Black Lives Matter really needs to find better heroes.
The BLM organization was born in response to the Micael Brown shooting and pushed the false “Hands up, don’t shoot” narrative. Brown had reached into the police SUV and had charged Officer Darren Wilson and was attempting to grab his weapon when he was shot. It was ruled a justified use of force by the Obama DOJ.
The death of George Floyd on May 25 which was picked up by BLM and has caused civil unrest all over the world for months, wasn’t quite as simple as it looked on the infamous viral video. Floyd was resisting arrest, had a lethal dose of fentanyl in his system, and his cause of death on the first autopsy report made no mention of traumatic asphyxiation.
It seems that the police-involved shooting of Jacob Blake can also be labeled “It’s Complicated.”
Initial reports indicated that Jacob Blake was an innocent man who was just breaking up a domestic dispute when police targeted him because of an outstanding warrant and shot him as he was getting into his car right in front of three of his children.
We later learned that it was Blake that was the subject of the 911 call and he was the domestic disturbance when he showed up at the home of a woman who had filed a sexual assault charge against him.
We also learned that he resisted arrest, that officers attempted to use a taser on Blake, and that he had a knife in his possession.
The New York Post published some disturbing and graphic details of the criminal complaint against Blake filed by the unidentified woman in July about an incident that allegedly occurred on May 3.
Blake is accused in the criminal complaint, which was obtained by The Post, of breaking into the home of a woman he knew and sexually assaulting her.
The victim, who is only identified by her initials in the paperwork, told police she was asleep in bed with one of her children when Blake came into the room around 6 a.m. and allegedly said “I want my sh-t,” the record states.
She told cops Blake then used his finger to sexually assault her, sniffed it and said, “Smells like you’ve been with other men,” the criminal complaint alleges.
According to the officer that took the woman’s statement, the victim had a difficult time speaking about the incident and cried as she gave the details of the assault.
The woman said that Blake “penetrating her digitally caused her pain and humiliation and was done without her consent” and she was “very humiliated and upset by the sexual assault,” according to the record.
Blake showed up at her home again on Sunday, August 23.
She told police she “was upset but collected herself” and then allegedly ran out the front door after Blake, the complaint says. She then realized her car was missing, checked her purse and saw the keys were missing and then “immediately called 911,” the complaint alleges.
The alleged victim told cops she has known him for eight years and claims that he physically assaults her “around twice a year when he drinks heavily.”
Police filed charges against him for felony sexual assault, trespassing and domestic abuse in July when a warrant was issued for his arrest.

So, to sum up, Jacob Blake:
- Is accused of breaking into a woman’s apartment
- sexually assaulting her
- possibly while she was in bed with her child
- the woman has been physically abused by Jacob Blake “a couple of times a year”
- showed up months after the assault
- took her car keys from her purse
- allegedly stole her car
- resisted arrest
- was in possession of a knife
- was reaching into the driver’s side of his car when he was shot
And he’s some sort of martyr in this altercation?
This is the woman that claims to be Blake’s fiancée. Some reports also suggest that she is the woman in the report identified by the initials “LNB.” Her name is Laquisha N. Booker.
This guy isn’t the poor, innocent man that the media has portrayed him as.
This is what happens when you don’t rush to judgment–more facts come out and you can see what was happening in context rather than the narrative quickly pushed by activists.
Kenosha businesses have been burned down and two people have been shot and killed because of this guy.
Athletes refused to play their sport to protest the “unjust” shooting of this guy.
Some NFL teams practiced with the name of this guy on their helmets. This is the same league that wouldn’t allow players in Dallas to wear pro-police decals on their helmets after cops were killed by a BLM supporter, nor would the league allow Avery Williamson to wear 9/11 cleats.
Really, BLM, y’all need better heroes.
[Editor’s Note: An earlier draft of this article stated that Blake was engaged to a different woman, but it appears that “LNB” who filed the sexual assault complaint and Blake’s fiancée are the same person.]
