‘He Acted Within The Law,’ The Police Officer That Discharged His Weapon On Jacob Blake Will Be Returning To Duty

Kenosha Police Department Chief Daniel Miskinis stated that several investigations have excused any wrongdoing by Officer Rusten Sheskey concerning the event that took place in August, according to The Blaze.

Jacob Blake was shot in the back seven times in total and is now paralyzed from the hips down.

Officer Shesky will be returning to Duty.

“Although this incident has been reviewed at multiple levels, I know that some will not be pleased with the outcome.”

“However, given the facts, the only lawful and appropriate decision was made.”

“The Kenosha Police use of force incident on August 23, 2020 was investigated by an outside agency; has been reviewed by an independent expert as well as the Kenosha County District Attorney. Officer Sheskey was not charged with any wrongdoing.”

“He acted within the law and was consistent with training. This incident was also reviewed internally. Officer Sheskey was found to have been acting within policy and will not be subjected to discipline.”

“As of March 31, 2021, Officer Sheskey has returned from administrative leave. Although this incident has been reviewed on multiple levels, I know that some will not be pleased with the outcome; however, given the facts, the only lawful and appropriate decision was made.”

“The Kenosha cop who shot Jacob Blake returns to work like nothing ever happened.”

Shawn Yancy tweeted, “The officer who shot [Jacob Blake] 7 times in his back leaving him paralyzed… will NOT be disciplined.”

Rusten Sheskey stated that he shot Blake “because he was afraid Blake, while attempting to flee the scene, was trying to kidnap a child in the backseat of the vehicle.”

CNN headlined the article, “Lawyer says cop shot Jacob Blake after hearing a mother’s desperate plea: ‘He’s got my kid. He’s got my keys.’”

From The Blaze:

Blake is accused in the criminal complaint, which was obtained by The Post, of breaking into the home of a woman he knew and sexually assaulting her.

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.”

Soon after Blake was shot by police, violent riots erupted in Kenosha, Wisconsin, resulting in over $50 million in damage.
