(PatriotHeadline.com)- Attorney General William Barr told the truth during an interview on Wednesday about the shooting of Jacob Blake, and for some reason it was controversial. During a segment on CNN with anchor Wolf Blitzer, Barr explained why the shooting of Jacob Blake was vastly different to the death of George Floyd, and explained the circumstances surrounding Blake’s death to someone who should already know what happened.
Blitzer, who appears to buy into the narrative that Blake’s shooting was a racist incident, asked Barr what he thought African American parents should tell their children if they ask about Jacob Blake and George Floyd.
“Well, I’m not going to talk about Blake, the Blake case,” Barr said.
When Blitzer asked why, Barr said that it’s “different than the Floyd case.”
Blitzer didn’t appear to know (he should, shouldn’t he?) and asked Barr what the differences were. And that’s when he unloaded the truth on him.
“Well, Floyd was already subdued, incapacitated, in handcuffs, and was not armed,” he said. “In the Jacob case, he was in the midst of committing a felony and he was armed. So, that’s a big difference.”
Attorney General William Barr says he will not talk about the police shooting of Jacob Blake because it’s different from George Floyd’s case because “Floyd was already subdued… and was not armed ”

Blitzer told Wolf that Blake’s family claimed that he wasn’t armed, but the Attorney General hit back.
“Well, I’ve stated what I believe to be the difference and that’s why I don’t want to talk about them as if they’re interchangeable, okay?” he said.
Police officers already confirmed that there was a knife in the vehicle where Blake was lunging just before he was shot. The Wisconsin Department of Justice said it, too. So either Blake’s family members are lying or the Wisconsin Department of Justice is – and this doesn’t change the fact that video footage clearly shows Blake resisting arrest.
A statement from the Kenosha Professional Police Association also recently disputed the argument that Blake was unarmed.
“Mr. Blake was not unarmed,” a statement from the KPPA said. “He was armed with a knife. The officers did not see the knife initially. The officers first saw him holding the knife while they were on the passenger side of the vehicle. The ‘main’ video circulating on the internet shows Mr. Blake with the knife in his left hand when he rounds the front of the car. The officers issued repeated commands for Mr. Blake to drop the knife. He did not comply.”
Shouldn’t Wolf Blitzer already know this, being a journalist?
