Tell the DOJ to seek justice for Jacob Blake
Atrocities committed against the people of this country by the authorities cannot and should not go unanswered. Kenosha County District Attorney Michael Graveley's failure to bring substantial charges against the officer who shot Jacob Blake causes pain for far too many Americans still reeling from a pandemic and the countless black deaths due to police brutality. The justice system failed Jacob Blake and, as such, failed us.
Join the NAACP in calling for the Department of Justice to investigate and pursue charges in the wake of the district attorney's abhorrent decision not to charge Rusten Sheskey with the shooting of Jacob Blake.
