“Proud of her? She is accused of sexually assaulting her by entering a sleeping woman’s house, humiliating her and later returning to haunt her,” Kelly tweeted. “Then police helped Called for, he said he protested the arrest, assaulted him and took his knife. How about a word for your victim, senator? “

In a statement by Blake’s attorney Ben Crump, the civil rights lawyer stated “In a dynamic moment, Jacob [Blake] Jr. tells Sen. Harris that he is proud of him, and the senator tells Jacob that he is also proud of him and how he is working through his pain. ”
Blake’s father says his son is paralyzed from the waist down after the shooting.
Police say a knife was found inside Blake’s car after police shot him several times from behind and claimed that he ignored orders to drop him. His lawyers have claimed that the knife was in his hand. The man filming the shooting said that he did not see the knife.
Kelly was criticized in turn by other Twitter users, but at least one former Congressman, Nan Havarthe (RN.Y.), came to Kelly’s defense.
He was shot from behind by a white cop about 7 times? He did not have a weapon in his hand.
Megyn, off her racism chart. https://t.co/8Oq9jAUd1E
