Statement on the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha

We lament yet another shooting of an unarmed Black man, Jacob Blake, by law enforcement. One such shooting is one too many, and yet in our nation the numbers of such shootings continue. We join those who call for a complete and impartial investigation of this travesty. – The Rt. Rev. Steven A. Miller, bishop of the Diocese of Milwaukee
