The Justice Department has announced it will not file federal charges against the white police officer in Kenosha, Wisconsin, who fired seven shots at point-blank range into the back of Jacob Blake last year. The shooting left the 29-year-old African American father partially paralyzed. The officer, Rusten Sheskey, shot Blake as he leaned into his car. Three of Blake’s young sons witnessed the shooting from inside the car; the boys were just 3, 5 and 8 years old at the time. The Justice Department said there was insufficient evidence that the officers willfully used excessive force. Click here to see our interview with Jacob Blake’s father.
