Following Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s visit last week with the family and and legal team of Jacob Blake, a Black man shot by Kenosha, Wisconsin police while resisting arrest on August 23, Biden’s vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is in Kenosha Monday meeting with Blake’s family and legal team.

On Thursday, Harris commented on the shooting of Blake, “As @JoeBiden said, the shots fired at Jacob Blake pierced the soul of our nation. We see the pain and hurt of yet another Black man shot by police—and a family with extraordinary courage come together. His family is in my heart today as we continue our fight for justice.”

Harris previously served as a prosecutor and California attorney general but has thrown law enforcement under the bus to side with the mob in supporting accused sex offender Jacob Blake for violently resisting arrest.

#Tucker puts on screen some of the things Jacob Blake Sr. has said on social media, including him saying he's "with Farakhan," said "Jews…control the media…and money," and decried "cracker Jew[s]." Since CNN won't talk about these, do they agree? Comment, @MDornic? pic.twitter.com/xU5JYXesO3
