Police largely silent as outrage builds over Blake shooting
But the near-silence from the Kenosha department and state authorities is at odds with what an increasing number of American police forces are doing in the wake of high-profile shootings with the potential to cause unrest. Investigators havent explained why police drew guns on Blake and why the officer opened fire. Blake survived but is paralyzed, and it would take a miracle for him to walk again, family attorney Ben Crump said Tuesday. Kenosha Police Chief Daniel Miskinis said Wednesday that his department has few details about the Blake shooting because another agency the Wisconsin Department of Justice is investigating, as required by state law. The New York Police Department sends a top official to the scene of every shooting by an officer and holds a news conference within hours.
