Jacob Blake Who’s Been Arrested for Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, Rape, and Endangering the Life of a Child was Shot After Not Complying with Officers

Jacob Blake had a warrant out for his arrest for a third-degree sexual assault charge, and other charges as well, at the time he was shot. He also has a history of criminal activity and assaults toward a police officer resulting in an injury.

He has now been arrested for domestic violence, endangering the life of a child, and is now facing a rape charge.

He was shot after not complying with officers and failing to follow police orders. He walked around the passenger side of the vehicle to the drivers side, opened the door, and reached in prompting the officers to shoot. If the officers had let him get whatever he was reaching for those officers, and possibly other civilians as well, could be dead or badly injured.

Police cannot hold out hope for very long wishing a person will do the right thing, with a rap sheet like that the case of a repentant man is unlikely. Officers must act with the responsibility to defend others, that is exactly what they did. They are not mind readers, they have trained to defend and protect, and that is what they did.

A GoFundMe has been set up to support Blake and his family with over $1 million raised, that money should go to his rape victim.

Jacob Blake was not an innocent man, he wasn’t complying with officers, and was reaching into a vehicle for an unknown reason. Officers operate on their training and experience. Experience proves that Jacob Blake was a violent person.
