Kenosha, Wisconsin Police Called On Known Felon Jacob Blake After He Stole Woman's Keys

According to the audio obtained by Madison365, a woman called police to report that Blake was at her home and wasn't supposed to be, and that he had taken her keys and was refusing to give them back. A dispatcher relayed this message to patrol officers at about 5:11 pm Sunday.

About 30 seconds later, the dispatcher let patrol officers know that there was "an alert at this address for a 99 for this subject," apparently to indicate that a warrant had been issued for Blake's arrest. Court records indicate a warrant was issued on three charges two misdemeanors and one G-class felony on July 7. Court records indicate no previous criminal charges in the state of Wisconsin.

About a minute after the initial call, the dispatcher indicated that Blake was leaving the premises, and that the woman who had initially called had hung up.

In cell phone video shared widely on social media, Blake can be seen being followed by two officers with weapons drawn as he opens his car door and leans inside. One of the officers grabs Blake by the back of his shirt, and seven shots can be heard.

Blake remains in serious condition in a Milwaukee hospital.

Kenosha police opened fire less than 5 minutes after being called: scanner audio

By Robert Chappell - Aug 24, 2020

Kenosha police scanner audio indicates that police opened fire on 29-year-old Jacob Blake less than five minutes after they were initially contacted.

In cell phone video shared widely on social media, Blake can be seen being followed by two officers with weapons drawn as he opens his car door and leans inside. One of the officers grabs Blake by the back of his shirt, and seven shots can be heard.

Blake remains in serious condition in a Milwaukee hospital.

According to the audio obtained by Madison365, someone called police to report that Blake was at her home and wasn't supposed to be, and that he had taken her keys and was refusing to give them back. A dispatcher relayed this message to patrol officers at about 5:11 pm Sunday.

About 30 seconds later, she let patrol officers know that there was "an alert at this address for a 99 for this subject," apparently to indicate that a warrant had been issued for Blake's arrest. Court records indicate a warrant was issued on three charges two misdemeanors and one G-class felony on July 7. Court records indicate no previous criminal charges in the state of Wisconsin.

About a minute after the initial call, the dispatcher indicated that Blake was leaving the premises, and that the woman who had initially called had hung up.

Just five minutes after the initial call, an officer can be heard reporting shots fired, and the dispatcher acknowledged the report. Additional officers were then dispatched to the scene, with another officer asking responding officers to verify that the officers initially on the scene were ok.

About 40 seconds after the report that shots had been fired, an officer on the scene requests "rescue ASAP," presumably for Blake. About two minutes after the shots fired call, another officer reported that all officers on the scene are ok.

The state Department of Justice is leading the investigation. Governor Tony Evers and Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes are delivering remarks via online video this afternoon. The remarks are available here and we will have an update on those remarks later this afternoon.

"Court records indicate no previous criminal charges in the state of Wisconsin."

You say that there was a warrant out for his arrest but included the above. In this country, it's trial first, sentence afterwards (if convicted).

If he hasn't been tried for anything, let alone convicted, he CAN'T be a "known felon". Not YET. Not at the time when shot. So that is B.S.

Warrant *NOT REQUIRED* to arrest for Felony offense 25.Aug.2020 15:51

Jacob Blake is a DIRTBAG WOMAN-AND-CHILD *ABUSER*

police were called at incident, because HE STOLE A WOMAN'S KEYS

yet Mike Novack and the morons who donated $1 million (<-Lol, I need to change my line of work...) to his GoFundMe
think he's a saint.

Arrest Warrant - An arrest warrant is issued by a judge or magistrate and must be supported by a signed and sworn affidavit showing probable cause that a specific crime has been committed, and that the person(s) named in the warrant committed said crime. An arrest warrant is a warrant issued by a public officer which authorizes the arrest and detention of an individual. In most jurisdictions, an arrest warrant is required for misdemeanors that do not occur within view of a police officer. However, as long as police have the necessary probable cause, a warrant is usually not needed to arrest someone suspected of a felony.


