The Los Angeles Lakers’ superstar Anthony Davis felt disappointed after news that the officers responsible for the shooting of Jacob Blake will not face charges.
“It sucks,” Davis told reporters, after Tuesday’s news broke out that Kenosha County District Attorney Michael Graveley decided that Sheskey, who shot Blake seven times in the back in August, will not face charges. Neither will officers Vincent Arenas and Brittany Meronek, who were involved in the incident.
“We as a community tried to support the family and do everything we can to get justice for him. For that to happen, it sucks for us. It feels like we let the family down,” Davis claimed.
Blake is paralyzed from the waist down since August’s incident. During the NBA season restart on Walt Dinsey World, the Bucks decided to not take up the court for a scheduled playoff game against the Orlando Magic following the police shooting of Blake.
The NBA players tried to raise awareness on racial discrimination and social injustice, especially during the last few months.
While playing in the Orlando bubble the NBA superstars call for justice for the likes of Blake, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and other victims of police brutality.
