(ConservativePeak.com)- Kamala Harris, the Democratic nominee for Vice President, met with the family of accused rapist Jacob Blake on Monday to discuss the incident that saw him shot seven times by police officers. Harris met Blake’s father, Jacob Blake Sr., who was recently exposed as an anti-Semite who posts vile anti-Jewish comments on his Facebook account.
Harris also met with the family’s attorney, who is arguing that police officers acted excessively when his client, Jacob Blake Jr., resisted arrest and leaned into his car to grab a knife.
Attorney Ben Crump released a statement about a visit Harris made to Kenosha on Monday, saying they had an “inspiration” and “uplifting” visit from the candidate.
“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,” the statement explained. “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.”
The pain of the woman that called police officers to report Blake raping her, however, was not referenced. Black lives don’t matter to Harris, perhaps, if it’s an inconvenient narrative.
Police officers attended a property in Kenosha after a woman, Blake’s ex-girlfriend, called them to report that he was sexually assaulting her in her bedroom where her child was also present. There were already several warrants for Blake’s arrest at the time the police attended the home, and despite tasering him, Blake continued to resist arrest and walked towards his vehicle, opened a door, and leaned to grab a knife that was in the car.
Harris has yet to address these verified facts, which are supported not just by video evidence but by official police reports. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has yet to say anything, either.
“Jacob Jr. assured her that he was not going to give up on life or the sake of his children,” the statement from the Blake family lawyer said. “Sen. Harris also discussed the policy changes that she and Vice President Biden will seek, including the Justice in Policing Act and implicit bias training, to make things better for all Americans.”
Except for women who call the police when their ex-boyfriend has illegally entered her home and sexually assaulted her…
