UPDATE: Wisconsin Department Of Justice Confirms Jacob Blake Was Armed When He Was Shot

BlueLivesMatter.Blue: Wisconsin DOJ Confirms Jacob Blake Was Armed When He Was Shot

“During the investigation following the initial incident, Mr. Blake admitted that he had a knife in his possession,” a Wisconsin DOJ statement said. “DCI agents recovered a knife from the driver’s side floorboard of Mr. Blake’s vehicle. A search of the vehicle located no additional weapons.”

The incident...began...when officers responded to a call about a domestic disturbance...The woman who called 911 told dispatchers that Blake “isn’t supposed to be there and he took the complainant’s keys and is refusing to give them back...”

The dispatcher advised the responding officers that there was an alert for a wanted person at that address...Blake had a warrant from another domestic incident in May...He was wanted on charges of third-degree sexual assault, trespassing, and disorderly conduct in connection with domestic abuse that occurred at the same address...

The witness who filmed...the first viral video that was released...told NBC News...“They were also yelling drop the knife. I didn’t see any weapons in his hands, he wasn’t being violent.” (But his) video revealed an object in Blake’s left hand...that looked like a curved-blade knife...(and a) second video released proved that witnesses’ reports that Blake wasn’t fighting with police before he was shot were untrue...
