Ben Crump, a National Civil Rights attorney, and his co-counsels Patrick Salvi and B’Ivory Lamarr, announced the warrants against their client Jacob Blake have been dropped.
“We have learned today that the warrants for Jacob Blake were vacated, although the charges against him are still pending. Fortunately, a man who is paralyzed and fighting for his life after being shot seven times in the back, will no longer have to deal with the pain of having his ankles and wrist shackled and the traumatic stress of being under armed guard.”
Blake, the young man who was shot by an officer in Kenosha seven times in the back, has been in the hospital since the shooting earlier this week. However, due to the warrants for violating a restraining order stemming from an alleged sexual assault, Blake has been shackled to his hospital bed.
