Vigilante guns down Jacob Blake protesters, Trump sides with racist cops

Kyle Rittenhouse shot three protesters, killing two in Kenosha Wisconsin.

If the teenager had had a Muslim name what just happened may very well have been treated as a terrorist attack, but not in America.

Instead Trump and Republicans have the audacity and gall to talk of ‘law and order’ while police departments are at war against the communities they are meant to serve.

Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul said that Rusten Sheskey was the name of the police officer responsible for shooting Blake.

Neither Sheskey or any other officers at the scene have been disciplined.

Justice for Jacob Blake!

Shockingly, there has still not been a word from Trump directly on the murder of Jacob Blake by police, or even an attempt to reach out to the family. But protesters are determined to fight for justice whatever repression the police throw at their movement .

Meanwhile, white militia and racist groups colluded with police according to reports.

The latest outrage by racist cops has sparked rebellion across pro-sports in the US and world tennis, with fixtures being postponed.

After his murdering spree Rittenhouse is filmed walking down the road towards police with his hands up and an automatic weapon slung by his side. The police do nothing, they just roll on by. The killer went home only giving himself the following day.

Also below see a moment when the police openly fraternise with the far right militia:

And much of the organising by the white militia types and vigilantes has been on Facebook, as this disturbing report from the Guardian shows:

Hours before a 17-year-old white man allegedly killed two people and injured a third at protests over a police shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin, a local militia group posted a call on Facebook: “Any patriots willing to take up arms and defend our city tonight from evil thugs?”

It’s not yet clear if Kyle Rittenhouse, the Illinois teenager arrested on suspicion of murder after last night’s shootings in Kenosha, was among the people who responded to the call the militia group had posted, which was later featured on the conspiracy theory site InfoWars.
