The shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black father from Kenosha, Wis., by a white police officer has reverberated through the city, fueling protests and unrest. There have been marches and demonstrations, as well as instances of destruction: businesses and property set alight, fireworks launched at the police.

On Tuesday night, a group of armed men, who claimed to be there to protect the community, arrived. Three protesters were shot, two of whom died. Kyle Rittenhouse, a white 17-year-old from Illinois, is suspected of being the gunman.

The voice you hear in this episode saying "shoot me ni**a" is the voice the 1st guy that was shot (easy to find footage of this). He is white and he is saying it to the mixed race group led by a black guy, but everyone thinks the kid is racist?

Wow! Unbelievable that you put this episode out without knowing anything about Jacob Blake. He was charged with sexual assault of a 15 year old! Along with several other charges! He was a thug! Here is a concept....if the cops have their guns drawn and tell you to stop, how about you stop and put your hands up! I’m so sickened by this bias reporting. It’s disgusting.