 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arrest_warrant

No known or reckless falsehoods

A warrant is invalid if the defendant challenging the arrest warrant can show, by a preponderance of the evidence, that:

Specific parts of the affidavit the police submitted are false.
The police either knowingly falsified them or made them with reckless disregard as to their truth or falsity.
Excluding the false statements, the remainder of the affidavit would not have established probable cause to arrest.[20]

hey Mike Novack hint hint: "Known" and "Proven" 25.Aug.2020 15:58

semantics

are two *different* words with *different* meanings

( "proven" aka "convicted"...... "known" =/= "proven" or "convicted" )

Police: K9 Dozer Helps Subdue Man Who Pulled Gun at Bar

by Racine County Eye September 22nd, 2015

Racine police say K9 Dozer had to help officers take a man into custody when the man refused to go quietly into custody after he pulled a gun at a local bar.

Jacob Blake, 24, of Racine, was charged Monday in Racine County Circuit Court with one felony count of resisting arrest causing a soft tissue injury to a police officer and one misdemeanor count each of carrying a concealed weapon, carrying a firearm while intoxicated, endangering safety-use of a dangerous weapon, and disorderly conduct. If convicted, he will face up to 8-1/2 years in prison and/or up to $50,000 in fines.

According to the criminal complaint, Blake and two women were at the Brass Monkey tavern, 1436 Junction Avenue, Saturday when Blake got into an argument with another patron and pulled a black handgun. Blake pointed the gun at the other man, and the magazine fell to the floor. The bartender told Blake to leave, and he did but then pointed the gun through the window at patrons inside the bar before walking south on Junction Avenue.

Police say they encountered a woman walking on Junction who was in the bar with Blake, but she said she didn't know what happened and that her friends left without her in a silver SUV. A few moments later, officers were advised that a silver SUV was traveling north on Junction with a male subject driving who matched the description of Blake, and they initiated a traffic stop in the 1200 block of Racine Avenue.

Believing the driver was armed, police conducted a high risk traffic stop, the complaint reads, and ordered Blake to put his hands out the window of the vehicle. Instead, Blake exited the SUV and started walking toward officers and ignored commands to get down on the ground. Officers forced Blake to the ground and ordered him to put his hands behind his back. When Blake refused to comply, K9 Dozer was deployed to force the defendant into compliance.

While police were at the hospital with Blake so he could be treated for the wound he obtained from K9 Dozer, officers say he refused to answer questions, but he did submit to a legal blood draw to determine his level of intoxication. At the time he was taken into custody, Blake was searched and police say he had a holster on his hip but no gun. A subsequent search of the SUV turned up a black handgun on the floor behind the drivers seat. A box of ammunition was also found, and two loaded magazines were discovered in Blake's coat.

The defendant's blood alcohol level came back at .144, according to the criminal complaint.

Blake remains in the Racine County Jail on a $5,000 cash bond. He will next be in court Oct. 1 for his preliminary hearing.

Rapist, child abuser all around POS and he is being worshipped as some kind of martyr. Nobody in the media or black or progressive community gives a damn about facts anymore, they just want a hero to rally around. Even women's rights groups are silent, afraid to go against the status quo because they might be seen as traitors and/or called racist. Isn't that what really jumps out at you though? Women, especially women of color, put on the backburner or outright ignored while "black maleness" is fanatically worshipped. Even the usual cursory and PC sanitized "facts" about what got him shot aren't even important anymore, they hear a black man got shot and it's time to riot. Legitimate cases of police brutality are ignored while black thugs become the poster children of police violence...and it's the mainstream media that's the impetus. The dopes in "progressive" community, Antifa or BLM don't realize that if it's on the front pages of the newspaper, it's there for a purpose that serves the elites they claim to be opposing. It's quite clever of them really, anytime they want to pull the rug out from under the movement they can, if legitimate cases of police brutality were being promoted, the direct action movement would have actual substance and active participation from a wider strata of society, not just young jobless types with too much energy and nothing to lose.
