While NFL legend Herschel Walker was busy endorsing President Donald Trump at the Republic National Convention, his son Christian went on a rant on Twitter. In a video, Christian called Jacob Blake a “crazy violent criminal.”
“Jacob Blake, oh yeah he was a felon sexual assaulter,” Christian said in the clip. “He was a domestic abuser and had given cops trouble in the past. There was a warrant out for his arrest.”
He also criticized the Black Lives Matter as supporting criminals and harming black communities through looting and rioting.
Police shot Jacob Blake several times from behind.
Blake, who was unarmed, reportedly got involved in a physical altercation with police in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Officers shot him from behind as he was walking to his vehicle.
The 29-year-old is paralyzed from the waist down in the hospital. The family’s lawyer said he may never walk again.
At the time of the shooting, Blake did have an outstanding warrant. The charges issued were for third-degree assault, trespassing and disorderly conduct in connection to an alleged domestic abuse incident on July 6. It’s unclear whether the officers on the scene were aware of the warrant. They had responded to reports of “family trouble.”
In the video, Christian urged for police to release the body cam footage and insisted Black Lives Matter wouldn’t “pull another George Floyd on us.”
In a series of tweets, Christian also called BLM a “terrorist organization” and called for the end of violent protesting and riots.
Herschel Walker’s son Christian also supports the release of Kyle Rittenhouse.
Christian also came to the support of Kyle Rittenhouse, the teen accused of murdering two people and injuring a third Tuesday night. Police responded to reports of gunshots during a protest on Sheridan street in Kenosha. The teen is being held in the Lake County, Illinois. He faces charges of first-degree intentional homicide, according to CBS News.
On Twitter, Christian wrote: “Kyle Rittenhouse did nothing wrong.” He also wrote that he believes the teen acted in self defense.
