Jacob Blake's uncle: "What was done today was heinous"
Following the verdict in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, Justin Blake, the uncle of Jacob Blake, said, "What was done today was heinous."
Rittenhouse, the teenager who killed two people and shot another during unrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, was acquitted Friday
of first-degree intentional homicide and four other felony charges.
Blake also discussed his nephew's case, saying he demands the case be reopened.
"We're demanding that Jacob Blake's case be reopened," he said.
Remember: A White officer shot Blake, a 29-year-old Black man, seven times while responding to a domestic incident on Aug. 23, 2020. Blake survived the shooting but was left paralyzed from the waist down.
His shooting sparked unrest in Kenosha.
