“We are immensely disappointed” attorney for Jacob Blake Ben Crump reacts to DA decision

Tuesday afternoon Attorney Ben Crump, who represents Jacob Blake issued a statement.

Crump wrote:

BREAKING: Kenosha DA Michael Gravely will NOT charge the officers involved in the August shooting of Jacob Blake. We are immensely disappointed and feel this decision failed not only Jacob and his family but the community that protested and demanded justice.

This isn’t the news we hoped for, but our work is not done and hope is not lost. We must broaden the fight for justice on behalf of Jacob Blake and the countless other Black victims of racial injustice and police brutality. #JusticeForJacobBlake

We will continue to press forward with our own investigation and fight for systemic change in policing and transparency at all levels. We urge Americans to continue to raise their voices and demand change in peaceful and positive ways during this emotional time.

The Kenosha District Attorney announced no charges will be filed against the officer who shot Jacob Blake in August.


Crump, a staunch Democrat also tweeted moments ago “Georgia: There’s still time to VOTE! As long as you’re in line before polls close at 7, your vote will count! And every vote matters!”
