As outlined by Police Chief Daniel Miskinis:
“The Kenosha Police use of force incident on August 23, 2020 was investigated by an outside agency; has been reviewed by an independent expert as well as the Kenosha County District Attorney. Officer Sheskey was not charged with any wrong doing. He acted within the law and was consistent with training. This incident was also reviewed internally. Officer Sheskey was found to have been acting within policy and will not be subjected to discipline.”
The Jacob Blake situation late last year in Kenosha, Wisconsin caught a wave of public backlash comparable to the George Floyd fallout. Despite the widespread reports claiming Blake was unarmed, he had a knife on him. The August 2020 altercation between Blake and police ended with Blake shot in the back seven times and was left paralyzed.
