Jacob Blake admitted during his one-on-one interview with ABC News’ “Good Morning America” that he was armed with a knife at the time he was shot seven times in the back by a Kenosha Police Department officer in August. Videos from the shooting sparked several days of riots that resulted in millions of dollars of damage and multiple shootings.
GMA’s Michael Strahan asked Blake what was going through his head while he was fighting with the police, including removing taser prongs, and walking towards his car.
“I’m rattled, you know. I realize I had dropped my knife. I had a little pocket knife. So I picked it up after I got off of him because they tased me and I fell on top of him,” Blake said.
Strahan asked what Blake’s plan was once he got to the car.
