Letter filled with nothing but untruths

| September 10, 2020 1:00 AM

I am at at loss as to why you would continue to publish lies from Mr Timothy Braatz.

Mr. Braatz is a well-known hardcore leftist. His most recent column regarding the Kenosha riots are a case in point. The suspect shot, Jacob Blake was a career criminal who was armed with a fighting knife. He was not unarmed.

The police were aware of his previous violent history and used a taser in an attempt to stop him. The taser failed and Mr Blake, by his own admission, stated he was going to get his gun. The officers tried to pull the knife armed Blake away from the vehicle. They rightfully believed he was going for another weapon and shot him.

There were no "protests" following the shooting. There were three nights of rioting, looting and arson. Watch all the video.

Mr. Braatz lives in a world clouded by the rose-colored lenses he wears.
