Jacob Blake, who was shot in the back by Kenosha police officers seven times over the weekend, is now sitting in his hospital bed paralyzed and handcuffed. To make matters worse, Blake hasn’t been charged with a crime as of yet, so his family isn’t sure why he’s handcuffed.
According to The Chicago Sun-Times, the Kenosha Police Department, Kenosha County District Attorney’s Office and Wisconsin Department of Justice all didn’t respond to questions or give any information about the charges against Blake.
“I hate it that he was laying in that bed with the handcuff onto the bed,” Blake’s father said. “He can’t go anywhere. Why do you have him cuffed to the bed?”
Blake’s father said he hasn’t heard from the police department or the mayor, but Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers reached out.
