By now you probably know that the sleepy town Kenosha, WI has been destroyed after several nights of riots, looting and burning. The event that sparked the whole thing (this time) was a police officer shooting a black sexual assault suspect named Jacob Blake. The officer shot Blake seven times, in the back, at close range. That’s amazing! It’s not amazing that Jacob Blake managed to get himself shot by the police. Stupid people manage that trick every day. The amazing thing is that the officer managed to hit Blake seven times in a row, without missing once.
Since the mainstream media has portrayed this story as “Racist xenophobic white cops using their Trumpy white privilege to murder unarmed black martyr by shooting him seven times in the back for no reason” for almost a week straight, pardon the rest of us for being a bit skeptical. (Blake lived, by the way.) We now know that when police were called to the house where they confronted Jacob Blake, Jacob Blake was the reason for the call. When officers ran Jacob Blake’s name through the Wisconsin criminal justice system, they learned that there was an outstanding arrest warrant for him, for felony sexual assault.
But since Jacob Blake didn’t feel like visiting with officers about this subject, he started throwing punches. You know – just like any normal person would do!
Media: “What possible justification is there for shooting a black man in a routine situation like this?!”
Tasering Jacob Blake didn’t stop him. He proceeded to try to grab a knife off the floorboard of his vehicle. Four days after the shooting, Wisconsin newspaper headlines amazingly stated that Blake was “basically unarmed” when he was shot by police, other than the knife he had. You know, like when Joe Biden suggested earlier this summer that “When an unarmed black guy charges you with a knife, shoot him in the leg!”
The latest version of the Associated Press handbook must state, “Black suspects armed with bladed weapons are to be referred to as ‘unarmed.’”
The media and the Democrat Party (but I repeat myself) is aghast that the officer closest to Blake shot him SEVEN TIMES. Sorry, Democrats. But if you violently escalate things to the point where the police are scared enough to start shooting at you, I think you’ve sacrificed the right to be nit-picky about how many times the trigger is pulled.
The media also wants us to be shocked and mortified that the cops shot Jacob Blake in front of his three children. This is ghoulish and disgusting on the part of the media. A normal parent who loves their children would think and act very differently than Jacob Blake did in this situation. A normal person values the lives of their own children more than their own. Speaking personally and also for most of the parents I know, a normal person would think, “I’m going to avoid doing anything stupid that could result in a hail of gunfire right next to the vehicle my children are in.”
But Jacob Blake didn’t think that way. He thought that he’d fight the cops in front of his children and thought that he would pull a knife on the cops – as if the police would just forget the whole thing if he assaulted or murdered them and managed to drive away. On the one hand, I do feel bad for Jacob Blake’s children. They have a terrible father who has terrible decision-making skills, and I wouldn’t wish that on any child.
But back to my main point: It’s amazing that a police officer shot at Jacob Blake seven times and hit him all seven times. That normally doesn’t happen in a high-stress situation when a dangerous suspect is wiggling around and fighting you, even at close range.
Below is a police body cam video that was just released by the Brooklyn, NY police department. It portrays a wild police gunfight with an alleged Muslim immigrant terrorist (expect a lot more of those to start flooding into the country again if Joe Biden wins in November).
21-year-old Dzenan Camovic launched a personal jihad against the police back in June, in a story that was not covered by the media because it makes the police look good. Camovic stabs an officer in the neck with a big kitchen knife to start the attack, while screaming “Allahu Akbar!” An officer shoots at Camovic twice (and misses). Camovic chases that officer away and throws the knife at him. Camovic then goes back and fights with the first officer. That officer shoots at Camovic six times and misses – all six times – before Camovic wrestles the gun away from him.
By the time the wild gunfight is over, Camovic has fired six shots and wounded two police officers. The police fired 16 shots and wounded Camovic four times.
Scared police: 25% shooting accuracy
Alleged Muslim terrorist immigrant on meth: 33% shooting accuracy
The first twelve times that officers shot at Camovic, they never hit him. He was only hit the last four times that an officer shot at him, at much closer range. Camovic wounded three cops – one with a knife and two with a gun – before they managed to wound him back.
This is why cops tend to shoot at suspects a lot of times when they finally do start shooting. It’s really difficult to accurately shoot someone in a highly stressful, adrenaline-charged, life or death situation. It’s not like the movies. If Democrats and the media really cared about black lives, maybe they should start suggesting to young black men that they shouldn’t try to fight the police the way Jacob Blake did.
