Dwyane Wade shares disappointed reaction after no charges are filed against officers involved in Jacob Blake shooting

Blake, a Black man, was shot several times in the back by officer Rusten Sheskey in Kenosha, Wis. on Aug. 23, 2020. Blake was walking towards his vehicle when the incident occurred, and three of his sons were present during the incident, as they were sitting in the backseat of the vehicle.
The shooting sparked a brief boycott of NBA playoff games that were scheduled shortly afterward. Luckily, players throughout the league ultimately decided to continue playing and ultimately crown a champion a few weeks later.
Blake was just one of several Black individuals who were shot or killed by law enforcement throughout 2020. Several NBA players have called for justice for Breonna Taylor, who was murdered by cops in Kentucky during the enforcement of a warrant.
