Riots have been raging this week in Kenosha, Wisconsin over the shooting of a young black man by police.
A video was used to incite nights of violence, which featured police firing on Jacob Blake during an encounter.
The rioting has resulted in widespread destruction and looting of businesses, some of whom announced they are closing for good.
But now, the mother of Jacob Blake is speaking out—revealing what she feels about this “reaction”:
Julia Jackson, the mother of Jacob Blake, blasted rioters who have caused substantial violence and riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin…
“And as his mother, please don’t burn up property and cause havoc and tear your own homes down in my son’s name. You shouldn’t do it. People shouldn’t do it anyway, but to use my child or any other mother or father’s child, our tragedy to react in that manner is just not acceptable.”
Julia Jackson, the mother Jacob Blake called out the violence being done in her son’s name.
She condemned the riots that have nearly destroyed Kenosha, calling for an end to the chaos.
Jackson is not the first family member of a recent victim of violence to condemn riots in their name.
Blake’s mother is saying there should be no violence on behalf of her son. She said the riots are “just not acceptable.”
Jackson went on to apologize to President Trump after another family member said something unkind.
Widespread riots have swept over mostly-blue cities and states after several police encounters have gone viral.
Democrats that run these states have applauded the riots, calling them “peaceful protests.” They have refused to acknowledge the damage to homes, businesses, and lives.
President Trump has frequently called on local leaders to end the riots. He has offered federal law enforcement to each and every Democrat.
Each time, they denied his offer.
Democrats have even criticized Trump when he used federal law enforcement to protect federal property or reduce crime.
In fact, Democrats continue to promise to defund police—ignoring the surge in crime across their own cities.
- The mother of Jacob Blake criticized the Kenosha riots being done in his name.
