky and other officers trying to catch Blake. After the confrontation, Blake withdrew from the officer and reached inside of a parked vehicle. The move ultimately resulted in paralyzing Blake after Officer Shesky shot him multiple times and severed his spinal cord.
It's important to note that officers were responding to a domestic dispute complaint and were aware of Mr. Blake's violent history, including a warrant out for his arrest following a sexual assault complaint.
Matthews adds that officers were dispatched after a caller claimed that Blake was attempting to seal their vehicle and had already taken their keys. Matthews also noted that officers were not made aware that Blake was reportedly armed with a knife but would later see it during the altercation.
"The officers first saw him holding the knife while they were on the passenger side of the vehicle," he said.
Witnesses say that Blake was seen in a physical altercation with police. The witness who recorded the footage, Mr. Raysean White, added that he heard officers yell "Drop the knife! Drop the knife!", but that he did not see the knife.
During the scuffle, officers ordered Blake to drop the knife several times and Blake was tased at least twice. The taser has zero effect on Blake.
The left started rioting before they found out all of the facts as usual.
In fact, just last week they started rioting in Minneapolis because a man committed suicide, but they thought that a police officer shot him.

Michael Moore Panics Over Trump Popularity: 'Wake Up... Can't Blame This One on Russia!'
Far-left documentary filmmaker Michael Moore is in full-blown panic mode! With the election just around the corner and President Donald Trump's popularity soaring, the never-Trumper is begging his followers to "wake up" because they "can't blame this one on the PO or Russia."
“Someone needs to pull the fire alarm NOW,” Moore wrote on Twitter, "Where are the stories about Trump gaining on Biden? Below’s a poll from Fri in Michigan.

Joe Biden: Trump Supporters are ‘an Armed Militia in This Country’
The grim creeper is back at it! Former Vice President Joe Biden left his basement long enough to bash President Trump and his supporters. He called Donny J's supporters “an armed militia in this country” during his speech on violence, Monday afternoon.
"This president, long ago, forfeited any moral leadership in this country. He can’t stop the violence because for years he’s fomented it. You know, he may believe mouthing the words “law and order” makes him strong. But his failure to call on his own supporters to stop acting as an armed militia in this country shows how weak he is," Biden said. "Does anyone believe there’ll be less violence in America if Donald Trump is reelected?"
