Structures Set Ablaze in Kenosha on Second Night of Protests

Several buildings were set ablaze in Kenosha, Wisconsin, late on Monday, August 24, into Tuesday, as protests against the shooting of Jacob Blake by police flared in the city for the second night. Blake, 29, was shot by police several times and was hospitalized in serious condition on Sunday. On Tuesday, Blake’s father said the shooting had left his son paralyzed from the waist down, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Protests erupted in Kenosha on Sunday and again on Monday, also spreading to cities such as Madison; Portland, Oregon; Washington; and Los Angeles.
