Prosecutors clear white police officer over Jacob Blake shooting in Kenosha


US prosecutors have cleared white police officer Rusten Sheskey in the shooting of 29-year-old Black man Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin. ’It is my decision now … that no Kenosha law enforcement officer in this case will be charged with any criminal offence,’ said Michael Graveley, the Kenosha county district attorney. Sheskey shot Blake seven times in the back, leaving him paralysed. B’Ivory Lamarr, a lawyer for the Blake family, said the decision shows there are ‘three justice systems’ in America: ‘One for black and brown people, one for police officers and one for the rest of America.’ Lamarr said the fight for justice will continue: ‘We won’t stop until there is actually truly one nation under God with justice and liberty for us all.’
