After hearing that his son survived eight shots by Kenosha Police, the father of Jacob Blake says that he’s paralyzed from the waist down. Doctors don’t know if the injury is permanent yet.
He told Chicago Sun-Times about his Blake’s condition while driving from Charlotte, North Carolina, to be with his son.
Senior Blake asked, “What justified all those shots? What justified doing that in front of my grandsons? What are we doing?”
“I want to put my hand on my son’s cheek and kiss him on his forehead, and then I’ll be OK,” the father said. “I’ll kiss him with my mask. The first thing I want to do is touch my son.”
