The Bucks stopped here. A playoff strike led by the Milwaukee Bucks swept through the NBA causing the postponement of games in basketball and other professional sports. “Players made the extraordinary decisions to protest the shooting by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin on Sunday of Jacob Blake, a Black man, apparently in the back while three of his children looked on.”

+ “A white, 17-year-old police admirer was arrested Wednesday after two people were shot to death during a third straight night of protests in Kenosha over the police shooting of a Black man, Jacob Blake. Kyle Rittenhouse, of Antioch, Illinois, about 15 miles from Kenosha, was taken into custody in Illinois on suspicion of first-degree intentional homicide in the attack Tuesday that was largely captured on cellphone video. The shooting left a third person wounded. ‘I just killed somebody,’ the gunman, carrying a semi-automatic rifle, could be heard saying at one point.”

+ “Not long before Kyle Rittenhouse, a 17-year-old from Illinois who was with a self-described ‘local militia;’ throughout Tuesday night’s deadly protests, allegedly killed two people and injured a third with gunfire, video shows law enforcement giving Rittenhouse water and telling his group ‘We appreciate you guys, we really do.'”

+ Wisconsin AG says Jacob Blake was near knife. (He was shot in the back seven times.)

+ Kenosha police chief says deadly shooting wouldn’t have happened if people weren’t out after curfew. (That’s quite a price to pay for breaking curfew.)

+ “Are we really surprised that looting and arson accelerated to murder? How shocked are we that 17-year-olds with rifles decided they had to maintain order when no one else would?” Tucker Carlson defends actions of teen charged in killings of Kenosha protesters.
