Blake was shot in the back seven times by police in Kenosha after he broke into a woman’s home, allegedly digitally raped her and resisted arrest.
Blake had arrest warrants out for third-degree sexual assault and criminal trespassing and officers were responding to the warrant for felony sexual assault at the time of the incident, according to Townhall.
The New York Post reports as well:
Blake, 29, was forbidden from going to the Kenosha home of his alleged victim from the May 3 incident, and police were dispatched Sunday following a 911 call saying he was there.
The responding officers were aware he had an open warrant for felony sexual assault, according to dispatch records and the Kenosha Professional Police Association, which released a statement on the incident on Friday.
The Post continues:
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.
Nevertheless, Black Lives Matter activists framed the shooting as racist and the city became engulfed in mass rioting, looting and arson.
So why would Harris meet with a person like this, and especially say that she is proud of him?
The reason is abundantly clear—the Blake shooting is a convenient way of rationalizing the anti-law enforcement sentiment and the “America is racist” narrative that has been erupting in many areas of the country over the last four months, since the death of George Floyd in May. And that’s the Leftist constituency that Harris needs in order to win in November.
#MeToo and the truth be damned. Because the Left’s only principle is power.
