Democratic Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers called on the National Guard to aid local law enforcement in quelling the riots that arose in the wake of the police shooting of an unarmed black man.
Video showed several Kenosha police officers attempting to detain Jacob Blake, 29, on Sunday after they were called over a "domestic incident." When Blake attempted to walk away from the police and jump into his vehicle, one officer grabbed his shirt and then shot at him at least seven times.
Blake was hospitalized with serious injuries and is expected to survive. Meanwhile, the city erupted in protests and rioting.
"I know folks across our state will be making their voices heard in Kenosha and in communities across Wisconsin. Every person should be able to express their anger and frustration by exercising their First Amendment rights and report on these calls.
