Justice Dept. to Open Investigation Into Kenosha Shooting​


Protesters have poured into the Wisconsin city’s streets after the shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black father who was partially paralyzed after a white officer fired at him in front of his children.

KENOSHA, Wis. — The Justice Department on Wednesday announced a civil rights investigation into the police shooting of a Black man in Kenosha, Wis., as new details emerged in the case, a white teenager who confronted demonstrators was arrested in connection with two deaths, and protests spread to athletes in three pro sports leagues.

Protesters have poured into Kenosha’s streets to decry the shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black father who was partially paralyzed after a white officer fired at him in front of his children. The authorities released new details of the case on Wednesday that gave a clearer picture of why police officers confronted Mr. Blake, who they said had a knife.

Amid the ire over the shooting of Mr. Blake, some in Kenosha have torched buildings, and the authorities have fired tear gas in an effort to clear the streets. Counterprotesters have also emerged, and gunfire broke out along one crowded, dark street late Tuesday, sending bystanders fleeing into parking lots and screaming in terror.

The violence that broke out came as demonstrators scuffled with a group of men carrying long guns who said they were protecting the area from looting. The authorities were investigating whether the white teenager who was arrested on Wednesday, identified as Kyle Rittenhouse, 17, was part of a vigilante group. His social media accounts appeared to show an intense affinity for guns, law enforcement and President Trump.

The fatal shooting followed a tense night of standoffs between the police and demonstrators and escalated a situation that had drawn the attention of Mr. Trump, who is in the third day of the Republican National Convention and has sought to portray Democratic cities as rife with violence and crime. Protests over the shooting of Mr. Blake also expanded to sports, where the N.B.A. postponed multiple playoff games on Wednesday after the Milwaukee Bucks boycotted their matchup with the Orlando Magic.

Mr. Rittenhouse was arrested in Antioch, Ill., and faces a charge of first-degree intentional homicide, according to a court document from Lake County, Ill. Antioch is about 30 minutes southwest of Kenosha, just over the Illinois line. Two men, a 26-year-old and a 36-year-old from Kenosha County were killed, the authorities said, and a third person was injured.

Kenosha has become the latest flashpoint in a summer of unrest that began with the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis and set off soul searching across the country as well as protests, some of which have turned violent.

Mr. Trump tweeted on Wednesday that he planned to deploy federal law enforcement officials to Kenosha and that Gov. Tony Evers, a Democrat, had agreed to the help.

“I will be sending federal law enforcement and the National Guard to Kenosha, WI to restore LAW and ORDER!” he wrote on Twitter. He also wrote: “We will NOT stand for looting, arson, violence, and lawlessness on American streets,”

Mr. Trump is fighting for support in swing states like Wisconsin, which had surprised many in 2016 by giving him its electoral votes.

Mr. Trump’s campaign also issued a statement distancing itself from Mr. Rittenhouse, saying he had “nothing to do with our campaign.”

Quick Summary:

State of tensions since George Floyd incident with police is still continuing. Now another incident surfaced with another black man. Cops didn't tackle him or use physical force to restrain him and he went to his car and opened his door and was shot and killed by one officer. More protests ensued and now more sports players are getting involved in these protests.

Protests/riots occurred in Kenosha , Wisconson, the cops were present to deal with situation but online groups of gunmen(some from other state) arrived to scene as counter protesters. Some claiming to defend property in that area. One of them was this 17 year old who drove in from another state with his rifle and confronted the protesters. Later which he was chased by a few and shot at them and killed two of them.

The point is, there is a severe mental health crisis in this country and people are getting radicalized online and the political hatred is extreme. So for us to ignore what is said online or in person as just some words is a big mistake. Proof is in this 17 year old who should be going to school at that age and completing his education. Instead he wants to feel like a tough hero and thinks real life is like video games and hollywood where you can brandish guns and get into street battles without anything bad happening. And maybe respawn back into life while at it.

These people are mentally ill and media/entertainment industry has done a toll on them and as I've always been saying, it's only a matter of time before they start killing others or killing each other. I've always said too that the general atmosphere in America has gotten very toxic and everywhere you go you will feel it. Does not mean everyone will become a gunman overnight, but I can assure you there is plenty of hate out there between people and people do not genuinely like each other. They are just being professional in their daily encounters but hiding a lot when it comes to how they feel about each other.

If this hate/mental health crisis isn't addressed, than you can be sure more unrest will riddle America until a point of no return. Media/politicians and political parties in this nation all have a responsibility to stop stirring up hatred and living in delusions. Delusions of thinking America is great and nothing can go wrong for us. Only God is Great and Ever-Living. Americans need to be careful from this delusional God complex lots of them are developing as a result of mental illness spike in recent decades and return to sanity. I hope to see this issue addressed in constructive manner.
