There are fears of further protests and potential riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin after it was ruled that a police officer who shot and seriously wounded 29-year-old black man, Jacob Blake, in August will not face any charges.

Office Rusten Sheskey shot and wounded Blake after being called to a complaint by a woman who claimed Blake had stolen her car keys. The woman, a former girlfriend of Blake had previously reported him for sexual assault.

When police arrive at the scene Blake ignored police order then went to grab something from his car before police shot him seven times.

The shooting sparked protests by Black Lives Matter, Antifa and other leftist groups which quickly turned into an orgy of violence, looting and arson.

In one incident during the riots, three criminals, one a convicted child rapist, attacked a 17-year-old volunteer, Chris Kyle, who was forced to shoot them with his AR-15 after they knocked him to the ground and attempted to cave his head in with a skateboard.

Two of the criminals, including the paedophile, were killed.
