I just read that the police shot Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old Black man, Sunday evening with his 3-, 5- and 8-year-old sons near him.
His father said Blake's body has “eight holes”, and he’s paralyzed from the waist down. Only time will tell whether Blake's injury is permanent.
According to ABC News, "In the footage, Blake walks from the sidewalk around the front of his SUV to his driver-side door as officers follow him with their guns pointed and shout at him. As Blake opens the door and leans into the SUV, an officer grabs his shirt from behind and opens fire while Blake has his back turned. Seven shots can be heard, though it isn’t clear how many struck Blake or how many officers fired.
Police did not say whether Blake was armed or why police opened fire, they released no details on the domestic dispute, and they did not immediately disclose the race of the three officers at the scene.
The Wisconsin Department of Justice is leading the investigation into the shooting, which is expected to take several weeks."
Heavenly Father, grant justice to this family. Heal Jacob Blake and his family. Release Your power, Mighty God. Send Your angels now to fight for them and us, blacks, who are scattered around Your world.
I plead the Blood of Jesus Christ over this family and all of us who are dealing with systemic racism.
I bind and cast out the strongman of death, destruction, fear, pride, and all associated spirits in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
Let salvation, reparation, healing, restoration, recompense, peace, and justice manifest for this family and us SWIFTLY in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
"For I, the LORD, love justice; I hate robbery and wrongdoing. In my faithfulness I will reward my people and make an everlasting covenant with them."
