Jacob Blake asked his dad ‘why did cops shoot me so many times?’ as family demand to know why he was shackled to bed

JACOB Blake asked "why did cops shoot me so many times?" while he was handcuffed to his hospital bed, his father says.

At a Wisconsin rally protesting his son's shooting, the elder Blake said on Saturday his family demands to know why his 29-year-old son was shacked to his hospital bed despite not being able to walk.


"My son was paralyzed from the waist down but he was shackled — how could it be? Was he going to get up and karate kick somebody?" Jacob Blake Sr told CNN at the demonstration.

"My son is a human being. Not only is he a human, he's a human who takes care of his kids."

Blake claimed Kenosha cops upheld the arrest warrant for his son to prevent his loved ones from being able to see him.

"It was just to keep my son in shackles. It was to keep us out of the hospital," the elder Blake said of the warrant.
