Jacob Blake's uncle files a civil rights lawsuit against Kenosha officials over his 2021 arrest
An uncle of Jacob Blake, whose shooting by a white police officer sparked days of sometimes violent protest in Kenosha in 2020,
has sued law enforcement officials over his arrest following the shooting.
Justin Blake's federal lawsuit lists as respondents Kenosha County,
Sheriff David Beth and several deputies, some of whom aren't identified by name.
It claims violations of Blake's right to free speech, excessive force and detention and other causes of action.
Justin Blake was protesting silently outside the Kenosha Public Safety Building around 10 p.m. April 25, 2021.
He and other protesters were arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
Blake's lawsuit says officers knew he was Jacob Blake's uncle, and that Blake was neither disorderly nor obstructive.
