Kenosha, August 24
Protests erupted within the US metropolis of Kenosha, Wisconsin, after the police allegedly shot at an unarmed Black man, prompting officers to impose a curfew.
The sufferer, recognized by Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers as Jacob Blake, was hospitalised in a severe situation on Sunday night after police shot him a number of occasions, native media reported.
Crowds gathered on the scene and threw bricks and Molotov cocktails on the police, in line with stories in social media. “We stand against excessive use of force and immediate escalation when engaging with Black Wisconsinites,” governor Evers wrote in a tweet.
