LeBron, Marquette, Bucks react to ruling in Kenosha shooting
KENOSHA, Wis. — LeBron James is calling a prosecutor’s decision not to file charges against a white police officer who shot a Black man in Wisconsin this summer a “blow to the heart and to the gut.”
The Marquette men’s basketball team wore black uniforms to protest the decision and the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks said they plan to continue pushing for policy changes in law enforcement.
Jacob Blake was left paralyzed after being shot on Aug. 23 by Kenosha police officer Rusten Sheskey. Blake is black and Sheskey is white.
