Drew Brees and other members of the New Orleans Saints wore stickers of “Jacob Blake” on their helmets while at last Thursday’s training camp practice.
According to the NY Post, the cops involved in the shooting of Jacob Blake were trying to arrest him for alleged sexual assault.
Per the NYPost:
The victim, who is only identified by her initials in the paperwork, told police she was asleep in bed with one of her children when Blake came into the room around 6 a.m. and allegedly said, “I want my sh-t,” the record states.
She told cops Blake then used his finger to sexually assault her, sniffed it and said, “Smells like you’ve been with other men,” the criminal complaint alleges.
The officer who took her statement said she “had a very difficult time telling him this and cried as she told how the defendant assaulted her.”
Many conservatives on Twitter took issue with the fact the Saints were honoring a man accused of sexual assault.
A USA Today fact check confirms Blake has a third degree sexual assault claim against him.
Per USAToday ” The charges — which have not gone to trial — stem from a May 3 incident in Kenosha County. A woman Blake knew told police he came into her house about 6 a.m., sexually assaulted her and then took a debit card and car keys before fleeing in her vehicle, according to a criminal complaint. Contrary to many social media claims, the woman involved in this case was an adult.
A warrant for Blake’s arrest was filed the day after the criminal complaint, online court records show.”
