Kenosha, Wisconsin, became a new arena of nationwide protests in the U.S., as citizens stand against police brutality applied against African Americans. CNN reported that on August 25.

"Protesters disobeyed an 8 p.m. (9 p.m. ET) Monday curfew, facing off with law enforcement outside the Kenosha County Courthouse, some tossing water bottles and setting off fireworks, according to CNN affiliate WISN. Two city trucks were among the vehicles burned. Law enforcement responded with flashbangs, tear gas and rubber bullets, the station reported", reads the story.
 
Jacob Blake was wounded in the back by police officers who opened fire from a close range as he was getting in his car. According to Blake family attorney Ben Crump, "his 3-, 5- and 8-year-old sons were inside the vehicle" at the time.
 
 
"If we don't have the systematic reform that this moment in America is crying out for, then we are going to continue to see hashtag after hashtag, protest after protest, and cities burning all across America," Crump said. He clearly addressed a recent incident that took place in Lafayette, Louisiana, where the police killed an African American man outside a local convenience store.
