Jacob Blake speaks out as protests in multiple cities lead to clashes


Jacob Blake, a Black man shot in the back by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin, spoke out for the first time in a video released by his attorney, Ben Crump, on Twitter. In the video, Blake asks people to “stick together.” Who recorded the video and the circumstances leading up to it are unclear. Meanwhile, demonstrators clashed with police in multiple cities overnight, including Rochester, New York, where police fired tear gas into a crowd of Black Lives Matter demonstrators calling for justice in the death of Daniel Prude.
