Attorney: Kamala Said She’s Proud of Jacob Blake, Who’s Accused of Sexual Assault


Kamala Harris visited the state Monday and spoke with Blake and his family.

“Sen. Harris had an inspirational and uplifting one-hour visit with Jacob Blake, Jr. and his family today,” Blake’s legal team said in a statement afterward. “She spoke individually with each family member about how they were handling the trauma and urged them to take care of their physical and mental health.

“In a moving moment, Jacob Jr. told Sen. Harris that he was proud of her, and the senator told Jacob that she was also proud of him and how he is working through is pain. Jacob Jr. assured her that he was not going to give up on life for the sake of his children.

“Sen. Harris also discussed the policy changes that she and Vice President Biden will seek, including the Justice in Policing Act and implicit bias training, to make things better for all Americans. She encouraged them to continue to use their voices even through their pain to help America make progress to end systemic racism.”

It is difficult to believe that Harris truly supports police reform when she, along with all but two of her fellow Democratic senators, blocked South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott’s police reform bill earlier this year.

cott, a black Republican, argued that the Democrats blocked his bill not because of its content but because of who was offering it.

More alarming, however, is Harris’ reported assertion that she is “proud” of Blake.

Blake was shot in the back seven times after he fought with police, resisted stun guns, walked around his vehicle, opened the door and reached inside, all while ignoring commands from the officers. After police shot him, they found a knife on the floorboard of the vehicle.

Importantly, the officers were on the scene because they were called by a woman Blake allegedly sexually assaulted. The shooting occurred outside the woman’s residence.

According to the New York Post, the woman, whose name has not been released, told police she was asleep May 3 when Blake entered her room around 6 a.m. and said, “I want my s—.” His victim alleges that he then digitally violated her, sniffed his fingers and told her, “Smells like you’ve been with other men.”
