The Kenosha policeman in the state of Wisconsin who shot and killed African-American Jacob Blake seven times, Rusten Sheskey, has returned to his post and active duty, according to a statement from Police Chief Daniel Miskinis.
Miskinis admitted in the letter that “some will not be satisfied with this decision,” but that the investigation concluded that the agent “acted within the policy of the police and that he will not be subject to any kind the discipline, “reports CNN.
The agent “acted within the law and was in accordance with training,” the police chief repeated.
Kenosha District Attorney Michael Graveley announced in January that Sheskey would not bring charges in the shooting. Sheskey has returned to his post after being released from administration, which ended on March 31st.
The shooting of 29-year-old Blake standing in front of his three children sparked a new wave of urban demonstrations across the United States that began months earlier after the police murder of George Floyd on May 25.
Officer Sheskey answered a phone call about a domestic dispute on Aug. 23. The agent shot Blake while trying to access a van after a failed attempt to arrest him. This comes from a report from Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul.
According to previous research, Blake had a knife in hand at the time of the shooting, which his relatives have denied at all times.
