LJacob Blake may never be able to stand on his feet and walk again after being brutally shot seven times by a Kenosha police officer, but that didn’t deter the authorities from handcuffing him to his hospital bed.
The Chicago Sun Times, reports that Jacob Blake’s father revealed that the 29-year-old was handcuffed to his hospital bed when he went to visit him.
“I hate it that he was laying in that bed with the handcuff onto the bed. He can’t go anywhere. Why do you have him cuffed to the bed?” Blake’s father said.
“What was he arrested for?”
He also shared that Jacob seemed confused and dazed
, “I told him, ’You thought Daddy wasn’t going to see my son?’ He grabbed my hand, held it real tight and started weeping, telling me how much he loved me.”
His dad is hoping that Jacob can return home once his hospital stay is over. The officer who shot him, has been identified as Rusten Sheskey, and is currently on administrative leave, as well as the other officers involved.
Jacob’s parents got emotional on Tuesday as they spoke outside the Kenosha County Courthouse about their son being brutally shot and his current condition, the family’s lawyer revealed that it would come as a miracle if he ever walks again.
