Jacob Blake Police Shooting: Tensions Rise in Wisconsin Protests

Protests continued on the streets of Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Tuesday night over the shooting of Jacob Blake by police in the city.

Demonstrators gathered outside the Kenosha County Courthouse where there was also a heavy police presence.

Kenosha became the nation’s latest flash point in a summer of racial unrest after cellphone footage of police shooting Blake on Sunday circulated on social media.

In a widely seen video made by an onlooker, Blake was shot, apparently in the back, as he leaned into his SUV while his three children sat in the vehicle.
