On August 23rd Jacob Blake was shot multiple times in the back by a Kenosha Police Department officer, after breaking up an altercation by an unrelated party. The shooting has left Blake paralyzed from the waist down. A GoFundMe has been created by Jacob's mother:
"This fund is established to cover my sons medical expenses, mental and grief counseling for our family and to assist our family in the days to come, as we continue to seek justice for Jacob. A portion of these proceeds will also be used to benefit my son’s six children, some of whom witnessed this horrific act of violence."
