Jacob Blake is a black man who was shot in the back multiple times by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
What is clear is that this is a tragic situation. What is not completely clear, and what is still being investigated, is exactly why the police officer shot him.
Nevertheless, the Democratic ticket has already decided the case. Vice President Joe Biden said of the shooting, “The shots fired at Mr. Blake pierced the soul of our nation.”
Kamala Harris appeared Thursday in this video, part of her “pre-buttal” to President Trump’s nomination acceptance speech. “It’s sickening to watch, It’s all too familiar. And it must end,” she said Blake “is fighting for his life, and he shouldn’t have to be.”
As horrible as this is, we are a nation that presumes people innocent, including the cop who fired the shots, and we don’t have mob justice in our society.
