“The Blake family is exhausted,” said an uncle, Rick Blake, who described a large and diverse extended family. “We are teachers, we are lawyers, we are government officials, we are everyday working people.”
I’m sure the NYT fact checkers diligently verified this.
“LNB stated she and the defendant [Jacob Blake] have three children together but have never resided together in the eight years they have been on and off. LNB stated the defendant is unemployed, has no vehicle, and would not tell LNB where he was currently living. LNB stated over the past eight years the defendant has physically assaulted her around twice a year when he drinks heavily.”
Eight years, three kids, and they never even shacked up let alone put on rings. This family is a walking, talking argument for a eugenics program. You can preach all that Christian moral stuff, but they’re clearly not going to listen. They might listen to some government sterilization incentives.
It’s also a good example of something that Lefties never seem to notice when they ruminate on the reasons for all the tension between the police and the black community. They are right that much of it is to do with the enforcement of “victimless crimes” like drug sales. But domestic violence enforcement often has a similar effect. The “police state” has functioned as a safety net which allows women to enjoy the embrace of thugish males knowing it can be called in if the going gets too hot. But unlike any other victim of crime, the woman will often change her mind, decide she wants to keep recieving the thugboi’s dick, and thus change her story. When her neighbor is asking why the cops were making so much noise last night, she doesn’t admit to calling them. No, she sounds off the familiar narrative about how raciss cops were there to terrorize the innocent African American community, and both begin to rant about how the cops never seem to care about the white collar white criminals on the rich side of town. There isn’t any ready solution other than to promote more public awareness, we obviously can’t legalize domestic violence.
