Earlier this year, Laquisha N. Booker had the Kenosha police take out a felony sexual assault warrant against her ex-boyfriend Jacob Blake, telling them (according to the warrant):
LNB stated she and the defendant have three children together but have never resided together in the eight years they have been on and off. LNB stated the defendant is unemployed, has no vehicle, and would not tell LNB where he was currently living. LNB stated over the past eight years the defendant has physically assaulted her around twice a year when he drinks heavily.
But all appears to be forgiven now that Blake’s financial prospects are looking up:
“The Blake family is exhausted,” said an uncle, Rick Blake, who described a large and diverse extended family. “We are teachers, we are lawyers, we are government officials, we are everyday working people.”
“We have a right to be angry,” he said. “We also have a right to call out for justice.”
