In early 2020, a man named Jacob Blake was unemployed with a long rap sheet, and didn’t have a car. Still, however, he felt entitled to use his ex-girlfriend, and childrens’ mother, Laquisha Booker’s car whenever he wanted, with or without her permission.
On March 6, 2020, Booker called 9-1-1 becuase Blake wouldn’t give her keys to her vehicle.
On April 6, 2020, again, Booker called 9-1-1 to report that Blake won’t give her the keys to her vehicle.
On Saturday, May 3, 2020, Booker called 9-1-1 to report that Blake stole her car and debit card and fled the area. She told police that she was woken by Jacob Blake who had penetrated her vagina with his fingers, sniffed them, and said “Smells like you’ve been with other men.” Booker was crying during the time she was reporting this sexual assault to police. She said being penetrated hurt and caused her humiliation, without her consent. She checked her bank account and noticed $1,000 missing. She told police that Jacob Blake has no job and no car. He physically assaults her twice a year when he drinks heavily. She thinks he broke in through a window.
On May 12, 2020, Booker called 9-1-1 to report that Blake was at her house, armed with a black knife. He was breaking into her car.
On July 6, 2020, The Kenosha DA’s office would ask Gregory Bates, a part-time court commissioner to sign a warrant for Blake’s arrest. He signed it the next day.
On August 23, 2020 Booker called 9-1-1 to report that Blake was back at her house. Police got there quickly and knew of his felony warrant. He was armed with the same knife that he usually carried. He resisted arrest and fought with police. They tased him several times. He had the knife in his hands and one police officer shot Blake.
The Kenosha riots happened.
Kenosha’s very liberal DA, Michael Gravley (D), completed a thorough review of the Wisconsin Department of Justice investigation into the shooting and found that the Kenosha officer did not violate the law. DA Graveley handed the sexual assault case to another liberal prosecutor, Walworth County DA Zeke Wiedenfeld, who dropped the sexual assault charge against Blake at Graveley’s request.
On March 25, 2021, Blake filed a lawsuit against the Kenosha Police Officer who shot him. Three high-profile law firms represented him in this case – Five Illinois attorneys and one Wisconsin attorney from Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard P.C., Ben Crump, and B’Ivory Lamarr. This lawsuit is below:
On May 6, 2022, Blake agreed to dismiss the lawsuit for excessive force with prejudice. That means it’s done for good, it cannot be re-filed.
Two hyper-partisan, far-left activist attorneys have now convinced Blake to sue the City of Kenosha again – even after other, more talented attorney’s entered a stipulation to dismiss this issue for good. While Blake is again suing Officer Rusten Shesky, he cannot sue Shesky for excessive force. Instead he is suing the entire department, alleging that he was arrested, not becuase of his felony warrant, but because he is black. Kimberly Motley lives and works on the east coast, but was drawn to Kenosha to defend bad people for free, like Gaige Grosskreutz. She is being sued for allegedly kidnapping a boy from Afghanistan. She doesn’t like me and sends me letters to my home address threatening to sue me for telling the world that Grosskreutz wants to change his name. Angela Cunningham, the other attorney on the lawsuit, has failed with everything she’s tried. She was a guardian ad litem – failed. She ran for congress – failed. She ran for Judge – failed. She went to work for the Kenosha D.A. – failed. She went to work for the Milwaukee Public Defender’s office – failed. Now she is about to fail as a civil rights attorney. The dim-witted duo now filed a second lawsuit yesterday that has an extremely low chance to move forward, let alone be successful. Here it is. Believe it or not, not a word about Blake’s dangerous behavior:
Most of us in Kenosha want to move past the rioting that tore up our beloved city. Enough lawsuits. I was even sued twice – both suits were swiftly dismissed. Activist lawyers: stop filing meritless lawsuits related to Jacob Blake just to get your faces in front of a camera. We’re ready to move on, so should Mr. Blake.
