He was the trigger-happy cop who shot the father of six, seven times on the back, giving him injuries that have paralysed him.

The local police department initially refused to name him, but the Wisconsin Department of Justice has unveiled him.

He had spent seven years with Kenosha Police Department.

His identity had been revealed since Monday, but there was no official confirmation, until Wednesday, by attorney-general Josh Kaul.

  1. It’s neither safe nor advisable to assert one’s right when dealing with the police given the recent events where black people are daily losing their lives, in most cases, unjustly.
    Methinks it’s quite safer to obey the police order first and later tender your complaints because lives are irreplaceable once it’s terminated.
    There are so many trigger happy police officers nowadays that it’s not worth it arguing with them whenever one has encounter with them. Just stop when you are asked to and do their bidding because protests will never bring back the lost life. May the Almighty God grant Blake the eternal rest he very much deserves, Amen.
