Kawhi Leonard has spoken out following Winsconsin prosecutors failing to charge police officer Rusten Sheskey for the shooting of Jacob Blake.
Blake, an African American, is now paralyzed from the waist down following the injuries sustained in the incident that took place in August last year.
“It keeps happening,” Leonard told reporters after his Los Angeles Clippers lost to the San Antonio Spurs. “We are still doing things to better the community, try to get better laws for the officers with those firearms but it’s sad…hopefully in the future we can get these guys to stop releasing fire on us.”
Per Todd Richmond and Michael Tam of the Associated Press, Kenosha County District attorney Michael Gravely said he decided not to file criminal charges against the officer because he could not find evidence that disproved his self-defense claims.
