The Justice Department announced it will not file civil rights charges against Rusten Sheskey, the police officer who shot Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin in the summer of 2020, citing a lack of evidence proving the use of excessive force. The shooting left Blake paralyzed from the waist down and sparked several days of violent protests.
