This article from Madison365 attempts to bury the important development under the headline “Kenosha police opened fire less than 5 minutes after being called: scanner audio.“
As if that proves anything at all. What does it matter how long it took for them to open fire? They were reacting.
No, the real news in this story is this:
“According to the audio obtained by Madison365, someone called police to report that Blake was at her home and wasn’t supposed to be, and that he had taken her keys and was refusing to give them back. A dispatcher relayed this message to patrol officers at about 5:11 pm Sunday.
About 30 seconds later, she let patrol officers know that there was “an alert at this address for a 99 for this subject,” apparently to indicate that a warrant had been issued for Blake’s arrest. Court records indicate a warrant was issued on three charges — two misdemeanors and one G-class felony — on July 7. Court records indicate no previous criminal charges in the state of Wisconsin.”
So Blake WAS NOT just an innocent bystander just trying to break up a fight between two women.
