Statement on the Police Shooting of Jacob Blake and Call for Change

Posted in

This statement from ESTHER President Gary Crevier in regard to the shooting of Jacob Blake was issued on Tuesday, August 25.

ESTHER cries out again over the senseless shooting of another black man, a result of systemic racism in policing--this time in Kenosha, WI. Jacob Blake, another human being, is the latest victim of this insidious racist plague infecting our nation. How can we guarantee that this will not happen in the Fox Valley? We cannot, until we have that difficult but necessary conversation addressing how our implicit biases are impacting how we write and then implement our policing procedures.

Gary Crevier
ESTHER President
