Democratic leaders side with Jacob Blake who admitted he was armed at the time of the shooting

WASHINGTON, DC – In August, Kenosha, Wisconsin Police shot Jacob Blake in the back several times. 

Blake, who had several arrest warrants for him at the time, one of the charges being rape, admitted to the Wisconsin Department of Justice that he was armed with a knife at the time of the shooting. 

Despite that, the Democratic Presidential and Vice-Presidential nominee have embraced him.

The Democratic Vice-Presidential Nominee, Kamala Harris, was one of the staunchest critics of Brett Kavanaugh, who had been nominated to the Supreme Court by President Donald Trump. 

The reason?  She believed, or claimed to have believed, allegations from Christine Blasey Ford that Kavanaugh had raped her many decades ago.

Harris, at the time, publicly declared that she believed Ford and her claims, and that was one of the many reasons, supposedly, why she was against Kavanaugh being confirmed to the highest court in the nation. 

Despite the many inconsistencies in Ford’s account, and the many witnesses that claimed that it never happened, Harris alleged she still believed her. 

Despite all of that, and the facts that there were never any criminal charges against Kavanaugh, she now suddenly does not seem to believe the woman that has accused Blake of raping her. 

After all, regardless of how he got into the hospital, how could anyone speak highly of a man who is alleged to have committed rape?

Yet, according to Blake’s attorney, Benjamin Crump, Harris seemed to have a very good visit with a man accused of raping a woman only two months ago. 

Crump said:

“Senator Harris had an inspirational and uplifting one-hour visit with Jacob Black, Jr and his family today.  She spoke individually with each family member about how they were handling the trauma and urged them to take care of their physical and mental health. 

“In a moving moment, Jacob Jr told Sen. Harris that he was proud of her, and the senator told Jacob that she was also proud of him and how he is working through his pain.”

Wow.  First, no one knows for sure if the officer was justified in shooting Blake in August.  Everyone has seen the video, everyone gasped when they saw it.  

Second, even if the shooting is ruled justified, (he did admit to being armed), the question that persists is were the number of shots necessary to end the threat?  None of us know, we were not there. 

Now, if Blake was actively still trying to acquire a weapon or retrieve a weapon to harm someone, and it took that many rounds to end the threat, then it is completely justified.

If that was not the case, and only one or two rounds were necessary, then the initial shooting would be justified but the remaining shots viewed as excessive force.  If the shooting is ruled unjustified or excessive, the officer will most likely be charged.

However, regardless of why Blake is in the position that he is in, how anyone, especially a former prosecutor and woman could be “proud” of a person alleged of rape is beyond words.  What Harris is saying here, through her actions, is that she does not believe the woman who alleges to have been raped by Blake.

Harris is not alone in her gushing pride of an alleged rapist.  Her running mate, Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden, also met with Blake. 

After he had met with the alleged rapist, Biden said:

“What I came away with was the overwhelming sense of resilience and optimism that they had about the kind of response they’re getting…[Blake] talked about how nothing was going to defeat him, how whether he walked again or not, he was not going to give up.” 

These words, from both Harris and Biden, are extremely unsettling, especially in the eyes of any rape survivor.  In the case of Blake, a judge has seen all of the evidence and facts, and determined that there was probable cause that Blake did, in fact, rape the victim. 

Yet, Biden and Harris are steadfast in their support of Blake, all seemingly because it fits their agenda that police are bad, and aligns themselves with Black Lives Matter and Antifa.

Harris claimed to believe all women who were accused of rape, yet, in her actions she refuses to mention the event altogether. 

Kamala Harris: ‘Two systems of justice in America’ for blacks and whites

This editorial is brought to you by a staff writer for Law Enforcement Today.

Democratic vice-presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris recently appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” on September 6th, and she made some rather uproarious claims in that there’s a two-tiered justice system based upon race in America today.

Oh – there’s certainly a two-tiered justice system in America, but it’s not one divided by race. It’s divided by a particular type of classification: the untouchables and the arrestable/prosecutable.

And that “untouchable” category is a small club – and chances are you’re not in it.  

During this interview, Harris was asked if there were two separate justice systems for black defendants and white defendants, to which she replied with the following:

“The reality of America today is what we have seen over generations and, frankly, since our inception, which is we do have two systems of justice in America.”

Harris doubled down on the idea that there’s a different justice system for black Americans and white Americans when following up with:

“[Biden and I are] recognizing that there are huge disparities in our country based on race. And it does us no good if we want to solve those disparities to pretend they don’t exist.”

It would be one thing if this were a conversation held prior to the Civil Rights Act of 1964. But this is 2020 and there are no proof-positive elements that showcases that there are two systems of justice based upon one’s race.

In today’s world, if regular old Joe Citizen has engaged in an activity that has stirred probable cause for arrest – then they’ll get arrested, go to jail, have a bond hearing and go from there. And in said modern society, probable cause can be ascertained in a matter of minutes to months depending on the allegations and investigation needed.

But then there’s this other justice system where certain folks seem to be able to evade even a simple arrest.

That would be those among the Democratic elite, for lack of a better term. And among those elite names that cannot be touched happen to be Clinton.

Here’s an interesting story for you about computer-related crimes that might demonstrate this two-tiered system of justice.

Back in 2011, 38-year-old Eric Rosol engaged in a little bit of internet funny business. The Wisconsin man used a LOIC (Low Orbit Ion Cannon Code) to shut down Koch Industries’ website for one minute by employing a DDoS attack (distributed denial-of-service).

Basically, Rosol briefly overloaded the website’s servers so that for one minute if someone were to visit the website, an error message would come up and say something to the effect of “unable to load webpage.”

In that case, Rosol plead guilty to one misdemeanor count of accessing a protected computer and was put on probation for two years and had to shell out $183,000 in restitution.

Keep in mind – this was all because of a one-minute website disturbance.

A one-minute website disturbance gets this fella two years of probation and a fine that could takes decades of wage garnishing to pay off. So, what happens when you allegedly violate 18 U.S.C. § 1924?

Well, if your name is Hillary Clinton – you don’t even get arrested.

Hillary Clinton has had the leisure of barely having to say a thing about her email scandal controversy. She’s been ordered to deliver some testimony here and there, but aside from that, there’s been a whole lot of nothing done.

According to 18 U.S.C. § 1924, the following is stated:

“Whoever, being an officer, employee, contractor, or consultant of the United States, and, by virtue of his office, employment, position, or contract, becomes possessed of documents or materials containing classified information of the United States, knowingly removes such documents or materials without authority and with the intent to retain such documents or materials at an unauthorized location shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for not more than one year, or both.”

Key words here being “documents or materials containing classified information” (you know, like the type of documents that the Secretary of State would get their hands on) and “knowingly removes such documents… at an unauthorized location” (kind of like having classified emails on a private email server).

But despite the overwhelming evidence, Clinton has had the opportunity to nonchalantly evade any kind of arrest and is in a position to seemingly negotiate when she appears before any authority to even talk about her alleged crimes.

There’s certainly “two systems of justice in America” – but it’s not “black” and “white.” It’s the special elite and then everyone else.
