New Video Footage Reveals Jacob Blake Was Brawling With Cops Before He Was Shot

Fact checked

New amateur video footage has revealed that Jacob Blake was involved in a brawl with multiple police officers in the moments before he was shot.

The shooting sparked violent protests, looting, and wholesale destruction in Kenosha, as the nation’s summer of racial unrest continues.

New amateur footage shows the events leading up to the shooting – though the footage is taken from the opposite angle of the initial viral cell phone clip in which Jacob Blake, 29, is seen walking toward his SUV before he is shot.

In the latest video, Blake is seen wrestling with at least two Kenosha police officers.

Blake then manages to break free from the mayhem and begins to walk from the passenger’s side of his SUV to the driver’s side.

As he opens the driver’s side door, gunshots ring out. The video ends there.

DailyMail report: The officers involved in the shooting have been placed on administrative leave and are said to be cooperating with investigators, according to the Wisconsin Department of Justice.

The state DOJ has launched an investigation into the shooting. 

Blake, who is listed in serious condition at a Milwaukee hospital, was shot in the back seven times in front of his three children after police were called to his home to reports of a domestic dispute on Sunday.  

Video of the shooting of Blake quickly went viral, with angered protesters setting cars on fire, smashing windows and clashing with officers dressed in riot gear across the city throughout Sunday evening and into the early hours of Monday.  

Meanwhile, the police union representing officers on the Kenosha police force released a statement on Monday criticizing Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers, who immediately condemned the ‘excessive force’ used by the cops.

‘Anytime deadly force is used, our hearts go out to those affected by it,’ Pete Deates, president of the Kenosha Professional Police Association, said in a statement.

‘We assure you an independent investigation is being conducted by the Wisconsin Department of Justice, Division of Criminal Investigation.

‘Until that investigation is completed, we ask that you withhold prejudgment about the incident and please the let process take place. 

‘Governor Evers’ statement on the incident was wholly irresponsible and not reflective of the hardworking members of the law enforcement community, not to mention the citizens of the City of Kenosha.

‘As always, the video currently circulating does not capture all the intricacies of a highly dynamic incident. We ask that you withhold from passing judgement until all the facts are known and released.

‘We, along with the citizens of the great City of Kenosha, ask for peace and to let the process play out fairly and impartially.’

Meanwhile, photographs show the devastating aftermath of a night of violent protests spurred by the police shooting of an unarmed black man in Kenosha on Sunday that turned the city into the nation’s latest flashpoint in a summer of racial unrest.

  1. Its perfectly clear that the cops told him to stop but he ignored them and went to his car and opened the door as they were ordering him to stop and stand ,so naturally they believed he was going to get a gun .He must have known they thought that too. He would not have been shot if he had just not ignored them .Ive see the footage and the cops were clearly terrified he was going to get a gun from the car and shoot them .They were clearly giving him every chance to stop abd ibly shot him at the last moment as he was reaching into the vehicle .Course they should have tackled him and handcuffed him ,in fact they should have handcuffed him earlier but thats a training issue They don’t seem to be trained to cuff people straight away any more .An issue that beeds to ve held accountable to their superiors or whoever ” whoever ” controls their training programme.

  2. Big surprise…the whole foundation for the riots is fake. The Dems will take any excuse to launch their army of domestic terrorists on the American citizens.

    If this is what they will do to obtain power, imagine what they will do with it if they get it!!Democrats are the enemy of civilized American society!!

    You have been warned, America!!

    It may be your last chance!!

    TRUMP 2020!!

  3. More divide and conquer. Liberals claim anyone with melanin never does any wrong. Conservatives claim anyone with power or authority never does any wrong.
