National Guard mobilised as Kenosha DA to decide whether to charge officers who shot Jacob Blake

The district attorney in Kenosha, Wisconsin is expected to announce a decision in the Jacob Blake police shooting case imminently, and the city is bracing for protests to follow. 

Mike Graveley will decide whether or not to bring charges against the police officer who shot Mr Blake in the back, leaving him paralyzed.  

The National Guard has been mobilised and the city has boarded up the courthouse in anticipation of protests following the announcement.  

Earlier in the week, Mr Blake’s family and supporters marched through the city to call for the officer to be held accountable for shooting the man.

The organisers for the family’s march said the protesters under their banners were committed to nonviolent protest.
